Sheek aint gonna do good numbers, hes a street n*gga, they all is....but best believe they got respect from every hood.......i dont think 50 can say that
lol, sometimes you guys sound so pathetic, reread what you just said

D-block doesnt have as much street credit as they claim they do as well as everyone else say they do, just cause they say they are hard doesnt mean they are, dont believe everything you hear, oh yeah and BAHAHAHAH at sheek selling 18,000 or whatever the number is, if it wasnt for the beef with g-unit he would of got half the sales he did(white g-unit fans switched to d-block fans when they found out "how much harder and much more street credit" d-block has, and because currently its the "cool" thing to like d-block these days since they beef with 50 :rolleyes:). And all of a sudden, sheek is financially fine with 18,000 and d-block groupies are saying its not a flop, but yayo's gold album is a total flop and absolute failure

one more time to emphasize the point, the point of rapping in the mainstream is to make money, so no matter how many times d-block says they dont care about money and try to e-impress people with there "street credit", remember that they contradict themself anyway ("after taxes", "time is money", the "get money" single with jadakiss etc, I thought these guys dont care about the money )

it's funny cause he sold 36,000 and if he really does get $8 an album that's still almost $300,000 which is still a hell of alot better than most people

It's funny how people don't understand he doesn't get all that money. Beside the percent he gives to Koch he also gets an advance taken back and many other fees. So that 300,000 could end up around 50,000 if he is lucky. He could have done a lot better with all the sh*t he was talking. I'm so hood, I'm so hood, but my second single is a bi*ch song....

If you pull out a recoup amount he's still seeing upwards of 5 bucks a cd... through the advance/recoup amt.

After the recoup amt he's seeing somewhere around 6...

MOST indie acts with Koch are seeing around 25-35% on a CD Sale. So a CD sale at 13.99 (the wholesale being @ 10) he's seeing around 4-5 bucks.

Its still a lot more than the average artist's 80 cents - 2 dollars per cd.

Yeah but some people are being stupid. Selling 50,000+ records in a couple weeks without a super-mega label like Interscope or Universal behind you, when youre the "least" marketable, least talented member of a group that hasn't put out a group album in almost 7+ years... is a good move.
