Watch J. Cole’s interview with Lil Pump

Watch the two rappers work out the beef with a one hour talk.

May 25, 2018

J. Cole has shared an interview with Lil Pump on his official YouTube channel. The hour-long sitdown at The Sheltuh in North Carolina marks a turn in the often fraught relationship between the two rappers: some fans believed Cole's 2016 track “Everybody Dies” was referencing Pump in the following lyrics:

<p>Bunch of words and ain't sayin' shit, I hate these rappers <br />Especially the amateur eight week rappers <br />Lil' whatever—just another short bus rapper <br />Fake drug dealers turn tour bus trappers <br />Napoleon complex, you this tall rappers <br />Get exposed standin' next to 6'4" rappers</p>

Pump responded in 2017 when he previewed a song called "Fuck J Cole." That song was referenced by Cole in the song “1985 (Intro To ‘The Fall Off’)" from his recent album KOD:

<p>I heard one of em' diss me, I'm suprised <br />I ain't trippin', listen good to my reply <br />Come here lil' man, let me talk with ya <br />See if I can paint for you the large picture</p>

Believing the record was a diss, Pump responded on social media, saying “Wow you get so much props. You diss a 17-year-old. Lame-ass jit.” However, J. Cole stopped the crowd at one of his recent concerts from chanting "Fuck Lil Pump," and at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, Pump revealed that the beef was squashed: "We on good terms," he said.
