Yes let the rumors cease to exist because Roc Nation CEO Shawn Carter is singing the praises of J.Cole in bringing in his 1st #1 album. Cole World: The Sideline Story sold an impressive  217,000 copies of Cole’s debut in its first week of release, beating out Blink-182’s long-awaited Neighborhoods album.

Jay was quoted to MTV news as saying:

“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.”

Mark Pitts, president of urban music at Sony /JIVE and CEO of Bystorm Entertainment said:

“J. Cole personifies humility and grace with edge and depth. As an MC, his point of view speaks to and represents me. I’m proud and blessed to be a part of his journey!”

Elsewhere J.Cole was also elated that the Queen had bestowed upon him her approval:

The icing on the cake was an email from the Queen B herself. “I got the Jay-Z call, got the Mark Pitts congratulations conversation, got the Beyoncé congratulations email. That was a good look,” he told Angie of Hot 97.

 “She’s the best, man. She’s the nicest lady. For real, it’s unbelievable.”

Congrats J.Cole! Make sure yall check out my review of the album Here!
