Earlier today, J. Cole once again silently revealed a brand new 40-minute, behind-the-scenes documentary exclusively on Tidal, just a day after silently revealing his new album “For Your Eyez Only” would drop a week form today on December 7.
Around the 30-mintue mark of his new documentary “Eyez,” Cole previews a cut from his album titled “False Prophets“. In the track, the NC-based rapped seemingly gets at Kanye West:
Life is a balance/You lose your grip you could 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 when he caught our hearts/He’s falling apart but we deny it/ Justifying the half-assed shit he drop, 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 is fake
The women, the dickriders, you know, the yes men/ Nobody with the balls to say something to contest him/So it grows out of control/ Until the person that he truly was all along is starting to show
Next, he gets at rappers who use ghostwriters; Drake?
“Wonder what happened/Maybe it’s my fault for idolizing niggas based off the words that they be rappin’/But come to find out these niggas don’t even write they own shit/Hear some new style bubbling up then they bite that shit.”
You can hear it in the documentary here around the 30:00 mark.
