If this song sounds familiar to you, take a listen to the closing track on Colin Munroe's mixtape Unsung Hero and you'll realize why. Recorded in 2010 as a potential track for Drake's debut album Thank Me Later, the previously unreleased collaboration surfaced over the weekend, which also features a verse from the beautiful Dawn Richard. I think this should've made the cut. Do you?

J. Cole gave us a first listen of "I'm A Fool" at Rock The Bells, and he utilized a creative release strategy by allowing a fan to premiere the track on Twitter.
