J. Cole Just Proved He is the Most “Bout It” Rapper of The Day [LIVE PERFORMANCE] @JColeNC @Letterman
December 11, 2014
Last night the 21st century rapper on the vanguard J. Cole performed on David Letterman. While he is actively promoting his latest album 2014 Forest Hills Drive, he took to the stage to perform his uplifting song “Be Free”. Covered extensively here on soulhead.com, we were curious as to how a live performance of the song would handle the interlaid live interview from Ferguson, MO. He made the choice to add a new, and biting, verse to the song that served to break down the respectability politics of established Black leaders. Unquestionably an iconic performance, J.Cole just proved that above all things, he is committed to the cause of Black liberation.
