J. Cole has had it with the music industry’s false prophets!

On Thursday, the songsmith dropped a new song and visual off his upcoming album 4 Your Eyez Only, and he really called out some of his fellow rappers.

Even the track’s title, False Prophet, seems to be a direct jab at Kanye West, who has called himself a god and Yeezus for years.

But in the first verse, the 31-year-old went in on the rapper, rhyming:

“Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star/ And we can’t look away due to the days when he caught our hearts. He’s falling apart but we deny it/ Just to find the half-assed sh*t he drop, we always buy it.”

He also seemed to open up about Ye’s mental state, adding:

“He tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/ It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately. There was a time when this [n-word] was my hero maybe/ That’s why his fall from grace is hard to take. Cause I believed him when he said his sh*t was purer and he the type of [n-word] swear he real but all around is fake.”

And he continued to criticize all the “yes men” who almost encourage his erratic behavior and comments:

“Nobody with the balls to say something to contest him/So it grows out of control until the person that he truly was all along was starting to show, damn.”

However, he later expressed sympathy for the acclaimed artist’s psychological issues, expressing:

“Damn, that’s what I get for lying to myself/But f*ck it, what’s more important is that he’s crying out for help/While the world’s egging him on, I’m beggin him to stop it/Playin his old sh*t, knowing he won’t top it. False Prophets”

At one point, J. Cole also appeared to call out Drake, who has recently been criticized for using ghostwriters:

“Wonder if it’s my fault for idolizing [n-words]’ words that they be rappin/But come to find out these [n-words], they don’t even write they own sh*t.”

And, fans think he went in on his friend Wale, rapping:

“I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that’s been had, by all the legends/So every time I see him, he stressing, talking ’bout, [n-words] don’t f*ck with him, the sh*t is depressing.”
