Many artists have been inspired by the Black Lives Matter protests sweeping the globe. What began as a response to the death of George Floyd has turned into a revolutionary movement that has ignited political and social change through the United States, and this is just the inception of what's expected to be unprecedented reform of American law. During the recent protests, J. Cole could be seen marching alongside thousands of others who were standing solidarity against systematic racism and police brutality, and it looks as if he's been inspired by recent events because he just shared a surprise single titled "Snow On Tha Bluff."
The song borrows its title from the 2011 reality-drama documentary-style film of the same name. In true J. Cole fashion, he spins lyrical tales of empowerment and change in a way that seems as if he's giving listeners a peek into the diary of his innermost thoughts. Stream "Snow on Tha Bluff" by J. Cole and let us know what you think.
N*ggas be thinking I'm deep
Intelligent, fooled by my college degree
My IQ is average
There's a young lady out there she's smarter than me
I scroll through her timeline in these wild times
And I started to read
She mad at these crackers, she mad at these capitalists
Mad at these murder police
She mad at my n*ggas, she mad at our ignorance
She wear her heart on her sleeve
