I'm not gonna lie - I must have been under a rock for a couple of days because I totally missed that J. Cole's "2014 Forrest Hill Drive" LP dropped the other day. No worries, I caught myself up last night with a quickness, followed by an instant download. Long story short - after a few listens, I really love this project and I love how it doesn't have any features - just him, and his melodies.
Last night he was on Letterman and surprisingly he performed "Be Free" (a song not on the new album) which was inspired by Ferguson - man, what a heartfelt performance! I really admire how he uses his platform to speak on the issues that needs to be heard. Way to go J. Cole.
