J. Cole fans, the dawn of a new day may be upon us.
In a surprising, yet rare, occurrence, the Dreamville leader took to Twitter to announce that, “It’s time,” right before deleting the tweet and replacing it with a more detailed message.
“NYC,” he wrote in a flyer that he also posted to his official Instagram account. “Come through. Couple hours from now. First come first serve.”
Cole also scrubbed his Instagram clean of all photos except the graphic for the recent announcement, which also reads, “No Phones. No Camera. No Bags. No Press List. No Guest List.” The purple background beneath the flyer’s text matches the purple wash over on his social accounts as well, swapping his default photos for a simple, purple circle.
Could this mean a surprise album? Another world tour? More platinum (with no features) music on our hands?
The world may never know…well, until 6:00 p.m. EST.
But fans can’t handle the anticipation, and they’re taking to the internet to express it the best way they know how in the reactions below.
