The internet speculated that the second verse of False Prophets was about the D.C. rapper because of this verse:
“I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had/ By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin’/ Talkin’ ’bout, n*ggas don’t fuck with him, the shit is depressin”
In a song titled Groundhog Day, Wale responded to the reference.
“I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet,” starts Wale, later rapping, “I remember me and Cole would open for Hov / Everyday a star is born / I guess I died in the womb.”
Apparently, neither rapper took the exchange of words to heart. Hours after dropping their respective tracks, Wale tweeted a video of himself and Cole at a basketball game. The video shows both rappers in good spirits, shrugging off any possible rumors of beef between them. In a hilarious moment, Cole, who remains purposely out of touch with social media, asks whether or not Wale is videotaping a Snapchat.
It’s good to see their friendship has remained in tact. Listen to Wale’s “Groundhog Day” below:
