It’s been 5 years since J. Cole released The Warm Up, the mixtape that catapulted him into Jay-Z’s Roc Nation crew. To celebrate his come-up and stardom, MTV Jams will be airing an anniversary documentary, J. Cole’s The Warm Up: 5 Years Later, at 7:30 pm ET this Sunday.
In a clip from the RapFix documentary, young Cole sits down with Sway and discusses challenging one of Hip-Hop’s most prominent figures, Jay-Z, to jump on his songs.
Cole claims that Mr. Carter has never seen this unreleased footage, which has us wondering what Hov would think of it now?
Since then, the rap star has topped Billboard charts, received Grammy nominations, and sold out concert after concert. The Fayetteville native has gained a lot of commercial success throughout these past 5 years, being widely acknowledged as one of Hip-Hop’s most clever lyricists.
Big ups to J. Cole and check out the clip above.
