J.Cole has released the new documentary titled Applying Pressure: The Off-season!
The Scott Lazer-directed film premieres on YouTube just four days before The Off-Season drops. The 12-minute documentary explores the behind the scenes process of the making of J.Cole’s upcoming album, the long-awaited follow-up to 2018’s KOD.
The film followed the previous Cole release of a new track “i n t e r l u d e“, serving as the first glance at The Off-Season.
The film starts with Cole talking with his industry colleague 21 Savage about his album title and approaching his career as an athlete: “One more time before I leave, before I feel like I’m fulfilled in this game, let me try to reach new heights from a skill level standpoint”, he tells 21.
Furthermore, in the documentary, J.Cole talks about fighting against the complacency brought by comfort and luxury, how becoming a father changed him, and more. Despite being quite brief, the film shares a lot of insights to the story of J.Cole and serves as a great body of inspiration for those who work on mastering their craft and pursuing their dreams!
