J. Cole's 4 Your Eyez Only is less than 12 hours away, and late yesterday some intrepid Reddit folk discovered a detailed description. The since-pulled, iTunes-penned review—alleged review—has a closing line that goes, "The two-part suite 'She's Mine' may be the most important song he's written, as Cole hovers over his daughter and finds himself overcome by a strange feeling: hope."

Also promised: "settled" music with "jazz touches and strings, allowing the words to become the focus." Here's a screenshot, which promises that Cole's fourth album will be full of naked emotions and dealing with our fraught society:

We'll find out what Cole's got with the almost-definitely-guest-less 4 Your Eyez Only super soon. Till the record drops, relive this old-school Fuse interview:
