Jermaine Lamarr Cole, better known as J. Cole, has been in the news for not only his beef with Kendrick Lamar due to his mixtape release, Might Delete Later, but his songs have been on replay for hip-hop fans who are enjoying his lyrical artistry.
Recently, Cole found himself in a tricky situation with fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar after he surprised fans with the release of his fourth mixtape, “Might Delete Later,” on April 5, 2024.
In Kendrick’s track “Like That,” he delivered a pointed verse that left fans speculating about its target. Though no names were mentioned, the reference to “the big three” sparked speculation, leading many to believe Cole was one of the intended recipients.
Leading up to the mixtape’s release, subtle hints emerged, including J. Cole’s vlogs and a notable response to Kendrick Lamar’s diss track found on the mixtape’s closing track, “7 Minute Drill.”

Check out our review of the songs on J Cole’s new mixtape, Might Delete Later. While many were disappointed after Cole ended the beef, J Cole and Kendrick’s beef is one of the moments the hip-hop world will not be forgetting anytime soon.

Unlike his previous projects, this mixtape was not released under Roc Nation but instead dropped through Dreamville and Interscope Records. Featuring 12 tracks, the album boasted collaborations with notable artists like Young Dro, Gucci Mane, Ari Lennox, and more.

The album kick-starts with a 3-artist feature in Pricey, which is more about Self-assessment and self-recognition.

Lyrics Check:

“I think fast ’cause niggas that be tardy get detention.

I got bars forever, nigga, never will a call drop.

Still the hardest nigga on the planet earth from January.

Just like the Vegas strip, blowin’ through chips, I’m rich, bitch, I’m rich…”



In Crocodile Tearz, J. Cole also underscores his own persona but with a more poised demeanor.

Lyrics Check:

“Yeah, said I was finished but I’m on another two summers.

Hall of famer, hungrier than all the newcomers.

Hey, tell the label I got A’s all throughout math, That mean I’m keen on the numbers and I count fast.

Chopped off the top, nigga, I achieved somethin’…”


  • READY ‘24

Lyrics Check:

“I’ma do it now, I told mama I’ma do her proud.

I do what I want, you niggas do what you allowed.

Cole World, I got too much style.

I aimed for the stars and hit, shit was a long shot…”



Lyrics Check:

“Hey, Jermaine, I know you’re on the road, I know you’re on your best rapper alive shit…

We ain’t guaranteed to see a better day, better day, uh…”


  • PI

Lyrics Check:

“Pray to the heaven, God, with no disguise…

Like three wise men pulled up to cherish my birth…

You know my zone, I live here at the top…”



The supposed diss track serves as a blistering clap-back towards Kendrick for the understated insults directed towards him.

However, this past weekend, just under 48 hours after its release, Cole took to the stage at his Dreamville Festival in Raleigh and issued an apology to Kendrick for 7 Minute Drill.

J.Cole later stated, “That’s the lamest shit I ever did in my fucking life”.

Lyrics Check:

“It’s a cold world, keep the heat under your seat.

He still doin’ shows, but fell off like the Simpsons.

Your first shit was classic, your last shit was tragic.

He averagin’ one hard verse like every thirty months or somethin’…”
