Its always a good day in Hip Hop , when an artist like J.Cole’s drops a new album . J.Cole’s fifth studio album titled ‘K.O.D’ is finally out . It’s said that the project was recorded in only two weeks and acronym has three meaning: “King Overdosed,” “Kill Our Demons,” and “Kids on Drugs.” . The album contains 12 tracks and features two songs with Cole’s alter-ego Kill Edward, who appears on ‘The Cut Off’ & ‘Friends’.The album tackles the ongoing issue of drug abuse and the current state in the USA .
The Album cover art which was created by Detroit’s Sixmau, includes the following disclaimer: “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction”; however, it’s initially unclear what kind of message Cole is trying to convey. If it’s not glorify drug abuse, is it condemning it? Well, it seem the rapper is letting the listeners decide: “The rest of the album I leave to your interpretation,” Cole tweeted just hours before KOD’s release
KOD. 3 meanings.
Kids on Drugs
Kill Our Demons
The rest of the album I leave to your interpretation.
