J. Cole – Fire Squad (Eminem, Macklemore & Iggy Azalea Diss)

December 3, 2014 2

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?

Listen
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?

    I don’t think that he is personally attacking them for what they are doing by making hip hop music. he’s just pointing out the fact that because these artist are white they are more marketable. I can admit that he did fire a shot, whether you consider it a boom or an assistant strike doesn’t matter. The fact is most what he said was true. Macklemore won a grammy for the best hip hop album and admitted that kendrick lamar should have won with Good Kid Bad City. Iggy’s album wasn’t all that good and she most likely win a grammy sadly. While, justin timberlake is a great entertainer, his pop to hip hop/ R&B… which since he can dance and sing he can pull it off. Now we get to my disagreement with mister cole… Although Eminem has admitted himself if he was black he wouldn’t be as big as, because he would just be another black rapper. But he grew up in Detroit in one of the poorest areas; he could very well be blacker than Cole. beyond that Eminem has made a opened a door for young white kid to open their mind to hip hop. Tupac said himself that he love his white fans because if they can relate his music or in eminem’s prospective hip hop then thats another person that will give a black person a job, because if they can relate to hip hop they can empathize with our struggle with out walking in our shoes. Ok… Im off my box… back to the point.J Cole is making the point that just like with the east west coast beef, being king in this game is separating the masses instead of bring everyone together to get money. Of course everyone thinks they, but while black people fight over the crown white people are walking away with it… ie the grammy!
