It was all good just a few months ago…
Earlier this year, Diggy Simmons released a diss record titled, ‘What you Say’, aimed at J. Cole after he heard a 2010 track where Cole subliminally rapped about hooking up with Diggy’s sister Vanessa while in college. [You can hear that here]. After the Diggy track was released, J. Cole stayed relatively quiet and the two called a truce back in July.
Everything seemed kosher until this past weekend, when J. Cole fired the beef back up. While performing on the BET’s Music Matters tour with Kendrick Lamar in Charlotte, he spit a freestyle taking shots at Diggy:
‘Picture me hating on a young ni–a with talent
Album flopped, but it’s cool, he caked out on his allowance…’
Soon after, word got back to Tyrese who hopped on Twitter and took a shot at J. Cole, while defending Diggy:
“Sh-t ain’t gonna fly no more…J Cole…Diggy is family…Sh-t ain’t flyin!
Meanwhile, Diggy has released a track on The Breakfast Club this morning called ‘Fall Down’, in which he responded to J. Cole:
Don’t know how any grown rapper would consider me a subject
And I ain’t even got my first Benz sitting on dubs yet
I guess I rattled you, snaggletooth
You know better
Thought J stood for Jermaine, not Jet Setter
You seen me and shook my hand, coppin’ pleas in person
Now you whack, less than a man, mention me in verses.
You used to have dreams of my big sister kissin’ ya
now it’s nightmares of a lil’ brotha dissin’ ya.
Sneak disses and jabs, I don’t really see the benefit
But I guess you lame enough, probably keep you relevant
Maybe you should have signed with me, instead of Mr. Carter
He wrapped up the verse with the line:
‘This verse may as well be a hearse, Killed you and ain’t even curse, n-gga’.
This is all quite funny and ridiculous. If they were both on the same label, I’d call a conspiracy. Why is a 17 year old who grew up in the lap of luxury beefing with anyone? And why won’t J. Cole go and pick on someone his own size?
So many questions..
