Lil Wayne vs. Every Other Rapper: The SoundScan Showdown

Say what you will about Lil Wayne’s fashion sense, but when it comes to bringing consumers out to stores, Weezy F. Baby never disappoints. Between 2008’s Tha Carter III and his Tha Carter IV follow-up, which dropped last week, the Young Money captain always seems to sling the most CDs. Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I., 50 Cent eat your heart, Wayne is undeniably the king of first-week sales in hip-hop. Don’t believe it, check the chart. As Young Money president Mack Maine said on Twitter, “A old head once said…..‘Men lie women lie numbers don’t (sic).’ —Jesse Gissen
