I also think this verse goes a little deeper. I think this is actually a direct indictment of President Obama, someone who moved us back in 2008, but has been a little flat lately (putting it lightly). Cole has been critical of politicians, including Obama in the past. See J.Cole — I Get Up “Politicians hollerin' bout problems but I ain’t gon' vote, He talk about change, Still we floatin' in the same ol' boat”
