Lil Pump says J. Cole didn’t predict “sh*t” about his career - WhatsOnRap

Lil Pump claims J. Cole ‘didn’t predict sh*t’ when it comes to his career

Despite being on good terms with J. Cole, Lil Pump doesn't believe the rapper was correct about his career.

In an interview with Bootleg Kev, the famous rapper chit-chatted about what he learned from his four-year conversation with Cole. "“He was trying to understand [the] young generation, ’cause at that time people didn’t understand what was going on with the music,” he said. “‘There’s this new wave coming in, we don’t understand it but we’re just gonna roll with it.’ But I fuck with J. Cole, I don’t have no problems with him.”

Kev wanted to know if Cole's predictions about the younger generation of rappers in his song "1985," which several fans misinterpreted as a dig at Lil Pump and many of his colleagues, come true in certain ways. "Nope," he said, "because I'm still here." "I don't think he predicted sh*t." I'm still here."

Despite his popularity in 2017 and 2018, with songs like "Gucci Gang" and "I Love It" alongside Kanye West, none of Lil Pump's 2022 singles have hit on the Billboard Hot 100.

"If it's true what people say/And you call yourself playin' with my name/Then I really know you fucked, trust/I'll be around forever 'cause my skills is tip-top/To any amateur n***as that want to get rocked/Just remember what I told you when your shit flop/In five years you gon' be on Love & Hip-Hop, n***a," Cole rapped on "1985." Pump-trolled Cole on a regular basis around the time the 2018 track was released.

Cole never said who he was giving guidance to on the track, only that it was a "shoes fit" issue. "Why you shouting at your show?" he said, referring to Pump and Smokepurrp leading "fuck J. Cole" chants at some of their shows. "You must  feel attacked in some kind. of way, must feel offended, and if you feel offended, then that means something rings true, something struck a chord. That's cool with me. That's all I ever want to do."
