Verse: 1
Key line: “Nigga dissed me, it was nonsense/I sat em down like his father/My nigga asked, ‘Why you bother?’/We should’ve caught him and mobbed him.” 

On “Lion King On Ice” J. Cole reflects on making it out of Fayetteville, achieving fame, and the challenges that come with it. While he acknowledges his celebrity, he says, “Deep down inside, though, I still feel as broke/As that nigga who graduated from college.” J. Cole also reverts back to his “big brother” role, rehashing his old disagreement with Lil Pump who dissed him in 2019. “Nigga dissed me, it was nonsense/I sat em down like his father/My nigga asked, ‘why you bother?’/We should’ve caught him and mobbed him,” he raps. Cole isn’t so much attacking Pump as he is trying to lead him down the better path. This verse is yet another reminder of everything Cole does so well. —Jessica McKinney
