J. Cole Announces World Tour

J.Cole, is announcing his first ever world tour kicking off August 23rd in Vancouver.  Titled Cole World…World Tourthe event comes on the heels of his much buzzed about debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story out September 27th.

The mostly self-produced album is propelled by the lead single “Work Out,” for which the video premiered August 15th on BET.

The next single up will be the Brian Kidd produced smash, “Can’t Get Enough” featuring Trey Songz.  For the upcoming “Can’t Get Enough” video, audiences can expect a sultry, beautiful production shot on the picturesque beaches of Barbados.

So…..why would you go on a WW Tour before your album comes out?? That and the fact that he’s a new and extremely under promoted artist is going to make for some disappointing ticket sales. 

He’s talented but WW Tours are for extremely established artists with significant followings… He’s not there yet. This tour needs to be U.S only and consist of 10 to 20 dates tops..

Drake has put a pause on his R&B mixtape, and Cole’s new mixtape Friday Night Lights comes out November 12.

If you are one of our international readers or balling enough to fly out to Europe, make sure to check the dates below to see if you can catch the two emcees in your city.

YESSSSS!!! Some European fans are in for a good show. J Cole is HUGELY underrated and Drake is one of the hottest emcees in modern music. They should have done this in the states too!

J Cole is still slightly unknown but hopefully RocNation takes the necessary steps to change that before his album drops..

J Cole is the first artist signed to Jay-Z’ newly founded RocNation imprint! His debut album has been named yet and I don’t know much about the project but expect there to be a long list of cameos.

This young MC is extremely talented, hope he makes the right choices in this game though! Get em J!

J Cole Drops First Single & Announces Album Title!!!

Being looked at as the most anticipated member of the XXL Freshman Class of 2010, all eyes have essentially been on J. Cole, waiting on his next move.

Under the tutelage of Jay-Z, the Roc Nation’s first artist is showing signs of his debut album, releasing what is reported to be his first single.

Peep the single:

With the rumored single out, that must mean that there is an a title for the upcoming project.  Resources are stating the Cole’s first offering will be called Cole World and it should definitely be expected to drop over the summer.

Having so many major names dropping between June and August, who would Cole choose to “compete” with?

From The Come Up to The Warm Up, Cole has exceeded expectations in regards to the mixtape world and presented something not done by many rappers of today.

His moves, however, have been related to the mixtape circuit, and as is the case with Drake, it’s a completely different world when it comes to an actual studio effort.

Yea he a worthy signee, haven’t been as impressed with his rhymes until this point, he did the damn thing on this single, SLAY!!!!

J. Cole: New Artist SpotLight

Posted in ADS AND ENDORSEMENTS, ALBUMS, HIPHOP, JAY-Z, MUSIC, NEW ARTIST, NEWS, POPULAR MUSIC, TRUECLEFMUSIC NEW ARTIST SPOTLIGHT, TRUECLEFMUSIC.COM with tags , , , , , on September 22, 2009 by RJDAMONARCH

j cole new artist spotlight

Name: J.Cole

Label: RocNation

Origins: North Carolina

Raised by his mother in North Carolina, J. Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville would provide much of the sights and experiences that would come to shape his sound. Cole fell into rapping at the age of 12 when his cousin from Louisiana spent the summer in Fayetteville, showing him the basics of rhyming. He was instantly hooked. From there he delved deep into the music of hip hop luminaries including Tupac Shakur, Nas and Outkast, taking from them a love for telling stories with an unbridled rigor. Seizing every opportunity to write, at age 15 J. Cole found himself with composition notebooks full of rhymes but no beats of his own to lay them on. Determined to create original songs, he begged his mother for a beat machine so he could produce music solely for himself. She granted his wish and from there, a young Cole spent all his free time creating sounds and songs that would lay the foundation for what his style has evolved to today.

Feeling the need to be heard, J. Cole used college as a tool to chase his dreams. He attended St. John’s University on an academic scholarship, choosing the school so that he could be in the heart of the music industry: New York City. After polishing his sound and graduating Magna Cum Laude, J. Cole is dropping his debut mixtape, properly titled “The Come Up” hosted by DJ On Point. A mash up of dusty, soul filled sound beds, raw, energetic drums and an endless range of topics—everything from the carefree days of college to the seemingly endless plight of those have-nots scrapping for change—The Come Up puts J. Cole’s broad palette of lyrical and production talents on display. “All a nigga wanna do is take his momma from that, but they rather lock us up and make sure we don’t come back,” he vehemently spits over the cascading keys and triumphant strings of the self produced “Lil’ Ghetto Nigga.”

TrueClefMusic embraces RocNation’s very first artist. I believe The Hov’s new protege is something to watch! Click the image at the top to hear his music and add him on myspace. You can also peep the YouTube video below to learn more about J.Cole’s recording process and how he makes the music that got him signed by one of hiphop’s greatest and most prolific icons:
