Good news Dreamvillians, J. Cole is returning much sooner than you think. He released a slew of information that we have compiled just for you. First of all, his third full length album will be titled 2014 Forest Hills Drive, is officially being released on December 9th. The 13-track collection is also already available for preorder HERE, however, he has also decided that he is not releasing any singles or videos before the album drops. It’s an interesting strategy, and it will definitely pay off if the music is strong enough to back it up, which knowing Cole’s track record, he should have no problems with at all. It’s an exciting announcement, and we will keep you posted of any new developments. In the meantime, get ready for 2014 Forest HIlls Drive.
