J Cole was silent for most part of 2016 until he dropped his hit album “4 Your Eyez Only” before the year ended. Now, he has surprised us with a brand new track, titled “High for Hours.”
The track which was released on Martin Luther King Jr. Day is all about revolution, politics, and power. The first verse includes lines about religion, Osama Bin Laden, police brutality, and race. The second focuses on a conversation with President Barack Obama.
“He broke the issues down and showed me he was well aware,” raps Cole. “I got the vibe he was sincere and that the brother cared.” He added Obama’s message here: “Don’t stop fighting and don’t stop believing / You can make the world better for your kids before you leave it.”
With his third verse, Cole goes back to thoughts of revolution.
Cole always has plenty to say and uses his art to express himself. You can listen to the impactful song below:
