J. Cole has had himself quite a surprising week, especially for his diehard fans. After he felt a way about Noname calling him out for not speaking up, he decided to skip allllll the other things going on in the world to talk about her “tone.”
The internet has been giving him a hard a$$ time over all of it. Now, Noname has responded and she’s not pulling any punches.
As you can see above she asks a lot of the same questions we have for Cole. With all this going on this is what you want to talk about? Noname does more than a simple diss track, though. She’s naming Black women killed and standing up for Trans people. She got everyone to listen thinking it was a diss track, but it was really another call to action. Brilliant.
The catch here is Cole fans (Cole Minors? 2 Cole Scorpios?) are outraged, all up in their feelings over it all.
Hit the flip for the wildness.
“The Noname thing hits different cos I’m too familiar with that weird competition thing men do when they feel threatened by your intelligence. So they start calling you condescending and being passive aggressive”
“So NoName condemned J Cole for releasing a song at the wrong time and 48hours later she’s dropped a diss track on him,prolly her in the studio”
Let that hurt go…
And there you have it, folks.
“Me listening to song 33 on repeat, giving noname the streaming numbers she deserve”
“Black men making noname their sworn enemy now has me crying wasn’t yall just BEGGING for “conscious” female rappers instead of the Cardis and Megs??? Oh I see it’s oochie wally”
“Imagine daring to cross Noname and ending up getting murdered over a one minute Madlib beat”
““Noname took the L on this one, bruh.””
“Throwing out a bit of solidarity with
Red heart bc I can definitely relate to men attempting to cut younger women down to size when they feel intimidated by our intelligence.”
“Noname drops a 1:09 second of a song full of hypocrisy, proving she and the rest of you missed the whole message and point of J.Cole’s song and y’all praise her?… End 2020 now”
And my tears dry on their owwwwwwwnnnnn
“so i hadn’t fully looked into the whole noname and jcole discussion but this man basically upset she holding the community accountable??”
““It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer.”….more allies within the community like this. Using a moment to acknowledge what’s going on inside it.”
““I SAW A DEMON ON MY SHOULDER, IT’S LOOKING LIKE PATRIARCHY”
“BUT N**** IN THE BACK QUIET AS A CHURCH MOUSE”
“WHEN GEORGE WAS BEGGIN’ FOR HIS MOTHER SAYING HE CAN’T BREATHE…YOU THOUGHT TO WRITE ABOUT ME?”
said lemme finish you expeditiously”
