A little over two months after J. Cole released Cole World: The Sideline Story, the rapper is celebrating the success of his debut album, selling more than 500,000 units since its release as well as a recent Grammy nomination for Best New Artist.
He tweeted his gratitude: “9 weeks later. Thank you is an understatement. GOLD World.”
The North Carolina native recently expressed his goals while on the BET Music Matters tour before they became reality, saying: “My one-year goal would be definitely put the album out, be critically acclaimed, quadrillion albums sold, and some Grammy nominations in the mix.”
A dollar and a dream paid off.
