The Roc Nation rapper released his “Eyez” documentary on TIDAL today and its already blowing up on social media with Cole taking a few shots at some unnamed rappers that fans are saying are Ye and Drizzy. He is also getting ready to release his new album “4 Your Eyez Only.”
Fans are already dissecting the lyrics from “False Prophets” while suggesting that he could be taking shots at Kanye West. Drake is also one of the other names that came up in the discussion on who J. Cole is rapping about.
“Due to the days that he caught our hearts / He’s fallin’ apart, but we deny it / Justifying that half-ass sh*t he dropped, we always buy it When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately / It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately / There was a time when this ni**a was my hero, maybe / That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take,” J. Cole raps.
The line about “caught our hearts” seems to be referencing Kanye West’s “808s & Heartbreak.” While Cole went on to rap about the unnamed rapper being his idol but is now falling apart. Ye recently spent some time in the hospital after having a nervous break down. His last two concerts ended prematurely after he went on an impromptu rant about Beyonce and Jay Z not being inside his circles of friends anymore. He also reference in the verse that his former rap idol will never topped his old material. There is no doubt that Kanye West has some classic albums.
One other line that caught the attention of rap fans is “Based off the words they be rappin’ / But come to find out, these ni**as don’t even write they sh*t / Hear some new style bubblin’ up, then they bite the sh*t.” Those lines seems to be a direct shot at Drake.
