J Cole hints at new album, ‘The Fall Off,’ arriving in 2020

The rapper teased his upcoming project at Day N Vegas festival.

It’s true: A new J Cole album is apparently arriving sometime next year.

Before his set at the Day N Vegas festival in Las Vegas this weekend, Cole teased a new album, which appears to be titled The Fall Off, with a satirical political campaign video. The clip is soundtracked by patriotic music, and features images and footage of the rapper throughout the years.

“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 that can heal the inter-generational war,” a voiceover recites in the video. The trailer ends with a call to “make your voice be heard” and to vote for The Fall Off in 2020.


Watch fan-shot footage of the teaser below:

Cole had previously hinted at the title The Fall Off on “1985 (Intro to The Fall Off),” the closing track of his last record, KOD. The Dreamville head honcho also confirmed to a fan on Twitter that he was already working on his new album in April 2018.


The Fall Off will be the rapper’s sixth studio full-length and his first solo record in two years. Earlier this year, Cole busied himself with Revenge of the Dreamers III, an all-star compilation featuring Dreamville artists and non-label guests.
