J. Cole‘s KOD album was released last Friday and the fanfare around the record has been pouring in since it was unveiled to the masses. On the closing track, “1985,” it was rumored by some to be a track taking shots at rising young rappers Smokepurpp and Lil Pump, and at a recent Smokepurpp show, fans chanted “F*ck J. Cole” in unison.
The moment went down this past Friday (April 20) at Atlanta’s Buckhead Theater. It wasn’t readily understood why the crowd broke into the chant, or if Smokepurpp helped lead it.
Although Cole never mentions anyone’s name in the song, some are assuming the lines were aimed at the two Florida rappers. There seems to be some history between Smokepurpp and Cole, and Lil Pump released the “F*ck J. Cole” diss track last year.
“I heard one of em’ diss me, I’m surprised I ain’t trippin’, listen good to my reply/Come here lil’ man, let me talk with ya/See if I can paint for you the larger picture,” J. Cole said in “1985” which some say was aimed at Lil Pump.
The other lines read, “I must say, by your songs I’m unimpressed/But I love to see a Black man get paid/And plus, you having fun and I respect that” which some argue are aimed directly at Smokepurpp. Lil Pump felt away about “1985” obviously and responded in a video tweeted by Worldstar Hip Hop.

Hip-Hop’s influence continues to show throughout the country’s most critical social and political moments. Ludacris‘ rowdy 2001 hit “Move B*tch” was recently used as a protest chant against Donald Trump.
Close to 2,000 people marched from Downtown Atlanta to the gravesite of Martin Luther King Jr. to protest the recent racist brutality in Charlottesville, VA.
The peaceful rally drew individuals of all backgrounds looking to voice their stance against hate. During a portion of the walk, President Donald Trump became the clear target as protesters incorporated his name to the theme of “Move B*tch.”
“Move Trump, get out the way, get out the way” became the chant of the crowd over the booming instrumental. This moment caught the attention of Luda himself who later shared footage of the rally on his Instagram saying “#MoveTrump ✊🏾”.
Hopefully there isn’t an answer record from the POTUS in the works.

“Weird Al” Yankovic and his band stopped by Jack White’s Third Man Records in Nashville where they recorded a song under some very unique circumstances.
Yankovic and crew piled into White’s restored 1947 Voice-o-Graph booth, which records straight to vinyl, and let loose an a cappella series of chants, song snippets and bits of gibberish.
The song is actually a condensed version of “The Yoda Chant,” which the band performs during the live version of “Yoda,” Yankovic’s parody of the 1970 Kinks’ classic, “Lola.”
The song has evolved over the years, but the version performed here includes bits of “Frère Jacques,” Mighty Boosh’s “Four Way Crimp” and “Grim Grinning Ghosts” from Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride.
Along with Yankovic, the clip features guitarist Jim “Kimo” West, keyboardist Ruben Valtierra and bassist Steve Jay.
Check it out in the clip above.
“It sounds like that Neil Young album,” Yankovic jokes after listening to the tune.
He’s referring to “A Letter Home,” the disc released last year that was recorded in the Voice-o-Graph booth.

In a 9-second video that quickly went viral, students from the University of Oklahoma’s Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter were seen on a bus clapping, pumping their fists and laughing as they sang a racist chant. The video sparked outrage, and the university expelled two students and shut down the fraternity chapter.
“My guess is that these young men — they’re probably not bad kids — but I bet they grew up in a white bubble. Their church is all white, their social networks are all white. They’ve probably never had someone of color in their living room to break bread,” says Dr. Charles Gallagher, a La Salle University professor and researcher in the field of racial and social inequality. In the video above, he tells Dr. Phil that he’s not surprised by the college students’ behavior. “When you get around same race groups of friends, things like this become OK.”
This episode of Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Watch more here, including the story of a woman who says her father is an Imperial Wizard of the White Knights of the KKK and refuses to accept her biracial child.

You guys, Rush Limbaugh has something to say.
The host discussed the widely talked-about racist chant video sung by University of Oklahoma’s SAE fraternity on his show today,…

Nobody can hide in the world of social media, especially not racist and cowardice college students at the University of Oklahoma. The alleged frat boy who led the racist chant that dismantled the entire universities SAE chapter in record time, has been exposed.
According to social media, his name is Parker Rice. There isn’t any real proof substantiating this just yet, but Rice’s name has been making the rounds for so many hours now that if it wasn’t him, he probably would’ve said something by now (unless he’s at work, or busy moving stuff out of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon frat house).
Social media is still aflame at the very thought of people acting like this—especially with the timing of its release. On Saturday (March 7), the nation was celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Selma march.
This video serves as a reminder of the institutionalized racism deeply rooted in the minds of young people who are assumed to be more progressive than the racist past from which they were clearly raised.
