J Cole apologises to Kendrick Lamar for recent diss track

North Carolina lyricist J Cole is one of many MCs caught up in the recent feud between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. As one of the figures Lamar aimed at on the Metro Boomin’ song ‘Like That,’ Cole responded with his own diss track. However, he recently admitted he regrets making it. 

During a performance at his annual festival, the Dreamiville Fest in Raleigh’s Dorothea Dix Park on April 7th, the ‘Wet Dreamz’ emcee told fans he is proud of his most recent project, Might Delete Later but is ashamed of the song ‘7 Minute Drill.’

While taking a break onstage, Cole explained to the crowd his feelings about the mixtape, stating, “I’m so proud of that project except for one part [but] there’s one part of that sh*t that makes me feel like, ‘Man, that’s the lamest sh*t I ever did in my f*cking life.'”

Admitting he knew fans would be annoyed about his remorse, Cole continued, “I know this is not what a lot of people wanna hear. I can hear my n****s up there right now like, ‘Nah, don’t do that.’ But, I gotta keep it 100 with y’all. I damn near had a relapse.” 

Cole revealed he greatly respects both Drake and Kendrick Lamar and is saddened by the situation the three now find themselves in. He then proceeded to state that he is “blessed” to know both the pair on a personal level. 

Explaining that he wasn’t really mad when he heard ‘Like That,’ Cole revealed that, although the culture wants to see a battle, his heart isn’t in it, proclaiming, “I felt conflicted ’cause I’m like, bruh, I know I don’t really feel a way, but the world wanna see blood… so I say all of that to say, in my spirit of trying to get this music out, I moved in a way that spiritually feels bad on me.”

Opening up about his attempt to become a war emcee and effort to retaliate, Cole concluded, “I tried to jab my n*gga back, and I tried to keep it friendly. But at the end of the day, when I listen to it and when it comes out and I see the talk, that sh*t don’t sit right with my spirit.” 

Although the Dreamville founder is remorseful, Drake is not as hesitant to enter a war with Kendrick Lamar. You can see J Cole’s admission to fans below.
