J. Cole isn't afraid of competing with Kanye West. The Roc Nation rapper caused a stir when he announced that he was moving up the release date of his sophomore album, Born Sinner, to June 18th--the same day that West will be releasing Yeezus.

"I'm not going to sit [here]... I worked too hard to come a week later after Kanye West drops an amazing album. It'd be like, 'Oh and J.Cole dropped too, a week later.' Nah," Cole told Billboard. "I'm going to go see him on that date. He's the greatest. So it's like, I'm a competitor by nature so it was instant, it wasn't even a thought."

"It's a definite statement about how I feel about my album, which is confidentâ¦At the same time, let's not forget this is Kanye West,â said Cole. âHe bets 100, 1,000, whatever the perfect is. His track record is flawless. I'm only expecting an incredible album from him.â
