I know what you are saying and I dont disagree, but the perception from TeamCTE will be that Ross lost, if he does anything less than what Jeezy did, which I thought was 216, but its really 233k.
Doesnt mattter that record sales are even slower this year than last, and Jeezy dropped right before Xmas, them dudes is gonna go crazy if Ross does less than that.
I thought Ross had a for sure 350k in him, but after seeing Bieber do only 347k, I got Ross down to 250k now.
So even though 200k is an overall W, its still a percieved L.
true. But what the whole "cte" click wont admit is that jeezy only sales cause he has a ton of white fans who buy his music and i know that sh*t for a fact. I went to 2 of his concerts and wont nothing but young white people between 18-25. Went to a ross concert and 85% of the crowd was black. Its been proven over and over again. If the young white demographic isnt on your side in hiphop, there's 90% chance you wont go plat or it will take you longer to reach plat.
The only argument these biased, illogical anti-ross campaigners aka "jeezy's d!ck chokers" can make on this thread are sales. Sales dont mean sh*t. What youre saying is true though. Same sh*t happened with 50cent. All his stans could do was bring up 50's past stats concerning sales, even though we all know ross won and is the better overall artist. Teflon don did better than 50 last album yet his stans would still chant about how GRODT was multi platnium and how ross never went plat.. And Ross is a threat to jeezy. PERIOD!. Thats why jeezy sparked beef with ross then within 24 hrs, ross made a diss record to jeezy and jeezy backed off and even denied dissing ross in the first place. He knew ross would come at him and make him look stupid. All this cause jealous was jealous of that bmf record.
Regardless of sales, Ross is the better overall artist. These little anti ross debaters know ross is threat and they know that album will hit hard and take ross on another level. I mean come on, if these dudes truly thought ross was going to fail, they wouldn't be coming to multiple threads concerning him just to post negative sh*t. Its pathetic and quite comical at the same time.
Even if ross does less number than jeezy, it still dont change he fact that ross is the better overall artist. Better lyricism, more colabs, better beat selection, consistency and better promotional skills.
Ross has made it clear that hes not crossing his music over, yet still he manages to make Forbes, do decent numbers, have tons of producers begging to work with him and still keep a buzz in which hes had since 2009/2010.
