New Music: Diggy Simmons - 'What You Say to Me' (J. Cole Diss)
We bet you didn’t see this one coming. Diggy Simmons fires at J. Cole on “What You Say to Me,” a diss track recorded before the Roc Nation rapper released his debut album. On the fiery record, Rev Run’s son references “Purple Rain,” a Cole song from 2010 where he subliminally raps about one of Diggy’s sisters. The 17-year-old hurls a tirade of insults at the North Carolina MC on the new leak.
“Who dat, who dat, you know who it is, heard you lying on my sis, tellin’ people that you hit,” spits Diggy. “Little ni**a think he cold, think he live like me/ Jetsetter, trendsetter, nah you not like me/ Can’t find a girl you know that do not like me/ I can’t find a girl I know that know you, you local/ Wasn’t even poppin’ in the school you used to go to/ Got aight lyrics, but can’t deliver your vocals/ … Only thing you hittin’ in the morning is your hand up/ Stand up, matter fact, sit down, don’t try to call Hovi Hov for a sit down.”
Cole recently unleashed his own dig at Diggy on “Grew Up Fast,” but Diggy’s track pre-dates Cole’s.
“You ni**as is not Russell/ You more Diggy/ Me, I’m more Biggie/ No diss to the young boy, I’m just rapping, get bored quickly,” rhymed Cole.
Did Diggy deliver? Weigh in below.
UPDATE: Diggy’s father Rev Run has addressed the record. “J Cole.. Puts out 2 records Dissing family & Diggy & nobody cared.. Some1 leaks a old Diggy record & there’s a problem?” he tweeted.
