J. Cole is giving a behind-the-scenes look into the making of The Off-Season.
The Dreamville boss has announced the release of a documentary to accompany his sixth studio album. On Sunday, he shared the first trailer for “Applying Pressure: The Off-Season Documentary,” which finds him reflecting on a pivotal point in his career.
“This is the moment that a lot of your favorite rappers hit a crossroad,” says Cole while his “i n t e r l u d e” plays in the background. “Are you okay with getting comfortable? Did you leave no stone unturned creatively?”
He then adds, “And when I thought about that feeling, I’m like, ‘Nah, I’m not cool with that.’”
The 26-second clip also shows the NBA hopeful shooting hoops in between studio sessions for his highly-anticipated album.
The Off-Season, the follow-up to 2018’s KOD, arrives Friday. Ahead of its release, Cole served up a teaser with the album’s “i n t e r l u d e.”
“Applying Pressure: The Off-Season Documentary” will be released Monday at 1 p.m. EST. Watch the trailer below.
