J. Cole – Snow On Tha Bluff (Official Audio)

Snow On Tha Bluff: https://JCole.lnk.to/SnowOnThaBluff
Produced by J. Cole & Wu10

Niggas be thinkin I’m deep/intelligent, fooled by college degree
My IQ is average, there’s a young lady out there she way smarter than me
I scrolled through her timeline in these wild times and I started to read
She mad at these crackers, she mad at these capitalists, mad at these murder police,
She mad at my niggas, she mad at our ignorance, she wear her heart on her sleeve
She mad at the celebrities, low key I be thinkin she talking bout me
Now I ain’t no dummy to think I’m above criticism so when I see something that’s valid I listen
But Shit, its something about the queen tone that’s bothering me
She strike me as somebody blessed enough to grow up in conscious environment
With parents that know bout the struggle for liberation and in turn they provided with
A perspective and awareness of the system and unfairness that afflicts em
And the clearest understanding of what we gotta do to get free,
And the frustration the fills her words seems to come from the fact that most people don’t see
just cuz you woke and I’m not, that shit ain’t no reason to talk like you better than me
How you gon lead, when you attacking the very same niggas that really do need
The shit that you saying? instead of conveying you holier come help get us up to speed
Shit it’s a reason it took like 200 years for our ancestors just to get freed
These shackles be lockin the mental way more than physical, I look at freedom like trees
Can’t grow a forest like overnight, hit the ghetto and slowly start planting your seeds
Fuck is the point of you preaching your message to those that already believe what you believe?
I’m on some “fuck a retweet”, most people is sheep,
You got all the answers but how you gon reach?
If I could make one more suggestion respectfully I would say it’s more effective to treat
People like children, understanding the time and love and patience that’s needed to grow,
This change is inevitable but ain’t none of us seen this before
Therefore we just gotta learn everything as we go,
I struggle with thoughts on the daily
Feel like a slave that somehow done saved enough coins to buy his way up outta slavery
Thinking just maybe, in my pursuit to make life so much better for me and my babies
I done betrayed the very same people that look at me like I’m some kind of a hero
Because of the zeros that’s next to the commas, but look here I promise I’m not who you think
Ran into this nigga outside of the store yesterday he said something that had me like “wait”,
He was like “Cole, preciate what you been doin My nigga, that’s real” but damn, why I feel faker Than snow on the bluff?
well maybe cuz deep down I know I ain’t doing enough,

The sun is shining today
The sun is shining today
The sun is shining today

Can you walk with me? I hope we’ll find
the reason why we often sob. Go on cry.

Painful memories fuck up the vibe
though I be trying to let the time heal my mind.

I was once a child, I’ve gotten older
Still, I know I’m just a boy in Gods eyes.

Fill me up with wisdom and some courage,
plus endurance to survive help mine thrive

      @William Lion it was the blackman who sold the blackman therefor it was your own people who sold you guys. Not every man could afford slaves slaves were not treated in the way everyone thinks….you don’t beat your work smh. By the way every Nationality was once a slave

    • G M says:

      @Bart Simpson lol u got like 4 different right wing racist talking points oops I mean excuses….just stop at the shit was wrong

    • Nomady 402 says:

      @Bart Simpson Actually from what I know, what would usually happen would be that captives from other lands on the continent would be sold as slaves. Africans are not just only one community or group just like europe isnt just one big community, its important to know this because when you just say black man you’re forgetting that race isnt the only thing that plays into a persons identity. Those africans who sold slaves at the time would have viewed it just like Germany would view it if they sold slaves to italy.

    • Nomady 402 says:

      @Bart Simpson And for your second point, I will admit I have not personally looked into it. But I have heard enough and seen enough to know that it was dehumanizing and wrong. You yourself said “…. you don tbeat your own WORK” from that sentence itself you can see just how bad this practice was.
      And for the third and final point, again I cannot confirm or deny its validity. But it shouldn’t matter anyways because the most infamous case of slavery in recent history has been of Caucasians enslaving black Americans. So of course it is the one most often and remembered. It is also still remembered today because(this is where I might lose some people) black still feel the effects.

  6. Saint Agatha says:

    Why does it feel like Cole the only Rapper nowadays that makes sense when he raps, and actually makes a point in his songs, try to get us to help change the world get out their and do something about whats happening. (We need more Coles)

    • Thomas Carter says:

    • FraggleRockz says:

      Aht aht you will not low key disrespect my Kendrick…Cole is not the only..

    • Young freddy says:

      Nah Logic, joey badass, jid, joyner,cordae are all very talented new gen rappers..

    • Joseph.mallon.05 says:

      @Wahid Rashidov kendrick raps about his troubles and his experiences in and getting out of life in Compton. To me i would rather listen to his story than what Cole raps about. Kendrick ain’ t egotistical like other rappers who rap about themselves and how much they make. Kendrick humble and promotes a good message about getting out the hood and doesn’t glorify gang life. Cole for the soul and K dot for the brain. Both great i just prefer how Kendrick portrays his story.

  9. Banksquiat 313 says:

  14. Rakia Withers says:

    I’m here to say you are doing more than enough, you helped me get through a tough point in my life , after my stroke I just wanted to sit around and do nothing but one of your quotes helped me “No such thing as a life that’s better than yours “, at that point I got up and was determined to do better. Thank you !!!

  15. AKrutto says:

  16. Jerszn says:

    “People like children, understanding the time and love and patience that’s needed to grow.” 🗣️💯

  17. TorBangz Smi says:

    I am a fan of J.cole he has been rapping and speaking on injustices and marching in protests since the beggining of his career. What I dont understand is what do ppl want from him. They upset when he dont tweet then they become more upset because of this song. He is not Martin Luther King nor is he Malcolm X and he sure not GOD Almighty. Leave that man alone!!!!

  18. Tomahawk 1889 says:

  19. atlas eons 2004 says:

  20. Isabella Lewis says:

    Everybody hating on the song not getting the message but when whack rappers come out talking about sex, drugs, and money and not educating the youth and questioning the reality of things they get praised. Smh
