1985 (Intro To The Fall Off)
Lil Pump reacted to the song hours after the album's release via Instagram saying, "Wow, you get so much props. You dissed a 17 year old, lame ass jit." Later that day during a concert in Atlanta, Smokepurrp, along with his fans erupted in a chant of "Fuck J. Cole." According to Cole, the target of the song is more general. He said it takes aim at what he sees as the cartoon version of hip-hop, he explained: "If you exclude the top three rappers in the game, the most popping rappers all are exaggerated versions of black stereotypes. Extremely tatted up. Colorful hair. Flamboyant. Brand names. It's caricatures, and still the dominant representation of black people, on the most popular entertainment format for black people, period". On May 4, 2018, as Cole was performing at JMBLYA festival in Dallas, he performed "1985", cutting off the backing track so he could rap his verse a cappella. The crowd erupted in chants of "Fuck Lil Pump" and "Fuck 6ix9ine." Cole immediately shut down the chants telling the crowd, "Don't do that." Cole performed "1985" during his Rolling Loud Festival performance on May 11, 2018, in Miami. During the performance Lil Pump was seen dancing to the song near the stage.
1985 (Intro to The Fall Off)
J. Cole's new album, KOD, is already getting a ton of attention from the music community today, but one of the project's standout tracks come with the final record, "1985 (Intro to 'The Fall Off')." The song, which features the Fayetteville, N.C. rap star delivering rhymes in one straight verse without a hook, sends a strong message to today's new wave rappers while hinting at another project on the horizon.
While some fans are speculating that the "Intro" title of the song could be leading to a new project called The Fall Off, others believe that the song serves as a message to an anonymous young rapper whose falloff in success could be on the way if they don't look at the bigger picture of their career.
But the North Carolina MC's most explicit attack of the new generation of rappers occurs on the song "1985 - (Intro to 'The Fall Off')." While Cole doesn't mention any names, Twitter has quickly picked apart the song and made their guesses about who he's talking about on the track.
"DID J COLE JUST INTELLECTUALLY DISS ALL THE "Lil's" ON 1985, WHO TRIED TO BEEF WITH HIM??????????? IT OVER LETS GO HOME FOLKS LETS GO HOME *Kenny's voice*," tweeted one person. "Niggas wondering who j cole dissing on 1985 whole nigga dissing everybody," another person tweeted.
Others were surprised that Cole kept his composure on the track and didn't go harder at the rappers. "Who ever '1985' was meant for, you lucky J Cole got Class. Pretty sure he could of ripped your ass apart even more," one man tweeted. "That J Cole 1985 diss where dissin the new Lil Rappers is the most Polite diss song of all time," another person wrote.
One fan even had a prediction for the future, predicting the song will elicit a response track from today's rappers. "J. Cole was preaching to these new rappers on 1985. But they won't listen and will drop a diss song with a bunch of repetitive words and sound effects," he tweeted.
Legendary hip-hop producer DJ Premier has put his own distinctive spin on J. Cole's "1985 (Intro to 'The Fall Off')," a track from the rapper's new album KOD. Writing in the SoundCloud description, Premier said he felt connected to the song, a well-meaning open letter address to rap's new generation that rapper Lil Pump treated like a diss (Cole and Pump later sat down for an interview). Premier writes: "I asked Cole if I could get the acapella and do an underground DJ version just for fun." Premier writes that he set out for his beat to "keep it on some boom bap shit," and the classic sound helps Cole's verses sound even more conciliatory. Listen below.
J. Cole had to stop the crowd at Rolling Loud Festival in Florida over the weekend from chanting "f*** Lil Pump" when he performed his track "1985 (Intro to 'The Fall Off')." So we asked Pump Wednesday at LAX, how he felt about Cole's gesture.
The Fall Off is expected to be the follow-up to Cole's 2018 album KOD, which concludes with "1985 (Intro to 'The Fall Off')" track. The rapper has been teasing the project for a minute and apparently began working on it well before KOD's release. During a 2018 interview with Angie Martinez, Cole revealed his 2016 tracks "False Prophets" and "everybody dies" were intended for The Fall Off.
Adaptation by weak backgrounds and the spatial spread of desensitization between rods was studied in the snapping turtle retina, Chelydra serpentina. Intracellular membrane potentials were recorded from these photoreceptors in an eyecup preparation. The kinetics and sensitivity of rod responses were changed significantly by large, very dim backgrounds. For the twenty-five most sensitive rods where the dark-adapted flash sensitivity, SDF, was greater than 1.0 mV/Rh*, Rh* being the number of effective photo-isomerizations per rod, the background intensity required to halve the amplitude of the linear range response averaged 0.21 Rh* s-1. The time-to-peak of the test responses was reduced up to 50% by these dim backgrounds. The desensitizing effects of full field backgrounds of various intensities on the responses to large test spots were measured. The dependence of incremental flash sensitivity, SF, on background intensity, IB, followed the form (FORMULA: SEE TEXT) where I0 is the background intensity which halved SDF. The same intensity dependence held for slit-shaped background fields that desensitized responses to small test spots. The desensitizing effects of large, very dim flashed and continuous backgrounds took several seconds to appear and decay to dark levels. This in conjunction with the sparsity of photons suggests, that the desensitization from a single photoisomerization can persist for several seconds. A comparison of the desensitizing effects of spot and annular backgrounds revealed that small spot backgrounds superimposed on the centered test spots desensitized rods more effectively than annular fields. This finding held true even when annular patterns produced a greater maintained hyperpolarization in the rods. Thus, there was no unique relationship between desensitization and the steady maintained hyperpolarization evoked by a background field. The dependence of adaptation on distance from the impaled rod was determined with slit-shaped background fields placed at different positions across the rod's receptive field. The desensitizing effect of displaced slit stimuli was found to decline much more rapidly with distance than excitation. Displacing the slit by 20 micron from the centre reduced its desensitizing effect by more than 1 log unit. In contrast, excitation fell to about 80% at the same distance (lambda ranging from 50 to 70 micron). The fall off of desensitization with distance matched the calculated fall off with distance of light scatter from a slit. No difference was noted in the kinetics of test responses in the presence of equally desensitizing, superimposed and displaced slits.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)
The focus of the issues at trial and also on appeal is the cause of Jimmy's critical condition. The parents, Virginia and James, testified Jimmy fell out of bed approximately 40 to 45 hours before he fell into a coma. They testified this fall was aggravated by a second fall from a height of approximately 24 inches off a couch one hour before Jimmy arrived at the hospital. His parents offered the expert testimony of a pediatrics neurologist that Jimmy's condition could have been caused by a fall from his bed. The San Diego County Department of Social Services offered expert testimony that Jimmy's condition could not have been caused by such a fall. They also relied upon reports submitted by other doctors and the child abuse committee which supported the testimony of their expert. 041b061a72
