With J. Cole's "Middle Child" single dropping in a single day, the Internet has been abuzz attempting to parse out the particulars. While Cole does most actually take a pointed stand towards "clout chasing" in its totality, the overall consensus is that Kanye West matches the "fraudulent" profile that's spoken about in "Middle Child," nearly to a tee.

"But I might by no means beef with a n***a for nothin'
If I smoke a rapper, it is gon' be legit
It will not be for clout, it will not be for fame
It will not be 'trigger my shit ain't sellin' the identical
It will not be to promote you my newest lil' sneakers
It will not be 'trigger some n***a slid in my lane." 

And though Yeezy is not named outright, the Internet consensus is that Cole is subliminally referencing Kanye's "half-baked" beef with Drake. In the occasion, J. Cole is definitely dissing Yeezy, the Dreamville rapper/CEO has carried out simply sufficient to cowl his tracks. Cole and Kanye have had a peculiar relationship over time, with Internet hypothesis fixated on an older monitor "False Prophets," the place the Calabasas crossover is explored to a subliminal stage of perception. 

As reported, Cole mentions different rappers by title, however in a much less disparaging style. Cole does invariably give like to LeBron James, Kodak Black, and 21 Savage. He even goes so far as to label Drake a legend within the flesh. Where do you stand on the pointed nature of Cole's introductory verse on "Middle Child," remark under?
