J. Cole Announces Three Albums On The Way


When J. Cole takes to social media, you know it’s deliberate. So, when the rapper posted a cryptic photo to Instagram yesterday detailing a list of unreleased albums and teasing impending retirement, best believe there is substance to it.

The Dreamville boss shared his plans for the “Fall Off-era” of albums, which seemingly involves dropping two other projects before released his previously-teased and highly-anticipated The Fall Off album.

However, another detail that has fans scrambling is Cole’s caption, which hints at retirement.  “I still got some goals I gotta check off for’ I scram…” he wrote. Unfortunately, this isn’t news. Earlier this year, he published an essay titled “The Audacity” in which he discussed retirement.

“… A long term plan of becoming the best rapper I could possibly be before hanging up my jersey, leaving nothing on the table when all was said and done. The seeds for ​The Fall Off were planted …” he wrote. “The fire that was once dying out has returned, and for that I’m grateful. On my career bucket list, there remain a few more items to check off before I give myself permission to enter whatever the next chapter of my life may be.”
