J. Cole recently released his album 4 Your Eyez Only, and now the rapper has dropped a new track that is not featured on the album, titled “High For Hours.”
The track features a verse that finds the rapper speaking on the time he was able to meet with President Barack Obama. During his meeting with Obama, J. Cole was able to speak with him about criminal justice reform, as well as the “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative that the president launched. J. Cole rapped in detail about what he said to Obama, saying that he asked if the president saw the struggles of his brothers in oppression, as well as questioning what the hold up was on making major changes. Cole did say despite having those questions, the president’s responses seemed sincere and he could tell the president cared. Listen above.
