Just days away from the release of his third studio album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, J. Cole has surprised us with a short video for "Intro". The Fayetteville rapper sings through the album's 2 minute long opening track, asking "Do you wanna be happy?" The backing track is mellow but there's a nice rawness to Cole's voice as he repeats the question over and over, which makes us really excited to hear the rest of his songs. His voice breaks at the 1:48 mark with the word "happy" and it's just so real, a quality lots of hip hop artists lack these days. Listen and watch as J. Cole bikes around New York in his video for "Intro". 2014 Forest Hills Drive comes out December 9.
