If Rick Ross GFID Does NOT Go Platinum. Will It Be Considered A Failure?
 

 
So according to MTV he is the hottest MC of 2012. Now every year since they had this list every artist that was number 1 next album went platinum.

2007
Lil Wayne
Carter 3(2008)

2008
Kanye West
808s & Heartbreak(2008)

2009
Jay-Z
Blueprint 3(2009)

2010
Eminem
Recovery(2010)



so with that stat. If Rick Ross Does NOT go platinum with God Forgives I Don't. Will it be considered a failure?

and i mean mainstream success not the quality of the album

Just posted this in the other thread about will Ross ever go plat, so I just copied and pasted an excerpt from it:


"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."

Wow, y'all really mad that Rozay on top?

The album will be considered a failure if the quality of the album is poor...has absolutely nothing to with sales.

no,

im expecting more from him if he is on top. any of the people i named didn't go platinum y'all would diss/clown them forever. but rozay gets a pass?

i like ross but if you're the hottest hip hop act out then im going to need your fan base support to be higher than 700k.

The fact is that if he doesn't have sales to back him up his all hype.

Exactly...I mean look at how GFID is shaping up to be....Co-Sign/Production from Dr Dre on the album, so you know Def Jam is going all out with the budget as well as Ross himself. This will easily be his most anticipated work to date.

But really tho, it's not like I care he only gone gold and sh*t

I mean Port Of Miami sold 800K-900K last time I checked and that's still goddamn good for someone like him. Surprised that didn't hit plat by now...

Personal Opinion,

I think Ross is going platinum with this album. NOT because he is a platinum artist but because the industry and those who invested in him will see to it his numbers hit 1mil+ in sells within a few months of the album's release.

Lately he has had Timberland, And Dre backing him.

Dre is backing him (in my opinion) for the same reason puff backed him, because of the potential for dollar sign figures.

Ross is an ok artist, disregarding his falsified lyrics and studio created criminal image. He has been getting alot of support from producers and industry kat's, and it would be a waste of money to not "see" him go platinum.

this is going to be his 1st platinum lp, I'm willing to bet money on this.
