J. Cole now has four platinum albums, as 4 Your Eyez Only has made the milestone in four months.
Cole's last album, 2014's 2014 Forest Hills Drive, was the first rap album to go platinum (a million sold) without features in 25 years, making 4 Your Eyez Only the second.
On top of that, we're going to be getting Cole's fourth album in pay TV form next week: On April 15, HBO will air J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only, a short film co-directed by Cole and Scott Lazer.
Yes, there are memes:
