Video: Chance The Rapper & J. Cole Debut “Thotty”

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Back in March, Chance swung through Tony Touch’s Shade 45 show and debuted an untitled cut that featured a voice that sounded an awful lot like J.Cole. The other night in Chicago, Chance and Cole debuted the full song live for a crowd at the University of Illinois’s Spark in the Park music festival. Hopefully a CDQ studio version soon come.

While in Ferguson, MO for the ongoing protests against the shooting of Mike Brown, J.Cole gave a reluctant interview to Complex News. He explained how he feels about the continued slaughter of young Black men in America, how this Deadspin piece and the VICE live feed inspired him to travel to the small town and why he flew 12 of his friends down with him to experience the unrest.

J. Cole – Be Free

A message from Cole:

There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It’s so easy to try to save the world when you’re in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. Nigga need a job. Nigga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a fuck if it’s by police or peers. This shit is not normal. I made a song. This is how we feel.

Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free
