First, congratulations to J. Cole for scanning a million albums with his 2014 Forest Hills Drive project. Also, congrats on being the first rapper in 25 years to reach this feat without any guest appearances on the album. So with that said, this leads me to his newest video for his “G.O.M.D.” single. The video takes place during the slavery era, with Cole portraying a house slave (light-skin Blacks worked in the house, while dark-skin Blacks worked in the fields). He gets no respect from the field slaves, because he seems favored by their master. During dinner, Cole grabs the keys to the gun cabinet. This starts a rebellion from the slaves, who Cole leads into a takeover of the master’s home.

It’s that time of the year where you are bombarded with year end lists. And we here at The Illixer are no different. The year 2014 has had its ups and downs when it comes to Hip-Hop as well as R&B albums. So boys and girls, here is the Illuminati Roundtable’s list of the best Rap albums and R&B albums of 2014. And by the way if you have an opinion about the list: “I got a black box where suggestions go, but I don’t really give a f–k. It’s probably best you know;” (Well said Mr. Graham).
