Instead of dropping a pre-album mixtape, J.Cole will try something different, as he debuts his new weekly series Any Given Sunday with a 5-track drop.

Be on the look-out each week as Cole will be putting out something every Sunday until the release of his debut album on Sept 27th.

Check Cole’s explanation of each one of the tracks from his Any Given Sunday mini mixtape below.

1. “Like A Star”Was saving this for the 2nd album. Due to some other shit beyond my control, I’ma let this out now.

2. “Knock On Wood”One of my fav. freestyles. OG Dreamvillains gotta be reminded, new fans gotta get put on.

3. “Pity”Brand new J. Cole, Omen, Voli. Produced by Voli @volitheentity

4. “How High”at one point this was guaranteed to go on The Sideline Story.

5. “Unabomber”Just heard this today for the first time in a longgg time. Love these raps.
