J. Cole Felt Used by Kanye West


Last month Kanye West publicized text messages from fellow musicians after he declared his love for Donald Trump and said African Americans chose to be slaves [click here if you missed that].

J. Cole, one of the musicians who called Kanye, says he felt used after Yeezy tweeted about their conversation...

Cole tells Angie Martinez,
“He called me, but I would have never posted that or, like, tell him to post that. That made me feel a certain type of way. I told him that. He apologized, for the record. I told him that it felt like you just used my name in that very quick conversation for social media and to keep your thing going, whatever you were doing. It just felt like it wasn’t sincere because of that.”
“He said, right off the rip, ‘Man, I need you to hold me accountable. Keep me in check. Say whatever you gotta say. I need that. I feed off that. Are you sure? Because I see this a certain way.’ Actually, on the phone, I was concerned for him. That’s the real truth. I was wondering like, ‘Yo, am I supposed to be helping this dude?’ When you empower a demographic of people whose whole intent is to suppress and oppress people, I can’t rock with that.” 
“You’re not freethinking when your ego is pulling the strings.”

Naw, he said how he felt. He's disappointed in Koonye, and he has every right to be. Then Koonye come around him with some more false "woke" and "(re)discovering (my)self shit" FOH Koonye!
