Kanye West Vs. J. Cole Showdown! Who Will Be The King Of June 18?


While in 2007 both Kanye and 50 were on their third releases, Yeezus now sees Kanye on his sixth album, while Born Sinner will count as J. Cole’s second. However, all three rappers have seen almost universal success on each of their releases, with none of the three having albums that debuted lower than No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Check out the comparisons in first week sales below.

In just the six years that have elapsed since, of course, the ever-changing nature of the music industry has meant that sales figures are not what they have been, with Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV two years ago the most recent hip-hop album that has come close to the first-week sales of Graduation. Here are the previous sales results for Yeezy’s first five albums, and Cole’s debut in 2011.
