J. Cole Is Still Waiting on His Jay-Z Verse

J. Cole, the young talent signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation, is releasing his proper debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story, on September 27. And he will do it with or without a Jay-Z verse: Days before the deadline for turning in his album, J. Cole tells VIBE, Hov still hasn't done his part. Says J., "I’m texting this man everyday [sic]. It might happen — he’s got like four or five days. It’s like a Christmas present — I just want it to come. I’m not harassing this man, anymore.” What?! Look, Jay-Z, we know you're very busy promoting an album and everything — but, like, dude, give J. Cole a verse. It can be an old one. That's fine. But, come on. Just do it. Give him a verse. [VIBE]
