The Fayetteville legendary rapper released a new song on Tuesday, Snow On Tha Bluff had social media going crazy because it contains a verse that many fans interpret as taking aim at Chicago rapper Noname.

On Wednesday, J. Cole told fans that he stands by his lyrics, but also encouraged them to follow Noname: “I love and honor her as a leader in these times.”

Here are some other important J. Cole lyrics from his new song:

“These shackles be locking the mental way more than the physical,

I look at freedom like trees,

can’t grow a forest like overnight,

Hit the ghetto and slowly start planting your seeds”
