J. Cole revisits last years 4 Your Eyez Only and drops the visuals for “Neighbors” which is one of the standout tracks off the album. The track was inspired by real life SWAT team raid that occurred at Cole’s North Carolina studio because one of the neighbors called the cops and said they were selling drugs out of the house, of course, they found nothing. Last year during an interview with Complex Cole’s producer Elite explained how it all went down.
“There was a huge investigation, like a million-dollar investigation.” “They flew helicopters over, sent an entire SWAT team armed with weapons, broke down the door and searched the whole house.”
The footage of the raid is used as the official video and it originally appeared on Cole’s HBO documentary. Check out the short clip below.
