J. Cole celebrates the sixth anniversary of his album, 2014 Forest Hill Drive, by releasing the visuals for "Fire Squad."
For this video, Cole makes a foreign land his stage. Here the phrase "from the mouths of babes" is personified as a child warns her elder chess opponent the dangers of referring to oneself as the/a king. As fans know, Cole didn't heed this advice as he makes it clear throughout the track that he's the greatest rapper alive.
The video for "Fire Squad" comes after fans hoped Cole would continue the trend of releasing music on Dec. 9—both 2014 Forest Hill Drive and 4 Your Eyez Only were released on that day two years apart. Although they didn't get The Fall Off, Dreamville alluded to possibly more unreleased videos hitting the internet.
"A bunch of @JColeNC videos got deleted way back and today were getting them all back up," the tweet announcing the video's arrival reads. "And because it’s the anniversary #FHD heres the world premiere of the never before released video for ‘Fire Squad’ 🔥🔥🔥 Happy Holidays!"
In 2014, J. Cole gave Complex News a look into the childhood home that inspired 2014 Forrest Hills Drive, which you can check out here. And watch Cole's "Fire Squad" video above.
