FAYETTEVILLE, NC—Wondering if it was too late to cancel the album rollout, a visibly humiliated J. Cole listened to The Off-Season Friday and asked, “Oh my God, is that seriously what my voice sounds like?” “I can’t believe y’all let me record a whole project without telling me to fix this,” said Cole, who assumed his voice sounded “at least” two octaves lower, asking his sound engineers if they could apply effects to alter it. “Is this what people think I sound like? It’s just way more nasally than I thought. Jesus, I’m basically whining my way through all these tracks. I sent a few of these to Jay-Z. He’s gonna think I’m an asshole. Why didn’t I add a few features to break this up?” At press time, J.Cole was panicking after realizing that his production on the album was off-key.
