J. Cole is one the elite rappers of our time, and it’s not really debatable (but people will, anyway). The North Carolina MC’s latest album, 4 Your Eyez Only, has officially gone gold—without any features.
Yesterday (Jan. 12), the RIAA, which certifies album sales, announced that Cole’s album was the only Hip-Hop project to go Gold (500,000 copies sold) in the fourth quarter.
Cole’s album dropped on Dec. 9, 2016 to critical acclaim. At one point, every song on the 1o-track album was on the Billboard Top 40 chart.
Congrats to J. Cole and Dreamville/Roc Nation.
