J.Cole’s ‘2014 Forest Hills Drive’ Is Now Certified Gold

Apparently, Cole is that dude.

With no singles and no traditional marketing plan, J.Cole, unbeknownst to the hip-hop community, released one of the year’s best gems with 2014 Forest Hills Drive.

During the album’s first week, Hollywood Cole sold well over 300,000 copies, so it was only a matter of time before his third project would go gold. The accomplishment marks the Roc Nation’s artist’s third consecutive album to not only go to number one on the Billboard charts, but to also sell more than 500,000 copies.

Congrats Jermaine. Well deserved.
