Jermaine Cole, American rapper better known as J. Cole has put out ‘Interlude’ — the first track off ‘The Off-Season’, his much-anticipated sixth studio album.


The track was released on Friday — a few days after the North Carolina rapper announced the release date for his 6th album.

The 36-year-old Grammy-nominated emcee took to his Twitter page on Thursday to reveal that he had initially planned to drop ‘The Off-Season’ all at once.

“Told myself I would drop the album all at once. Sometimes you gotta say f### it tho. New song tonight. 12 o’clock. ‘i n t e r l u d e’ from The Off-Season,” he wrote.


A few hours later, the ‘Born Sinner’ crooner sent fans into a frenzy when he dropped ‘Interlude’ with a terse note that reads: “It can go up it can go down… either way I’m prepared.”

In the short track, the Dreamville Records powerhouse reiterates his presence at the throne of the rap game. The proclaimed interlude has a single verse that covers topics ranging from pain, death to religion.

“I’m a livin’ little good thing| It’s like you never lived for me| Mama said you was a good thing, uh| Good, good, good| Yeah we came a long way, man, we done came a long way| And we sittin’ on top of this sh*t| This sh*t can go one or two ways| This sh*t can go up, it can go down| Either way, nigga, I’m prepared| Feel me? Yeah,” he raps.


‘The Off-Season’ comes on the back of the success recorded by ‘KOD’, his 2018 album, which carries an abbreviation that stands for “Kids on Drugs,” “King Overdose” and “Kill Our Demons.”
