J Cole remembers that moment Jay Z handed him his chain, plus reveals he wanted Idris Elba for the 'She Knows' video.

J Cole gave Manny Norte a call on Friday night's The Norte Show (21st March 2014) to catch up on all things happening in the 'She Knows' rapper's life. 

The US rapper talks about the thought-process behind his creative, cinematic video for his popular single 'She Knows.' 

"People expected a certain type of video for their song... All the Born Sinner videos you never see me rapping, they're just dope short films. I'm proud of that... I didn't do the typical videos."

And there was a certain person that J Cole was originally eyeing up to star in it: "We were trying to get Idris in it... The Mandela movie had just come out so it was too hard to get him." 

The two also discuss the moment Jay Z joined J Cole on stage at his recent concert and gave him his original Roc-A-Fella chain

Listen to the full thing above. 

Catch Manny Norte on The Norte Show every Friday at 11pm.
