"I refuse to bring my boy or my girl in this world when I ain't got shit to give em" that's real shit right there because he's basically saying he's not trying to have his kid living a bad life not even being able to live as a kid, if the child was born it would be hard to raise... Deep

Cole and Kendrick the only ones that rap real not like these people rapping bout how much weed they smoke and how many "bitches" they've fucked. Got 13 year old kids listening to songs bout drugs and gang war, hip Hop is fucked up. Hip hop/rap should be about the story and the meaning. Then pop music is made to make teenage girls feel self conscious, they should listen to Crooked Smile. A song that makes you take pride in your faults and not worry about them. The music industry is messed up right now. Thank God for J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar for real music.

Sup cole i know you wont be able to read this but its crazy how you explain this so accurate about the situations im going thru now. But im only 19 and just graduated high school in 2014. I have no job. I cant find a stable job and i live in Philadelphia pa. But now this girl i mess with is pregnant with my child. To be honest she told me she couldnt get pregnant. But now she is and im just confused and lost. My father just recently got locked up and now im having a child. She doesnt know what to do yet. She seem like she want to have my child. "I refuse to bring my girl or boy in this world when i aint got shit to give them" this is the main thought thats goijg thru my mind. "& what about abortion" i feel like imma kill myself if i kill my child. But i dont wanna let my child stuggle the way i am. Idk cole. Im just lost right now and just needed to vent. Even tho you aint there but i just wish you could hear me out. -Tommy S.

+Tommy Siv Hello Tommy, no this is not J Cole, but in my opinion, (if it is not too,late), man I suggest you and your kid's mummy keep that child and tell her you want to keep that child, so she gets less confused herself. Then both of you find a way (a legal one) of working hard and paying to support yourselves and that child. By way of working even if it isn't that much for the time being, you can still provide enough to feed him/her, then the next thing the kid needs is lots of love and attention. Raising a child is harrrrrrrrd work and it is even harder if you are very young yourself, but let me tell you there is nothing more rewarding when you are looking after that kid and it gives you a smile, or he/she smiles when you come home from a hard days work. You think about the things you will be missing out on if you have a child, that is the one priceless thing you would miss out on not having a child. There will be alot of struggle, alot of fights, arguments and so on as like I said it will be very hard work, but life in general is hard work, whether this happened now, or later on, doesn't matter it is hard work, but it is necessary and very rewarding believe me.

This line right here made me change my thoughts on abortions, I swear it did.  "Trying to take away a life, is you God motherfucker?  I don't think so."

Coming from a teen mother, this song hits hard. I used to listen to this song while I was pregnant, and I know other teen moms probably listen to it too. If you're pregnant, whether you are a teenager or not, my son was the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Even when times are hard, when I look at him or when he smiles at me, I forget everything that's going on and he makes me feel safe and okay. I would never regret him and I'm so proud of him and proud of myself for choosing to keep him. There's so many programs out there that can help you if you just looked. There's programs that will help you with diapers, clothing, food, formula, anything you need. We live in 2015 and many people cannot afford their children but still make it with help from all these wonderful programs that we have access to but many people do not know about. In my area, there are daycares that will watch your child for you while you're at school/going to work for free. There's so many programs and people that want you to keep your baby and are willing to help. I'm not saying it is not hard being a mother, because it's the hardest job I've ever had in my life, but it's all so worth it. I love my baby and I'll sacrifice anything for him. Always remember: it is your body, and your baby. No one can force ANYTHING on you. It takes two to make a baby, but only one to kill him/her. Your say is the final decision, and most women regret abortions and usually go through depression after abortions. 98% of couples break up after abortions, while the other 2% is held together by grief. There are women who had one abortion, and was never able to have children again or their future pregnancies ended up in miscarriages. Think twice before you make your final decision and know you are never alone.

Woooah!!! This J. Cole is a real poet/artist. Where he raps the girl's side of the argument defending her right to have her baby is more convincing than the guys's argument. For a male rapper to own or inhabit a woman's perspective like that is really impressive. Fucking sensational!

J Cole is beyond real. This is the song that real started me to listening to him. I love this guy!

This is one of my favorite J cole tracks. However i really would have loved it if he would have made this into a 3 part series. Its clear to me what his stance on abortions is in this song. However In-compasses so many different reasoning's behind "why" or "why not". My 13 yr. old niece was abused by her step dad and ended up becoming pregnant. The sad part is they didn't even find out until she passed out in school one day and the nurse ended up making the discovery of her pregnancy. The bastard ended up getting 5 years....5 FUCKING yrs, of which he only served 3 on "good" conduct. When a young women becomes pregnant as a product of rape, what gives anyone the right to judge her decision to terminate a life that is the product of such heinous act. J cole fails to address the issue from this perspective, though i don't think he really had that in mind when he wrote it. However i feel if you are going to tackle a certain issue (in his case make a song about it), you have to tackle it from all possible angles, otherwise it might come across as disingenuous. Love this track but perhaps because abortion hits home for me, i would have wanted him to do his homework on the issue just a bit more.
Report spam or abuse
+Oscar Marroquin i would agree if he was using the track to purely talk about his stance or to discuss the pros and cons, but he was telling a story and there's no way that issue would fit into the story. I'm sorry about your niece though, it's such a tough topic and scenario I don't even have a stance on it myself but you're definitely right on if that happens then nobody should judge her
Report spam or abuse
I agree, he was simply telling a story and i may have looked to much into it.

To all the guys out there who have ever gotten a girl pregnant...just listen this song over and over again. Can't you feel the heart wrenching pain that this girl is feeling. Dam...you guys will never experience what it feels to have a life growing in you....but to have this life that God gave you stripped away and destroyed is the worst thing that any girl could ever have to face. The reality is...the aftermath of abortion never goes away...you can repress the pain and anguish....you can justify why doing it was the best thing, however deep deep deep inside the memory of this precious life never ever goes away. Yeah...my body is mine and I can do what I want...right? Nah Nah...Abortion isn't right...I know...cuz it's my life that I destroyed...a life I can never get back. Do I cry...hell yeah I do...cuz I did it for him...but what if anything has he done for me? Nothin...I'm all alone...lost and abandoned. So guys next time you feel horny and want to get up in her...remember pregnancy is a real thing that can happen. Be smart cuz in the end...it's not just her child but your child also.

"I ain't too proud to tell ya that I cry sometimes about it." In this line do u think cole means he isn't too proud (as in he is ashamed) to admit it Or do u think he means that he isn't too much of a man and he will swallow his pride to admit it. Some food for thought here let me know what you think

Report spam or abuse
You can always put baby's for adoption,I agree that it shouldn't happen but it's just a fetus..it's not a baby yet it won't feel anything it's not really murder.And financial problems isn't always it,sometimes abortions happen because a women was raped and she can't have a child that she will see with the face of a man that did harm to her.
