J. Cole is speaking on his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story and revealing how he came up with the project’s name.
He tells Rap-Up while on tour,
“When I came up with an album title that I actually liked, it waswas The Sideline Story. But it felt incomplete. I felt like, ‘Oh man, let’s make it a series and make Cole World the Star Wars [with sub-titles].’ Cole World is something that my fans recognize and they love and I love it too.”
The Roc Nation emcee also added that he has a “fun” song with Trey Songz and is waiting on a final verse from Jay-Z for an additional track that he produced.
“Yeah I’m still waiting on that verse but yeah, I got that song for Jay.”
