J.Cole Wins

After two years of hype and speculation, it seems that J.Cole will come out on top with his debut album Cole World: the Sideline Story. Early reports from Billboard suggest that theĀ LP could push 240,000 to 250,000 copies this first week.

The albums lead single, ‘All I Want Is You’, features up and coming rapper J.Cole.
