I still don't understand why CONSUMERS get excited over sales. Supporting an artist is one thing, but really what is the benefit to you how much it sales beyond getting the music?

Some like seeing the deserving succeed.
I mean, I guess. To me it just seems like a popularity contest amongst the consumers. Same with opinions. If you don't like something is wrong with YOU. Just seems like people do it just to be in as opposed to supporting the art. I could be wrong tho....

Its just nice to see a great artist who is a great lyricist with no major singles to get great album sales. It shows that you dont have to go commercial to do big numbers.

If it didnt sell well i would still love the album. But im happy it did for an artist like kendrick lamar who truly deserves it.

n*ggas lowering the standard for success these days. Shame.
not that its just you can't measure what constitutes a success in 2012's market against what did in 10 or even 5 years ago.....

I say its a success simply cause his buzz is mainly by word of mouth with virtually no label push

I dunno about that, I think it's around half.

i.e.

250 k = 500 k

500k = 1 Mill

1 Mill = 2 Mill

but there's so many other new variables that factor into it nowadays, that even that's not an accurate system.
na 500k aint 1 mill

id say if you go 750k thats like going platinum nowadays ..but 500 is really really good

Why do you guys think possibly Kendrick sold more than Cole?

Both fan bases are damn near the same, with Cole having a wider variety of fans IMO

Kendrick had more co-signs than Cole though.

Cole had several singles, music video and radio play and toured everywhere

Kendrick still sold possibly sold more than Cole.
