Roc Nation is more than excited to be the home for J.Cole and Jigga recently spoke about how proud he was of J. Cole and what a great total package he gave the world. Cole says:
So many people to stunt on, fighting the urge to be spiteful. This moment is too important for that. Just want to say THANK YOU.
