J. Cole's "Everybody Dies" and "False Prophets" are now available on iTunes and streaming platforms. "Everybody Dies" is a jeremiad against all the types of rappers Cole hates -- "especially these amateur eight week rappers, Lil' whatever—just another short bus rapper." Neither Lil Yachty nor Lil Uzi Vert seemed particularly phased by this slight.
"Everybody Dies" makes use of the beat from A Tribe Called Quest's "Lyrics to Go." Cole last used a ATCQ beat on Born Sinner standout "Forbidden Fruit" to great effect.

If they weren't talking 'bout the bread
These motherfuckers be toast
Clap at the fake deep rappers
The OG gatekeep rappers
The would-you-take-a-break-please rappers
Bunch of words and ain't sayin' shit, I hate these rappers
Especially the amateur eight week rappers
Lil' whatever—just another short bus rapper
Fake drug dealers turn tour bus trappers
Napoleon complex, you this tall rappers
Get exposed standin' next to 6'4" rappers
The streets don't fuck with you, you Pitchfork rappers
Chosen by the white man, you hipster rappers
I reload the clip, then I hit more rappers with that
Straight shittin' on these piss-poor rappers, I'm back
