J. Cole’s partnership with HBO continues this year with a new documentary, J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only, A Dreamville Film. It marks the second special he’s made for the premium cable channel.
Co-directed by Cole and Scott Lazer, the film intersperses tracks from Cole’s latest album 4 Your Eyez Only with stories emerging out of Cole’s hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina, his father’s hometown of Jonesboro, Arkansas, as well as Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Atlanta, Georgia and Ferguson, Missouri (via EW).
Like J. Cole Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming, the first special Cole released on HBO in 2016, his new documentary special will provide greater context about the places, faces and issues that fed into his fourth album 4 Your Eyez Only. “So many of us are hurting and we’re confused and we’re angry,” a woman interviewed for the special tells cameras.
4 Your Eyez Only premieres April 15th at 10:00 pm ET.
