2014 Forest Hills Drive is filled with disses
Late last night J. Cole‘s third studio album 2014 Forest Hills Drive leaked online. The project is being dissected by the masses, and as songs are being listened to, disses from the rapper are being noticed. Eminem, Drake, Macklemore, Iggy Azalea, Kendrick Lamar, Justin Timberlake, are some of the names J. Cole drops on the disc, which is slated for a December 9th release.
On the song “Fire Squad” J. Cole disses Eminem, Macklemore, Justin Timberlake, and Iggy Azalea, rapping that they are stealing “the sound” made popular by black musicians, comparing them to Elvis Presley.
History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes
Same way that these rappers always bite each others flows
Same thing that my nigga Elvis did with Rock n Roll
Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore
While silly niggas argue over who gone snatch the crown
Look around my nigga white people have snatched the sound
This year I’ll prolly go to the awards dappered down
Watch Iggy win a Grammy as I try to crack a smile
I’m just playin’, but all good jokes contain true shit
Same rope you climb up on, they’ll hang you with
But not Jermaine, my aim too sick
I bang nigga, I came to bring the pain my brain too quick
You see how I maneuver this game, I ain’t stupid
I recognize that life is a dream, and I dream lucid
And break the chains and change minds, one verse at a time
And claim that you sick, and fuck it if the truth is
Who’s the king?
On another record titled “January 28th,” J. Cole calls himself the god emcee, and mentions Drake, and Kendrick Lamar by name.
I ain’t serve no pies, I ain’t slang no dope
I ain’t bring no lies, niggas sang my quotes
I ain’t play no games, boy I ain’t no joke
Like the great Rakim, when I make my notes
You niggas might be L or you might be Kane
Or you might be Slick Rick with 19 chains
Or you might be Drizzy Drake or Kendrick Lamar
But check your birth date nigga, you ain’t the God
Nah you ain’t the God
Nigga Cole the God
