After delivering a first taster of The Off-Season last week in the form of new song "i n t e r l u d e" last week and announcing the release of his Applying Pressure documentary, J. Cole has apparently signed to play with the Rwandan national basketball team.

ESPN's Marc J. Spears revealed on Twitter this afternoon (10 May) that Cole is currently completing a four-day quarantine and is "expected to play for Rwanda Patriots BBC" in the Basketball Africa League, potentially as soon as Sunday (16 May).

Spears added in his tweet that the rapper's "signing is expected to be official Thursday."

The news comes just hours ahead of the release of J. Cole's Applying Pressure documentary, which will give a behind the scenes look at his upcoming album The Off-Season.

J. Cole's The Off-Season album will be released on Friday (14 May).
