A week following the release of his debut album Unexpected Arrival, 17-year old rapper Diggy Simmons drops a rhyme or 20 directly targeted at North Carolina’s shining roc J. Cole on “What You Say To Me” – which emerged online today on what happens to be April Fool’s Day.
Little n***a think he Cole, think he live like me / Jet setter, trend setter – yeah you not like me / Can’t find a girl you know that do not like me / I can’t find a girl I know, that knows you / You local, wasn’t even poppin’ in the school you used to go to, Diggy rhymes buoyantly on the track.
I’m about to read your your rights, Miranda / Only thing you hitting in the morning is your hand up / Stand up, matter fact sit down – don’t try to call Hovy-hov boy, sit down, he later concludes, gleefully adding: College boy acting like a criminal / Knowing you a broke-back Jake Gyllenhaal / You imaginary player, even TMZ didn’t notice you was there / Jeez, you are such a dweeb – and your shirts don’t fit; long arms short sleeves. Yeesh.
- Ouch. Cole previously referenced Diggy on “Grew Up Fast,” though not as harshly; Move along cock-sucker, ain’t got nothing to see / ‘less you talking blockbuster, you n***as is not Russell / You more Diggy, Me, I’m more Biggie / No diss to the young boy.
But perhaps it’s a family affair – as Diggy opens his diss: The other day I was listening to “Purple Rain” / Couldn’t believe all of the things that I heard him say / Who Dat? Who Dat? You know who it is / Heard you lying on my sis, tellin’ people that you hit…
It is unknown when this track was recorded. Fool’s or fire?
Listen: Diggy – “What You Say To Me”
UPDATE – Diggy’s doting daddy weighs in:
