Fans speculated that Cole jabbed YoungBoy and Ibrahim “IB” Hamad responded to SayCheeseTV‘s promotion of the claims and denied that was the case on Friday (September 29).
“I’m pretty sure this is [cap]. Not sure how y’all heard that cole verse and put that together, impressive,” IB wrote.
A fan responded by quoting lyrics from Cole on “The Secret Recipe” and comparing them to YoungBoy’s “Fuck The Industry Pt. 2” which saw the Baton Rouge native snipe at Jermaine among others.
“Youngboy name dropped Cole saying he was going to do a feature, then Cole says people making threats and facetiming for features This really not directed at Yb,” the fan asked.
While another fan responded to IB: “Aint nothing wrong with the diss its competition stop trying to have cole wit this squeaky clean image he a MC to the purest form let him talk that shit!”

“N-ggas makin’ threats and I laugh, that’s ’cause you ain’t a threat/Don’t ask how I feel ’bout no rappers, shit, they okay, I guess/Incomin’ call, press the button, the one that say accept/He FaceTime to ask for a feature and saw the face of death,” Cole raps.
The friction between J. Cole and NBA YoungBoy dates back to 2021 when Cole allegedly waited eight hours in the studio for YB who ended up not showing up for their scheduled session, according to Akademiks.
“J. Cole waited in the studio for eight hours for YoungBoy to show up,” Ak said. “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 fired back earlier this year when blasting Cole for acting like he wanted to do a feature but their relationship ended up souring.
“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,” YoungBoy raps.
