(AllHipHop Rumors) Kanye West was once the leader of the new school and proclaimed something like "homie, this is my time." But, a lot of people are telling something to the man that once proclaimed "you can't tell me nothing." The mess continues! Now, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar have seemingly made commentary about Kanye without saying a whole lot. First, J. Cole.
For those that don't know, Cole loves Nas. Nas's next album is supposedly going to be handled totally by Kanye West. The quote is from a Nas song, "These Are Our Heroes," which goes at modern Black icons like Tiger Woods that don't represent for the masses of POC.It was a scathing song when it dropped in 2004. Now, isn't this a weird twist. The golden man J. Cole is selling more than anybody these days, breaking streaming records like vinyl. He sends a direct shot at Kanye yesterday and at's Nas! As far as I know, J. Cole has never called out Kanye by name, but he has not been shy about his dislike of him. He's CLEAR.
Kendrick Lamar was a bit more sublime. He simply stopped following Kanye on Twitter. That's also a bold statement. Kanye only follows his wife on social media so that's not a mutual situation regardless. But, I would imagine that K-Dot looked up to Kanye at some point. Now, like Cole, Kendrick is a leader in the moment...based on music.
Lastly, I heard that Chance The Rapper and Kanye MAY have had some type of falling out. Nothing confirmed and I know that the social media seems to show solidarity. I think that's just some Chi-Town love. Behind the scenes, I think distance is being created at a rapid rate. It could also just be a rumor.
Kanye wanted this. He got it. By the way, check out his latest "freestyle"...thoughts?
