Noname has made an exceptionally quick turnaround response to J. Cole's "Snow on Tha Bluff," with her own dig, "Song 33." Sharing her new single on June 18th, the short song (which clocks in at a minute and nine seconds) doesn't pull the punches in bringing up the murder of 19 year old Oluwatoyin Salau, the growing number of missing black women and black people found hanging from trees.
Her "Song 33" response comes just two days after J. Cole mentioned her in his rap, however she clapped back saying “He really bout to write about me / When the world is in smokes?,” on "Song 33." She added, “When it’s people in trees?/When George begging for his mother saying he couldn’t breathe / You thought to write about me?”
"Little did I know all my reading would be a bother / It's trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer? / And this is what y'all receive?,"
Her fans responded exceptionally well to her response, even though it overall received mixed responses. How do you feel about J. Cole's stance and Noname's mention? Let us know in the comments below.
The real difference to me between Noname’s track vs Cole’s is, as expected, she’s demonstrating an awareness of the movement we’re in, in this moment. It actually just makes his song even more disappointing.
Whew. @noname said we have actual things to worry about like Black women being killed and many of us being SILENT. But I guess egos are hurt. That patriarchy is going to get us killed. https://t.co/ehg70p3ZzN
Shaq and Kobe had their differences, but when it came time to win the ring, they were unstopabble. With that said, it'd be dope to see a @noname and @JColeNC collab. They're both on the same team, just debating over whose approach is more effective.
