Stop with the tired a.ss excuses. It only takes 3,000 copies to chart on the Billboard Top 200 and that n*ggas album last year missed it COMPLETELY. iTunes or not.
The thing is if you can't respect his grind ,cool your prerogative, but I find your way of looking at this to be wack, cuz he's never really had a label pushing him even when he was on a major
he didn't get the help nikki has gotten so he left and supported himself, his first album was before the warner bros. deal and 2nd was a compilation of old and new songs which was released after the major deal.
You keep talking about sales but the point you are missing is that he with the help of few others has built his own fanbase and it is steadily growing, no major producers, co-signs ect.
your girl has been on Drakes platinum album,Young Money's album Birdman's album, Usher's album ect. she has major help and wiz still beat her. If Nikki was to release an album b4 her young money affiliation she woulda sold like 2000 copies if that many .Real Talk
