look man i dont like lil wayne either..i mean he got a few hot songs on the new album but the hate he gets on this forum is rediculous. can the man be successful without n*ggas saying the album was trash? half of you guys probably didnt give it a listen.

how come g-unit doesnt get the same hate because IMO they are both garbage a.ss rappers that got alot of success.

"The Carter III" has sold 423,000 copies in its first day WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's right people Wayne's new CD is a lock to be the number one album next week, and quite possibly the best selling album of the year. It's actually very interesting because industry experts touted Mariah Carey and Madonna to take that record home this year, but clearly Wayne had a much better buzz.

There's no hate in my keystrokes when I say CONGRAGU "fu*k*IN" LATIONS Wayne. I guess sometimes nucca's do be knowing what the f*ck they're doing.

MC Hammer went Diamond and he's irrelevant today. Wayne fans act like album sales solidify his status as the "Greatest Rapper Alive". A lot of the greatest hip hop albums ever took years to go platinum. Call me a "hater" because I think his CD is a 7/10 at most but I'm not going to lose any sleep over it because albums don't sell off quality, never did, but more off the right marketing and popular singles. I do, however, praise him for selling that much because rappers are definitely hitting hard times in album sales.

no, from the post i have read from you it seems that since you listen to "backpack rap" your opinion is higher then others. if you dont like the hiphop now days just post in the underground section.

like i said before i dont like lil wayne at all. but all you do is hate saying hiphop is dead.

just do it :hang:

Wayne is an icon. hate it or love it, he's the biggest thing out. The only thing that separates him from 50 and Jay Z is that corporate money (as far as status goes). I'm a huge fan and I can say that this is definately not his best album by far, but it was probably the most anticipated album since "Graduation" or "Massacre" (not "Curtis"). People that "hate" him have listened to the album, so he's definately on top. Only the best get that much attention. Congrats Wayne.

People that listen to the album is going to buy this album. I dont like that Lollipop song (except for the version with Kanye), but everywhere I go people are singing it. All you need is a single that will catapult the album and the sky is the limit. Wayne just knows the formula, and I cant knock his hustle.

It's all about Lil Wayne this week as The Billboard 200 prepares for the arrival of "Tha Carter III." The rapper's new Cash Money/Universal album will easily bow at No. 1 next week, as it leads Nielsen SoundScan's Building Chart, to be released this afternoon (June 11) at 5 p.m. ET.

Unweighted first-day sales of "Tha Carter III" at nine leading accounts through the close of business yesterday (June 10), stood at 423,000. Sources close to the album project "Carter" could shift between 850,000-950,000 in its first full week.

That would easily give Wayne the biggest sales week of the year, surpassing the 463,000 start that greeted Mariah Carey's "E=MC2," and the best since Kanye West's "Graduation" started with 957,000 last year.

To compare, "Graduation" saw a first-day Building number of 428,000 from eight accounts, about 3% more than that posted by "Carter."

Billboard estimates the nine merchants who report to Nielsen SoundScan's Building chart -- Trans World Entertainment, Best Buy, Circuit City, iTunes, Starbucks, Borders, Target, Anderson Merchandisers and Handleman Co. -- comprise about 80% of all U.S. album sales.

Starbucks was not part of the Building Chart panel when West's title came to market last Sept. 11.

Other albums likely to make top 10 debuts next week, based on first-day numbers reflected on Nielsen SoundScan's Building chart: Plies' "Definition of Real" (Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic), N.E.R.D.'s "Seeing Sounds" (Star Trak/Interscope), Alanis Morissette's "Flavors of Entanglement" (Maverick/Warner Bros.) and My Morning Jacket's "Evil Urges" (ATO).

SUMMARY:

CARTER 2 TOOK 8 MONTHS PLATINUM, CARTER 3 WILL DO THAT IN A WEEK, 2 TOPS.

HE WILL SURPASS WHAT MARIAH AND USHER DID FOR THEIR FIRST WEEK, IN 1 DAY!

HATE HIM OR LOVE HIM, ITS GOOD TO SEE A HIP-HOP ARTIST STILL ABLE TO SELL THIS MUCH.
