Ice Cube has heard all about J. Cole‘s shoutout to him on Drake‘s For All The Dogs, and — as might be expected — he couldn’t be more pleased about the love.

The lyric in question comes from “First Person Shooter,” where Cole raps, “Still in this bitch gettin’ bigger, they waitin’ on the kid to come drop like a father to be/ Love when they argue the hardest MC/ Is it K-Dot? Is it Aubrey? Or me?/ We the big three like we started a league, but right now, I feel like Muhammad Ali.

Cube caught wind of the shoutout to The Big 3 league, a 3-on-3 pro basketball league founded by the “No Vaseline” rapper, and took to Twitter on Friday (October 6) to thank J. Cole.

“Shoutout to @JColeNC for mentioning @thebig3 on his new song with @Drake called “First Person Shooter”. Thanks for the love,” he wrote.

Check out the tweet below.

While J Cole has gotten nothing but love for his contributions to Drake’s efforts, Drake hasn’t been so lucky.

Baltimore rapper Rye Rye took to social media on Friday (October 6) after realizing her “What” ad-lib had been used without her knowledge on the 21 Savage-assisted “Calling For You.”
