J. Cole has apparently taken shots at Eminem, Macklemore, Justin Timberlake and Iggy Azalea for appropriating black culture on the leaked track Fire Squad from his upcoming album 2014 Forest Hills Drive. He had this to say:
“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,” raps Cole, who appeared on the remix to Timberlake’s “TKO.”
He also had some words for Iggy Azalea:
“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.”
He was also quick to add:
“I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit / Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with.”
Jermaine I don’t know about going at Eminem that may be a mistake, but that’s the nature of hip hop so we will see how this plays out. Cole’s new album drops December 9.
Whut say you?
