American rapper J. Cole’s new single Snow On Tha Bluff posted on his YouTube page Tuesday has had fans scratching their heads wondering who the artist is referring to.

The song seemingly references a single person throughout, and addresses the recent protests that have gripped the US and the world following the death of George Floyd last month.

“My IQ is average, there’s a young lady out there, she way smarter than me / I scrolled through her timeline in these wild times, and I started to read / She mad at these crackers, she mad at these capitalists, mad at these murder police,” the lyrics to the song go.

Fans have begun to assume that Cole is referring to Chicago rapper Noname, who has been tweeting her support for black activism and related subjects, such as defunding the police.

Not everyone on social media has agreed with Cole’s critique of Noname, however, and many have gone online to express their support for Noname, and disdain for Cole’s song.

Protests have rocked the US since the death of George Floyd in May. In their wake, there has been considerable discontent, with many searching for soluations.

In Tennessee, lawmakers suggested replacing a statue of former KKK leader Nathan Bedford Forrest with country music singer Dolly Parton earlier this week.

Statues have become a focal point for the protests. On Monday night, protestors in New Mexico’s largest city, Albuquerque, tried to tear down the bronze statue of a Spanish conquistador. One man was shot during the protest and remains in hospital care.
