J. Cole chopped it up with MTV recently to dish out some details on his upcoming "Born Sinner" album which should be released on June 25th. He spoke on the religious themes that have been tied into his new work.
"It's not necessarily a church theme and it's not really about church. I like my album themes to be metaphors because it gives me the freedom to speak about something else that's going on in my life, so the Born Sinner thing is not about church, it's not even about religion. It's using that as canvas to get other messages across and that's what the album will be."
