No!!! Also refrain from saying "get off his nuts" as I'm obviously an enormous fan. I stopped posting his mixtape when it comes out though.
And he does need a mixtape because he needs even MORE buzz. He doesn't want to flop like Wale, Cudi or anybody new who isn't Drake because they all sold less than 200k first week/less than a mil in a year's worth of time.
Cudi flopped album sales wise. He had enough promotion and a massive hit. He didn't flop in his fan base though, it's pretty big I would say but still, he didn't sell as much as we all probably thought.
J.Cole should get promotion with a mixtape and hope to not only keep a fanbase/grow it but also sell a very respectable amount, something like 200k+ first week and eventually get a million
If he dropped it now he probably wouldn't do 100k. I don't REALLY care but how can you not want someone you feel connected to to be successful? Dude's my favourite artist and I think he's genuinely humble and smart, why shouldn't I want him to be successful when there are others far worse doing better?
