Nah Rae didn't sell because his s**t is soooooo played out. We ain't in the f**kin' '90's anymore B.

You all like to say you like these albums that drop by artists' that are in their 40's now rappin' about s**t like they're still 20 to sound like you have a bit of knowledge on hip-hop.

f**k outta here you herbs.

don't know how I feel about this.....I'm glad he's having success, but it gives Atlantic the right to say "I told you so" and keep forcing him to make Pop albums.

Lasers was decent, but I don't want another Pop album from Lupe

The f**k do I care what album is better?

Raekwons album sucked.. same old s**t that he was saying back in '94.

s**t was that 16 years ago? not too sure.

I'll listen to OB4CL if I wanna hear that s**t.

.. Sorry bud, But I ain't on no stanery s**t and compare albums by 2 completely different artists'. You mad cause Raekwon has fallen the f**k off?

First off, if the numbers are real I think that is a good thing because there is no point having a message if either no one is hearing it or if you are "preaching to the choir".
Secondly....I think I have officially lost my mind.......because I love this album.....I know, I know it is not F&L or The Cool, it has some corny hooks, the production is pop/techno many times and he doesn't get as intricate lyrically. I don't disagree with people's feelings on this album. However I've been playing this album in the whip for the last week, the drive to work and then home is perfect to get through the entire album. It has 2 skippables, but I found that completely depends on my mood those being "I don't want to care..." and "Out of My Mind". I can't explain it, thought I would play this album for a couple of days, I got it to keep up the collection. But it's gonna stay in the whip for a while. Not even gonna try to justify it.

Congrats to Lupe...

The album IS, however, a massive disappointment... Not a terrible album, but what I expect from Lupe, a disappointment.

I have the same mixed I did when Nicki Minaj dropped her album: Congrats on the sales but I wish your album was better.

I refuse to believe non-dumbed down quality music won't sell but maybe Kanye's album was simply an exception.

Sorry but you can be stuck in the '90's.

@ you being a simple minded clown like the rest of BX.

Raekwons album was garbage, only highlight was Mef.

Didn't know you weren't allowed to like all kinds of genres.. sorry but theres more to life than gang banging and still thinking you're selling crack cocaine @ the age of 40.

Get outta here ya bum.

You mad?

I'll take house music any day over the new Raekwon album. You mad because someone else doesn't have the same opinion as you?

Sorry Mr. Hip-Hop Head.

The album sucked. & your opinion on Lupe is flawed just look @ your post.

Thanks for coming out though ya clown, you're the one who came into the Lupe thread talking like anyone gives a f**k that Raekwon dropped an album .

FOR ALL THE PEOPLE SAYING HIS LABEL BOUGHT 100K COPIES OF THEIR OWN PRODUCT

TELL WHAT IS THE BENEFIT IN DOING THAT?

congrats to lupe for selling out and making a lot of money!!!!


i would have thought a guy like lupe would be the last to create an album according to how his label wanted but hey if it makes you sell that much then all the power to him!

he better not ever talk down on the mainstream and the mindless s**tty music labels are making nowadays cause that would make him a hypocrite at this point.


Now Rae on the other hand kept it street and might not have sold nearly enough but managed to avoid looking like a corny pus*yhole for the sake of a few bucks LOL
i dont think you that when your under a major label you have to make music the label will accept and release.

Its not an indy label where you are allowed to do watever you want and release watever

no reason to hate lupe fiasco on his sales makes no sense

people hate him but then if it was a good album they complain he didnt sell enough and got cheated hahahaha

i agree the album was not as good as his previous ones but for sure it was alot better than alot of bulls**t that comes out. To see Lupe sell 200k plus in a week in 2011 is success in my eyes regardless ..he already made it clear this album was controlled hella and all he can do is listen to his boss like anybody else working a 9-5 has to listen to his boss..simple


F&L 2 coming soon so I dont really care

you n*ggaz are so ignorant.. Lupe sold 200K because he has one of the most loyal fanbases in hip hop.. fans knew Lupe's situation and they went out to buy the album & supported him..not only that but

The Show Goes On got alot of radio play and songs from the album were all over ESPN & other networks...

n*ggaz saying record label bought copies?

what kinda ignorant s**t is that?

y the f**k would u buy somethin you've invested in
