J Cole remembers that moment Jay-Z handed him his chain, plus reveals he wanted Idris Elba for the “She Knows” video.
J Cole gave Manny Norte a call on Friday night’s “The Norte Show “(March 21, 2014) to catch up on all things happening in the “She Knows” rapper’s life.
The US rapper talks about the thought-process behind his creative, cinematic video for his popular single “She Knows“.
“People expected a certain type of video for their song…All the ‘Born Sinner’ videos you never see me rapping, they’re just dope short films. I’m proud of that…I didn’t do the typical videos.”
And there was a certain person that J Cole was originally eyeing up to star in it: “We were trying to get Idris in it…The Mandela movie had just come out so it was too hard to get him.”
The two also discuss the moment Jay-Z joined J Cole on stage at his recent concert & gave him his original Roc-A-Fella chain .
