If you listened to J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive front to back, which should be just about everybody at this point, you’ll remember the credits at the end of Note To Self. Cole shouts out NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. for giving him some seemingly life altering advice. As we heard it many of us were thinking “yo that’s crazy, I didn’t know Cole and Dale even fucked with each other like that.”, before Cole went on to reveal he was completely bullshitting, and said that they had never even met. Well, that’s changed as the duo cover ESPN’s latest issue together. Read what Cole had to say about the shoutout, and Dale’s reaction as well after the jump.

We gave you our top mixtapes and top albums of 2014, but now it’s time to get down to the individual songs. It took us a while to agree on 25 songs, as it’s always the hardest list to make every year. We’ve compiled what we believe to be both the best/biggest songs of the year. Check out the list after the jump, and let us know why you love or hate it in the comment section.
We brought you our Top Mixtapes of 2014 a few days ago, now it’s time to touch on the year’s best albums. It was surely a down year as far as qaulity projects were concerned — especially after the monster 2013 year that we had. We still managed to come up with 10 that we were comfortable with calling the best of a down year, so continue below and let us know what you think in the comments.
The album just came out today, and this is the 2nd video we’ve got from it. Go cop that 2014 Forest Hills Drive.
J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive is in stores today. That means we get an album stream. Cole dropped this one on short notice, without a single, and without much promotion. If you like what you hear, I urge you to go out and cop this in stores, or on iTunes, and demonstrate to artists that good music is what sells. Without any further ado, give it a listen after the jump.
J. Cole’s new album 2014 Forest Hills Drive will be dropping on December 9th, but here’s a new joint from the LP which you can check out below. This track shows Cole in a more aggressive manner than we’re used to seeing him, even naming dropping the likes of Eminem, Iggy Azalea, Justin Timberlake, and Macklemore.
This year I’ll probably go to the awards dappered down, watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile / I’m just playing, but all good jokes contain true shit…the same rope you climb up on, they hang you with.
Jessie Ware gets J. Cole to hop on the remix to “Kind Of… Sometimes… Maybe”. Cole has been killing the remix verses lately.
