(AllHipHop News) The closing track on J. Cole’s KOD album is called "1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’).” The second part of that song’s title caused fans to speculate that a sequel to the emcee’s fifth studio album was on the way.
Jermaine recently sat down for a lengthy interview with Angie Martinez. During the filmed dialogue, Cole discussed the estimated schedule for a project tentatively named The Fall Off.
“I’m gonna drop more music for sure. The album that you’re talking about - The Fall Off - that probably won’t come for another year,” revealed Cole. “I’ve been working on it though for like a year and a half.”
The Dreamville Records head added, “‘Everybody Dies’ and ‘False Prophets’ - that I put out before 4 Your Eyez Only - were songs from The Fall Off.” Cole then announced he’s working on The Fall Off EP and another album as his alter ego kiLL edward.
Martinez’s interview also included Cole addressing the highly publicized reaction to “1985” from Lil Pump and Smokepurpp’s fans. He also shared his thoughts on kiLL edward, Kanye West, Cardi B, Young Thug, modern Hip Hop, social media, addiction, capitalism, celebrity, and more.
KOD was released on April 20 of this year. The LP debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and has been certified Gold by the RIAA.
