Hip hop listeners in Fayetteville, North Carolina were excited when his music caught the attention of Jay-Z. Being discovered by the legendary rapper led to J. Cole becoming the first artist signed to his new label, Roc Nation.

Because the label was an upstart, not many expected a debut album from J. Cole. But, in 2009, hip hop critics and fans were waiting on the first J. Cole album. The wait would prove to be long until a 2010 release date was announced.

Right before the summer, J. Cole released "Who Dat" and a video was filmed. Still, no album came and J. Cole lost all of his buzz until he discussed his album earlier this year. Recently, J. Cole stated the album has a release date and a single.

However, he is waiting on a sample clearance from Kanye West and then he is good to go. J. Cole also announced his collaboration with Jay-Z is complete and it will be featured on his fifteen track debut album.
