Enough of this BULL ISHHHHHHHH. 50 did 10 million in the US alone. His album wouldnt have went diamond if he didnt.
I like FIf and all man but he did not do 10 mill in the U.S., unless he sold 3-4 mill in the last 2 years. Check RIAA.com, and some other places, it was 6 mill, 7 mill at best by some sources, I dont even think MMLP has hit Diamond yet in the U.S. I dont think either has a diamond plaque, but i definetely know 50 doesn't.

In 03 Napster, Kazaa, and Limewire were pretty much on everybody's computer that I knew and the files were already in MP3 format when you downloaded them.

It's a good thing I don't listen to all this bulls**t industry hype. The first time I heard TML was 3 or so weeks after it came out. Wasn't even looking into dude .. don't have a mixtape of his or anything. I'm speaking strictly on the CD presentation overall. It's actually pretty good. Yes, he didn't do the numbers people were hoping for. Who cares?

He has a nice flow and you can tell he really thinks about what he puts down for lyrics. They may not be the most creative lines but I think he has a nice delivery and the overall content of the CD is nice. Mind you I didn't pay for the copy I jammed to (buddy who was staying with me bought the CD so i borrowed it a couple times) but I really wouldn't have been mad at it.

It's kinda like the first Clipse album: both have a lot of good points but there's something missing here and there to push it from good to awesome. However I feel unlike Clipse, (which im a long-time fan of btw) Drake will get better with time. If the rumors are true then all that work he's putting in should pay off someday or the other. Maybe he might be a late bloomer. Who knows? He has raw talent though. I'm actually glad he's working with Wayne and Nicki Minaj. He may need to hang around some real lunatics to turn into one. I've always like the crazy artists like the early Missy, Red n Meth and Busta so I hope he eventually turns into a psycho with skills someday.

I did put this kind of hype up for Clipse (and Lupe) and see where they turned out. I'm hoping this isn't the best of Drake so that I can really thank him later. It would be a shame if he gets worse, not better. Quality-wise.

Sales is irrelevant to me or the quality of music. Sales is a popularity vote, not a true test of skill. It's like being the homecoming king. Sure you got the title because you're cool now, but 10 years from now you'd be irrelevant and the geek who is making way more money than you will get all the attention.

Dumb thread, Thread starter took an L when comparing em #'s to drake's. You want to compare 50 to drake? Well 50 in 2003 vs drake in 2003 = 50 won. 50 in 2010 vs drake in 2010 = Drake won. Times of chnaged n*gga, get with da times and try not to make a fool of your self by posting these RIDICULOUS comparisons. And to the dude that said Drakes buzz was bigger than waynes with C3. REALLY? Come on son. F*k outta here with that bullsh*t.

I'm sure he's all down hill from this point. His next album won't sniff gold. I know its not about sales but the record biz is built off it.

Everyone needs to ignore this b**ch.

When I first saw this thread I thought hmmmmm....this sounds like something that dumb ajeanna b**ch would write. She almost fooled me with the new pic until I read someone on page 3 say chick looks like a tranny. At that time I looked at the AVY and what do you know.....it's the same damn annoying tranny that joined this site like 5 days ago and has been making retarded threads ever since.

Her other classic thread is one in which she claims Birdman isn't rich and doesn't make more than 5 mill a year. When everyone in thread posted comments in argument, all she did was post more annoying comments about how they have no source and they are wrong.

I think she's def. just begging for attention.

You almost had me fooled you butt ugly, oversized labia, pus*y licking tranny...but I knew it was you the second i saw those doo doo brown sharpied eyebrows.

And since I AM in this thread....the reason drake ONLY sold 1 milli (which is actually amazing) is because no one supports music anymore. PEOPLE DOWNLOAD IT. DRAKES ALBUM DID EXTREMELY WELL AND DEF LIVED UP TO THE HYPE. IT WAS A LOT OF R&B BECAUSE HE IS PARTLY AN R&B ARTIIST. END OF DISCUSSION. PLEASE GO MAKE ANOTHER ANNOYING THREAD NOW YOU f**kING DIKE.

No comment,your foolish with the personal atacks. I'm sure you will be banned soon.

Why are people downplaying this dude hype. I heard people saying he would eventually become a better artist then BIG,JAY,50,NAS and many more. Numbers arent everyhting, but it determines your status in hip hop.

RIGHT ?

Why are you getting mad about hype?

Hype is people stating their opinions, NOT FACT.

That's like getting mad that Bryan Pumper won't go platinum if he drops an album, even though he's getting hyped to high heaven on the internet.

If I hyped you up as the best poster ever which you clearly don't deliver on .. does that mean you're a failure?

edit: bad example ... obvious entrapment is obvious

Who said that.? Who? Who?


And no they don't determine your status in hip hop..... Nas is considered top 5, by some fools, and he hasn't moved units in ten years....
