You guys are really not that smart. he even says it in his own words and its not going through your head.

"He doesnt buy records he presses them"

it only costs the manufacturer 60,000 dollars tops to shelve 1 million records. the fact he says he presses them is clear cut sign these numbers are fudged as fu*k.

When someone says if baby bought his own records he would go broke is an idiot. baby pays 26 cents a unit and sells them to you for 10-15 dollars.

it would cost baby realistically under 100,000 to buy his own million records that he pressed.

yall are idiots. i see u baby nice hustle.
hey jackass, in order for the albums to count towards first week numbers the barcode has to be scanned by the retailer as sold. That's why it called soundSCAN. He has to go out to best buy and actually buy the album at retail prices. Or do you think best buy and other stores are willing to lose out on the small amount of profit they're getting and selling the album to baby for basically nothing?

Pressing cd's isn't the hard part, selling them is. And where are you getting the $100k to buy 1 million albums number from? If printing a million copies is all it took to get a platinum plaque , everybody would be moving millions of units. Carter 4 has 2million copies already pressed up. You wouldn't press up that many damn albums if you weren't intending to sell them anyway. Supply and demand.

I said baby would be broke because of the cost of buying back his own album. it doesn't matter if it cost him 100k to press the cd or $10. When he goes to the stores and buys the albums at retail cost he's going to be out of millions if he's buying a 100k+ copies every time his artist drop.

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.
Finally someone who knows what they're talking about.

as much as I don't care for Wayne's music, but there is no way baby bought that many albums. For sound scan to count it needs to be bought and scanned in the register.

just give him his prop and move on.

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.

Technically, Yes.

Realistically, No.

The more albums Wayne sells, the more valuable he is as a tour commodity. We all know Tour money is the real money they looking for.

If they can say "Wayne did a milli again"

They can also say "We wanna raise his tour rates"
