J Cole talks '2014 Forest Hills Drive' in a brand new interview.
J Cole has opened up about the meaning behind his '2014 Forest Hills Drive' track 'Love Yourz.'
The Roc Nation rapper revealed that more so than any other track on the album, 'Love Yourz' sums up the entire album, which was heavily praised after its surprise release at the end of last year.
"When I was young, I thought that success was all I needed" Cole said in an interview on PBS. "That was going to bring the happiness. Buying my mom a house, the fame, the accolades having people say 'Yo, you really are the best in the game.' I thought those things would bring the happiness. Then when those things came, the happiness wasn’t there."
This May J Cole will head to the UK for his 'Forest Hills Drive Tour.' Joined by Jhené Aiko and Pusha T, Cole will perform in Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London.
