    Honestly jcole will sell a decent amount of albums he has a good following,as far as promotion he’s getting more and more promotion idk what you guys are seeing open your eyes, he’s doing more performances, more interviews, cmon now,just cuz jayz aint cosigning doesn’t mean shit he said it himself “he just proud that he’s on roc nation” anything else he doesn’t really care about cuz he’s a humble dude

    For this horus you need a life man seriously, get a job stop hanging out at the internet cafes for the free wi-fi, and do something productive with your life other than posting about everyone you hate on,so while u sitting in a chair hating on drake and jayz they still doin more productive things than you will ever amount to , enough said

  • tre

    It’s sad that Nah Right’s comment section has become more bearable than Rap Radar’s.

  • Black Shady

    J.Cole will break the 100K first week. He got a nice following. and considering what rappers sell nowadays (between 100-200K first week..unless you’re Em/Jay/Kanye/Wayne/T.I)…he’ll be fine

    and im telling you this nigga is COOKING A CLASSIC. just wait and see..

  • HORUS

    SMH FAKE HORUS

    YO I WATCHED THIS SHIT! J. COLE IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN SHRAKE, NO SINCERLY!!!!

    HE IS HIP HOP; THE BIIIIIIIITCH AUBREY IS JUST WACK.

    SIDBAR: HIS GOATEE IS LAME AS FUCK.

    Die fake Horus Die

    I’m the honest truth

  • Usual_Suspect

    Tight video. We need more rappers like J. Cole

    Cant wait for the album..everybody go cop that!

  • Belize

    They got it right. And J.Cole is better than Jay now. Jay used to be one of the best (what 3-4 classic albums?) But nowadays the realest thing he’s released is DOA, the rest ain’t as good. J.Cole truly does have a bright future. He and Bobby Ray are the only decent new rappers that recently came out.

  • mac DIESEL

    IT STARTS NOW!!!! KEEP DOIN’ YA THING J. COLE!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • HORUS

  • flawda

    LOL some of yall don’t understand the business side of music so i think yall should leave that shit to the A and R’s. Talking about promotion when the mfs album aint even coming out for another 2 months, this aint the 90s either, these labels aren’t gonna throw money at an artist anymore because they aren’t seeing the returns from album sales. If yall want promotion, start buying that Who Dat single and maybe the label will start throwing money behind dude.

    As for Cole, keep doing your thing and ease up off the “n” word and “the ville” talk, i’m sick of hearing that shit in your rhymes dude even though i’m a fan.

  • CarolinaGirl

    J Cole did an excellent job on Rising Stars. His album will be very successful. I’m sure of it. He let everyone in the 910 know that dreams come true and you can make iy with hard work and preserverence. Shout out to Little Brother also. Carolina all day!!!

  • CarolinaGirl

    @ flawda. As far as him shoutin out the ville, that’s where he from. What’s wrong with shoutin out your city. Everybody does it.

  • JDot

    Thanks for this vid double R, great watch…

    Cole World!!!

  • Black Shady

    @ flawda ; he’s reppin wheres his from. why is it ok for Jay-Z or 50 screaming NY in every 2 songs, but not for my nigga Cole?

    COLE WORLD bitches

  • The Illest

    @ flawda

    You got a problem wit a nigga puttin on for his city?

  • flawda

    I don’t have a problem with him repping the THE VILLE, but i don’t need to hear him say that shit every 30 second. Dude uses NIGGA and THE VILLE way too damn much in his verse, dude is educated and obviously smart, he doesn’t need to use that as a crutch. I’m sure his vocab is pretty lengthy, considering he was a communication major.

  • Word

    I kinda cosign @flawda, almost every Cole verse I heard is near flawless but even he acknowledged he needs to tone down the cuss words a lil not just nigga. as for the ville thing don’t got a problem with it, he doesn’t use it too often tht it’s annoying to me but. you know every song he’s gonna say the ville at least once or twice so we better get use it

  • Prajnaimmovable

    Cole ah bottom ass nigga wha chu prop n hem fo ?

  • So Icy Boi!

    Dis nigga aint gonna sell 100k …he aint gotta big fan base out side of NY/Eastcoast niggaz and the south and midwest niggaz aint fukin wit him ..and more importantly the white fan base that buys albums i dnt see it….no hate keep doin ya thing …be NY niggaz always overrated shit…

  • CarolinaGirl

    He got a big fan base outsideof new york. Especially down here in North Carolina because that’s where he from

  • ODC

    this cat been doing more press than he release actual official singles. Seems like the label not releasing him til they get a hit from him, and his type won’t no hit.

    I se they using the media as much possible to jump start him. thats cool, but it seem like he just won’t ignite that fire.
    I think he’s achieved his potential so far? In terms of acknowledgment that he’s good, but not enough commercially. He has no real “musical,” “artistic” personality” outside his good lyrics to make him that next dude”.

    Basically, “a star was not born,” imo. or some premature birth etc. lol

  • Smoove

    IM FROM FAYETTEVILLE AND EVERYTIME I HERE “DA VILLE” I SMILE WITH PRIDE! BIGGIE REPPED BROOKLYN “BK” TO THE FULLEST. TIGHTEN UP @ FLAWDA

  • 44 Fours

  • ChillOut

    I know plenty of other folks listening to him 2
    So the Midwest is checking for J.Cole fam
    sorry to shut down your lil idea of where his fan base lies
    Next time speak for YOURself and YOUR city instead of assuming you know what goes on in other folks city

  • DAMN

  • So Icy Boi!

    @ChillOut …i use to live in Chi i be there every once and a while niggaz not listening to him and you and ya family and friends listening to J.cole dnt count …@DAMN every city/country in this world always gone hav a artist wit fans…it may be small tho u probably the 5% of the people who listen to him and the other 95% in Cali dnt

  • The Illest

    I know more people that listen to Gucci than Kid Cudi yet Cudi did bigger first week numbers than Gucci. You never know how widespread an artist’s fanbase is.

  • Dell

    @So Icy Boi!…if u aint fukkin wit cole then……..why are u here??

  • Jax

    That was a great video. J. Cole is about to take over the rap game. If people doubt his fan base just go to Youtube and check all the videos of him performing and check the crowds going crazy. He did a show in Chicago recently to a mostly white crowd, they knew every word and acted like dude was The Light Skinned Jesus..oh wait, he is, LOL!! Cole World!!

  • So Icy Boi!

    @The Illest ..thats because white people brought his album he has more white fans den black he makes pop music, Gucci makes trap music for da streets and Gucci more popular den Cudi ….you niggaz always talkin about record sells when black people dnt buy CD’s dnt say they do …u can google the % of who buyin albums and dats a low % …@Dell because i wanted to comment nigga lik a said on one of my previous post i aint hatin …just speakin da truth dick riders..
