Cam dropped one thing and picked up another. He dropped is skills on the mic and picked up a hustla marketing brain. So no one can be mad at that in the least bit, hes a business man more than a actual artist.

114 X 8= Doesn't matter because he still has to pay people, Indie means more work and Cam has a big team that depends soley on him. That's allot of mouths to feed and none of them carry his last name.

These kids dont know the politics behind all this sh*t....

114,000 units =$684,000 at $6 a unit. Not bad for a week. They did have a promo/video to go wit it, the video had 2 singles Touch it or not/Wet wipes. I like both songs, but the album's weak.

yall kids caught up in the numbers hype for real. 100 thousand is very respectable numbers. everybody dont come out and do 300 400 thousand unless you a major artist who appeals to more than a cult following. the problem is not him doing 100 thousand the first week its how much he will sale in the subseqent weeks that will tell the story. cam is not making 8 bucks an album by and stretch of the imagination on atlantic. for one he gotta pretty nice advance when he signed with atlantic. all that has to be recouped. if they gave him 10 million he in debt to the label until he generates 10 million for them. and he wont do it off this album this album will top out at maybe 600 thousand. and by the way i like cam i just dont think there is real quality control with the dipset fam everything is to repetitive from them these days. similiar beats similiar topics its getting repetitive and its showing in sales. yeah cam gotta nice gold fan base but he not doing nothing original to surpass that base. when he did come home with me things like oh boy was original at the time somewhat and it made people beyond the typical fan base buy. to me i dont think he will surpass the numbers of come home with me cause i personally dont think the hunger is there like when he got with the roc. he records 100 songs and pics 18 for an album.

if you people think he gets $8.00 for each cd you are hallucinating. mariah carey, prince, janet jackson, micheal jackson, U2 don't even get that and they have record sells out the roof. you people need to stop taking whatever these rappers say and running with it. there is no record company in the world who is gonna give a mediocre artist as camron 8.00 a cd............lets get real

its not about second week sales when your established artist...its about keeping those numbers nice for when you negotiatie new deals....thats the real hustle...cam out here pimpin these labels for one album deals and getting his cash .....unless your new and do more than 2 million nowadays you cant really be considered a superstar.....i think its a good look for underground hip-hop....basically peopel who dont conform to commerical standards...even people that dont respect cam lyrics can respect that

$8 an album is possible and I'll tell you why:

Most artists are signed to record labels and give up their rights to ever perform independently and keep all of the revenue. If Mariah Carey wanted to sing at some kids birthday for $100, the record company would keep a portion of that because they have the power to extend the contract indefinitely.
Cam'ron has a very different situation and he can thank Un, the n*gga whom Jigga stabbed, for that. Right after he dropped his first album on Un's label. The label folded, he was a free agent.
His second album was on Sony and he was under the wing of violator management. He also managed to leave the label without relinquishing his rights to 100% of his revenues indefinitely (key word being indefinitely). Once again Cam was a free agent.
Third album, platinum. The Rocafella marketing effort secured the deal.
The fourth album, Rocafella refused to market it. Still went gold cus Cam a reall n*gga. The Roc crumbled. Once again, retaining all his rights Cam left. He left the entire Universal fold and went to Warner. Cam was a free agent.
Fifth album, 100,000 first week. More promotion could help it go platinum but that is besides the point. THE MAIN POINT IS THIS:

your average artist must sell 500K minimum because the record company is finacing the entire release. In the case of Cam, he is financing a larger share and is outsourcing services, namely production. Cam can do the marketing alone and has managed to do so without spending a fortune like most artists.

Hospital costs from getting shot: $15,000
Cost to make k*lla Season the movie: $10,000
Cost to make dozens of mixtapes: $10,000

1st week revenues [radically conservative estimate] (2.99 * 114 = $340,000)

Mobb Deep spent a fortune trying to get on.

Cam'ron spent nothing and is caking off.

dissing Jay-Z, Promoting the movie and album, mixtapes pushing his singles, along with the radio, c'mon not hating on the album but don't act like it dropped out the blue and did these number, there was a marketing gimmik behid this, believe, funny how people think people do good numbers with no promotion. Cam just got a good Marketing team. Funny that it is compared to his first Roc-a-Fella album.

right^

everybody's 2nd week has a decrease by at least 25%... and since cam has no real hit songs out.. he'll be pushing like 70-80k by next week
You sure about that....take a look at this: #2/CAM'RON/KILLA SEASON/113,608/999/1,274/114,890


Thats a 85% decrease. Guess everybody who was gonna get it bought it the first week
