J. Cole teased fans with rumors about his 'Born Sinner' album, and now it looks like 'Cole World' fans will get the sophomore album earlier than expected!

Cole announced that 'Born Sinner' would be released June 18th rather than June 25th.

There was no initial reason given for the bump, but some are speculating that it has something to do with Kanye West announcing that 'Yeezus' would be dropping on the same day.  Cole confirmed those suspicions with this tweet after his announcement.

Cole also revealed two new album art covers for 'Born Sinner.'  One cover (the deluxe edition) shows a baby devil with a crown over its head and the other cover (the standard) features a cloudy dark path into gates of heaven, covered with gold lines.
