North Carolina’s own J. Cole just went on UStream to announce the name and release date of his highly anticipated followup to 2011’s Cole World. And it’s called….

Born Sinner – scheduled to hit your iTunes and music stores on January 28, 2013.

Since 2011, J. Cole has sold more than half a million records, earned a Grammy nod, and has even teased a dual album with Kendrick Lamar. After the success of good kid, m.A.A.d city, the rap world seems primed for another huge release by a talented young gun. But Cole had better beware the dreaded sophomore slump – with label president Jay-Z behind him, he’s certainly got the backing to create something special.

Will it be a smash like his last album?
