J. Cole could be dropping off some new music very soon.
During a Dreamville Records Instagram live session, which surfaced on the internet on Sunday afternoon (July 12), EarthGang’s Olu said that an album from Cole is on the way, but it’s experiencing a slight delay.
“Cole album is coming. It’s in [U.S.] Customs [and Border Protection] right now,” the Dreamville artist shared. “Cole album gotta get through [U.S.] Customs [and Border Protection] ’cause you know, corona.” It’s unclear what the album title will be or if it will contain any features.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection inspects products, goods and more entering the United States to ensure that banned agricultural products and counterfeit goods aren’t being imported. Additionally, according to the CBP’s official website, “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is working closely with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other federal, state, and local agencies to support the whole-of-government effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep everyone safe.” There have also been on-site staffing shortages due to the coronavirus, which could also play a role in the upcoming album’s delay.
In the clip, Olu also shared that an album from Spillage Village, which consists of JB, EarthGang and J.I.D, is on the way, as well as new records from EarthGang..
