J. Cole Announces '2014 Forest Hills Drive' LP
As 2014 nears its end, a handful of rap artists are scrambling to get new albums out. Among them is J. Cole, who has just announced his next LP.

Cole's fifth album, and the follow-up to last year's Born Sinner, is called 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The album's cover art is available above.

"What up? My new album is finished. It's called 2014 Forest Hills Drive and it's very special to me," Cole said in a statement. "It's available everywhere on 12/9. This time I'm releasing no singles, just the album. See you in 3 weeks. Thank you for the love and support."

As indicated in his statement, the album will be available on December 9 via Roc Nation. The album is available to pre-order now on iTunes, while a seven-minute trailer for the release is available below.
