LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX, BABY: THE PORNOGRAPHY OF J. COLE, THE SEXUAL LIBERATION OF YOUNG THUG!!!


On "Planes," J. COLE compares sex oral sex with him to having a foot stuck in your vagina mouth.  It is the most disturbing lyric of the year, not least because J. Cole is supposed to be a different kind of rapper.  Why does this filthmonger get a pass?  Because he's marketed as a conscious rapper?  His song about losing his virginity is supposed to be charming and self-effacing, but it's just vile and pottymouthed.  This guy makes AKINYELE sound like a shrinking violet.  He wants to be NAS, but Nas only rapped about analingus.  J. Cole is the epitome of a "nice guy" who is actually a bag of garbage.

The depth of YOUNG THUG'S lyric about going to prison and fucking your father gives bold definition to the gratuitous pornography of Cole's lyrics.  In less than a bar, Young Thug makes a provocative open-ended statement on the penal system and sexual abuse.  Insulting one's opponent is a key trope in rap, but with a wry acknowledgement of his public image's controversial gender politics, Young Thug uses it as an opportunity to subvert rap's explicit standard of heteronormativity, challenge gender norms, and silence homophobia.  Kudos to Young Thug.  He should rename himself Young Social Justice Warrior.  J. Cole should talk to a priest or a sex therapist idk fuck him.
