J. Cole’s BRM Magazine Cover

j-cole-brm-cover

This is J. Cole’s first magazine cover:

BRM (Beyond Race Magazine), an internationally distributed music, entertainment and culture publication, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the J. Cole photo shoot for the front cover of their upcoming issue. The shoot took place at the Rocawear headquarters and outside in New York’s Times Square. This will be J. Cole’s first national cover story.

After the jump, behind the scenes footage from the photo shoot.

It looks a bit like The Come Up cover and this old promo shoot he did.

Filmed and Edited by Kyle Timlin

    With Act II, i don’t think building too much anticipation for a mixtape is such a great thing. If it were an official retail release, then yeah, but to let people down and not even get any monetary benefit from it? I’m not saying it’s going to let people down but why chance it?

    With a mixtape, you should mention is the week before you drop it and that’s it. If it turns out to be a smash banger then it looks way better because it wasn’t meant to be a big deal anyway and you’re not letting anyone down…you spare the mass-disappointment and save face.

    But maybe niggas don’t give a shit about any of this and they are perfectionist. Fuck it.

    It’s kinda like when the Clipse said Lil Wayne can’t be a legend with wobbledi wobbledi on his resume. Kanye can’t be considered a great lyricist with lines like this on a consistent basis. Unacceptable.

    but jay elect, writes and rewrites a song 4 ever and we go ape sh!t

    ^

    how do you know that? I mean, it could be the case..but its also equally as likely that he just doesnt record that much
    ^^^^

    Trust, dude takes 4ever to write, his job is a producer and a m.c, so he is always around music….i just think its impressive when a mc can constantly make music that a group of people can enjoy year in and out…see pac jayz……..thats the thing with nas, every now and than he turns ghost…i dont need to see him, but atleast make music on a reg basis…just thing 12 songs in an album, thats one song a month, a verse every week and a half….mcs are lazy

    J Cole cant even fuck wit Lupe. And I’m sooo not a Lupe fan.

    ^

    your in the wrong place….your not going to convince anyone here that JCole doesnt have bars.. gtfo

    Drake makes good music and all but if you think Drake raps better than JCole you need to cash in those food stamps and buy some new fuckin ears

    Speaking of Cotto,I watched the replay and Pac is definitely on some substance.Too much stamina and muscle growth for a so-called smaller fighter.

    Not really. The game is changing. Some of the best MC’s are damn near 40. Nas, Jay-Z, Mos, Doom, Black Thought, Ghost. Most young guys aint doing it right and 30+ fans still want something. Age is becoming less and less a factor IMO.

    that nose bleed rhyme wasn’t really that good.

    Since when did Ye become the MC to compare to? He is nice but he ain’t fuck’n with the likes of JayElect, J.Cole, etc.

    Jay Elec aint even drop an album yet. Just cause he’s in his 30’s doesn’t mean he’s gonna stop being able to rhyme in a couple of years. So yeah, if you’re 30+ you can be the future

    ^but in order to be the future you have to put albums out. you can’t just continue dropping a song here and there once or twice a year. what’s that gonna accomplish? he’s gotta start knockin some albums out. right now that doesn’t seem to be his intent.

    ^^^

    People act like jay didnt earn his, dude has been putting down classic music since 96, thats 14 years ago, every year he dropped an album and battled whomever the public said was the new sh1t or the new hottest mc and dude still doing it….just think about this, that was 14 years ago, subtract that from ur age, thats how long dude been doin hot music every single year……so when people support hov its because he really put in work and nothing was handed to him, people slept on jay for the first 2 albums

  143. hl Says:

    ——

    Sometimes less in more. I feel you on Jay Elec though. But Nas going away for a year or two then dropping is fine with me. Alot of these guys are coming out with so much material it cheapens the actual album.

    Jay Elect has his own lane, J.Cole makes heroin music and dude has bars for milleniums, if you’re saying he’s wack you either haven’t heard TWU & TCU.

    They are both necessary for the game @ this point.

    “On top of nose bleeds” isn’t even close to wack or weak.. SMH

    ^nose bleeds are bad seats though no? lol. jokes.

    Only a hand full of rappers on earth could’ve pulled off Kanye’s Run This Town verse.FTR.

    That nose bleed line was aight with me. Not wack.

  149. Joe 88 Says:

    Maaaaaaaaaaan, FUCK JAY-Z, and the camel he rode in on

  150. why? Says:

    I can already predict who’s gonna be on the XXL freshman list –

    Theophilus London, Melo-X (maybe), J.Cole, Stalley, Chip Tha Rip, somebody from Young Money, and others i forgot to mention. Oh and maybe Diz Gibran.

  151. Hollabread Says:

    lets take it to the next bar

    “Niggas say they sick but when they rock they don’t sneeze”

    Tell me he’s not trying too hard?

  152. Hollabread Says:

    and for Jay Elec…..you are only as good as your last song so right now ….he’s fire…album or not

  153. Gravity Says:

    Ok so maybe “on top of nose bleeds” isn’t the craziest line ever but your fav MC has said a wacker line so why knitpick it?

    Jay Elect is on his own time but the quality of his work is all that should matter. 44 songs so far and its all been free.. Appreciate it..

    He was trying hard on that song and I don’t blame him considering the lineup. He usually doesn’t go for cheap punchlines. But his verse was still dope to me. Jay Elec and Mos were way better IMO.

  155. hl Says:

    That “black power don’t trip” line was powerful.

  156. Gravity Says:

    ^nose bleeds are bad seats though no? lol. jokes.

    Lol @ Gsev playing Devils Advocate.

    The full line is, “I’m on a higher level, i’m on top of nose bleeds” so contextually its on point.. Level inferring height i.e.

    Lol i’d say no more abt the line. It wack, happy?

  157. Hollabread Says:

    I just judge one verse at a time and IMO I havent heard him show up like he did on “A Star is Born”

    Sorry to break it to you nahrighters….

    But the game is not changing…popular music has ALWAYS been a young mans game…

    Mos= irrelevant…had music when he was young
    Ghost= Irrelevant…had music in his early days
    Doom= shouldn’t even been mentioned…

    Age is always a factor…and most of the dudes who are doing it…are younger than 30…thats just a fact…

    Some of you dudes get caught up in mythical rap, than you can’t see far down the road..

  159. The Broad Street Bastid Says:

    so Boosie, uhh who the fuck do u listen to is u think doom and ghost and mos are wack?

  160. The Broad Street Bastid Says:

    @ whoever is smoking crack
    —— J cole has no bars. Just has kanye’s early vocal tone that about it. Overrated great affiliation tho. He’s the new BLEEK. say sumthin.

  161. Mahad "Minneapolis Actual Lakers" Mohamed Says:

    Nice to see my dude J Cole get some national coverage. REAL RAPPERS NEED TO BE HEARD
    _________________________________________________________
    Plus for the dude’s who are talking about the Just Begun song
    1. Talib Kweli… flow was crazy
    2. J Cole… came through w/ that “nose bleed” line, raw
    3. Jay Elect… killed but kicked his normal rhymes, nothing spectacular
    4. Mos Def… was weak on the song

  162. The Broad Street Bastid Says:

    “I dont Wale wit them new niggas!”

  163. Kizzy Says:

    JCole is the truth, Mos these haters probably spit “REAL” bull “SHIT”. Lupe and Cole two different real rappers and Cole fly…yeah he looks like a lil Will Smith, Smith pulling $20m a movie and u broke asses on the block hustling for sneaker money u bums…lol. NC stand up bitches.

  164. mw Says:

    aiight aiight, its official…its obvious…we all see who’s just hating, pure & simple…out of the whole verse, u can only pick out 1 line that “sucked”…but most ppl with half a brain cell still understood (any human being that has ever attended a sports game understood that line)…he only said that cuz ders no seating thats higher than the nosebleed section…& he’s on top of that. its like sum1 sayin “i i start where the sky ends” or sum sh**…its not brain surgery or rocket science. 4 the record..lets get it clear..fan or not…Lupe aint fuckin wit J. Cole…period, end of story…i just hope he dont lose that hunger…ONE!!!

  165. mw Says:

    …& 4 the record, i like JE, but he only had dat 1 hot line “tryin 2 get thru the lobby door with a semi-buzz” …dat all

  166. yeah Says:

    Can anyone tell me what kind of boots J Cole is wearing?
