There’s no down time for North Carolina native J. Cole. Having just dropped his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story which peeked at #1 on Billboards Top 200, the RocNation signee is already back on his studio grind working on his sophomore project.

“I’m trying to do nine months, be back in nine months with the next album,” Cole told Billboard.com, adding that he’s “already tracking the second album. I’ve got the foundation of songs that I’m gonna put on it already, so it’s just a matter of taking these songs to the next level.”

“I don’t know how many, but I got songs that didn’t make the last album that are automatically going to make this one,” he said, revealing the release date. “June. End of June, maybe June.”

J. Cole was the first artist to sign with Jay-Z and his RocNation label back in 2009.

He also confirms that the next single off of his current album will be “Nobody’s Perfect” featuring Missy Elliott.
