North Carolina rhymer J. Cole has never been something to play with on a microphone, continuing to prove his lyrical dexterity in a world full of trap rappers on new album, KOD.
The southern spitter announced the new album just this Tuesday, the 17th, accompanied by two free concerts for fans in both New York City and London, England, where the MC played the 12 track album in its entirety.
The “Love Yourz” rapper reportedly told fans during the last-minute show that K.O.D. has multiple meanings, standing for Kids on Drugs, King Overdosed and Kill Our Dreams.
