J. Cole’s next album has been delayed by coronavirus
J. Cole‘s next studio album has been delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, according to EarthGang member Olu.
The follow-up to 2018’s ‘KOD’ had been expected to arrive this year, with Cole hinting in November that ‘The Fall Off’ would be released in 2020.
During a recent Instagram Live session, Olu confirmed that the record had been delayed by the coronavirus outbreak but that it is still “coming”.
“It’s in [U.S.] Customs [and Border Protection] right now,” Olu joked about the album’s progress. “Cole album gotta get through Customs ’cause, you know, Corona.”
You can see a clip of Olu talking about that album and a number of other upcoming records on Cole’s Dreamville record label below.
Cole’s only release of 2020 so far has been ‘Snow on tha Bluff’, a track that saw him address police brutality and the recent Black Lives Matter protests, as well as apparently call out Noname.
Last month, Noname appeared to respond to J Cole on the track ‘Song 33’.
The Madlib-produced song seemed to address J. Cole’s suspected criticism of her in ‘Snow On Tha Bluff’, rapping: “Wow look at him go / He really ’bout to write about me while the world is in smokes? / When his people in trees, when George was begging for his mother saying he couldn’t breathe / you thought to write about me?”
Noname then apologised for writing and releasing ‘Song 33’, saying that after “thinking a lot about it” she was “not proud” of how the situation was handled.
