Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" Certified Double Platinum

Weezy crosses the double milli mark with his latest offering.

Lil Wayne's latest album Tha Carter IV has been certified double platinum after three months in stores (via HHNM).

The RIAA certified the album, which neared a million copies sold in its first week, on November 16th. Though the LP has shipped more than two-million units, TC4 has only actually sold 1,700,000 copies.

Tha Carter IV, released on August 29, 2011, features guest appearances from Drake, Tech N9ne, Cory Gunz, Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes and more, and has also spawned the singles "6 Foot 7 Foot," "She Will" and "How to Love."

    I just wish you people and other people would stop judging talent and good music by how much each artist is making. Before our time songs sold because they were beautiful and wonderful songs. Now a days for whatever reason people only want songs to dance to and jokes and punchlines in each song, the beautiful and wonderful songs of today are masked by the oversale of half assed music. They aren'y given a chance as much as others because of how much more complex they are and the amount of hard work that goes into them. Open your eyes people, yea Tha Carter IV went double platinum, sure I think Lil Wayne is a good artist, but also a bad and lazy artists because he gives in to doing a lot of half assed songs that people are willing to listen to because their friends do. So i challenge you people to start doing this. Go out and search around in the underground for a while. Find some people you've never heard of and listen to their shit, I Mean growing up I used to be one of those people that thought Tech N9ne was a scary dude. but then all of a sudden I come across some songs from his album K.O.D and immediately began to fall in love with his music. But thats just my example. Money doesn't mean shit in the industry man, recognized hard work and talent. Not who has the nicest clothes.

    Sales do not equal talent and Baby purchases a majority of those so called albums to create the illusion that he has done a good job. The reason why Thriller sold so much because MJ actually had talent. Seems like the industry as well as the fans are backwards as fuck nowadays...

    we all know C4 lacks the substance of a great albulm and based off of music alone,1miillion plus ppl shud never buy this albulm but nonetheless, Wayne deserves it..He works (or atleast used to) harder than most rappers and gave his fans mixtapes upon mixtapes and albulms when artists barely can drop one albulm every two years. YMCMB is the hottest label in the game right now and much success goes to Wayne

      Yo summed it up nice. Personally I played the album once. I thought it was OK. A little poppy. But clearly Lil Wayne's swag and work rate is undeniable. He puts in work for his fans and his artist. The label is definitely running the game at this point.

      Real hip hop is hip hop that is either lyrical, substantial, creative (IN A GOOD WAY), or any of those combined. And its not that people don't support the underground artists and thats why they aren't selling, its because they are UNDERGROUND artists. Not many people know of them. I buy some underground albums..

      @Realhiphop Listen I'm no Wayne fan either, but first off CDs sell at like $17 (IDK where you are buying yours from) and secondly Wayne has a huge fanbase. I think Birdman might've bought 200k of them but over half of what it sold? Wayne had 2 hits along with all the fans from all his other releases. Does he deserve his sales? No. Did Birdman buy 500k? Probably not...

      I'm not a huge Wayne fan nor do I believe that he sold that many records, I truly believe that YMCMB and Birdman bought at least 500,000 copies the first week, and I know people are going to say why would they do that and that would be hustling backwards because Birdman said it, but birdman also said that they make $10 per album,when a cd comes out the first week it sales for $10 so actually they would lose no money in the process and they would gain recognition for sales, so it"s a win win....YADIG I feel you tho if Wayne changed your life when you were on the edge then you very well should feel the way you do about him, niggas act like they don't remember when they were on the edge and their favorite rapper made a song that possibly saved their lives...you gotta respect that

    Let's look at the facts people: Wayne has a huge tattoo on his bicep of a bird, reading "Baby" over it. Wayne thinks that no one else should kiss baby but him. Wayne was adopted by Baby when he was over the age of ten, but refers to him as Daddy and kisses him on the lips... Wayne has some bizarre behavior and is inseparable from bird man... Baby molested that boy... and to be honest, I feel sorry for Wayne. He needs to get away from that man.

      You put together the Blues clues. Don't care for Wayne as an artist nor person. He just brings out music for "Listeners" not "Hearers." and thats fine Lupe J.Cole, Phonte,Kendrick Lamar, Common and NAS got the "HEARERS" of music.

    There's some immature ass people that come on this site and hide behind some computer and just talk mad shit. Yeah this is a site where you come and give your opinion and I respect what people have to say but yall take it to far. I'm not a die--hard slit my wrist stan of wayne but I will say he is one of my favorite artists. Him and birdman are not dumb as fuck in my opinion if they're makin more money than each person that commented on this site today's income doubled/tripled if not more. This is hip-hop, just a more commercial driven type of persona. Wayne is making music to make sells so he has to market the people that will BUY the album. High schoolers and middler schoolers love this shit because they can piece it together quicker, when they get older they'll open their mind up to more hip-hop. Kanye and Jay doin they shit to, makin some real relevent topic/conversational/political shit that mature ass people can understand and wanna listen too.

    New York rapper 50 Cent continues to make the history books, as his first studio album Get Rich Or Die Tryinhas hit the 8 times platinum mark this week, 8 years after its debut on store shelves in February of 2003. The G-Unit generals most recent feat makes GRODT the fourth best-selling rap album off all time, only behind his mentor Eminems The Marshall Mathers LP which has moved 10,341,000 copies, and The Eminem Show, that has sold 9,928,000 CDs. 50 also comes in slightly behind St Louis rapper Nellys Country Grammar which currently stands 8,489,000 copies sold since its release in 2000. In 2003, Get Rich Or Die Tryin debuted at number one on charts selling 872,000 units in its first week on store shelves, and was certified 6 times platinum by the RIAA by the end of the release year. ALL OF YOU HAVE THIS ALBUM YOUR FAV RAPPER WHO HATES 50 HAS THIS ALBUM....BAWSE

    Congrats wayne. 1,700,000 people bought this shit. Half females the other half are morons. I don' hate Wayne its not his fault his fans are a bunch of dumb uncle ruckus looking muthafuckas. Their don't give a shit about the music just the bankroll. They don't about quality. They only listen to rich niggas and whoever bitches listen to. And its not just these youngsters. Some of these niggas 25 and over are going through a mid life pussy crisis. Or as I call em no game having ass niggas. Hip hop is dead. When niggas tell u lyrics don't matter, quality don't matter, money and hoes matter. It's dead. Wayne opened the door for wackness. That's why niggas hate him. If it wasn't for him niggas like Drake, Ross and Lil b wouldn't have been comfortable jumping in the game knowing they suck. Lil Wayne co-signs all these fags does songs with them and these idiots love em. So I don't hate Wayne just his fans for supporting garbage. Same goes for fans of mmg, Taylor gang, brick sqaud, white girl Mobb and so on

    • Broward County

      Lyrics don't matter. Lyrics have never fucking mattered. The only thing that really matters is that you move the crowd. Run DMC basically pioneered the hip-hop game as we know it today, and their lyrics were elementary. What got them over was the way they rocked the mic. Since '08, Wayne has really dropped off. But there are times still- like with 6 ft 7 ft- that you realize dude really is a dope MC, He gets the people moving. All that shit about wordplay... that's for rap nerd fags who sit there deconstructing songs bar by bar. People don't listen to music for that. They listen to be entrertained.

  • The MG

    This is what I don't understand. Why are they giving it the double platinum certification if the sales have not yet crossed the 2 million mark? So practically any artist can have a million copies of their album shipped to stores in the first week and the RIAA can still certify it platinum even though it may have sold only 150k the first week. Just give it the certification when the sales actually cross that amount, otherwise it's not a true double platinum album.

      damn 50 only sold 430k? that's a damn shame lol.

    • Brandon Hamm

      That's just how platinum certifications work. They track how many albums are shipped, not how many albums are purchased. For example, that's how 50 went Gold with his last CD even though in reality he only sold about 430K.
