New Music: Wale – ‘Groundhog Day’

Wale responds.

After hearing what many perceived as a J. Cole diss towards him on “False Prophets,” the D.C. rapper addresses the controversy on the Jake One-produced “Groundhog Day.”

From the outset, the MMG spitter refers to the Cole track by name. “I know since I got my deal and his shit got real, I ain’t been the easiest ni**a to deal with,” he explains. “I’m heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet.”

After alluding to depression, Percocet usage, anxiety, and a bipolar disorder diagnosis, Wale reflects on his relationship with Jermaine. “I remember me and Cole would open for Hov,” he raps. “Everyday a star is born, I guess I died in the womb / I ain’t make it on Blueprint, so made me a blueprint / You got you a nice watch, my minutes was finished / I was lost at Interscope.”
