Miss America

New Music: J. Cole – ‘Miss America’

J. Cole is back for the second time with “Miss America,” the first single off his sophomore album Born Sinner. The Roc Nation rapper weighs good over evil (“Am I about dollars or about change? Am I about knowledge or about brains?”) on the introspective track, which he calls a public service announcement.

“Only young ni**a do it better than the old ni**as,” raps Cole, who says, “They’ll never play this shit on the radio.”

The self-produced song, which debuts on the second anniversary of his mixtape Friday Night Lights, will be available on iTunes tonight, while the album drops January 28, 2013.
