J. Cole, Born Sinner

After his debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, arrived atop the charts, J. Cole should have a lot more breathing room to just do him. He says he’s taking advantage of the newfound creative control to focus on cutting social commentary rather than pop crossover appeal; the hard-edged first single, “Miss America,” proves that he's made the right choice.
