The Internet stays coming through with savage jokes. Social media has reacted to an epic run-in between rappers Dave East and J. Cole by creating a hilarious “The Boondocks”-inspired meme.
J Cole and Dave East
Heading into the weekend, a must-see meme lit up social media comparing Cole and East to the game-changing social awareness cartoon. The Internet likened the East Coast rappers to the show’s Huey and Riley characters.
Heading into Thursday, rap star Drake hit up Cole’s Instagram page comments section with big love. Drizzy credited Jermaine’s two new records for keeping his poolside goals going Wednesday afternoon.
“This sh*t was ringing off this afternoon pool side I had it early #ColeWorld 💨💨” -Drake in J. Cole’s Instagram comments
Wait, There’s More
A few nights ago, Cole blessed hip-hop heads with some pure audio flames. After some initial teasing, Jermaine pressed the green light on dropping both new records. – “The Climb Back” and “Lion King on Ice.”
On Wednesday, July 22, J. Cole dropped two new tracks, “The Climb Back” and “Lion King on Ice,” off his forthcoming album The Fall Off. J. Cole produced “The Climb Back” solo, while he teamed up with T-Minus and Jetson for “Lion King on Ice.” Despite the fact that J. Cole released both tracks back to back, there’s no official release date yet for the album, as he tweeted, “taking my time, still finishing.” (Vulture)
Before You Go
Over the past two summers, Cole has stayed relatively low-key. Outside of appearing on a few guest features, Jermaine has stuck to staying out of the major music biz spotlight.
J. Cole teased The Fall Off on the final track of KOD, “1985,” which was subtitled “Intro to ‘The Fall Off.’” Many fans felt that J. Cole dissed Lil Pump and other young rappers on “1985,” so Cole sat down for an hour-long conversation with Lil Pump. Since releasing his last studio album KOD in April 2018, J. Cole has appeared as a guest on songs by Gang Starr, Young Thug, YBN Cordae, and Big K.R.I.T., and more. He also spearheaded the Dreamville compilation Revenge of The Dreamers III. The Grammy-nominated album featured Kendrick Lamar, Vince Staples, J.I.D, Young Nudy, DaBaby, EarthGang, Smino, T.I., and others. (Pitchfork)
