J. Cole Regrets Kendrick Lamar Diss – Apologizes.

J Cole says he “felt terrible” after releasing a track aimed at Kendrick Lamar last week, and says he’s pulling the track off streaming services.

“7 Minute Drill”, Cole’s song was a reply to Lamar’s verse on the hit single Like That”, in which the star asserted his dominance of the rap game.

Cole hit back by saying Lamar had “fallen off like the Simpsons” and called his latest album “tragic”.

While addressing the crowd during a headlining performance at his Dreamville Festival in North Carolina on Sunday (April 7). He said he had felt pressured to write a comeback.

“Y’all heard that bazooka that was dropped on the game, right? Boy, I must have had a thousand missed calls. Texts flooded.”

Friends and colleagues were calling it “war time” and said they wanted to “see blood,” he explained.

“I was conflicted because… I know how I feel about my peers, these two [rappers] that I’ve been blessed to even stand beside… But the world want to see blood.”

He went on to praise Lamar’s back catalogue, calling him “one of the greatest”, and hoping that he hadn’t taken offence.

“And if he did, I got my chin out. Take your best shot, I’ll take that on the chin.”

“I’m so proud of [‘Might Delete Later’], except for one part,” said Cole. “It’s one part of that shit that makes me feel like, man that’s the lamest shit I did in my fuckin’ life, right? And I know this is not what a lot of people want to hear.”
