Those Diamonds Are Yours

Jay Z pulled out all the stops Tuesday night during J. Cole's b-day concert in NYC -- surprising the 29-year-old rapper with an incredible guest performance ... before handing over a priceless piece of rap history.

The crowd went WILD at the Garden -- Hov came on stage and performed "PSA" while J.Cole stood in shock ... it was awesome.

But the best moment by far was when the music stopped ... Jay Z pointed at the diamond chain around J. Cole's neck -- Jay Z's original Roc-A-Fella chain from when he founded the label in the 90s.

J. Cole thought he was wearing the chain on loan for the night ... but Jay Z turned to him and said, "That, on your neck, is my original Roc chain -- and it's yours."

Legendary.

Right, because you can't be a "rapper" without a tacky, ridiculous, ugly chain, to distract people from your astonishing lack of any and all talent. Hope he goes back to the ghetto and hangs himself with it haha.

...Oh you get me ready
In your '56 Chevy
Why don't we go sit down in the shade
Take shelter on my front porch
The dandelion sun scorching
Like a glass of cold lemonade...

Oh, wait?... J. Cole??

Sorry wrong artist.
