J. Cole is on the cusp of releasing one of the most hotly anticipated albums of the year – and only announced the set two days ago.
The Hip-Hop titan will unleash LP ‘KOD’ this Friday (April 20th).
Never one to follow the rules, the rapper ditched the traditional roll-out and following the LP’s shock announcement staged surprise back-to-back gigs in New York and London to play the project in full live.
Recording devices were prohibited, as such much about the album remains a mystery.
It is, however, known that Cole confirmed that he recorded the set in two weeks; he stressed that that its recording was seamless – as if God was writing his bars.
As for what ‘KOD’ means, there are apparently three simultaneous translations – ‘Kidz On Drugz,’ ‘King Overdose,’ ‘Kill Our Demonz.’
Prior to its arrival, Cole has revealed its cover (above) and tracklist. Check out the later below…
