J. Cole Accused of Transphobic Lyrics Amid Kendrick Lamar Rap Battle

J. Cole Faces Backlash for Allegedly Transphobic Lyrics in Kendrick Lamar Diss Track

Dreamville rapper J. Cole's recent rap battle with Kendrick Lamar has stirred up controversy over what some fans are calling transphobic lyrics. Cole took aim at K Dot in his surprise album "Might Delete Later," with a scathing diss track titled "7 Minute Drill." However, it's the track "Pi" that has fans raising eyebrows over the lyrics, "They plead the fifth, I'm seeing hints of a trans fella."

While Cole doesn't explicitly name Kendrick in "Pi," the reference seems clear in "7 Minute Drill" where he criticizes Lamar's "Mr.

Morale & The Big Steppers" album. Many fans interpreted Cole's words as transphobic, especially in light of Kendrick's recent track "Auntie Diaries" where he addresses accepting a trans relative.

Critics called out Cole on social media for what they deemed as "lazy, bigoted nonsense," while some like Usher praised the track. The backlash highlights the ongoing conversation around inclusivity and acceptance in the hip-hop community.
