December 9th will be the two year anniversary of J. Cole’s critically-acclaimed album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive. What better way for Cole to show appreciation to his fans for making 2014 Forest Hills Drive a double-platinum album than by dropping another album?
Surely, Cole must know that this is an highly anticipated project and expectations are through-the-roof. In the two years between 2014 Forest Hills Drive and 4 Your Eyez Only, Cole has kept himself busy by touring and hitting the stage at multiple festivals. Cole has blessed fans with new bars on rare occasions like “Jermaine’s Interlude” on DJ Khaled’s Major Key album and “Night Job” on Dreamville artist, Bas’ Too High To Riot.
I am truly hoping that Cole gifts his listeners with the log-waited Kendrick Lamar collaboration. Lamar was featured on Cole’s Born Sinner album but he was just on the hook of “Forbidden Fruit”. Just over a year ago — on Black Friday — Cole and Lamar both released separate tracks as Cole rapped over Lamar’s “Alright” and Lamar rapped over Cole’s “A Tale of 2 Citiez”.
