Diggy Simmons Takes Shots At J. Cole on 'What You Say To Me'
Diggy Simmons Takes Shots At J. Cole on 'What You Say To Me'

Family comes first for Diggy Simmons. Yesterday (April 1), the rapper's unreleased diss track, "What You Say To Me," unexpectedly hit the 'net. The 17 yr. old throws shots at J. Cole who alluded to members of the Simmons family in not one, but two songs prior, "Purple Rain" (2010) and "Grew Up Fast" (2011).

Diggy took issue with both songs, especially "Purple Rain." The cut describes a sexual relationship with a "good girl" whose "father was a preacher." Shortly after its release, rumors spread that Cole was speaking of Diggy's older sister Vanessa Simmons.

On "Grew Up Fast," a song Cole released in February after he reached two million Twitter followers, he addresses a woman coincidentally named Vanessa before spitting a few words on Diggy. "You ni**as is not Russell, you more Diggy / Me? I'm more Biggie." J. Cole made an attempt at damage control by rhyming, "No diss to the young boy/ I'm just rapping, get bored quickly."

But Simmons felt differently. "The other day I was listening to 'Purple Rain'/ Couldn't believe all of the things I heard him say," Diggy raps on "What You Say to Me." "Heard you lying on my sis, tellin' people that you hit/ When ya album drops, I'ma hit you with your brick/ So I'ma bomb first on you since you wanna riff."

While people tried to figure out if the rappers' beef was an April Fools joke, Diggy's father, Rev Run, took to Twitter on Sunday (April 1) to say, "J Cole.. Puts out 2 records Dissing family & Diggy & nobody cared.. Some1 leaks a old Diggy record & there's a problem?"

What do you think of Diggy's and J. Cole's beef?
