J. Cole surprises fans on MLK Day with this impactful new record called "High For Hours."


Well look what we have here. After news surfaced last week that J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only album has already gone gold, the Dreamville rapper decides to come out nowhere in the early hours of Monday morning & liberate his first song of 2017 called “High For Hours.”

Released fittingly on MLK Day, the soulful, Cam O’Bi & Elite-produced cut finds Cole getting rather deep & tackling issues of oppression & the hypocrisy of America, while touching on his meeting with President Barack Obama in the process. Three verses in total, why thank you Jermaine.

Suggest you roll something up first and digest the deep & impactful lyrical wordplay that is “High For Hours.” Thoughts?

Quotable Lyrics:

I had a convo with the president, I paid to go and see him
Thinking bout the things I said I'd say when I would see him
Feeling nervous, sitting in a room full of white folks
Thinking about the black man plight, think I might choke, nope
Raised my hand and asked a man a question
'Does he see the struggles of his brother in oppression?
And if so, if you got all the power in the clout as the president
What's keeping you from helping niggas out?

- J. Cole
