Iono, to me, kinda crazy when people say these 2 in particular are one of the greatest MC's of all time, you'd think their albums would be in the high muiltiples of millions

Here we go again. You are saying that you expect the greatest to be hailed by all of America? You know damn well that America doesn't hail real hip-hop music. They hail what rap has brought to the pop culture.

So you say that to be the greatest you have to sell millions upon millions?
I think he's more or less trying to imply what they deserve, and that they fail to receive the sales that they deserve to have.

when its a double disc doesnt it count as selling 2?...so i s that 464 double or 464 has already been doubled....know what im tryin to say...just curious
Usually, but it has to be over a cetain time aswell. Like for instance it might have to be 2cd and 100 minutes longs, whereas nas' was below the time, which makes sense, because the first time i listened to the cd, i was like wtf im sure this could nearly fit on 1 cd.

Exaclty....but you gotta consider tha folks that only buy bootlegs...not only tha folks that are too cheap to buy their own but the broke ones with five dollars not fifteen that buy bootlegs. I know a lot of people with the bootlegs of most of these CDs. My sister almost bought all of them. I know I downloaded some of them myself so there goes a few sells out the window. NOw think about all the folks that my situation applies to and it's like 50/50 half buying retail and half downloading. Might be even more downloading but sh*t I ain't do any research.
glad you made that point, especially the albums released in the 90's before computer downloading took over. n*ggas was copping bootlegs off the streets and getting dubs from their friends. those numbers dosen't reflect how many people have their albums, just who actually PAID for them.

and plus a successful hip hop album was never considered successful or a dissapointment because of sound scan sales. since when did we became so obessed with "first week numbers" anyway?

lol at nas street disciple, Street's Disciple/464,522/2004. that trash didn't even go gold.



Those Numbers was as of January '05. Streets' Disciple came out on November 30th, 2005. So by now he should be plat. Without the bubble yum rap that you care about.

Street's Disciple/464,522/2004

am i the only 1 who thought this album deserved a platinum plaque
nope. it was a very nice cd, but i think if it was just the first disk, it would have atleast gone platnium cause just a moment was getting spins hard. many people didn't like the second disk. i didn't at first, but now after a few spins, i understand it. many people hate that real rap and he took a risk putting a record like that out. props to nas for taking a risk...

Nas is a top three artist of mine and I only (technically) bought his SD album. So sales don't mean sh*t. Artist don't even make most of their money off sales do they? I'm sure Nas got more money from me buying his concert ticket than he did coping his album. So I say let me bootleg your sh*t so when you come to town I can afford to help sell out the building for you.
