Jermaine recently announced that he was not going to release a mixtape prior to his Roc Nation debut. He said he instead would go the weekly route, dropping tracks that did not make the cut prior to the album’s release. I don’t know if dropping  a 5-track EP was always in his plans or if the pre-album schedule was changed. I’m not complaining either way. He did say this though:

“Every Sunday til the album drops I’ll be back with something. Maybe just 1 song, maybe a video, depending on how I’m feeling.”

J. Cole must have been feeling awesome today. He even included a little information on each track. Make the jump for the track listing and the download.
