Seems to me someone got it all wrong. Why was it so much hype ? He will go on to sell a million, thats a fact. But to takes months means the hype was just flutter. 50 sold about 6.7 million albums 3 months in.

This is during a failing economy :wtf: 50 was what? 5 years ago? Cmon now

FAILING ECONOMY ? Em ? Two miilion ? Sure you want to run with that comment. I think drake was over hyped. Drake will never go on to sell 35 million records like 50. This isnt about 50, its about how drake sells failed.

Controversy. 50 and drake aint the same artist. If they where 50 probly wouldn't have. Dude shut down the biggest artist at that time. Just different times.

So controversy will make you sell 11.2 million albums ? Maybe more artist need to go that route. Dont think it was all about that, is was just a flat out classic.

It has a lot to do with the fact that TML sucks. If he'd have dropped a classic album like 50 did, he'd have sold a lot more.

U cant compare these days to 7 years ago. EMINEM only sold 2 mil so far. 7 years ago, he'd probably be at about 4 milly right now. Jay would b at about 2 or 3. n*ggas is sellin less. It happens.

Most dont benefit from longer in the game and i dont think he will be able to continually reinvent his style to keep his core fans interested while at the same time bring in new ones,in other words he has peaked(quote me on that when his other albums come out)

Eminem is at 3,975,700 worldwide which is impressive but Gaga did a fair bit more(over a longer period)so there is room for improvement with his next album,dont see any rapper getting near him.


Being on your 6th album is not an advantage than being on youre 1st especially when the media are hyping you like Drake was being hyped.50 had the huge hype aswell and thats why get rich was so successful(800k 2 weeks in a row)

Enough already, just admit drakes album was a flop. There was so much hype, he's standing next to the biggest artist around " WAYNE". I'm sure the record company dumped about 5-8 million in promo. His ads was all over.
