J. Cole

J. Cole is already bouncing back after the release of his latest album with a new track in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Produced by Elite and Cam O’bi, “High For Hours” has Cole at his most contemplative, musing about religion, politics, and social unrest in a way that would make Dr. King proud. On top of that, he eyes revolution as a true means to an end, saying “The only real revolution happens right inside of you“.

It’s clear Cole has a lot more on his mind lately than what he put forth on 4 Your Eyez Only. The North Carolina rapper has expressed his thoughts on civil rights more than once before, and this one serves up some thought-provoking rhymes on a day fitting for such meditation. Listen to “High For Hours” below and let us know what you think!
