J. Cole has dropped "N***az Know," the first track to come out since he decided to set the release date for his sophomore album, Born Sinner, to June 18. As everyone knows by this point, this puts him in direct competition with Kanye West and Mac Miller, both of whom are releasing records on the same day.

"N***az Know" finds Cole in a pensive mood, reflecting on life while throwing some bruising punchlines in both of his verses. The beat accompanies the venting perfectly.
