J. Cole’s Eyez documentary stirred the pot with a lot of a controversy. The documentary featured two unreleased tracks, “False Prophets” and “Everybody Dies.” Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert appear to be the targets on “Everybody Dies,” while many feel Kanye West and Wale were the topics of J. Cole’s “False Prophets.” With the opening verse filled with various references to Kanye’s Yeezus, fans across social media felt the second verse was directed targeted at Wale.
J. Cole raps, “And I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings/Goddamn, ni**a, you too blind to see you got fans, ni**a/And a platform to make a classic rap song/To change a ni**a life, but you too anxious living’ life, always worried ‘bout the critics who ain’t ever f**kin’ did it/I write what’s in my heart, don’t give a f**k who f**kin’ with it/But in a sense I can relate, the need to be great/Turns into an obsession keeps a ni**a up late.”
But within 48 hours after the release of Cole’s new documentary, Wale decides to respond with a brand new track called, “Groundhogs Day”, which is produced by Jake One.
The track has Wale expresses his thoughts on Cole’s subliminal verse and their past friendship. The track concludes with love and a call-out at how he’ll be catching J. Cole at the basketball game.
