“I’m heavily flawed but far from a false prophet/I’m a motherfucking honorable Folarin”
Wale didn’t waste any time addressing J. Cole. After Cole announced the December 9th release of his new album “4 Your Eyez Only,” Jermaine also dropped his “Eyez” documentary exclusively on Tidal. In the doc Cole gave us snippets of two songs including “False Prophets” which seems to
throw shots address rappers Kanye West, Drake and Wale.

A day after Cole’s release, Wale responds with the track “Groundhog Day.” In the track Wale talks about both opening for Jay Z and his time with Interscope records.
“I remember me and Cole would open for Hov/Every day a star is born/ I guess I died in the womb/I ain’t make it on blueprint so made me a blueprint you got you a nice watch/My minutes was finished/I was lost at Interscope,”
Wale also speaks about Kid Cudi and more but of course since Cole is the hot topic, that’s the buzz. Listen to the track above.
And just like that… J. Cole and Wale spotted together… Gotta love Hip-Hop
