n*ggas Sitting Saying The Man Didnt Go Platinum and n*ggas Posting Plaques and They Still Sitting Here Like "no no no thats not platinum".

Then We Say...Jeezy Said He Went Platinum With His 3 Last Albums,They Call The Man A Liar BUT....Sitting Here Defending A Artist Known For Lies In Media "oh I'm not a C.O."

So Im Done With This Topic But Trust & Believe Its Going Come Back Up Again.

And c'mon Mista Don't Play is not a good comparison to a major label release by an A-List rapper that came out 3 1/2 years ago compared to eleven. And the RIAA has all of Jay-Z's certifications, even back in '98 so yeahhhhhhh......
....Project Pat Name Came Out Cause Your Friend Used Pat As A Example of Artist Not Going Platinum and Project Pat Has Said Many Times That Album Went Platinum and He Got A Plaque For It But Everyone Excuse For This Debate Is...."it isnt on RIAA" and RIAA Doesnt Go Far Back With Their Databack.

Three Six Mafia's codeine-flavored "Sippin On Some Syrup" and his own breakout hit, "Chickenhead." His third LP, Mista Don't Play: Everythangs Workin, went platinum, even though he was sitting in jail on a robbery charge.

A quick google search with the keywords "Young Jeezy the Recession Platinum" yields no official sources announcing the Recession went Platinum. Only thing I could find was an old RIAA article announcing that the Recession went Gold in December of '08 ()

And c'mon Mista Don't Play is not a good comparison to a major label release by an A-List rapper that came out 3 1/2 years ago compared to eleven. And the RIAA has all of Jay-Z's certifications, even back in '98 so yeahhhhhhh......

And once again, c'mon son....RAPPERS LIE AND/OR RETARDS WHO DON'T FACT CHECK. All Jeezy was prolly told was "yeah The Recession shipped PLATINUM" and he gets the certification for it and im sure that was good enough for him. I mean shipping plat is an achievement just not as impressive as selling plat.

Those ignorant children must be 12 years old.


^^^^^Them mangy Mutts still too stupid to know what a platinum plaque looks like even when Jeezy has two of them posted on his TWITTER.

Recessive.

I feel foolish even arguing with brainwashed freaks who are defending sh*t that they cant even prove with credible evidence.

I need to try to sell one of these braindead lames a pet rock or some Beach property in Iowa.

This thread is stupid as fu*k (not because of you TS).

But...certification IS based on albums shipped (minus albums returned after a set period of time, I think 1 or 2 months)

This. The irony of Grafted defending a n*gga who lied about being a C.O. and knowing the Real Noriega I Bet if Officer Roberts said he was getting bricks for 17.5 Grafted wouldn't doubt it for a second.

Even though it's been proven multiple times that Jeezy has three platinum albums, the fact still remains that Ross has ZERO. Whether n*ggas believe Jeezy has two or three, Ross has none to his name.

To the original topic, Ross might not just be built to be a platinum selling artists no matter what he does. Despite all the buzz he may have, people don't support him enough to go buy his albums and help his sales, Ross may seem like the biggest thing right now, but the buzz he receives on the Internet is not an accurate representation because it'll seem like he has a cult-like following on the Web if we go based on that.

But Ross has more pressure on him this time around, crowned the #1 MC by MTV, 1 mil+ downloads of Rich Forever in 2 months, and getting major co-signs from big names in the industry. By this standard, he is expected to deliver a platinum album, and if he doesn't reach that status I'll consider GFID as a flop (retail-wise not the actual project itself) because all the rappers who had this type of momentum delivered sales-wise and record-wise in my recent memory.

Another Ross thread is probably in the HHS waiting on u homie, just don't turn it into another one of your baseless arguments where you name drop other artists and disregard facts.
