This is a message for anybody in this game that’s going through something. If you don’t feel right, if you feel you have a substance problem, if you need a ear to vent to. If you uncomfortable talking to people around you. Please reach out to me.— J. Cole (@JColeNC) September 7, 2018
Mac Miller's death speaks to a lot of what J. Cole's latest album "KOD" speaks on. Which has three meanings, one of which is "Kids On Drugs". During his show on Saturday, Cole spoke on his message further saying,
“People die, today, yesterday, and tomorrow, they die, and they never got a chance to deal with their shit,” he said. “They never even knew they were supposed to. I’m not trying to wait till I die to deal with my shit. I’m trying to deal with my shit right f*cking now.”

Never seen cole cry. But Mac Miller's death really hit him. Kids on drugs is what his whole KOD album was about. One of his greatest albums yet. The message is to stay away from drugs. Please people. Save your own lives. pic.twitter.com/oW1PbZp7iH— ARKAD (@ivanefosa) September 9, 2018
