J. Cole’s 4 Your Eyez Only album isn’t even 24 hours old and, as expected, fans have already placed it in the Top 10 rap albums — of all time. Wait, what?
J. Cole fans have been called a lot of things, and while music is a subjective entity and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, jumping completely out of the window with proclamations of greatness never helped anyone to be taken seriously.
Case in point: these reactions to the 4 Your Eyez Only from J. Cole fans, many of which were formed before people had given the album a complete spin. [Editor’s Note: I saw the same thing happen with Tha Carter III and we all know how that album has held up.]

That’s all it takes, huh?
J.Cole went from rapping about losing his virginity to taking care of his pregnant wife in Foldin Clothes. J.Cole is growing up after all.
