J. Cole's "2014 Forest Hills Drive" officially has the biggest opening week in hip-hop this year.
Rick Ross, move over -- J. Cole just topped your first week sales record for 2014. Rozay'sÂ MastermindÂ moved 179,000 units in its first week back in March, but now hisÂ tally's been handily topped by that of Cole'sÂ 2014 Forest Hills Drive. The official numbers just came in, and it looks like Cole sold a whopping 361,120 copiesÂ of his new project.
Topping early projectionsÂ 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 aroundÂ 2014 Forest Hills Drive.
