“4 Your Eyez Only” by J. Cole
The fourth studio album of artist J. Cole, “4 Your Eyez Only,” discusses the trials and tribulations of a young black man growing up in today’s society. With diverse instrumentals, ranging from heavy bass induced back beats to haunting orchestras, listeners are captivated by the imagery and exposed to the perspective of J. Cole as a young black individual in today’s world. Unlike the albums of other artists within the genre, “4 Your Eyez Only” focuses on the struggles of life rather than materialistic values such as partying and money. With a somber tone throughout, showcased in songs like “Immortal” and “She’s Mine Part 1,” it is easy to understand the mature and demure tone without even listen to the words.
