      • sean_izzle

        what do you mean fool, omarion and lil bow wow is not from the south you ignorant fuck, Wu-Tang Clan had the best album and thats why its NYC to the fullest

    • NAWLEDGE

      homie, Im from the south and you just made us look fuckin ignorant. Birdman sucks balls and a TRUE hip hop fan knows it. He only does good sometime, but he cant even hold a lighter to Wu Tang. Alot of bullshit has come out the south this year and its not something to be proud of you dumb fuck. Stop repping the south with that gay ass name of yours!

  • NIG

    LOOK AT THOSE NUMBERS………THE INDUSTRY IS GOING DOWN HEAD FIRST….AND IT WILL DECLINE EVEN MORE NEXT YEAR……….

      LYRICAL GENIUS.

      AND THE CONCEPT WAS CRAZY AND REAL TALK.

      IT WAS KIND OF A DARK ALBUM WITH PURPOSE.

      IF YOU GO TO LUPEFIASCO.COM YOU CAN GET A REAL GRASP ON THE CONCEPT AND READ ABOUT THE GAME, THE STREETS, AND THE COOL.

      FOOD AND LIQUOR AND THE COOL ARE CONNECTED.

      IF YOU HAVE FOOD AND LIQUOR AND LET IT PLAY OUT AND LISTEN TO THE COOL YOU’LL SEE HOW.

  • http://xxlmag.com Mr. Flops

    1st…I really appreciate all of the flopping in the Hip-Hop World bc they are a cancer and negative re-enforcement of sterotypes that underminds the future intelligent minds of blacks who otherwise would look to real community superstars such as doctors, police chiefs, fire chiefs, school teachers, university professors and pharmacists like myself as role models…let the flopping continue…lets do away with all of this So-Called expression of Black Ghettos and reinvent our neighborhoods into desireable safe havens where education, safety and freedom are expectations instead of distant thoughts and dreams

    HipHop really is dead. *SMH*

  • Right

    Mr. Flops is somewhat correct. The glamorization of hip-hop fools does need to stop. However, there are good albums like Wyclef, Common, Lupe that can hopefully be successful and promote intelligence and good music.

  • one shot deal

    damn I bought the wu and beans albums they are both fire. Birdman and bow wow and omarion outsold them? I kinda expected that anyways since niggaz are always downloading. I downloaded that birdman and its really only a couple good songs and the rest is wack. I only buy albums that I know are going to be good like the wu and the freeway albums and I download the ones with songs I like but figure the rest of the album is garbage. LOL u fags will pay hundreds of dollars for tight ass jeans, shirts and gay ass skeleton hoodies but u cant afford 10-12 dollars for an album? LOL

    • nellz

      why pay for albums…when most of them are shit anyway?
      I only bought common, ye, lupe, talib, jay, gfk, and styles this yr. I kinda want my money back for the styles 1…i just assumed it was gonna be great…i didnt get 2 listen 2 beans yet…so ill decide if imma buy it or not yet.

    • Darkman

      yup thas all they do buy they fagget ass clothes an think they gangsta

      • PHURDRICK

        It’s a sad day in Hip-Hop, when Bow & Omarion can out sell Wu-Tang Clan!! But I can understand why their “Face Off” sold more. It’s because thy been marketing their cd everywhere!! How many times have they been on 106 this month? Plus how many little girls gonna have that cd in their Christmas stockings? The older Hip-Hop fans are the only ones buying cds!! While babyboomers only blogg and complain about everything!! Stop downloading from your friends or off the internet!! If you really care about hearing real Hip-Hop, you gotta go out and buy some cds!! Must I school you all to the fact that corporate America is stealing hip-hop from us!! Thy already stole jazz, rock, blues, Micheal Jackson and BET!! I can’t take anymore people!!!!!

  • KLETEWOOD

    a good album is one you just can’t stop listening to. a good beat is one that you feel and makes you want to blast that shit everyday.

    Now GOAT, SHEEP, or LAMB is not to be debated with what is currently out. I like all of Common’s music but he is never in the conversation.

    Its hard for me to believe that yall niggas think that even 90% of the music is even QUALITY MUSIC. Alicia Keys is killing all these rap niggas with her unit sales. Why are people buying her shit over Jay Z, 50, kanye, and the rest?

    Nigga Nigga Nigga can’t you see? We got 2 problems: (1) music is too easy to steal (2) Low Quality of music.

  • http://xxlmag.com Drugman

    These niggas need to stop hatin on the consumers…if ya want me to buy ya shit put it together good like ye did to where im anticipating the next song instead of ya watered down singles from the fuckin radio or the club…i dont wanna listen to 40 mins of fillers and two good songs.

  • The Real Deal

    Here’s the deal:

    Bow Wow and Omarion got the younger generation so they gonna sell. The same with Birdman because their songs to play in the clubs not the mention the help of Weezy.

    Wu didn’t sell cause how you expect someone to buy an album tha members of the crew don’t even like. Ghostface(who by the way got a classic album) and Raekwon are mainly the cause of that. But I’m not mad at them for thier opinion but it would have been smart to talk bout the album after it dropped.

    Gucci Mane? I’ve heard alot of people are disappointed with his project. One of my homies who is a big Gucci fan even said it was Garbage. If you gon be beefing with other artists that have platinum status I suggest you step your game up homie.

    Beans had no promotion and really isn’t an artist of this young generation. He’s too grimy. But to me the album is good.

    And yes Lupe’s album is CLASSIC. I agree with the fellas above. Go to his website if your lost to find out what the album is about.

  • JAY STONE

    Nobody’s buying albums because everyone wants to be rich-
    Rich is whats kool now-
    Being broke is now shunned upon-
    Why spend money on an artist that gets paid to tell you he is etting paid-
    The internet has nothing to do with whats coming out of these rappers mouths-
    50 Cent/Lil Wayne/ Jay Z have all given up way to much information, (along with magazines; XXL, The Source, Scratch, King, Kickz) on how the game works-
    Nobody believes these artist are doing what they do to take the ‘publics’ ,mind of the harsh reality’s of the “NOW” Society-
    “I’m rich, with lyrics thanks to you” find me in a Enzo, driving past you and that public elementary school”, why should I run out and buy a cd that in som many words states just that-
    The heads that are buying albums are a reflection of the amount of consumers that would really of bought albums 6-7 years ago-
    White America does not approve of thse “rappers” that are now making the same type of money they’re making, and teaching the young ones how to make it with out schooling, so they are not supporting Urban musick anymore, nor will they prolly ever again-
    Being thatwe are not “Brenda had a baby” type of Emcee’s anymore, we’re “Poppin Bottles” #1 on106 & park…-
    This shit frightens them, so now not supporting us, subconsciously makes them think, since Music, particularly rap, makes us “urban america” alot more money than the streets or these corporate jobs, let’s not invest in their music, and they will destroy each other trying to make the dollar that they(rappers) aren’t making anymore. Hence the fact every rapper in the game is Hood, street, and dangerous all over again; when just 5-8 years ago, we were talented Lyricist that could spit better than anyone on the block(right?)-
    “When I heard Who Shot Ya, I was like yo, call Clark up, I need to hit the studio and top that, he one up on me…” Jay Z 1998-

    I going to buy the Wu’s new cd. I won’t even download it. I’ll let all yall tell me how good it is. I did get the Beanie Sigel album. Its a good cd. But he’s worse cd of his career. Bow Wow & O will go gold soon. Its said but Bow Wow moves units. He got the little girls loving him. The Wu album sold 68,761 more copies than I thought they would.

  • Davon

    Shit is crazy right know. To me the way record sales are going is like a nightmare to me. I was hoping Wu-Tang would do over 100,000 units the first week but Omarion and Bow wow got it instead.(sigh)I’m not bunping them dudes but everybody should do at least 100,000 the first week. I don’t know whats going to happen to Hip Hop. As an aspiring rapper, I might as well no try to get a record deal and keep my music to myself since nobody is not buying records in the store. How the hell do they download it for free anyway?Limewire? Fuck that! I’m going to the stores!

  • http://www.myspace.com/thesabanrab The Sabanrab

    You niggas need to stop complaining about record sales and all that shit.Stop dowloading the songs and go buy the cds if yo support The Wu,Ghost,Beans and all these niggas.

    Fact is,it doesn’t matter wheather the music is from the west,south,north or East hip hop needs all these flavours i.e. different sounds from different regions that’s what keeps hip hop healthy.

  • DON’T QUIT YOUR DAY JOB!!!

    Just a word of advice…All you rapp’n Jigs with demos that are running around chasing labels trying to get in the industry, Hannah Montana is selling more than Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, T.I., 50 Cent, and Young Jeezy combined!

    Just some food for thought!

    IT’S OVER!!!

    let’s keep it real, down south music is horrible at best. record sales meaning nothing these days. think about it, there are tons of 7th graders ACTUALLY BUYING this crap. therefore, the 7th graders are more apt to purchase dumbed down easy to interpret music from the south i.e birdman, gucci, ……

    i can say that NOT ALL down south rappers suck but the majority of them do. suprisingly, the ones that can actually rap dont sell records either.

    Why the fuck are fans worried more about soundscans then the music now-a-days? Sales will never be the same. Fans will never be the same. They’re aren’t any loyal fans anymore. They go which ever way the wind blows. I’m from the south but i went out and copped Beans, Gucci, Birdman and Wu. My personal opion is that, out of the 4 Birdman had the better all around album. The sales reflected. You cant get mad @ that. Most people who are on here bitchin’ probably didn’t even go cop these albums. That goes back to what i said… Fans will never be the same. And everybody gettin on Bow Wow like you’ll niggas doin’ somethin’. That’s an example of a loyal fan base. Stop hatin’. Them nigga doin them. Try doin you’ll for a change.
