Kanye West has some words for J. Cole.
An unreleased demo of Pusha-T’s Daytona track “What Would Meek Do?” surfaced online this week. The alternate version features new bars from Ye, including one aimed at the Dreamville boss.
“I am the Don of Vuitton / I am the Sean of Sean John / That’s the boss, ni**a,” raps Kanye. “You heard Cole on that song, he was tryna hate.”

It’s unclear exactly what song Kanye is referring to, but as HipHop-N-More points out, it could be a response to Cole’s “False Prophets,” which some believe is about Kanye.
“He’s fallin’ apart, but we deny it / Justifying that half-ass shit he dropped, we always buy it,” Cole raps on the 2016 track. “When 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 ni**a was my hero, maybe / That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take.”
During his interview with Angie Martinez last year, Cole said that “False Prophets” wasn’t a Kanye diss, but some of the lyrics could apply to him. “When I’m writing ‘False Prophets,’ which that song wasn’t about him. There’s one verse that applies to him for sure, but if you listen to that song, that song is about what this s**t is exposing,” he said. “What I gotta check myself about. And I check myself on that song as well… We’re worshipping celebrities… These are our heroes.”
