“I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit / Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with.” -J.Cole


We're still a few days away from the release of J. Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive album (due December 9th), but its already causing quite a stir on social media.  A newly leaked track, "Fire Squad", contains numerous lyricals jabs and many of those jabs were towards white rappers. 

Jermaine (J) Cole comes for Macklemore, Eminem and Iggy Azalea as the top offenders who've taken Black culture and ran with it. He raps,

"History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes
Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows Same thing that my ni**a Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll
Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore"

And then there's this about Iggy

“While silly ni**as argue over who gon’ snatch the crown
Look around my ni**a, white people have snatched the sound
This year I’ll probably go to the awards dappered down
Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile.”


Listen to the controversial track about cultural appropriation below and decide where you stand...
