During an interview with radio station Hot 106, Cole revealed that he’s currently working on his sophomore album and plans to release it as early as June.
Cole, who’s still busy promoting his debut album, stated that there were a lot of tracks that didn’t make the first album that he’d like to select for the project that were way to good for the mixtape circuit. After debuting number one on the Billboard 200 in September, Cole admitted that a lot of the tracks on Cole World were recorded prior to signing with Roc Nation.
Back in September, Cole admitted to billboard that he was already ‘tracking’ his next album.
“I’m trying to do nine months, be back in nine months with the next album,” Cole tells Billboard.com. 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.”
And by taking it to the next level, the North Carolina rapper hit the streets in style by building a studio on his bus while he promotes his debut.
“It depends on my zone. There are days I can’t write much, and I’ve got days where I can go on and on. When I’m at my best, yeah, it flows out; when I’m at my worst, it’s gonna take awhile. That’s just how it goes.”
