Last week, Dreamville rapper Bas set the rap talk on fire when he posted on Instagram about J. Cole potentially returning in 2 weeks with album The Off Season.
Bas later deleted the post but not before most of us caught it and started to count days before the superstar officially ends his hiatus. Apart from the release of his sneakers with Puma, Cole had a quiet 2020, releasing just a handful of songs in ‘Snow On Tha Bluff‘, ‘Lion King On Ice’ and ‘The Climb Back’.
Then, at the end of the year, he made the surprise hint at three projects in the works; The Off-Season, It’s A Boy and The Fall Off. Today, he took to social media to drop the bombshell: he’s releasing his new album The Off-Season on May 14th.
He also unveiled the official artwork for it. Peep it below. “Just know this was years in the making,” said Cole.
