It makes absolutely no sense for Atlantic to buy albums, the f**k wrong with y'all
Most of BX isn't educated on such things.

dude think of it this way

lupe started to make album

atlantic was like lol that wack

lupe like cry cry booboo etc we know this part

lupe make album with atlantic pop beats and is like yo this album suck

fans are like damn this album sort of sucks and didn't expect it to sell much as lupe isn't a mainstream power house like for example your favourite rapper eminem

now he's selling and fans are like whoa unexpected hopefully we don't get another s**tty album tho

:)
If it had been tailor made to Boxdens desire would it have done aswell?

Eminem has had to do things the label wanted the same as most artists,the way i am speaks on that issue.

Why do people think Atlantic have no right to have some sort of a say in there investment?


Why would Atlantic buy them when Lupe is campaigning against them?

Do people realize theres a whole world out side of BX, and like I've been saying..everyone likes this album minus haters on the net and internet bloggers.
Clearly!!! If BX opinions mattered nicki minaj wouldn't be multi-platinum. & joe budden would would have the top spot on billboard 200 for the last 5 years.

Exactly. The want him to do well, but if the album didn't do well, they'd probably just cut him free as he's been giving them too many problems. It makes no damn sense financially for Atlantic to do so.

And yes, if it was tailored to BX's wants, it would've done awful. The public wouldn't have bought it and neither would be BX considering they bootleg s**t, good or bad.

Its lose lose basically,make an album they(his BX fans)like and then people would have a field day for it flopping or make an album that more people will like and hate on him for it.Thats pretty much the jist of it and its hard to balance the 2

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.

you nailed it.

Y'all sure someone ain't add an extra 2 to his sales figures? Maybe 20k but 220k, I doubt it. And there is a difference between shipping 220k and selling 220k. This smells like bulls**t and I don't see him on Billboard. This is like when Kim exaggerated Black Friday's sales.
