J. Cole The Off-Season

Last week, J. Cole took to social to announce his sixth studio album, The Off-Season.

Accompanied by a new track titled, “i n t e r l u d e,” J. Cole officially kicked off his album campaign in full gear, as he’s been seen everywhere this week. On Tuesday (May 11), J. Cole graced the cover of the June/July issue of Slam Magazine, being the first rapper to do so. Inside the official cover story, Cole addressed the retirement conversations stating he won’t confirm when he will actually retire, but he certainly laying down the foundation.

“Oh, bro, I’m super comfortable with the potential of being done with this shit. But I’m never going to say, Oh, this is my last album,” Cole tells SLAM. “Because I never know how I’m going to feel two years, three years, four years down the line, 10 years down the line, but please believe, I’m doing all this work for a reason.”

Prior to the magazine’s cover release, news surfaced that Cole is reportedly joining the Rwanda Patriots BBC in the inaugural season of the Basketball Africa League.

As things come full circle, Cole returns with The Off-Season. Giving us a behind-the-scenes look with his latest documentary, “Applying Pressure: The Off-Season Documentary,” J. Cole returns with 12 tracks, with production handled by Timbaland, boi-1da, Frank Dukes, T-Minus, and several others.

Drake Releases Long-Awaited Album ‘Certified Lover Boy’

Seven months ago, Drake announced the delayment of Certified Lover Boy, due to wanting to take his time to recover from knee surgery stating “I’m just grateful to be back on my feet. I went through a little bit of a tough stretch with an injury and I’m back in tip-top form.”

“CLB is currently being cheffed in every way possible…I’m back in the studio with 40 tough. I’m just really excited about the music that we’re making and I feel like I’ve locked into a zone where I’m really trying to execute on a project that’s fulfilling for my soul.”

However, he didn’t break down the bad news without a treat. A month later, OVO Sound’s head honcho released Scary Hours 2 . Though it didn’t feature the Lil Durk-assisted track, “Laugh Now, Cry Later,” the project boasted features from Lil Baby (“Wants and Needs”) and Rick Ross (“Lemon Pepper Freestyle”). Drake also provided visual treatment to the opening track, “What’s Next.”

Six months later, Drake utilized ESPN’s Sportscenter to announce the release date of Certified Lover Boy via a cryptic message.

Since then, Drake used Billboard all over the country to reveal the featured artists of the project via their respective hometowns:

Shortly after, Kanye West allegedly put up Billboards in Toronto to promote his latest album, DONDA, to taunt the Certified Lover Boy as the beef between the two reignited last month following Drake’s verse on Trippie Redd‘s “Betrayal.”
