J. Cole has been laying a bit low since the release of his sophomore LP Born Sinner (released in June 2013), but now the “Crooked Smile” rapper has made a surprise announcement of a new record! Titled 2014 Forest Hill Drive, Cole’s forthcoming third studio album will drop on December 9.

The 13-track LP was made available for pre-order on iTunes last night following the news. Cole also plans to make a bold move with the project, revealing to fans “This time I’m releasing no singles, just the album. See you in 3 weeks. Thank you for the love and support.”

He also released a mini-documentary about his return to his hometown of Fayetteville, N.C. — which you can watch after the jump!
