J. Cole Moves Up 'Born Sinner' Album Date, Releases Cover Art



J. Cole
 ended all speculation about pushing up the June 25 release date to June 18 for his sophomore LP, Born Sinner, Monday (May 20) morning via Twitter and Instagram. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jay-Z’s protégé moved up the release of his second studio album and will be coming out on the same day as Kanye West, who also will be releasing his new set, Yeezus, on June 18.

“Kanye West is one of the greatest artists of our generation,” Cole tweeted. “Which is exactly why I'm moving my release date up. Born Sinner June 18th.”

"J. has been working nonstop to put out his album a week earlier --living in the studio, bringing in full orchestras and a choir," an unnamed source told THR.

Along with the new release date, the Roc Nation spitter released the album’s official artwork, which is an artistic rendering of a devil-horned child draped in a shiny black coating. Hovering above the young “sinner” is a golden crown, likely meant to symbolize that Cole, whose debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, was certified double-platinum in 2012 by the RIAA, is coming for that hip-hop crown.

It’s said that heavy is the head that wears the crown, but with the creative genius of his first single, “Power Trip,” featuring Miguel, already circulating to widespread critical acclaim, it won’t be long before this competitive spitter makes good on his promise to make this season a “Cole Summer.”

IRS Goes After Mary J. Blige for $3.4 Million



The Internal Revenue Service wants to know “What's the 411?” on 
Mary J. Blige not paying her taxes. According to TMZ, the R&B Queen owes $3,426,255.43 to Uncle Sam for unpaid income taxes for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011.

Records show that the IRS officially filed a federal tax lien in February in Bergen County Court against the My Life singer, adding to her already substantial financial woes, which include $901,769.65 in back taxes owed to the state of New Jersey and lawsuits: one against her charity, The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now, for failing to pay back a $250,000 loan and another by Signature Bank for defaulting on a $2.2 million loan.

If that weren’t enough, the nine-time Grammy Award winner was also sued in New York state supreme court by Bank of America, who allege that the Bronx-born chanteuse took out a $500,000 loan and only paid a portion of it back. The bank is seeking $514,000, which is the total amount of the unpaid principal of the loan plus interest.
