As for Greedo's original comments, he went in at length on the KOD rapper. “I don’t like anything from J. Cole, whether his album is coming out or not,” he said at the time. “I didn’t even know that n***a was dropping an album, to be real. I saw some news and saw J. Cole name and I got mad — I always get mad. I hate that n***a music. I don’t hate him personally, I wouldn’t like beat him up or try to start something. [His music] is trash. J. Cole not like that bro, but looking at you [DJ Vlad], you’re the kinda guy he makes music for, you feel me?"
He added: “The plain old background guy — ‘I’m chilling, I want a calmed down life,’ you know what I’m saying? I’m making music for the n***as who done lost somebody in the system, lost somebody in the streets, n***as who wanna show that we really got a heart even though we out here thuggin.’ I don’t relate to that shit — he ain’t getting no fucking hair done or haircut. That man look crazy. So he gon’ have these young n-ggas that look up to him walking around like that. Got my lil’ nephews and shit looking crazy. No, n-gga, you should be dressed to impress.”
