Ever since September 2009, J. Cole has been hard at work on his debut album. His album will be the second release on Roc Nation with the first being The Blueprint 3. The people who have heard parts of J. Cole's album say that it will be a good album. Drake sat down and heard a bit of the album. After hearing the album, he said that J. Cole could easily be the next Nas.
J. Cole said that those predictions came a bit too early, but his album would be a classic. Now, Cole is in the final stretch of the album and he said that it is going to be one of the best albums of 2010. He said that he is aware that there will be a lot of great albums to come out this year, but he remains confident that his will be among the top of the list. Because of the fact that he is not satisfied, Cole feels that he is making the album better each time he goes in.
