J. Cole regrets Kendrick Lamar diss: "that’s the lamest shit I ever did"

During his set at Dreamville Music Festival on Sunday evening, J. Cole expressed his regret over dissing Kendrick Lamar.

On “7 Minute Drill", the closing track on his newly released project, Might Delete Later, J.Cole took shots at Kendrick Lamar, mocking his recent musical output and claiming that he had fallen off. The track was a response to Lamar's contribution to the Future and Metro Boomin track, "Like That", on which it was speculated that he took fire at Cole first.

Speaking to the crowd at Dreamville, Cole said: “I am so proud of that project, except for one part. It’s one part on that shit that make me feel like, ‘Man, that’s the lamest shit I ever did.’ And, I know, this is not what a lot of people want to hear… But, I gotta keep it 100 with y’all."

Adding that he had a ton of missed calls and text messages once "Like That" had dropped, and he was conflicted as to whether or not he should've made a response, Cole said: “Y’all love Kendrick Lamar correct. As do I, so I just wanna come up here and publicly be like, bruh, that was the lamest goofiest shit, and I say all that to say it made me feel like 10 years ago when I was moving incorrectly, and I pray that God will line me back up on my purpose and my path."

He also publicly offered Lamar a chance to "take your best shot" and call him out on his retaliation. "I pray that y’all forgive a n***a for the misstep and I can get back to my true path cause I ain’t gonna lie to y’all the past two days felt terrible," he concluded.

J. Cole's fourth mixtape Might Delete Later is out now.
