nobody getting 8 dollars off an album. u guys are crazy yeah he independant but 8 dollars is od. how the ef the artist getting paid 8 dollars an album. who paying to ship the albums, what profit is the wholesale company making, what profit is the retails selling? retails sells cd like 10 dollars nowadays. so u saying it costs koch 2 dollars ship to companys, etc. nooooo. plus theres a reason y u make more money off an album sold when u independant. u gotta pay for promoting and ish. anybody see the real life of rappers couple years back on mtv. when dame dash broke down how much an artist makes? after paying the company back they still turned broke. 500k is nothing u gonna kiss all that money in no time. saying u sold 100k even u independant dont mean nothing. u stil broke. so its equivalent b/w independant n when u on a real label. unless u dont wanna waste money on promoting which is a must

i guess u d!ckheads dont count overseas sales in dont think that usa is the only place where peeps be buying hiphop cds, now a cd might sell 4 $12 in the us and that but places like here in australia u wont pay less then $25 for a cd so im sure they could pay an artist $8 and still make money i really doubt that they get paid $8 more like $5 per which is still better then .33c u do the maths i know which one i'd prefer. it sux that cats like sheek cant eat i bout this cd i thought it was ok not as good as his last album but still good i dont understand how downsouth cats like mike jones j kwon sell so many cds u new yorkers gotta start supportin ya artists and help these cats eat otherwise u will find em not releasin sh*t no more

187,000 is worlwide sales. 36,000 is just U.S. sales
Where you get this info from? I don't understand how he could only move 36k here yet 187k worldwide. Thenagain, I'm sure the U.S. is the worst nation in the world with bootlegging its artists, so I wouldn't be surprised really.

36K x $8 >>>> 300K x $0.33

That's not flopping.
Almost no artist gets as low as 33 cents an album. If you said 55-67 cents, that would've sounded a lot more reasonable, and that's going low.

man you guys mustve all been on the same short bus thinkin this guy gettin 8 bucks an album. at that rate the stores, distributors and labels would be getting nothing.
Word, I don't understand how he could get 8 an album. The stores get a couple bucks per album I'm sure, then distribution has to get something. Factoring that in alone there's no way he could get 8 bucks an album. That's what Cam said he was getting one time on Rap City, but I'm guessing he was exaggerating.

did it get distributed to europe? because, i haven't even seen it here yet. to get it down here, you'd request it; get a special import.

Yeah they sell it in Europe. We get Cds before you. I think Australia is like the last to get cds after they drop.

Yo all of you thats saying he flopped he aint got to sell a million copies on a indy label. If you don't know the industry dont speak. He could sell 100'000 copies and eat good on a indy because he aint got all the middle men gettin they share before he even eats off dat. So much d!ck riding going on all of you thats on 50 d!ck your helping the bs thats bringing hip hop down.And Let me end it wit this real hip hop has never been about sales its droppin hot tracks so get off the number game. And open your ears and listen to the real emcees droppin not the actors ina booth you keep supporting.
