J. Cole References Kevin Hart Cheating Scandal on “Kevin’s Heart”

J Cole

J. Cole released his fifth studio album KOD this week. On the album, Cole finds himself as the conscience of the mainstream culture of hip-hop. He is the moral compass of the debauchery that has overcome the genre of promoted drug use and its obsession with money and sex.

On the seventh track of the album “Kevin’s Heart,” Cole references comedian Kevin Hart’s cheating scandal with his then eight months pregnant wife Eniko. Last October, Hart publicly apologized to his family while revealing that he was being extorted over a sex tape he made with another woman.

Cole raps on the song:

“Monkey on my back and I walk a hundred miles
Guilt make a nigga feel fake when he smile
Love get confused in the mind of a child
Cause love wouldn’t lie like I lie and it’s wild
Wanna have my cake and another cake too
Even if the baker don’t bake like you
Even when the flavor don’t taste like you
So I’m back mobbing with the late night crew
All in your mind with fears that would come true
The back of my mind, the back of my mind was you
Wishing that I could blind myself from view
The only advice, the only advice for you”

On the surface it may seem like J. Cole is taking shots at Kevin Hart. The rapper is using Hart’s situation as a metaphor for a person addicted to drugs which holds true for the kids on drugs theme of the album. He is correlating someone cheating on their partner with substance abuse.
