Wale responds to J. Cole’s ‘Lost Prophets’ with ‘Groundhog Day’

Wale responds to J. Cole’s ‘Lost Prophets’ song with ‘Groundhog Day’, where he reminds the Fayetteville emcee that he’s far from a false prophet, and people should respect him like a lyrical Ali or McGregor. There’s no doubt that Wale is a dope emcee, and his verse pinpoints a critical moment in his career; where him and Cole used to open up for Jay-Z. Somehow, Cole ended up rapping a verse on ‘A Star Is Born’, a song off of Jay-Z’s eleventh studio album, ‘The Blueprint 3’ in 2009, but sadly, Wale didn’t appear on it.

[Verse]
The most highly underrated of my generation
Behind them crooked smiles ni^^as neglect to embrace me
Respect is in order now
My liquor is more to y’all
You throwing little shots, we catching some cases
Lot of ni^^as hate to love me or they love to hate me
Labelled as reckless and crazy by my record label
And I can say it’s bipolar disorder
He diagnosing me wrong
It’s obviously depressing counting blue faces
Hey, here go that real shit
Battling anxiety and privately them percocets
Purchased like 30 of them, murdered them in like 30 hours
Weight of the world on my shoulders I bet I military press
I remember me and Cole would open for Hov
Everyday a star is born, I guess I died in the womb
I ain’t make it on Blueprint, so made me a blueprint
You got you a nice watch, my minutes was finished
I was lost at Interscope
Contemplating on copping a block from Benning Road
Thoughts of suicide cause who gon want you alive when Ni^^as you used to ride with cry with all that high shit
Talking down in they interviews
I ain’t forget that Scott
Only difference is I didn’t get no sympathy calls to get back up
I just heard a song about me on a hip-hop blog from a kid I know
Some niggas say a hip-hop god
It hit home cause there’s some truth, this I know
This ace I go, I get psycho when shit get dark
Boy when shit dark
Like Laurene Powell I’ve gotten married to a job
I drop my jewels, spit my bars, I get mine off, I be pissed off
Should get more props but still I
Pimp hard, drink hard liquor to forget my thoughts
Push 3 buttons I make the joint spin, Balrog
Hoes say I’m the realest
Most hated on Twitter
Not to cause a situation but what side of my biracial friends call me they ni^^a?
Forget it
I’m jive tripping
But my skin is made of chocolate, a copper’s bullets is diabetic
My mind busy, I’m sad daily though I deal with it
My therapist terrible, I’m a terp in mellow trembling
Real subtle though
Tell them ni^^as Shine coming they in trouble though
I love my brother though
I love my brother though
That’s why it’s rest in peace to Tommy we still bumping Cole

At the end of the day, Cole’s ‘Lost Prophets’ isn’t a diss record. It is a sentimental piece, meant to inspire a friend.
