J.Cole dropped a new track last night, out of the blue, with no prior warning and naturally, fans were excited!
We haven’t heard anything from him since 2019. Okay scratch that we actually heard him on his record label’s compilation album…Revenge of The Dreamers but a single from him…we were not expecting one anytime soon.
With everyone dropping music about what’s going on all over the world, new music from him meant we were going to get some nice conscious deep verses and fans were excited!
Well, the song dropped and everyone is not so happy which is weird cos the reactions are usually “JCole’s new song is fire” from his die hard fans vs “J.Cole is just hype” from Cole haters. It’s always two arguments but now it looks like several people have more to say about his new song.
The song, titled “Snow On Tha Bluff” addresses racism, Black Lives Matter, police brutality and more but with a different angle.
He talked about his struggle with activism and talked about how some people might not fully understand what activists keep going on about but Twitter is so sure he was throwing shots at a rapper called NoName.
Some have called out his verses as being misogyinistic and…people want him cancelled!
People are so sure that this line was referring to something a female rapper named No Name (who has been very vocal about the BLM movement) tweeted about rappers who have never tweeted about the Black Lives Matter movement to show their support.
And well, they think his song was a response to her because he said:
“There’s a young lady out there, she way smarter than me / I scrolled through her timeline in these wild times and I started to read / She mad at these crackers, she mad at these capitalists, mad at these murder police / She mad at my n***as, she mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve / She mad at the celebrities, low-key I be thinkin’ she talkin’ ’bout me,” Cole raps on the track.
He went on to add:
“But shit, it’s something about the queen tone that’s botherin’ me”
“Just ’cause you woke and I’m not, that shit ain’t no reason to talk like you better than me
How you gon’ lead, when you attackin’ the very same niggas that really do need the shit that you sayin’?
Instead of conveying you holier, come help get us up to speed”
There’s more but you have to go read the lyrics or listen to the song properly but yhup, this is what has people triggered
Now apparently, his tone is quite condescending because if he’s addressing the rapper, NoName, then surely, “that’s no way to talk about a woman and ugh this is so true that men are threatened by women’s intelligence” and also… why so triggered if she mentioned no names (pun intended!)
Well… his fans are having none of all the allegations being thrown at him:
Others went on to explain what the group of triggered fans are actually missing…
And to those who actually think the rapper was not speaking about the BLM movement, fans didn’t hesitate to talk about the fact that the rapper was not tweeting mostly because he was on the streets, taking part in the protests.
J. Cole has spoken tho and, he insisted that he still stands by what he said. He didn’t admit or deny that he was referring to NoName and just said it was his truth.
He also asked his fans to follow NoName and practically gave her fans for her work
In conclusion, J. Cole’s respsonse is: I said what I said!
