The tension between J. Cole and NBA YoungBoy traces back to 2021 when Cole allegedly waited eight hours in the studio for YoungBoy, who ultimately did not show up for their scheduled session.
According to Akademiks, "J. Cole waited in the studio for eight hours for YoungBoy to show up. YoungBoy didn’t show up. Facts. These are facts! Your favorite rapper, n-gga. J. Cole? He sat in the studio for eight hours for a session with YoungBoy. YoungBoy never showed up. Let me be fair to YoungBoy. No disrespect to J. Cole, J. Cole’s just a rapper."
NBA YoungBoy responded earlier this year, addressing Cole's behavior in regards to a potential feature, which ultimately led to a rift in their relationship. YoungBoy rapped, "J a ho, that n-gga played it cold, like he was gon’ do a feature/So I texted his line, a muscle sign, I swear it’s gon’ be nice to meet you."
