J. Cole is celebrating the sixth anniversary of 2014 Forest Hills Drive with an accompanying music video for its track “Fire Squad.”

Helmed by BBGUN, the visual shows a young girl and an old man playing a game of chess. During the intense match, she warns her elder of men who call themselves kings because in reality, they only crave for the power and are cowards who are afraid of death. J. Cole refutes this idea throughout the song as he proclaims that he and everyone else wear the crown. “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.

Dreamville Records premiered the new visual and announced that they will be re-uploading several of J. Cole’s music videos that were previously deleted. “A bunch of @JColeNC videos got deleted way back and today were getting them all back up. And because it’s the anniversary #FHD heres the world premiere of the never before released video for ‘Fire Squad,’” the label tweeted. ”Happy Holidays!”

Watch J. Cole’s “Fire Squad” visual above and stay tuned for the release of his upcoming album The Fall Off.
