J. Cole Teases New Album Titled, “The Fall Off,” For 2020 Release
Cole World! J. Cole recently headlined the ‘Day N Vegas’ music festival on Friday (Nov. 1st), and during his set, the Grammy nominated rapper decided to give fans a small tease into his upcoming album, The Fall Off, due in 2020. In a video from his announcement, Cole used a presidential-style campaign ad that ends off with the name of the album. The narrator begins,
“It seems like sh*t is all f*cked up. The country needs a hero to turn to in these turbulent times. Jermaine Cole is that hero. He’s a man whose humility knows no bounds. A man whose pen is so potent, each word of his verses reportedly cost $2,000. We need someone with big ideas and bold solutions. An expert in diplomacy. A candidate who can heal the inter-generational war…. There is only one answer, one true unifier to heal the country. Make your voice heard. Vote for The Fall Off in 2020.”
