J. Cole recently made headlines when he noticeably skipped a line from his hit song “No Role Modelz” during a live performance. Specifically the line he skipped referenced “that Jada and that Will love.” However, this particular lyric from the song had garnered significant attention due to its allusion to the personal lives of the famous Hollywood couple, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith. J. Cole’s decision to omit the line during his performance immediately sparked curiosity and discussion among fans and media outlets. The verse in question originally reads: “I want a real love, dark-skinned Aunt Viv love. That Jada and that Will love. That leave a toothbrush at your crib love. And you ain’t gotta wonder whether that’s your kid love.”
Moreover, the change in the performance was seen by many as a deliberate move by J. Cole, potentially aimed at respecting the privacy of the Smiths and not engaging further in a topic that had already gained substantial media attention.
