J. Cole Releases Tracklisting to ‘2014 Forest Hills Drive’
As J. Cole prepares to release his third album '2014 Forest Hills Drive,' the Roc Nation rapper has unveiled the project's tracklisting.
The collection boasts 13 songs and no guest appearances. Among the titles on the LP include 'January 28,' which is his birthday, 'No Role Modelz' and '03 Adolescence.'
As we previously reported, '2014 Forest Hills Drive' refers to the address of Cole's childhood home in Fayetteville, N.C. The rapper bought the home back in June for $121,000 when it was in foreclosure.
“It was validation, it was vindication for them foreclosing this place [on] my mom, and it was also a symbol for me like I know what’s important. You can’t run from home," he told Complex on why he purchased the property.
Cole says that Fayetteville is one of the places in the world where he feels most comfortable. “When I’m home, I’m either stopping through to visit or I’m doing something for the [Dreamville] Foundation,” he says. “I might get an extra day to see friends and family but then it’s off to the next thing. I’ve never been there long enough to feel comfortable and think, ‘This is home,’ not until I was home doing a cover shoot for the album.”
A couple weeks ago, the 'Born Sinner' creator treated one fan in Dallas to a private listening session of his album. Twitter user Dalia was the first person to hear the project and is now promoting it heavily on her timeline.
As of right now, there is no plans to release an advance single or music video from the album, which drops on Dec. 9. The collection is now available for pre-order on iTunes.
