Jermaine Lamarr Cole also know as J.Cole is a hip-hop artist who came out with his fourth number one album called 4 Your Eyez Only on December 9,2016.

According to the Billboard website the album is guessed to be about J.Cole’s childhood friend, James McMillan Jr., who was involved in a shooting that was related to gang violence. Sadly James passed away at the age of 22.

Also, according to TheHoya.com, the tenth song on the album, 4 Your Eyez Only, is about a conversation between J.Cole and his friend James’ daughter that he left behind after he died. One of the lyrics during the conversation between J.Cole and his friends daughter J.Cole states “I got the strangest feeling your daddy gonna lose his life soon,and sadly If you’re listening now it must mean it’s true.”

The album is mostly trying to tell listeners about the world we live in with discrimination, police brutality, gang violence, and black youth. Lyrically the album is based on life, death, legacy and how Cole struggles with his mortality and what he will leave behind.

”I think the album is inspiring and tells a lot about what J.Cole’s perspective is on the world,” said Marlene, Fremont student.  Also when asked, what is your favorite song and why she replies with, “Deja Vu because it has a good beat.”

“I think the meaning of the album is about what kind of world we live in right.”

Some of the more popular songs from the album include: “Change”, “Deja Vu”, “Neighbors”, “Immortal”, and last but not least “4 Your Eyez Only”.
