J. Cole – Truly Yours : 5 Song EP [Free Download]

Posted in Chill by nick | Tags: , , , ,

It has been awhile since we heard anything new from J. Cole, and to tide over his fans he just let loose a 5 track free release. Truly Yours EP features some great songs that didn’t make the cut for his upcoming album which he says is his best work yet. Despite not being on the album, they are still just as great, and way better then most the free tracks artists rappers put out. As he says “Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul”. His wordplay and lyricism is incredible as expected. If these are the songs that didn’t make the cut, I can’t wait to here the album, which Cole said we will get to here the first single from later this week! Enjoy.
