Diggy Simmons Explains Reason Behind J. Cole Diss

Diggy Simmons explains he dissed J. Cole after Cole spoke ill of his sister on a track.

Yesterday, Diggy Simmons made headlines when a song titled "What You Say to Me" leaked, on which the emcee took aim at J. Cole. Now, the rap royalty explains the real reason he dissed the Roc Nation up-and-comer.

In a recent interview with 99.1 FM, Diggy explained that he attacked Cole because Cole falsely claimed to have had relations with Diggy's his sister Vanessa on his song "Purple Rain." Although Diggy added that his song is over a year old and wasn't leaked by anyone in his camp, he felt the need to defend his family, a belief that he says was echoed his father Reverend Run of Run-DMC.   

"[There's] no big story behind it, it was really just that my sister [Vanessa] over a year ago told me that [J. Cole] was saying that he did this, that and third with her, 'cus the went to the same college [St. John's], but they didn't really know each other like that, so it wasn't like that," he said. "She also told me that he subliminally talked about her in a song called 'Purple Rain,' which was also false. So it was just me sticking up for my family, that's all that it really was. I didn't even leak it, it got leaked last night while I was at the movies…I did that record last year…I was gonna put it out, but I didn't feel like it was appropriate, but of course, that's my sister…family over everything. [My dad Reverend Run] had already heard the track and he was like the same thing: 'Family over everything, that's your sister,' so he wasn't mad at all."

    If a guy was talking shit about your sister I'm sure you'd do something about it. And since they're both musicians, might as well do it in a track. So stop complaining

  • FoDuhKids

    Everyone saying "Aw man ploy gimmick to sell records." do you fucks realize how played out dissing people is? I mean shit I miss good battle raps and shit, but no one's like that no more. Not just that clearly hip-hop fans of this generation are pussy because people always go "Man someone wants records sales" Fuck hip-hop fans these days, fuck hip-hop artist that aren't down to diss and battle somethin out, and most of all fuck you.

  • ETK

    smh more people who cry about what hip-hop has become and it takes this to rile you guys up? I know neither Diggy or J.Cole are Tupac-level but Jesus Christ where does the bitching stop. neither of em are that bad, and y'all catchin feelings when a nigga defends her sister. close your browser, stop bitching and have a reality check dammit. I don't even fucks with Diggy but I pray the lord never to lower down to the level of y'all internet drama queens.

    Distasteful comments and online insults are a mainstay of many social networks and online comment boards, but a new bill passed in Arizona could send people who "annoy or offend" to jail for up to six months. House Bill 2549, which had bipartisan support, passed in the state's legislature and is awaiting one final vote on a minor "technical change" before the bill is sent to Gov. Jan Brewer. ===================== Circus is about to close kids. One state passes, others follow.

      And one states communist, the others go to. Fuck Arizona, fuck your bitch ass for being offended, and most of all fuck Diggy and J. Cole, these kids are bamas. Everyone just has a low standard these days because we had to deal with years of complete bullshit lately. Atleast these kids actually talk about shit that's not getting fucked up all the time.

    So it's ok for Kanye to mention "Russel's nieces" on a mainstream Top 40 single But J. Cole says something similar on a song that 14 people heard and it's time for war. Hmmm... Sounds a like somebody's a little scary to me. But that's just my opinion.

Trap all day lex luuuger

  • Church!

    The way I heard the record ...is that Cole was paying a compliment to how attractive Vanessa was by saying he was "loving her" ..he didnt say he was f*cking her..Diggy is definitely dissing because he flopped...and thats sad...I thought better of him but he a kid..somebody probably put him up to it

  • Duh

    Diggy chill out...your album flopped so you are doing what every other need for attention rapper does...diss another rapper

      Sounds like you're jealous because your parents were losers. I hope your kids don't end up like you did.

  • R.Pgh

    I don't get all the hate people have for this kid. Keyword "KID". It's not his fault who his dad is. He isn't the greatest rapper out, but for a teenager he has some skill. Think about the last 16 / 17 year old that made it big, who was 'Superman that ho' and brought the game down to a level that no real hip hop fan liked. Calm down.

      I hate whores who lie to their family members about not having sex with somebody. Merlin Santana got murdered because a young chick in Cali lied about him raping her. He had dissed her because she was too young and she was mad. He never even touched her, but now he dead, the 2 guys who killed him are in jail and the young chick is living good as a free woman.

  • Learn your lesson

    Diggy u know u done messed up right? U put your sister ou there and u went at one of the hottest rappers in the game for something u don't know about. U wasn't in the bed with them boi!!!! This is not how u want to gain attention, I don't care when u made the song. Just don't record it at all.

  • Anonymous

    STFU nerd. You suck, Cole isn't worth anyone's time and only if you start making gay p0rn with Ghostface's kid should anyone pay even three seconds more attention to your witless ass. What's it going to be, sweetcheeks?

    run was the man back inn the day, but this spoiled brat aint shit dide your daddy buy you sum record time, wack!

    I appreciate J. Cole's music more that Diggy Simmons' tenfold. He is just an overall better artist. With that said, sticking up for you family is always respectable, so props to Diggy for that.

    Shout outs to the Simmons family. When the lights turn off and the browsers close, family is still family. They have no attachment or DNA parallel to J Cole, but give thanks for their time for listening to his sermon, correct? lol all that was needed was the congregation.

    J Cole would not and should not go after Diggy. It will only make him look like a bully. Besides, there are worthier rappers for Cole to lash at.

    • Lol

      J. Cole is 27. People are too lazy to even google shit nowadays. Just start typin' and hope something good pops up on your screen lol

    • Anonymous

      Diggy is only 17 years old and J Cole 29 years old, so Cole would look like a child molester.

  • Anonymous

    Yo I checked through the lyrics and there was nothing that directly mentioned Vanessa Simmons. Whatever could have been a reference may have just been a coincidence. Funny how Diggy decided to respond to it now and not before.

    • Patches

      Then you didn't look hard enough. "Move along cocksucker ain't nothin to see/ Unless you talkin blockbusters, you niggas is not Russell/ You more Diggy - me I'm more Biggie" "What up Vanessa, I loved you that one semester/ Thanks to my profession I balled like Uncle Fester"

  • idontgetit

    i don't get it, so he said he had sex with this girl, or eluded to it. it is probably true i mean i am sure she was in the same circles cole was in it is not a huge school or anything. plus if it is not, i don't see anywhere that it must apply to her. i mean there probably a lot of preacher daughters in st john's. if he meant to elude to her, fine let the dude fantasize. it does not make her a slut or anything, while it does not call her out at all. in some ways she could be flattered, i mean how many rappers rap about famous girls they want to get with. pretty much 90% of them. so what is the insult? anytime a girl has casual sex, she must be a slut? please, you don't think that Vanessa Simmons like most girls have casual sex exactly like that? I don't doubt it, it is very possible. That does not make her a slut, Diggy is the only guy in the room calling her a slut. as i said what j. cole is doing is no worse than what drake talks about in marvin's room or eminem does, or hov does or pac does. if diggy should be mad at anything he should be mad that cole mocked him on Growing Pains, and he should admit that. don't drag your sis in it because you know that cole is going to either prove that it actually happened or back off and say he was never talking about her in the first place.

    YOU HAVE TO GOT TO BE KIDDING ME. THE REASON WHY HE DISSED COLE WAS BECAUSE OF HIS SADASS FIRST WEEK. DONT NOBODY WANNA HEAR THIS WACK ASS FUCKIN BABY RAP, SIT THE FUCK DOWN BACK IN YOUR FUCKIN HICHAIR. PLEASE. YOUR SISTER AINT EVEN ALL THAT ANYWAY. FUCK HER AND DIGGY BOTH OF THEM ARE HOES ANYWAY.

  • Ok

    either way Cole is going to get hated on for this: if he goes at Diggy, people will talk shit about him going after a 16 or 17 year old; if he doesn't go at Diggy, people are going to say he's a pussy. The only thing he can really do is shrug it off by laughing at it or some shit, when he gets the inevitable questions about it on the radio or in interviews.

  • GOD

    Click Clack Away>anything J.Cole as ever done.Cole's scared of this kid. He knows it, I know it, Diggy knows, J.Cole dickriders won't admit it but they know it too.

    LOL, I never heard J Cole come out and say anything about your sister, If anybody put her on blast it was you for making this situation a public spectacle, and if she is combing through his lyrics looking for subliminals then it sounds like she has summin to hide But, this is what being 16 is all about, making stupid fuckin mistakes, lol
