Rev. Run stands by his son after a new Diggy Simmons diss track hit the internet yesterday (April 1), on which the young rapper takes aim at J. Cole for disparaging remarks about him and his sister.

With the song, entitled “What You Say to Me,” Diggy takes on Cole for his verses on “Purple Rain,” where Cole describes a naughty reverend’s daughter who allegedly represents Diggy’s sister Vanessa.

“The other day I was listening to ‘Purple Rain,’ couldn’t believe all of the things that I heard him say,” Diggy raps, “Who dat, who dat, you know who it is/ heard you lying on my sis, tellin’ people that you hit…Little n***a named Cole think he live like me, jet setter trend setter, yeah you not like me…”

While Cole’s “Purple Rain” was released over two years ago, he recently dropped “Grew Up Fast,” on which he directly mentions Diggy and his sister Vanessa.

“Move along cock-sucker, ain’t got nothing to see, unless you talking blockbuster, you n***as is not Russell/You’re more Diggy, Me? I’m more Biggie/No diss to the young boy, I’m just rapping, get bored quickly…What up Vanessa/I loved ya that one semester…”

As Diggy’s response made its way around the internet yesterday, some critics questioned the timing of the release, which dropped a week after the sales for his debut album proved to be less than stellar.

However, members of Diggy’s family took to Twitter to defend him and address the controversy.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Vanessa Simmons responded: “Our Brothers r protective ova us CUZ guys stay LYING”
