Birdman Denies Buying Copies of Lil Wayneís Tha Carter IV
 

 

As soon as the official Nielsen SoundScan numbers for Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV came out yesterday (September 6), naysayers have gone online to allege that Cash Money co-founder, Bryan “Baby” Williams bought copies of the disc to bulk up the LP’s stats.

As previously reported, CIV sold 964,000 units in its first week, but according to Baby, he didn’t buy any of those copies.

“I press and distribute [CDs], ain’t no need for me to buy em.,” Birdman told Sway on his Shade 45 morning show earlier today. “That’s hustling backwards, we ain’t in it for that. I ain’t ever been a part of that steam to be buying records. We don’t do that homie. That don’t go with what we do. We true about what we do, we real about what we do, we work hard every day at it.”

“There’s no such thing as me buying those CDs,” he added. “I wouldn’t even play it like that. I don’t think that’s gangsta, nor fair ball, I ain’t even in it for that.”

Lil Wayne took to Twitter to thank his fans for their support last night.

“Wow!!!!!!!!!! I have the best fans in the universe,” he wrote. “I thank u all. Hard work and dedication pays well. Young Mula baby!(weezy voice) (sic).”

and yall dumb for even thinking dat sh*t...but if em does it "he's the king, he has loyal fans, his fan-base is huge and etc"...Wayne did 1 million in a week off C3 because he really has LOYAL fans and he's a superstar!!!!!....why you think him and eminem both is goin to Sydney, AUS to perform???... and this isn't no damn small building that they're goin to be performing in....this is U2 type crowd!!!.....yall need to stop being bias with this hip hop sh*t and open your minds to know that it's highly possible for him to put up such numbers because of his large fan base..... so for yall to keep running with this oh the label bought his albums is making yall look real Envious!!!!!!!

im pretty much sure that question was asked !!!!...there is noooo way he was going to burst out in the middle of the interview and say "ďI press and distribute [CDs], ainít no need for me to buy em.,Ē Birdman told Sway on his Shade 45 morning show earlier today. ďThatís hustling backwards, we ainít in it for that. I ainít ever been a part of that steam to be buying records. We donít do that homie. That donít go with what we do. We true about what we do, we real about what we do, we work hard every day at it.Ē

Some people let bullsh*t walk and others don't, him going on the radio denying don't mean sh*t, celebrities flock to some sort of media to deny/confirm rumors all the time. Reaching ..I wasn't one of the million people to cop his CD, but it's not hard to believe, he's done rock music, he's skateboarding ...since his last album he has opened his fan base a lot.

The problem with you people is this,

if he denies it he is guilty as charged because he is defending himself

if he ignores it, he is still guilty because now he is ducking the accusations.

Please, Wayne won end of story.

If he did buy CDs, he probably could write it off on his taxes as business expenses. Now I don't think Birdman bought albums, but if Tyga does 200K then I'm gonna be suspicious.

BIRDMAN - ďI press and distribute CDs, ainít no need for me to buy em. Thatís hustling backwards, we ainít in it for that. I ainít ever been a part of that steam to be buying records. We donít do that homie. That donít go with what we do. We true about what we do, we real about what we do, we work hard every day at it.

innocent until proven guilty. Until then, if he ain't caught, then he played the game well. People want to be part of a trendy crowd, even if it wasn't to beat WTT, buying albums is strategic, it makes people perceive Lil wayne as still relevant and a hot topic even though he may not be. Makes alotta naysayers reconsider his current skills and perceive it as better. Also, it would probably make alotta people buy the album after seeing that so many people bought it.

But do know this, birdman DOES lose money if he did infact buy those albums, the money don't go back to him, cuz universal will cop their 30% so he'll basically be losing 30% of the money he put into carter 4
he make that 30% back easily just by having Wayne in the papers (900k albums sold will do that)
