What could you say to me
I beat the odds like Vegas
I used to rap about haters before niggas was hating me

from J. Cole – Villuminati Lyrics on Rap Genius


Sounds like Cole was saying he was the greatest before he knew he was, the original quote by Muhammad Ali: I am the greatest, I said that even before I knew I was.

It’s a common cliche for rappers to rap about their perceived haters. J.Cole has been rapping about his haters since before he was relevant enough to even have haters.
