    • DevilintheFlesh

      If we did the math does 2 mil in 2008 = Diamond in 1998-2003?

      • http://www.asdf.com Hey

        Sounds about right to me. That still doesn’t take away the fact that G-Unit flopped horribly.

      • squadwildin

        No you fuckin idiot…diamond is diamond and 2x platinum is exactly what the fuck it is. Ya’ll lil wayne cock suckers always tryin to compensate for his shit.

  • Pierzy

    In 1999 or 2003, if someone told you that the young dude from “Back That Azz Up” would be the biggest selling rap artist in 2008 while NaS would be #8 in his 2nd week and G-Unit would struggle to get to 200K, you wouldn’t believe it…

  • solo

    u spell tongue like this…..T-O-N-G-U-E….. how long did it take for u to come up with that lame flow?

  • NIG

GET LOST 4 A FEW YEARS AND ACT IN MOVIES……..AND I SAY AGAIN EMENIM IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE OVER JAY ANG WYANE……..

  • stuckfresh

    Go get that A.B.N!!!! Ashole by nature!!! The whole album rock!!

  • Michael

    Nas should only release albums in December, at least he’s gauranteed gold then. Otherwise without a big single he’ll do koch numbers.

  • fireforreal

    Clever ? Never. You must be like Rev runs age or a 9 year old just writing your first rhyme.

  • Peru

    No 2 million DOES NOT equal diamond!!! 2 million is 2 million, its double platinum. Niggas wasnt rich back in the day but still bought albums cuz they didnt have the technology to bootleg like they do now, had they had the technology album sales would have been similiar to today’s climate so stop making excuses for bad album sales. Remember when the Backstreet Boys and Nsync would sell 8 million its their 1st weeks??? I bet they would still do those type of numbers because of their target audience…2 MILLION IS 2 MILLION!!!

    • DevilintheFlesh

      This is the stupidest shit I have ever read.

  • profhit3

    @ Peru ..man you contradicting yourself because first said that “niggas … still bought albums cuz they didn’t have the technology” then you turn and say that “2 MILLION IS 2 MILLION” WRONG because today’s technology is what makes it different. And I doubt that “out-of-sync” or the “wackstreet boys” would sell the same in todays climate and economy.

    • Justice4all

      brothers don’t buy albums. Plus, Why does XXL have that dumb spam protection? You put the right answer in, then it says you are wrong….

      • YO

        LEARN HOW TO ADD ASSHOLE!

  • Peru

    How did I contradict myself?? I said if the technology would have been as advanced back in the day as it is now niggas wouldn’t have sold shit back in the day either, but since the tech wasn’t at today’s standard niggas sold 5 to 10 million as a great rapper, 3 to 4 million as a good rapper, and 1 to 2 million as an ok rapper bacause the fans had no other choice than actually buying the album to get the material. So technology fucked up the sales game and I’m not saying Wayne’s numbers aren’t good in today’s climate cuz they are but 2 million is 2 million!!! Not Diamond(10 million), its 2 million!!! Wayne’s album has done what no artist has been able to do for 3yrs since 50 did it in 05′ but its still 2 MILLION, nothing more nothing less. And I bet them boy bands would still be selling sick numbers BECAUSE OF THEIR TARGET AUDIENCE OF WHITE GIRLS FROM 9-16 YRS OLD that wouldn’t dream of doing something illegal such as piracy…

  • BIG ROB

    Artists are only selling 2 mill because they are wack. If Biggie or Pac was here making classics they would be going triple plat. Nas & Jay aint making classics anymore, Lil Waynes album is not the equivelent to “ready to die”. Blame it on downloading all you want, but when was the last time you herd an artist that amped you the way BIGGIE, NAS, Jay or Em used to… rap is falling off and will die if someone doesnt save it.

    Ofcourse downloading dosent help but true fans still buy albums.

    You cant have true fans if you are not a true artist.

    One!

    • DevilintheFlesh

      Yall are fucking idiots. Ain’t Nobody going Diamond or anywhere close to diamond. It isn’t the music that has fallen off, it is the fact that people can download the shit for FREE! I still haven’t bought a copy of Carter 3.

  • http://mozillafirefox li pupu

    damn 50 yawl ass is ASS, done, kaput , finished all that shit. talk that shit if yawl want 2 but plies close 2 GOLD status i’ll take that over them other numbers anyday. damn hell rell yo shit went rubber(5000 units). something i’ve been saying all along when niggas get to talking that real hip hop shit and talking about lyrics and shit what up wit NAS(and i went to the store and bought it) but damn his shit aint really sellin. lyrical niggas dont get no sales or spins bcause dont nobody understand what the fuck they saying. i’m not saying simplify yo shit but wit the landscape of things some niggas might have to change up. talk bout the south if yawl want 2 but we making hits our shit is straight and 2 the point. if that shit bump in the club and in the trunk yo shit getting some spins down here. we party down here. take it how you wanna but thats just how shit is

  • Stylee

    Other then Nas-all I got to say is that we got some WACK fuckin rappers movin units. It’s still a mystery to me why people think weezy’s hot, and plies? That brotha ain’t got an ounce of talent….Is there ever going to come a time where REAL emcees and poets who actually have lyrical talent and substance in their music, move units again?????

  • http://mozillafirefox li pupu

    • YO

      KANYE CAN

  • Peru

    Big Rob got a point, aint no fresh shit being put out no more. aint shit new, aint nothing a nigga aint never done before being done. The whole rap game is BORING. I think thats why Soulja Boy blew up like that, he got kids excitied, he entertained. Biggie and Pac were able to entertain as well as be some serious lyricist. The West Coast East Coast beef made them iconic! But them niggas is dead and aint never coming back, niggas need to realize that and move one cuz if we continue to look for niggas to replace them the whole Genre will lay next to them in their graves. WE NEED NEW, WE NEED FRESH, WE NEED HIP HOP!!!

    • DevilintheFlesh

      If Pac and Biggie were alive today they wouldn’t be near the icons that they are as dead men. They would be suffering the effects of the internet just like everyone else.
