J. Cole has given Hip-Hop heads something to talk about at breakfast this morning with his new songs “Everybody Gotta Die” and “False Prophets.”
In a year where rappers have been talking reckless every other week, J. Cole has appeared to bookend 2016 by calling out rappers without saying any names. In an “if the shoe fit wears it” kind of way, J. Cole’s newest songs make observations about the mindstate of rappers nowadays more so that the status of the culture itself.
With “Everybody Gotta Die” many fans are assuming that he is dissing every other rapper on the 2016 XXL Freshman list. While on “False Prophets” the consensus has ruled that he is talking about Kanye West and Wale.
A few people have thrown Drake’s name into the fray, but that’s highly unlikely given that Cole just appeared with on stage him during one of the Summer Sixteen tour stops.
Here’s what people are assuming on Twitter.
