J.Cole Apologizes For Diss

Rapper J. Cole issued a public apology for his diss track aimed at Kendrick Lamar, expressing remorse and a willingness to update or remove the song from streaming platforms. The feud originated from J. Cole and Drake referring to themselves and Lamar as the “big three” in hip-hop on “First Person Shooter,” which Kendrick Lamar dismissed on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That.” In response, J. Cole released the diss track “7 Minute Drill” on his surprise album “Might Delete Later,” but publicly expressed spiritual discomfort with the response just two days after its release at the Dreamville Festival in Raleigh, N.C. Despite the apology, “7 Minute Drill” remained available on streaming services, and Drake indirectly addressed Lamar’s verse at a concert in Florida, affirming confidence in his own status within the hip-hop community.
