J. Cole recalls the good moments he shared with one of his close friends before the friend progressively gave in to the lure of crime and drugs in the penultimate song on his sixth studio album, The Off-Season.
The song closes with J Cole’s friend’s suspected murder as Cole laments the state of their failing friendship.
J Cole produced the song himself and used a sample from MF DOOM’s song “Valerian Root” to honor the late rapper.
I’m hoping that the success of this album will help the Afro-classic crooner reach new heights.
