why would he waste his money buying albums when he's getting most of the money anyway? Like Baby said that's hustling backwards. Buying 500k copies at $10 a pop is $5M out his pocket.

So a.ssuming C4 actually sold 400k, that's $4M of profit BUT he spent $5M buying copies so he actually lost a million trying to boost numbers.

Birdman is so stupid. Just by what he said to the radio just proves he bought them. Hows birdman gonna say "I press and distribute the cds if i bought them that be hustling backwards".
That sh*t aint hustling backwards cause all that money that he would have used to buy the albums goes right back to him. SMH

no it doesn't Don't believe that "I press and distribute" sh*t, Universal fronts the cost on that. If they weren't, Cash Money would be the biggest independent label on the planet right now. The reason you even sign to a major is to utilize their distribution channels and marketing dollars. Birdman isn't buying albums.

and even if Birdman was taking the cost of pressing the cds and Universal just distributed them. Cash Money would have folded YYYYEEAARS ago on that business model because he would be pressing millions of cds AROUND THE WORLD, out of pocket, and then buying them at retail just to push himself further into the red.

You don't make something and then buy it yourself because you're losing money. You wouldn't sell 10,000 copies to best buy at a wholesale price, just to go in there the next week to buy 5,000 back

Aslong as eminem and Dre alive aftermath runs rap whenever detox drop it will sell more then carter 4
Aftermath had the shortest run of all of those labels I listed tho. There was no Aftermath in 95 and there isn't one now. I was talking on longevity and consistency... Aftermath is anything but. Sure they can pop in every few years with a monster album.. but Im talking about labels that do numbers every single year.

Actual Conversation:

SWAY - "So how's life treating you."

BIRDMAN - “I press and distribute CDs, ain’t no need for me to buy em. 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, 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.”


Guilty as charged
I'm crying

nobody was saying this when juvenile "400 degreez" sold 5 million....
You must be kind of young b/c when that album dropped it didn't sale the way you might think. 400 Degreez was a slow burn and didnt really start selling until Back Dat Azz up dropped which was the second single. Hell they even repressed it which had that horrible Jay Z verse on that

Ha remix bldaaaat bldaaat bldaaat
It took 2 years for that album to sell 5X platinum

Why do people keep saying it would be a waste of money

All this n*gga baby does is waste money buying objects that lose value

Threads are made daily on his purchases

At least buying albums helps his brand and gives his biggest artist an even bigger buzz

Those bugattis, black diamond chains and private jets don't do that

Listen, CMR has a pressing and distribution deal with Universal Music Group, one of the few deals of that type left, where CMR handles the initial pressing of the product and a.ssociated costs and Universal handles the distribution of that product to the big retail chains and the promotional costs, production fees, legal and marketing fees. Simply put, Birdman provides the product needed to handle the forecasted sales and UMG handles the tasks and fees to get out to the masses in an adequate and timely fashion, and both parties do their best to keep cost to a minimum. So in order to handle the costs projected to effectively push the product, Birdman could or should not buy their own albums because it supersedes the profit margin they have projected for the album after the liability/cost. Simply put, just to rub it in Hov's face that C4 was a better success then WTT then buying albums is not feasible because again, it severly cuts into their expected profit yield, and as Birdman so effectively said, " be hustling backwards, bruh" lol. Plus, RIAA and other entities have strongly cracked down on album pos scans so simply put, if there isn't an actual scan at the point of sale or a documented transaction shown where it was purchased online it doesn't count. So again,if he made those numbers, he MADE those NUMBERS, end of story.
