The rapper’s first single as lead artist in 2020, it marks another step beyond the boundaries of 2018 album ‘KOD’.
New album ‘The Fall Off’ has been teased continuously, and many see ‘Snow On Tha Bluff’ as being part of that story.
Out now, ‘Snow On Tha Bluff’ has lyrics that discuss J. Cole scrolling through someone’s Twitter timeline: “She mad at the celebrities, low key I be thinkin’ she talking bout me…”
He adds later: “But shit, it’s something about the queen tone that’s bothering me.”
Is this a reference to Noname? She seemed to think so, tweeting (and then deleting): “QUEEN TONE!!!!!!”
