If there have been two things I have been waiting for this fall, its J. Cole’s forthcoming debut album and the release of good sports games for my Xbox 360. So with J. Cole’s recent release, The Plan, here in final form after a snippet surfaced earlier this week, serving as the title track to the NBA Elite 2011 Soundtrack, I get the best of both worlds. Produced by fellow North Carolinian 9th Wonder, Cole sets his mark on the EA Sports lineup like Killer Mike and Slim Thugg have done in the past. Beginning with the production, we’re speaking about the legendary 9th Wonder here, so I would have been shocked if the beat was disappointing. With a rock-influenced backdrop to work off, the future of Roc Nation Cole delivers yet more dopeness, throwing down punchlines like “Send flowers for opponents, tell em get well soon/ cause I aint in the mood / so if you read that word backwards it should spell doom.” Damn. NBA Elite 11, complete with a full soundtrack crafted entirely by 9th, will be available everywhere October 5.
