J.Cole's latest album KOD dropped in April, but the rapper graced his fans with a surprise freestyle on Tuesday night. 

It also came with a shout out to Oak Cliff and Dallas.  Now, he's getting an invitation to come through in August. 

The song titled "Album of the Year (Freestyle)" is rapped over the same beat by Nas' "Oochie Wally." J. Cole freestyles on social issues ranging from stereotypes to crime and makes a diss to the new generation of "Lil rappers." 

In the video, J. Cole is freestyling outside of a gas station and in a graffiti-tagged tunnel and although the backdrop isn't recognizable as a D-FW hotspot, J. Cole clearly has love for the Dallas neighborhood Oak Cliff.

"Shout out Oak Cliff, I'm 'bout to fly to Dallas. Decade from now I might just buy the Mavericks," he raps.

In a 2015 concert, J. Cole said he spent summers in Oak Cliff as a kid.  It earned him the biggest applause of the night at that performance. 

Hundreds of people are tweeting at J. Cole to stop by the neighborhood on Aug. 18,  the same day he performs at the American Airlines Center. For Oak Cliff, a nonprofit organization, is hosting its fourth annual back to school festival that day at Glendale Park and already sent him an invite via Twitter. 

In the video J.Cole released with World Star Hip Hop, the musician gives a subtle hint that another project is yet to come.

"What you are about to witness is a master class on preparation," the intro video caption reads. "The Off Season coming soon... All roads lead to The Fall Off," is added in the YouTube video caption.
