Damn...it's quite clear now how easy it is for people to be brainwashed...

Especially if they think Hov is the reason behind this success... :banghead:

Not hating on the cat...just speaking the real...

Jay-Z had nothing to do with the Mariah Carey album. I thought Jay-Z oversaw the rap artist and roc-a-fella. Def Jam isn't letting Jay-Z oversee somebody as big as Mariah. She was official before Jay took over. Young Jeezy did 85,000 and Teairra Mari did 68,777. That''s nothing to brag about because the numbers only go down but Mariah been out for a minute and she pushed 99,000. Being on Def Jam will automatically get you a top 5 spot for first weeks sales. And getting 3 spots in the top 5 with those numbers tell oyu off hand there was no competition.

He can't get his artists to gold even, except for carey. Meanwhile 50 is pushing artists to 2-4x plat. Jay-Z is the man though but he's got some bullsh*t artists and wack promotion campaigns going on. No buzz

Jay-Z gets no props for Jezzy or Mariah he isn't the executive producer of either. LA REID IS!!!!

Jezzy will not leave Def Jam, he's one of their hottests artists right now.

sh*t, Mariah had nothin really to do with Jay, LA Reid deals with Def Soul, so give props to him, he gave the approval for all the past Outkast and Usher albums. Tiarra Marie, sh*t i picked her album up cuz it was $6, who wouldn't? that's a fu*kin deal for a cd, so no wonder it moved units, once the price goes up, they'll see a HUGE difference. It has a been a weak summer anyways.....album wise. YOung Jeezy, i haven't scooped it up yet, i'm not sure i'm if i'm feelin him yellin "...YEAH..." after every other bar....

Another thing people are forgetting is Jay didn't sign T Mari, Reid did.

Jay-Z is definitely a powerhouse and he knows how to run a music company... He built Roc-A-Fella from the ground up on drug money. Just imagine what he can do with the sh*t load of money that Def Jam has.

out of those three albums in the top five, the only one that sean carter has had direct input with was the that young tender teaiarra (sp?) everyone else's albums were already planned and tracked before he came on board, funny how quick people forget about bleek, young gunz, and that buddens aftermath, as far as rap goes, you can bet hes leaning on k. west for a strong debut

You know Mariah gon sell, Jeezy blew up due to Boyz in the Hood and T.I. and Tear... that bi*ch look good and the whole roc crew was in her vid, thats enough for it to sell. I'll give him 1 out of 3, but that bi*ch's cd is trash after the single. Now he pushing dudes like Aztec while X and Budden get 0 promotion....smh... get the fu*k outta here..
