Following the release of The Off-Season on Friday (May 14), J. Cole comes through with the first music video from the album. On Monday (May 17), Cole delivered the video for “a m a r i,” the second track on the 12-song album.
Directed by Mez, the video features the North Carolina MC in different settings. From cuts of him remotely flying a helicopter to watching his old school burn, and flexing his gold and platinum plaques, the direction brings around both dramatic and surreal vibes.
