i see what your saying but that argument goes both ways alot of white guys don't like eminem becuz they don't think he can rap yet they prefer gucci mane, wayne, or drake over him....all about what you like and at the end of the day if someone likes a artists their gonna support him

I only read the first page cuz im not gonna go through 10000000000000000 pages of idiots saying "its cuz he's white" and yaddayadda....Eminem made a solid f**king album and people bought that s**t...drakes album was alright in my opinion...but considering his "buzz" he should be doing Shady numbers....but he isnt...and he wont ever...Drake is going to start losing relevance now since his album didnt do huge numbers..i put cash
:agreement6:

Well said.


And as much buzz Drake has got over the past year or so, I figured he would have sold more. Either way he didn't "lose". He did average numbers, which is all right cause that's what the album was ... average. Seems fair to me.

Eminem is usually considered one of the greatest because he is, in actual fact, one of the greatest.

So, is this the reason why all of my white hipster art school friends have tons of Dr. Dre, Lil Wayne, Little Brother, Tech 9, Immortal Technique, Sean Price, Boot Camp Clik, Lupe Fiasco, The Roots, Kanye West, and other prominent hip hop acts on their iPods?

This delusional "only black people listen to hip hop" mentality is retarded.

Look at the image paul wall has.....dumb a.ss

He acts n dress n thinks black....so dont compare

And theres no racism....Im just saying when u got the white crowd its hard to fail period

I don't understand why you can't compare the 2? Didn't Eminem act, dress, and think black when he first came into the game and years after? The only difference between the 2 is Eminem actually has talent and Paul Wall is a.ss and still acts like a w.igger. Same can be said about Bubba Sparxx, Haystak, and any other white rapper out there in the world. I bet you Haystak has more of a white fanbase than Eminem so why is he failing then? Majority of his fanbase is white trash. The same "fans" that love ICP. They are white, too.

Bottom line is, Eminem has a big fan base of black people, too. You really think almost all of those numbers came from white people? I'm black and I bought the album. I've been a fan of Em since day 1 and he's one of my favorites.

So that whole "it's hard to fail when you got a white fanbase" is bulls**t. Got any other valid excuses?

Sounds like to me there's a bunch of salty n*ggas on here.

One minute, it's "such and such sold because white people buy their music", next it's "Only white people are buying albums!" Then it's "Eminem only sold because he's white". Give the dude some f**king crazy and stop these pre-conceived stereotypical notions that primarily white people bought the album.

You're telling me that out of 753k people + another 250k people on iTunes, there's no possible way that anybody of color copped the album? This reverse racism s**t is stupid....

Being white and being as dope as the dude is as a rapper, being one of the first of his kind to not only rap, on a nationwide scale and actually be RESPECTED by all of his peers, and pretty much feared lyrically by the majority (so it seems since 90% of rappers won't say s**t about Em on a record...) but to also be such a proven, time and time again consistent SELLER, it automatically puts the dude on a pedestal.

I'll be the first to say that I hated Encore and thought Relapse was decent, but Recovery definitely deserves this. Not only is it good, and good for him, but it's also good for the music industry. This should be proof and motivation to every "big time" artist out there that's struggling with sales that it IS indeed possible to do big numbers.

who cares about all these cr.ackas buying this album..they dont determine whats hot.the hood does.

and the hood aint chckin 4 this h.onkey.
I'm willing to put money up you live nowhere near the hood. Keep it thuggin' though... yawn

Anyone who even DREAMT that Drake would outsell Eminem is a dummy, so to say "Drake lost" as if someone expected him to do better is pretty stupid.

Universal invested a lot of money into Drake and they're going to make it all back + then some. Gold in 2 weeks, platinum sooner or later... in 2010? Yeah, that's profit. And that's 500,000 in 2 weeks + digital sales. Drake is good money, how y'all think he lost is beyond me.

Then Eminem... 750,000 + 250,000 digital sales = platinum first week (technically)

2 really dope albums (both AOTY contenders) with well deserved recognition, that's a beautiful thing and very rare in hip hop nowadays. If only The Roots' album got the same recognition... and Reflection Eternal... and Nas/Damian Marley... sigh.

BP3 is almost double platinum by the way, get mad

I'm white, I like Eminem but he's not nearly my top artist. I'm actually only person in my group of friends that like him and I kinda get joked on for it. I just tell him dude is crazy but he can spit. But i'm from the south so we like that dirty south rap and Em kinda mainstream guess thats why they dont like him.
