From J. Cole:

June 15th, 2009. A year ago today The Warm Up dropped. I’m taking this moment and appreciating all the love and support that I’ve received from yall. All that love ya’ll gave allowed me to hit the road and perform these songs for you before I even had a single out. It’s wild to me when I show up in places like Houston, Atlanta, Richmond, Ohio, University of Maryland, NYC, so many other cities and schools, and the whole crowd knows every word to every song. Seeing that it’s so early in my career, only 1 single out, that’s a blessing. Thank you.

A year later and people are still getting put on to The Warm Up every day. Slowly but surely ya’ll, just like it was supposed to. The album is coming, your patience is gonna pay off.

Thank you for real.

Ya’ll know I don’t like throwing out too much but fuck it, it’s a special day. A leaked freestyle never hurt nobody.

J. Cole comes through and SMASHES that “Angels” beat.

DOWNLOAD: J. Cole – The Last Stretch

My way like a Ursher song, higher power where these verses from, you niggas hoes, put your purses on, church, get your worship on, born alone, work alone, die alone, hot fire like Dylan, bitches get they dial on, fake niggas get dial tones, I ain’t no Viacom nigga, I’m a firearm nigga, look how I alarm niggas”

“Niggas couldn’t fill my shoes, couldn’t even try em on”

BONUS: Miguel Feat. J. Cole – All I Want Is You…

Pure heatrock. Pure…For those who don’t know, Miguel does his thing.
