UPDATE #6: J. Cole brings 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar to "Born Sinner" and "Yours Truly 3" Deluxe Edition as his tracklist's release confirms. Spotify users get to legally hear the album early.

After previous reports and a video trailer suggesting that J. Cole's sophomore album would top off 2013 with a January release, the Roc Nation star provided new information moments ago this evening. The North Carolina emcee/producer tweeted that Born Sinner will now release on June 25.

Earlier today, Jay-Z announced that Roc Nation had reached a partnership with Universal Music Group. With J. Cole's 2011 debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story released through Roc Nation/Sony, it is unclear at this team if his release will now be within the UMG structure. Throughout the year, Sony/Columbia Records has still sent press releases and materials on the gold-selling sensation.

(April 8)

UPDATE: TheHollywoodReporter is claiming to have spoken with a source close to J. Cole. They are alleging that Born Sinner will now release on June 18. J. Cole's rep at Sony Records could not confirm or deny the reports. At present, J. Cole's tweets last month remain his last public mention of the release date.

(May 16)

UPDATE #2: Following last week's reports, J. Cole recently performed with his Dreamville team in Miami, Florida. In this fan-captured video that was posted at DDotOmen, Cole confirms that Born Sinner is completed at the recording stages and turned into his label. Saying it'll be released in "four weeks," it remains unclear whether the sophomore album has a June 18 or June 25 release date.

UPDATE #3: J. Cole has released two versions of the artwork for Born Sinner. One is for standard, the other is deluxe:

UPDATE #4: J. Cole confirmed via Instragram today (May 20) that Born Sinner will release on June 18.

(May 20)

UPDATE #5: Today (June 5), J. Cole has released what is believed to be the Born Sinner tracklist via a Twitpic. The last four songs are credited to Truly Yours 3. J. Cole has indicated that they will release together on the deluxe edition:

The J. Cole Born Sinner tracklist is as follows (Truly Yours 3 songs feature as asterisk):

1. Villuminati
2. Kerney Sermon (Skit)
3. LAnd Of The Snakes
4. Power Trip featuring Miguel
5. Mo Money (Interlude)

*17. Miss America
*18. New York Times featuring 50 Cent & Bas
*19. Is She Gon Pop
*20. Niggaz Know
*21. Sparks Will Fly featuring Jhene Aiko

    For the people that's saying this shit is average, no the fuck its not!!!! Actually listen to what this nigga is saying. Most of you white kids can't even compare to him, y'all can only compare to gay ass eminem. Cole is the future, most defiantly
    • The black guy
      Or black kids.... J cole is booring as fuck....
    • Marcus
      You dumb and foolish to compare Eminem to J. Cole. Eminem is on another level that J. Cole might not be able to reach. J. Cole is good, but don't be an idiot.
    • Trillmatic
      If you sayings its boring, you have no appreciation of lyrics so that tells everyone that your favorite rapper is cheif keef and lil Reese. Fuck off nigga. This marcus dude your even more a fag cus you said that bullshit. Who the fucks listens to eminem? Be real

      what? women and women and oh bitches and women and bitches fuck outta here dumb kid born sinner very average, not 1 hit on the album imo
    • Warren Peace
      sorry matt, but the subject matter on the album isn't deep at all. half the album is spent discussing a bad bitch in some sort of way. a few songs about dudes doubting him. a skit about money, a song about hating rich niggaz. Not deep at all except for a track or two.

      ^ Agreed - let nas down is the only interesting track...

    Good album 3.5 by HHDX standards. Once again J. Cole shows us how good he is and why he'll never be great
  • dentaldamboy
    Haha Wayne will still kill him in sales...hell even Gucci would kill him ...J Cole is overrated....Hate to admit it but Kanye will outsell him
    • Anonymous
      That's a joke, right? Yeah, Kanye will outsell him, but Cole will do at least 200k 1st week, way more than bum ass Gucci.
    • It Kood B Higher
      MY First week sales predictions for J.Cole's Born Sinner album will be 385,000 copies while Kanye West Yesus album will be 553,000 copies but even though both these albums may not rank up to my expectations i still highly believe both Kanye and J.Cole are likely to move some DOPE ASS BIG NUMBERS their first week and are likely also to be the top ranking albums in the country next week so LOOKOUT THE RACE TO THE TOP OF THE THRONE IS ON AND POPPING so get out there tomorrow and cop some copies of born sinner or yesus whichever your a fan of more but make sure y'all buy several copies see Y'ALL AT BEST BUY LOL
