i understand what TS is saying, or atleast this is what i'm going to say.....

with the amount of hype Drake got, people were talking like dude was going to sell 5 million copies and s**t

platinum isn't a flop in today's world by any means, it's a very good showing, especially for your first album

but the way people were hyping him up, saying his buzz was bigger than 50's and how he was going to sell more than 50, saying he'd be bigger than Eminem, saying he'd have the highest selling album of the year and s**t

that didn't happen.

Couldn't have said it better. Drake has talent, its just average.

ADMIT WHAT ?


Please tell us your secret.
Okay i'll reveal my secret.. conveniently it was already leaked by someone else.

"Who else is going platinum right now? comparing Em to Drake is beyond retarded. You're talking about one of the best selling artists ever. Nobody can f**k with Em in that regard and you want to say Drake flopped cuz he can't match his numbers? Then that means everyone who's dropped is flopping cuz nobody is smelling Em's numbers."

Why the threadstarter sound like a grade-A hater.... hahaha, how can you hate so heavy on some1 u don't know....

Hater ?

WOMEN LIE---------MEN LIE---------############### DON"T.

Why can't we all agree that this album never lived up to the hype. He sings all through the album, it could be nominated for best R&B album. Wouldn't be suprised if that did happen.

Question.... Who said his buzz was bigger than 50's........ Fans and Bloggers (which are fans with a website lol).... it seems like this "overhyped" buzz was perpetrated by the fan, and now the fan is reneging and tryin' to call him a failure for going only platinum hahahahah.... that s**t sounds stupid..

Even though I think Drake is a.ss his people dropped the ball by waiting if they put it out last year when YM ruled the radio he would've done his numbers. They tried to do that Carter 3 s**t by stalling the release to build up the hype and it backfired.

What part are you talking about besides what has already been public knowledge? When trying to sound witty goes wrong I guess. Want to try again ?
There's no need to go into detail because you already have a predetermined overlook on the whole situation and all your doing is speaking on subject matters you know nothing about, while making claims you can't even back up....


...your comparisons aren't logic and your reasoning is laughable.

When are people going to figure out radio play doesn't = crazy record sales. Record companies pay the stations to play, alot of time its forced. Wake up.

It was only 2003, I remember mad ppl downloading, burning, and bootlegging GRODT. i remember mad ppl burning, downloading, and bootlegging Eminem Show and that was like 1-2 years before that.
