Here we go again: It appears J. Cole might close out yet another year with a surprise album. A new album, 4 Your Eyez Only, has popped up for pre-order on iTunes with an expected release date of December 9, two years to the day that J. Cole last surprise-dropped an album. It’ll reportedly have ten tracks, but that’s the only detail we know so far; a representative for J. Cole could neither confirm nor deny the album’s existence to Vulture. 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive famously went platinum with no features (you know the meme) and became the biggest-selling rap album of that year in just under a month. In the ultimate troll, this album will have ten songs all featuring Kendrick Lamar and will go diamond. You heard it here first.
