Although, he had previously announced plans for a mixtape called The Off-Season, which is expected to precede his next album The Fall Off , we can’t tell if or not “Middle Child” will appear on the project or the upcoming Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III.
Prior to today’s announcement, Cole cleared out his Instagram account and posted what may be the lyrics to “Middle Child.” The since-deleted posts read “I’m counting my bullets,” “I’m loading my clips,” “I’m writing down names,” and “I’m making a list.”
