And also, will someone explain how Tha Carter 3 did a mill first week, then there was the huge drop off for Rebirth & IANAHB, and then the Tha Carter 4 did 960k first week after that "huge drop off"

Didn't he "flop" back then too? And magically become a superstar again a year later?

So everyone's going to pretend that Tha Carter 5 won't do like 400k first week?
Why 400k? Why not another 900k to a million?

Wayne fans losing more and more confidence by the day

Jigga had just dissed Birdman on H.A.M

Then WTT went #1 in 23 different countries the week of its release (Even being a digital only release for the majority of it's first week out)

Wayne and Birdman had something to prove with Carter IV...

If you remember, Waynes original projection was 650-700k (roughly about 300k short of his Carter III mark)

All of a sudden soon as word got out.. 2 days later, the projection jumps to being right on par with Carter III



If you follow projections.. You know that type of sh*t just does not happen... n*ggas don't just jump 300k in sales..

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..

i honestly believe to the fullest that the label bought 90% of the 1st week copies for carter 3 and 4 to make wayne look like a bigger star than really he is.

and 100-200k is about what his REAL fan base has always been.

just look at his numbers from all his other albums (including carter 2).

even the first carter did like 140k it's first week.

Tired of reading the Rebirth/I Am Not A Human Being excuse and since people asked for an explanation as to why, here it is. Rebirth was an actual side project, Wayne fans throw those words around without really knowing what they mean. A side project means the musician is doing something totally different than usual, and is risking alienating their core audience. A rock album from one of the most popular rappers out qualifies under that criteria. I Am Not A Human Being was put out without Wayne there to promote it, and with everyone basically saying 'hold this until C4'. There weren't even physical copies in stores until the 2nd week. It was released as a cash grab, to hold audiences over.

I don't hate Wayne, I loved his stuff, starting with the Sqad Up tapes all the way up through No Ceilings. His music just hasn't had that same spark over the past few years, but if you read my posts on here, I give him credit where it's due. But, I follow rap just like I would sports, and record sales are the closest thing to stats that we have. A new Lil' Wayne album is a new Lil' Wayne album regardless of what the title is, and this was clearly put out as a brand new Lil' Wayne album, with all new songs, big name guest stars, and heavy promotion. Like an earlier poster stated, if Jay-Z doesn't call an album Blueprint and it doesn't sell, does he get this kind of pass?

Wayne fans loved whipping record sales in people's faces all these years and I simply find it humorous that not one of them posted up and said the album was a banger or that it was quality, regardless, they just went right back to record sales.

I agree that all this side project stuff is bs.. a wayne album is a wayne album period.

Carter 3 +4
Rebirth
IANAHB 1 + 2

All have range from average to trash.

His "run" is based off show stealing feature hot songs that leaked off c3 in 07, building his brand 'young money' &

Anytime you need to name your album a certain way to tell records, you suck as an artist and this shows the level of respect your fanbase has for said artist
