In the first week of December 2020, J Cole had teased his fans with his much-awaited sixth studio album called ‘The Fall Off’, but looks like the acclaimed rapper has tweaked his plans a little bit but only for the good. The ‘Middle Child’ hitmaker now intends to drop new music before he releases ‘The Fall Off’. Well, that’s what at least his new cryptic post on Instagram tells us.

What is J Cole's new cryptic post about?

The 35-year-old rapper, who has 5M followers on his official Instagram account, shared a picture straight from his studio and teased his fans which we are assuming, might be his new projects before he drops ‘The Fall Off'. In the Instagram post, the hip-hop icon shared a handwritten note which reveals his plans and it includes two projects before he releases his sixth studio album.

He captioned the post as, "I still got some goals I gotta check off for’ I scram..." The note starts with the title 'The Fall Off Era', and features a list of things he aims to complete. The first two items, 'Features' and 'ROTD3' are crossed out, implying they’ve been completed. The first item refers to his impressive run of guest appearances he did between 2018 and 2019 and the second one references Dreamville’s star-studded compilation project ‘Revenge Of The Dreamers III', which arrived in summer 2019.



The next two items in the list read 'The Off-Season' and 'It’s A Boy'. J Cole then ends his to-do list with 'The Fall Off'. Now, there are no details about the former and all we can guess is it can be either two songs from ‘The Fall Off’ or it might be his full-length project before he drops his sixth album. However, it is believed that ‘The Fall Off’ will be Cole’s new mixtape before the album. MEAWW will keep you posted.

When will J Cole drop new music?

J Cole has only teased his fans with the names of what we assume will be his new projects, but he hasn’t shared any details on the day or the date or any timeline for the same. MEAWW will keep you updated. If we speak about ‘The Fall Off’, it will be his first full-length project since 2018's ‘KOD'.
