Last week, hip-hop veterans Nas and T.I. saluted the newly released KOD project.
Cole’s new album almost immediately shot to the top of the iTunes charts.
J. Cole has created a powerful trailer for the just-released KOD (Dreamsville/Roc Nation/Interscope), which, as he explains at the top of the piece, as well as at listening events in New York and London, stands for “kids on drugs.” The album has flown to #1 at iTunes in the U.S. and 35 other territories (including but not limited to Ireland, Israel, Jordan, Burkina Faso and The Cayman Islands) and top 5 in more than 100 more.
