J. Cole Diss Lil Pump 1985 / J Cole KOD Album / Lil Pump Reacts To J. Cole / J. Cole finally responds to Lil Pump / J. Cole Disses Lil Pump KOD (Mumble Rappers) / J. Cole – ATM
J. Cole released his highly anticipated fifth studio album KOD on Friday (April 20), and fans online are already singling out the LP’s closing track — “1985 (Intro to ‘The Fall Off’)” — for its subliminals
While the song serves as a lecture of sorts for today’s new generation of so-called “mumble rappers,” many fans and commentators believe Cole is calling out one artist in particular: Lil Pump, though he doesn’t mention anyone explicitly.
“I heard one of em diss me, I’m surprised/ I ain’t trippin, listen good to my reply/ Come here lil man, let me talk with ya/ See if I can paint for you the larger picture,” Cole raps, before breaking down his intended target.
Back in April of 2017, Lil Pump teased a song titled “F*ck J. Cole” via social media. The cut — produced by fellow Florida rapper Smokepurpp — features a whole bunch of “b*tch-ass” and “ugly-*ss” insults toward the Dreamville Records bossman, though Purpp later explained they were just trolling.
Here’s the full KOD track list:
1. J. Cole – Intro
2. J. Cole – K.O.D
3. J. Cole – Photograph
4. J. Cole – The Cut Off ft. Kill Edward
5. J. Cole – ATM
6. J. Cole – Motives
7. J. Cole – Kevin’s Heart
8. J. Cole – BRACKETS
9. J. Cole – Once An Addict (Interlude)
10. J. Cole – FRIENDS ft. Kill Edward
11. J. Cole – Window Pain (Outro)
12. J. Cole – 1985 (Intro To The Fall Off)
While Cole reportedly asked fans and attendees to try and keep details from the listening session a secret, many have been sharing what they experienced during the event at Gramercy Theatre on social media, giving us a heads up on what to expect. There’s no confirmation on the project’s tracklist, but based on people’s tweets and posts, we may be in store for a top notch Cole album featuring experimental flows and sounds.
KOD follows in the footsteps of Cole’s last LP, 4 Your Eyez Only, which he dropped back in 2016.

Jermaine Lamarr Cole (born January 28, 1985), better known by his stage name J. Cole, is an American hip hop recording artist and record producer. Raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, Cole initially gained recognition as a rapper following the release of his debut mixtape, The Come Up, in early-2007. Intent on further pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he went on to release two additional mixtapes after signing to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation imprint in 2009.
Cole released his debut studio album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, in 2011. It debuted at #1 on the U.S. Billboard 200, and was soon certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His next two releases, 2013’s Born Sinner and 2014’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive, received mostly positive reviews from critics, while being both certified platinum in the United States. 2014’s Forest Hills Drive also went platinum with no featuring artists. The latter earned him his first Grammy Award nomination for Best Rap Album. In December 2016, Cole released his fourth studio album 4 Your Eyez Only. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified platinum in April 2017.
Self-taught on piano, Cole also acts as a producer alongside his hip-hop career, producing singles for artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Janet Jackson, as well as handling the majority of the production in his own projects.
