apparently

apparently

Apparently is an adverb meaning «evidently» or «obviously.» After his sixth hot dog, you might say to your friend, «Well! Apparently somebody was hungry!»

While apparently can mean «plainly» — like, duh — it can also mean «seemingly,» which is almost «evidently» or «obviously,» but not quite. There’s a certain amount of guessing involved, based on appearances. The park ranger who shows up in the morning to examine the path of destruction through your campsite might say that it was «apparently the work of a hungry bear,» not because he’s totally sure, but because it definitely looks like something the bears around here would do.

About “Apparently”

Closing in on the final tracks of the 2020 Forest Hills Drive project, Cole reflects on the decisions he’s made in life and tries to make them right, now knowing how much people believe in him and look up to him. He expresses gratitude towards his girlfriend and his mother, apologizing to his mom and recognizing that his girl believes in him.

The second verse isn’t quite as nostalgic. Cole switches tones and shows off, using wordplay. He brags about his rap skills, possibly showing he hasn’t fully grasped everything he needs to know in life, but it’s starting to come together before the final track. Cole plays with two sides of his own narrative—at first, appreciating and recognizing the people that helped him succeed, and then, showing off the very skills that got him to where he is today.

This song was nominated for a Grammy in 2020, for Best Rap Performance.

The video debuted the same day as the album’s release:

Where does this fit in the narrative of the story?

J. Cole expresses his motivation, which required him to leave home but rewarded him with the ability to provide for his family.
