It’s an ongoing debate that J. Cole may be the most underrated rapper in the game.
For all those he believe he isn’t, think again.
J. Cole hasn’t released a project since Forest Hills Drive nearly two years ago but still has hits from that album and his other two albums in rotation. The Roc Nation rapper has now added two more platinum singles added to his resume as “Crooked Smile” and “Can’t Get Enough” passed the one million sales mark, confirmed by the RIAA. He officially has six total platinum singles.
The two most recently added songs were both released over three years. “Crooked Smile” is from his 2013 Born Sinner album where the North Carolina lyricist teamed up with TLC to express his journey toward self-acceptance and encouraging others to do the same through his rhymes. And “Can’t Get Enough” is the Caribbean-inspired hit from Cole’s debut LP in 2011, Cole World: The Sideline Story and features Trey Songz.
While Fayetteville’s finest hasn’t released his own music since 2014, he recently made an appearance on DJ Khaled’s Major Key album on the track “Jermaine’s Interlude” where he touches on staying true to your music.
“Tables do turn and labels do burn. The second they ask you to sell your soul, don’t do it, don’t you fold. Say F–k that s–t and be bold. Cause all them stories you told on records worth more than gold.”
All three of Cole’s albums are certified platinum as well.
Congratulations J. Cole!
