Well, well,well. J. Cole has come out firing with his upcoming project. Using a marketing scheme many shy from in today’s music age, J. Cole had plans of dropping his new album with little promotion and no previously released singles. That all changed today.
Earlier today, J.Cole’s upcoming album “2014 Forest Hills Drive” hit the internet and with it came the release of a new J. Cole record entitled “Fire Squad”. On this new record, it appears Jermaine is bringing light to the fact that like Rock & Roll in the 1950s and 60s was highjacked by different cultures, rap is walk down that same path with white artist such as Eminem, Macklemore and Iggy Azalea being at the forefront of mainstream hip-hop.
Check out the lyrics to J.Cole’s “Fire Squad” below and listen to the single above and leave your thoughts on J.cole’s new single below in our comment section. Does Cole have a valid point or it he going overboard?
History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes
Same way that these rappers always bite each others flows
Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with Rock n Roll
Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore
While silly niggas argue over who gone snatch the crown
Look around my nigga white people have snatched the sound
This year I’ll prolly go to the awards dappered down
Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile
I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit
Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with
But not Jermaine, my aim too sick
I bang nigga, I came to bring the pain my brain too quick
You see how I maneuver this game, I ain’t stupid
I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid
And break the chains and change minds, one verse at a time
And claim too sick. And fuck it, if the shoe fits
Who’s the king?
