    crazy to see how Cole came up, as a fan since the Warm Up.

    i heard a car bumping FHD the other day and was thinking I remember when the only Cole fans I knew irl were people I put up on him

    Those are big sales for an surprise drop album with no features and basically no promo

    yeah i became a fan after the warm up. in pure monizzle hater form i always questioned who he was during that time when him and drake were coming up. heard the warm up and i was convinced that he was dope been a fan since. cole has done well so far.

    How is he list terrible of its solely based on sales?

    Good shit from Cole though. Respect his grind and music.
    Every disappointment is a blessing in disguise....

    Causes and effects are not real, but are habits of our mind to make sense of the observation that A often occurs together with or slightly before B. All we can observe are correlations, not causations; from which we make inductive inferences.

    I mean I fuck with Weeknd as well

    But I know damn well that nigga shouldn't be there either

    I find it remarkable, how impactful and how it appears how "easily" Drake sells records

    I mean this nigga came out and dropped a MIXTAPE, not an album, matter of fact

    nigga didn't even drop a album, just mixtapes and both of them end up in the highest sold albums of 2015

    but when he dropped IYRTITL, nigga just dropped that shit out of nowhere and had the internet on fire with that

    then Drake vs Meek and how Meek got his ass beat lyrically

    then before the year out, dropped that candy cotton cottonelle soft "Hotline Bling", which is probably still getting played ridiculous on the radio (I don't listen nothing but that auxiliary input to ipod or satellite)

    then he laced us with one last mixtape, with mumble mouth future

    Drake was dominant and had no album, thats very impressive

    If ppl still bought physical copies of albums, like they did back in the 90's, he MAY have gone diamond by now

    Kendrick's album is one of the most conscious, complete and interesting albums that have been released and is the most critically acclaimed album of 2015

    It's just that Drake, makes songs for the hoes and he's more mainstream and as a result gains more attention

    FHD is a classic. Been saying that. Not saying album sells translates to qualify but that album is worth every penny. That Drake was good but I know how the game works.

    Kendrick had the second best selling hip hop album of the year and made the album about us. How can a nigga not respect that.
