Listen to J. Cole aka kiLL edward's New Song 'Tidal Wave'

Saturday, 21 Apr, 2018

At a surprise pop-up show and album listening he held in NY a few days ago, he said that KOD stands for King Overdosed, Kill Our Demons and Kids on Drugs, and that the album was basically divinely inspired. The North Carolina rapper promptly announced the tittle, KOD, and shared a full tracklisting and cover art. Whether he was unabashedly tackling the drug epidemic sprouting up in the hip-hop community or the broken tax system paralyzing USA citizens, Cole refused to remain mum on these weighty issues on album number five.

While J. Cole didn't confirmed the track as a Lil Pump diss, the lyrics pretty much point us towards that direction.

J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar are rumoured to be collaborating on a secret album.

Aside from this, Cole has been tightlipped about the album. The same sort of marketing techniques were used during the release of his third album 2014 Forest Hills Drive.

This is J. Cole's first full-length release since 2016's 4 Your Eyez Only, a concept album about a friend who died. It's the kind of thing that could come off a little preachy but it doesn't here, largely because Cole is always quick to implicate himself.

Rumors began to surface with the mysterious post by Top Dawg Entertainment CEO, Punch, with the caption, "4Bidden".

When does J Cole's new album drop? However, the message for the hip-hop community is coming through loud and clear.

Along with Cole World, this year's line-up includes Trippie Redd, Cardi B, Migos, Bun B, Trae tha Truth and Kevin Gates.Tickets are available now and you can purchase them here.
