J. Cole continues to pop up in the news, and the buzz is starting to gain some steam for his sophomore effort Born Sinner.  Continuing with his promotion, Cole struck a Hamlet-like post on the cover of RESPECT magazine. 

Although he has hinted that his album may be delayed, and he called his January 28threlease date “ambitious”, the NC native has been releasing music and seems even if the album is delayed it will not be for too long as he simply wants to utilize as much promotion as possible. 

The issue of RESPECT hits newsstands on November 27th, and the brooding image is indicative of a more introspective Cole on his new album.
