Last fall, J. Cole finally had his chance to bask in the spotlight. Several delays were not enough to stop the impact Cole World: The Sideline Story had on North Carolina and the world. A state with an undeveloped hip hop scene, J. Cole’s success was major. But, even with Jay-Z behind him, many wonder if Mr. Cole can do it again, as Petey Pablo had Timbaland in his corner.
Taking a break from his College Conscious tour with Big K.R.I.T., J. Cole took a moment to speak with MTV’s “Backstage Pass.” J.
