J. Cole’s rapping career only got better from there and soon he soon became a worldwide known rapper. He even went on to making eleven more albums including his very recent “KOD.”

J. Cole is starting to get known for dropping unexpected albums. With such short notice J. Cole tweeted on Monday April 16, 2018 that he will be releasing a new album “KOD” (which stands for “Kids on Drugs, King Overdose and Kill Our Demons”).

He officially released his album on April 20, 2018. His cover is very unique and has a lot of symbolism to it and is said to be how the whole album started in the first place. On the cover J. Cole is dressed as a king and below him there are three skulls and four children all doing different variety of drugs.

He is not encouraging drugs in any way or form. On the top of the album it reads “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction.” He is trying to get a message through in the lyrics, but in order to know the meaning behind the cover, one will have to listen to the album to understand.
