[Video] J. Cole – Who Dat (live)

Here's J. Cole performing a BRAND NEW track he's never done before @ SOB's in NYC for the Hot 97 "Who's Next" showcase. He of course kills it and the verses are both very dope along with the hook. I'm looking forward to a CDQ leak of this very soon!

jaydre Here's a pic released late last night of Jay-Z and Dr. Dre supposedly taken recently while working on a new single off the long-awaited "Detox" album. Earlier this week Michael Yo of E! News posted a message on Twitter telling everyone to watch out this week for a Jay-z & Dr. Dre single off Detox. Now, for all of you hip hop heads out there, we've been waiting for this album since 2006 when there was first talk about it. I really want to believe all this hype but until we get some solid audio, I can't be too confident! Jay is my favorite MC hands down & Dre is definitely within my Top 10 producers. Hopefully they can pull off something a bit more dope than their last collab on "Kingdom Come".
