October 26 will be a big moment. That’s the day J. Cole comes full circle with his debut album, (insert-whatever-name-you-think-it-is-because-he-hasn’t-released-that-yet). Until then, it’s long nights and even shorter days as he literally runs around the world promoting its release. While traveling across the pond with Jay-Z for the Wireless Festival, the pride and joy of Fayetteville (who was actually born in Germany) caught up with the OG, Semtex. After the more formal in studio interview (and freestyle) the night before, Sem took Cole on a tour throughout the streets of London which including food and shoe shopping.

They also speak about the quality of the The Warm Up and how it compared to albums. The most intriguing part of the interview actually came from Semtex himself, however. He referred to Cole’s upcoming project as a mix of Illmatic and College Dropout. We’ll all make our own assumptions once we hear the project, but talk about expectations.

After the jump, view footage of Cole speaking certain tracks off his new album.
