Days after showing us his video for "Intro", J. Cole has finally released 2014 Forest Hills Drive. Inspired by his childhood home in North Carolina, the album has no featured artists, which may come as a surprise to fans of songs like "Crooked Smile" (TLC sings the hook). But Cole proves he doesn't need collaborations to make great music. His storytelling speaks for itself in the 13-track album, where he recalls adolescent memories (including a very detailed telling of his first encounter with a girl). Rapping over relaxed beats, J. Cole keeps it raw and real and delivers a great third chapter. 2014 Forest Hills Drive is available now in stores, on iTunes and on Spotify. Take a listen below.
