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
That Reflection Eternal joint was off the hook. DAMN, that album was awesome...

Word, brotha. Only sold like 20K first week though I believe, and I think I'm the only dude in Coney Island who owns a retail copy of the album. It's a damn shame.

Cuz he sells 754,000 he's the best.......lol
90% of his sales come from white people that want to be him

He's another vanilla ice.
....but he has done this for EVERY single album, you dont see much of people getting 750k+ sales the first week, but to judge it on because white people are the majority of buying his album is just stupid.

Vanilla ice, how many cds went platinum for him?
hell, even a compilation album went platinum and he was on 2-3 songs.

it really is, but then again, this type of hip hop is a very niche type of hip hop. That album, it felt like, was for the real fans who was there when Rawkus was a force in underground hip hop.

Wow and this dude didn't even have any crazy promo did he?

s**t, did he have ANY promo at all?
He spent millions upon billions on a Emwow advert and paid Paulie Shore 48million for an album review


Seriously he did f**k all til a few weeks ago but he has stepped promotion up on chat shows and the like,surprised there is still no 2nd single out





People keep posting those pics,lets even things out


[video - click to view]





These sales also squash the rumore the only reason Relapse did good was because it was his comeback

Yeah that's true. They might not go platinum, but dudes who do go platinum (i.e.- Eminem, Jay-Z, soon to be Drake, etc.) look up to Reflection Eternal and The Roots and 'em, so that speaks volumes, a lot louder than any platinum plaque or money stack.

Took the words right outta my mouth. Money is nice, but respect in the hip hop community is a better thing to have. The sales that Reflection Eternal got, no matter how much it is, doesn't compare to their fanbase.

But, much props to both Em and Drake. They both did their things with their respective albums.

Eminem said in the new billboard album it didnt matter if he did 80mil 1st week he cared more about appreciation from fans and his peers.

I know this is a little late i usually dont post much i just get enertainment out of reading other people's opinions... But I'm black I got to college... I'm educated and I'm going to law school after college. Half my friends are black half my friends are white and more of my black friends rate em higher than my white friends. ( me including). My white friends still think waynes the best rapper alive but most my black friends give em his props for his lyrical talent even if they can't relate to everything he talks about. But at least he talks about something other than money ho's and objectifying black women. But whatever to each their own. And yes I bought Recovery.

Damn madd racist black dudes on here. Where are you motherf**kers in real life tho? I chill with 90% black dudes and they all bump some Em. they dont go out and buy the s**t but then again they dont buy any albums ha, they listen to it and give Em his props.

As a white guy with almost all black friends and a black girlfriend I don't see the hate towards Em in real life.

So either the black ppl on Boxden are a bunch of low life uneducated retards, or everyone i chill with is too afraid to say anything about Em in real life.

I'm gonna guess its option number 1.

If you're Black and you don't live under a rock, then help give him some damn credibility in this thread.

I know soo many ppl that listen to Em that are cool educated diverse ppl. So you 16 clowns on boxden that hate on Em in every single thread please inform me what the deal is?
