J. Cole - Snow On Tha Bluff (Noname Diss), Noname Responds To J Cole in Song 33 (J. Cole Diss), Best Rap Songs 2020/Most Popular Rap Songs 2020.
This is a full historical breakdown of the J. Cole & Noname beef with both responses.
J. Cole logged on to Twitter bright and early this morning to double down on his alleged Noname diss, but also to say that he honors and appreciates her. Make it make sense! Thirty-five-year-old Jermaine Cole’s new song “Snow on Tha Bluff” addresses the current protests against r*cism and police br*tality across the world and alludes to J. Cole’s own feelings of inadequacy surrounding activism.
But instead of just being up front about those insecurities, he spends over half of the song dragging an unnamed woman many assumed to be Noname, based on the tracks’s description of the woman’s tweets. On Twitter Wednesday morning, J. Cole said he stands behind “every word of the song that dropped last night.” “Some assume to know who the song is about,” he said in a thread. “That’s fine with me, it’s not my job to tell anybody what to think or feel about the work. I accept all conversation and criticisms. But let me use this moment to say this.
Follow @noname. I love and honor her as a leader in these times. She has done and is doing the reading and the listening and the learning on the path that she truly believes is the correct one for our people. Meanwhile a n*gga like me just be rapping.” He finishes by saying he’s not a leader, but appreciates Noname for “challenging” his beliefs. “We may not agree with each other but we gotta be gentle with each other,” he left with a peace sign, no petitions linked, no GoFundMes, no bail funds.
Noname appeared to respond to J.Cole’s ‘diss’ with her latest track, Song 33. It all kicked off earlier this week when the J.Cole dropped his surprise new single, Snow on Tha Bluff. In it, the North Carolina rapper discussed recent Black Lives Matter discourse as well as seeming to critique Noname and her social media presence. He can be heard spitting: ‘My IQ is average, there’s a young lady out there, she way smarter than me / I scrolled 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 m*rder police / She mad at my n****s, she mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve / She mad at the celebrities, lowkey I be thinkin’ she talkin’ ’bout me.’ And in response, Chicago rapper Noname asks ‘He really ’bout to write about me?’ in her Madlib-produced track, Song 33.
Hip-hop has arguably been the most polarizing genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe.
Old School “Hip-Hop” has music based prevalently on more sophisticated lyrics, stories, sampling & flows. Artists such as Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Eazy-E often rap about the struggles of growing up in a poor environment and the work they put in to get where they are today.
“New school” hip-hop has different types of lyrics and sampling became less popular. Rappers from today’s generation sing typically about girls, money, and cars they have. Some even sing about how they do drgs, drink alchl, and party which sets a bad example for some listeners.
Many people prefer Old School Hip-Hop, which do you prefer?
