Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" Breaks Jay-Z & Kanye West's First Week iTunes Sales Record

In just four days out, Weezy's latest sells more than 300,000 copies in the digital store.

Just a few weeks after Jay-Z and Kanye West broke the first week sales record for iTunes with Watch the Throne, Lil Wayne accomplished the same feat with his latest album Tha Carter IV in just four days.

According to HHNM, Weezy has sold more than 300,000 copies of his latest offering since it hit the web on early Monday at midnight. In its first week, TC4 is now expected to move between 925,000 and 975,000 copies, whereas earlier estimates put the album between 850,000 and 900,000 units.

In its first week out, Watch the Throne broke Coldplay’s previous iTunes record for first week sales, moving roughly 290,000 copies.

      LOL.....And i bet every last artist you named has respect for wayne. You can say what you will about wayne and hate but he will go down as a legend. He is a hard working artist and it is clear that you are just blindly hating for no reason. Top 200 500 1000...... Who selling more right now? Killyourself

    no doubt "watch the throne" is more important for the culture deep tracks on there.. im 100% sure watch the throne will sell more overall.. like if we look back on it it 10 years

      LOL @ WTT being "deep" Faggot. 90% of the album was talking about how great they are, how rich they are. WTT = luxury rap.

    • Anonymous

      are you serious?!? Deep raps? What the hell were you listening too? They were talking about how great they were and sounded awkward, after talking about how great they were in skills and bling, making two semi conscious tracks at the end. You want deep rap, listen to Nas/Marley Collab, even NWA talking about the street in straightouttacompton, ice cub, talib, common on day it will all make sense, but WTT is deep?!? gtfoh. Neither C4 nor WTT are deep, but C4 was just more versatile with different beat stylings, etc. I just don't see why folks feel their world is falling apart if someone can out game Jay Z? Jay Z is still great in his own right. Ya comments are biased and silly.

  • Amir23

    Wayne is just terrible. He's a very, very terrible rapper man. None of his songs make sense. Just because you confuse people with your ridiculous punch lines don't make you a great rapper. It's the ability to make great songs and Lil Wayne is not a great songwriter. He can't make a coherent song let alone a whole album. I don't understand why people like this guy, SMH.

      The albums pretty good and I was a juvenile fan, not a lil wayne fan. I didn't see what the big deal was about c3, his mixtapes, etc., I mean i liked parts of the album with GO DJ but didn't really like fireman. But album with A milli is where he started to up his game. I think as more singles come out, Wayne sales will indeed go up. Can't say the same about WTT, because HAM and OTIS are the best tracks on the album. I do like some other tracks. I admit i've been bumping WTT more than C4, but its so i can start liking it. I instantly felt lil waynes c4 and don't want to overplay it.

    FUCK LIL WAYNE. No straight up. He will never get the real respect as an MC because he straight garbage: 1) He's a faggot ass nigga wearing tight jeans like a bitch. No real niggaz wearin that. 2) No originality, concepts swagga jacks everything from clothes to the dumb shit he put it in his rhymes. 3) The little arrogant fuck had the nerve to disrespect 2Pac saying he wasn't a good rapper. 4) He got a shitload of ghost writers feeding him that nonsensical bullshit he raps: "I'm straight, my girl's a faggot" WTF? 5) He's a fake ass blood, paid his way into the gang cuz he pussy. He'd get his ass beat in a real fight. If you actually believe this weasel can scrap? Kill yoself!!! 6) He suck dick and take it in his ass. Birdman been raping this nigga since he was 9 years old AND taking his money. He kiss Birdman all n' his mouth. WHO THE FUCK GON RESPECT YOU IN HIP HOP IF RUNNIN AROUND KISSING NIGGAZ? THAT BITCH ASS NIGGA just want attention that's he screaming he the best rapper alive. Fuck outta here.

    Wayne is winning y'all he go sell more than your favorite underground artist!!!! At the end of the day i am a wayne fan and been one since he debuted on b.g true story album.... He has progressed as a emcee and is now on cruise control and he can do that because he has paid his dues in hiphop. Hate all you want he will not read this and he not miss a step or lose sleep over you hating faggots. So with that said the spotlight is on you....tell em why you mad son!!!!!! need some tissue brah?

  • WestCoast Cali

    And the whole rappin with subject thing is a preference thing, and overrated. First of all every possible story has already been told, and how many fucking stories or messages can you deliver if you been rappin damn near 20 yrs. Pac was the greatest story teller, And I feel that style died with him. Im not looking at these guys to be role models, Im just looking for something I could slap in the car. And half the artist people claim to deliver a message in there music, don't be talking about shit either. You use a couple big words in your verse, and pay respect to a KRS-one, Mos Def, and what that makes you tight? Not everybody is in to that shit, no disrespect tto the two of them, there dope, just making a point

  • WestCoast Cali

    I don't know why people waste there time going on websites to hate on other people. I mean some of you guys believe because you logged onto hiphopdx to say Wayne's new single or new album is trash, that will stop the other 10 million fans around the world from listening and buying. I understand that everyone has there own preference of music, but if its a artist I dont listen to, I dont waste my time clicking on the link. Im not goin to make it a personal issue against a artist that I will never meet, and making a living for thereselves. Thats just plain hating, and there is too much of that in this world as it is. We all have our favorite artist, and we tend to be negative and bias towards certain artist who get the most attention. If anything you should applaud wayne for his longevity in this rap game. I mean Im 26 and I swear dude been doing it since I was like 12-13 yrs old. And the simple fact that its 2011, and he still doing first week numbers like that with todays cd sales is crazy. The rest of these cats need to step it up, and stop hating. I feel Wayne dumbed down his lyrics purposely because everyone is biting that style, instead of going harder and make wayne step his shit back up. Its a business before anything else.

  • Anonymous

    I don't understand how anybody can pay for this trash, only 2 good tracks 3 are decent. 2 of them lil wayne isn't even on, wayne's verses hold no meaning to them the whole album and Nas delievers the best verse but too bad that track is ruined by shyne's horrible obnoxious lyrics.

    After sales meet a certain number they do not matter...To say The Carter IV is better the Watch The Throne is ineffably asinine... Lil Wayne is not a bad rapper but when you have a song made of just metaphors theres a problem. Although there are some songs that contain an actual story line or meaning...

    i don't know anybody who bought this album. they either downloaded it or said they hated it. even wayne fans i know hate it. It seems like the “rappers” (and I use that term loosely) who use auto tune and be singing on all their songs, are praised more than the actual rappers who don’t use tricks and gimmicks to sell their music. That just shows how bad off the rap game is. And I’m sorry but those numbers are suspect boo… His last albums Rebirth sold 176,000 copies its first week & I am not a Human Being sold 108,800 its first week. Now all of a sudden without any real smash hits the Carter 4 is going to sell around 700-850 thousand copies?! BOY BYE! Something in the water aint right and I’m calling bullshit!

Wanye gets nothing but hate (at least he has double entendres and metaphors and good beats) and the simple ass nursery rhyming, incoherent and boring generic bullshit on a beat for 10 dollars called Nasty gets praised? LMAO, something is wrong here. Switch the names of the two and look how the ratings will change. Hey, Wayne was on Nas' album (where he was outshined by Damian constantly) and Nas is on Wayne album. Get this whack fuck outta the rap game. Calling an album Hip Hop Is Dead and himself sounding like the Game didn't need him anymore. All the Nas fans should buy AZ's next album who has been better since they first appeared together.

    You don't think Kendrick or Cole would retire instantly for having these sales once. Everyone, I repeat, EVERY SINGLE artist dreams of this, others is all lies. It's a business. There are no sell-outs. Music is supposed to be heard by the broadest mass possible. And it's a form of entertainment, nobody wants to hear someone crying about the shit on this planet with reaching 1000 people. GTFOH! You can deny it all you want, deep down, you know it's true.

    Jujitsu - I see your point, but the great thing about this country is nobody's forcing you to listen to Tha Carter IV. If it's too brain dead, go bump some Rakim. Being lyrical used to mean something. Now rappers who take pride in what they're saying find themselves labeled as boring, and while that may be slightly unfair, it's also unfair to assume that the best rap has to always have a message, cause that's just not the case anymore.

  • JUJITSUBADBOY

    BULLETIN: THE STATE OF HIPHOP/RAP HAS REACHED AN ALL TIME LOW...when the general public invests money in artists who only make words rhyme without the presence of coherence and relevance. Look folks...lil weezy is only as artistic as the tight jeans he wears with his ass hanging out which is not very masculine might I add and definitely not "gangster"! Hip hop and the rap genres are suffering bitterly at the hands of individuals who pose as artists. As bad as the economy is, which is why all record sales are suffering, people find cause in buying lil wayne's music only because he is deemed as being popular. There are rappers out such as Eminem, Game, Nas, Scarface, and Jay Z who constanly rip microphones to shreds with their solid skills of coherently telling fascinating stories their reality and how they see the worls as we know it through their rhymes!! This is the very essence of what we came to love about hip hop and the rap game. You need to stop supporting artists who dont take the time to at least bring you nothing but their very best offerings, in terms of music, when they try to convince you to spend your money to make them rich and live in oppulence while the majority of our society lives mediocre at best. All the comments on here that say or imply that lil wayne is the best when it comes to rapping is apparently unaware and misguided as to what real skill sounds like on the microphone!!

      You missed the point "miss anonymous"...it is not about the numbers of records sold or popularity. Hell if it was that then Vanilla ice woulda been considered a great rapper but we all know that is not the case!! The argument I made is in reference to how weak and limited lil wayne is when it comes to rapping. Great MCs make you envision their intent when they rhyme..u feel the connection because they make sense when they are telling their stories. Lil wayne is good at being popular and that's about it. The nonsensical, mundane bullshit that comes outta his mouth is not worth it's weight in gargage. Spend your money on artists that take the time to show you skill as well as coherence so that you wont feel as though you have spent your money on some rudimentary, Dr. Suess shit!

      so then why did lil wayne beat jay and ye? i mean jay and ye are just as popular and have just as many if not more albums under their belt? so why did wayne beat then in only 4 days? hmmm maybe because hes a good artist and people like his music. he makes good music. and if you listened to tha Carter 4 then you would realize that wayne has some metaphoric lines that nobody would have thought of. not jay. not ye. maybe em just cuz hes the best at that shit but come. dont hate on the nigga cuz hes good. i aint no dick rider stan weezy fan cuz i like all of jays albums and kanyes. but think critically. i kno its hard for you, but just try. peace.

    I am a fan of Weezy and Jay. Been a fan since the Juvey/Hot Boys days; and Reasonable Doubt era. This album may have sold a lot, but it was kind of like a 1st round bust. I had high expectations and I was disappointed. Like 50 Cent, it seems like Wayne is only at his best on mixtapes and guest apperances. I Am Not a Human Being is just slightly behind this offering. Not the classic I was expecting. Watch the Throne is not a classic either, but at least there was creativity and serious thought behind the concept of the album-nothing else out like it, which made it a great album. Carter IV is just good...after all the hype, that is unacceptable...especially with the flashes of greatness I have seen in his previous work.

    argue it all you like but this just pissed Jigga right off, i dont like Jay or Wayne fuck em both, but fact is all Jay cares about is creating the illusion he is great with meaningless figures and sales so this mos def hurt Jay of course we all think Baby bought a load of units jus like Jay bought a load of his units but at the end of the day Wayne camp did the better numbers n thats gotta piss Jay off ALOT side not BOTH ALBUMS SUCK

  • PRINCEJIMMY11

    Record sells has 0 impact on how i rate my artist:The people who are hurt by this are the people who care about record sells:Infact, i can tell you EXACTLY who they are: They're those Jay-Z & Eminem stans who always say "Jay-z has Beyonce, Jay-Z has 11 number 1 albums, Jay-Z beat Nas because he went on to have a better career, Eminem is the all time leader in HipHop record sells" Those are the stans who are crying because REAL HipHop fans know record sells don't mean much:It's about the actual art:The product in itself:Carter 4 is probably the worst album of 2011 and sold the most ...... PROOF TO WHAT I'M SAYING:Record sells means almost nothing: So the people who are butthurt by this news, are people who aren't knowledgeable HipHop fans anyhow:

      Actually there are rappers who come to HipHopDX.com and read the feedback on their music:I've talked to Royce Da 5'9 [via Twitter] who says he comes are frequently to read responses to his and other artist's music:I also talked to Hoodfella [via Twitter] who too explained to me that he read and post here on this site so i do believe a lot of other artists visit this site: And listen, you're just another stan who cares too much about albums sells:I'm pretty sure a lot of Lupe, J.Cole, Slaughterhouse, B.o.B, and Wale's fans did go out and buy their albums but have it occurred to you that maybe Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, and Kanye just has a bigger fan-base than those guys?Did that ever run across your mind? They have supporters, just not as much as the established veterans:OBVIOUSLY!!!

    • malco

      It is true that many people don't support good music enough and complain about it...but most of the hate especially from me is that Hip Hop fans are supporting a garbage rapper rather than being captivated by the many better rappers out there..so imagine if people were listening to these so called "indie" rappers...wayne's fan base is obviously bigger than everybody else...so I ask you ...you really think it's because people don't support other rappers enough or is because there's not enough support these days for non-dumbed-down music? Have you not realized that just by making talentless music people are making a killing and guess what people support them thats why we have soulja boy, waka floka lil b...'cus I know that I support my favorite artists...but you do have a (small) point

      Scrap Game out of that list and insert Kendrick Lamar. The disbelief is that even though it's OBVIOUSLY apparent that this ugly looking, neutral in his hood wearing clown has no content and no real skill no people buy his music and support him just because its the "cool" thing to do. You have to be a complete idiot to believe that he spent more than a month working on the album..so to all his fans you just got punked...now he can keep rapping about how much richer he is than you, about Dre, promote violence and never give you anything back but more of the lackluster music..Kendrick's album just came out and is waaayyyy better why aren't his sales better?...because the majority of people are brainwashed into believing stripping, tattoo-changing gayme and frenemies are it. have a good day and by the way your caps aren't on. You didn't get my whole point, instead of complaining about Wanye and his fans, you should put this effort into supporting your favorite artist. Complaining without doing anything is lame as fuck and for people who are groupies and cry that their already rich, favorite artist doesn't sell as much.

    damn everybodys acting like Weezy reads these comments lol. If you don't like the album. Buy music you do like! It's that FUCKING simple. Everybody on these comment sections and every other hip-hop website/blog says that SECTION#80 was a classic (haven't heard it so can't say) but Lamar only sold like 5 thou first week. Seems to me like y'all are complaining about album sales but aren't contributing Lil' Wayne has fans that pay for his music and that's why he's selling. Hate it or love it

    quote- Just Bein Honest: Not surprising. Rebirth went gold and I Am Not A Human is nearly plat and it released with ZERO promotion. The only rapper who has a better fanbase than Wayne is Eminem. With that said, as we all know, sales have never been indicative of quality. This CD is a prime example. "Call me Tunechi or Young Tuna Fish" â€oeI donâ€(TM)t give a f**k. You faker them some titties, you get titty f**ked.” â€oehave it your way…Burger King” "When it Waynes it Pours" "Boy Im goin in.....like my water broke" "I do it for the money...man I am such a hooker" How to Love (from the same guy who We be Steady Mobbin and Birdman Jr) And the often repeated "Weezy F, and the F is for...." "Tools on deck.... Home Depot"

    It's a shame to see mediocrity do so well. Birdman got crates of this album stashed somewhere. There was no way I was expecting an album of this quality to sell so much. 700K, whatever, but if we're talking 900-950K....SMH

  • William Grizzly

    How much you wanna bet Birdman spend at least a milli on copping 100,000 of those records. No wonder that dragon ball z headed muhfugga can't pay the note on his Bentley. But I guess this crooked business move will pay off since it not only gives weezy bragging rights and he gets a percentage of his money back. This album is straight trash though, thats coming from a lil wayne fan too. Lyrically it's turrrrrible. and for whoever is mentioning watch the throne. that album is ahead of it's time. knuckle head bastards

      hah my point exactly. grow the fuck up. if you took that shit personal then you're a clown. your jeggings must be too tight. let that shit breathe son. and the way birdman blows his money, why you think cash money is getting sued all the time for not paying their producers. noone's hatin. i guess you skipped the part where i said i was a weezy fan. and what the fuck i gotta be worried about? its clear you dont know how i'm livin. ignorant bitch ha haaaa birdman copped 1/4 of all those albums, the rest were probably copped with allowance money.

  • Logic

    I had a debate with a friend of mine who's into Weezy. I bumped this album (streamed, thank God I didn't purchase) and showed him corny stupid suspect lines that are littered throughout Tha Carter IV. All he and most fans of Weezy can say are sales, its as if mans defending the dude are making the money themselves. Last time I checked, the amount of money or sales an artist had do not make an album more enjoyable to me. Also, when your two best tracks on YOUR album don't feature YOU, there's a problem. I'm not knocking his hustle, I'm knocking the lyrics and skill on the album.

    • room2roam

      @j-dub i was not "attacking" him just giving my opinion on one of the comments in the original comment (read again if you missed it). we all have opinions and as far as wayne's style, it's worse than jay imo. i could care less about any of their attire, again it was just an opinion.

    • J-Dub

      @room2roam - Your reply doesn't even approach the conversation with a legitimate argument. Jay-Z's clothes? That's what you choose to attack? Really? Especially after Wayne showed up in certified women's pants at the VMA's like it was okay. Whatever, if you are choosing to side with Wayne on that one, that's impossible for me to make my point. Figure out which Wayne wagon you're on and why your in it. I'll check his music out from time to time but I can't defend this dude against anything he does (nor can I for Jay-Z). But I won't make up some weird ass lines and then talk about "c'mon son" just cuz...? Yeah, who knows. Truthfully - grow up.

    • room2roam

      come on son! jay is NOT stylish. that n1gga cant dress for shyt. i dnt give a flying f*&k what any1 says that n1gga need a stylist and B aint it cuz she need one too. u might hav paper but that does NOT mean u got style. everything else i agree with but style....N. that nigga be lookin funny in alotof shyt thta he wear. AND weezy better than him LOL.. go head be son #3 and tell me why u mad son

    • J-Dub

      Honestly man, I'm all for respecting Wayne's career. He's to the point where he sells records and that's good for him and his team. He's got a strong following so that speaks for his ability to remain relevant for the long haul. HOWEVER, I have no clue where anyone can put up the argument that he is worth a comparison to Jay-Z. Every time I read articles, comments, and other media placing those two in the same weight class it truly disappoints me. Jay-Z and Nas are (for the most part) the last two relics of hip-hop's greatest (and arguably most dangerous) era. Argue that 2Pac didn't like neither one of them, but he did goes as far to acknowledge them - something I can't see Wayne getting from Pac. Big was one of Jay-Z's best friends (and Nas at one point too) so we don't even need to do that. And honestly, Wayne is associated with a fake movement from the No Limit era - something you don't hear anyone mention. Master P and the rest of No Limit had blueprinted and took to action exactly what Cash $ ended up doing; with the same roots to match (New Orleans). Like I said, I respect Wayne's success - and from time to time he has shown his ability to be a great MC. But witty lines over enough time eventually end up boring and that's the big reason most people don't like Carter IV. This about the battle rap game - alive and well still huh? Wrong, because many people aren't as impressed by that as much as they used to be. Funny, witty lines are only worth a short time of most people's attention before they will ask someone to get serious and speak with substance. And as far as that Blood shit go - yeah, Pac would've cut that shit out - as far as "on wax" goes - if he was still around; pussy movements really. I'm waiting for our young generation to grow up and acknowledge that there is a time when your mind wants to get more from their appetite for hip-hop than Wayne has been dishing out. Best of luck to all artists - get money regardless. But never expect to have a bulletproof legacy if what you do isn't bulletproof to begin with (kissing old men in the mouth, wearing tights, skater/rocker front, etc.). Jay as well as many others have already said it "...So ni*** in a glass house should not throw stones..."

    • Colo Colo Congo

      so you really wanna say that Wayne fans only point at his sales? Thats 90% of what Jigga been talking about since day 1. Yall can't ball on my level, still spending money from 88, more money more cash more hos, yall ain't got my baby money. c'mon sun. i agree wayne isn't the yin and yang of what it means to be lyrical. but I do give that man his propers. I believe Wayne's legacy is one that will be best appreciated when it has come full circle. I'm east coast. my ipod is 90s and select joints since. but u gotta recognize that this man is indeed the rep of a demographic that DOES NOT identify Jayz as their everything like so many others do. and most people respect jay more for being rich and getting richer than his actual prowess. he's stylish yes. he makes shit fly. he's COOL. but that doesn't make him the greatest and he knows it. which is why he constantly refers to his number 1 albums and how much money he has.

    And to think Carter 4 could've went platinum in one week if wayne had a stronger 1st single. It's still a very good look. I hear the carter 5 will be the last and final Carter. Also I hope you lames don't start that Baby bought all the albums shit. Don't you fools know that no one buys their own CD's. Cuz if they did they won't be getting all that money that they spent on those albums completely back. They will only get a small recording artist's percentage back for that money spent. Who would be dumb enough to do that.

  • JUJITSUBADBOY

    THE STATE OF HIPHOP/RAP HAS REACHED AN ALL TIME LOW...when the general public invests money in artists who only make words rhyme without the presence of coherence and relevance. Look folks...lil weezy is only as artistic as the tight jeans he wears with his ass hanging out which is not very masculine might I add and definitely not "gangster"! Hip hop and the rap genres are suffering bitterly at the hands of individuals who pose as artists. As bad as the economy is, which is why all record sales are suffering, people find cause in buying lil wayne's music only because he is deemed as being popular. There are rappers out such as Eminem, Game, Nas, Scarface, and Jay Z who constanly rip microphones to shreds with their solid skills of coherently telling fascinating stories their reality and how they see the worls as we know it through their rhymes!! This is the very essence of what we came to love about hip hop and the rap game. You need to stop supporting artists who dont take the time to at least bring you nothing but their very best offerings, in terms of music, when they try to convince you to spend your money to make them rich and live in oppulence while the majority of our society lives mediocre at best. All the comments on here that say or imply that lil wayne is the best when it comes to rapping is apparently unaware and misguided as to what real skill sounds like on the microphone!!

  • jnr

    Wow, i can't believe the amount of hate on this site. Yes i don't listen to Wayne either but c'mon people, give credit where it's due. It's funny majority of the people hating are Jay fans. Jay and Kanye released WTT and even though Game's RED album was better than it, WTT still sold way more than RED, same way WTT is way better than C4 and yet it sells better than WTT, accept it people C4 is selling. Now only ignorant fools will think Birdman bought most of the albums because like someone said unless they got over 300,000 credit cards to buy it on itunes then ya'll can shut the fuck up. It's against the law to buy your own shit and not make the market fair, it doesn't make sense. Jay said numbers dont lie so there it is and before the Jay haters come at me with the facts of "Jay has sold more albums than Wayne bla bla".... This has nothing to do with how many you sold in your career, it's about how many you are selling, maybe in due time Wayne will eventually sell more like Jay. I'm not a fan of Wayne and never will be but give the guy credit, whether it's 13yr olds or 20yr olds buying the album, the album is still selling, so just deal with it haters!

  • jurrell

    actually the album got average reviews i looked it up most said he could do better and hes getting lazy with his word play which is true this should be his last album because carter VI will be way worse i liked more carter 4 songs then watch the throne thats me and yea we get it wayne did kiss baby its gay and we shouldnt act like it didnt happen but denis rodman dresses like a woman and wears lipstick he said he aint gay ppl first week sales dont matter but when an album costs 10.99 and sells a million the company has made its money back who cares about the rest? if baby does buy waynes album that sucks and ruins the sales but think about it alot of other ethnicities other then black like wayne and they buy albums so all the white dudes and girls that like black music will buy and thats alot of ppl

  • True Bearer

    His fans have been anticipating this album for three years! So of course they are going to run out in buy it in large droves. The feedback of the product they wayne put out is very very bad. So with all the negative reviews and criticisms, wayne will be hit very hard his second week. All the disappointments won't show till the weeks after. That's why even Mack Maine said first week is no big deal, it's the weeks after that they're worried about.

  • DAdd

    I have read so many negative and positive comments on this page.....and must say this not a surprise. Why are people still live in the past? Don't act like Shawn Carter has not made a subpar CD. Yes he has and it has sold millions. So why not give another artist the same do. Wayne and Shawn are in different lanes and all nay-sayers need to recognize that. Last comment if you don't like it don't listen to it. It is still hip hop and your negative thoughts will not change that.

    Hmmm..... The Illiteracy on Dx is borderline sickening, I swear. First, first week sales only mean a certain artist has a huge fanbase. All the artist fans will definitely rush out the first week to copped their individual fav album(s) Lady Gaga's Born This Way debuted with 1.1million about 4months ago, but the total sales of that album as of now is barely above 1.5m. Adele's "21" Debuted with 300k+, but that album is currently heading for 3x platinum. And Worldwide sales of that album is above 10m. Lady Gaga sold more than 2m copies worldwide in her first week, but worldwide total so far is just 4.5m. Eminem's Recovery debuted with 741k, C3 debuted with 1m. Recovery is already 4x platinum(1year+ old). C3(Almost 3years old) is still around 3.4m total. Slim Shady Lp debuted with 200k+, but SSLP is already 5x platinum... Bruno Mars debuted with about 150k+, but his album is already 1.5m. MBDTF did 450k+ in the first week, but still around 1.2m total. All am saying is, first week sales is no big deal C4 might do a milli first week and eventually drop 80% in the second week. My predictions for C4 W1----900k+ W2----200k+ W3----100k+ W4----50+ W5----30+ Max C4 will do is double platinum !

    • Anonymous

      Eminem has a really loyal fanbase that has stood by over the years and Wayne has only become a superstar in recent times. Plus Eminem had two hit singles that kept him going. Love the Way You Lie really boosted sales and kept the momentum going. Bottom line is comparing Em to Wayne as far as sales go is pointless.

    • Anonymous

      Just wanted to add --> FUCK WAYNE!

      and obviously cIV sales percentage would drop 80% cuz most people went out and bought it week 1 haha come on man think a little... artists who sell 400k week one and 400k week too didnt lose any sales percentage but they still less than a mill...

    • waz

      Eminem doesn't put out as much music as wayne that is a major reason that his album continues to sell more over time

  • jdubcreative

    Didn't Jay-Z get accused of buy his own album (Kingdom Come) when estimates started coming out that he was gonna sell close to 900k?

    • True

      Yeah but it sold 680,000 copies and with the anticipation for his comeback that wasn't to far off at all. Jay averages 400-plus in first week sales for every album. So that's how you know people are actually buying the albums, whereas wayne's numbers are suspicious.

  • paperchaser

    This is like witnessing a competition you know is fixed.

  • Dom

    This doesn't make sense at all, something is fishy about this. Didn't Baby say he was pushing for a million his first week? Something is up for real. They are definitely cheating and manipulating with the numbers. You must be living under a rock if you don't think young money and cash money are playing with the numbers. When have you ever heard a movie get nothing but bad reviews and become number one in the box office? Answer never. People hope you realize that soundcan doesn't track where the sales are coming from. So anybody can take a million dollars and buy their albums back. That way you push up the sales, so when people see your doing huge numbers there goes more sales for you.

    • yep...

      yep....go to every store and get the 200-300 copies they have on hand...best buy, target, etc....oh, without looking suspicious too...and go on iTunes with thousands of different cards that would TAKE AT LEAST A WEEK TO DO ALONE JUST CREATING ACCOUNTS...STFU YOU SOUND LIKE A DAMN FOOL.

      personally I'm still bumping Bad Meets Evil in the car, and don't like Watch the Throne at all except for a song or two. But the real reason Bad Meets Evil won't do Eminem type numbers is because it's under the name Bad Meets Evil, not Eminem and Royce present Hell the Sequel. Most of the world doesn't know he ever had a duo with Royce and are completely unaware of it now. This was an album for his hardcore audience

    Yeah that's not surprising when you have a lot of young white girls who don't know shit about hip hop with access to the computers. This album sucks dick and everybody knows it. I don't care if it does will smith, mc hammer or vanilla ice numbers it's garbage. "Real" hip hop world thinks waynes trash and until he gets respect from us he'll never never ever be among the greats. Come on people we all know young money and cash money bought back 300,000 copies from retailers. They know perception is everything, they figure if people see that it's selling they'll want to go out and buy the album to see what the fuss is about. Plus is a distraction they're trying to take from the 95% negative reactions.

  • Just Bein Honest

    Not surprising. Rebirth went gold and I Am Not A Human is nearly plat and it released with ZERO promotion. The only rapper who has a better fanbase than Wayne is Eminem. With that said, as we all know, sales have never been indicative of quality. This CD is a prime example. "Call me Tunechi or Young Tuna Fish" “I don’t give a f**k. You faker them some titties, you get titty f**ked.” “have it your way…Burger King” "When it Waynes it Pours" "Boy Im goin in.....like my water broke" "I do it for the money...man I am such a hooker" How to Love (from the same guy who We be Steady Mobbin and Birdman Jr) And the often repeated "Weezy F, and the F is for...." "Tools on deck.... Home Depot"

      They didn't flop, they only went gold. Half a mill in sales isn't bad at all these days. Most fans buy their favorite artists discs even if it may not be that good. They have loyalty. Another thing is that the younger generation have been bumping to rappers rapping about skinny jeans. Wayne would certainly be king after listening to that. Hov and Ye would not be in their interest because it's ahead of their time. IMO

      Noone gets it.I think i've heard that even rebirth went gold.Wayne's success never made any sense anyway

    • becuase...

      for those two instances, people became smarter and decided not to purchase bad music, but now they have progressively gotten dumber and bought into Wayne's shit again.

  • Billy Bucks

    how does this dude have any credibility left after that "rock" album? And don't give me that creative expression shit. He's really not that good. All this sales record means is a record amount of people purchased a garbage album off itunes this past week. THAT'S IT

    i hope you not letting these record sells think he the best rapper alive because it's to many rappers that sold more records than him.wayne has 7 gold albums jay-z has ZERO GOLD ALBUMS JAY-Z ALBUMS always go platinum. his earley albums where weak he just started selling recors on the carter 3 how long he been rapping? DMX will crush lil wayne album sales so how can wayne be even close to THE THRONE haha he just started to get hot.you wayne fans must be on that purple shit his skill level is not even close to jay-z you know how many 5mic albums or 5 star albums jay-z has cmon yall got them tights on fuckin up your thought process.pick any classic album you want from jay-z and it will smash any wayne album you call a classic.since you like NUMBERS He has sold approximately 50 MILLION albums worldwide, while receiving THIRTEEN GRAMMY AWARDS 12 number one ALBUMS IN A ROW 17 gold or multi PLATINUM SINGLES and thats just the music no need to talk about his business ventures its crazy. if you want you can give wayne a HIGH CHAIR but a THRONE hahah HELL NOOOO

  • godbody

    Great for wayne! his album is pretty good. he gotta couple suspect moments but he got some gems. dont see it being better than 'throne' or 'red' but dem shits just came out. let dem joints soak in & see me in Nov or Dec.

    No flow terrible delivery generally garbage lyrics (although on some RARE occasions he's decent,) no creativity, autotune, etc. Now i sit back and watch the hater comments flood in because they can't defend Weezy's nonexistant skills.

  • Truth

    wayne fans are young and college bound punk rockers u know

  • Shane

    I think there's something to the claim that gay men love Lil Wayne. Think about the numbers. Lady Gaga has the highest 1st week sales this year, and Wayne is about to meet, or break that mark..... coincidence? I think not. This is pop music. Not hip hop or rap, so how can you compare it to the best hip hop records out there? The only thing hip hop was the interlude and the outro. NaS killed it. WTT, Cole World, and Life's Good...all day!

      lol this is exactly what's wrong with society. They root for the wrong people. Just outta curiosity what are you so cheerful for? What do you get out of it? Wayne was already filthy rich to begin with, are you happy he's getting more rich? Did ur $14 help out poor weezy? Are you getting any of that money that Wayne's bout to be getting? Does wayne know you or give a fuck about you? Lol "cmon son"

  • lies

    "MEN LIE, WOMEN LIE, NUMBERS DONT" -JAY Z LMAO!!!!

    • Sir Tenly

      Every one knows that albums aren't selling like they used to. Possibly because of the economy. Wayne will have a hard time catching up to Hov. Even Jay-Z couldn't sell as many today as he did years ago. The best go double platinum if lucky and the good might go gold. Every one else sells barely anything. If Wayne was as hot 10 years ago as he was for Carter III & IV he could have easily went close to diamond. Ludacris and Nelly were murking Hov album sales at that time.

      Jay-Z still has sold a lot of albums. Each of Jay-Z's albums have sold over a million copies, which can not be said for Wayne, who still has five albums that have yet to cross the one million mark

    you can tell we live in america...we someone does good whether it's in music, movies, sports, etc. people quick to come up with a theory about why that person is so popular. 300+ million people (majority 18 years and older) gone like who they want and just because you don't, don't mean others gone agree with your theory as to why that individual shouldn't be or achieve what they did. reading where people say he has a large gay fan base or cash money buying a million copies themselves or whatever, but yet you come on everyday just to say something negative like that's gon to change anything. a person can't do well without something be wrong about it. but to just talk negative about a topic over and over is crazy. you have the freedom to not listen and support it. thinking you can come on here and rally others to agree with you is stupid. and what's even more crazy is that you make it your business to see if something about wayne or ross is on hiphopdx every single day just to click and type something negative about it. wayne and ross can do something good and yet people gon say something bad about the situation. it's beyond stupid to even carry yourself in that manner. yea we got the freedom to say what we wanna say in this country, but at the same time, be somewhat intelligent about it too. i'm not the biggest wayne fan myself, but to come on a website and discuss theories as to why he shouldn't be where he is pointless. learn to congratulate peoples it goes a long way.

      noone gave a fuck about wayne back in 1999.He's famous since 2007 dude.

      Trust me if Wayne was a lyrical genious who carries hip hop to another level all this negativity would be reduced.Of course some people are just jealous failures who hate anything has to do with success,but there are also people who judje the material and believe that his product will be detrimental to the culture in the long run.

    • L-Boogie

      You can tell we live in America because the media and stans worship every rapper/celebrity thats popular for the moment. Whether it's wack rappers like Wayne or overrated rappers like Jay-z to overrated actors like Christian Bale. Ya'll worship and dickride everything they say and do!!!

    Seriously?Well,what can i say if you really like that music go ahead.I guess everyone has different taste.

  • Rcw

    Here's the thing bout lil Wayne and please no idiots call me a hater. He is the current trend. Do any of remember Ja rule, 50 cent & Nelly all three of them were just as big as Wayne at one time. But the problem is they all r talentless and couldn't stay relevant cuz there just a fad. In 1-2 years we will b saying remember Lil Wayne. Let's b honest the Carter 4 is awful, sorry but it is. Once someone else comes along and gets ppl's attention the kind of music listeners who buy these artists music will move on. It's just the way it works, 50 cent was twice as big as lil Wayne in his prime. No he's the joke of rap, Wayne is just trendy, I mean come on I can write a lil Wayne lyric. He's one - I'm sitting on the couch, couch potato. Hahahahaha. I feel bad for good rappers that can't get exposer cuz of Wiz, Wayne, drake, Ross, Imagime if these goof balls came out in the late 90's hahahahahahahaha. I really feel bad for the 20 year old who have to say they grew up on this crap. I'm 31 and I grew up on Biggie,PAC,Eminem,DMX.Jay,Nas,Pun,Lox,Wu-tang. Rap kinda sucks these days!!!

    • aarontodavis

      @Waynesucks: Negro do yo hw b4 u make an ignorant comment. 50's first single"In da club" was produced by Dre. U call dat no help? His albulm featured Eminem,Snoop Dogg & members of G-Unit..50 had tremendous help from Em and Dre, all he had to do was write rhymes cuz dey gave him sick beats

    • Anonymous

      Lil Wayne a "current trend." STFU! He been doing this shit solo since 1999. It's 2011. Most of your favorite rappers ain't doing shit. DMX, WU TANG, etc rap career was Over before Ross, Drake came to the scene. Yes, you still enjoy your favorite rapper old shit because their new shit is garbage.

    • Wayne Sucks

      50 Cent became big by himself.remember he had nutthin but enemies and nobdy liked him at all but he wass and still is a better artist den wayne.everybody kissing waynes ass and sucking his dick.nobody did dat to 50 and yet he still manage to dominate it back den.50 has moer talent den wayne and wayne hasss ghost writers.people juss hate to accept da face dat WAYNE SUCKS

    • The Truth

      Actually if you think about it, 50 from 2003 to 2005 was bigger than Wayne is now. 50's first two albums have sold just about the same number of copies as all nine of Lil Wayne's studio albums And we think of Nelly as a joke now, but he sold over 20 million copies of his albums and only Eminem outsold him last decade

    • JOE6PACKNCGBOR336

      yall said that when C3 drop on this same site back in 08 3years later C4 shitted on everything like C3 did keep it up haters

    • aarontodavis

      I agree w/dis to an extent cuz there's always gonna be an artist dat dominates da game. Back then, there were more but now only a few but the difference is dat Wayne's work ethic is untouchable. Any1 in da industry will tell u dat, whether u think he sux or not, he's constantly on features or creating albulms or mixtapes for his fans. He hasnt lost his drive or passion for music like 50, Nelly, Ja & some others. dats y he standsout

    • L-Boogie

      I agree. Mainstream rap is so garbage that I actually miss the days when 50 Cent and Ja Rule were big because atleast they had some songs that were good. That's how bad mainstream rap is today!

    • Anonymous

      Exactly it's just a matter of time before he gets lost in oblivion.Remember how 50 fans were convinced that 50 did in two years what hov did in a decade lmao.I don't understand why people get so upset about it.Let the kid get his money and entertain his crowd.Ignore him and soon you won't have to tolerate him.

    Jay-z and kanye are watching the throne while lil wayne sits on it! lol numbers don't lie right jay? lol

    • Shut up Fanboy

      Nigga please wayne has one multi-platinum album, Jay has seven multi-platinum albums. Jay's breakout in 98 album sold 5 million records in the US alone and he didn't if sell million his first week, he only sold 300-plus and it was number one on the billboard 200 for whole month. Wayne's breakout in 2008 Carter 3 sold a million it's first week, then only sold 3 million in total lol Wayne has been on top of the game for three years now, but Jay has been dominating the game for near two decades. Everything Jay drops goes double or platinum from soundtracks-collabs.
