J. Cole is set to release his fifth studio album titled ‘KOD’ on Friday, April 20.
Rumors of J. Cole’s comeback have been picking up a lot momentum over the past couple of days hours after the North Carolina rapper decided to wipe his entire Instagram page clear on Monday morning, and add the color purple to his main image, alluding to the fact that a new album might be right around the corner.
The Dreamville rapper took to Twitter on Monday to reveal the title and release date. “New album. KOD 4/20,” he tweeted.
