J. Cole Fires Back at Kendrick Lamar's Diss with "7 Minute Drill" on Surprise Album

In a rap battle brewing between J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar, Cole retaliates with his latest track, “7 Minute Drill,” from his surprise album “Might Delete Later.” The feud escalated after Lamar’s diss track “Like That,” where he called out Cole’s claim of being part of rap’s “big three” alongside Drake. Referring to Lamar and Drake as “bums,” Lamar dismissed their league.

Cole’s response on “7 Minute Drill” doesn’t hold back, with lyrics directly addressing Lamar’s jabs. He kicks off the song with “I got a phone call, they say that somebody dissin’,” setting the tone for his clapback. Employing imagery from pop culture, Cole compares Lamar’s career trajectory to “The Simpsons,” implying a decline in quality from classic to tragic.

The diss track touches on Lamar’s album output, Grammy wins, and relevance in the rap scene. Cole questions Lamar’s prime, suggesting he’s now trailing behind while Cole is hitting his stride. The comparison to “The Simpsons” as a metaphor for Lamar’s career decline adds weight to Cole’s argument, despite some criticism that the show has regained its footing in recent years.

The feud between the two rappers began with Cole’s mention of the “big three” in Drake’s album “For All the Dogs,” prompting Lamar’s response in “Like That.” While the diss track adds fuel to the fire, Cole’s surprise album features a lineup of guest artists, including Ari Lennox, Gucci Mane, and Young Dro, showcasing a diverse range of collaborations beyond the feud.
