It’s the ROC!
J. Cole surprised us all with the announcement of his new album ‘2014 Forest Hills Drive‘ which is due out December 9. Now, the North Carolina MC finds himself on the cover of Complex Mag’s Dec/Jan issue, discussing everything from his days at St. John’s to how he felt about joining the Roc.
Do you feel the label and Jay Z believe in you more now?
They definitely believe in me more now. But first of all, Jay Z believed in me enough to sign me, and for that I am forever grateful. Thank God he heard “Lights Please” and those songs I played for him the first meeting. Thank God he signed me off of those. After that, I can’t front. If we asked him honestly, I’m sure he would say he wasn’t sure what I would turn out to be in the grand scheme of things, in terms of commercial success.
What was it like when he put the Roc chain on you?
That was a top life moment. I don’t soak shit up well, but after that night I definitely took a moment to. It wasn’t about that moment of the chain. It was like, it took so long to even get this dude to come out on stage with me. It took so long to get this guy to come to shows.
