J. Cole Disses NBA YoungBoy?

On Friday (Sept. 29), Lil Yachty released the new EP, The Secret Recipe, which features the self-titled track with J. Cole. On the song, Cole drops lines that may be a direct shot at Top.

"N***as makin' threats and I laugh, that's 'cause you ain't a threat/Don't ask how I feel 'bout no rappers, s**t, they OK, I guess," the North Carolina rhymer spits. "Incomin' call, press the button, the one that say accept/He FaceTime to ask for a feature and saw the face of death/I'm on your song, your streams goin' up, not quite the Drake effect/But don't complain, b***h, take what you get and cut the label check."
