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.
