wayne sold 10k more than 50 in a genre that he has no experience... 50 has been rapping for over a decade.. probably more than that

its like if tiger woods went to the nfl and put up slightly better stats than a decent qb... thats not supposed to happen
Ok, the album Rebirth is not a Rock album. I'm not sure what it is actually. If Wayne came up to me and handed me a sock and said it was cheese I'm not gonna eat it. He is rapping over guitar heavy beats. I see some songs that can go for rock though...... I think

The analogy you presented doesn't make sense. That would mean Lil Wayne stepped into the Rock genre and out performed a decent Rock band.... which he didn't

She's On Fire is not even Rock. That and Drop The World are the only songs I know.

exactly, and shinoda, and rage against the machine been doin' it for years...

this n*gga ain't do nothin new, and the one song that sounded like anything remotely resembling rock to me was that "price is wrong" sh*t which was ear cancer.

and i GUARANTEE the songs on the album that are rap will be the ONLY ones that get ANY type of air play whatsoever

Still waiting for someone to show a rock song that sounds remotely like the raw sewage spewing from his mouth on that cd.

Tracklist:
01. American Star (Feat Shanell)
02. Prom Queen (Feat Shanell)
03. Ground Zero
04. Da Da Da
05. Paradice
06. Get A Life
07. On Fire
08. Drop The World (Feat Eminem)
09. Runnin’ (Feat Shanell)
10. One Way Trip (Feat Kevin Rudolf)
11. Knockout (Feat Nicki Minaj)
12. The Price Is Wrong
13. Die For You
14. So Over You (Feat. Shannel) ??

He spittin the same way like he would any other song. This isn't no different then "Lollipop" or any song on the Carter 3. Nothing wrong with that though I'm just stating the obvious.

Back to my main point though because I don't care if Lil Wayne tried his hand at jazz. Music is music and I just see Wayne as an artist...

This is weird. People on this board crucified 50 because of his sales. Most of the time rightfully so because every time 50 would go back at an artist he would bring up sales. Based on that a lot of posters were saying "50 lost" and in fact did lose that battle. Good sales regardless though on BISD.

So when Lil Wayne sells about 10K more than 50 did Lil Wayne won? I don't get it. So wouldn't both 50 and Wayne lose using that logic? They didn't sell compared to what they usually do but I think both won due to them selling over 150K first week.

The hypocrisy is at an all time high. That is what really sold

I like how you all keep skipping around this question...
Well if you cant show a rock song that sounds remotely like him on that album how the f**k is his album rock?Like i said earlier its a clusterf**k,its just all over the place both vocally and beats wise.It would pass off as slipknot or someone before it would pass off as any self respecting rock artist.

lil wayne has mayday... thats a pretty good band backing him... im sure he could join if he wanted to


and you clearly didnt LISTEN to rebirth

wayne is rhyming.. but not rapping.. he rapped probably on a couple verses... but imo, it sounds more like a singing/talking voice....like a lead vocalist in a rock band...
Post Dedication 2 this is how he always sounds. Their is no difference to how he rhymes on this album.

I listened to this album. It was garbage. On Fire, Drop The World, and Runnin' were the only tracks that I enjoyed. I have those on repeat. I can't stand him moaning using autotune on some tracks. That is a self insured headache. On others it was... was.... Idk . It actually hurt.

I didn't enter the thread to write a review on this album though. I'm trying to get my original post answered. The answer you gave me involved an invalid analogy

galaxy is such a clown i tell ya, now he's sayin it's great sales and s**t cuz of the circumstances to not make it look like a flop lol. 1 mill to 170k in less than 2 years is a flop. it sold like 10k more than BISD too lol and BISD is a flop. that's what's separating a flop and a hit? 10k?
