J. Cole was mostly quiet during 2012. His debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story established him as one of the premier young lyricists in the game but it wasn't a tour de force per se. It's obvious that young Cole more to give, more to prove-simply put, he has a greater album in him. Hopefully, Born Sinner is that album. He hasn't revealed too many details about it but he has released a single "Miss America" which isn't fit for radio at all but that seems to be what Cole is going for. Expect Cole's second album to feature a freer and looser Cole.
