Video: J. Cole – ‘Apparently’

Fresh off the release of 2014 Forest Hills Drive, J. Cole drops a visual for the first release “Apparently,” which follows last week’s “Intro” clip. The Fayetteville MC stands in front of a projection screen, while reflecting on his childhood and his homecoming.

“This is my canvas, I’ma paint it how I want it,” raps Cole.

The album, which can be streamed here, is expected to sell 240-270k in its first week.

It has already earned praise from critics and his peers. “Wowwwww this album is a classic!!!!!!!!!” said Timbaland.

Tune in to “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Wednesday for a performance from Cole.
