J. Cole Feels Bad for Dissing Kendrick Lamar on “7 Minute Drill: ‘Lame’ and ‘Terrible’

He continued:

“It’s one part on that shit that make me feel like, ‘Man, that’s the lamest shit I ever did. in my fucking life’ right? And, I know, this is not what a lot of people want to hear… I can hear my n***as up there right now like… ‘Nahhh, don’t do that.’ But, I gotta keep it 100 with y’all. I damn near had a relapse, right? Because, y’all heard some shit that happened two-three weeks ago, however long it was… Y’all heard that bazooka that was dropped on the motherfucking game. “

Cole went on:

“So all this time of me moving on my own accord for the first time, I was tested. Why am I tested? Cause i got the world and i got my n*** like whatcha gonna do Cole? Boy I must have had a thousand missed calls oh my fucking god. Texts flooded. I couldn’t answer my shit. N*** it’s war time. n**** wanna see blood and I was conflicted because one, I know my heart. I know how I feel about my peers, these two n*** that I been blessed to stand beside in this game let alone chase their greatness. So I felt conflicted cause like bruh I don’t really feel no way but the world wanna see blood. I don’t know if y’all can feel that but the world wanna see blood.”

Cole then referenced Kendrick directly by name, and labeled his response a “misstep” that he classified as being “lame.”

“Y’all love Kendrick Lamar correct. As do I. so I just wanna come up here and publicly be like bruh, that was the lamest goofiest shit, and I say all that to say it made me feel like 10 years ago when I was moving incorrectly, and I pray that god will line me back up on my purpose and my path, i pray that my n** didnt feel no way and if he did my n*** I got my chin out, take your best shot ima take that shit on the chin boy do what you do. all good. It’s love. and I pray that y’all are like forgive a n***a for the misstep and I can get back to my true path cause I ain’t gonna lie to y’all the past two days felt terrible.”
