‘Friday Night Lights’ rapper J. Cole responded to criticism of his new song, ‘Snow on Tha Bluff,’ which addresses the ‘Black Lives Matter‘ movement, racial inequality, and police brutality.
As known, after rapper Noname criticized black rappers because of their silence on the Black Lives Matter case, J. Cole released the song “Snow on Tha Bluff” Tuesday night, and spoke of his struggle about raising voice while worrying about not being enough.
Through the song, J. Cole expressed his thoughts with lyrics as follows:
“My IQ is average,
There’s a young lady out there she way smarter than me,
She mad at celebrities,
Low key I be thinking she talking ‘bout me.”
The numerous music award-winning rapper continued:
“Now I ain’t no dummy to think I’m above criticism,
So when I see something that’s valid, I listen,
Something about the queen tone that’s bothering me.”
Then, the 35-year-old J. concluded his words:
“Why I feel faker than ‘Snow on Tha Bluff’?
Well, maybe cuz deep down I know I ain’t doing enough.”
After releasing the song, he continued to get backlashes. Then J. Cole took Twitter on June 17 and defended his latest work with the following words:
“I stand behind every word of the song that dropped last night.”
After that, he added:
Right or wrong I can’t say, but I can say it was honest.”
It seems that he will receive more and more backlashes over his song.
