    I dont think thats something to be proud of. Lol I streamed it because it wasnt worth my purchase and wasnt worth my time to having to download it and add it to my itunes library only good songs were Man of The Year & Break Tha Bank

      " it came up far too short to everyone's expectations and his sales reflect that." How can you speak for everyone? I thought it was a good album and Collard Greens is one of my fav songs on there. 140k first week is amazing for a major label debut album in 2014. Rick Ross is only projected to sell 150-160k with WAY MORE promo and features from Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Jeezy, Diddy, The Weeknd etc... Seem's like you're just hatin.

      Yeah, well, that's just like., your opinion, man.

      Collard Greens was GARBAGE, Blind Threats was not that great, even if he had Raekwon on it & The Purge was better than half the album, he had Studio with Bj Chicago Kid which was decent.... but overall the album aint impressive. same flow on almost every song and when he does go with a different delivery he tries to emulate Kendrick Lamar and he comes off as boring half way through the Album... Break tha Bank and Man of The Year were the only songs that have replay value, not because they have the best lyrics, but because the production was superb on both those songs. So you can take that 2 cents or not,but the fact is this album was over hyped. I was expecting something great, but it came up far too short to everyone's expectations and his sales reflect that.

      You saying that you think those 2 songs are the "good" ones says too much about your taste and exactly why no one gonna take your opinion on this matter seriously.
