J. Cole Confirms 2013 Fight With Diddy On New Track ‘Let Go My Hand’

Conscious rapper J. Cole has confirmed a 2013 altercation between him and Diddy in a new song.

It’s been alleged the scuffle ensued following an MTV Video Musi Awards after-party. An allegedly intoxicated Diddy tried to confront Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar for calling himself the ‘King of New York.’

Sources provided Complex with details from that night:

“Diddy was visibly intoxicated. He tried to confront Kendrick over the ‘King of New York’ claim in his “Control” freestyle. Diddy allegedly attempted to pour a drink on Kendrick, and J. Cole intervened. The two started arguing and Cole allegedly put his hands on Diddy, which then led to problems between their respective crews. After a brief scuffle, both crews separated.

J. Cole is now addressing the fight with Diddy on his latest album The Off-Season. J.Cole raps in the song, “Let Go My Hand:

“I kept a tough demeanor on the surface but was mostly just pretendin’/And luckily my bluff was workin’ way more often than not. But sometimes a n***a pulled my card, tryna expose me for a fraud/And with my reputation at stake, I was scufflin’ just to save face/Couple wins, couple losses/Some broken up too quick to call it/My last scrap was with Puff Daddy, who would’ve thought it?/I bought that nigga album in seventh grade and played it so much/You would’ve thought my favorite rapper was Puff/Back then I ain’t know s***, now I know too much.”

After the 2013 incident, Cole’s manager Ibrahim Hamad, took to Twitter to reassure fans that Cole was not removed from the party that night.


He also reacted to J. Cole’s new lyrics, replying to tweet from TDE’s Punch.
