J. Cole Fires Shots at Kendrick Lamar in New Diss Track


The hip-hop community is abuzz with speculation following the release of J. Cole’s latest diss track, “7 Minute Drill,” which appears to target fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar. 

This comes on the heels of Lamar’s recent verse on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That,” where he seemingly took shots at both Drake and J. Cole, reigniting long-standing tensions in the rap industry.

Drake vs. Kendrick Lamar:

The feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar dates back to at least 2013, marked by Lamar’s provocative verse on “Control,” where he asserted his intent to surpass his contemporaries, including Drake, in the rap game. 

Despite past collaborations, including appearances on each other’s albums, tensions have simmered beneath the surface, with fans dissecting lyrics for perceived jabs.

Both Drake and Kendrick Lamar have cemented their status as leading figures in modern rap, each boasting impressive accolades and a loyal fanbase. While Lamar’s critical acclaim and Grammy wins underscore his artistic prowess, Drake’s commercial success and dominance in music sales and streaming highlight his unparalleled influence in the industry.

Interpretation and Response of Deciphering Subtext:

Throughout the years, fans have scrutinized lyrics from both artists, seeking to discern hidden messages and subtle disses aimed at their rival. 

From Drake’s veiled references in features to Lamar’s pointed remarks on tracks like “King Kunta,” the ongoing feud has captivated audiences eager to witness a lyrical showdown between two rap heavyweights.

Lamar’s Artistry vs. Drake’s Commercial Dominance:

While Lamar’s work garners praise for its depth and social commentary, Drake’s chart-topping hits and record-breaking achievements in sales and streaming paint a contrasting picture. 

Despite their differing approaches, both artists command immense respect and admiration within the hip-hop community.
