If this was independent, he put like $50 g's in his pocket

When's the last time any of your made $50g's working for yourself and doing what your passion is?
Word, n*ggas don't realize there was not really a middle man on this. So all the money made he gets it. After Itunes and Amazon get's their cut. As well as his indie label that would get their small percentage.

He making a good bit though! Enough to pay his bills, not ball. But that mortgage will get paid for the year.

selling 5,000 copies is considered a success to me considering pap's buzz flew out the window ever since 2008.

and YOU don't realize that "middle man" or not, the studio, features, beats, small a.ss promotion, time, videos, packaging, distribution, manager, etc aren't free either. you n*ggas can't be dumb enough to think he gets 100% of this "50k" of that, it probably put him in debt to release it you're also leaving out the fact it took him 10 years to make this. he "made 50k" in 10 years smarten up nas

First, Kelis dropped an album and sold 7,500 copies. Then I find out that Chingy just came out with an album, and it sold 683 copies.

*blinks*
*stares*

683 COPIES. That wasn’t a typo. There wasn’t a 0 missing. It just wasn’t there. 683 CDs??? That’s all you gon sell? #NoShade my dude, but 683 album sales? Was it only released in Iowa? What happened? You can tell a G. (-__-)

i sold over 500 copies of my sh*t back in the day thats pretty bad knowing all these dues once had national even international exposure!!!

Not bad for an album that DIDN'T crack the top 200.

Maybe he'll push a good 10,000, or 15,000 in sales. long as he do some shows and tour for the album, he'll be fine independently and show wise.

if you was really his man, why couldn't you look out for him and be straight up an tell'em the album was garbage, that single with Remy was so unimaginably terrible. That its 2013, those tracks with Jada, Jim Jones, and Mobb Deep wasn't going to do anything at all today. Law Library has no replay value, it's just a one listen track.

This album is definitely history, cause no ones banging it after the first one or two listens
