J.Cole’s Born Sinner will finally see the light on June 25th. And in a recent interview with MTV, he explains why he abandoned the basketball themes of his previous project and the concept behind his new album.
“It’s not necessarily a church theme and it’s not really about church,” he explained. “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.”
