This feature is a part of Complex's J. Cole week.
We've had a ton of fun during J. Cole Week here at Complex. We dropped our awesome digital cover, did the Making of his album, and even found time to shoot some hoops. But like all good things, it must come to an end. We figured since we've spent the last few days bumping Cole's debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, what better way to end the week then to have Cole tell us about all the albums that inspired him. Although he didn't want to rank them, or give us the Complex's standard 25 favorite albums, Cole still offered us a glimpse into what his favorite artists. Click ahead and check it out.
