only reason j cole did decent numbers was cause his STATE supported him big time..and add a few fans from diff states..he got that amount..but now that his state and those people got it..only people gettin it is the people that either waited for paychecks, or heard of him now..which are low numbers.

Work Out has been a hit for about month now.....It's been in the Rhythmic Top 40 and Urban Top 40 since late August/early September and now it's Top 20 on both charts and still rising.

He sold 217K....that's good for J. Cole, but those aren't "amazing" numbers. A 75% drop off for album that sold 217K firsrt week isn't as "fishy" as a 75% drop for an album that sold 1 mil in the first week. (BTW, I don't think Hov or Birdman bought the majority of Cole and Wayne's albums. You're a fu*king retard if you truely believe that)

You 90s babies.....y'all just don't get it. Y'all aren't used to seeing an artist sell with out a big radio hit. sh*t happened all the time back 90s....and you don't even have to go back THAT far.....Nas and DMX did it all the time back in the late 90s and early 00s.

The internet >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Radio. Welcome to the 2010s


Cole is the hottest name in hip hop at this moment. You don't have to like him or his music....but give credit where credit is due. sh*t, I think Wayne is the most overrated rapper of all time, but I'm not gonna go out of my way to discredit the man. He's one of the biggest stars we've ever had in this genre.....I don't like his music, but I'm not gonna deny facts because of that.

I don't think that Birdman bought Carter 4
I don't think that Jay-Z bought Cole World
It doesn't makes sense for them to buy their own artists cd's, n*ggaz need to make a profit
albums don't drop 75% normally, off course I'm going to suspect something has happened nahmean
Yes nas went gold/Platinum without a hit because of his has loyal fanbase, e.g me
I know for fact nas 2nd week sales never dropped 75%
But who knows 75% sales drop might happen from next week, we shall see
fu*k the radio when I have a ipod

at this pace he will never go gold
Judging by the way things are going for Big Sean and Wiz, he'll reach gold by the end of next year at best.

And lets be real, the only reason Cole did those numbers was because all his fans bought like 4 albums each. Yall seen the pics when the album dropped.

So, First week sales/4 = 54,300 is around what he should've sold if his fans weren't so thirsty.

pretty much expected. his fans are the ones who all copped his album the first week. n*gga aint got no hit single so i don't see how many expected him to continue selling at a high pace.

and adele's album is pretty good plus she appeals to both the young and older crowds

People ain't trying to fall asleep anymore so they decided to save they money for the one and only Drake.

this is how you know drake fans are living with their parents, and probably under 20.

the reason why hip hop sales fall so sharply after the 1st is because we base the value of the music on 7 days instead of "until the next one drops" our culture is hardwired on getting free music do to the last decade of p2p program and rappers over saturating the market with free mixtapes.

Britney spears Dont drop mixtapes
Linkin park dont drop mixtapes
Taylor swift don't drop mixtapes

yet any of these artist can drop a album and stay on the charts for months off of touring and one single why is that? I think we all know the answer.

60K in the 2nd week for Cole is nice. F*ck the decline in sales.

That Adele album is damned good for people wondering why it stays at 100K a week. I been trying to put people on it for months now.
