It’s been two years since North Carolina protegee J. Cole signed to Roc Nation. Since then fans patiently awaited what they hoped to be a lyrical takeover.
Insiders at the label that Jay-Z was loosing patience, and contacted Cole telling him if he didn’t speed up the process, they would have to disconnect.
In a previous interview, the MC shared that he isn’t sweating the label pressure, and wants to be satisfied with the final product. “I don’t worry about what the world wants me to do, I’m worrying about meeting my expectations.”
We speculate the delay comes from Cole’s true desire to imitate his idol’s need for perfection. In a sit down with ABC News, Cole spoke on Jay-Z saying, “I studied the game and I studied the greats and I studied people’s movements and the mistakes they made and the pitfalls. And he just did everything so close to perfect.”
