    I'm glad Kendrick is selling the best
    Shocked to see 2chainz doing so well, I thought he was just the flavor of the week
    looks like he's got a real fan base though

    ASAP has a few songs on LLA that could push it towards gold.
    same thing with t.i.'s album

    rappers and labels need to keep pushing. it's like after the first week numbers come in they give up

    hip hop has a weird obsession with first week sales. while they are important, overall sales are WAY more important

    Katy Perry's album "One of the Boys" sold 47k albums, which in rap most would consider a flop. She went on to sell 1.5 mil in the US and 3 mil worldwide

    how long did that take though?...i agree there is a strange obsession about sales nowadays..Jay started it simply pointin out that we're up here wit the white folks too getting money...50 exploited it and bragged about it to make him seem more important...and Wayne just straight destroyed the benchmark wit Carter 3....becuz of that everyone(execs and artists) feels they have to hit it big off break to validate thier star power and worth(for thier next contract)

    damn Game...wtf is wrong wit dude's marketing plan?...album was cool but considering he claims he's a "big artist" he should be selling more.

    Dude hasnt grown as an artist. Its always the same shit with him. Sorta the same thing with Luda, it was cool at first then it just starts sounding redundant. Not saying he makes bad music but you gotta grown with your fanbase.

    And to add to what Ice said the Game can't market his album for real when you have more features than tracks on your album. How do your sell yourself to your fans when you not really giving them a full project of your own.
    (Nope)

  • I can't believe Game flopped like that, even though I don't support Game. I actually thought Jesus Piece was a pretty good album. Even though Chief Keef flopped too, I think he could possibly have a resurgence of sales if he drops another visual and pushes another one of the songs from his album as a single. His promotion for that album was terrible.

    true but this was suppose to be a "concept album"...i mean i wasn't expecting him to put out a Jesus themed album this time out and i'd really have to listen to his other ones to contrast but you are right his format is still the same hot beats, features, 50 cent name check, and some gun shots and gang signs...lol
