Ya'll are crazy stupid if you think dude buzz is that big. And the only reason he's considering doing this is because labels ain't throwing him the kind of money he wants.
wtf????? go here please.... and here

then come back and tell me that s**t..... lol f**k outta here... i have accepted the fact that no matter how good an artist is these days cats will always find something wrong with them or find any little reason to s**t on or down play out of spite or hate.... another fine example of why hip hop is in the sorry a.ss state that it's in.....

he'd definitely sell less, but his buzz is huge...people got on teh billboard charts selling a bootleg compilation of his mixtape songs as an album without his permission or promotion

Buzz is huge, and if he sold 400k on his own he'd make 5 times more than going platinum on a label

I know one thing. Astor Roth, Wale, Kid Cudi and every other garbage person on that XXL magazine is hurting now. They not getting any shows. Wale is nice. Every other dude on that magazine is well on they way to suicide. They was all suppose to be popping now and they not even getting radio play. Astor flopped, Wale hasnt dropped. Cudi buzz is dead and everybody else is not doing s**t. Drake has become the recession to up and comer rappers for 2009-2010. He either will sign to a label or release it independent. He said he has turned down deals worth 2 million dollars so its def not about the money. He just doesnt want this album to be about politics. Being on tv has really helped him too because you never know what he will do next. Its like he acting behind all of this. I know one thing though. He will do over 500,000 his first week. If he has 3 million downloads of So Far Gone, he will do over 500,000 his first week. Half of those people will buy his album. People stayed up all night waiting on that mixtape, u mean to tell me they wouldnt pay 10 dollars to get it when it come out. yall crazy, he's pretty much won, just has to complete the album

lol albums only sell for lik 9.99 now, and if every1 got 7-8 a CD every1 would go indie!!!!!!!!!1

i would like to think he will succede this way bcuz hes dope imo but the chips r stacked against him. economy, and that no1 buys cd's anyway will really hurt him.


People dont do s**t for free, wayne does all those features because he gets paid for every 1, wayne probly gets a ton of loot 4 16 bars.

name an indie label big enough yet small enough for this to happen, priority? koch?
hell yeah. and just think, n*ggas used to spend their weed money (20 $) on a f**king cd back in the day.

i was at best buy yesterday, and the whole new releases rack was like 9.99 and lower.

you must be under a rock...

this is not far-fetched at all... independent situations are always better than major deal situations imo anyway...

and for all those who say he won't do big numbers on his own are in denial...

yea, CD's are 9.99 each nowadays and ppl pirate albums all the time, but you gotta factor in Itunes sales, the Jay/Wayne co-signs, his former Degrassi fans, his south buzz right now, he's even been said to be carrying T.Dot on his back...

not to mention he's been featured on Perez Hilton, whose like the internet Oprah, and that dude gets over 2 million hits a day on his site, ppl take his site as gospel, prime example is Lady Gaga, whose everywhere now... so now that's at least 200k more ppl interested in finding out who Drake is...

don't sleep, he'll definitely do good numbers venturing out on his own, and now's a good a time as any...

You're right. Gucci Maine's buzz is bigger than Drake's buzz. No-one is listening to Drake in the hood (especially the guys), only teenage girls who spend their time on myspace all day.

drake aka lil wayne ghost writer is big in atlanta at least.

His songs on all the major hip hop/rnb label.
Yeah I kno for a fact from Virginia down to Florida over to Texas he gets some major play on the radio both songs, no album and no label which is crazy. I don't even listen to the radio, but I've got friends all over the country and international talkin bout his songs. For some reason ppl think the only way u get on the radio is payola or a record label. If enough ppl request your song, they're gonna play it, period.

What? 1st of all Drake's buzz is bigger than Gucci's. And those teenage girls who spend their time on myspace all day are the ones who buy records, I don't know anyone in the hood, that outright buys records. In the place where I used to live record stores are closing down b/c ppl are bootlegging so much.

First off ... I rarely purchase CD's.

The last one I copped was the MF DOOM - Born Like this, but before that the last album I actually went to the store and spent my hard earned money on was Graduation.

With that said ... Label or no label ... I'll be in the store to cop Thank Me Later.

p.s. I live in Ohio and he's on the radio minimum twice an hour here.

Drake is dope...... but come on now Buddens didn't even do it big with all his recent hype. It would sell as much as a mixtape, plus most people would download it.
So he betta get a deal.
