J. Cole Drops Surprise ‘Might Delete Later’ Album on Eve of Dreamville Festival

With Dreamville Festival set for this weekend, J. Cole dropped a big surprise with a new, unannounced album, "Might Delete Later." The album from the Fayetteville native dropped at midnight, and features 12 tracks, including a response of sorts to the recent Kendrick Lamar diss track. The final song on the album is "7 Minute Drill" In the song, he calls out Lamar with some pretty clear thoughts on his career progression: He still doing shows but fell off like 'The Simpsons Your first shit was classic, your last shit was tragic Your second shit put n-sto sleep but they gassed it Your third shit was massive and that was your prime I was trailing right behind and I just now hit mine. There are also a couple of good Fayetteville references in the song, including a reference to Fayetteville Public Works Commission in the first line of the chorus: Light work like it's PWC He also mentions he "came up in the Ville, so I'm good when it's tension" in the first verse, and Aside from the response track, there are a number of special appearances on the Might Delete Later album, including Ari Lennox, Cam'Ron, Central Cee, Bas and Gucci Mane. Could that mean we have some additional surprises in store for the stage this weekend in Raleigh? https://www.instagram.com/p/C5XiCVfuWlz/?hl=en&img_index=1 It's the first album for Cole since The Off-Season in 2021.
