It’s safe to say everyone did their own version of a happy dance when it was revealed that J.Cole would be dropping his new album 4 Your Eyes Only.
Since then, his new song “False Prophets” dropped and everyone has an opinion on who Cole may be talking about–and let’s just say, social media thinks he’s definitely taking shots at Kanye West.
One fan tweeted, “J.Cole took jabs at Kanye, while he’s recovering…y’all was up in arms when Drake dissed Cudi”
While another wrote, “Kanye has 5 classic albums and J.Cole has zero. He needs to be taking tips, not shots.”
In the song, J.Cole doesn’t name drop, however it’s understandable to see why many believe he’s taking shots at Ye.
In the first verse he says:
Yeah, life is a balance
You lose your grip, you can slip into an abyss
No doubt you see these niggas trippin’
Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star
And we can’t look away due to the days that he caught our hearts
He’s fallin’ apart, but we deny it
Justifying that half-ass shit he dropped, we always buy it
When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately
It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately
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 women, the dickriders, you know, the yes men
Nobody with the balls to say somethin’ to contest him
So he grows out of control
Into the person that he truly was all along, it’s startin’ to show
Damn, wonder what happened
Maybe it’s my fault for idolizing niggas based off the words they be rappin’
But come to find out, these niggas don’t even write they shit
Hear some new style bubblin’ up, then they bite the shit
Damn, that’s what I get for lyin’ to myself
Well, fuck it, what’s more important is he’s cryin’ out for help
While the world’s eggin’ him on, I’m beggin’ him to stop
And playin’ his old shit, knowin’ he won’t top it; false prophets
Welp, what do y’all think? Is he coming for Yeezy?? Let’s chat!
