Hot97‘s Peter Rosenberg shared some very interesting information about J. Cole’s Born Sinner album during this morning’s segment of The Realness. According to insider knowledge, Cole has a track on his sophomore LP tentatively titled “I Disappointed Nas.” As the story goes, the Queensbridge MC reached out to Jermaine after he heard “Work Out” and expressed his disappointment with the single.
Supposedly there’s a song on the J. Cole album called something along the lines of “I Disappointed Nas,” about how Nas supposedly reached out to J. Cole after he heard “Workout” and was like, “Nah, fam. I expected more from you than this.” And supposedly J. Cole gets really personal and has a whole song about how it felt to have disappointed, obviously, one of his heroes in music, Nas.
This definitely makes the June 18 album sales race more interesting, with J. Cole’s Born Sinner, Kanye West’s Yeezus and Mac Miller’s Watching Movies with the Sound Off all hitting stores that day. Who do you think will sell the most?
UPDATE: In a new interview with SoulCulture, J. Cole laughed off the “I Disappointed Nas” title. However, it sounds like he may still have a record that addresses the subject.
