On the project’s track “Pi,” Cole delivered a verse that troubled even some of his own fans, prompting many to call the rapper out for transphobia.

“Is you a demon or is that demeanor for the ‘Gram? Tell us / They plead the fifth, I’m seeing hints of a trans fella,” Cole rapped. “In cancel culture’s vicinity, he’s no killer, trust me / Beneath his chosen identity, there is still a pussy, period.”

As Cole was criticized for the lyrics, others pointed to Lamar’s own complicated history with the trans community, citing his 2022 song “Auntie Diaries” from his fifth album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. In the controversial song, Lamar reflects on accepting his uncle’s transition. “My auntie is a man now,” Lamar repeats throughout the song, where he also uses the F-slur.
