50 Cent Doesn’t Believe Lil Wayne’s First-Week Sales

50 Cent thinks there’s something fishy behind the platinum-plus sales of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV album.

“To be honest with you, the Lil Wayne sales are a little suspect to me,” 50 told Global Grind. “Because it was trending 600,000 pieces that week. And they didn’t do a million copies, it was like 900,000. Tha Carter III commanded that energy, but the last one that just came out, those numbers are funny.”

This comes after ’Fif threw darts at Weezy on his “Love, Hate, Love” off his Street King Energy Series saying: “Acting like a white boy bored, now you wanna jump a flight of stairs on a skateboard/Nigga, why the fuck ya pants so tight?/You trying to show niggas your ass, your alternative life.”

50 says his next album will be out before the year ends. —Jakinder Singh

  • thoms3

    nobody believes those numbers…..I think something funny is going on too…

  • jesuslover666

    Who gives a fuck.

  • BasedGod!!Swag

    Those are the type of numbers you can do in a week when you cross over. White people are in love with Lil Wayne. They will buy anything he puts out.

  • Elmo

    I cant believe that people listen to all the bullshit 50 cent says all the time he why would the numbers be fake Wayne got enough fans to by his albums 50 is just Jealous

      because like Eugene stated underneath us, there’s more to it than what you think. Somewhere down the line the fans have to realize that opinions, when stating no facts, are only emotional statements and hold no value…

      A wise man would know that 50 has no reason to be jealous of Wayne…

  • MY NAME IS EUGENE

    The whole Soundscan system is a sham and can be easily manipulated by any record label who has money or doing special “favors” for certain execs.

    Here are two books i reccomend for people interested
    1.Hit men by Fredric Dannen -Basically it’s about the inner workings of the music business.After reading this book you’ll see the music industry is like our government,SHADY!!!!.

    2.Hiding In Hip Hop by Terrance Dean -This book is infamous,do the math and peep it.
    Big shout to the homie KaySlay for shoutin this one out while taking a piss on Jermaine Dupri (see Youtube for this.)

    I hope everyone has a blessed day and take care of themselves.

    Justin Beiber sold 750K in the first week of his last album.

    Lady Gaga sold 1.1 in the first week (she was literally giving them away for like a $ or something)

    This nigga lil wayne…. SERIOUSLY!!!!

    I mean Lady Gaga has “HITS” when she drops a video the anticipation is like a new movie trailer.

    This shit right here lil wayne? Album is terrible.

    6ft 7 was cool but come on!!!!! 1 Million….Come on!

    It’s logic, it’s not real because everyone is still asking each other “Does anyone know anyone who bought Carter IV?”.

    No one has ever asked that about “Watch The Throne”.

    I think the real numbers are around 300K, there was no steep decline, in the first 3 days that’s the peak and the rest is just fall fall fall fall for most artist unless they just drop a No1 banging video during the 1st week.

    Lil Waynes figures was like up, up , up , up (week and a half later) steady, (week after that) fall (weeks later) up.

    & ask white people to name a lil wayne song on Carter 4 watch them think lol (um,….She or she will… she loves?) lol

        go back to storm front

        we dont need white racist critsizing black musicians

        they can’t do a rap album like those black artists so why are they writing revues????

  • alderman j

THERE GOAL IS TO MAKE MONEY OFF THE FIRST WEEK SALES SO B CLEAR NO WAY UNIVERSAL, SLIM, BABY, OR WAYNE PURCHASED THOSE ALBUMS!!! YALL NIGGAS ARE SUCH HATERS YALL MAKE SHIT UP THAT DOESNT MAKE ANY SENSE WHAT SO EVER!! OR YOU JUST SUCH FIF DICK RIDERS THAT WHAT EVER HE SAYS YOU CLONES REPEAT IT!!!! WHAT A SAD LIFE YOU NIGGAS LEAD!!!!SMH

    • MY NAME IS EUGENE

      Good Afternoon alderman j
      It’s already known that Soundscan is fixed.
      And it’s probably the higher ups at Universal that have power to fix numbers.
      Even Fifty’s numbers have been questioned.

      I agree with you that 50 is probably puzzled that he’s not on top anymore but Wayne is.
      But today’s industry is a joke.If 50 had enough pull to push Styles P album back, who’s to say that with enough clout you could have numbers manipulated in your favor?

      I think we need to concentrate on promoting good music and stop focusing on numbers because some artists albums are being shipped in lower numbers than some other artists and that’s what makes this system not reliable.

      Also I wanted to say that i’m a fan of both 50 and Wayne.
      Take care and have a blessed day fam.

    this is the time for ma nigga wayne to prove that he is the best seller , tha cartar iv outsold eminem album recovery in the first week, keep it out weezy and show this hater that you are tha king of best selling….

    • jrash87

      Ok you illiterate fuck, you brought this upon yourself. So you think 50 is a weak man,fair enough but who you to judge? I heard that lil wayne tried to commit suicide isnt that a weak act? Ive also seen 3 seperate photos of this guy kissing another man, is that what you called hard core? I call that gay..I also noticed that you hate honkys,why? is it because the white boy rapped circles around lil wayne on every song they went into gether? You fucking hypocrite racsist cunt. And with that whole 50/ kanye thing? Everyone knows that was an publicity stunt just for sales. Every one calls 50 a bitch that wants attention, but what of wayne? to me he is in the same boat, hes jumping on everyones dick just for the attention, from the Game to justin beiber, hes an attention whore! Look leave the whoopi golberg look alike alone he is not rap/ hiphop at all, he is bubblegum lollipop trash. T.I is the real king of the south, r.i.p pimp c. So before you come on here with your hatefull racsist comments, go listen to some real hiphop like nas, mos def, wu-tang, ODB, and check yourself. PEACE

  • aaron

    finally someone is saying the truth…….him and J.Cole have suspect sales numbers…….When Hov said numbers do not lie he forgot to mention that Executives like him buy records to manipulate the actual sales……….Thank you 50!

    50 can’t stop being negative toward people that are doing good. Like Ross said about Conseco, “You’re just mad cause you’re finished”.

    50 and Lil wayne are my two bests…i’d rather hang out with 50 cause he seems more of a humble-chill guy. I gotta say though I like lil wayne’e music better…can’t you blind people see what lil wayne is trying to accomplish by wearing the shit he wears and maybe even riding a skateboard?…he’s trying to INJECT change with music and fashion…who says a black man can’t wear skinny’s and ride a skateboard?…who says a black man can’t run for president?…yes i’m sure he still has resentment towards white people but at least he’s doing his part when and where he can besides the way he might really feel….INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT INJECT….RIPPLE RIPLLE RIPPLE RIPPLE RIPPLE RIPPLE…..TIPPING POINT….SUCCESS!!!!
