J.Cole Is Dropping A New Album This Friday!

Good news for fans of J. Cole as they are in for a treat on Friday with the release of the rapper’s latest album, KOD. On Monday, J. Cole announced a surprise concert at the New York Gramercy Theatre based on a “first come, first served” basis. The flyer for the show also warned that no cameras, bags, or phones would be allowed. Following the announcement, he changed his profile pic, background and Instagram avatar leading fans to suspect that he was about to drop a new project. J. Cole did not disappoint as sent out a tweet to that effect earlier this morning.

According to Complex, KOD has three subtitles; “Kidz on Drugz“, “King Overdose” & “Kill Our Demonz“.

The tactic is not new to Cole: He stealth-dropped his third album “2014 Forest Hills Drive,” and announced the release of his fourth album, 2016’s “4 Your Eyes Only,” with just an iTunes pre-order page. “Forest Hills” garnered the rapper three of his five total Grammy nominations, with nods for Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance (for “Apparently”) and Best R&B Performance (for “Planez”).
