Be it Dr Dre and Eminem, Lil' Wayne and Drake or Jay Z and Kanye West, every artist in the industry started out with a mentor that showed them the way. These are their stories.
When he was just 17, J Cole stood outside of Jay-Z’s Roc the Mic Studio for three hours to hand him a track - but Jay snubbed him. Who would have thought that a few years later Hov would end up signing the rap hopeful to his label and act as his mentor. During his tour last year, Jay Z handed J Cole a very special gift; "That on your neck is my original Roc chain and it’s yours," he told J Cole. Picture: Getty
