Jay Z declares J.Cole’s album a ‘classic’ | Music News

Being signed to Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation can’t be an easy feat… just imagine having to play a legend your debut album. But it seems J.Cole has delivered to the full extend of the word, with Hov citing his album a ‘classic.’

With the album said to be 99% done, bar interludes and several guest features including a highly anticipated verse from Jay-Z, expectations are soaring.

“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?” Cole exclusively told Rap-Up.

Can September 27th please hurry up and get here already.
