On the sixth anniversary of his third album 2014 Forest Hills Drive, J. Cole delivered a gift to his fans: the music video for "Fire Squad."
In the BBGUN-directed visual, which was shot in Kingston, Jamaica, a little girl faces off in an intense chess game with an elderly opponent and cautions him of any man who crowns himself a king "because deep down, he clings to the need for power." But Cole (real name Jermaine Lamarr Cole) doesn't cling to said power; he owns it fearlessly. "We all kings/ Kings of ourselves first and foremost/ While the people debate who's the king of this rap game/ Here comes lil' ol' Jermaine," he raps in the outro.
His Dreamville Records announced on Twitter that it's re-uploading many of the North Carolina MC's old music videos after they were previously deleted. "And because it's the anniversary #FHD here's the world premiere of the never before released video for 'Fire Squad,'" Dreamville's official account wrote.
