Now comes news that Cole has pulled ‘7 Minute Drill’ from streaming services. Per Billboard, “7 Minute Drill” was removed from streaming services as of Friday, April 12; it comes on the heels of Cole’s apology to Kendrick Lamar while on stage at his Dreamville Fest. Cole said the crowd at the time: “I’m so proud of [Might Delete Later], except for one part. It’s one part of that s—t that makes me feel like, man, that’s the lamest s—t I did in my f—king life, right? The past two days have felt terrible. It let me know how good I’ve been sleeping for the past 10 years.” Cole apologized for his “misstep,” asking for forgiveness to “get back to [his] true path ..I want to say right now tonight, how many people think Kendrick Lamar is one of the greatest motherf–kers to ever touch a f–king microphone?”  The question was met with cheers from the audience.
