J.Cole 'A Star Is Born' Documentary Part 2 from Chris Knotti on Vimeo.

"In what will be a four-part series, Knotti chronicles the rise to stardom of a future legend, Jermaine Cole. You happen to know him as J. Cole.

This episode features footage from an interview earlier this year and a performance of “Grown Simba” at his “The Warm Up” mixtape release party on June 15, 2009.

Just 4 months ago, me & Karen were right next to Cole on that bench he’s standing on in that screenshot. Now he’s on a nationwide tour with Jay-Z & Pharrell. Crazy."
