J. Cole has scrapped plans for a pre-album mixtape, but makes up for it with the release of a 5-track EP Any Given Sunday #1. The free download marks the first in a series of Sunday releases leading up to his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story (Sept. 27).
“Every Sunday til the album drops I’ll be back with something. Maybe just 1 song, maybe a video, depending on how I’m feeling,” wrote the Roc Nation signee on his DreamVillain blog.

1. “Like a Star” – Was saving this for the 2nd album. Due to some other shit beyond my control, I’ma let this out now.
