J. Cole has released his new album The Off-Season.
The record includes last week’s “i n t e r l u d e” and boasts production from Timbaland, Boi-1da, frequent collaborator T-Minus, J. Cole, and more. It also features cameos from 21 Savage, Lil Baby, and Cam’ron. Listen to J. Cole’s The Off-Season below.
All five of J. Cole’s studio LPs have been certified platinum by the RIAA. The last three—2014 Forest Hills Drive, 4 Your Eyez Only, and KOD—have famously gone “platinum with no features.” In a 2019 feature with Allison P. Davis for GQ, Cole commented on the meme-phrase: “I was loving it,” he said. “I was like, ‘Word up—this is funny as hell.’ But the second or third time, I was like, ‘All right, it's almost embarrassing now.’ Like, ‘All right, man, y'’ll gonna make me put a feature on the album just so this shit can stop.’”
In the time since KOD, J. Cole has also delivered his own spate of guest verses. To name a few, Cole has featured on Gang Starr’s “Family and Loyalty,” Ty Dolla $ign’s “Purple Emoji,” Young Thug’s “The London,” and 21 Savage’s “a lot,” which earned the rappers the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Rap Song.
