        • Woahnow

          Not really if you look at Wayne and drake

        • Woahnow

          Carter 4 and 5 sold a mill first week and didn’t need samsung or sprint to buy 1million copies lol

  • bumpy johnson

    does not matter he got paid up front … hes gonna end up no 1 first week any way so …….

    • Woahnow

      Last 2 1 million copies were bought by sprint and samsung

      • bumpy johnson

        Na the 2nd week sales is what proves if Hov will end up with a no1 album or not … the whole sprint / Samsung deal is just him getting paid up front ….. he’ll never buy his albums that will be him hustlin backwards ………and he’s a true hustler ….

        • Woahnow

          Nah it’s the first week like wayne with his last to Carter’s had a mill

          • bumpy johnson

            BRUH the deal with sprint he did last week don’t determine his number one album … its what he sells this week and its clear he’s on his way to another no 1 album ……… shit is clear as day to see bruh …..

  • TKingLives

    So in other words his last two albums went platinum because he “bought” the status… He really didnt want his number 1 streak to end haha.

    • FaboLoso

      doesn’t matter how it went platinum it still went platinum

      • TKingLives

        Yeah i guess hes the only rapper people don’t complain about when he buys his own albums.

        • FaboLoso

          he isn’t buying his own albums..sprint brought them

          • TKingLives

            Through a deal with Jay haha, same shit. Not knocking the hustle but you can tell he was worried about sales on this one and his last so he set up those deals, smart man. Avoiding dat L

          • FaboLoso

            but without it he still was doing 300k in the first week..lol so, what exactly was he worried about?

          • TKingLives

            Breaking his number 1 streak haha, fuck idunno were going too far down the rabbit hole man haha, i still like him and the album

          • lennox buckles

            Get off his nuts boy

          • jurassicjrod

            the opinions on hip hop that are presented in this forum should come with the biggest fuckboi dickriding asterisk ever

          • FaboLoso

            you mad bro?

          • Woahnow

            300k ain’t drake or Wayne numbers

          • FaboLoso

            wayne numbers? lmao when’s the last time wayne released an wayne..in 2010? and as of drake..if it wasn’t for streaks he wouldn’t be selling shit, his last album only sold 250k without streams.

          • Woahnow

            At least he not buying his own album and Jay z beats are trash

          • FaboLoso

            jay-z isn’t buying his own album neither

          • Woahnow

            I can list to more songs on Wayne 4 song ep that Jay z bs just keeping it real lmfao

          • FaboLoso

            so in other words you like trash rap over good rap? to each his own

          • Woahnow

            Like I said Wayne…. now u know Wayne gonna sell a mill again lmfao and I bet he not gonna buy his own shit

          • FaboLoso

            lol yeah sure he is buddy sureeee

          • Woahnow

            When was the last time j dropped an album like 2010? And samsung had to buy it? And between that time he dropped like one song with kahlid

          • FaboLoso

            BP3 came out in 2010..MCHG came out in 2013, so about 5 years ago

          • Young Flacko

            lol you gassed that 250k without streams hard asf. Did we forget that nothing was the same and take care both cracked 600k in traditional sales?? And thank me later did almost 500k? Yea let’s not gas it that hard breh

          • FaboLoso

            Cool..but Drake’s last two albums have been supported heavily by streaming, “views” and “more life” a bulk of the sells for both albums came from streaming, remove the streaming numbers from both and those numbers will plummet.

      • Woahnow

        He pretty much can make all his albums go platinum because he’s the only one buying it lol

        • FaboLoso

          -hurt

    • Nicholas IcoNick Loomis

      Magna Carta still went platinum either way and so will 4:44.

      • Rome

        Yea but that doesn’t mean his number one album streak would still be going

      • TKingLives

        Umm yeah i know that haha… wow people are really missing my point, if it was revealed Drake was buying his own albums to go plat people would lose their shit.

  • Conner

    Satanist fuck em

  • AZ

    4:44 shoutout to Hova
    He still got the culture
    Waiting for NAS to drop, PARANOIA IN THE HOLSTER!!!! #East

    • Je’sus

      Nasty promised us a album 3 years ago

      • AZ

        Facts.

      • AZ

        Need that PARANOIA asap tho

      • Manny Bravo

        Nas said “My album done, niggas. Wait and see.”

        Lol, I guess we’re still in the “wait” part of his roll out.

        • Je’sus

          He probably waited for Jay to drop again so he can easily win lyricist of year, or some bs reason Bruh

    • flex

      nas album soon come

    • Woahnow

      Sorry but no one want to rap like Jay they would rather rap like wayne

  • Code Name Blonde

    Music that was actually great used to sell itself. Now dudes’ music is considered “great” because of scams like streaming or phone companies buying album copies before they’re ever released to the general public.

    • Ye’

      I thought the album was dope

  • One thing I can say is I know the world full of dick eaters thanks to this album Nas been saying this shit since Ill matic now niggas wanna dickeat this why he made the album for clowns like y’all but it’s a good album

    • bumpy johnson

      Nas and all the prophets before him .. NAS was not the first and he def won’t be the last ….

      • Rap wise Nas started the trend nobody else really cared politically beside Tupac besides that who else can you name oh yea public enemy also besides that nobody else really cared.

        • bumpy johnson

          Again I say salute to Nas and all the prophets before him and after him .heard of and un-heard of …for continually spreading the message in order to liberate the black man ……….

        • bumpy johnson

          The reason people reacting to the album more than anything else is because HOV is loudest in the room outta the bunch . but it’s clear he was not the first and he definitely won’t be the last too………..

          • Nah but again he slick as shit all this and that but I mean people respect money more than anything and still I like Nas better always have but I feel people are over conscious and don’t really understand the problem at hand

  • Manny Bravo

    Jigga still moving units. You’ve got to respect this man.

    On another note, I don’t understand why people are complaining about his Sprint deal. Any artist can have a company buy copies of their album. Jay is just one of the few who can do it on such a large scale.

  • Woahnow

    Carter 3 and 4. Mind as well say 5 to wouldnt be surprised if it went 1.5 mill

    • Young Flacko

      Carter 4 didn’t sell a mill first week. He fell short, but Carter 3 yes. And no matter what album wayne drops at this point, he’s more than likely not doing a mill because his music has not been great at all since the first no ceilings mixtape.

      • Woahnow

        964k is a mill.. c5 is a classic already

  • Kram Jackson

    You drop a CD and see how much you can sell even when you buy your own album.

  • OnTop412

    sales mean nothing classic rap has never been judged on sales streets don’t care about that shit top rap artist of all time don’t sale or win awards like that back mainstream shit
