Is J. Cole taking shots at Kanye West on his new track?

A track off J. Cole's forthcoming album has some people playing the guessing game on who he's taking shots at.

The rapper doesn't mention anyone by name on False Prophets but some people are speculating he's rapping about a few stars, including Kanye West.

One verse goes: "Ego in charge of every move, he's a star/And we can't look away due to the days that he caught our hearts."

He also rhymes, "When he tell us he a genius but it's clearer lately/It's been hard for him to look into the mirror lately."
