Did Wale And J.Cole Squash Their Feud Already?
Just days after J.Cole and Wale put their true feelings about each other on wax for the culture, the two appeared to have hashed it out. The rappers were spotted hanging out a college basketball game Saturday night, (Dec. 3) and if there were any hard feelings between them, the Internet couldn’t tell.
Fans immediately took to Twitter after they saw Wale and Cole sitting in the bleachers together at a Boston University vs. North Carolina State basketball game, and by the looks of fan pictures, they seemed to be getting along just fine, as if they hadn’t just gone head to head days before.
The friendly outing comes shortly after Wale released his diss track, “Groundhog Day” on Dec. 3, in which he took shots at Cole. “The most highly underrated of my generation/Behind them crooked smiles n****s neglect to embrace me,” he rapped in one of the lines. The DC native also took aim at Cole’s biracial upbringing, spitting: “Not to cause a situation but what side of my biracial friends call me they n***a/Forget it.” Although Wale went in on the Born Sinner artist, he managed to end on a lighter note, calling Cole his “brother” and noting that he still “bumps” his music.
Wale’s “Groundhog Day” was a direct message to J. Cole’s “False Prophets,” which he debuted a little more than 24 hrs before on Dec. 2 during his 40-minute documentary Eyez. “And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings/Goddamn, n***a, you too blind to see you got fans, n***a/And a platform to make a classic rap song/To change a n***a life, but you too anxious living’ life/Always worried ‘bout the critics who ain’t ever f****n’ did it,” he rapped. Cole also reportedly took shots at Kanye, whom is currently in some sort of crisis, calling out Ye for his ego.
J. Cole and Wale may have been spitting some heat on those tracks, but it’s good to see they can put the rap beef aside and enjoy a good game of basketball together. Drake and Meek Mill may want to take note.
