Thats true. I just hope it goes well so he'll have more freedom to do whatever he wants. I mean they gave this album mad promotion to NBA/CBB games, etc... so it should do well.

Probably Gold in a short period of time.

people who think Atlantic actually bought his album are in complete denial, and lost horribly. Why would a record company in the horrible climate the industry is in, spend over a million dollars on his album?? do you realize that THIS IS WHAT THEY WANTED. A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE ALBUM.

"The Show Goes On" was a manufactured hit and has gone gold moving towards platinum and has over 8 million hits on youtube. His album has been #1 on Itunes for the last 2 weeks. And it goes without mentioning that he has a solid solid fanbase

this is what exactly what Atlantic wanted, and now in return they better give Lupe his freedom on his next project.

this is a great look for hip hop regardless of the Album being a 3/5 IMO and not on Lupe's Standards.

@Mr. Zone 6 how does it feel, since you care about sales so much, that Gucci has never gone gold? and hes been on a major for 5 years?? didn't his last CD do only 60k first week? Banks almost did that and he was on an independent

Glad to hear it. Got my copy in the mail today, but I've been playing the album off youtube over the weekend because I had to hear why the feedback was so sharp. I don't care about sales. In a way I was hoping it flopped to eff with Atlantic. But at the end of the day though I would have copped anyway but it goes to prove Atlantic's point. f**k making "real" music for the "real" fans because they don't buy s**t. He makes 2 arguable "classic" albums, that win grammy's but didn't do numbers. I don't think either of his first albums has gone plat even over this much time. According to riaa.com "Cool" is Gold. He makes pop s**t and it sells.
If people don't go out and buy albums then this is what we are going to keep getting. And it doesn't matter if they are indie either, cause indie's are also businesses that need money.
