J. Cole is back it at it with another album on the way entitled 2014 Forest Hills Drive. It seems like he is going grass roots with this project as there’s been no big marketing around the project. At this point in his career, I don’t think its needed as the intro video he just released has already hit a million views in just a few days. Once you watch it, you’ll see why. It’s simple, but the message is strong and I’m definitely excited to see how this album shapes up.
2014 Forest Hills Drive is out everywhere tomorrow December 9th, 2014.

ATL rapper Rome Fortune has been buzzing under the radar with mixtapes and collaborations with ILOVEMAKKONEN and OG Maco. His latest single “Juice”, produced by Childish Major, is probably one of my favorites by him in a while. Check it out.
90’s r&b-esque songstress, Rochelle Jordan, has been buzzing underground for a few years. Her sound reminds me of Aaliyah, and Jordan does her justice. Her new album, 1021, is one of those projects that you can play from beginning to end, and is definitely worth buying. Stream it now and head over to her her soundcloud now to purchase the album.

Coldplay’s sixth studio album Ghost Stories isn’t even cold off the presses and the band is already working on another. The new project will be A Head Full of Dreams and says that it will be “a final chapter”. I’m not sure if that means the band is retiring but I hope that’s not the case. Watch the full interview they had with BBC on the album below.
Yuna releases a video to her soulful single (same sample Drake uses in his track 0-100) “Broke Her”. It’s crazy how different two songs can sound sampling the same track, but Yuna definitely did her thing.
