As we know now J.Cole just released his album last night, he was suppose to release it today but did it before. It has the whole world shook, at least if you are a J cole fan. If you are you know what I mean. It's an album where he comes back and raps to us so many things happening and more than anything a story him and his friend lived. In all of his albums he gives us his heart and his soul, but this one he out did himself and everybody is looking at him like a legend.

In this album he raps about his friend life, his life and how he doesn't think he should be alive anymore. He starts the story with the song with Deja vu where he meets a girl and that is what the song is about. They both fall in love (She's mine part 1), then Cole realizes his friends are dying in the streets and he continues selling drugs. He then has a daughter (she's mine part 2) he describes and says everything he wants to make possible for his daughter, pretty much give her the world and make sure that his daughter has everything. In the last song he says I'm sorry but once you hear this album I am dead selling dope and living the life in the streets killed him. Yet J.Cole didn't die so it makes sense now he is rapping about his friends life and his life, how they were living both found a girl and they both were going to have a daughter but J.Cole's friend passed away. J.Cole tells his friends daughter that her dad passed away but he was a good person.

This album is technically J.Cole's life and his friend. They both went through the same thing and lived one heck of a life. Yet he is grateful to be alive and he knows he has a mission in this world and he plans on keep going but doing everything right. For his daughter more than anything, and his family. He worships God so much knowing he has helped him. Album seriously deserves a Grammy it's amazing and his words really do have you shook it still gives me goosebumps every time I listen to the album especially when you hear the lyrics and it isn't just the beat.

I've been listening to his 2014 FHD nonstop till this day. I truly love J Cole and he honestly shocked me when I heard about the new album release date. A lot of people were disappointed but they never actually heard the album they just wanted the hype and bullshit. In my opinion the album's great, he's very real, lyrical, and put did for him not the people which I LOVE.
My Favorite/Happy track on 4 Your Eyez Only is Folding Clothes

I love when an artist tells you about their personal life through their music. I love this album he is still talking about social struggles but a love story background behind it. His style has not changed much because I hate it when an artist comes out with a new album and they try to reinvent themselves and ruin the reason why you liked that artist. I have heard a few of the songs on the album so I will definitely be buying the album.
