Is J. Cole Biting Xzibit in ‘Who Dat’?

In the new video from J. Cole, “Who Dat,” he takes a tour of rough warehouse district with a big chant-along chorus. The southern rapper — who has no pimp cup, chop, screw or even much of a Southern accent — comes of the box nicely. The straight-to-the-camera city tour, however, is a bit reminiscent of Xzibit’s “What U See Is What U Get” in an arguably better neighborhood. You think he’s biting, working an homage, or the hood tour is just a routine everyone eventually hits?

Catch Xzibit after the jump.
