Loved ones: We've got the rapper J. Cole's recent bomb dropping interview w/Angie Martinez and is impassioned performance on David Letterman's show on repeat over here!!!
What this rhyme fighter is talking about w/his music,...that's what the Brothers are talking about w/this ice cream!
"Cole was asked what changes he would like to see happen in society. His response included a reflection on America’s capitalistic economic system.
From Angie Martinez show:
“It’s an ‘every man for himself mentality.’ It’s a ‘I gotta be on top. For me to be on top, I gotta have a bottom,'” added Cole. “I don’t know the alternative. I don’t even know if it exists. I don’t think we’ve evolved to something that exists yet, but capitalism is just paid slavery. It’s the same set-up as slavery. The only difference was slaves weren’t getting paid, but it’s the same set-up. I own this plantation. You are at the bottom. I got some managers right here that oversee the field.”
According to Cole, that system does not work anymore. In his opinion, it is a selfish way of thinking that does not benefit the majority of the people. Cole also took issue with the entertainment business, the media, and other industries for putting profits over the well-being of the population."
And the Brother dropped some socially conscious science w/"Be Free" on David Letterman's show a few days prior!
J. Cole, unsheathing the true positive power of rap and hip-hop!!!
Cop this cat's album, family!!!
