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.
A hook does give someone more exposure than a verse. At least in today's world in which a hook is the only thing 90% of the population listens to

it got major radio play, meaning the label paid to have it played, same as every other single
and why would jay promote his own song instead cole's, to support cole?

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.
The tortoise won the race. :cool-smiley-009:

But we'll see.

I think Jay has done enough for Cole at the moment...but that doesn't change the fact that Jay DOES only leech onto people when they're successful.

I will say this, Jay kind of gets unfairly blamed for the lack of success Beans, Free, and the rest of the Roc n*ggas had. Beans couldn't stay out ofthe streets and he and the majority of the Roc never would've seen mainstream success. They had the "luck" of entering the industry when hardcore East Coast rap was on a decline. Honestly, I think only the young guns, particularly Chris, were the only ones who stood a chance mainstream wise.

Bleek is the only one I don't feel sorry for. He had a pretty decent hit with Is That Your Chick and another decent hit with "Round Here" in the last decade, which is far more than most of the former Roc can say.


By the same token, I also think Jay stopped dealing with them all too early and with full knowledge that they were never going to take off, and probably never just telling them the raw truth as to why they never were.


But changing gears, No, Wayne isn't the reason why Drake blew up, but it sure helped. Remember, Wayne was f**king with Drake pretty much right BEFORE So Far Gone (the mixtape), hence all the guest features Wayne has on there. Drake would've blown up anyway, but there's no way in hell having the cosign of the most popular rapper in America didn't help.

you n*ggas stuck on that 1999 s**t

its corny to have your boss bring you around and coherse radio media and his own fans to listen to your music.....all jay is suppose to do is give you a venue so you can put out your music.....its a new era.....you dont see n*ggas bringing their entire label to hot97 so they can freestyle over quiet storm type beats anymore

artists now have to do that s**t on their own
