Don't see the problem here.

Was hardly promoted, was marketed on the strength of Ye & Jay doing a album, that's it, they had one street single & had a single dropped about 2-3 weeks before the album released. I think these numbers are pretty damn good considering.

I look at it like people who were planning to buy it bought it, people who had no interest of buying, didn't. That simple.

Who still checks for physical sales..? The album broke iTunes' first week sales record (Zero Overheard with Digital). Physical + Digital sales put them just under a million records.

there no where near a mill. not even gold.

Ouch.......

According to Rolling Stone magazine, Eminem — not Jay Z or Kanye West — is the undisputed King of Hop Hop.

And why not? Black rappers have destroyed what once was a cerebral art form with their materialistic bragging, self hate and absentee father issues.

The ignorance that substitutes for Hip Hop today has caused true fans to turn away from the genre in droves.

While others are watching the throne, Rolling Stone was watching the numbers. Editors of the iconic music magazine used album sales and chart figures dating back 2 years in deciding who should take the crown.

“Thanks to his two latest chart-topping albums, 2009’s Relapse and 2010’s Recovery, the man otherwise known as Slim Shady sold more than two and a half times the number of albums as the second-ranked Lil Wayne during our survey period,” wrote Rolling Stone.

It doesn’t matter to Rolling Stone that Eminem, real name Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is bordering on 39 years old. Mathers embodies Hip Hop’s credo of “keeping it real” without having to tear up a $300K Maybach to do it.

or could it just be that....the white fan base is responsible for more than 50% of record purchases... lets not forget there are roughly 41 million black folks in the US (including mixed ppl) out of 311 million folks here.

What are you talking about? This first week debut will be up there with Adele and Lady Gaga as the best selling of the year.
