J. Cole Releasing New Album The Off-Season Next Week
J. Cole has announced that his next studio album will arrive next week: The Off-Season is out May 14. The record serves as the North Carolina rapper’s follow-up to 2018’s KOD, as well as his 2019 Dreamville compilation Revenge of The Dreamers III. Find J. Cole’s 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 J Cole Off-Season album download 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.”
