J. Cole Is Dropping a New Album This Week


Earlier this week, a new snippet of J. Cole music appeared in an ESPN NBA commercial.

Cole surprised fans on Monday in NY when he said that his new album will be released on Friday, April 20.

"No Phones. No Cameras". No bags. No press list.

Cole also announced he'd be hosting a free, first-come, first-served pop-up concert in NY on Instagram, and it was there that the chosen ones (read: the people who got there first) were treated to a listening session for his upcoming album.

Man to be charged for threatening former police officer
The Gainesville Police Department said they were called to the 400 block of Atlanta Highway on Friday night by a taxi driver. Muntean pleaded guilty to fleeing police and was sentenced to 16 months in prison.

It's tough to tell if Smokepurpp is just trolling fans here, considering Cole never puts features on his albums, or if he's telling the truth, but you can check it out for yourself (below). Cole says the album was recorded in about two weeks.

The new album KOD drops on Friday (April 20). On Monday April 16, the rapper asked his Twitter followers to come to the Gramercy Theatre at 6 p.m. that evening.

In a follow-up post, he uploaded a picture of a gold pendant with the image of a scorpion in reference to the album title, which is the astrological sign for when he was born on October 24.

So it looks like rap lovers around the world have an exciting two months ahead.
