On the back of his Road To Homecoming documentary on HBO, J. Cole has released the live album from his hometown performance – and it’s awesome.
Cole’s multi platinum album 2014 Forrest Hills Drive chronicles his journey from childhood (while living at 2014 Forrest Hills Drive, Fayetteville, NC) to superstardom. January 28th (Cole’s birthday) is the second track on the album with Cole rapping about his childhood memories, and the live version below gives the song a whole new energy.
With Cole signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, it’s probably no coincidence either that the second track off Jay Z’s fabled Black Album is “December 4th” – Hov’s own birthday.
If you like what you hear, be sure to check out the whole live album.
