Just a few days ago, Roc Nation shared the news on Instagram that the album “2014 Forest Hills Drive” was certified as double platinum by the RIAA. This makes Cole the first rapper in the previous 2.5 decades to go double platinum without any guest features.
J. Cole is sitting just staring blankly into infinity in the album cover of “2014 Forest Hills Drive“. Maybe he was envisioning this moment, no one knows but one thing is for certain that this did not come easy. He had several mixtapes and albums to gain a massive following which in return helped in the acceptance of his new album.

For a few, his success had become a topic for humour in the form of memes and posts but as of October 19, those social media posts need to be edited. Not only did he go platinum without any features, he went DOUBLE platinum.
Today feels like a good day to revisit that album, which is your favourite track from the album?
