American rapper, Jermain Lamarr Cole, popularly known as J Cole has taken to Twitter to announce the release date for his upcoming studio album, ‘The Off-Season.’ The last time the rapper dropped a solo album was in 2018, with KOD. However, sequel to that was the Dreamville compilation album, ‘Revengers of the dreamers III’ in 2019.
‘The Off-Season’ will arrive on May 14 and took years to make, as revealed by the Tweet. Find the rappers announcement below.
J. Cole’s KOD follow-up was mooted to be The Fall Off because the last song on KOD was subtitled “Intro to ‘The Fall-Off’.” In addition, his 2020 singles “The Climb Back” and “Lion King on Ice” were billed as the first two songs from The Fall Off. A recent teaser from Cole, however, did indicate that The Off-Season could precede The Fall Off.
Last year, prior to releasing “The Climb Back” and “Lion King on Ice,” Cole shared “Snow on tha Bluff,” which was perceived as a diss track against Noname. He later walked back his criticisms of Noname. In response, Noname released a J. Cole diss called “Song 33,” and she later wrote, “I am not proud of myself for responding.”
A J Cole album that took years to make would be- surely can’t describe it for now. See you on the 14th.
