This makes twice now, I doubled what you expected, yet
Your covers keep perplexin' me
Maybe it's too complex for me
I DOUBLEd what you EX-pected is a play on the Magazine XXL. Cole hasn’t yet been on the cover solely, even though he has achieved so much in Hip Hop.
Complex is another magazine that J Cole hasn’t covered. He says it’s COMPLEX because he doesn’t understand why.
Cole is also referring to his albums sales. His debut album was projected to sell less than 100k, but ended up selling more than 200 thousand. His sophomore album was projected to sell 150k and he’s on track to sell about 300k.
