In the second verse of J. Cole's 'False Prophet' he addresses an overly sensitive rapper.

I got a homie, he a rapper and he wanna win bad/He want the fame, the acclaim, the respect that's been had/ By all the legends, so every time I see him, he stressin'/ Talkin' 'bout, niggas don't fuck with him, the shit is depressin'
All the speculation was that he was speaking about Wale, and the MMG spitter confirmed that today by dropping the response track 'Groundhog Day.'

"I'm heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet," Wale says in the intro.
But despite that disagreement, this is not really a diss track. In fact, Wale accepts what Cole is saying as truth.

I just heard a song about me on a hip hop blog / from a kid I know / some niggas say a hip hop God / it hit home, 'cause this some truth." "I love my brother though / that's why it's rest in piece to Tommy / we still bumpin' Cole," he also raps.
Throughout the track, Wale continues on his theme of being underrated and underappreciated. So while he may be feeling Cole's bars, he's not really processing them.
