Not shocked by these numbers, Lupe has a large following.. The n*gga did have a march thrown in his favor.. How many artist have fans that would even take the time out to do something like that?

The thing is, like Lupe Hunter said.. "Lupe won but not a win he should be proud of"

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

TELL WHAT IS THE BENEFIT IN DOING THAT?


picture yourself as the CEO of a major label would u buy 100k copies of an album? and pay the rapper his money ? hahahahahah sometimes you people make no sense
In case you haven't noticed from Lupe's constant b**ching and the actual sound of "Lasers", but that album is so record label influenced it might as well have a "presented by Atlantic Records" sticker on the cover.

You're thinking about the few thousands that Atlantic Record spends/loses instead of looking at how foolish Atlantic would look if they applied their foolproof "radio friendly" formula to Lupe's album and it only sells like 40K first week.

Side note: Rae's album was dope. Irrelevant to this thread, but still dope.

Definitely a shocker, but Lupe's Fanbase and support behind the album was crazy. I'm sure many diehard fans bought multiple copies and supporters grab a copy due to all the drama

So do these album sales include digital or retail only? This 200k, is it a combination of both?

Haterz gonna hate LASERS is nowhere near as bad as y'all make it. If u actually listened to his lyrics and appreciate his different flows on the cd u would see its not as bad as y'all make it. Its 3.75. And B4 yenz start saying stupid s**t I got both of Lupes first cds the day they came out also and appreciate them for what they are. Quit b**ching and just appreciate The Music[S][/S]

yall think album sales on the rise?
no. BUT what i do find interesting are the artists like Lupe that are increasing their album sales in the climate we're in now. why labels aren't studying this to capitalize on it is baffling to me.
 MOTM said:
Why would a label buy albums? They would have let him do whatever he wanted with the album if that was the case
yep. totally correct.

Ducktales... I heard nothing about this album. There r artists out there with major buzz and barely doing those types of numbers. Label bought a lot of cd's and Lupe will have to pay them back.
