While the internet’s been furiously debating who the actual recipients of those surefire shots from J Cole were, his recent lyrical assaults on ‘False Prophets’ and ‘everybody dies’ also had us wondering whether both tracks would actually make the album. Why? Well it wouldn’t be uncharacteristic considering that Cole’s only television appearance ahead of 2014 ‘Forest Hills Drive’ album, included the unreleased track ‘Be Free’.
So characteristically it turns out both ‘False Prophets’ and ‘everybody dies’ have been simultaneously made available to stream and download on iTunes, Tidal and co. And it appears after Cole revealed the final tracklilsting that both tracks will not be appearing on the forthcoming album ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ out this Friday.
For someone who’s adept at keeping a low profile, J Cole threw the internet into another furious frenzy after delivering a lyrical assault on two tracks in the new documentary ‘Eyez’ exclusively featured on Tidal. Shots over shots with bars over bars – J Cole is back with a beef to take on ‘False Prophets’ and fake deep rappers, the OG gatekeeper rappers, pitchfork rappers, amateur 8 week rappers on ‘Everybody Dies’.
Due to arrive in just over one week, J Cole is officially dropping the album ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ set to be released on the 9th of December 2016. Released via Dreamville/Roc Nation and available to pre-order now on iTunes, the tracks run at a total of ten, although titles and features (if any) are yet to be announced.
