"When Cole was a young college kid 18 or 19 when he came to me.  Shy humble kid.  Couldn't even look me in the face.  But he could rap his ass off ... The way I was thinking at the time was music was a reflection of where we was from, and Cole wasn't that reflection, Jones said, explaining he was more like Kanye or Drake.  "He was the kid who said 'mama, I'm going to be the biggest rapper in the world and get you out of the hood', we was the kid that said we need to get some crack so we can hustle and get new sneakers."

Jones added that he could have signed Drake too, but he didn't know what to make of a "Canadian actor".
