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.

Jay-z had nothing to do with Mariah's cd doing as well as it did...that was all Jermain Dupree....and since when is selling 67,000 copies good....this cd will never touch gold....nothing that jay-z touches other than himself touches gold or plat...wake up
