Currensy & Big sean Album sales
 

 
Twitter Followers - 560,093
Big Sean
Finally Famous: The Album
87,000
87,000


Twitter Followers*- 279,852
Curren$y
Weekend At Burnies
23,000
23,000


something is wrong with those number's... how the hell you have that many twitter followers and only sell 87,00 & 23,000????

I'm a fan of big sean, but those numbers are depressing. For one hes co-sign by kanye, he had the whole ym admit to stealing his flow. I just don't get it at all, I really don't.


And as for Curren$y, he needs to just stop rapping. You can only rap for free weed and clothes for so long. and for those who are saying spitta did good.. wtf is good about selling only 23,000 copies??? somebody explain.

Big Sean also has a hit single with "My Last". Honestly tho, Chris Brown carried most of that single and I'm sure most people don't even know who Big Sean is. Dude isn't that well known.

Sometimes new artists grab a hook artists or collabo with another artists and while they get a hit, they don't really get the recognition because the other artist is better known and people a.ssociated with THAT person.

87k is pretty weak tho even for today's album sales standards. 23k is

If anything, the more twitter followers you have equals === more people that will download and not buy your sh*t.

this d!ckheads really tryin to compare sales with twitter followers
The reason is because it's free promo..if i was artist and had a lot of twitter followers i use it to my advantage.

those followers Rt that your album coming out .. makes trending topic which promotes you more... Twitter is a big outlet .. if spitta can't sell more than 50,000 copies he needs to just retire.

If you honestly dont understand the difference between twitter followers and sales...then you are an idiot

If you dont understand the difference with being an indie artist compared to other artists then your an idiot....

rappers always make more money in tours/endorsment/appearances than record sells.

i dont care how much a rapper is making that doesnt make me decide if i am going to listen to the artist or not by how much money they make a year.

they are all making more money than the average person.

i dont know if they making enough money to retire off thats not my personal concern.

if them n*ggaz flop then they flop all i care about is if the music is good.

not every fan or every twitter follower is going to buy your album when they can get it for free.

23K is good for Curren$y.. i did think Big Sean would of did 115k.. but he's really just popular amongst hip internet people. A lot of people on the streets don't know who he is.. or they do, but don't know what songs he has.
