The wait is finally over. J. Cole fans across the world are rejoicing as the one-of-a-king MC from North Carolina has released his latest project, The Off-Season.

The new album is 12 tracks long, and features guest verses from 21 Savage, Morray, Bas, and Lil Baby. The songs are uniquely titled, with each letter of each track spaced out. Previously released single “i n t e r l u d e” is the album’s ninth track, and 21 Savage, who appeared during the beginning of J. Cole’s mini-documentary, Applying Pressue: The Off-Season, turns in a sterling verse on “my.life.”

The album features a bevy of top-tier producers, including Timbaland, Boi-1da, DJ Dahi, Jake One, Frank Dukes, Tae Beast, Maneesh, Wu10, Sucuki, Coleman, Tommy Parker, Mario Luciano, T-Minus, and Cole himself.

The album has already been met with strong reviews including Variety who wrote, “Cole’s new record, ‘The Off-Season,’ sits in the midway point of his exit plan, and also reads as a turning point. Stripped down to an at once polished and grimy mixture of soul samples, seizuring trap hi-hats, and boom-bap drums, Cole offers, amid some moments of grave contemplation, a kind of mixtape-energy record of lyrical exercises and bangers.”

Shortly before the release of the album, Cole announced that he would be playing basketball for the Rwandan club team Patriots BBC. Rumor has it he may hit the court as early as this Sunday. Regardless of his skills on the court, fans everywhere are relieved that J. Cole is once again back in action.
