Well it’s finally here. After trending on social media over the past 7+ days for various reasons, J. Cole‘s new LP ‘4 Your Eyez Only‘ is now available. Standing at a light 10-tracks, the highly anticipated full-length album arrived midnight December 9th. This stands as Cole‘s fourth major project, as he continues to build a rather impressive resume. Putting his name back in the conversation, he dropped two songs entitled “False Prophets” and “Everybody Dies“. As you probably know, he called out a few rappers including Kanye, Wale, Lil Yachty and others. However, after listening to the project, we can confirm they do not set the tone for what your about to hear, at all. This album is a dedication to his wife, apparent daughter and a letter to the daughter of his close friend that sadly passed away. He also uses the life of his friend to detail black on black violence, police brutality, the life of a dealer and much more.
Some ‘go to’ tracks include track 6 “Change” and the 9-minute title track (last song) ‘4 Your Eyez Only‘, which both have beautiful music composition and piercing lyricism. Of course, you get the real full, experience by listening from start to finish though. He interestingly puts a spin on Bryson Tiller‘s owned hit “Exchange” with “Deju Vu”, which seems to be a fan favourite at current. We get some real rap on ‘”Immortal” & “Neighbours“, which are the closest things to “turn up” on this album. There’s a lot of vocal work and singing, especially on the two “She’s Mine” interludes. Overall it’s an stunning effort, a story with many pieces that may take a few listens to understand completely. It is now available for stream and download on every major platform including iTunes, Spotify, Google Play and more. Touching on some real deep issues, stream the project below via Apple Music.
