The world was supposed to end today, but in case you woke up today, J. Cole dropped this new record called “2012.”

In a reflective mood, Cole waxed poetic on why he hopes the world isn’t ending today and sheds light on this track. “If the world ends tomorrow, damn. I would be mad as s**t for 2 reasons. First, I’m not with my family. That would suck. What would also be wack is if I never got to drop this song,” began Cole.

“Summer of 08′. Mark Pitts meeting had happened a month ago. He said he f**ks with me, but he not talking about signing me. Ok. F**k that. I’ma make my new s**t so stupid that the next time he meet with me he gonna HAVE to sign me. Same summer I made “Grown Simba” and started The Warm Up with a “f**k it” mentality. A few special songs I made that summer haven’t dropped yet. This is one of them.”

‘”2012’ Some of the most fun I ever had making a record,” says the Roc Nation rapper.  “Alone in my room, making the beat, writing the raps, Jammin to this.Here we are, Years Later, and right on time. Enjoy”

Well, you heard the man. Check out “2012” after the jump.
