The first episode of J. Cole's documentary series was excellent, and today Team Cole released episode two. You're gonna want to block out the next 30 minuntes of your life and press play. 

Leading up to the premiere of his Homecoming Concert Film in January, the series takes fans behind-the-scenes of the release of 2014 Forest Hills Drive and immediately after, and unlike many behind-the-scenes films, which can feel more like commercials than actual documentaries, these episodes have offered some real insight into Jermaine Lamarr Cole. Watching Cole listen to final mixes of FHD while he biked through the streets of New York City in episode one was exactly the kind of image that can truly bring us closer to an artist. 

Episode two, "Ain't Nothin Like That," tracks Cole as he begins to perform songs from FHD for the first time, digs deep into the incredible amount of work that goes into putting on live shows, records Cole making beats on his tour bus and much more. I know I said this about epsiode one, but I wasn't lying then, and I'm not lying now. This is a must watch.
