J. Cole drops a warning ahead of his project for 2019 in this new rap single titled “Middle Child”
Cole in this song refers to himself as the “MIDDLE CHILD” as he considers himself to be in between the old and new generation.
On January 21, 2019, Cole purged his entire Instagram. He then proceeded to post and delete several phrases, which turned out to compose the beginning of the song’s refrain.
N!ggas been countin’ me out
I’m countin’ my bullets, I’m loadin’ my clips
I’m writin’ down names, I’m makin’ a list
I’m checkin’ it twice and I’m gettin’ ’em hit
The real ones been dyin’, the fake ones is lit
The game is off balance, I’m back on my shit
The Bentley is dirty, my sneakers is dirty
But that’s how I like it, you all on my d!ck
