Tracy Lamptey, Reporter

            Jermaine Cole, or as he is famously known as J.Cole, released his second album on Dec. 9.  

           4 Your Eyez Only, his newest album, consists of 10 songs in the following order: For Whom the Bell Tolls, Immortal, Deja Vu, Ville Mentality, She’s Mine Pt. 1, Change, Neighbors, Foldin Clothes, She’s Mine Pt.2 and 4 Eyez Only.

            His songs allow for fans to see the world through his eyes.  His fans also get a glimpse into his past and his perspective of world brutality.  

 

“Handcuffs keep huggin the wrists of my niggas

And I wish stuff was different here

But if I had a magic wand to make the evil disappear

That means that there would be no Santa Claus no more

To bring you Christmas cheer

Cause what he represents is really greed and the need

To purchase shit from corporations that make a killin’

Because they feed on the wallets of the poor

Who be knockin’ on the door, every Black Friday”

 

But he also sings about the love in his heart for his daughter.  In She’s Mine Pt.1,  J. Cole sings about when she was first born.

“I’ve fallen in love for the first time

I wanna cry and I ain’t even tryna fight it”

    J.Cole expresses wanting to live for her and portrays the love within his heart, and how he wants to be there for her.

“Don’t wanna die(I don’t wanna die no more)

Cause now you’re here”

    Throughout the song, J.Cole sings to his daughter about his life and how he enjoyed and feared a lot of things.   “And I just wanna be right by your side

On any night that you be crying baby

I dry your eyes, I’ll dry your eyes”
