Album: Cole World: The Sideline Story (2011)
  • This sketch is about a true incident that happened to Cole when he was behind the wheel of his car. Seconds after getting a text message from Jay-Z, saying he was signing him to Roc Nation, the excited rapper was pulled over by a cop. He told Billboard magazine: "I had so many bench warrants for the dumbest things you can have in New York: hopping turnstiles, drinking in public, all the little stupid stuff you can get tickets for… and my license was bad, because I had traffic things or whatever. So the minute I found out I was getting signed… I literally got pulled over right after that."
