This just further proves how pop-rap appeals to white kids that go out and buy albums and the whole point of "selling out"

Then why didn't Bobby Ray sell?

Maybe Lupe just has a big fanbase?

so simply dumbing down the metaphors & wordplay is selling out? even tho most the album is STILL a concious album? compare it 2 the garbage rap albums makin the top slots & the subject matter is totally different

I don't give a f**k about sales, but I'm ways happy to see my dude succeed, I'm sure you don't give a f**k if Gucci's next album only moves 5 copies if you enjoy the s**t right? But I know if he moved a mil in a week you would be like though right, because that's your mans no homo.


This is how all fans should feel IMO. Do sales matter as long as the music is of QUALITY then no, but in reality sales matter because if a n*gga isn't selling then a label isn't going to push that artist any longer. So as a FAN you should be geeked up to see an artist you love do good #'s on the charts, especially in this day of age.

If people don't buy a lupe album then he won't release other records, you don't need to appreactiate the actual cd people buying for sake of getting another one out

You think in the state that the record industry is in that they'd just blow $1Mil on Lupe??

The point of making Lupe do all this commercial a.ss music in the first place is so that it'd actually sell. If Atlantic wanted to dig themselves into a hole over $1 million, they would've released the type of album Lupe wanted to with all those singles that were flopping.

And how do you explain Lupe being #1, 4, and 5 on United States iTunes? Is that Atlantic with 4509245 different iTunes accounts purchasing it over and over? The f**k?

ummmm to promote the album you dumbass


its all part of promotion. are you going to buy an album that only sold 30k copies the first week and came in at 55 on the charts? ummmm no


fan/stans/new commers see he sold 220k and has the #1 album in the us and they are going to be more inclined to purchase his album come the second week.


they probably used some of his budget money to purchase the cd's


so yes i think before i reply

Then they'd spend that money on actual promotion, retard. There are albums that debut at #1, fall to the 20s and 30s the next week...and keep falling after that. Its already happened a few times this year.

A #1 barely means s**t as far as "promotion". Try again.
