J. Cole dropped two new songs off his new album “4 Eyes Only” due next week. On one song titled “False Prophet” he apparently went at Kanye West & Wale, a lot of people said that he dissed them but I call it a general assessment of all the fakes going on in the industry today.
Today Wale dropped his response track to acknowledge what J. Cole said about him was the truth. J. Cole’s line was “I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had/ By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin’/ Talkin’ ’bout, n*ggas don’t fuck with him, the shit is depressin”
It seems that Wale also felt Cole’s words were meant for him, as he’s returned with a response to the track in the form of the Jake One-produced “Groundhog Day.”
“I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet,” starts Wale, later rapping, “I remember me and Cole would open for Hov / Everyday a star is born / I guess I died in the womb.”
Further along, he acknowledges Cole’s track head-on. “I just heard a song about me on a hip hop blog / from a kid I know / some n*ggas say a hip hop God / it hit home, ’cause this some truth.”
Still, there’s no bad blood between them. “I love my brother though / that’s why it’s rest in piece to Tommy / we still bumpin’ Cole.”
