Jay-Z and his wife, superstar Beyonce, are expecting their first child in 2012 but Jay is already gaining some experience as a proud father. As the head of Roc Nation, Jay has been able to sit back and enjoy the success of his young upstart J. Cole. Cole's debut album was a hit, and Jay says that he sees similarities between being a labelhead and a parent.
"I think running a label is a bit like having kids," Hov told MTV News. "When you know someone needs more help, you help them," Jigga said. "When you see that someone can make it on their own ... you see Kanye or J. Cole, you see that sort of talent -- you let that talent be. You let that talent find its way."
J. Cole's debut Cole World: The Sideline Story debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts and the North Carolina rapper is nominated for Best New Artist at the 2012 Grammys.
