Only got few homies
I prefer lonely, you rap niggas don’t know me

from J. Cole – The Cure Lyrics on Rap Genius


He would prefer to be by himself rather than be surrounded by people in the rap game claiming they understand him.

This draws some similarity to Eminem’s lines in the 2nd verse of the song “Sing for the Moment”:

Holy or unholy, only have one homie
Only this gun, lonely cause don’t anyone know me
