thats like a kid having a bake sale and his/her parents buy it all what was the purpose might as well of just asked for some money

im not sure if you are a jay-z fan or not because i don't follow your posts but this is exactly what it is....



this is like fixing a f!ght.
No bruh. A kid has a bake sale, one person slides through and cops all his goods. Then that person wants to promote his/her own sh*t and gives those baked goods away for free as a promotion.

Whether you sell a million albums to a million people or a million albums to one person it's still a milli. Jay won bruh.

Me personally there is nothing wrong with him getting that RIAA award for the simple fact is that it was a transaction between a brand(Jay-Z), and a consumer(Samsung), just on a larger scale. Plus people tend to ignore the fact that if the downloads matched the amount of the albums sold then it's still a legit transaction between Samsung basically became a vendor for the album digitally.

I'd love to see Em do that today in this market. Not saying he cant but if he did I'd respect his sales still. I dont understand how people can hate on this. It's something no one else was doing.

You got people in here acting like record sales is the Vince Lombardi or something. The only reason record sales should matter to the fan is knowing that the artists label will continue to push their music with solid numbers sold. THATS IT!

Let n*ggas shine

dude what are you talking about... he sold 1 million copies because samsung bought them and told samsung users they can download the album free.. Thats not a big deal.. You think if Apple made a partnership with Eminem to download his next album free that 2 million people wont download it..

People will download anything..

I downloaded WALE's bullsh*t... because it was free..

just like samsung users downloaded jayz bullsh*t... because it was free.

On those 2 albums 1.8 and 1.3 million people went to stores and put money in the cashiers hand for the album... Cold hard cash over a free download... who won?
and if eminem did that what would be your problem with it?

Did I say I had a problem with Jay-Z making 5 million dollars before his album was sold in stores?

NO!

I'm just saying stop acting like the n*gga did something special..
thats why i asked the damn question

if n*ggas want to think he did something special, let em. you dont care about one thing but you care about this? you in here acting like you care (which is why again, i asked)

by the way what em did was pretty fu*king special too, dont know why you feel the need to compare

I respect Jay for making money on this sh*t but man getting recognized for shipping a million copies by the RIAA isn't fair. So you mean to tell me that if I go to McDonalds and sell them 1million copies of my album and have them give them out to every person who purchases something from the dollar menu, I get a platinum plaque too. :lebroncmonson:

no you idiot. how is your vision so narrow.

A parent buying everything from a kids bake sale is the same as a label buying all the albums. Do you know why? because the parents invested in the bake sale so they are LOSING MONEY, but they do this to make the kid feel good, just as a label would do to try and increase an artists popularity

Samsung buying albums is like the local bakery buying all the baked goods from the kid to give out for free as a promotion. and in this case the kid MADE MONEY.

but think about it, why would any company buy in bulk, would they do the same with talib kweli?, would they do the same deal with meek mill? You have to have a certain appeal or be on a certain level for an EXTERNAL body to buy this many albums.

Yes, they're using Jay as a promotional tool, but they are still customers. Which is very different from a parent because Samsung had no involvement in creating the product. you fu*k wit
