When J. Cole was still underground, he camped outside the recording studio waiting for Jay-Z. He had an idea for a song called “Top of the World” that he imagined being on the American Gangster album. Jay-Z basically laughed at him and told him he couldn’t listen to random people’s CDs.

In a year he’d be fucking paying me
