Rap newcomer Diggy Simmons has come forward to address the newly leaked "What You Say To Me" diss record and admitted his anti-J. Cole track is indeed legit.
Despite leaking on April Fool's Day, Diggy said the words are indeed from his mouth.
"[There's] no big story behind it, it was really just that my sister [Vanessa] over a year ago told me that [J. Cole] was saying that he did this, that and third with her, 'cus the went to the same college, but they didn't really know each other like that, so it wasn't like that," he said. "She also told me that he subliminally talked about her in a song called 'Purple Rain,' which was also false. So it was just me sticking up for my family, that's all that it really was. I didn't even leak it, it got leaked last night while I was at the movies...I did that record last year...I was gonna put it out, but I didn't feel like it was appropriate, but of course, that's my sister...family over everything. [My dad Reverend Run] had already heard the track and he was like the same thing: 'Family over everything, that's your sister,' so he wasn't mad at all." (99.1 FM)
A couple days ago, the rapper's father also backed up his diss track.
"J Cole.. Puts out 2 records Dissing family & Diggy & nobody cared.. Some1 leaks a old Diggy record & there's a problem?," he tweeted April 1st. (Reverend Run's Twitter)
Diggy's new "What You Say To Me" diss landed online, coincidentally, April 1st.
"The other day I was listening to 'Purple Rain,' couldn't believe all of the things that I heard em say/Who dat, who dat, you know who it is, heard you lying on my sis, tellin people that you hit when your album drops I'ma hit you with your bricks, so I'ma bomb first on you since you wanna riff/Who you gonna call, you ain't got no friends, this fight is fixed, you ain't got no wins/Little n*gga named Cole think he live like me, jet setter trend setter, yeah you not like me/Can't find a girl that you know that do not like me, can't find a girl I know, who know you, you dumb fool/Wasn't even poppin' in the school you used to go to." ("What You Say To Me")
The track is his response toward Cole's "Grew Up Fast."
"Move along cock-sucker, ain't got nothing to see, 'less you talking blockbuster, you n*ggas is not Russell/You more Diggy, Me, I'm more Biggie/No diss to the young boy, I'm just rapping, get bored quickly" ("Grew Up Fast")
