J.Cole has done it once again.
The Dreamville rapper’s KOD album has officially sold more than 1 million units as of Dec.5, making this his third full project to go platinum without any features.
Now that’s the definition of self-made.
Chart Data confirmed the accolade Thursday, exactly eight months after KOD was released, and about seven months after it was certified gold.

The KOD album has been praised by fans and also critics.
The project addressed things like love, money , and addiction.
Surprisingly, despite the albums success, it didn’t receive a single 2019 grammy nomination.
J. Cole not getting a Rap Album of the Year nomination is wild. The ones they nominated were great, all albums that deserved it. But wow.
