J. Cole released a song called “Snow on tha Bluff” on Tuesday, June 16, and it’s caused a firestorm of controversy that involves Chance the Rapper and Noname, a female rapper and activist from Chicago.
On “Snow on tha Bluff,” Cole addressed the sweeping protests and rapped about reading through a woman’s social media timeline.
“N—–s be thinking I’m deep / Intelligent fooled by college degree / My IQ is average / 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 my n—–, she mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve / She mad at the celebrities, low key I’m assuming she talking ’bout me, / Now I ain’t no dummy to think I’m above criticism / So when I see something that’s valid, I listen / But s–t, it something about the queen tone that’s bothering me,” Cole rapped.
“Chance the Rapper willing to go to bat for Noname, Gives Kanye a pass for the Trump Fiasco…yeah ok,” a second person tweeted.
Before the “Coloring Book” rapper shared his feelings about “Snow on tha Bluff,” Cole responded to the backlash in several tweets.
