Wale responded to J. Cole’s “Lost Prophets” song with “Groundhog Day”. The song reminded the Fayetteville emcee that he’s far from a false prophet, and people should respect him like a lyrical Ali or McGregor.
Wale – “Groundhog Day”
There’s no doubt that Wale is a dope emcee. And his verse pinpoints a critical moment in his career. It’s a fact that him and Cole used to open up for JAY-Z. But somehow, Cole ended up rapping a verse on “A Star Is Born”, a song off of J’s eleventh studio album, “The Blueprint 3”, in 2009. But sadly, Wale didn’t appear on it.
At the end of the day, Cole’s “Lost Prophets” isn’t a diss record, but a sentimental piece, meant to inspire a friend.
