when's the last time a million people "went out" and bought an album? A million people might have paid for it, but they didn't go out anywhere. THey bought your sh*t on their phone.

I agree with most of what LL was saying except for the album not touching a million people. I'm sure most of the Galaxy users accepted the app to download the album.

Then again, I agree with soundscan that this shouldn't count as a million sales b/c this was Samsung paying to promote the galaxy and not really a million album sales.

20 million people downloaded the MCHG app, so I'm calling bullsh*t on "touching the people". And he sold 500k+ physical copies on top of that I don't think LL was direspectful in what he said, but I don't think his argument was very well thought out. Jay's touched way more people with this than LL could even dream of doing in 2013

Wow how the hell do numbers get so fu*ked up?

1.2/1.3 million people downloaded the app. There were 20 million hits.

What LL said was respectable. But he sold the record to a company who distributed the album for "free" to their customers. So yeah, it did get to a million people.

They may have not went out and bought it, but it's 2013.

I get what LL's trying to say, but if the deal never happened and Hov did everything else (game 5 commercial, etc etc) he still would've moved his 500 thousand units so it's not like Jay pulled some trick out of his a.ss and "magically" did numbers because he would've moved units regardless.

At the end of the day, the winner is Hov.

Anyone that is calling LL a hater or salty is not very intelligent. He was asked a question and answered it. Point blank period. There was no hate or animosity.

Kudos to Jay for making a good business move. Hip Hop/Rap is all about money over actual content anyway these days.

Why do people have to hate on LL, he said his opinion. You can either agree or disagree with it. Character attacks make you seem like an emotional bi*ch.

Didn't Jay sell 500,000 his first week in addition to the million?

Did LL get 20,000 people to buy his last album

Jay got a sweet deal with Samsung...that is the great business side of Jay showing through...I think it'll be a big feat to giveaway a mil and sell another mil the old fashion way. More artist should follow his lead with the marketing of the album.

wait so it counted as a million sales because a million people downloaded it for free via the app? that doesn't make any sense at all.
