J. Cole took some time off to rest, but after three years he is back with his sixth studio album, “The Off-Season”. Upon it’s arrival, Cole tweeted “Took years to reach this form”.
The album features collaborations with Cam’ron, 21 Savage, Lil Baby, 6lack, Bas, Morray and production from Timbaland, Boi-1da, T-Minus, & more. Following the basketball theme from earlier projects like The Come Up, The Warm Up, and Cole World: The Sideline Story, the cover art of The Off-Season depicts a flaming basketball hoop looming behind him. J. Cole has also signed to the Basketball Africa League team, the Rwanda Patriots, according to recent reports.

J. Cole also stopped by The LA Leakers for a fiery freestyle to hype up his new album, which finds him rhyming over Souls of Mischief’s “93 Til Infinity” and Mike Jones classic “Still Tippin.” Cole spits over the silky ’90s instrumental about his grimy come-up, embracing his newfound life of fame and the pressures that came along with it. Also on the midnight of the release, Spotify momentarily crashed. Presumably due to the number of people trying to access the Dreamville boss’ latest effort.
