I think that J. Cole may be too "realistic" to win over fans who love to d!ckride by living bicuriously through artists. Look at how many of the successful artists you see are stylistically exaggerated by the machine or are on the more eccentric side. J. Cole appeals to a distinct indie crowd. The trick with him is to drop one or two more hits to lure the more casual rap listeners into buying his album.

4,000...but it sold out in a week and 2-ish days. Pretty beastly
So he probably could sell out 10k a couple weeks.

J Cole also produces well so he's more of a complete artist. He needs to go into the studio and just keep putting out tracks taking advantage of that studio time and its true make all the connects that he can. Patience is a virtue he should just tour get that merchandise money sell his mixtapes at his shows and stack that paper and invest wisely so he don't wind up like Lil Scrappy.

This generation is just too used to seeing artists blow up overnight....J. Cole situation is very similar to the way it was in the early/mid 90s. It took Nas 3 years to release an album and 5 years to go mainstream....it took Common 8 years after his first album to go mainstream. Cole is pretty much in the same boat....I doubt he'll go mainstream, but he'll have a very loyal fanbase...which is much better in the long run (unless you become a superstar, which doesn't happen very often anyway)


Anyway, whatever happened to discussing MUSIC? I honestly don't give two f**ks if he ever puts an album out, let alone how much that album would sell. As long as he puts out quality music, why should we care about anything else?
cuz cole wants to be mainstream and we want whats best for cole
