Roc Nation Building

A 17-year-old Cole once waited outside of Hov's office for hours so that he could give him a beat CD — only to be rebuffed by his icon when he finally emerged. Years later, Jay heard Cole's "Lights Please" and redeemed his mistake by making the up-and-comer one of the first signings to his new Roc Nation imprint.
