With his new album 2014 Forest Hills Drive in stores now (stream it in full here) J. Cole appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night (Dec. 10th) to deliver an emotionally-charged performance of his track “Be Free.” The song, which Cole released back in August and doesn’t appear on his new album, is a tribute to Mike Brown and Eric Garner, two men who were killed in the hands of police. 2014 Forest Hills Drive is expected to sell 320-350k in its first week, but that isn’t even on J. Cole’s mind at the moment. “Album in stores now. 2014 Forest Hills Drive. No thank you on projections. Just did Letterman, I’ll never forget it. Thank you God,” he tweeted. Check out Cole’s performance on Letterman after the jump.

Sorry, no new material here. The highly reclusive Jay Electronica may not be dropping new music any time (though he promised… on many occasions) but he is starring in an upcoming film. The film in question, Into the Light, directed by Jason Goldwatch and produced by Mass Appeal, will be released in 2015 and is of the experimental variety. Meaning the plot synopsis isn’t quite clear, but what really is with Jay Elec nowadays? Watch the trailer for Into the Light after the jump.

J. Cole stopped by Harvard University today to drop some knowledge on a lecture hall full of Ivy Leaguers.  In somewhat of an open forum lecture, entitled “The Next Move: A Conversation with J. Cole,” the Roc Nation artist discussed his influences, his family’s support of his rap career, and how he rocked his first show at the age of 14.  This piece definitely gives us some insight on J. Cole, but it can really compare to the brilliance of Lil B’s NYU lecture.  Hit the jump for the full video.
