J. Cole is one of my favorite rappers from this generation. A couple months ago, my Mixtape Friday was my personal J. Cole compilation. Recently, J. Cole stated that he’s no longer doing features after he appeared on the new Gang Starr’s Family and Loyalty. J. Cole has put out five albums, a few mixtapes, three compilations and been featured on numerous tracks. 5 years ago, J. Cole released his classic third album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive. 2014 Forest Hills Drive was the follow-up to his classic Born Sinner project. The album went triple platinum and it had no features on the entire album. 2014 Forest Hills Drive won album of the year at the BET Hip Hop and Billboard Music Awards. The classic 2014 Forest Hills Drive project from J. Cole is my Music Monday this week.
Apparently was the first single from the album and it dropped the day the project came out. Apparently was nominated for a Grammy and it set the tone for the album. Wet Dreamz was the second single off the album and it actually went platinum. Once again, this was another gem off the album and another favorite of mine. In the summer of 2015, J. Cole dropped another track off the album. No Role Modelz was the name and it also went platinum. No Role Modelz had the famous opening line, first things first rest in peace Uncle Phil. J. Cole delivered another classic track with No Role Modelz. In the winter of 2016, J. Cole released his fourth and final single of the album. Love Yourz is the track and once again this was another banger from the album.
This project is one of those albums that you play and skip maybe a couple tracks. January 28th is probably my favorite song off the album. 03’ Adolescence, A Tale of 2 Citiez, Fire Squad, St. Tropez and Hello are my other favorite tracks. As always, check out the track listing below and it’s followed by the stream links.
