J. Cole Raps Controversial Bill Cosby Lyric In New Freestyle
On Wednesday (May 12), Power 107’s L.A. Leakers radio show dropped a freestyle with the Dreamville Records founder over Souls of Mischief’s “’93’ Til Infinity.” In the rap, Cole spits from off the dome, offering a bar about Bill Cosby that didn’t rub listeners the right way.
“Or who they debatin’ is better/Let’s face it, he one of the greatest/No Bill Cosby shit, but if niggas is sleepin’, then fuck her/Most niggas don’t understand me/I don’t do the GRAMMYs, I be in my jammies on sofa/Most niggas don’t understand me,” he says.
Bill Cosby is currently incarcerated and serving three to 10 years behind bars for aggravated indecent assault. Cosby was accused of drugging and sexually assaulting 60 women. Given the actor/comedian’s reason for incarceration, fans hopped on social media to express their disappointment in the rapper’s bar.
“I thought J. Cole’s freestyle on the LA Leakers was pretty solid, outside of that one Cosby line that shouldn’t have made it past the first draft process,” one Twitter user wrote.
Cole’s latest freestyle comes a few days before the release of the rhymer’s next studio album The Off-Season. The LP is slated to drop on Friday (May 14). The Off-Season will presumably help usher in the next projects leading into J. Cole’s highly anticipated The Fall Off album, which he began teasing in 2018.
