Well, J. Cole’s scathing new songs are certainly getting into the head of one particular rapper. A mere day after Cole debuted the track “False Prophets” in his surprise documentary Eyez, which took aim at two rappers  presumably Wale and Kanye West  for their negative contributions to the current rap culture, Wale has decidedly fought back with a scathing new song of his own. Titled “Groundhog Day,” the rapper responds to J. Cole’s various disses (which included “and I know he so bitter he can’t see his own blessings” and “you too blind to see you got fans,” among others) in the three-minute track. “I remember me and Cole would open for Hov, everyday a star is born I guess I died in the womb,” Wale raps. “I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet, I’m a motherfucking honorable Folarin, Cassius, Mohammad, McGregor Connor this rap artist.” Kanye, meanwhile, might not be so quick with a response.
