In 50’s eyes, Wayne’s album sales jumped tremendously from its initial projections.
When we mentioned Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV almost selling a million albums in the first week, 50 let us know immediately that he wasn’t buying the numbers. “To be honest with you, the Lil Wayne sales are a little suspect to me. Because it was trending 600,000 pieces that week. And they didn’t do a million copies, it was like 900,000.” In regards to Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, which sold a million copies in the first week back in 2008, 50 gives Lil Wayne his props: “Tha Carter III was definitely hot. He did that.” 50 Cent goes on to say: “Tha Carter III commanded that energy, but the last one that just came out, those numbers are funny.” (Global Grind)
Do you guys think Cash Money Records CEO brothers Bryan “Birdman” & Ronald “Slim” Williams help Weezy’s Tha Carter IV shift platinum in its first week release?
