J.Cole’s “Work Out” Single Goes Platinum

Big congrats to J.Cole. After a major Grammy nomination and his album going gold, he now has a single with platinum sales – “Work Out.” I feel like the reaction to this single was relatively lackluster (in the hip hop blog world, at least), so this is a great achievement.

Cole World: Dreamville Golf

The Dreamville team hits the links in this latest viral video from J.Cole. Cole in that bucket hat having no idea how to swing a golf club is hilarious. Not as funny as Big Sean throwing a baseball, however. I’m messin. At least they’re having a good ass time.

J.Cole Performs on Jimmy Kimmel

Honestly, this is the treatment J.Cole should have gotten BEFORE the album dropped, but better late than never. Here, he stops by Jimmy Kimmel’s show to perform both “Cole World” and “Work Out.” Just an FYI, but he’ll also be performing on Last Call with Carson Daly tonight as well. Second performance video below:

Quotable: What J.Cole Wants Out of the Release of “Cole World”

I want (fans) to feel like it’s something special. Six weeks after the album’s out, six months, and six years, I want them to be playing it. I just want it to be a timeless piece of work. If I’m successful it can make it easier for a guy like Kendrick Lamar when it’s his […]
