J. Cole is my favorite rapper. His beats are mellow, lyrics thoughtful, and songs soulful. I saw him a couple of months ago at The Meadows, and he was easily the best act of the weekend. Better than Chance, Kanye West, or Pretty Lights. Better than everyone. During that Meadows concert, he said it was probably going to be his last show for a while. Now we know why he said that.
Cole came outta nowhere yesterday to announce his fourth album, 4 Your Eyez Only, will be dropping on December 9. Alongside that announcement came a documentary about the making of the album called Eyez. Check it out, because it’s everything that makes J. Cole the best.
Fun fact: J. Cole went double-platinum with no features on his last album, 2014 Forrest Hills Drive.
