Let's just get the Drake comparisons out of the way now: This isn't J. Cole's "Best I Ever Had." But that doesn't mean it's not the perfect song for Cole to have out right now. "Who Dat" is a front-and-center display of all of Cole's strengths; his swift flow, clever wordplay, and grand ambitions ("I was plotting this moment back when y'all was riding spinners"). It's a song that packs a punch but also lets the listener know that Young Simba has much more roar in him than he's letting out.
