J. Cole is making his fans wait a little longer for his sophomore album Born Sinner. But he makes up for the delay by sharing a free collection of songs called Truly Yours. The five tracks consist of music that won’t make his album, with titles including “Can I Holla at Ya,” “Crunch Time,” “Rise Above,” “Tears for ODB,” and “Stay” circa 2009.
In a letter to his fans posted on his Dreamvillain blog, the Roc Nation rapper explains that he’s recorded at least four albums worth of material, but not everything can make the cut. He plans to release the first single from Born Sinner this week, calling the album his “best work yet.”
