J. Cole hopped on a Drake beat and fans had something to say.
Cole dropped The Off Season back in May and Drake put out Certified Lover Boy a couple weeks ago. Neither artist was featured on each other’s project, but last night, Cole dropped off a surprise for crossover fans, a quick single with Las Vegas visuals, “Heaven’s EP.” Rapping over Drizzy’s “Pipe Down” beat from CLB, Cole raps for minutes about being cut from the JV basketball team, keeping his kids out of the public eye and his place alongside Lamar and The Six God.
Rapping, “Some people say that I’m running third, they threw the bronze at me // behind Drake and Dot, yeah, them ****** is superstars to me,” the Fayetteville rapper acknowledges the narrative that it’s those three and then everybody else. And while acknowledging the subsequent narrative that he is in third place behind Drake and Kendrick (Dot), he let’s it be known that they’re superstars to him, too.
Naturally, because Cole got on a Drake beat and namedropped the Certified Lover Boy himself *and* Kendrick Lamar, fans had something to say. Chiming off on Twitter, fans reacted mostly positively to “Heaven’s EP” but as expected, there were those who needed to poke a little fun at J. Cole.
