Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who became a polarizing figure last season for his protests during renditions of the national anthem, remains a free agent.  

Rapper J. Cole touched upon Kaepernick's inability to find a new NFL team during a stop for his "4 Your Eyez Only Tour" in Baltimore this past Sunday. 

Cole, who publicly supported Kaepernick in 2016, didn't hold back when speaking about how the Baltimore Ravens have thus far elected not to sign the 29-year-old: 

"Baltimore, the type of s--t that’s happening here, don’t you think that somebody should risk their whole livelihood and their whole life to talk about this s--t? Even if it cost them their money, their job, their life? Don’t that sound like Colin Kaepernick? Don’t that sound like what he's doing? And he's trying to come to Baltimore, the city that seems to need that s--t for real."

On Monday, Kaepernick responded to Cole via Twitter:
