I realize my name probably doesn’t give me any credibility here but personally I think the song was just a story of how he came to the realization that he might not be doing enough and him struggling with the fact that people look to him for leadership and guidance when from his perspective all he’s ever done is just talk about how he feels through music. That’s why he’s saying “I’m just a rapper”, he’s never pretended to be some super ultra-intelligent knowledgeable rapper but people have been meming him about it for years which I’m sure he’s aware of. Part of the problem is his annoying fanbase.

I don’t know shit about mainstream hip-hop or the twitter wars. then I actually understand the lyrics and I may compromise on understanding Obama as well. It’s a certain disposition of privilege and condescension that can turn people off. It’s not about tone, but an affinity for division within allies. For Obama to say it is pretty muddied considering he’s likely punching down at critics who are disappointing in him, but even as passive-aggressive as Obama and J. Cole’s lyrics may sound, they should be interpreted constructively because it is a feeling that is being felt.
