J Cole has been relatively quiet since collaborating with DJ Premier for Gang Starr on 'Family and Loyalty' however that changed just yesterday when he dropped new single 'Snow on tha Bluff.'
The track itself has a slow, mellow vibe containing gentle guitar riffs with classic J Cole lyrical flow. In a time where most people in the industry have been keeping low key and reflecting on the sad events in relation to the of police killing George Floyd, the track is a welcome soothing sound with a political message. The Dreamville founder raps about someone who is "mad at these murder police" and talks of how "these shackles be lockin the mental way more than physical, I look at freedom like trees, can't grow a forest like overnight, hit the ghetto and slowly start planting your seeds."
The Grammy Nominated artist's 'Dreamville Festival' which was due to take place in North Carolina in May was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Cole also joined the protests for George Floyd in the city earlier this month.
Cole's new album 'The Fall Off' which does not yet have a release date may well include the track on the album.
'Snow on tha Bluff' is available on most digital platforms and you can check it out below.
