he doesnt have Dame to do that plus the only way Jay know how to promote an artist is put a chain on them and do a song with them possibly for a single people fail to realize just because you can rap doesnt mean you going to make it big Jayz needs to son J.Cole like what Wayne did for Drake.....now Drake big he doesnt need a Wayne feature no more

dame...... vh1 where are they now...................

Dame Dash Music Group is a record label started by Damon Dash and Kareem "Biggs" Burke.[1][2] It was created after Dash and Burke parted way with Roc-a-Fella Records and former business partner Jay-Z to pursue other ventures.

Though Beanie Sigel,[3] Oschino, N.O.R.E., M.O.P., and Grafh were at one time listed as artist on the label's website, they all left to do other business with other labels.
lets be real dame can't promote s**t without a powerful artist in his side, the roc roster sold all thanks to one artist/boss.

That was a Jay-Z album full of features, just like most of his others
no, TECHNICALLY it was a Jay-z album, but it was actaully a compilation album but they didn't think that it would get enough exposure / sales if it was labeled as a compilation album, so they just added a few solo tracks from Jay and made it a Jay-z album.

IMO Jay has handled J Cole perfectly.

1. He didnt FORCE him to the limelight. He lettin him build a buzz organically, rather than giving him a band and letting him go right before him on tours and s**t. Cole goes out there early as s**t, and performs off of a laptop. Which is cool. Cole hasnt earned the big buzz yet. Nobody had even heard of Cole before Jay signed him.

2. Cole hasnt made any songs that are potential hits. Whether u like it or not, the n*gga needs to make a big song. "Who Dat" aint it. So Cole hasnt earned his big push yet.

3. A feature on BP3 is huge. And yeah Beans was on a single for vol.3 BUT the Roc was more like a click. Where as Rocnation is more like a label. So getting the feature was big.

Right now, I think Cole has gotten everything he's supposed to get. Now if Cole was to make some song wit crazy potential, and THEN Jay doesnt give him the big marketing, then that'd b messed up. The only reason Drake got the big marketing was cuz he made "best I ever had". He was already famous with a hit, BEFORE he signed to young money.
Co-sign.....I've said it before, the reason Drake is where he is is because he's a potential hit maker for both himself and others. Weezy just didnt co-sign him because he liked his music, he saw that he could make money. The industry loves him because they see that they can make money, add to that he's also politically astute meaning that he gets people to like him. I mean the dude is writing for Alicia Keys. As much as I would prefer to see someone like J.Cole win big, he hasnt shown that hit making ability....yet.

I find it hilarious the lengths people go to hate on jay-z.

Like Jay-Z is n*ggas father and s**t. Who carried jay-z's hand to legendary status?
NOBODY. Jay-Z gave cole a platform, its up to him what to do with it.
I dunno Face that sounds like some Diddy s**t to me . Either way J. Cole is doing what he can by doing shows, etc. As far as that BP3 feature n*gga only raps for 2 sec. . Drake's hook was more memorable on that album than J. Cole's verse. You're right though to an extent. There is only so much a label owner/manager can do for the artist before they have to take it upon themselves and do it.

if it weren't for hov ya'll would think j cole was a womens shoe store. didn't he just take the n*gga on tour with wale and n.e.r.d? fall back. a jay co sign is huge in hip hop, it immediately grants you access to magazine covers and the hottest producers in the game. don't feel sorry for cole or his set up he's doing just fine

Drake did have "best I ever have" but Wayne came out on the stage with him at the BET Awards, co-signed this n*gga every step and made an album featuring the whole YM crew to promote them.

SMH @ people saying "J.Cole is touring with JAY-Z"

SO was Bleek, look at that n*gga now, he stayed touring with him - but as the hype man.

You say that as if Best I ever had wasnt a number 1 smash. Why is n*ggas act like Wayne just pushed his click out there so right. Currensy, Tyga, Mack Maine, Gutta, and Jae Millz were ALL signed to Young Money before Drake. WHY DOES DRAKE GET THE BIG PUSH? cuz he made a hit. Plain and simple.

You really think if Cole made a number 1 smash, that Jay-z wouldnt take that opportunity to make money? c'mon son.

I'm no fan of Wayne but he did his thing promoting Drake and getting him up there. Wayne pretty much MADE Drake what he is today. Without Wayne, Drake would still be puttin out mixtapes barely getting played outside of Toronto.

Damn shame too cause JCole will outrap Drake any day of the week.


*cough* MOP *cough*
you're an idiot. He made an album full of roc features, i guess that wasnt promoting them?

i guess him scream Bleek is only one hit away on SEVERAL hit records had nothing to do with promoting them

i guess him writing a SOLO record dear summer for MEMPHS record, had nothing to do with promoting him

i guess him being on the lead single for beanies s**t wasnt promoting him

i guess him SCREAMING ROC WE RUNNING THIS RAP s**t, even mentioned scrubs like o sparks and young gunz, at SUMMER JAM.

Sit in the corner you dumb n*gga.

You've been sonned.
