J. Cole Goes On Twitter Rant, Says Music Critics Are “F*cking Up Hip-Hop”

1c43ac3e26ea285ec75886e2fff98ade J. Cole Goes On Twitter Rant, Says Music Critics Are “F*cking Up Hip Hop”

J. Cole‘s Born Sinner definitely avoided the sophomore slump, but it received a few tepid reviews, one (or several) of which seem to have ticked off the generally cool-headed rapper. Today (June 19) Cole took to Twitter to call out music critics, arguing that they (we) overthink and under-listen to albums before reviewing them. And that practice, along with album sales projections, are “fucking up hip-hop.” He finished off by lobbing the “critics aren’t fans” go-to and said “fuck critics” — but not before showing a bit of optimism, firing off names like Kendrick Lamar and Drake as those who are “saving hip-hop.”

Head below to see the string of tweets.

 

(By the way, we can assure you our reviewer listened to the album numerous times)

 

 

 

For what it’s worth, when we chatted with Cole recently, he was really cool and completely genial and forthcoming. So for you sensitive writer types out there, it would appear that this is nothing personal.
