Bullshit my nigga, that ass ain't fake. The real shit jiggles.

211 points · 1 year ago

Its very fake, I basically have phd in instathots. You can tell by the stringent division of the crack and the lack of wave in the cheek. Additionally its moving as one uniform unit much like a surgically designed piece of machinery, an ass made by god is much more free flowing and chaotic.

I am el autismo when it comes to fake butts.

the rain man of fake butts


Dr. JimmehFTW, is it possible tbe ass was built? Like is it possible the ass has muscle in it from actually working out and stuff? She looks like shes in great shape compared to these other fake assed hoes. Wouldnt a muscled ass move as one?

22 points · 1 year ago

That's a very valid question. However the beauty of muscle is in how it moves when it is relaxed aka how it behaves in an ass bouncing situation. For example completely relax your bicep and shake it around like a bingo champion, depressingly you will look exactly the same as your grandma just with much less cellulite. For a much more appealing example here's Sommer Ray demonstrating that even the most rock hard ass on the planet still bounces and behaves like standard booty when it's unflexed .

Butts are phenomenally interesting.

b4dass was great no doubt but i really can not agree it was an improvement over 1999, not even close imo

also from what ive heard so far from his new stuff (sneak peaks from sc/ig/periscope etc) it sounds way diff from devastated / front n center, i wouldn't worry. they were released as singles for a reason

Agree about 1999>>b4da$$

Cole and Joey both raised the bar pretty high with their incredible mixtape (mixtapes for Cole). I think Cole lived up to the expectations for his albums way better.

While Kendrick was pretty low key before his first album (and I'm talking about Section80), at least for me. Interesting to think about the role of expactations and the effect on the opinion of the project.

It's not a critique, it seems more like advice from a close friend. Kendrick, Wale, Cole, Drake, and Cudi were the Rushmore faces of early internet blog rap a few years ago. Wale put Cole on Attention Deficit on Beautiful Bliss and let him open on his tours during mixtape Cole days.

It's kinda interesting how Wale just featured on a Smoke DZA and Pete Rock record considering the context. Wale seems to play the fence when it comes to doing it for the mainstream and doing it for hip hop. It seems like he flirts back and forth with each side on each consecutive release. He's still a talented rapper with great potential.

Holy shit he actually went in about Kanye.. I don't even see it as a straight diss, Cole actually seems upset about Kanye's recent outbursts and his current state. You already know the Yeezy stans are not going to take this well. I just checked other posts about this and people are turning on Cole hard lmao calling J. Cole shit compared to Kanye, calling Cole pathetic for trying to recreate College Dropout (wtf?), saying his music is half-ass. I'm glad Cole didn't hold back actually his thoughts and rapped about it extensively and not just a couple lines. I'm just hoping this entire sub doesn't turn on Cole now, some people are way too over protective over Kanye. It's obvious he's not out right dissing him for no reason, he's literally mentioned he was his idol. Regardless, I'm excited as fuck for his new project.

Also, the color-grading on this video is dope af, and I love the use of the Joey Bada$$ instrumental.

And don't let the Kanye diss distract you from this ass. Good lord.

232 points · 1 year ago

I can't even call it a diss really, at least not in the Jay/Nas, Drake/Meek diss way. He's just stating his thoughts on one of his heroes and how people treat him when he clearly is struggling through something.

Well, fuck it, what's more important is he's cryin' out for help

While the world's eggin' him on, I'm beggin' him to stop

136 points · 1 year ago · edited 1 year ago

I agree, it seems like he is giving more of a honest commentary/criticism of Kanye and the situation. But people often take criticism of any kind as a full throated attack, I don't see this being an exception.

He does seem to call Kanye fake at the end there.

Kanye is a lot of things but fake really isn't one of them.

The one thing that I wonder about with this being about Kanye, is that it seems to fit what Kanye is going through right now so well. But this latest stuff with Kanye really just started like two weeks ago. I have to imagine this song was written well before two weeks ago. To have the samples cleared, a video recorded, etc, this just has to be written well before Kanye's latest issues. Although I guess Kanye has been edging on catastrophe for the better part of 2016 as well.

Listening to that first verse and thinking about Jay-Z, or Lil Wayne, it still seems to fit. Maybe i'm just overthinking it.

These personal issues have been manifesting and bubbling long before it gets out to us in the media with these celebrities yo. We don't have real time coverage of celebrities' emotions... Just yet.

It even fits with Cudi. It fits to a lot of different artists and we can't really be sure who it's about without him telling us

Definetly agree with you. If it were a diss he would be breaking Kanye down and paying him out. He's literally being honest and saying what no one would dare to say about such an iconic figure in hip hop. He's concerned for him because of how he's acting. I think this is some risky but very, very real shit and I respect Cole for it.

This entire sub turned on Cole years ago

Who knows why

People seriously out here telling me Cole isn't a top 50(!) rapper

19 points · 1 year ago

Wtf he's top 10 current not 50.

Ehhh I could argue Top 10 right now honestly

Saying he's not Top 50 right now is ridiculous though

8 more replies

top 50 current I'll give him that. but not 50 all time

I'm sorry for singling you out and nit picking, but like even "I'll give him top 50 current" blows my mind. I mean the way you phrased it. Hear me out

Any way you slice it Cole is huge in hip hop right now. If the top 50 is entirely personal preference I can maybe see how some people wouldn't have Cole in theirs, but he's so prolific and objectively talented compared to a lot of guys.

I just can't think of even 30 rappers out right now who I could possibly consider "better" than J Cole. Full disclosure I would put him in my top 10 current, if nothing else because his bars are so technically proficient and his lyrics get a lot of ideas across.

People on this sub give him constant shit for corny lyrics, being emotional, selling out, being boring, etc. but I literally can't fathom how a diverse hip hop fan could listen to, say, FHD and consider it anything less than extremely impressive.

Like some of the same people who trash Cole love Game, and I think their styles are really similar (although Cole is definitely the more accessible of the two for mainstream listeners)

This is all my opinion and I already wish I didn't write this comment but it's long af so I'm gonna post it anyway. Hopefully I don't come off as an asshole

he's in my top 20 it's just the other guy used top 50 so I went by that too.

I don't have a problem with Cole personally with what he's saying but I completely disagree with it and I don't think Cole holds the weight to be dissing Kanye of all people. In my opinion, Kanye has consistently released hits and stayed on top from 2004-2012. That's NINE years on top. Once he released Yeezus that's when I started to feel he's starting to drop off, but still, 9 years is legendary. Cole is criticizing Kanye for TLOP, which, I agree wasn't great, but dissing Kanye for his work on the tail end of his career is like dissing Kobe for the past 3 years. In the end, Kanye solidified his place as one of the GOATs in hip hop despite his last two projects. Meanwhile, while I ENJOY Coles music, I don't think he has yet to top Friday Night Lights, which was the project that essentially launched his career 6 years ago.

And the Wale diss also rubbed off on me poorly because I think they've made amazing music together. Winter Schemes is one of my top 3 Cole songs, with a big thanks to Wale, and now he kinda diminishes it.

I'm still gonna listen to 4YEO I'm sure it will be solid, I'm not gonna turn on him, I just find his lyrics hypocritical.

14 points · 1 year ago

Yeah honestly, all I got from this song was that J Cole feels that Kanye has some sort of commitment to making the music that Cole wants him to. Weird sense of entitlement. I would have preferred an actual diss track instead taking some sort of weird high ground like he is here.

Tried putting this friend of mine onto Kanye West recently. She said she only thinks of him as an arrogant, self-absorbed, entitled POS that makes subpar music.

I agree that he's arrogant, self-absorbed, entitled and -- possibly -- a POS but I can't deny how his music touched me when I was younger. I'm going to sound so OLD saying this but I know there's a lot of you that can agree. Kanye's older albums touched my life in the past, present and will undoubtedly continue to do so in the future. I remember being a confused teenager in high school listening to his material and digging the new feeling I was getting. Yet I didn't truly understand some of the deeper, finer points of his message until I was in college. I never really EXPERIENCED what he was talking about until I was out in the job market trying to find myself and employment.

This guy...I can only speculate where things went awry. But little by little all of his antics chip away at this monolithic statue I build of him in my mind. He'd drop some whack shit and I'd be like "Nah, it's Kanye so there has to be some deeper meaning", he'd go on some ill-formed rant and I'd be like "man, nobody wants to try to understand Kanye" and I keep making excuses for him. Even after typing this I'll continue to do the same -- the man's albums mean that much to me.

But now more than ever I understand that he's just a man. Perhaps the words he spoke on those tracks years ago were just words. Perhaps I invested too much into him and tried to deify a man that's just as insecure, confused and unaware as the rest of us.

His whole shtick from the beginning was that he is self conscious and insecure. Literally "All Falls Down" off his first album paints the picture clearly.

I dont get what the difference is? His message is still the same? It just has to mature with his environment..

What he's saying I think is the message may still be the same but the level of which we allow the message to impact us is all up to us. Is it just another rapper talking or is it YEEZUS a rap God who can do no wrong?/u/radiocide you said that well, I feel the exact same way (If I'm interpreting this the same way you meant it.) Definitely makes you rethink how much you idolize a man and his words.

I think it makes his message even more potent. Look it's just some dude who feels everything you feel, out there, yelling at people to get better, and believe in themselves and who has created a huge catalog of art.

It's even more inspiring that he's not a 'god' in that sense...

This shit is just too simple and I guess heavy handed for me. Having a clear message in your music is good but I feel like in a lot of J. Cole's music he's beating me over the head with a really simple concept.

It's almost like he's writing a term paper with his songs. "Here's my argument, and here's the 3 major pieces of evidence I have to back it up." Maybe that's why people think he's boring.

At the same time, it's a great writing tool, usually.

I think Cole suffers from a strange combination of sounding commercial and being somewhat intellectual. I think it's hard for a lot of people to reconcile.

That doesn't contradict anything in his verse.

Cole says Kanye was his hero, and TLOP and Yeezus were half assed. Yeezus was finished the day it went out (after cramming for a week with Rubin) and TLOP got like 4 post release patches. They're still good albums to most people, but they aren't Kanye at his best.

71 points · 1 year ago

I don't feel like Yeezus was half assed at all (or TLOP really). Kanye just tinkers with shit until the last second. Yeezus is probably my favorite Ye album, and I'm sure that there are other people here who agree.

Yea, Yeezus has an argument for being one of his best projects. It's definitely not half assed

in what ways were Yeezus better than College Dropout, Late Reg, MBDTF and/or Graduation? not trying to go at you, just wondering your opinion.

9 points · 1 year ago · edited 1 year ago

I don't know that it is "better" than any of those albums (or 808s even), but what I do find is that I go back to Yeezus more than his other albums. I like the more industrial and "heavier" production and I like the minimalist/stripped down lyrics. I just like the way it flows and feels and it has more of an all encompassing atmosphere than the other albums if that makes sense.

Honestly when Yeezus first came out I thought it was just kind of "alright", but it's grown on me more and more over time. I love everything Ye has done so picking a favorite album is sort of like picking a favorite kid, but everyone still has a favorite kid.

"After West played him a rough cut of the album that Rubin thought was due out next year, the producer spent two hectic weeks helping West shape the album to meet a deadline that was a mere five weeks away. "We ended up working probably 15 days, 16 days, long hours, no days off, 15 hours a day. I was panicked the whole time," Rubin said."

"Just two days before the album was supposed to be turned in, five songs still needed vocals. "Don't worry, I will score 40 points for you in the fourth quarter," Kanye allegedly told Rubin."

I know he had this cooked up before Ye went to the hospital, but it's just horrible timing to come out and criticize a dude for having "cries for help" when he actually had to go and get help. Like criticizing Ye for music right now seems so trivial in comparison to the shit he's actually going through. I know it will vibe with some of the less sympathetic and people who really don't fuck with Ye but it's a complete miss from me on timing alone. I don't care about some rap shit when you're talking about the mental well being of a father of 2.

This song isn't a diss as much as the disappointment of watching your idol spiral out of control. The "Well, fuck it, what's more important is he's cryin' out for help" line isn't a shot at all. If anything, it's the most redeeming part of the song.

How is it not a diss to reference Kanye and his mental health symptoms publicly on a track called False Prophets, as if Kanye has some control over whether or not he suffers from a psychiatric emergency that required hospitalization? When J. Cole says, "So he grows out of control / Into the person that he truly was all along, it's startin' to show" he's showing a complete lack of awareness about how debilitating mental health issues can be.

Also, the clear references to Kanye's inflated sense of ego and insulting his "half-assed" music demonstrate this as well when you consider that these were all textbook red flags for symptoms of mania.

I'm a fan of J. Cole but I agree with the poster above, releasing this at this time shows a lack of tact. No one would write a diss track expressing "disappointment" about someone suffering from a physical ailment, so I'm not going to give J. Cole a pass here for insulting someone who needed to be hospitalized for a psychiatric emergency.

The disses just seem like a way to build hype for his album

They aren't disses though. They're observations of what's really happening.

He's definitely hating on "the new" kanye pretty hard.

Comments like this are why people make fun of J Cole fans for being "superior intellects" who can really see whats going on in the game, the inarguable truth. Come on man, just because j cole said it doesn't mean its not an opinion.

The hip hop community when J. Cole disses Kanye while he's hospitalized for a mental illness: "Cole is so real! Fuck these fake rappers! COLE WORLD!"

The hip hop community when Drake disses Kid Cudi while he's in rehab for a mental illness: "UNCALLED FOR! DRAKE IS LITERALLY HITLER!"
