In September 2016, J. Cole — while performing at the Meadows Music & Arts Festival in Queens, NY, revealed that his set would be his “last show for a while.” Most people took it as a sign that he would head back into the studio to complete his highly anticipated fourth album.

As it turns out, those people would be right. Not only would Cole would finish the album, he is ready to share it to the world much sooner than expected.
