J. Cole x Yaya Martinez Interview Part 1 “I’m grateful to even have an album coming out” [Video]

Having kicked off his Cole World Tour on August 23rd, J.Cole rolled into the Southwestern US city of Phoenix, Arizona, for the seventeenth leg of his sixty five date world tour. During the stop the Roc Nation artist, who’s highly anticipated debut album was unfortunately leaked to the Interwebs a few days ago, stopped by the Power 98.3 FM studios for a chat with radio personality Yaya Martinez. During the interview, Jermaine spoke on how he feels he has progressed as an artist since 2009, what he does in his spare time traveling from stop to stop on his tour bus and his album release.

With Cole World: The Sideline Story set to drop next week, Cole touched on how he feels about the LP finally seeing the light of day stating, “I feel good, I’m excited. I’m relieved that the album is finally coming out, it’s actually pressed up, it’ll be in stores. It’s been such a long process. Grateful… “Grateful” is the word. I’m grateful to even have an album coming out in the stores…”

Cole World: The Sideline Story will be released on September 26th (27th US). Read our review here.
