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.

That chain he got from Jay Z is a piece of hip hop history and is priceless meaning, whatever he gets for it if he sold it wouldnt equal its value, not 1 million nor 10 million, some things have a infinite value, that chains price tag is unlimited, The Roc was one of the greatest hip hop labels because of why it was started!!! Nobody believed in Jay Z but, him and his friends and they started it because they believed and today we see the results of Jay Z!!!!! J Cole wasa giving a chain that symbolizes what you can do if you see yourself better than others see you. Without the Roc, theres no J Cole. That chain is priceless and Jay Z must really like J Cole not just because he makes him$ but, genuinely like J Cole as a person and thats rare in the music business, thats a priceless gift!!!! The chain should be in the Hip Hop Hall of Fame!!!!LGNM

Jay Z can kick rocks. Tell him to have his buddy stooge J.Cole wear his little diamonds and take his azz to Barneys . See how well that visit goes. And DON"T call Jay Z cause it might interfere with his business $$$.
