Fan Theory About J. Cole's "4 Your Eyez Only" LP Reveals the Intricate Plot
The fan explained that the North Carolina rapper is playing the character of a drug dealer attempting to go to the right.
J. Cole's latest album, 4 Your Eyez Only has enjoyed the necessary amount of fanfare expected of the beloved North Carolina rapper. A fan of the theory, however, reveals a possible plot device that Cole was playing the character of a drug dealer who falls in love with and you try to change your life for your daughter.
The fan theory has been identified and reproduced by HotNewHipHop without linking to the source, but it seems that there is some measurable credibility to the theory if the fan comments are to be believed.
"Cole is rapping to his daughter by saying: I'm sorry, but if you're listening to this album I'm dead the life in the streets got to me," writes the fan.
Continued with "The album is not directly about J. Cole. It is your friend. J. Cole wasn't in the street drug trafficking. He came out. Your friend is the one in the last rap song to his own daughter. Then, in the last verse of the last song, J Cole only appears and talks to his friends to his daughter himself. He tells her that his dad died his life on the streets, but it was still a good person."
Of course, J. Cole's real life does not mirror any protagonist angle present in the fan theory. The Fayetteville native is a graduate of st John's University in New York city, while embarking on a promising career that led to his eventual signing with Roc Nation, and the creation of his Dreamville imprint.
