When The Smoke Clears(A Rap Thread)


Curious, how did you interpret his lyrics in regard to all the 6ix9ine stuff?

What I got was he was sending a message to other rappers who play gangsters for clout…

Pray for Takeshi / they want him to rot
I picture him inside a cell on a cot
‘Flectin on how it made it to the top
Wondering if it was worth it or not

As in pray for dude but he’s probably in there thinkin…at what cost did my fame come? Am I paying for it with 32 to life in the feds now!?


I read an interview where J Cole said that he said that he respected Tekashi cause he was willing to get fame through whatever means possible… :face_with_raised_eyebrow: considering the sexual allegations, it’s really, really sus. Not really trying to be cancel-culturey (he’s got a long prison sentence ahead of him anyways) but it’s kind of a sketch line from Cole.
