When J. Cole released “False Prophets,” it was clear Kanye was one of the people he was talking about, but he also addressed Wale, but not as a diss. Cole more so talked about Wale’s actions, and related it to how a lot of younger people think, how they forget to acknowledge the blessings in front of them.
“And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings/Goddamn, nigga, you too blind to see you got fans, nigga/And a platform to make a classic rap song/To change a nigga life, but you too anxious living’ life/Always worried ‘bout the critics who ain’t ever fuckin’ did it/I write what’s in my heart, don’t give a fuck who fuckin’ with it/But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great/Turns into an obsession keeps a nigga up late.”
Wale responded with his song “Groundhog Day,” while In the song he discusses topics surrounding his mental health while also taking shots at Cole involving Jay Z, and more. But towards the end, its clear there is no real issues between the two.
Battling anxiety and privately them percocets/ Purchased like 30 of them, murdered them in like 30 hours/ Weight of the world on my shoulders I bet I military press/ I remember me and Cole would open for Hov/ Everyday a star is born, I guess I died in the womb/ I ain’t make it on Blueprint, so made me a blueprint/ You got you a nice watch, my minutes was finished/
