At n*ggas saying those are low numbers. Name another rapper that dropped an album in 1996 that's still doing numbers in 2013.

Being that he gave 1 million copies away, you really can't compare these numbers to any other Jay-Z album. Not everyone can sale 968,000 in week one like Timberlake...
Don't matter if he gave away 1 million or 5 million downloads for free, that doesn't mean those people would have paid for the album. People are quick to take freebies.

Jayz as far as a mainstream rapper is on the decline, again I think he suffers from Kanye effect, a rapper way past his glory days, musically putting out trash and lives off gimmicks and celebrity.

Its a new era and its all about the music and not the advertisements and projection screens over Egypt. Artists like J Cole, K Dot and Drake are on to a winner, once they reach that official household name status their sales will further increase.

Kanye pushing out trash and damaging his own brand, you can go from being god like status to bum status overnight, look at Wyclef

Just shut up, please. His highest first week sales were the 557,789 copies he sold of his Dynasty album.

These first week sales are near identical to The Blueprint and The Black Album you ignoramus.

Kanye is no where near Jay'z level status wise. I wasn't defending him either, because it can go either way. They may have paid for a retail copy, they may have not --- I'm just saying that's something you have to consider. Some people feel like they bought a copy because they bought the Galaxy phone, some people will still want to go out and buy a physical copy. I'm not a huge Jay fan so I have no reason to defend him.

Kanye is on the same level as Jay status wise, he is part of his circle, they make joint albums together.

As much as I dislike Kanye now, he is a household name, constantly in the media, a lot to do with his relationship to Kim K, similar to Jayz relationship to Beyoncé. When ur other half is more famous than you, it will raise ur profile to newer heights and take u over toa new crowd who don't fu*k with rap music.

There are only like 4 or 5 rappers alive who are on next level status, Jay, Kanye, Snoop, Em and Weezy

If I had a Galaxy phone and a free download was offered to me, I wud have checked it, just off the strength of Jayz name, but I damn sure wud never have copped it, given his recent track record of weed plates.

Like i said dudes is on their last legs, selling off their brand, celebrity and relationships, whereas rappers like J Cole, K Dot and Drake let the music talk.

Its a new era the old men are on the decline, unless there is a real improvement in the music, the more trash they put out the more they hurt their musical expectations

Jay-Z has historically dropped anywhere from 300-400k first week. Kingdom Come was his highest first week at 600k. His numbers have increased now compared to his earlier years.

This, in tandem with the Samsung deal is quite insane.
