Future: Flop or Not??

edited May 2012 in The Reason
Just checked Future's sales number after 3 weeks on the charts and I was surprised to see that he's sold only 58,000 albums. With all the buzz, hit radio songs, etc. I would've thought that he would be past 100k or at least a lil bit closer to it. So with all that he had going for him before dropping the album, is this album a flop or not in your opinion???

    I still say that he would've had a much more successful album if he would've plastered Dungeon Fam all over it. ahh well, 58k still not bad for a dude that sounds like a retard mumbling on a mic with autotune on. he does have some catchy hooks though

    how is anybody being pushed onto you?
    i hate when niggas say that
    if you don't like some shit, don't fuckin listen
    xm radio, ipods, auxillary ports, and telephones make it so easy to listen to what you want
    how can anything be pushed on you?

    I don't listen to dude and I never said I did. I listened to about 1 minute of that Same damn time song, concluded that he was basura and kept it moving. That's not the point though.

    When dudes are being played all over MTV, BET, and all over the radio only to go triple bubble wrap how is that not being pushed on us? If people were naturally feeling him like that wouldn't they be copping his album?

    THIS. Future sucks, and I don't know anyone in real life who is checking for him... Maybe my demographic just doesn't check for him, but when I was in high school, I would have never checked for dude then either... So who likes this guy?

    All those people you named are bigger stars they doing venues while future is still doing clubs bru that was such a unfair comparison also most trap rappers start off in the streets and have to build there buzz&usually have one demographic there trying to appeal to....im not saying they dont but ive never heard a hood nigga yet bumping wale,mac miller,or wiz (probably get clowned in the hood for bumping Mac in yo car)

    Right...if you a trap rapper you got demographic which leads to low album sales.. I never heard a Mac miller song on the radio and he sell over a 100k his first week. Future got 3 to 4 songs in rotation on the radio and videos..I guarantee curren$y do better #s and big krit

    WRONG:Waka sold 37K first week and ended up doing 270K almost.I doubt Future goes beyond 2-300 K total
