Lil Wayne Closes In On 2.5 Milli Sold

If Lil Wayne keeps it up, he might have to cut another remix: “A Trill.”

The Cash Money star keeps powering his way through the charts. The rapper’s album, Tha Carter III, sold another 35,000 to land at number 11 on the Billboard 200 and inch closer to 2.5 million copies sold. After press time, his 16-week total is comfortably at 2.4 million.

Young Jeezy is the only rapper in the Top 10. Da Snowman sold 40,000 copies of The Recession to land at number nine. His four-week total is 450,000 copies.

The Game is sitting just outside the Top 10 at number 14. The Compton MC sold 29,000 copies of L.A.X. to push his five-week total to 448,000 copies.

Albums by DJ Khaled and LL Cool J saw their sales figures drop in their second and third weeks, respectively. Khaled’s We Global declined by 63 percent as he went from opening sales of 49,000 to 18,000. LL’s Exit 13 sold 7,700 copies, down 48 percent from second week sales of 14,700. The Queens legend’s three-week total is 66,000.

Florida rapper Plies struck gold with his sophomore set. After 16 weeks, the Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic artist crossed the 500,000 mark with his Definition of Real. Plies is set to release his third album by the end of the year.—LaTisha Robbins

  • DJ DaveLee

    the only two idiots that are hatin and talking shit probably have 4 copies each of the 2.4 mil.(EReal,and Ayre). So shut the fuck up dumb bitches.

    • EReal

      Quit projecting.

      Faggot. Go listen to “A Mili” and put that gun down your throat, then pull the trigger, at least you’d be doing something besides KILLING HIPHOP.

      Just do it like Nike, Stanley.

    Capopstatus you’re a ignorant ass man. Won’t call you a nigger that’s as dumb as your name. capo and and never moved seen or touched anything drug related. mesasge to you an any other person from the east who thinks like you do QUIT HATING THE SOUTH!! East Coast can’t eat without putting someone or trying to sound southern on a album. Check that fact out everyone you named albums are flopping except ll. And for the corn remark choke on a new york slice of pizza you dumb ass.

  • Tre83

    Man capostatus is white. So he knows nothing about hip hop other than what tv and radio tells him to like! Ereal you should kill yourself for telling someone to kill theirself. And ayre is just a jackass!! Southern music is responsible for 95 percent of the samples East coast producers use in their music. And I’m not form either region so I know what the fuck I’m talking about

    • EReal

      I see Wayne’s sack blowers are in full effect. (Word to Baby, nullus).

      LMAO @ YOU for thinking skin color has ANYTHING to do with hiphop. You ever been to a skribble jam? Didn’t think so.

      Anyway, co-sign on Capostatus being a faggot lame, but keep my name outcha mouff. We all have our opinions, dont be a dickrider.

      Shit, wheres Dickrider Hater when you need em eh? lolz.

  • BIGNAT

    tham jeezy came out a week after game and now has sold more than him thats gotta hurt.

  • vonnievonn65

    Jeezy might have sold more then Game in the US…but he hasnt sold more then Game worldwide. I follow the charts carefully and if he could have sold something worldwide other then Canada he would be way ahead of Game, but Game has sold about 70-100 thou worldwide where Jeezy only sold about 20,000. Besides Games album better and he gets lets radio play…if they played some other artist on the radio maybe they would sale more…..

    • EReal

      I follow the charts carefully
      ^
      Uh, WHY?

  • Anti-Mainstream

    Two things I’m tired of! Record sales and NOT skills determining whether or not a rapper’s hot, and how great and talented Lil Wayne is. He’s decent at best but he’s not the greatest rapper alive. Start puttin the spotlight on the REAL best up and coming lyricist Joell Ortiz. He’s the best up and coming emcee since Biggie’s death…Holla back!!!!

    • EReal

      Thats a bold statement son. Sean P, Immortal Tech, Crooked I, Bishop Lamont, Term, Sky, I mean damn homie. Theres alot of dope Emcees in the game.

      You really think Joell has it?

      He’s good, but I dont know about THAT good. I mean, Em hasn’t retired.

  • Trickdd

    Its good to see Wayne,Game,Jeezy and Plies is selling some records

  • Peru (Chicago)

    I’ve been gone for a while, niggas was stealing my screen name and shit but its cool. But I got a question…WHY IS IT OUR ARTFORM HAS TO BE SO NIGGARIZED??? Why do we gotta step on the nigga in front of us just to see the back of a white man’s ass??? Most of you niggas wont get that, but the ones that do answer my question!!!

  • FORTY

    Who would have thought Weezy would sell over 2 millions copies….I don’t like your shit but good job brotha!!!

  • Ayre

    Dj DaveLee is president of lil wayne’s fan club pink division.

    • EReal

      Real Spit.

      DJDL (Dj Downlow) is gonna go get that ESPN tatoo. LOLZ

  • leemangena

    why should u always diss all whites that contribute to topics on the artform for hopw3 long r u gonna b ignorant enough to think it is the black skin that knows hiphop better…whites buy more hiphop than blacks which means they consume enough of it to understand it.the game will sell platinum

  • Clarence Murphy

    Why do everyone act like since Weezy sold A Milli first week that your favorite artist will do the same. Wayne was out here three years hustlin his ass off to get those sales obviously nothing but guest apperances. I think he deserves it He’s not lyrically there but his appeal is there and work ethic is also there. I am a fan but NOT a stan.

  • Trickdd

    Thats what im saying man all the work Wayne been doing from the Hot Boyz, Big Tymers, Mixtapes,Young Money,Features,And his albums Wayne deserve to be where he at right now I like all the people on hear that use to call me a Lil Wayne dick rider just cause I fuck with his music since he sold two milli aint nobody sayd shit to me Money Speak All that bullshit keep walking yall niggas got the game fuckt up

  • balaramesh

    congrats to wayne. game and jeezy gonna eat regardless. the biggest difference is that jeezy stays on the radio AND he doesnt have all of fiddy’s fans putting his cd on torrents like the game.

  • Maddolies

    EReal Makes Me Hate This Website. Go Stick Ur Head In The Oven And Die Fool.
