Like Father, Like Son had exactly one single that got heavy promo, and it wasn't even serviced to pop radio, it managed to cross over on its own. It still did 176K first week and ended up somewhere around 600-700K. Mind you, that album was released after The Carter II, and well before The Carter III. Eminem's collab album with Royce did about the same numbers.

The first installment of I Am Not A Human Being was essentially just tossed out during his jail time, even Drake didn't do much to promote it, saying he felt Wayne had much better music in the stash.

This album is completely different, and the elephant in the room that no Wayne fan will touch is that this is an all rap LP. That's why you see the decrease in record sales. This is honest to goodness the best rap album Wayne has in him right now. Maybe he comes back with another Lollipop or How To Love for C5, but that would simply prove my point. Wayne fans also like to forget how long it took him to put out C3 and C4, and that a series of singles for each flopped around, and didn't get the album in stores until he stepped outside of rap. When Eminem does it (circumvents traditional rap fans to get sales), he's a sellout, who shouldn't get respect in the hip-hop community, but when Wayne does it, he's a genius.

It's hilarious that you not only hate Jay, but on the flipside you're a Young Money Stan to top it off...

Miss me with that sh*t Stanley Carter I be going in on Weezy, the only reason u hate Wayne is because he took a sh*t on Jayz. When Jayz and Wayne were lickin each others balls back in the day, you were on Lil Waynes d!ck, same way u were sucking Dames d!ck when he was cool with Jay

You on some female bi*ch sh*t, dudes cross ur idol and u feel like u have to hate them too, das some wild boy sh*t

What's crazy is that all of his singles were hits and he still couldn't make it at least Gold. There's a weird drop off between Tha Carters and these other albums. Maybe he needs those R&B/Pop singles like How To Love and Lollipop.

How many of Waynes albums have gone gold in the first week though?

I don't hate Wayne, I'm just stating facts. And I'd like to know where you got your numbers on The Leak from, it actually sold 2,401 copies 1st week. Link if you don't believe me:



There are massive holes in your logic. He wasn't doing millions until C3 dropped. We Are Young Money was a crew album, which traditionally don't sell as much as solo albums. Rebirth was an actual side project, that's an album that would actually fall under that excuse. The first I Am Not A Human Being was barely promoted, and hard copies weren't even serviced the first week. C4 did its numbers, but there really is no reason for such a steep drop off between that album and this one other than lack of fan interest, no pop single, and a decline in the quality of his music. Add those 3 factors together and there's your answer. You don't put out 3-4 singles, and call Future and Drake to be on your single for a side project.

really guy? he had a sh*t ton of videos from the first IANAHB. His songs were still going number one (remember Right Above It ft/Drake) he was still everywhere.

nobody bought the album because it wasnt a "Carter"

another example is Like Father Like Son, he wasn't in prison, he promoted it, but it didnt do Carter numbers either...
you like b00ty hole. shut your f*ggot a.ss up.

It's funny.. Wayne stans get excuses that no other fans of top level rappers get..


Let Jigga drop and album and sell 150 or 200k first week.. First page would EXPLODE with "Jigga is over" "Jigga trash now" threads


But it's Wayne so n*ggas is like

"but bu bu It's not a Carter album"


Jigga don't need to name every album "Blueprint" for it to go platinum..

Even Kanye's out of canon 808's album sold 450k first week and is currently at 1.7 mil..


Wayne still struggling for his albums to go gold, and thats okay.. But for artists like Jigga and Ye, its Platinum or bust


n*ggas is too funny man..

Actually those numbers are great

Over 200k, sold more than I Am Not a Human Being and Ribirth

How many artists 10 plus years in the game still shifting units the same as new artist who are poppin rite now.
Bro I know you wanna try and spin it for the sake of it being a message board argument....but trust me, this is bad.

Its like a 78% drop off compared to his last project

Wayne is Wayne. I dont care if he names the discs different, HES STILL LIL WAYNE. If he had done atleast 450-550K then I'd say 'Yeah the markets a little dry'

But with no other major rap releases out, and pretty much just Justin Timberlake to compete with? This is horrible, he literally had the entire urban market to himself last week.


Stop making excuses

Edited to say:
The fact that he couldn't even debut at #1 is hysterical. Its no do-overs on that sh*t, this is real bad.

Im willing to bet they push up Nicki and Drakes next project now and Universal forces the ads for those to go even harder to move people right off this one.

Its hilarious how Wayne fans can't admit the guy put up a dud.

He had everything with this one except a pop song to fall back on in case he really wanted the 16 year old white girl audience.

White people buy about 82-84% of ALL urban music right now....Wayne just had almost an 80% drop off when he puts out an album thats ALL RAP....This should tell you all whose really buying his albums.

This is Lil Waynes Carter Fanbase

Unfortunately those little white girls outnumber y'all f*ggot n*ggas


Edited to say: Its amazing how Nickis high school video and Drakes 5am in Toronto video drop right when the news of the flop should be hitting the blogs
