posted by Oscar March 24, 2017

J. Cole has announced that will be releasing a new documentary, again using music from the latest NC rapper’s album, but now with a different focus. According to Entertainment Weekly“The documentary promises to illustrate how their struggles over viable housing, voting laws for felons, integration, and more mirror the frustrations felt across the nation,” and it uses footage from cities like Baton Rouge and Fayetteville, North Carolina (Cole’s hometown).

The documentary is called J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only, A Dreamville Film, and it follows up Cole’s TIDAL documentary when his latest album was announced in December, Eyez.

The docu-film was directed by J. Cole and Scott Lazer, who also worked on J. Cole’s previous HBO doc, 2014 Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming.

J. Cole Releases Videos for “Everybody Dies” and “False Prophets”

posted by Oscar December 3, 2016

Soon after releasing his documentary Eyez and announcing a new album is on the way, J. Cole has shared videos for two new tracks “Everybody Dies” and “False Prophets (Be Like This),” both of which appeared as snippets on the doc. The latter seems to be taking shots at Kanye West, evidenced by the verse below:

When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/ It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately/There was a time when this nigga was my hero maybe/That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take/’Cause I believed him when he said his shit was purer and he the type of nigga swear he real but all around is fake

4 Your Eyez Only is out December 9. Check out the video for “Everybody Dies” below. Continue Reading
