[Intro]

I'm a livin' little good thing

It's like you never lived for me, yeah

Mama said you was a good thing, uh

Good, good, good, yeah

Yeah

We came a long way, man, we done came a long way

And we sittin' on top of this shit

This shit can go one or two ways

This shit can go up, it can go down

Either way, nigga, I'm prepared

Feel me? Yeah

[Verse]

I be comin' in peace, but fuck me

Best beware of the others

This shit deep, undercovers creep

This Southern heat make unbearable summers

Just last week, seen yo' mama weep

Crying 'cause she don't wan' bury your brother

The blood lеaks while the EMTs gotta carry her baby likе surrogate mothers

Woah, thank God we survived around where the terrorists hovered

Though traumatized, wouldn't trade it for nothin'

Through hard times, it was there I discovered a hustle and makin' the best out the struggle

I kept grindin' 'til this day, up a level

I kept grindin' 'til this day, up a level

Respect mine, gotta stay out of trouble

'Cause TEC-9s like to air out rebuttals

Cole World, niggas knowin' what it is

Just in case they don't, I show 'em what it is

Then summer, I do real numbers

Couldn't dare touch it if they sold the double disc

Block hot, niggas burnin' up the street

Shots poppin' and we heard it up the street

It's a war, niggas runnin' up the score

Jesus said that you should turn the other cheek

Voiceless niggas gettin' murdered every week

Dead bodies, smell the odor in the street

My homie' homie got out on parole

He sold more Coca-Cola than the soda industry

Summertime bring the coldest winter breeze

Hella blues like the Rollin' 60's

Christ went to Heaven aged thirty-three

And so did Pimp C and so did Nipsey

[Outro]

I told you, I told you

This shit can go up, it can go down, I don't give a fuck

Nigga, I done seen the highest heights

I done seen it twice

And I've seen the lowest of the lows

And still I rose

Now I'm at your neck, nigga, yeah

J. Cole 'Interlude' lyrics meaning explained

Full Lyrics of  ‘i n t e r l u d e’ by J.Cole

So, what do the lyrics to 'Interlude' really mean?

We came a long way, man, we done came a long way / And we sittin' on top of this shit - Cole reflects on the success of his stellar hip-hop career and looks back on the progress he's made in his life.

This Southern heat make unbearable summers / Just last week, seen your mama weep / Crying 'cause she don't wan' bury your brother - The rapper's impeccable wordplay comes into full effect here with the use of a double entendre. 'Southern heat' references the warm temperatures in the southern areas of the United States, while also nodding to the face that these States have some of the highest rates of gun deaths in the country. He mentions a mother crying at the death of her son as a result.

The blood leaks while thе EMTs / Gotta carry her baby like surrogate mothеrs - A surrogate mother is a women who agrees to carry and deliver someone else's child, a practice often chosen due to pregnancy complications. Cole compares the use of stretchers and ambulances used by medical professionals to the carrying of a child.

My homie' homie got out on parole / He sold more Coca-Cola than the soda industry - When Coca-Cola - which is often shortened to 'Coke' - was first invented, the drink contained cocaine before it was removed in 1903. Here, Cole is rapping about his friend dealing drugs.

Christ went to Heaven aged thirty-three / And so did Pimp C and so did Nipsey - Here, Cole references the death of Jesus Christ, who is said to have died at the age of 33. Texas rapper Pimp C died in December 2007 aged 33 from an accidental codeine overdose. Nipsey Hussle died in March 2019, also aged 33, after being shot in the parking lot of his store, Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles, according to Capitalxtra.

The Off-Season will serve as the follow-up to J. Cole’s 2018 album KOD as well as his 2019 Dreamville compilation Revenge of the Dreamers III. Last year, the rapper released a pair of songs, ‘The Climb Back’ and ‘Lion King on Ice’, though it is unclear whether they will appear on the new record. The singles were initially released as part of a new album titled The Fall Off, which could be the follow-up to The Off Season.
