J.Cole's Friday Nights Lights Mixtape To Debut Nov. 12

By D.L. Chandler

J.Cole announced the title and release date for his third official mixtape, Friday Night Lights, today (November 2). The project will hit arrive before the debut of his first major label album, which is still untitled.

The North Carolina wordsmith leaked a teaser from the upcoming project on Tuesday (November 2) titled “Before I’m Gone," which finds the MC spitting with his trademark ferocity. “Can’t you tell I’m going through hell, I don’t even open my mail/I’m in a shower with soap and a towel/I need cleansing … ,” Cole spits, with a cool confidence.

In a recent interview with Shade 45 on-air personality Angela Yee, J.Cole spoke about his upcoming mixtape, being on the same Roc Nation label as kid sensation Willow Smith and seemingly voicing some frustrations about the release of his debut.

“I’m calling it a mixtape for the sake of calling it a mixtape, but it’s really an album in a sense,” Cole explained.

And after mentioning Willow's famous father, Will Smith, on a few songs, it looks like J.Cole may meet the talented family soon.

"That’s just 'cause I got a high respect for him and even his family, right now, they got a perfect life," the Southerner said of the acknowledgment. "So I can’t wait to meet little Willow."

Willow Smith recently performed on the daytime TV talk show "Ellen" and she has impressed the folks here at RapFix—again. Doesn't it just makes you wonder what were you doing at that age?

J.Cole's mixtape Friday Night Lights will be released November 12 via the site dreamvillain.net.
