J. Cole’s Bill Cosby line during freestyle rap polarizes fans

J. Cole has divided fans by mentioning Bill Cosby during a freestyle rap.

The 36-year-old musician – born Jermaine Lamarr Cole – recently appeared on “LA Leakers” to promote his new album, “The Off-Season.”

Cole began with a brief rap about success, sex, money and more before agreeing to a second freestyle. In the rapid-fire rap, Cole rapped about Cosby and said, in part, if someone is sleeping than “f— em.”

Others, however, defended the star.

“I see a lot of <needless> debate regarding Cole’s Bill Cosby line; what bothers me is its most prominent by people who from outside the culture who don’t understand hip hop lyricism & intent,” said a fan, sharing screenshots of the definitions of the words “metaphor” and “simile.” “So with that, take these definitions & apply them where they fit, if so…”
