It’s clear by now that it’s no laughing matter when J. Cole steps in a booth. The Carolina-bred emcee touched on interracial relationships, politics, artistry and race in less than four minutes on the newly-released “Get Free ColeWorld”, a take on Major Lazer’s (Diplo) latest hit, “Get Free”.
“The words were too relevant to keep this in the stash,” Cole tweets.
“..she embarrassed now. On edge ‘cuz she gotta meet his parents now, ‘They’ll probably think I’m no good for ‘em. Too dark, too thick, too hood for ‘em.”
“I smell bullsh**, it must be an election year.”
“I’d rather make tracks where I bleed into it. The single’s only the look to sell these ni**as the book. I can only pray that one day you’ll read into it.”
“..and why they call this sh** a race? The agony of defeat..wish the elite could get a taste.”
Lyrically, this guy just does not disappoint. Roll out that sophomore project!
