Is J. Cole Taking A Long Subliminal Shot At Kanye On ‘False Prophet’?
Although we’re still seven days away from J. Cole’s new album 4 Your Eyez Only, the Roc Nation rapper has already started to roll the project out.
The North Carolina native released a 40-minute documentary called Eyez, where he provides details about the album and takes fans behind the scenes.
But what everybody’s going to be talking about is a new track he debuts, ‘False Prophet, in which he seemingly takes a pretty mighty subliminal shot at Kanye West.
Yeah, life is a balance
You lose your grip, you can slip into an abyss
No doubt you see these niggas trippin’
Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star
And we can’t look away due to the days that he caught our hearts
He’s fallin’ apart, but we deny it
Justifying that half-ass shit 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 nigga was my hero, maybe
That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take
‘Cause I believed him when he said his shit was purer and he
The type of nigga swear he real but all around him’s fake
The women, the dickriders, you know, the yes men
Nobody with the balls to say somethin’ to contest him
So he grows out of control
Into the person that he truly was all along, it’s startin’ to show
In another part of the documentary, the camera finds Cole in New York City’s Electric Lady Studios crafting the new album and talking about his career and how big it’s become.
“First of all, you get to this height or this level of your career, in terms of platform, who’s to say the next one, the next one might go down. It could go up,” he explained. “You’re never guaranteed to be this high again, and while I’m here let me use this opportunity to say the realist shit I’ve ever said.”
