J. Cole fans were pleasantly surprised to hear the announcement that 4 Your Eyez Only, the rapper’s fourth studio album, would be releasing next week, on Dec. 9. So far, the rollout began in earnest on Thursday night, when Cole shared a new documentary on Tidal, titled Eyez.
Directed by Scott Lazer and edited by Roberta Spitz, Eyez extends the idea from Cole’s Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming documentary series on HBO in giving fans an intimate look at what goes on during the recording process of an album. In Eyez, we learn that Cole in addition to rapping and producing, Cole has taken on an executive role by guiding engineers and various musicians (violinist, organist, trumpeter, and more). The beauty of Eyez is that we are all experiencing this moment of Cole’s life and enjoying his company together, which further supports his mission of putting his family, friends, and fans first. Here are 14 things we learned from Eyez, and if you haven’t watched the doc yet, you can do so here.
