4 Your Eyez Only - J. Cole
4 Your Eyez Only

4 Your Eyez Only is the fourth studio album by J. Cole. The album unexpectedly made it to iTunes for pre-order on December 1, 2016. The project would be officially released December 9, 2016—the two-year anniversary of the release of Cole’s multi-platinum album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The album’s title references the classic rap album All Eyez On Me by 2Pac. Both albums mark each respective artists' fourth studio album. The album tells the story of Cole’s slain friend given the pseudonym James McMillian Jr, as he goes from selling crack, to falling in love and starting a family. Following James' death on “Change,” the titular final track reveals that almost the entire album is a tape made by James to tell his story to his daughter after he’s gone. On January 11, 2017, 4YEO was certified Gold by RIAA. On April 7, 2017, the album was officially certified platinum—for the second time with no credited features.
