4 Your Eyez Only

Finally, A rapper that actually did his homework!!

 

One of the most inspiring lyricist and producers have blessed us Rap Enthusiasts with yet another astounding album. 10 tracks of pure, uniquely made, libretto and melody; alongside a 40‑minute documentary called “Eyez” which showcase two additional songs in the film.

 

Let’s give Cole, our young talented rapper; a round of applause for not succumbing to the superficial, unmoving blahb that these other “so called rappers” can’t seem to move on from [bling, booty, & automobiles.] Let us appreciate the conversation Cole is having with us. He addresses the issues of social injustices in America, the Black Lives Matter Movement & inspiringly. The internal responsibility of what fatherhood feels like.

 

The album is highly influenced by jazz instrumentals and live instrumentation such as the horn, the trumpet, string arrangements, live bass and guitar.

 

There is nothing like listening to an album where the lyrics and it’s melody have woven themselves effortlessly into a story that’ll remain with its listeners for decades to come.

 

“You’re probably grown now so this song’ll hit you. If you’re hearing this unfortunately means I’m no longer with you in the physical, not even sure if I believe in God. But because you still alive he got me praying that the spiritual is real. So I can be apart of you still. My pops was killed too, so I know how parts of you feels. Maybe you hate me, maybe you miss me, maybe you spite me. Life goes in circles. Maybe you’ll date a nigga just like me.”

 

The album is uniquely told through another person’s point of view. Nevertheless, the conversation had touches on the familial politics of father and daughter in his last song on the album 4 Your Eyez Only.

 

“Get my weight on the block, keep watch for the cops. God they love to serve a nigga three hots and a cot. Nowadays crime pays like a part-time job.”

 

From the song Immortal, these lyrics correlate with the social and racial injustices America faces every day; especially in its most recent years.

 

“Please God, I want to go to heaven. As if He spiteful like them white folks that control the jail. See I believe if God is real he’d never judge a man because he knows us all, therefore he would understand.”

 

From the song Change, Cole taps into the transition of once being young and afraid of dying to finding his own voice and growing into a conscious, self made adult. #maturity
