J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive album is officially platinum, Hip-Hop N More reports. Cole’s third studio album, which was released last December, reached the milestone with 7,773 copies sold this week, including streaming.
While Cole and Drake are leading in hip hop sales, other rap acts could very well go platinum this year. Among the contenders are Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, which has sold over 600,000 copies since March, and Nicki Minaj’s The PinkPrint, hovering near the same numbers as Lamar’s release, though her album has been out since last December.
Young Simba can’t stop winning.
