Once I saw a few of those tweets calling him a "simp" I think that is who he is flipping the bird at.

    I don't like him for her either but I hope this puts that action into some context.
    If that is who he was targeting, there are several much more mature, more intelligent, and more effective ways to get one's message across than that.

    And who's to say that is actually who he was targeting?
    I, personally, don't think he was targeting anyone - he was just doing it because he somehow thinks it's 'cool'. If he were 13 years old, it would still be stupid and immature, but would be more understandable, at least.

    I just sampled some of Cordae’s music, and unless Naomi’s off court hobbies include smoking weed and popping percs, I suspect they may just drift apart organically

    Not defending this kid but... yeah, defending this kid. That gesture is actually a visual crutch for the new generation. It really means nothing by now because it is so common. He is not "flipping the bird" to anybody or anything in particular. I bet he could be in a shot with his mom and do the same thing. It is like this new habit of sticking your tongue out for photographs, which really, again, means nothing.
    C'mon, we all grew up reading CATCHER IN THE RYE. It is the same thing as Holden Caulfield wearing his cap backwards. "Hey, I'm a rebel, I sing to a different tune". That is all.
    Even if they all sing to the same different tune.

    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    They live together, so she might drift apart from him the way many of us did from bad decisions in our early 20s, or he might be a good choice and she sticks with him. But Naomi is fully in this relationship right now. This one picture shouldn't be the sole thing everyone here judges him on.

    And you're selling his music short, he talks about much more than that. Boiling it down to just that is actually insulting and I'm not even a fan.

    That's actually perfectly and elegantly stated.

    Like I said, I only sampled and I heard what I heard

    Don't forget rappers are supposed to maintain the street thug persona no matter what their real lives are. If a lot of his work focuses on taking percocet and smoking weed it sounds pretty middle class to me. I'm using Long Island (Nassau and Suffok counties of NYS) and the borough of Staten Island as my examples.
    No matter how cynical I get, I just can't keep up. Lily Tomlin.
