JCole ‘drills’ Kendrick Lamar in new album

JCole drills Kendrick Lamar in new album

Just a week ago Kendrick Lamar was a surprise feature on Future and Metro Boomin’s album “We Don’t Trust You,” throwing shots at JCole and Drake. After only a day fans were already mad there was no response to the diss track from either artist. Although last night, JCole finally decided to respond.

At 12 A.M. on Friday April 5, 2024, Cole released the album “Might Delete Later,” named after a project of YouTube videos he has been working on. This album is a collection of 12 songs that he has been working on. The last song, “7 Minute Drill,” is a three minute diss track on Kendrick Lamar.

In “7 Minute Drill,” Cole calls out Kendrick, saying that he “I got a phone call, they say somebody dissin’.” He then says that Lamar’s first album was a classic, but that his most recent album was “tragic.” He also calls Lamar’s second album “To Pimp a Butterfly,” overrated, saying it put people to sleep, but they still “gassed it.” He states that Lamar’s third album was his prime, but also says that he is just coming into his prime, preparing fans for greater works in the future. The last major diss he says “He averagin’ one hard verse every thirty months or somethin’,” which is a shot at Lamar taking his time working on albums so they are perfect.

This album, especially the diss, was a complete curveball from Cole; he usually stays out of controversy. He is lighting a flame between himself and Kendrick Lamar that is going to burn very hot.
