I see my shit all in your shit, we call that imitation
And they say that’s flattering but I ain't flattered at all
Matter fact y’all need to practice that more

from J. Cole – Cosmic Kev Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The old saying goes: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. Cole doesn’t see it that way, and thinks if fools want to flatter him they need to stop copping his styles and try harder to become their own man and generate their own type of styles in the rap game.
