Why J. Cole Is Not a Priority to Jay-Z

 As if the lengthy delays after being touted as the next coming by Mr. Carter himself were not proof enough of J. Cole dangerously languishing in Game-like purgatory, it is becoming more and more apparent that Jay-Z has better things to do than foster the growth of his label's new jack rapper.

New DJ Premier Track Featuring Evidence (Video)

Premier can't stop, won't stop.

More of that incredible, inimitable sound and style of Hiphop music that solely belongs to him and nobody, except for of course the artists -- like Evidence -- whom Preem generously allows to kick rhymes over what is more times than not the hottest beat said rapper has ever rhymed on.

He's going on damn near a quarter of a century of consistently laying down pure heat for past, current and future generations of Hiphop -- all with a bunch of records (that he can cut and scratch the holy hell out of), some drum and sampling machines, and one of the keenest ears in all of music. An ear that is cosigned by a diverse cast of characters, which makes it all the more impressive.

Oh, and did I mention he always makes whoever he works with reach their full potential? That's a talent that should never be taken for granted.

However, that's a post for another date. Until then, enjoy the visuals for the greatness that is and always will be a Premier beat. (Check for the Termanology -- a rapper who has also been blessed by Premier -- cameo, too!)
