It’s Official people. J Cole will be releasing his third album “2014 forrest hills drive” in a little over three weeks. The album went for pre-order on iTunes on Sunday night with a release date of December 9. The follow-up to last year’s Born Sinner features 13 tracks, but the titles have yet to be revealed.
2014 Forest Hills Drive is the address of Cole’s childhood home in Fayetteville, North Carolina, which he purchased in June of this year for $121,000. He sent out a letter to his neighbors inviting them to a listening session on November 29 and 30.
He also released a trailer in which he returns to Fayetteville and visits his old stomping grounds including his high school and the local skating ring. He reminisces on happier times in the seven-minute clip, which includes home footage of him as a child.
