Just a day after J. Cole fired shots on "False Prophets," Wale hit back with his own new song, "Groundhog Day."

The rapper released "Groundhog Day" via Soundcloud on Saturday (Dec. 3), opening with a lyric directly referencing the title of J. Cole's latest track: "I know since I got my deal and s--- got real I ain't been the easiest n---- to deal with. I'm heavily flawed, but far from a false prophet. I'm a muf---ing honorable Folarin Cassius, Muhammad, McGregor, Conor of these rap artists."

"I remember me and Cole would open for Hov," he later raps, recalling his time on tour with J. Cole and Jay Z. "Everyday a star is born, I guess I died in the womb. I ain't make it on Blueprint, so made me a blueprint. You got you a nice watch, my minutes was finished."

All is seemingly well between the two as of Saturday night, when Wale shared a video of them together, taking in a basketball game, on social media. 

"See you at the game, Bro," he wrote on Twitter.
