J.Cole has confirmed his new single “Middle Child” will drop on Wednesday evening. Produced by T-Minus (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Bryson Tiller), the single will his first official track of 2019.
Fans have been watching J.Cole’s every move since his infamous Dreamville-Revengers recording sessions in Atlanta last week. Now that the bars are laid down, the creative is talking his sh*t on social media. Well, almost.
It appears the “ATM” rapper wiped his barely-used Instagram account clean and posted a graphic with the words, “I’m counting my bullets.” While Cole doesn’t engage on the platform, he was seen in the form of in-studio photographs by his team and over 100 collaborators who were in attendance of the Dreamville-Revengers recording sessions.
But as quickly as it appeared on Monday (Jan. 20), it was also deleted from his account.
Cole confirmed the conclusion of the sessions last week that included elite peers like T.I., Ludacris and Akon in addition to the game’s most promising acts like Childish Major, Dreezy, Smino and R&B/jazz maestro Masego. Dreamville members like Ari Lennox, J.I.D., Bas and EarthGang were also in attendance.

This is sure to be another banner year for a Cole as his breakout mixtape The Warm Up, turns ten this year.
Seems like all we can do now is sit and wait.
