In an interview on Power 106 Friday, Lil Yachty was asked about his thoughts on J. Cole’s speculated diss on “Everybody Dies.” Not only was he not phased by the lyrics, Boat said that he doesn’t even listen to Jermaine.
“It was cool,” he said. “I don’t listen to J. Cole. I definitely listened to it. It definitely flooded my shit. It was everywhere.”
On “Everybody Dies,” Cole raps: ““Bunch of words and ain’t sayin’ shit, I hate these rappers/Especially the amateur eight week rappers/Lil’ whatever, just another short bus rapper/Fake drug dealers turn tour bus trappers/Napoleon complex, you this tall rappers/Get exposed standin’ next to 6’4″ rappers.”
When asked if he thought the North Carolina rapper was referring to him with the “lil” line, he replied, “I listened to it. He said ‘little.’ I’m not little. I mean my name has little in it but…it’s a lot of little rappers.”
Boat finally confessed that he thinks Cole was probably either talking about him or Lil Uzi Vert. But still, the Atlanta newcomer isn’t sweating it at all. “Honestly I don’t give a fuck,” he added.
But quickly, Yachty admits, “I fuck with J. Cole, bruh.”
He then brought up an old tweet where he said “Fuck J Cole” but admitted, “I was like 14 and I was trolling. And I hope he doesn’t feel like any type of way.”
On another one of Cole’s new tracks, “False Prophets,” there seems to contain subliminal shots aimed at Kanye West and Wale. And while Boat doesn’t care about what Cole has to say, Wale sent his own response to the sneak diss.
