J. Cole does not shy away from his high-ranking position in hip-hop, and on his first verse of the year, Cole made sure to let fans and fellow rappers know he is the GOAT.
Cole joined Benny The Butcher for Benny's latest single, "Johnny P's Caddy." Cole took a bold stance in the heavily praised record, calling himself the "best rapper alive."
"On God, the best rapper alive/Headshot, now go and ask the best rappers that died/They tell you he never lied," he raps.
Twitter praised the single and called for the two lyricists to work together more often.
