    Sold out considerable big venues on tour (MSG and Staples as well as allot of the other cities)
    Performed his entire album at every show but still got people to keep coming
    Brought his Dreamville rappers on tour and got them national exosure
    Authentic interactions with fans/Inputting social commentary between songs at shows

    My thoughts during this season of L's is the drake diss wont kill his career but being back in jail or restricted by probation will. He is his own worse diss track the way he wasn't extra careful about travel on parole and his social media foolishness impacting his sentencing.

    the irony is ross ain't even really stick up for meek in the heat of the drake meek beef. And meek still outsold him lolol. And don't no mmg stan say ross stood up for him later on in the year. Ross always be saying some bullshit when meek/wale or now meed/drake have had beef. Ross be like "We family. Drake family and meek family and family fights sometimes nah mean? At the end of the day we all a bunch of bosses hungry for success huhhhh!". Shit don't be making any sense lol.

    No shit 3 months into the year. But my point is Cole sold then entire year on a good pace after releasing in december of the previous year. Most cole fans got the album in early December 2014 and or christmas week from an aunt or uncle or family in general buying it for them. Even after most fans bought the album in 2014 the album a million albums or so in 2015 were copped by new fans and new purchases. TPAB ain't have that type of impact and on tour kendrick claims he may stop performing the songs. Touring, Sales, and impact FHD > TPAB.

    Damn Compton didn't even go gold?!?!

    Somewhat surprising, but Dre didn't do one video or release any songs for radio play. I think this was just a quick album to ride alongside the Compton movie. It will eventually hit gold & platinum status though.

    Even more surprising is that TPAB has yet to go platinum domestically.
