Hip-hop pioneer Reverend Run has come to the defense of Diggy Simmons in light of an unexpected diss track directed toward Roc Nation protege J. Cole emerging online.
In Rev's eyes, he is surprised the diss has shocked hip-hop heads despite past shots toward his family courtesy of Cole.
"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 believed to be a 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")
No stranger to getting dissed, Cole recently got put on blast by Harlem rapper Charles Hamilton.
"I remember when I met you, you was dissin' Jay/ Sh*t bothered me anyway/It's not that I didn't like him, I just heard rumors/ And I heard you was my junior/ Throwin' up the Roc sign/I assumed that you knew what it meant/Apparently, you didn't/N*gga you was fishin', barely was livin'/ And I'm the one who put you in your new position/Just remember, n*gga -- Diss me back, I'm waiting on the diss track/I ain't Drizzy, but I will rip a track and diss you on it/On this, I vomit, sh*t and comment/A grip, palm it, get off of my d*ck..." ("J. Cole Diss")
