J. Cole removes “lame, goofy” Kendrick Lamar diss track ‘7 Minute Drill’ from streaming services

J. Cole has removed his Kendrick Lamar diss track ‘7 Minute Drill’ from all streaming services.

It featured as the closing song on his surprise-release new album, ‘Might Delete Later’, which dropped earlier this month.

The track came after Lamar fired verbal shots at Cole and Drake on the track ‘Like That’, which was shared as part of Future and Metro Boomin’s recent collaborative album ‘We Don’t Trust You’. Lamar appears as an uncredited guest on the song and raps: “Fuck sneak dissin’ / ‘First Person Shooter’ / I hope they came with three switches”. The mention of ‘First Person Shooter’ is a direct call out to the Cole and Drake collaboration track from the latter’s 2023 album ‘For All The Dogs’.

Cole then responded to Lamar on the track, starting with “I got a phone call, they say that somebody dissing / You want some attention, it come with extensions.”


He continued: “I’m hesitant, I love my brother, but I’m not gonna lie / I’m powered up for real, that shit would feel like swattin’ a fly / Four albums in twelve years, n****, I can divide / Shit, if this is what you want, I’m indulgin’ in violence”.

But earlier this month, Cole expressed regret for responding to Lamar’s diss when he was performing a headlining slot at Dreamville Festival 2024 –  saying onstage that he thinks his response on ‘7 Minute Drill’ was the “lamest, goofiest shit”.


He said during a three-minute speech: “I just dropped a new album right? I’m so proud of that project, except for one part. It’s one part of that shit that makes me feel like ‘Man, that’s the lamest shit I ever did in my fucking life, right?'”

Now, Cole has removed the track from a number of streaming service including Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal.

Last week, 50 Cent reacted to Cole’s public apology for creating a diss track against Lamar, urging the rapper to call him.
