Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 7/8/2012

Chris Brown takes the #1 overall spot as Flo Rida's "Wild Ones" and Prodigy's "H.N.I.C. 3" also make debuts. B.o.B. and Big K.R.I.T. gain some strong ground on the charts too.

Three new albums shook up the charts, including a new #1. Chris Brown's fifth album Fortune arrived at the top of the charts, his second straight work to do so in as many years. The RCA Records release includes emcees Nas, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa. At #14, Flo Rida's fourth solo album Wild Ones debuted on the charts after two years of chart-topping singles from the Atlantic Records release. Prodigy's fifth album outside of his Mobb Deep work also debuted, just outside the Top 100. This is the Queens, New York emcee's first solo release in almost four years. Older 2012 releases from B.o.B. and Big K.R.I.T. gained some strong ground in rankings and sales this week.

#1 Is Chris Brown's Fortune

Selling approximately 135,000 units, Chris Brown's Fortune is the #1 album in the country this week. The Virginia Pop/R&B singer's fifth album includes Hip Hop guests, along with production by The Runners, Tha Bizness, Polow Da Don and Drake affiliate Boi-1da. The latest single is "Don't Wake Me Up." This Brown's second #1 in his career, following 2011's F.A.M.E.

Prodigy's H.N.I.C. Trilogy Still In Demand

Mobb Deep's Prodigy released his third volume of the H.N.I.C. (Head Nigga In Charge) series. This one released on the emcee's own Infamous imprint, featured T.I., Wiz Khalifa and Mobb partner Havoc. With 2000's major label-backed debut scoring a Top 20 debut, H.N.I.C. 3 is P's lowest performance of the trio, selling just under 4,000 units at #105. Production on H.N.I.C. 3 was handled by Alchemist, Sid Roams and Ty Fyffe.

    "Still don't make her music better" I agree... She's just more successful because she's a brand. The funny thing is Krit just might end up having a longer career, because female MC''s typically burn out fast.

  • hjk

    HOW IS IT POSSIBLE, that last week B.o.B had sold 172k and in this article is 119k, you better correct it I doubt Nicki made more than 2 mil. this year, if yes, most of them took Birdman for himself anyway

  • Mobb Deep fan

    i dno why everyone saying 3,900 copies for prodigy is bad. It's not when you consider he released it himself on his own label without much promotion. Plus the album is dope which is more important than how much it sells but at least Prodigy will keep all the money he makes and not have to give most of it to a major label. Just wait for the next mobb deep album which will sell well

    • mobb deep fan

      yeh hnic3 wasnt quite as good as the first 2 or return of the mac but that only because of the songs with esther really, other than them the album is dope. Plus Prodigy gets to keep all the money made from sales as it was released on his own record label, plus u forgot the money he gonna make from shows and from the next mobb deep album

    • joey

      3900 wont even cover the gay videos he shot for his gay album. hnic 3 is a total failure. critically and commercially. if your album isn't going to sell big why make it a piece of shit album that wants to sell big? prodigy is in the hole. first everyone was talking about havoc said p is gay and now everyone is talking about prodigy new album sucking and him being finished. nice to come out of prison for that. good music that flops > bad music that flops

    If album sales and money make a great hip hop artist, then why do you clones listen to hip hop. Pop and rock artists sell more albums than a lot of hip hop artists, does that mean pop and rock are better than hip hop? I think not.

    Idk why ppl callin Flo Rida a flop, one of his singles makes more money than almost every artist on this chart

    • Hip Hop Fan

      You know nothing about business. If he sells 31000 first week but already sold 10 million singles I think he already recouped. Anything after is purely profit right? I seriously doubt his 31000k is hurting his pocket if he drives Bugatti's all day long. His pop music carters to more people than Hip Hop. ;)

      Look at how many units his album sold. He's a flop.

    shady 2.0 album (hopefully) 5mill units first week.

  • irishdanger92@aol.com

    eminems new album 500k+ first week.

    • da1

      More like 700k +. Even though Eminem's music isn't what it use to be. He still sells on average more then 700k the first week. It happened with Encore, The 8 mile soundtrack, and Recovery. His only album to not go gold the first week was his first album SSLP. And that sold well over 400k it's first week. So Eminem will always

  • irishdanger92@aol.com

    50 cent sk immortal can do 500k+ first week when it drops if they promo right. It can be done 50 needs motivation.

    • hjk

      tell me, how? last 50's album sold 150k in the first week, no way he will sell 500+ in his first week, even nicki's album could barely crack 500k at all

    • terrortorc

      not gonna happen ,albums don't sale anymore the biggest debut of the year was bieber with 374k with a 2xplatinum single and u know pop sell way more than rap .

      AGAIN THERE'S NOTHING TO DEFEND, ALL YOU'VE STATED ARE LOUSY OPINIONS. YOU CAN SAY THEY ARE UNIVERSAL'S BITCH ALL YOU WANT, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO FACTS OF OWNERSHIP, YOU'RE WRONG. CASH MONEY MAINLY HAS A PRESSING AND DISTRIBUTION DEAL WITH UNIVERSAL, THEY PAY EVERYTHING ELSE OUT OF THEIR OWN PACKET. THAT'S WHY THEY STILL OWN ALL THEIR MASTERS, GET 50% OF PUBLISHING, AND MORE THAN 80% OF ROYALTIES. ITS ACTUALLY THE OTHER WAY AROUND, UNIVERSAL IS PUTTING MONEY IN THEIR POCKETS, DUMBFUCK. THAT'S WHY THE DEAL WAS SO BIG. YOU CAN'T COMPREHEND THAT BECAUSE YOU HATE MONEY AND DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT BUSINESS.

    • @Delray Douglas

      I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOUR OPINION ON MONEY OR HAPPINESS LITTLE GUY. EVERY TIME YOU GET SHUT DOWN, YOU STRAY TO SOME IRRELEVANT MUMBO JUMBO SHIT, THAT'S OFF SUBJECT. BOTTOM LINE: CASH MONEY IS DOING MAJOR SHIT IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS First of all, I didn't get shut down if that's what you're thinking; you're the one getting shut down. Second, I bring those things up because you're dickriding a dude and label because of their money; that's some hoe shit right there. Third and finally, I don't give a fuck about someone's success or their money; what Cash Money's doing is nothing special. They're lucky to last this long because they always follow what's popular at the moment and make money off of it. All of the music that comes out of that label are crappy pop songs with zero replay value. Fuck Cash Money, their associates, and anyone that like them.

    • ^^

      Look who's talking. You're the one defending another man's money. Like i said, that's bitch shit. *I already explained why Universal owns Cash Money; Universal is the bigger label, meaning Cash Money makes money for them and they have to split it up with them, with Universal getting the bigger cut. *I also explained how Birdman is spending as much as he makes. This dude is like a teenage girl with a credit card in a mall; he just spends, spends, spends. But he don't have to worry about going into debt because of his three cash cows.

      LOL, TYPING IN CAPS MEANS I'M EMOTIONAL. FUCK OUTTA HERE. EVERY RESPONSE FROM YOU GETS MORE LAME. CASH MONEY BEING UNIVERSAL'S BITCH IS ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR HOMOSEXUALLY CHARGED OPINIONS SINCE YOU CAN'T PROVE IN FINANCIAL TERMS, THAT THEY OWN CASH MONEY OUTRIGHT. THOSE ITEMS ARE OBVIOUSLY AFFORDABLE FOR DUDE OR HE WOULD HAVE BEEN GONE BANKRUPT YEARS AGO. LIKE I SAID EARLIER, DUDES BEEN STUNTING SINCE THE 90S AND IS STILL FILTHY RICH. I'M LAUGHING THAT YOU KEEP DODGING THE FACT THAT HIS NET WORTH WOULD DECREASE IF HE CONSTANTLY SPENDS MORE THAN HE MAKES! LOL! THIS DUMMY CAN'T ADMIT HE/SHE IS WRONG.

    • @Delray Douglas

      Dude, I'm not the one typing in caps. You're the emotional one here. Everything you said is a pile of BS while everything I said was true. Cash Money is Universal's bitch because they make money for them and rely on big daddy Universal for their cut. Birdman does spend as much as he makes because of his expenses (he buys 20 half-million dollar cars, 5 million dollar mansions, and tons of expensive jewelry, clothes, and other extra shit people don't need) and it doesn't have to affect his net worth. Why do you defend another man's money? That's bitch shit. P.S.: ""Money isn't everything, dumbass; you can't take it with you when you die." BROKE NIGGA ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" It's actually true if you get your head out your ass and think about it. Don't let money rule your life. Like Bob Marley said, money can't buy happiness.

YOU STILL HAVE NOT EXPLAINED HOW BIRDMAN CAN SPEND MORE THAN HE MAKES, IF HE HAS A POSITIVE NET WORTH, ABOVE $100 MILLION. IF HE WHOLLY SPENDS MORE THAN HE BUYS IT WOULD AFFECT HIS NET WORTH LITTLE GUY. AGAIN, GO PICK UP A FUCKIN BOOK. EVERYTHING ELSE YOU TYPED IS THE SAME EMOTIONAL DICK IN THE BOOTY DRIVEL. NOW ASK YOURSELF, WHY DOES BIRDMAN'S SUCCESS MAKE YOU SO MAD. FAG.

    • ^^

      Everything you said was a bunch of bullshit. First of all, Universal DOES own Cash Money; they're making money off of them. Second, Birdman DOES spend as much as he make; just look at what he buys. That tells the whole story and it doesn't have to affect his net worth. Third, everyone on Cash Money that isn't Wayne, Drake, and Nicki aren't making that much money. Finally, you ARE defending them; you make retarded comebacks about their money. Money isn't everything, dumbass; you can't take it with you when you die. Birdman's success is one big joke; he screwed people over and took advantage of others. The "hater" excuse is overused; I'm not a hater, I'm a realist. I see through bullshit. And Cash Money's success is bullshit.

    • Delroy Douglas

      YOU DON'T HAVE ANY INTELLIGENCE TO INSULT YOU LAME. THE ONLY WAY UNIVERSAL OWNS CASH MONEY, IS IF THEY ACTUALLY OWN THE MAJORITY OF THE SHARES. YOU HAVEN'T SHOWN THAT THIS IS THE CASE, THEREFORE YOU ARE WRONG. SECONDLY, YOU HAVEN'T SHOWN THAT BIRDMAN HAS A NEGATIVE NET WORTH, WHICH MEANS HE DOESN'T SPEND MORE THAN HE MAKES. EVEN FORBES PUT HIM AT $125 MILLION. YOU CAN'T AMASS THE FORTUNE IF YOU SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE. THAT'S SIMPLE FINANCE. I KNOW HE IS MAKING MONEY, THAT'S WHAT I BEEN SAYING THIS WHOLE TIME FAGGOT. THOSE THREE ARE THE MOST PRODUCTIVE, BUT THE OTHERS ARE MAKING MONEY TOO, ESPECIALLY FROM TOURING. THERE'S NOTHING TO "DEFEND" BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T SAID ANYTHING FACTUAL, ONLY YOUR HOMOSEXUALLY CHARGED PERSONAL OPINION ABOUT THEIR MUSIC, AND BIRDMAN. I COULD GIVE A FUCK WHETHER YOU LIKE BIRDMAN OR NOT, WHO CARES! BUT BIRDMAN'S BUSINESS SUCCESS CANNOT BE DENIED, EVEN BY A HATER LIKE YOURSELF.

      Insulting my intelligence to make my point; how mature. FYI, Universal does owe Cash Money and Birdman does spend as much money as he makes. The only reason Birdman Is making money now is because of his three cash cows; Lil Wayne, Drake, and Nicki. Those three are hot-at-the-moment pop stars making money for the label. Everyone else on that label are tax write offs. None of that shit makes Cash Money the best record label ever; it just makes them popular and successful. Why are you defending Birdman and Cash Money, the worst things to ever happen to hip-hop since the death of Tupac and Biggie?

    • Delroy Douglas

      OF COURSE ALL YOU SEE IS BULLSHIT, YOU CAN BARELY READ. ONCE AGAIN, UNIVERSAL DOESN'T OWN CASH MONEY, THAT WOULD ENTAIL THEM OWNING THE MAJORITY OF THE SHARES IN THE COMPANY. YOU DON'T KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT BUSINESS TO "SPEAK THE TRUTH". CLEARLY HIS NET WORTH WOULD BE NEGATIVE IF HE SPENDS MORE THAN HE MAKES, DUMMY. I SAID THAT TOO MANY TIMES NOW. THE NUMBERS HERE CLEARLY DON'T LIE, DUDES ARE SELLING ALBUMS AND CONTINUING TO GROSS MILLIONS.

    • ^^^

      Blah, blah, blah. All I see is a.bunch of bullshit. Regardless of the deals, Universal owns Cash Money. And he does spend as much as he makes; what I'm speaking is the truth. Dude screwed people over for the money he makes and doesn't deserve it. Dude is a criminal like the other crooked businessmen. The money he makes doesn't make him a better person; it makes him another nigga with money. When he and his brother dies, Cash Money will disappear if it hasn't already in the future. P.S.: numbers DO lie. Don't believe the hype.

      YOU KEEP WHINING LIKE A BITCH. AGAIN:UNIVERSAL DOESN'T OWN CASH MONEY, POINT BLANK. EVERYTHING I SAID IS TRUE LITTLE GUY. IF BIRDMAN SPENDS MORE THAN HE MAKES, THEN HE WOULDN'T HAVE A POSITIVE NET WORTH, FUCKIN RETARD. CAN YOU COMPREHEND THAT? TAKE YOUR SLOW ASS UP TO THE LIBRARY AND READ SOME PERSONAL FINANCE & ACCOUNTING BOOKS. LIKE I SAID, YOU'RE ENTITLED TO YOUR OWN OPINION OF DUDES CHARACTER, BUT EVERYTHING I STATED IS BASED ON CONCRETE BUSINESS SUCCESS & NUMBERS.

      And the stupidity continues. None of what you said are true, except for the fact that they're successful in music. They're still Universal's bitches. They do spend as much as they make. All of their businesses outside of music has turned to shit and failed. And Birdman IS everything erring with American black men; he's illiterate, he's crooked, he screwed people over for money, he's a child molester, and he enforces negative stereotypes like other niggas. Fuck Birdman and fuck you, dickrider.

    • Delray Douglas

      UNIVERSAL DOESN'T OWN CASH MONEY RETARD. THEY DON'T OWN THE MAJORITY (OR ANY) SHARES (OR UNIVERSAL IS NOT A MEMBER SINCE THEY ARE AN LLC) IN CASH MONEY RECORDS. HOW CAN HE SPEND MORE THAN HE MAKES WHEN HE HAS A POSITIVE NET WORTH. AND YES NIGGA YOU ARE DUMB AND A HATER. THAT'S GETTING OFF SUBJECT, BUT EVEN THEIR PUBLISHING DIVISION IS DOING WELL, ONE OF THEIR AUTHORS MADE THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER, AND I'M SURE THEIR VODKA WILL DO WELL. BUT EITHER WAY, I'M TALKING ABOUT THEIR MUSIC BUSINESS. THE BROKE AND UNEMPLOYED ARE NOT BIRDMAN'S PROBLEM, SO WHY ARE YOU BRINGING THAT UP? I NEVER SAID YOU HAVE TO STAND BY ANYTHING, EVEN DUMB NIGGAS LIKE YOU ARE ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION, BUT NUMBERS DON'T LIE. I DON'T SEE HOW GETTING RICH AND LIVING YOUR LIFE PAINTS A BAD PICTURE FOR BLACK MEN IN AMERICA, BUT YOU WOULD SAY SOME DUMB SHIT LIKE THAT.

    • @Delray Douglas

      I'm dumb? Look who's talking. Again, like I said, Universal does own Cash Money. Birdman does spend more than he makes just by his behavior and the way he talks about nothing but money. And you don't know what's gonna happen to the money. There's a lot of people out there who could take that money away and leave them with nothing. None of Cash Money's businesses outside of music are successful or profitable. And who gives a fuck about the broke, unemployed? Not you, but everybody else does. People have little money to just survive and jobs are scarce. All Birdman is is just another crooked businessman. You could give props to crooked businessmen who screw people over all you want, but I'm not standing by that. Birdman represents everything wrong with black men and America.

MANY OTHER HECTO-MILLIONAIRES SPEND TO THE SAME DEGREE, BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW THAT EITHER. THERE IS NO NEED TO INVEST IN THE STOCK MARKET IF HE ALREADY OWNS PROFITABLE COMPANIES. AND STOP CRYING ABOUT THE RECESSION FAGGOT. WHO GIVES A FUCK ABOUT THE BROKE, UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BIRDMAN. HE'S DOING HIS THING. I WILL CONTINUE TO GIVE PROPS TO PEOPLE THAT ARE SUCCESSFUL IN THE BUSINESS WORLD. YOU MAD? LOSER.

    • @Delray Douglas

      Dude, give up. Cash Money is not independent. Universal still owns their asses. They're successful, but they're not THAT successful. And like someone says, they spend as much as they make instead of investing in some stocks. They're just part of the greedy 1% that owns all of the money in the country. The country is in a recession where a lot of people are broke and unemployed and these niggas are screwing people over for their money and laughing at their faces. Unless you're seeing some of that money and/or benefiting from them, don't speak about another man's success/money ever again.

      You do realize Delray that the figures you hear in forbes hip hop kings is just an estimated guess. Also thats what those artist gross. They probably pay more then 15% on taxes, not including what other bills and responsibilities they have. And Baby does spend alot of money. Not just on cars but on ignorant stupid stuff. Havent you heard about him loosing a $5 MILLION DOLLAR bet on the Patriots in the super bowl. Or how about his 2.1 million dollar necklace. I'm pretty sure he splurges on alot more then just cars. Yes he makes alot but I'm pretty sure he spends just as much.

      Now you're making shit up. Cash Money is still owned by Universal, so they're not independent. Death Row was independent, No Limit was independent, Roc-A-Fella was independent, Top Dawg are independent. Cash Money is NOT independent.

    • Delray Douglas

      NOT A TRADITIONAL INDIE COMPANY SELLING CDS AT THE CORNER STORE, BUT CASH MONEY IS STILL LOOSELY CONSIDERED A INDIE LABEL BASED ON THE DEALS THEY'VE MADE. OUTSIDE OF DISTRIBUTION BY UNIVERSAL REPUB AND OTHER SERVICES FROM UNIVERSAL, THEY STILL RETAIN THE FULL OWNERSHIP OF MASTERS, MOST OF THE PUBLISHING, AND 1/2 OF THE PUBLISHING, WHICH TO ME DETAILS THE INDEPENDENCE, AS FAR AS OWNERSHIP.

    • ^

      Yeah. They're successful by screwing people over. It still doesn't change the fact that their music is crap. They don't deserve the money they make. Cash Money are a bunch of fucking snakes who'll do anything to make a quick buck. The whole country is in a recession and the last thing we need is some corny wack niggas bragging about their money.

      Nigga, nobody gives a fuck about how much money they're making. Their music still sucks and they won't last long. Remember, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. There will be another label taking CM's spot in the future. Stop acting like Cash Money will be around in 100 years.

    • Delray Douglas

      @ ^^: DID YOU JUST NOW REALIZE THAT I'M STRICTLY TALKING ABOUT MONEY, ANOTHER DUMBASS. BOTTOM LINE IS THEY CONTINUE TO BE SUCCESSFUL WHILE YOU HOPE THAT THEY FAIL. LIKE I SAID IN THE BEGINNING, THESE NIGGAS ARE MAKING BIG BIG MONEY, AND ARE ONLY GETTING BETTER AT IT.

    • Anonymous

      Just like someone else said, Cash Money is owned by Universal, meaning they're not independent. They make that money, but all of it doesn't go to their wallets/bank accounts. They have to split it up with Universal, the artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, music video directors, managers, promoters, etc. And that's a lot of money getting split up. Most of that money will be spent on stupid materialistic possessions that aren't worth anything. So if you think Cash Money sees all the money they make, then you're crazy.

    • ^^

      Blah, blah, blah, Birdman makes money, blah, blah, blah, Cash Money. That's all you're talking about. And how they managed to last? Luck. They were lucky. Cash Money never were big until the late 90s and then in the early 2000s, their popularity fell when Juvenile and Mannie Fresh left the label. They relied on Wayne to get them up. It wasn't until 2008 when Wayne turned pop and became a sellout with Tha Carter 3 when Cash Money became big. Then, Cash Money formed Young Money to beome YMCMB and signed Drake, Nicki, and 100 other tax write-offs to become bigger. Cash Money will fall; its inevitable. The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Also, their music sucks and nobody buys any of their merchandise outside of music.

    • Delray Douglas

      @ANONYMOUS. NEVER SAID I WAS A FAN OF THE MUSIC, STUPID. I ALREADY SAID IN THE BEGINNING I'M TALKING ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY ARE MAKING. A LOT OF GREAT ARTISTS DON'T UNDERSTAND BUSINESS, WHICH IS WHY THEY END UP DYING BROKE, AND GET RAPED BY THE MAJORS.

      WE ALL KNOW DIDDY AND JAY GETTING MONEY, THAT DOESN'T TAKE AWAY FROM WHAT BIRDMAN IS DOING. NEITHER JAY NOR DIDDY PUT TOGETHER A DEAL LIKE BIRDMAN/SLIM DID. CAN YOU TELL ME WHY CASH MONEY IS STILL PUSHING FORWARD WHILE THOSE OTHER LABELS HAVE WENT EXTINCT? ITS NOT BY CHANCE. BUYING A BUGATTI, AND A FEW OTHER CARS IS NOT EXPENSIVE WHEN YOU'RE PULLING DOWN DECA-MILLIONS EVERY SINGLE YEAR. NOT TO MENTION THAT A LOT OF OTHER EXPENSES ARE WRITTEN OFF THROUGH VARIOUS SUBSIDIARY COMPANIES. DUDE BEEN STUNTING HEAVY SINCE THE 90S AND STILL AINT CAME UP BROKE.

      Delray is obviously another pop music sheep who follows whoever's popular and ride their jocks. A lot of great artists never had a lot of commercial success; that's a fact. If I'm a rapper, I'd rather be a legend with longevity and quality music than some hot-at-the-moment pop sensation with commercial success.

      WAYNE BY HIMSELF SOLD MORE MONEY AND MADE MORE MONEY FROM HIS TOUR THAN JAY-Z AND KANYE. OUTSIDE OF MUSIC ITS A DIFFERENT STORY.

ITS COOL AS A LOSER YOU WANT THEM TO GO BROKE, BUT THE REALITY IS, THEY HAVEN'T YET, AND ARE CONTINUING TO MAKE MORE MONEY.

Nicki prolli sees a penny or less for every album where niggas thats more independent prolli see a few dollars.

    Prodigy got what he deserved.

That's what happenss when you shit on the only fans you have left and flip the script. The fans you shot for don't even know you exist and the fans you had think you look like a clown. Prodigy obviously didn't get any wiser in the box. Guy is clueless. I'm sure he'll find more to gossip about and try and cash in on another book like the male Superhead. HNIC 3 full of bad love songs, Prodigy got a little weight in the can and thought thought he could get the LL/Drake ladies crowd. Nice try midget.

    this just goes to prove that no one value's flo rida artistically. dude makes the same song over and over and people only buy it because his music good for clubs and dancing. no one listens to flo rida from an artistic, sentimental, or musical perspective. dude found a formula and refuses to deviate or even challenge himself artistically. id rather be a album rapper than a singles rapper.

    • Anonymous

      funny thing is, that he raps better than most real rappers out there.

    • Anonymous

      i never once said anything about flo rida's lyrical ability. my point was every song he makes sounds exactly the same. exploring yourself artistically does not mean changing genres or becoming lyrical. but anyone with a brain can tell when a musician has gotten too comfortable and is no longer focusing on artistic progression. and flo rida is one of them dudes. and miss me with all that "he eating good i cant hate" shit my nigga. nobody hating on the nigga feeding his family. this is about him as an artist not him as a father. so miss me with that he eating shit. a sharpshooter's family eating as well.

      I cant knock the man he eating good. His music maybe wack but he found his lane and he is doing very well. I mean I would rather a artist be himself why change the format he didnt come in the game lyrical so why should he go that route. Growing up I didnt want to hear too short or snoop trying to be lyrical. I wanted to hear some pimp shit and gangsta shit. Moral to this story is stay in your lane and you will be ok. Why make a lyrical album when that is not making you money. People like yourself dont buy albums. Eh I dont give a fuck either way Go Florida!!! Get that money!!!

    Wow Nicki still ain't gone platinum! It must be Roman's fault. Somebody put B.o.B on suicide watch... he can only muster up 120K albums, even with a Taylor Swift single! So sad, so sad...Time for everbody to hop out of the Maybach and help push it up the hill, the tank is on "E!" All they play is this fat f#$k's music on the radio and he still don't sell! Start over man, go on Extreme makeover weight loss edition and just start from scratch.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! Flo Rida flopped harder than Nicki. Both of them are fucking sellouts. They got multi-platinum singles, but can't sell albums (even though Nicki went gold, but that's as far as she's gonna go.).

    • ^^

      Thank you. Good to see somebody gets it.

    • BradZuk

      do you know what the word "expectations" means? or is that too long. People feel successful when they exceed expectations. I dont know what curren$y expected to sell, but I'm guaranteeing you it was a hell of a lot lower than what nicki expected. Things arent deemed successes or flops based on simple comparisons. they are measured against their own expectations. Now stfu and stop making hiphopdx seem like a dumber place than it already is

    • ^^

      You are seriously a dumbass. Curren$y doesn't have any radio singles and isn't all over TV like pop star Nicki, so doing 50k with little to zero promotion is actually good for a rapper like Curren$y. Also, Nicki is a pop artist and she said that Roman Reloaded was gonna sell 5 million when it hasn't even went platinum yet. P.S.: that last comment was stupid as fuck. Nobody knows who Lil B is outside of the internet and Chris Brown has always done these numbers with his promotion. Your logic is stupid.

    • DK

      SO HOW CAN CURRENSY FLOPS? WHEN HE SELLS 2K? HIPHOP IS A PRETTY TOUGH COMPETITION IF THATS SO. I MEAN 54 000 IS NO SUCCESS IN ALL ANGLES, SO LIL B IS A SUCCESFUL RAPPER GIVEN HIS PROMOTION AND CHRIS BROWN A FLOP.WELL GOOD LOGIC

    • ^^

      Yep. Nicki flopped because she didn't do big numbers like she's supposed to, while Curren$y did numbers he's supposed to do. Reason why? Hype and promotion. One artist got more hype/promo than the other and didn't do the numbers it's supposed to do.

  • Yup !

    THE ONLY PPL THAT SELLS RECORDS IS LIL WAYNE & EMINEM!!!!!! THATS IT!!!!!!

    • c

      Wayne's crap label buy his shitty records... It hasnt been on this list in a while either after the first few weeks, which is suspect!!! Drake has not fallen off this list since last year! Jay-Z still sells as well everytime he drops.

      Nothing happened cuz it didn't flop. They did exactly the number they were supposed to. They'll outsell the first compilation and have a slew of gold singles off the album. Nothing but sauce for the goose.
