I know my debut will ship, but is it gon' sell?
I guess it’s in God’s hands
Very subtle wordplay, which is one of J. Cole’s strengths — J. Cole knows that his debut album will be shipped across the country, but he wonders if the album will actually sell. At the same time, J. Cole is comparing his album to a ship that has been built and is asking the important question, will his ship actually sail (take off)?
