Diggy Simmons explains the reason behind the J Cole diss on his recent leaked tracked What You Say To Me. In an interview with US radio station 99.1 FM, he claims he recorded the song after J Cole falsely claimed he had relations with his sister Vanessa on his track Purple Rain. Diggy claimed that the song was over a year old, but he felt the need to defend his family, and that the track wasn’t leaked by anyone in his camp.
“[There’s] no big story behind it, it was really just that my sister [Vanessa] over a year ago told me that [J. Cole] was saying that he did this, that and third with her, ‘cus the went to the same college [St. John’s], but they didn’t really know each other like that, so it wasn’t like that,” he said. “She also told me that he subliminally talked about her in a song called ‘Purple Rain,’ which was also false. So it was just me sticking up for my family, that’s all that it really was. I didn’t even leak it, it got leaked last night while I was at the movies…I did that record last year…I was gonna put it out, but I didn’t feel like it was appropriate, but of course, that’s my sister…family over everything. [My dad Reverend Run] had already heard the track and he was like the same thing: ‘Family over everything, that’s your sister,’ so he wasn’t mad at all.”
