It’s pretty clear by now that J. Cole took aim at Kanye West on “False Prophets.” I wouldn’t call it a “diss track” really, but it certainly wasn’t a nice one. While Ye isn’t around to defend his name, it appeared that famed producer Mike Dean, who’s tight with Ye, wanted to do so for him:

“why do artists who are lacking always make a diss song just before their LP comes out??”

Cole certainly is dropping a project on Friday, so if the shoe fits….! However, he later clarified that he wasn’t aiming at Cole. See what he said in the gallery. Do you believe him, or think he’s just saving face after getting called out?
