J. Cole released the much anticipated music video to his song, “Middle Child" and this Insider video looks at all the hidden meanings, Easter eggs, and references that even the biggest hip hop fans might have missed. In the video he seems to reference the fact that he's yet to win a Grammy and that he's awkwardly stuck between two hip hop generations.
He also appears to tackle the topic of cultural appropriation of black people and artists. What might be most interesting is that the video might be referencing his past beef rapper L'il Pump. The video shows that while Cole is continuously overlooked in the music industry, the rapper is still a quiet but deadly hunter. In the video, he puts rappers' heads on a mantle, and shows a white woman literally shopping for a black woman's face.
The video gives us a breakdown of all things you may have missed in the rapper’s newest video.
