Jay-Z Calls J. Cole’s Debut Album A Classic. Cole Announces Tour Dates

Published on August 17th, 2011

 

The anticipation for J. Cole’s debut cd may has just been amped up a bit more.

Cole’s Roc Nation boss, Jay-Z, is calling ‘Cole World: The Sideline Story‘ a classic. Of course you would expect some type of hype from Hov since Cole is is artist, so we’ll just have to see for ourselves when the album drops September 27.


Cole recently spoke with Rap-Up to give his take about the co-sign.


When I played him the album, I could gauge his response not on what he said, but what his vibe was,” Cole said. “I linked up with [Roc Nation executive] Rich Kleiman and he said he was with Jay-Z later that night. Out of nowhere, Jay said, ‘So Cole got a classic. That motherf*cker.’


Cole said he still hasn’t gotten a verse from Jay for the album, but he’ll be ok without it, if it doesn’t happen.

The whole world knows that J. Cole is waiting on a Jay-Z verse, but if it don’t happen, it don’t happen. But how ill is it that the album is called The Sideline Story, which is a metaphor for me trying to get off the bench, and I’m waiting for the nod from the coach?
