Noname Addresses J. Cole On “Song 33”: “This Is All He Can Offer?”

She wasted no time in issuing a response to J. Cole’s “Snow on Tha Bluff,” and fans are storming social media to give their take on Noname’s Malib-produced single “Song 33.” Noname shared her single earlier today (June 18), a track that lasts only one-minute and nine-seconds. The Chicago rapper packs a punch on the track where she highlights the recent murder of 19-year-old activist Oluwatoyin Salau, the numerous black people who have been found hanging from trees, and the growing number of Black women who have gone missing.

“Song 33” marks Noname’s first solo delivery of 2020, and it comes two days after J. Cole shared “Snow on Tha Bluff” where he addressed her criticisms of artists who have remained silent on the recent Black Lives Matter protests and issues plaguing the Black community. “He really bout to write about me / When the world is in smokes?,” she raps on “Song 33.” She added, “When it’s people in trees?/When George begging for his mother saying he couldn’t breathe / You thought to write about me?

Little did I know all my reading would be a bother / It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer? / And this is what y’all receive?,” Noname continued. While the song received mixed reactions, it was overwhelmingly supported by fans. Check out a few reactions below and let us know what you think about “Song 33.”
