J. Cole Announces New Album ‘K.O.D’ Dropping This Friday, April 20th

J. Cole is a huge fan of the surprise album. He did it on his last two albums and after hearing his manager Ibrahim Hamad talk on ItsTheReal’s podcast, I knew this next one was going to be announced a week ahead of time at the very most.

First today J. Cole cleared his Instagram and added a new profile picture to both that account and his Twitter. It was a just a shade of purple and a few hours later, Cole tweeted about a New York event in just a few hours. It seemed like a fans only show but what it turned out to be was a fans only listening party.

He announced at the venue that the album would be dropping this Friday on April 20th and he also just confirmed it on Twitter. We’ve also got a snippet from someone who snuck their phone in down below.
