This is Your Moment

J. Cole

So it's now official, J. Cole has the number one album in the country. According to Billboard, the still-rising rapper's first release Cole World: The Sideline Story debuted at the top spot with more than 200,000 copies sold. When Cole found out the news, he took to his Twitter account to thank his fans, specifically for supporting all of his mixtapes which he views as the hard-work that got him to his point. "So many people to stunt on, fighting the urge to be spiteful. This moment is too important for that. Just want to say THANK YOU," said Cole.

Jay-Z is the head of Roc Nation, which is Cole's label.

Jay-Z, the man who signed Cole to his label has often seemed at odds with Cole, but none of that was on display once he received the news. In fact, he had nothing but love for the Fayetteville rapper and had this to say, "J. Cole’s success is testament to amazing artist development and Cole’s hard work. I want to congratulate him on a #1 album and more importantly a great body of work.”

For now Cole isn't resting on his laurels, he's working touring the country with upcoming stops in Detroit, Milwaukee and Chicago.
