Just when we thought that whole “beef” (not even quotation marks cut it) was deaded, Diggy Simmons tosses the meat back onto the fire with this new diss track aimed at J. Cole entitled “Fall Down.” Over an irrelevantly melodic beat, Simmons Jnr. cranks up the heat with rather insulting lines like “Maybe you should have signed with me instead of Mr. Carter/ How you mad at me? I got a relationship with my father.” (Yikes!)
In an interview with DJ Drama back in May, Cole shunned the notion of any beef with Diggy (“He’s good, he’s talented, but he’s a kid… That’s not the type of beef you want to be involved in,” he stated), so it’s unlikely we’ll get a response on wax from the Roc Nation man.
For those unitiated, the mini war began earlier this year when Diggy was rubbed the wrong way by a few sister-referencing rhymes on Jermaine’s “Purple Rain,” and later on “Grew Up Fast,” to which he responded with “What You Say To Me“–despite his father, Rev Run, claiming it was an old recording.
Childish Gambino summed it up pretty well on “Eat Your Vegetables” (“No one cares like it’s J.Cole/Diggy”), but you can still take a listen to the diss track below.
