'Snow on tha Bluff': J Cole drops politically charged track, surprised fans call him the GOAT
'Snow on tha Bluff' opens in an atmospheric tone with smooth jazzy guitar licks every few bars and begins to spit double-tempo to the music
North Carolina rapper, singer-songwriter J Cole has just dropped a new track, titled 'Snow On tha Bluff'. The new song came out of nowhere without being announced previously. The rapper didn't even drop any hints on his social media before releasing the song to streaming services, sending fans into a frenzy.
'Snow on tha Bluff' opens in an atmospheric tone with smooth jazzy guitar licks every few bars and begins to spit double-tempo to the music, "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 murder police" and "She mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve / She mad at the celebrities, low key I be thinkin she talking bout me."
Fans are already super hyped for the new song. Sharing a clip of herself speeding to untangle her earphones, one fan said on Twitter, "NEW COLE ALERT?? J. COLE JUST DROPPED A NEW SONG?!?! HOLD ON NOW." One fan described it as "amazing" as they highly recommended a listen. One fan commented, "Easily better than 90% of the hot 100" while another wrote, "King he snapped. (sic)"
When it came to Cole's rapping and lyrics, a fan wrote, "Yooo his flow so sick" and another said, "Bruh the lyrics of the song makes him the [goat]," describing the lyrics as "So effing deep" and added, "He said 'I ain't no dummy to think I'm above criticism so when I see something that's valid I listen.'" Other comments included, "The king is back...another platinum plaque" and "am screaming!" and "exactly what we needed. king s**t."
In November last year, during his headline performance at Day N Vegas music festival, Cole teased the title of a new album 'The Fall Off', with an expected release date for sometime this year. Perhaps the release of his new track hints that the rapper is warming up to a release of the LP. His last studio album 'KOD' was released in 2018. You can also listen to 'Snow on tha Bluff', which was produced by Cole and Wu10 via Spotify or over on Apple Music.
