J Cole Wakes Up The Hip Hop World
King Cole, one of our future Hip Hop legends is one of the few who not only sets social media ablaze, but also the world of Hip Hop whenever he grabs a mic and speaks. This time he’s done it with two new tracks entitled “Everybody Gotta Die” and “False Prophets”, the latter of which spills his true feelings on the state of fellow artist Kanye West and Wale.
On West, Cole expresses his feelings of disappoint with lyrics like:
“There was a time when this nigga was my hero, maybe
That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take
‘Cause I believed him when he said his shit was purer and he
The type of nigga swear he real but all around him’s fake”
The streets are divided on whether this is a diss track or whether it’s simply a track of truth… For us over at 5thandPratt, it lacks any malicious intent and truth is, we all are extremely disappointed, saddened even in the Yeezy we know today. However, the track and accompanying video was released just days after Kanye was released from UCLA Medical Center after struggling with extreme paranoia.
The D.C. rapper Wale addressed the track with a freestyle of his own , entitled “Groundhog Day” in which he reminisces on coming up with J. Cole and opens up about his own mental health issues.
“I know since I got my deal and shit got real
I ain’t been the easiest nigga to deal with
I’m heavily flawed!
But far from a false prophet
I’m a mufucking honorable Folarin
Cassius, Muhammad, McGregor, Conor of these rap artists
Why you targeting?”
Cole also addressed ‘Mumble Rappers’, and whomever else he choose to be his lyrical victim on the track “Everybody Gotta Die.”
“Bunch of words and ain’t sayin’ shit, I hate these rappers
Especially the amateur eight week rappers
Lil’ whatever, just another short bus rapper
Fake drug dealers turn tour bus trappers
Napoleon complex, you this tall rappers
Get exposed standin’ next to 6’4″ rappers
The streets don’t fuck with you, you Pitchfork rappers
Chosen by the white man, you hipstor rappers”
