J. Cole - 4 Your Eyez Only LP


Multi-platinum-selling North Carolina rapper J. Cole's newest release 4 Your Eyez Only serves as his fourth consecutive No. 1 album following 2011's Cole World, 2013's Born Sinner and 2014's Forest Hills Drive. Sticking with tradition Your Eyez Only contains zero features and even a rarer sighting in hip hop is that Cole also takes every writing credit here. Production comes from the likes of such heavy hitters as Just Blaze, Vinylz, Kanye West, 40, and Boi-1da. The multi-leveled album follows the story of a fictional character, James McMillian Jr, as he goes from selling crack, to falling in love and starting a family. In the final track, it is revealed that James has died, and almost the whole album is a tape he created for his daughter to listen to after he's gone.
