Reps for J. Cole were not immediately available for comment. In addition to the same, the Dreamville boss has also wiped clean his Instagram, which has become a staple strategy in Hip-Hop to announce to fans that something new is on the way.
On Monday, Cole took to social media to announce that he would be holding a surprise concert at New York City's Gramercy Theatre and that it would be a "first come, first served" kind of situation. "No press list. No guest list".
Cole was in Australia in December wrapping up the touring cycle for his last album, 2016's 4 Your Eyez Only.
Fillers from attendees at the show claim that the new album will contain 12 tracks that was recorded over a period of two weeks.
