J. Cole’s lead-up to “The Off-Season” finds the rapper’s confidence at an all-time high, and fans can’t wait to see what he’s been cooking up.
Over the weekend, Cole kicked off the hype train by revealing he had “Just rode through the city to The Off-Season,” a session that left him feeling particularly excited. And while the Dreamville emcee opted to keep additional details close to the chest, today finds him once again using his Instagram page to express his current state of mind.

“Confidence through the roof,” he writes, adding a few rocket ship emojis for good measure. True, it’s hardly what you’d call breaking news, though it’s certainly interesting to see Cole’s mindset in the days leading up to the big release. Though it might be unwise to read too deeply into a mere declaration of confidence, one can only hope we’ll see a Cole acutely aware of his lyrical prowess and flexing said prowess at every turn.
Check out Cole’s hype-inducing statement below, and sound off if you’re among the many excited to see what The Off-Season has in store. Considering it’s the first of several projects slated on Cole’s calendar, including It’s A Boy and The Fall-Off, perhaps this is the beginning of another prolific run. We can only hope that can be the case.
