Today we finally get the album cover(s) for J. Cole’s upcoming album, Born Sinner. The black art on the top is the standard cover, while the image on the bottom is for the deluxe edition. Cole also announced that the album will no longer be released on June 25 as was previously intended; the release date has been pushed up to June 18. Reportedly, Cole wants to compete with Kanye West’s Yeezus, which also is set to drop on June 18. I don’t know if that’s a great business move, but I love the ambition and competitive spirit that it shows on Cole’s part. It’s clear that he wants to be the best, and based on the work he’s done so far, that definitely seems like a possibility.
