If so, it will be Cole's first full-length album since 2016's 4 Your Eyez Only.

Naturally, Twitter had all kinds of things to say about a new, surprise J. Cole joint. Cole fans started their week off with a bang after he announced that he is dropping a new album, KOD, this Friday (April 20).

We most recently heard a new verse from J. Cole on the NBA Playoffs commercial for ESPN which could've been the first hint that something was on the way. But then all in one day, his fans got a mystery concert/event in New York City ... There's apparently no features on the version of the album that was played.

As we get closer to the date, look out for a single or any new teases from J. Cole prior to the Friday release.
