The Internet has no chill. A Utah hotel has fired an unexpected shot at rap star J. Cole and his new For Your Eyez Only album.
A Twitter post from the Hampton Inn in Sandy, Utah has directly trolled Cole’s newest solo offering.
Regardless of how listeners personally feel about Cole’s rhymes and his devoted fan base, the North Carolina rapper’s outlook on life and some of his fellow rappers makes him a polarizing figure. The Hampton Inn in Sandy, Utah took advantage of the popularity of Cole’s new album 4 Your Eyez Only to draw some attention to their establishment via a direct, digital slight at Cole. (Complex)
Despite the playful diss, Cole’s LP is expected to do monster numbers in its opening week.
Heading into the weekend, Dreamville unleashed the album’s credits across social media.
A recent album review on the must-hear effort suggested Cole may have a daughter.
A new review on iTunes of the highly-anticipated LP, which drops on Friday (Dec. 9), appears to confirm a long-gestating rumor about the Fayetteville-raised MC — that he is the proud father of a daughter. Reads the review, “the two-part suite ‘She’s Mine’ may be the most important songs he’s written, as Cole hovers over his daughter and finds himself overcome by a strange feeling: hope.” (BET)
