New Music: Diggy Simmons f/ Victoria Monet – ‘Fall Down’ (J. Cole Diss)

Diggy Simmons and J. Cole

Don’t mess with Diggy. The 17-year-old MC goes at J. Cole once again on “Fall Down,” the first offering from his upcoming mixtape Out of This World. After dissing him previously on the leaked record “What You Say to Me,” Diggy fires more shots despite reports of the two settling their beef.

He raps, “I guess I rattled you, snaggletooth, you know better/ Thought J. stood for Jermaine, not Jetsetter/ You see me and shook my hand, coppin’ pleas in person/ Now you act less than a man, mentioning me in verses/ Man, you used to have dreams of my big sister kissing ya/ Now it’s nightmares of a little brother dissin’ ya/ Sneak disses and jabs, I don’t really see the benefit, but I guess you lame enough, probably keep you relevant/ Maybe you should sign with me instead of Mr. Carter/ How you mad at me, I got a relationship with my father.”

He puts one final nail in the coffin. “This verse might as well be a hearse, killed you, ain’t even curse, ni**a.”

Does the second time sting more than the first? Listen and weigh in below.

Nick Cannon, whose twins Monroe and Moroccan turned one in April, is enjoying fatherhood. “I’ve always been a family person, so just that idea of when you see them start to recognize and understand who their parents are between me and my wife, and them to take after certain traits and habits that we have, that’s the thing that’s really important to me,” he said.

Happy Father’s Day!
