DREAMVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA: J Cole offered an apology during his Dreamville Festival in North Carolina.

Cole admitted that he regrets dissing Kendrick Lamar while performing at Dreamville Festival at Dorothea Dix Park on Sunday, April 7 night.

J Cole says dissing Kendrick Lamar is the 'lamest sh*t' he's ever done

Pausing his headlining set, Cole began by explaining how proud he is of the work he put into his new mixtape, 'Might Delete Later', but at the same time he revealed that the closing song, '7 Minute Drill,' isn't about something which he is proud of. 

"I'm so proud of that project except for one part," Cole said. "There's one part of that sh*t that makes me feel like, 'Man, that's the lamest sh*t I ever did in my f****ng  life.' And, I know this is not what a lot of people wanna hear. I can hear my n****s up there right now like, 'Nah, don't do that.' But, I gotta keep it 100 with y'all. I damn near had a relapse." From there, he admitted that he's "blessed" to know both Drake and Lamar.

I tried to jab my n***a back and I tried to keep it friendly. But at the end of the day, when I listen to it and when it comes out and I see the talk, that sh*t don't sit right with my spirit."


He further said, "That sh*t disrupts my f*cking peace. So I want I want to say tonight, in the midst of me doing that, and in that sh*t, trynna find a lil angle and downplay this n***a's f*cking catalog and his greatness... I wanna say right here tonight, how many people think Kendrick Lamar is one of the greatest muthaf*ckas to ever touch a microphone? Dreamville, y'all love Kendrick Lamar correct? As do I."
