A reporter caught up with the Dreamville rapper earlier this week in New York City and he was asked about the winner in the For All the Dogs face-off, and the Atlanta native sided with his boss.
“I’ma go with J. Cole all day. It wasn’t even close,” JID stated. “We love Drake though, but I don’t know.”
Before answering the question, JID also made sure to show love to Yeat — whether that means he thinks Yeat got the better of Drake on their “IDGAF” collab was not clear.
“First Person Shooter” served as the first Drake-Cole collab since 2019’s “Jodeci Freestyle” and the track is challenging for the No. 1 spot on next week’s Billboard Hot 100, which would give Cole his first chart-topper.
Drizzy will be adding another No. 1 to his collection either way as his only competition is himself with the Yeat-assisted “IDGAF” also in the running for No. 1.
With another chart-topper, Drake will tie Michael Jackson for the most No. 1 hits from a male soloist on the Billboard Hot 100 ever. Rihanna and Mariah Carey are still ahead of him in the category.
Ice Cube got wind of Cole’s BIG3 basketball league shout-out on “First Person Shooter” and saluted him on Twitter for the love.
“Shoutout to @JColeNC for mentioning @thebig3 on his new song with @Drake called “First Person Shooter”. Thanks for the love,” he wrote.
Drake and J. Cole have spent quite a bit of time together this year, including hitting the stage together a couple of times as part of Drizzy’s It’s All A Blur Tour, joining forces on the Montreal and Toronto stops.
There could be more in the stash from Drake and Cole as Drizzy pleaded with the North Carolina native to let him get on his next album, The Fall Off, when they were on stage together in Montreal over the summer.
