In his new leaked track “Fire Squad” off his upcoming 2014 Forest Hills Drive album, J. Cole isn’t holding anything back. He calls out several white entertainers including the late Elvis Presley for “biting” Hip-Hop and Rock ‘N’ Roll culture. On “Fire Squad,” J. Cole rhymes:

“History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes / Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows / Same thing that my ni**a Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore.”

J. Cole also expresses his thoughts about Iggy Azalea on the leaked track:

“While silly ni**as argue over who gon’ snatch the crown / Look around my ni**a, white people have snatched the sound / This year I’ll probably go to the awards dappered down / Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile.”

Looks like Iggy Azalea can add another one to the list. What do you think about J. Cole’s controversial lyrics? Do you believe all the entertainers he called out are stealing the culture?
