Rick Ross, move over -- J. Cole just topped your first week sales record for 2014. Rozay's Mastermind moved 179,000 units in its first week back in March, but now his tally's been handily topped by that of Cole's 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The official numbers just came in, and it looks like Cole sold a whopping 361,120 copies of his new project.
Topping early projections by almost 100,000 units, Cole has finally unseated Taylor Swift at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. This is even more impressive when you consider that we didn't even know about the album a month ago, and the fact that there was basically no marketing around 2014 Forest Hills Drive.
On Wednesday night (December 10), J. Cole, whose 2014 Forrest Hills Drive album is now in stores, promoted his latest body of work with a performance on Late Show with David Letterman. But given recent racial injustices and lack of indictments in the respective deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of police, the MC found it more appropriate to perform “Be Free” rater than a song from the project.
Released back in August, the track is a passionate display of Cole’s take on how Blacks are clearly undervalued in these “United States.” That said, the Dreamville founder, while garbed in all black, ran through a live rendition of the tune, but spit an unheard closing verse that’s sure to re-ignite the conversations on prejudice in the Hip-Hop community.
2014 Forrest Hills Drive can be found on iTunes. See Cole’s performance below.

Somewhere in the dialogue, it was brought to everyone’s attention that Hart was expecting an insanely amount of money for using his “social media savvy.” The asking price? Let’s just say it stepped outside the figure of $3 million.
Thanks to the Internets, a snippet of that conversation made its way to our desktop.Read more
