J. Cole Explained Why He Stopped Rapping About Himself After '2014'

 

During a recent panel session with "Black Panther" director, Ryan Coogler and NFL running back, Marshawn Lynch, J. Cole revealed that he was“tired of rapping about himself.”

Cole says that after making “2014 Forest Hills Drive” he was tired of rapping about his“personal journey, flaws, and growth.” 

The Dreamville leader creditedThe New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindnessby Michelle Alexander moved him to stop rapping about himself. 

"[The New Jim Crow] was mind-blowing. It was everything we saw and see but just put into factual evidence of what was happening, it happened to coincide with a time after the Forest Hills Drive album - a time in my life where I was just tired of rapping about myself," said Cole.
