J. Cole takes the mature route after dissing Kendrick Lamar on his freestyle, 7 Minute Drill, explaining how terrible the diss track made him feel.

Last month, the world witnessed Kendrick Lamar's rage in his feature on Metro Booming and Future's 'Like That,' the song featured on their joint album WE DON'T TRUST YOU. After the album dropped, rap fans knew the divide it would cause in the game, so they began to compare the diss to Captain America's Civil Wars.

The beef between Drake and Kendrick has always been a few jabs with no actual harm but recently on Drake's First Person Shooter J. Cole referred to himself, Kendrick and J. Cole as the big three - unfortunately that didn't sit well with Kendrick. How did Kendrick Lamar reply, with this:

Motherfuck the big three, nigga, it’s just big me
Nigga, bum, what? I’m really like that
And your best work is a light pack
Nigga, Prince outlived Mike Jack'
Nigga, bum, ’fore all your dogs gettin’ buried
That’s a K with all these nines, he gon’ see Pet Sematary
Nigga, bum
- Kendrick Lamar, Like That

J Cole took offence to the jab by Kendrick and decided to release a surprise album titled 'Might Delete Later.' On this album, J Cole had something to say to Kendrick, calling it a warning shot.

“I got a phone call, they say that somebody dissing/ You want some attention, it comes with extensions,”
- J. Cole, 7 Minute Drill

Realizing what he had done, J. Cole took the mature approach by apologising for the beef. During his show at the Dreamville Festival, Cole called his response  "lame" and "goofy."

"I am so proud of that project except for one part. It's one part of that shit that makes me feel like that's one of the lamest shit I have did in my fucking life," Cole said.

"I was conflicted because I know my heart and I know the two rappers I have been blessed to stand beside...I won't lie to you all, I moved in a way I feel spiritually bad...I try to keep it friendly but at the end of the day when I listen to it and when I see the talk, that shit doesn't sit well with me and it disrupts my spirit."
