The internet was right. J. Cole is releasing a new album December 9th called 2014 Forest Hills Drive as he takes you back to North Carolina, where it all started – hence the name of the album. The 7 minute video after the jump has him taking you back to his stomping grounds and kind of just reflecting on life.

This will be the emcee’s 3rd studio album, released by Dreamville/Roc Nation/Columbia Records, and you can pre-order it now. From what we can tell it’ll be at least 13 tracks.

We took the liberty of looking up the address on Google Maps in Fayettesville, North Carolina and it’s actually kind of surreal because in the street view, there’s a kid remincent of lil’ Jermaine walking up the street, you can see it below along with the trailer.

Pre-order: J. Cole – 2014 Forest Hill Drive (Album)

Snoop Dogg Teases Insane “Los Angeles vs. Everybody” Track Ft. Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre & More


No what !!

When Snoop Dogg first hinted to a “Los Angeles vs. Everybody” response to Eminem‘s “Detroit vs. Everybody” I got an ear to ear grin because this brings it back to what the hip hop/rap game is all about. Where the best in the game try and one up each other, East (Midwest) vs. West, showing it through bars rather than blood and robbery (which granted, is also what the game is all about).

Although not official or anything, Snoop took to Instagram and upladed this artwork, featuring himself, The Game, Tyler The Creator, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, YG, Problem, Nipsey Hussle, Crooked I, Kurupt and Dom Kennedy. F*cking massive.

This mini “phenomenon” reminds me almost of Kanye‘s “G.O.O.D. Fridays” from years ago, just raw bars on raw bars.

Hopefully this does happen, and more regions link up for a similar response. Chi Town, the 305, Brooklyn, the South… as a fan of hip hop music you have to be wishing for the same thing. Oh, and you can also expect another Detroit remix of this, since Trick Trick didn’t get an actual verse, he’s going to release it himself.
