Diddy + J. Cole Officially Bury The Hatchet Over 2013 Fight
Just in case it wasn’t clear, hip-hop mogul Diddy and Grammy-winning rapper J. Cole have moved past any old beef. Lyrics from Cole’s new The Off-Season album brought back memories of the two music icons throwing hands years ago, but Diddy’s social media post Wednesday suggests there are no more ill feelings.
On J. Cole’s song “Let Go Of My Hand” from The Off-Season, he raps about a fight he got into with Diddy back in 2013. Bringing it up on the new album sparked rumors of J. Cole and S. Combs still having static, but Diddy recently posted an Instagram pic to squash any further speculation.
“With LOVE. 🖤✨💫 @realcoleworld”
J. Cole + Diddy Clashed Over Kendrick Lamar
On the eyebrow-raising record, Dreamville boss J. Cole mentions what went down eight years ago. Coincidentally, Puff Daddy’s vocals are featured on the same record.
“My last scrap was with Puff Daddy, who would’ve thought it? / I bought that n**** album in seventh grade and played it so much / You would’ve thought my favorite rapper was Puff.”
Although Cole doesn’t get into it, the rumored cause of the fight has always been centered around his friend Kendrick Lamar.
