J. Cole Gets a Release Date

After spending a while building up mixtape buzz and general goodwill, ascendant rapper, producer, and (as we are now contractually obligated to mention) Jay-Z protégé J. Cole has landed a release date for his official debut album: Cole World: The Sideline Story will be out September 27. J. Cole fans had been getting ornery about the wait for the debut, so you can relax now, J. Cole fans. More important: Will J. Cole have a huge Jay-Z-featuring single and be really famous very soon? Maybe! [J.Cole/Twitter via Billboard]
