Rapper J. Cole is set to release a documentary to accompany the launch of his new album.

Cole revealed that he's planning to release 'Applying Pressure: The Off-Season Documentary', which will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of his new album.

"This is the moment that a lot of your favourite rappers hit a crossroad. Are you OK with getting comfortable if you leave no stone unturned creatively? I thought a lot about that – 'Nah, I'm not cool with that'."

J Cole previously revealed that he hopes to remain a relevant figure in the music industry for decades to come admitting that he wants to become a Bruce Springsteen-like figure for rap music.

 "I don't wanna be making a documentary 20 years from now talking about this as if it was the end.

"I wanna still be present and still making music. I wanna be like Bruce Springsteen or something, making songs that are relevant. If a tragedy happens, make a song and I just put it out and people know I'm still speaking for them. I wanna be like that. I wanna have my art always appreciated."

The rapper is currently in Rwanda, making his Basketball dreams come true after signing a deal to play in the Basketball Africa League. Cole will show off his skills on the court as he plays with Rwanda's Patriots BBC. He is expected to play three to six games this season.
