Clap For Him: J.Cole’s “2014 Forest Hills Drive” Is Now Certified Platinum
There was a time when some deemed J.Cole and his music to be boring.
Despite the Jay Z cosign, the cult like following of his Friday Night Lights mixtape and the widely received praise he earned from his freshman debut and Born Sinner, many brushed the Dreamville quarterback off as a lyricist who couldn’t move the people.
Well, according to Hip Hop n More, there are 1 million folks in the world who disagree with that claim, which has now pushed the emcee’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive into platinum status. The album sold 7,733 copies this week, which helped solidify the deal.
Guess Cole and his “boring” music and “boring” fans got the last word, huh?
Congrats to Cole.
