Just three days after J. Cole announced the April 20 release his surprise album, KOD, the rapper took to Twitter to confirm what the cryptic acronym stands for.
He noted that KOD actually has three meanings: Kids on Drugs, King Overdosed, and Kill Our Demons. He followed up with yet another mysterious message, confirming that he will explain nothing else. “The rest the album I leave to your interpretation,” he wrote.
KOD. 3 meanings.
Kids on Drugs
Kill Our Demons
The rest the album I leave to your interpretation.

KOD serves as a follow up to the platinum 2016 record, 4 Your Eyez Only. J. Cole performed the upcoming release in its entirety during a secret show at Gramercy Theatre in New York City on Monday (April 16), which he announced just hours before doors opened.
