A number of people were taken aback last week when they heard a J. Cole diss track from Diggy Simmons. Now the 17-year-old is explaining its origin.

As previously reported, a Diggy track titled “What You Say To Me” hit the Web leaving a number of people confused about his beef with Jay-Z’s protegé.

Now Diggy is speaking out about the record that he says he wrote in his family’s defense.

Diggy was a guest this week on Cali’s KGGI 99.1 FM and let his fans know that the song was in response to a subtle diss J. Cole aimed at his sister, Vanessa.

According to Diggy, the rapper alluded to having sex with his sister, who he went to college with, on a song titled “Purple Rain” and after hearing her complain about it, decided to write the diss track.

“It was really just that my sister, over a year ago, told me he was saying he did this, that and the third because they went to the same college. But they didn’t even know each other like that, so it wasn’t like that. She also told me he subliminally talked about her in the song ‘Purple Rain,’ which is also false. So it was really just me sticking up for my family. That’s all it really was. I didn’t leak it. It got leaked last night. I was at the movies, and my boy hit like, ‘Yo, ‘What You Say To Me’ leaked!’ I did that song last year, in February when I first started recording the album. And I was gonna put it out. I didn’t feel like it was appropriate. But that’s my sister. That’s how I felt.”

He also added that he “doesn’t really care” what J. Cole thinks about it.
