J. Cole continues to make music history. The North Carolina rapper’s latest single “MIDDLE CHILD” has officially passed 2 million units, making him the first multi-platinum selling artist of 2019. Released in late January, the track earned both gold and platinum RIAA certifications in March before hitting another 1 million units this April.

In case you missed it, J. Cole might be following in Hov’s footsteps to sign with PUMA.
