Nah.

Love Sosa views are real.

When the video debuted on YouTube, the term "Love Sosa" became a worldwide top Twitter trend for a good 4 hours of people tweeting it.

Now Mac Miller's views is kinda suspect
Yup. Love Sosa was uploaded the same day Keef had a front page story in some Chicago newspaper (forgot the name), but that explains the 10 million views in 2 weeks.

To put what you're saying in perspective, Hopsin had the worldwide number 1 trending topic on twitter for 'The Illmind Of Hopsin 5' and I doubt he has 20 million YouTube views. Interscope put that money down to push Keef's caché using the views as a vehicle, but just like Kreayshawn, they're just a mirage.
Ill Mind Of Hopsin 5 has 22 million views though, 4 has 19 million.

Besides I can tell if a video has fake views or not, for example:

DatPiff and Worldstar watch the fu*k out with them numbers. You're next.

Is anyone surprised by this though? People do this with twitter too, sh*t I've seen some things where you lay down $5 bucks for 10-20k instant followers. The Internet is still a fantasy land.
They've already been hit. MMG and Bad Boy juice up mixtape numbers to stay ahead of the next biggest artist. Go peep Black Bar Mitvah and Cabin Fever, and peep Mac n Cheese against Soul Tape. Aint no way in hell I'm runnin with French Montana being the most sought after artist on the internet, not doin that

But see that 21 and 19 million is over how long a time compared to Keef's? Someone is lying. At least in my opinion they are.

If Chief Keef's views were fake, you would see a 'spike' in the view statistics like in those videos I posted, and to top it off, Love Sosa and I Don't Like aren't available to view on mobile devices, which if you know anything about fake youtube views, you would know that mobile device views are the only avenue of views that can be faked (unless your talking views from facebook which is another less popular method).

YouTube cancels billions of video views after finding they had been 'faked by the music industry'

Major record labels collectively culled more than two billion video views

Biggest hit taken by Universal, which alone lost more than one billion

'This was an enforcement of our viewcount policy,' says YouTube
Major recording companies have lost more than two billion video views on YouTube after the video sharing website cracked down on alleged fake views.

The biggest hit was taken by Universal, home of Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber, which lost more than one billion views from its total of seven billion.
Sony was second hardest hit, with the label behind such stars as Alicia Keys, Rita Ora and Labrinth - and with which Simon Cowell has a close relationship - losing more than 850million views in a single day.

The viewcount culls will be damaging to the labels affected since YouTube is now the web's premier outlet for music videos. Over four billion hours of video are watched by over 800million unique visitors to the site each month.

The number of views attracted on YouTube are these days regarded as an unofficial worldwide popular music chart, and any suggestion that major labels are engaging in underhand tactics to increase their numbers could threaten the credibility of their artists.

YouTube viewer figures are doubly valuable to channel owners since it is also the primary way in which the site works out how to share its advertising revenue with partners.
The dramatic falls, highlighted by figures compiled by YouTube statistics analysts at SocialBlade, came after YouTube conducted an audit of its viewing figures aimed at combating black hat view count-building techniques.

This is when hackers artificially build up the numbers of views or likes on a YouTube video - enabling them to make clips appear far more popular than they really are and increase their exposure on the site.

The Daily Dot reported how many of the channels affected - which also include ones belonging to Michael Jackson, Chris Brown and Beyonce, among others - had also had many videos deleted.

Universal, which previously had dozens of clips on its YouTube channel, has had its offering slashed to just five - none of which are music videos or last more than about a minute and a half.

Sony's page was also left practically bare following the cull, with just three videos left.
im not mad at ya.....but this was already posted:

wiz and mac millers are authentic dude... they were grinding before majors, and mac is all alone getting millions of views. they used to do this on myspace all the time, a bunch of emo bands wound up getting pretty big from faking a lot of views and plays.... black veil brides stuck out as a weird band with too many fans that dont exist anywhere.

you know what though, if the music industry wanted, they could put youtube out of business by pooling funds and sparking up a new site or investing in a site such as "viemo"(sp?)
