On DJ Khaled’s Major Key, J. Cole had a song called “Jermaine’s Interlude” where he said that he has “played with thoughts of retirement.” Since then, fans have been on high alert hoping that the rapper doesn’t go through with those thoughts.
Over the weekend, J. Cole performed at the Meadows Festival, filling in for The Weeknd who pulled out of the show due to preparing for his ‘SNL’ performances. While on stage, J. Cole told the sold out crowd that the performance would be his “last performance for a very long time.” Since the announcement fans wondered why is Cole taking a break? Is he working on a new album? Is his wife expecting their first child? While we speculate, check out the announcement below.
