It has been a fiery few weeks in hip-hop, with tons of stray shots thrown and even more on wax. Well, more fuel was added to the fire recently when legendary producer Mike Dean subtweeted J. Cole following his “False Prophets” track, which sent some shots right at Dean’s protege, Kanye West.
why do artists who are lacking always make a diss song just before their LP comes out??

He definitely has a point, as it was a timely decision for Cole to drop that track with the announcement of a new project dropping so soon. I wouldn’t necessarily say J. Cole is “lacking,” but in terms of extravagance in creativity on an album, he definitely doesn’t come close to West.
Either way, we’re excited to hear what 4YourEyezOnly sounds like, and you should be too.
