It’s about that time. J. Cole has been a heavy topic of conversation ever since he shared the release date for The Off-Season, and following his ‘Interlude’ single and his fire freestyle on L.A. Leakers, fans have been waiting on his latest record to hit streaming services. The 12-track project unsurprisingly hosts Lil Baby feature, and the usually quiet Cole shared with SLAM magazine the inspiration and theme of his anticipated project.
“The Off-Season symbolizes the work that it takes to get to the highest height. The Off-Season represents the many hours and months and years it took to get to top form,” words by J. Cole
Producers on The Off-Season include Timbaland, Boi-1da, T-Minus, Tommy Parker, Jake One, DJ Dahi, and many more. J. Cole has also spoken about making peace with retiring and it has been reported that he’s set to play basketball for the Rwanda Patriots in the Africa League.
