J. Cole set the Hip-Hop world on fire with news his surprise album, then threw gas on it when he fered rhymes critical Kanye West and Wale on a song called “False Prophets.” The latter has already responded in kind with a song called “Groundhog Day.”
“I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet,” says Wale on the intro the Jake One-produced cut.
Then he gets to spittin’: “The most highly underrated my generation, behind them crooked smiles niggas neglect to embrace me.”
The rest verse covers everything from being “lost at Interscope,” having suicidal thoughts and being misunderstood by the press.
There’s a lot rewind-worthy material on here, so maybe the real talk from Cole got Wale extra-focused?
So be it, so long as the culture gets bars.
Listen to “Groundhog Day” below.
