The only reason I chose to share FNL is because it grabs good ones from a few different mixtapes such as those. All of his mixtapes are dope, I cant wait to see him again. His Charleston show was awesome
I've listened to The Come Up and The Warm Up and my reaction was - meh. I thought Grown Simba and Lights Please were alright, but I doubt I'll see his set. I'll have to check out Friday Night Lights and see if that changes my opinion
I have extra love for J. Cole, being that he comes out of NC. He is very hard working. Most people probably don't know he handles most of his production work himself. He is a good beat maker in addition to his mic skills.
I believe his debut album is currently slated more release in March, but I don't think that'll hold. He has been trying to release the album for what seems like forever, hopefully it will see the light of day sooner than later. But in the meantime I'll keep listening to his awesome mixtapes.

Album Before The Album is good, but it's all old/previously released stuff...it's been floating around for a while, just compiled with a new cover. Still solid, but not on the level of the first three, real, mixtapes.
