‘The Off-Season’ has been spoken about by Cole since 2018, despite his next record originally being speculated to be called ‘The Fall Off’.
The rapper began teasing ‘The Off-Season’ in August 2018 when the YouTube caption for ‘Album Of The Year (Freestyle)’ read: “The Off Season coming soon… All roads lead to The Fall Off.”
Last December, he also posted a notebook with plans for “The Fall Off Era”, which laid out a path from ‘The Off-Season’, a project titled ‘It’s A Boy’ through to ‘The Fall Off’.
Upon finally announcing the finished collection last week, J. Cole told fans: “Just know this was years in the making.” He also shared the album’s official cover art.
Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this week that Cole is set to play for African basketball team the Rwanda Patriots. According to ESPN, the artist is currently completing a two-week quarantine in Rwanda in order to compete in the Basketball Africa League.
Last month, Noname spoke out about her fallout with J. Cole last year after being asked about it by a fan on Twitter.
