J. Cole previews new song ‘Chaining Day’ [Video]

As he points out himself, J.Cole has been quiet as of late. Aside from a few freebies here and there, his last proper new material came in September 2011 with the release of his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story. But after debuting a new verse at Wireless Festival in London earlier this month, the Roc Nation rapper took to the stage again at a recent gig to preview yet more fresh material.

As he explains beforehand, this new track is entitled “Chaining Day”, and is about “where I’m at now and being a smart, young man who’s supposed to know better and I told myself I would never become that guy… and then this happened,” he said, lifting up his chain. You can watch Cole give an acapella performance of the new cut below.

Stay tuned for more details on his future material.
