Around here, we’ve been saying that J. Cole needs to drop another music video for 2014 Forest Hills Drive and today he does just that. At first I thought the visuals for “G.O.M.D.” were inspired by movies like 12 Years A Slave or Django Unchained, and maybe it was, but I think slavery just so happens to be the backdrop chosen.
The story is straightforward. J. Cole plays a house nigga on a slave plantation that later goes on to lead a slave rebellion. And that’s basically it. I didn’t see the video for “G.O.M.D.” going this way but I’m okay with it. Directed by Lawrence Lamont.
