*J. Cole goes in on white artists who have appropriated (ripped off) their way into black culture on his new track, “Fire Squad.”
His new album, “2014 Forest Hill Drive,” comes out on Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014. And he’s already making headlines for the album’s lyrics.
For instance, “I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit / Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with.”
“History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes. Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows,” he rapped. “Same thing that my ni**a Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll. Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore.”
“While silly ni**as argue over who gon’ snatch the crown. Look around my ni**a, white people have snatched the sound,” he continued with his lyrics.
He added, “this year I’ll probably go to the awards dappered down. Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile.”
