Surprise! J. Cole to Release '4 Your Eyez Only' Album on December 9

Two years to the day he released 2014 Forest Hills Drive, Jermaine will return with his fourth studio album.

On December 9, 2014, J. Cole surprised the hip-hop world by releasing 2014 Forest Hills Drive, an album that has since been famously certified double-Platinum without a single guest feature. 

24 months later, on the very same date, Cole is slated to release 4 Your Eyez Only, the long-awaited, long-overdue follow-up to Forest Hills Drive. The 10-track offering, which is currently available for pre-order on iTunes without song titles, will be released through Dreamville and Roc Nation.

Seven months ago, there were signs Cole might be recording new material, but nobody outside of Dreamville could confirm an imminent release. Now we're eight days away from a new full-length album, which comes right in time for the holidays.

While you anxiously await 4 Your Eyez Only, we recommend pressing play on "Can't Call It," Spillage Village's full version of Cole's "Jermaine's Interlude" from DJ Khaled's Major Key album.
