Actively trying to ruin people's end of year round ups.

Yesterday was a busy day for rapper J.Cole. His third studio album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive dropped via his Interscope label imprint, Dreamville, as did his music video for eleventh track, "Apparently".

In the video, J. Cole can be seen rapping in front of a projection of images from his youth. Cole laments allowing his mother's home to be foreclosed on during his time in college and tackles other tough topics on the lead single.

The complex use of colours, shadows, and dark light make for an interesting first look at the rest of the record and certainly sets the tone of 2014 Forest Hills Drive.

Fans of the rapper have already begun to show their support for the new record. 

Like people who probably wanted to take a class in J.Cole this semester 

Or people who wanted to see 2014 Forest Hills Drive at the Louvre 

And people who thought the record was hip hop’s Hail Mary of 2014. 

Catch J. Cole’s video for ‘”Apparently” below to see just how much J.Cole's new record is ruining album of the year lists everywhere.
