J. Cole’s Album ‘2014 Forest Hills Drive’ Leaks
Just days before the official release of J. Cole's highly anticipated third studio album 2014 Forest Hills Drive, the project sprung an unexpected leak. One track in particular has got media and fans in a frenzy. The North Carolina native made a controversial track called "Fire Squad" where he addresses and accuses white artists (particularly those in hip-hop and r&b) of robbing black culture. The socially conscious rapper didn't keep the lyrics subliminal. J. Cole called out some of music's top selling caucasian artists including Macklemore, Justin Timberlake, and even hip-hop veteran Eminem.
"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 n---a Elvis did with rock and roll/ Justin Timberlake, Eminem and then Macklemore."
J. Cole went on to rap, "While silly n---as argue over who gon' snatch the crown/ Look around, my n---a, white people have snatched the sound/ This year I'll probably go to the awards dapper down/ Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile," he continues. "I'm just playing, but all good jokes contain true shit."
Iggy Azalea has received a lot of negative attention ever since she first stepped on the scene. Hip-hop legends such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem have both taken shots at the Australian bombshell. Does Cole have a point?
