    Album sales are not THAT important.

    cruell Summer is around 380-410k sold

    I think those numbers are will Wiz will be. folks fail to realize how much black and yellow being tied in with the Steelers helped his sales and brand on the 1st go round. That connection isn't there anymore. you had random whitey's buying his album just to support the steelers anthem

    Meek and Nas not seeing gold

    I thought Game would be doing a little better

    Dam big Boi

    Maybe TI won't make it to gold

    we need some new music

    Keef sellin more than big boi? Damn. It looks like a lot of folks gonna flop this year. Smh @ TI's numbers

    I think the real story here is Game doing what he's doing. I believe homie dropped a week after TI and hasnt reached 200k yet. Sad

    Damn Kendrick about to catch up with Nicki and she came out a full 8-9 months before him plus the whole YMCMB radio payola behind her.....

    Chief keef outselling big boi? damn shame, but big boi didnt really have no promotion behind his album.

    LOL @ Game album being damn near a rainbow coalition of rappers and not getting at least 200k in sales

    I dont think so for a few reasons. Big never even put out a single like he did on the 1st album. His album isnt catered to the masses/youngins and well Chief Keef is the new rap "trend" guy or at least tried to be. Dont think many ppl expected Big Boi to sell much, he didnt on his 1st album. Game sold 3x platinum at one time.

    Sales are low these days. The climate is all fucked. Meek and Wiz won't be seeing Gold anytime soon. Kendrick isn't seeing plat, sorry. He's got an excellent album on his hands but I just don't see it happening. Game had a dope album so it's a shame to see low numbers. Chief keef I don't really give a fuck about but I hate to see him outsell big boi. Good look for 2Chainz I wonder how he will do on his second round.
  • antarticpantarticp Posts: 8,435 ✭✭✭✭✭
    big boi didnt have any promo .... keef had tons of it ;) big story here is Keef was nothing but hype that didnt trendsend into $ale$ ............... hey he could be going thru what Wale went thru on Interscope and could align with the right team and still put out below average #s lol ;)
