J. Cole to Drop New Album This Week

April 17, 2018

J. Cole revealed on Twitter Monday evening that he will release a new album this Friday. “New album. KOD. 4/20,” the rapper tweeted. Pitchfork reports that Cole's album news came just hours after he announced a surprise show in New York City that evening where phones and cameras were prohibited. Miss Info notes that the event likely served as a listening party for his new material. Cole’s last album was 2016’s 4 Your Eyes Only, which was accompanied by an HBO documentary. The rapper also premiered a new snippet of music in an ESPN NBA commercial over the weekend.
