COTI3 is the third installment in Banks’ Course Of The Inevitable series, and is due to arrive on April 21. In a photo posted to Instagram earlier this week, he revealed the black-and-white cover of the album, which features him with his young daughter overlooking the skyline of the city.
“The Course Of The Inevitable III (Pieces Of My Pain) 4/21,” he wrote in the caption. Fans were quick to share their excitement in the comments, with one dubbing it “album of the year already” before it’s even been released.
“Fam, this second arc of your career is a masterpiece in progress,” another fan wrote. “Much success to you. So thankful for the stories, the art, and your creating opportunities for others.”
Prior to this, he released a visual accompanying his track with Meth, where the two trade sharp bars and vivid images against a variety of moody backdrops and some black and white shots over a V Don production, demonstrating their chemistry.
COTI 3 isn’t the only new release fans can expect from Blue Hefner. During an interview with HipHopDX last year, Lloyd Banks revealed he has enough material to release an album each year for the next five years.
“I just feel like I’m chasing the ultimate album, you know what I mean?” he began.
He continued: “So it’s like, I can’t possibly be finished. I also lost more than a few years from just taking hiatuses in the business. In a lot of spots, I’ve might have been expected to have momentum, but I wasn’t in a situation at the time to just drop album after album.”
