Dude is consistent with the hits and all.

He should be doing 700k in 2 weeks, and going plat in a month. image

Discuss.

His fanbase(black people) don't buy records.

All the other top stars in the game majority of their fans are white.

And white people buy CD's

I support the MMG movement.

When was the last street-oriented rapper to go platinum?

Jeezy did it back in '06 but the YMCMB takeover makes it pretty clear that cross-over acts are the only ones going platinum.


T.I. didnt even go platinum last shot.


The only platinum rappers left are Emenim, JayZ, Drake, Nicki, Kanye, LiL Wayne, & JayZ.

This kind of stupidity always makes me laugh.

How bout his music gets stale after a few spins. Does ANYONE listen to old ross? NO. Dude makes a bunch of throw away hits.

That's your opinion in your world and your circle but if you asked a DJ they would tell you different.

Do you think DJs are spinning old Emenim records like "My name is" that went platinum but nobody over 18 wants to listen to after the first listen?

Ross actually hasn't had consistent success chart wise with singles. He catches traction here & there but the number of successful (relative) singles he has in comparison with the amount of singles he released it's not high at all.

People for whatever reason just don't buy his music...

The last time Jeezy went platinum was 2006 the same year as Ross debut.

Check the RIAA and Jeezys Twit-pics he has two platinum plaques for TM103 & The Inspiration and 2 plaques for the Recession and Tm103.

I'm an intelligent man so I use common sense.

If Jeezy posts pics of his two individual solo platinum plaques for TM101 & The Inspiration then I believe he's platinum.

If the RIAA who award certifications have it listed on their website that TM101 & the Inspiration are both platinum and that The Recsession & TM103 are both Gold then I believe that those albums went Gold and Platinum.


The sad thing about you is that you can't provide any evidence of a platinum solo certification for The Recession and Jeezy can't either other than a collage that Def Jam made.

You pat yourself on the back almost every post. Who are you trying to convince, me or you?

Do you not see the RIAA logo on the picture?

Don't get into this "sad" stuff boy, we already know how this will turn out. DJ Folk posted the picture, there's nothing up for interpretation here.

You're wrong. Now if you're such an "intelligent person who uses common sense" then those 2 traits dictate that it'd be smart to man up & own this. You're in your 30s dude, start acting like it...

I've always said Ross's numbers don't really reflect his popularity, consistently going gold isn't bad by any means, but he just isn't a platinum selling artist for w/e reason. Nobody would deny he's one of the most popular rappers the past couple of years. It's not like there are more than maybe 7-8 guys who sell more than him, maybe he will crack a mill with this next album but idk. This one has the best shot I think, if this one doesn't crack a mill then he never will.

For my family with common sense:

Here is Jeezys Twitpic ccount

He shows all of his platinum plaques except for "The Recession" & "TM103"/

Heres the RIAA that actually award certifications and have every song and album that Jeezy has every had certified in their database since his debut.



So you have to ask yourself why their is no visible evidence of a platinum plaque for "The Recession" in Jeezy's collection of pics or in the database of the agency that awards them.



Do your own research and come to a conclusion based on facts and not emotion.
