J. Cole’s Forest Hills Drive opens up with the artist singing one question: Do you wanna, do you wanna be happy? And thanks to Cole, there are millions of fans getting that very emotion fulfilled.

What else is making fans happy? Getting a glimpse inside the rapper’s life, career and album rollout process with his new HBO documentary, J. Cole Forest Hills Drive: Homecoming. 

The first episode, titled F*ck Money, Spread Love, recently dropped and we got a chance to see the 30-year-old return home to Fayetteville, NC and hit up New York and London to promote his album, FHD. But aside from the standard promotional tour, Cole also stopped by a fan’s home for an exclusive listen of the LP.

“With the album, I looked at it like a story, almost like Lion King,” he says in the 33-minute clip. “I made the album like I was writing the soundtrack to a movie that only really existed in my mind.”

The first episode is one of a five-part mini-series leading up to Cole’s Homecoming concert on January 9 on HBO.
