In the realm of hip-hop, where egos clash like titans, the recent exchange between Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole has sent shockwaves through the industry. It all began with Lamar’s guest verse on Future and Metro Boomin’s track ‘Like That,’ where he didn’t hold back, taking direct aim at Drake and J. Cole for including him in their self-proclaimed ‘big three’ on their collaboration ‘First Person Shooter.’

Fans were quick to dissect Lamar’s lyrical shots, and anticipation mounted for responses from Drake and J. Cole. While Drake’s response remained somewhat veiled, J. Cole took a more direct approach, dropping a surprise project titled ‘Might Delete Later,’ where he addresses Lamar’s diss head-on.

The concluding track, ‘7 Minute Drill,’ serves as Cole’s platform for retaliation. Opening with a phone call reference, Cole dives straight into the heart of the matter, calling out Lamar’s career trajectory from his acclaimed beginnings to what he perceives as a decline. He even takes a jab at the frequency of Lamar’s ‘The Heart’ series releases, suggesting a lack of consistency.

 

But it’s not all hostility. Amidst the lyrical sparring, Cole expresses his respect for Lamar, acknowledging their shared history and stating, “Blood don’t make me have to smoke this n—a ’cause I fuck with him.”

The feud has reignited discussions among fans about who truly belongs in hip-hop’s upper echelon. Lamar‘s dismissal of the ‘big three’ notion, asserting it’s just ‘big me,’ challenges the established hierarchy, while Cole’s response aims to defend his own legacy and place in the rap pantheon.

Despite the tension, J. Cole doesn’t leave fans hanging. ‘Might Delete Later’ offers a diverse array of tracks, featuring collaborations with Ari Lennox, Gucci Mane, Bas, Central Cee, and Cam’Ron. It’s a testament to Cole’s versatility and ability to deliver regardless of the circumstances.

As the dust settles from this latest clash of rap titans, one thing is clear, that the competitive spirit of hip-hop burns brighter than ever. Whether this feud leads to further diss tracks or eventual reconciliation remains to be seen. But for now, fans can revel in the excitement of witnessing two heavyweight lyricists go bar for bar in a battle for rap supremacy.
