2011 has proven to be a great year for mainstream newcomer J.Cole. From grabbing a nod at the Grammy Awards up to being able to have his own debut LP, this Roc Nation rapper definitely has some promise in his hands.

Jay-Z, J.Cole’s boss, recently gave his thoughts to MTV about his man’s Grammy nomination for the Best New Artist category. Jay-Z expressed his joy and delight as Cole received the nomination this early in his Hip Hop career. He added that even if J.Cole does not actually bring home the award, it would be as if he has already won it due to the success that follows his debut album, “Cole World: The Sideline Story,” that has already reached gold certification for selling more than 500,000 copies. Jay-Z also stated that J.Cole absolutely deserves to get the credits and respects from the world of hip hop because of his innate talent, determination and continual growth as an artist.

Jay-Z personally believes that being nominated in the Grammy’s is something that J.Cole needs to reinforce his significance in the industry. “I think it’s great for him, because I’m sure it’s a dream of his,” Jay-Z said. He also added bits about his personal insights on the milestones that J.Cole is reaching one by one: “We grew up seeing Michael Jackson, and I’m sure he grew up seeing whatever moment stuck in his mind, so I know it’s great for him to do that. I think he’s already won Best New Artist, to me. His journey is what I’m really excited about…whether he was nominated or not, he was the best new artist to me; sold 200-and-something-thousand records in his first week; he was the best new artist. I’m sure it’s great for him.”

Jay-Z believes that the continuous artist-development process, such as what J.Cole had gone through until he realized success, should be preserved for the future generations.
