The real is back. Two years after his last LP, J. Cole unleashes his fourth studio album, 4 Your Eyez Only.
The feature-less 10-song effort is introduced by “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and is closed by the nearly 9-minute title track. In between are songs like “Immortal” and “Neighbors,” which Dreamville President Ibrahim Hamad called early standouts in the rapper’s Eyez documentary.
Earlier this week, Cole opted to drop “Everybody Dies” and “False Prophets” individually, though neither made the final tracklisting.
Marking his first release since 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which famously went double platinum with no features, 4 Your Eyez Only includes some of the Fayetteville rapper’s most purposeful work yet.
