J Cole recently released his new album “KOD”. He stated on twitter that the album title has three meanings that all seem to have a similar symbolization with narcotics.
Throughout the album Cole speaks to his fans encouraging them not do drugs by giving an example of his childhood background on the song “Once an Addict,” he explains his feelings concerning his mother’s relationship with alcoholism. Cole uses this interlude to show that he also deals with drugs and substances like alcohol, in his personal circle as well as wishing he interfered more.
The album contains 12 songs with a feature by Kill Edward who appears to be Cole’s alter ego on “The Cut Off” and “Friends.” On Monday a soundcloud page was made under Kill Edward with the track called “Titled Wave (Just a Reference).” Kill Edward had some major streams which caused him to be found on Apple Music and Spotify as well.
J Cole fans were up for a surprise by the release of KOD. By breaking opening day records with no features except the mysterious Kill Edward, which of course is J. Cole himself.
