J. Cole got the shock of his young career during a recent concert in Scottsdale, Arizona.
The rapper was thanking fans for coming out his show Wednesday (September 21) when one of them handed him a retail copy of his album Cole World: The Sideline Story. The only problem is, the album doesn’t get officially released until September 27.
“I don’t know how the f*ck they got this sh*t, but this sh*t is real my n*gga,” he said. “This sh*t is incredible for me to see right now. This a n*gga album. I don’t even have this, n*gga. I don’t know how you got this.”
There were reports that some Target stores had put the album on shelves prematurely, but that hasn’t been substantiated.
