J. Cole Removes “7 Minute Drill” From Streaming Services

J. Cole meant it when he titled his new mixtape Might Delete Later. The rapper has removed the song “7 Minute Drill,” his now infamous diss track about Kendrick Lamar, from streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal. It originally served as the mixtape’s closing number.

Last week, Cole headlined his annual Dreamville Festival. He took time during his set to explain that he felt conflicted about making and releasing “7 Minute Drill,” going on to call it “the lamest shit I ever did in my fucking life.” During his speech, Cole refered to Lamar’s “Like That”—the song that ignited the artists’ recent feud—as a “bazooka” and he wanted “7 Minute Drill” to be competitive and “friendly.” Instead, Cole said, his song “don’t sit right with my spirit.”

Cole’s most recent full-length album, The Off-Season, arrived back in 2021. Since then, he has released the aforementioned mixtape Might Delete Later as well as his DJ Drama and Dreamville collab D-Day: A Gangsta Grillz Mixtape. Cole has also hopped on songs with Drake, Lil Yachty, J-Hope, Smino, Lil Durk, and Bia, among others.
