Why is he a fake fan?? cause hes not on jcoles dick like?? fuck outta here! ive been a jcole fan since the come up bro n i feel this artwork and ima cop that album. But hes right! this is it right here cole?? whats up with all the music supposely you said you had leftover?? last week u promised music. my ass stayed up n all i get is the artwork?? fuck this! disappointing. this the last time im staying up next time ill just check in the morning. peace!
Lol, I feel you.
yea i feel u on dat tho
you stood up how ever late and didn’t get music, who is on his nuts? I’d say that douche above of me and your dumbass. you gave your self a headache bro. the dude dropped a couple of ep’s be thankful for that fucker. he didn’t have to, but he did. so get a fucking grip and quit bitching.
ungrateful, spoiled idiots, J Cole is the THE TRUTH… artist for the people!
Wow to all the people who are having a moan becuase there is no song. The guy has been giving us free mixtapes, and there are still people moaning about 1 song? He doesnt have to give use anything at all, but we got the album cover and a video. Thanks cole.
Get off his nuts! he doesnt have to give music out but he doesnt have to lie about giving us free music either. Shit ill pay for every mixtape if i could so i think i can say w.e the fuck i want
when did he lie? He said that he’ll give the fans SOMETHING every sunday…whether it is a song, a video, an interview…he didn’t say he’s going to put out music every sunday…
last ustream he previewed a song and said he will drop it next anygivensunday
Things also changed he was in the studio all night finishing up the album, the final has to be turned in today Monday the 22nd So I am str8 we will get the music just have patience… Now what I want is those damnnnnn teees lol #coleworld
Love the album cover! It’s perfect. “Funny how so close can seem so far.” Can’t wait for the album. That video gave me chills.
get that fake ass fan off of here!!! ayye i stay in fayetteville my older sister knew you haha but your the shit man!
i know an album cover and a video doesn’t seem like much to some of us, but i can only imagine how emotional it is for his and his crew to finally be putting that out, how symbolic it is of what they’ve accomplished, only thing that could have made it better is a pre-order link!!! rap game got a colefuture!!!!!!!!!
u ryt its prolly a big momment for him it just doesnt seem dat way to us
album snippet???I hope so, this snippet is amazing.

Cant wait to hear the rest of that song my nig…Cole World!!!!
Iam a big cole fan but damn he did promise us music, I stayed up all night to see if he was drop some new ish but he didnt and guess what I got fuckin skool in tha moring smh, he still the truth tho… it gonna lie iam slight mad af but cant complain tho he aint jesus or nothin
That album cover is dope. Typical J.Cole + hes fine.
And WOW just from that 40 sec clip I can tell the album is gonna be classic just like hov said…
So fuck the haters it’s a #coleworld. I’m buying 2 copies on 9/27 and until then I’m listening to the warm up, the come up, Friday night Lights and whatever else he chooses to release until then.
ya dub, he siad it himself when he started it, it cud be a vid, some songs a pic, blah blah, not always songs. nigga workin hard, fuckin with this tour and shit, you gotta rehearse that, he cant always be recording damn. ya actin like its easy to make great music.
Nice cover, For some reason I thought it was going to look kind of like friday night lights with that blue theme
Big fan of cole but last week on that ustream he said he was gunna drop a dope track this week. A track that he talked up and got me excited about. So its a little disappointing to just get a short video. good to see kendrick in the studio with him tho.
No song this week is cool yall go listen work out and cant get enough.. 9/27 is where its at #coleworld all day.. us niggas in jamaica rock out to u shit everyday yow.
Yeah, a little disappointed. But at the same time, I have 3 album quality mixtapes which are all amazing. Plus an abundance of awesome songs which would have been the single of most rappers albums. But they’re only average for J Cole.
J Cole has already given us better quality, and quantity than most other artists out there today. He hasn’t dropped his album yet, but it’s gonna be here very soon. And it’s gonna be the debut album of the decade.
Yeah, he said we’d get an awesome song this sunday. And we got a glimpse. But he’s not the first artist to not live up to his promises. Although, he has fulfilled more promises than most artists I know of. So again I don’t understand the complaints. He’s working hard. Let him keep working.
How much more free shit Y’all want!! Cole world baby!!! Can’t wait till 9/27! Salute from all the Pakistani brothas. Keep it real
Actually, they are right last week I was expecting some music but we got the Cole Stream and on there he gave us a snippet of the song we were suppose to get this week and a lot of people stayed up just for it(I know I did). If nothing was said then I would understand but He did not stay true to his words. Anyways I am still a big fan just wish I got a song. Also it would be much better to release it during the day that way there would be more social sharing, trending etc. etc. Oh well looking forward to that album!!
hes prob gna drop the tracks he previewed on ustream later this week
OMG….September 27, please hurry!!!!
this fan made cover >> official album cover
that should be like a Deluxe Edition cover. Dope
i’m happy with the cover but that fan made one is seriously dope. i hope he sees that shit. #coleworld
Holy shit… that song is amazing. forget these other guys, this is like classic cole coming through in an album man. whatever doubts i had about getting this album are completely gone now
guys relax! an album cover and a snippet is really enough…In my opinion he shouldn’t drop free music until the album comes out. People have to buy something finally…
Cole, that little snippet was dope! and the album cover is so mad real! I’m not gonna lie i was a little disappointed with no new songs, 2 weeks in a row but 9/27 is just little over a month away! COLE WORLD
I love the new cover..
Also , I bought the tickets for September 3rd In TORONTO!
ima buy 10 copies , no lie
Only 36 days left. Cole Month
Was expecting that one song as well.. slightly disappointed like some of y’all, especially when he some what promised it last week.. you dont know how bad i wanted that song, i had dreams about it during the day, sang it my sleep.. no more teases please Jermaine.. 9-27-11
Haha yall dick riders need to calm the fuck down just cause youl accept anything cole does doesnt make you more of a fan i got every cole mixtape and every track his featurd on i honestly expected new music im disapointed but 9/27 where its @
Fyi the warm up cover was better even friday night light would have made more sense
Artwork could have been better too.. a jpg of you court side or on the bench looking into a game would of been dope.. but don’t mind me I’m only speeking my mind.. a little more passion/heart could have gone into the artwork.. “yea I stunt, but I’m a lil mo realer, when it come from the heart don’t it sound mo iller??”
“Every Sunday til the album drops I’ll be back with something. Maybe just 1 song, maybe a video, depending on how I’m feeling.”
It amazes me how niggas get mad when THEY don’t read something…..
I love that album cover yo!!!!!
Shoot a page view or listen to a song
cole world…even when wearing like 4 sweaters yuuupp lol
sep 3 toronto 4 suure sound acadamy got packed last time best b early
Can’t wait till september 27th ! ColeWorld.
ColeWorld: The Sideline Story 9/27… Nuff Said
Good taste of what to come… Tooo excited, counting down days. I just got the ticket for the Toronto show (again, seen the ones before as well) CANT WAIT. ColeWorldNoSnuggie 09/27/11
i’m be watching that video for a whole two weeks i bet ! and i want a dreamville shirt ! and where to get tickles for the shows he just posted !
he didnt promise music he promised something every sunday dumb asses and thats what he gave us. Cole is the fucking man only artist who put up shit on his twitter for free, and is already the sickest rapper ever so fuck all you fake wanna be cole fans. Cole world no blanket baby.
album cover dope. you a hell of a inspiration to me dogg
whether song or no song its still Coleworld, he’s a busy man, you cant rush perfection
AIR JORDAN BRED 6S.. CLASSICS. WONDER WAT ELSE U PACKIN IN THAT CLOSET BROTHA…I AINT MAD THERE ISNT A LIST OF SONGS ON HERE. CANT WAIT TILL THAT ALBUM DROPS. I KNOW U BAD WITH THE TWEETS BUT FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER @angulo45 cole world check the degreeeeees
p.s. wheres the dreamville shirts at??? lol i need a red one
He’s actually wearing the Raptor 7s, and i’m pretty sure by now he’s got all the heat.
J Cole, dont worry about posting new music. The latest songs you released has quenched our thirst. Keep it up fam
Cole with them sultry eyes lol, looks like he’s trying to seduce the ladies haha. Album gonna be dope thou, can’t wait.
cant wait, havent heard a classic since ‘Ye… 9/27 COLEWORLD Dreamers!!!
i do like the cover but i feel like it should’ve kept up the blue kinda effect and put a basketball at his feet or something it just feels a little out of place with the rest of the artwork. with that said i’m dying for the album to come out, been looking forward to it for so long. Can’t wait till you come to london Cole.
Yo u can do bettta dawg. FIND A BETTA COVER. U sittin on da sidline where we can see u and da court where da staters are playin
Diz cover looks plain
For everyone complaining that they stayed up for new music, here’s a suggestion; next time: don’t. There’s another day after Sunday; Monday, which you can wait to preview what Cole has placed online. That applies to anyone in or outside of the US.
But I digress…nice cover. Wish the video clip was longer though. I guess there won’t be a Jay feature, but who cares.
I believe he got the Jay feat. he just tryna keep some element of surprise with all that has leaked he has to keep some stuff to unwrap on the 27th…. wouldn’t be surprised if that female artist is L. Boogie either!
#coleworld oh and I had me some HOT Now’s yesterday!!!
is that krit in the background?
How about everybody shut the fuck up and wait for the album. Cool?
can anybody tell what number he wore
Guys, there are 6 more weeks till the album. If he was releasing a track a week, I would understand. But he’s trying to release 3-4 tracks a week. Call me a dick rider but I’ll appreciate anything he drops on this any given sunday series. At least he’s keeping us in the loop.
Man this video gets me sooooo hyped for 9/27.. and his concert on 9/11 in south florida!…. If u say “fuck jcole” get off his site n go download his mixtapes that kill the game!… he excercises your mind with his lyrics
LOVE YOU COLE but i hate the blasphemy…fuck u for that. Sheytan.
What blasphemy? That he’s sitting on a bench? That you’re too retarded to tell the difference between a cross and the bench?
How could Cole possibly SIT on a cross? So what, one just comfortably places his ass on a cross, hoping that he’ll somehow balance while a photo shoot is going on? Right.
Hop off Cole’s nuts. Cole always raps about God, the last thing he’d do is “blaspheme”.
Easy boy…no need to get upset… it was just my opinion
To be perfectly honest, I thought it’d be a side shot of him sitting on a bench within an outdoors basketball park, with the basketball near him. It’d represent so much more than this.
Outdoors = life
The setting could be Fayetteville; would also imply that his raps are about what he sees.
Basketball = someone dropped it,
Cole’s about to pick it up and get in the game.
Side shot looking into the distance = dreams big
It should be photographed just before sunset. That would’ve been dope. At it is, though, it’s alright. Album’s still gonna be a classic.
so i just wanted to know if anyone else noticed the cross and whether or not it really was sposed to be a cross or what. I mean obvi its the bench and plates but it still sticks out a lil too much for me to think that its just there… esp knowing how cole is and knowing hes christian and all that… id like to think its a cross and its symbolizes something good about him tho!
Come on people. Asking ‘is this it?’
Who do you think you are? It’s his Any Given Sunday, he can put out whatever he likes. He doesn’t have to do any of this. We’ve already gotten a ton of quality songs. Not to mention, artwork and a song preview is in itself a quality update. You’re not entilited to anything, so enjoy what you get, cause it’s all a pleasant perk, Cole didn’t sign a contract to put out 5 songs every sunday until 9/27.
Fiends aint get they fix on this one lol. You guys bitchin will be the ones downloading and not buying the album anyways.
Give cats an inch and they wanna take a mile.
As Mikey mention the cross underneath the bench really does stand out.the light behind reflects much upon the cross.. I seen that too the first time.In my opinion it is genius how the cover looks,good representation for J.Cole and the album.The song preview video is incredible! Lyrics and beat to the rhythm are dope.
Looks like Cole has the ingrediants for a mimosa and a classic in that preview.
J. cole is on the bench hopefully by time then he can make it. let the story begin. 9/27
I like the cover bit thought the cover someone posted earlier was better. This video gave me chills I want to listen to the whole song lol. To the people that said “Fuck Cole” ur STUPID but I have to agree that I’m dissapointed, last week in the stream he said he was gonna drop a song during week and that didn’t happened so I figured is gonna be on this #Anygivensunday. If people are mad and dissapoited that shows how much Love people have for J.Cole. Can’t wait for 9/27 and to see him on 9/11 #ColeWorld
yous do remember what jcole said on any given sunday #1…he will drop 1 song, or a video or anything depending on how he feels!
My mind runs a mile a minute. The sky’s the limit, but I’m so high, that i’m diving in it. My ride is tinted. My knob’s gettin slobbed up in it. She’s yelling, “godd,’ man you woulda thought that God’s up in it. But it’s just a nigga God invented..
Cole is a genius. & stop complaining, please.
COLE WORLD:SIDELINE STORY!
Stop fucking bitching… So what if you didn’t get new Cole music this week… Shit he said it was gonna be something different every week when he started this shit a couple weeks ago… He said “a few songs here… Maybe a video”… Like damn. Thirsty ass niggas… When he do something good y’all like COLE WORLD… when he don’t do what yall want him to then y’all like fuck that NIGGA…. Go eat a dick til 9.27… COLE WORLD BITCH!!
I seriously can’t stop playing this snippet, I’m super hype for the album and the art work fits perfectly with the album theme. You about to be off that bench nigga.
Cole said he was gonna do “something” for the fans every Sunday till the album drop. Not necessarily songs every week. But i was lookin forward to some music like everyone else
I wanna lay in bed with J.Cole. I’m in love with him. Project Sohh is were I stan for you at. Come check me out guys. Cole World 9/27. My Blanket is in bed too. Ohhhhhhhhh Weeee.
Stop bitching he clearly said he’s either going to drop songs or some videos so why y’all getting mad for something y’all were told ahead of time…fucking idiots…oh and #ColeWorld 9/27
no music till tours over
i dont even get why people are mad. any given sunday aint supposed to be that important. whut is important is COLE WORLD!!!!
Yo dis is gone be the illmatic for the 21st century……got damn classic!!!
Album- 15 tracks and 1 skit. I wish In the Morning wasn’t on the album, but I understand why. It will get alot of radio play since drake is on it. Oh well..At least Lost Ones and Cheer Up will make the album. Plus the full version of the snippet from AGS #4. Those three songs alone are worth buying the album.
The Album cover looks like Jesus in hell, notice the cross that he’s sitting on. Cole World-Dreamville-Concrete Dreamers.
Was just at the Vancouver show!! It was willdddd & epic!! To everybody else that bought a ticket to your respective city’s tour date, be prepared for a sick and amazing show. The energy was just insane!
J Cole, cant wait for the album man i got it in my calender and everything.
Yo I been rockin wit dis man eva since I seen his victory freestyle when he was called therapist, J.Cole is a true music genius.
He’s definitely not sitting on a cross. It’s just a bench
i want that song on that video !
Cole World make way for the chosen one 9/27/11
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put more london dates on your tour i missed them and i HAVE TO BE THERE!! pleaseee j. cole if you love your london fans you’ll do this. i know so many people who missed out and want to go. tbh the sideline story will probably be the first album i’ll ever pay for lol cause i want you to get big!! as big as kanye that is <3<3
I gotta have a album and when do you come to chicago im in the house of blues if you do
guarantee this song is the one called rise and shine, kinda wish k.dot had a verse
anyone know when dreamville shirts are coming out? i wanna buy!
damn mothafuckas goin crazy off this shit…. COLE WORLD
