There have been rumors that J. Cole would be dropping soon as much speculation began late last year, and the anticipation heightened just last week when Dreamville artist Bas posted and deleted a photo of Cole in the booth, with a two weeks warning in the caption. Fast forward a week and we not only have the official release date for Cole’s sixth studio album ‘The Off-Season’ but the North Carolina native blessed us all with the first offering from the project, “i n t e r l u d e”.

Taking to his social media accounts to drop off the track Cole explained, “old myself I would drop the album all at once. Sometimes you gotta say f*ck it tho. New song tonight. 12 o’clock. ‘i n t e r l u d e’ from The Off-Season.” With a Nipsey Hussle and Pimp C nod on the track, Cole spits:
Cole world, n*ggas knowin’ what it is
Just in case they don’t, I show ’em what it is
Then in Summer, I do real numbers
Couldn’t dare touch it if they sold the double-disc
Block hot, n*ggas burnin’ up the street
Shots poppin’ and we heard it up the street
It’s a war, n*ggas runnin’ up the score
Jesus said that you should turn the other cheek
Peep the full track below!
