After Drake’s ‘Pipe Down’ freestyle, fans dubbed J Cole the ‘best rapper.’
J Cole’s ‘The Off Season’ tour began in Miami, where he was joined by Drake and other rappers such as Future, Morray, and 21 Savage.
On September 24, J Cole surprised his Miami audience by bringing Toronto hip-hop icon Drake to kick off his ‘The Off Season’ tour. As soon as Drizzy stepped on stage and shouted out some of his recent smash tunes from his sixth album, ‘Certified Lover Boy,’ the live audience and social media followers were taken aback.
The major moment came when Drake responded to J Cole’s recent ‘Heaven’s EP’ freestyle, which was performed over the music of the former’s hit tune ‘Pipe Down’ from his current album. The 36-year-old rapper referred to Drake and Kendrick Lamar as “superstars” in the song, claiming he was willing to take the bronze, alluding to third place as one of the best rappers. Drake responded to the freestyle by declaring that Cole was one of the best rappers of all time, driving their supporters into a frenzy. Cole and Drake previously collaborated on the song “In the Morning” in 2011.
