J. Cole Releases Artwork For Upcoming Album ‘K.O.D.’

Artist J. Cole had hip-hop fans in a tizzy when he announced on Monday that he was going to be releasing his new album ‘KOD’ on Friday, April 20th.

There was so much excitement for his upcoming album, that his post had over 300,000 retweets.

Well, on Wednesday he released the artwork for his upcoming album.

There is definitely a lot going on here, but it’s clear to see that there are a bunch of kids displayed doing all types of hard drugs with the message “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction.”

TSL Contributor Keith Nelson, who was at a listening of KOD, spoke on how the topics of drugs and drug addiction were mentioned throughout the album.

The album title itself can be taken in many ways because it has three different meanings that act as themes for the album. Kidz on Drugz, King OverDosed, and Kill our Demonz are the three meanings for K.O.D. with each being tied together by Coles derisive outlook on the different sides of drug addiction.

Cole will definitely address these issues in the album and when his album releases on Friday, listeners will be shown the entire picture.

One thing is for sure though, Cole SZN is coming.
