and this whole time I thought we were talking about JCole.... way to go to off topic reh-tard.
way to play it off after getting sonned like that. The n*gga you quoted said jay has never promoted anyone but himself, and you being the cheerleader that you are said DING DING DING, so i pointed out the COUNTLESS Times jay has promoted his artists. Use your braaaaaaaaaaain. Your dumbass calling anyone a retard is an oxymoron.

how much of a difference does that make?
a feature is a feature, he didn't give cole any special treatment

cudi and drake just happen to make good hooks while j.cole doesn't

Fam just admit you misread what dude typed.

He said "verse" and of course spitting a verse vs harmonizing a hook makes a difference

In spitting a verse you get to display your talent on an album that sold a good number of records

if anything, drake got more exposure because he was on a single

Drake got "exposure" way before he spit a hook on BP3

Jay simply jumped on the "Drake Bandwagon" and put him on a hook

Besides the point, Jay shouldnt have to hold an artists hand. Its more beneficial for Cole to create his own buzz and brand

J. Cole was recently at Rutgersfest performing over here in Jerz and he aint need Jay to come through for him to rock the crowd

as much of a snake you all want to make Jay out to be, he went through alot of s**t in his younger years to get to where he's at now, and yes he probably had to step on a few necks to get here, it doesn't matter because he GOT here, he said it over and over, he's not going to hold nobodies hand through this music business, he's just doing what he was taught growing up in the BK, you gotta learn on your own, and go get those fish....I put you on, that's good enough, because in his case, it's like "I could have ignored your a.ss".


the Blueprint 3 tour is enough promotion any f**king way, I mean seriously I bash Jay alot on here about his music, but when it comes to this, you all are hating.

Well, I heard J. Cole say in a couple of his interviews that they are doing this on purpose. They want J. Cole to be more of a grassroots type artist who builds up a loyal fanbase over a few years and then takes over. Kinda like how Jay did before Vol. 2. They don't want him to have the same pressure that Drake has to sell records.
wow, i never thought of it that way... it is true, Jay never did pop or explode until Vol. 2 dropped... that's when he really took over the rap game...

good move on their part then, b/c J. Cole has the skills to last in this game...

I'll be ready 2 drop this when someone explains to me how jay taking someone on the biggest tour of the year and featureing them on their multi platinum album is not a legitimate form of promotion....

what more do you want the n*gga to do? hold cole by his hand and walk him to each and every radio station to tell people he's dope?

J.cole has all the weapons @ his disposal he's signed to a company that has to promote him tour wise REGARDLESS OF WHAT HE SELLS, he's in league with one of the best producers of our era (No I.d), he's already been featured on a multimillion seller and he's dope Lyrically all he has to do now is MAKE A HIT and he'll have everything he's entitled to career wise

Young gunz
Memphis bleek
Beanie sigel
peedi crack

They all had the opportunity to become superstar but they couldn't get over that hump how is that jay's fault?

I really want someone to explain......

i agree with you, in fact i don't want jigga directing j.cole
cause i wanna hear him spit like he is now
i don't wanna hear him sell out for radio spins

but dude was trying to say that jigga was putting cole on, he's not
he's given drake more help than he has cole

Jay has said many times that A star is born will be a single....maybe he's just waiting for the time before jcole you know, actually drops his cd????????

and youre stupid as f**k if you think a hook will give someone more exposure then a verse.

and off that was never released as a single, so yet again.

you lose.

ice cube said he don't f**k with new artists cause if they don't blow up they blame you and if they do blow up they leave you. i agree it's a lose lose. jay z is getting blamed for him not being more popular and at the exact same time he's the very reason why he is popular. when jay z co signs you his industry friends open up to you. any hungry mc in the hood would k!ll for that look, yet fools continue to act like hov is f**kin the kid over. he got kanye pharrell and no id producing his new album you think hov aint got nothing to do with that? j cole did that by himself? he would be doing interviews with green lantern funkmaster flex and kay slay if hov didn't snatch him up? source and xxl magazine covers word? hov aint do s**t for that kid? are you n*ggas serious?
