8-9 months ago people were saying Nicki/Drake were bigger than Wayne, what caused the downspiral ?

Nicki Mania was everywhere and it seemed that Drake could do no wrong, fastforward and the current status of both Nicki/Drake isn't as high as people predicted....

Drake is putting up big numbers but still not the numbers the hype predicted.... On the other hand Nicki the girl who had the media/radio in her palms fell flat on her face....

Now we cannot doubt how hot both of them were or are no matter what we think of their skillsets. The question is why neither blew on the same level of their mentor LiL Wayne when it seemed they were step for step or in Nicki's case even ahead of him ?

    i doubt it has anything to do with wayne being in the game for over 15 years and having 7/8 albums.

    Drake got 2 songs in the top 20 right now.... only rapper on there besides Nicki with that wackass Starships song

    I don;t know if Wayne bigger though... he is than Nicki probably
    Drake selling more than Jay-Z and Kanye combined with WTT right now
    not taking anything away for the both of them.. but if we talking right now... drake popular right now

    I mean for her to try distancing herself and start firing her management because she thought she was about to take off to the moon solo its gotta be a loyalty thing for wayne to still keep her around .....

    or dollar signs.

    If you wanted this thread to have any credibility you would have left your Drake hate at the door. If Nicki was what this thread was about then it could be easily co-signed.

    How Drake fall below expectations after breaking the #1's record? Still selling consistently going up toward 2 mil. He aint match the hype after outselling a Kanye and Jay JOINT album?

    After seeing Nicki second week sales though she could end up consistently selling her way up to gold and maybe plat like the first Pink Friday did.

    This is what I wanna know though cuh.

    Every time a YM album drops and it outsells whatever flop their favorite rapper coughed out niggas just start making up these claims of people overhyping it so they can feel like YM failed at something. "LOL ONLY A MILLION? I THOUGHT YOU GUYS SAID CARTER 3 WAS GOING TO SELL 40 BILLION ALBUMS THE FIRST WEEK. THE YM SHIP IS SINKING"

    he still hasn't sold more than wayne and my memory is sharp which is why last summer I remember cats in this forum saying both nicki/drake had grew to be larger than wayne ......

    Nicki and Drake were never as big as Wayne in my opinion.

    Drake has back-to-back platinum albums in two years he's okay.

    Nicki: the novelty might have worn off a bit.

    Has he ever outsold Wayne tho ? LOLOL. Well what niggas say and what actually happens is 2 different things. Shit fam according to the IC Biggie isn't one of the GOATS b/c he has 2 albums but 3k is with NO albums LOLOL. Maybe buzz wise but they were never bigger artists than him.
