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.

Three cities. Thirty rappers. One track. The Rap Monument. Full track coming soon. We’ve already heard “bricks” (verses) from Pusha T, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Raekwon, Vado, Go Dreamer, Flatbush Zombies, and Meyhem Lauren. But today Noisey is dropping off perhaps their most controversial entry to the fold in Atlanta’s Young Thug. Quickly glancing over some online comments it’s clear that many don’t feel Thugger should be on The Rap Monument, but frankly it wouldn’t be a proper representation of the current hip-hop climate without a name like Young Thug in the mix. He’s made a huge splash in the rap game over the last year and not having him here would be a detriment. Whether you love him or hate him, peep Young Thug’s The Rap Monument brick along with A$ton Matthews after the jump.
