J. Cole's "The Fall Off" has been a long time in the making, with the "Middle Child" rapper having first announced the album way back in December 2020.

Now, over three years later, we finally have a taste of what the project might just sound like.

On Wednesday, Cole dropped a vlog from his current It’s All a Blur — Big as the What? Tour with Drake to burner accounts on both Instagram and YouTube.

Titled "Might Delete Later, Vol. 1," the vlog, built in the mold of a classic "Smack DVD," includes clips of Cole performing, hanging out backstage, and working in the studio with Tay Keith.

The vlog also includes snippets of two new songs.

The first snippet begins shortly after a video clip which shows Cole and his team putting up promotional material for "The Fall Off" in what appears to be a parking garage.

"Know how I feel, starvation / If I fall off..." Cole can be heard rapping before the snippet abruptly ends.

The snippet of the second new song is much longer and hears Cole rapping of his desire to make 2024 his own.

I said I was finished but I want another two summers / Hall of famer hungrier than all the newcomers," he raps.

On the track, Cole also compares "The Fall Off" to Jay-Z's seminal 1996 debut album "Reasonable Doubt."

Earlier this month, Cole confirmed that he is close to finishing "The Fall Off."

During the opening night of his and Drake's tour at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida on February 2, Cole told the crowd: “Right now, I’m at the tail-end of working on this album I’ve been working on for a long time."

“It’s called 'The Fall Off,'" he added.

Drake then interjected to tell the audience that he'd already heard Cole's new project, dubbing it a "classic."

It's unclear if either of the two new songs Cole previewed in his vlog will feature on "The Fall Off," which is set to be Cole's seventh studio album and first since 2021's "The Off-Season."
