Rap Release Dates: J. Cole, Goodie Mob, Immortal Technique, will.i.am
J. Cole stamps down a release date for "Born Sinner" and Immortal Technique announces that two new albums are in the works.
Monday, J. Cole finally let the world know when his sophomore album would be released. Born Sinner will drop on June 25 as Cole took to Twitter to announce the news. It was previously thought that the North Carolina emcee/producer's second album would see a January release date from the release of previous reports and a video trailer, which suggested such.
Immortal Technique announced exclusively to HipHopDX that both he and his group will be releasing albums in 2013. Tech's The Martyr 2 has no release date yet but will also be accompanied by a Rebel Armz release this year.
"I'll be able to put out The Middle Passage, 'The Martyr ' and me, [Poison] Pen, Diabolic and the rest of the crew have been kicking the idea around a lot about doing a Rebel Armz album and I think it's overdue," Immortal Technique said. "The Rebel Armz album [with] Immortal Technique and the whole fuckin' squad is gonna happen. It's going down."
Goodie Mob announced last week that they would be releasing a new album. The Dungeon Family group will release Age Against The Machine on June 18. What was initially called We Sell Drugs Too, the album will be Goodie Mob's sixth.
