J. Cole dropped his Eyez documentary yesterday and had everyone and their mama talking about it. Included in the 40 minute clip were two never heard before songs — ‘Everybody Dies’ and ‘False Prophets’. While the latter was allegedly aimed at Kanye West, the former had plenty of jabs at “lil whatever” rappers.
Cole raps on the song:
“The OG gatekeep rappers
The would-you-take-a-break-please rappers
Bunch of words and ain’t sayin’ sh*t, I hate these rappers
Especially the amateur eight week rappers
Lil’ whatever, just another short bus rapper”
Fans on social media think the lyrics were aimed at “mumble rappers” like Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert but more specifically Yachty since he once tweeted “F*ck J. Cole” back in 2011. In a backstage interview with the Power 106 crew at their Cali Christmas show on Friday night, Lil Boat was asked about his opinion on ‘Everybody Dies’ and whether he thinks Cole was taking shots at him. Yachty says he doesn’t listen to J. Cole’s music but doesn’t have a problem with him either. Watch it above.
