Roc Nation rapper J. Cole is hoping to hold fans over as they patiently wait for his upcoming Born Sinner solo album by announcing plans to drop a Truly Yours 2 project today (April 30).

The Jay-Z protégé announced the unexpected project’s Tuesday release last night (April 29).

“F*ck it. Truly Yours 2 tomorrow. You Deserve it.,” Cole tweeted late Monday night. (J. Cole’s Twitter)

The new mystery project is a follow-up to its predecessor, which dropped in February.

J. Cole on his Twitter account just announced Truly Yours 2-the official sequel to his Born Sinner holdover 5-track free EP which dropped in February. Shortly after releasing the newly recorded track “Cole Summer,” he announced a brand new EP for the fans. Cole says Truly Yours 2 will drop within the next 24 hours. Why is Cole being so kind to his fans at such a late hour? Because they deserve it. (Rap Dose)

Shortly before the news, the rapper released his personal “Cole Summer” anthem which touches on a variety of topics including being a penny-pincher and having issues with Roc Nation boss Jay-Z’s demands.

As he nears completion on his sophomore album, J. Cole takes a break from recording to remind us that he’s coming with heat this summer. On the soulful “Cole Summer,” the self-proclaimed “cheap ass ni**a” raps about throwing thousands in the strip club with Drake (“The difference is I’m throwing 4, he throwing 50″), Jay-Z’s orders to record with Stargate (“That shit was like detention now”), and dreams of Tia and Tamera Mowry. The cover is a reference to his mother, who used to work at the post office. “I told her quit her job, but hold your horses/ If my next album flop, it’s back to the post office, both of us,” he raps over a sample of Lauryn Hill’s “Nothing Even Matters.” (Rap-Up)

If all goes accordingly, fans will have their hands on Cole’s upcoming Born Sinner around late June.

Taking to his Twitter, Cole wrote “said i would never announce on twitter, but damn, since i f*cked up that first one (but what a moment!) …… Born Sinner June 25th. – Cole.” Since delaying the album, Cole had previously pleased plans with the Truly Yours EP. Now, he’s got two and a half months to make sure Born Sinner isn’t delayed again. (Exclaim)
