J. Cole Criticizes Baltimore Ravens for Not Signing Colin Kaepernick During His Concert (VIDEO)
Rapper J. Cole is currently entertaining millions of his fans as he travels around the country with his 4 your eyez only tour, but he’s also making sure he uses his enormous platform to speak on real-life social issues.
During his most recent stop in Baltimore, Cole spoke about the police officers in the city, as well as the Baltimore Ravens, who chose not to sign the free agent quarterback.
Just before starting his next set, Cole brought up the state of Baltimore, and how they need somebody with money and power to help the city out and represent for it. He mentioned Colin Kaepernick as the person that could be of service to the city, as he kneeled in protest of the same types of things that the city is currently trying to stop—like their most recent issue, where a few cops have been accused of planting drugs on people.
“Matter of fact, don’t y’all think that someone that got money, power and fame should be standing up for them type of shits?” Cole explained. “Baltimore, the shit that’s happening here, don’t you think that somebody should risk their whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this shit? Even if it cost them their money, their job, their life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he doing? And he trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that shit for real.”
