J. Cole Reveals He Did Not Vote in 2016 Presidential Election - Find Out Why

“No, I didn’t,” he said when asked whether he voted in 2016.

“Because Hillary Clinton wasn’t somebody that was motivating me to go vote. If it was Bernie Sanders, I would’ve showed up and voted. I would’ve been the first one in line, no bullshit. No disrespect to Hillary.”

He also revealed that, despite his enthusiasm for the candidate, he did not campaign for him: “Because I don’t care to lend my voice for a politician at the end of the day,” he explained.

“I hate to be a person who’s even promoting that I didn’t vote. Actually, with Trump in office, I love that America gets to see the truth. If Hillary Clinton was in office, it would be the most f–king disingenuous s–t because everybody would be thinking that everything’s cool because we got an incredibly qualified female president. Which would’ve been amazing on so many levels. But all the s–t we see right now would’ve still existed; it would’ve just been quiet. And I prefer this s–t to be out loud. I prefer an honest America. I prefer the world seeing that, yes, we’re a country that is dumb enough — no disrespect — [that] we got duped into electing Donald Trump.”

J. Cole Is All About Puppy Love in 'Wet Dreamz' Video

J. Cole is using an interesting device to tell his story in the music video for his latest single “Wet Dreamz” — puppies!

The 30-year-old rapper uses the cute puppies to illustrate how he lost his virginity. The song details how he had a crush on a girl in his math class and talked up his sex game even though he was a virgin.

When the time came to do the deed, he got nervous and it seems letting the puppies reenact it was a lot safer to show on screen than the real thing!
