The last 24 hours have been dramatic to say the least. From Lecrae getting dragged for nodding along to a white pastor’s “blessing of slavery” comments to Eminem impersonator Chris D’Elia being accused of being a “pedophile” to J. Cole’s controversial “Snow On Tha Bluff” single, the Hip Hop community has had several topics to dissect on Twitter — including Cole and Kendrick Lamar.

On Wednesday (June 17) — which happens to be K. Dot’s birthday — both MCs became trending topics as Twitter attempted to cancel them for their perceived silence on the Black Lives Matter movement.

With the catalyst clearly being “Snow On Tha Bluff” and Cole’s alleged Noname “diss,” people were enraged their “favorite rappers” weren’t using their platforms to speak up against racism and police brutality.

But it isn’t working.

A cascade of tweets have poured in vehemently defending Cole and Kendrick. Many point out the hypocrisy of criticizing two artists who have historically used their music to highlight racial injustice and the plight of Black people across the globe — especially when they’ve been joining the protests in their respective cities.

J. Cole Responds To 'Snow On Tha Bluff' Backlash: 'Follow Noname'

Cole participated in one in Fayetteville, North Carolina in May, while Kendrick was spotted at a George Floyd protest in Compton earlier this month.

Meanwhile, others are adamant Cole is nothing close to a “misogynist” and was simply speaking his truth.
