    nah, albums havent seemed to be the main source of revenue for artists these last few years anyway, plus albums might not be selling, but singles still are

    but damn, i thought cb album was still on the way

    TI, Wiz and Game careers are over...thought that Game shit was a mixtape just googled and seen it was a full length album lol..them sales are tragic.

    Logic is impressive considering I never heard of him til yesterday yet he;s rubbin shoulders wit a legend and respected vet.

    Hmmm, in this climate I wonder what my nigga Fab first week sales gonna look like on his next album seeing as TI just sold fuckery...

    Kendrick is killin these niggas out here

    And at the same time Im surprised he isnt at double platinum in almost 2 years of release.

    (Got the chart from here its from 2011)

    http://www.go-gulf.com/blog/online-piracy/

    This chart says 7 out of 10 people find nothing wrong with piracy, so lets for the sake of the numbers game say these 7 out of 10 people pirate music and say if illegal downloaded didn't exist half of the pirates would purchase albums. So we will multiply modern album sales by 3.5 to get a figure of what modern artist would have likely sold in the Pre-Pirate Era.

    Lets use Kendrick's GKMC (1,323,773 X 3.5 = 4,633,205 ) as a ruler and compare him to his contemporaries from Pre-Pirate eras.

    Game sold 5 million copies of The Documentary

    Snoop sold 4 million copies of Doggystyle

    Dre Sold 6 million copies of 2001

    Kendricks GKMC copies factoring in piracy 4.6 million copies.

    Kendricks calculated sales are on par with the rappers from the Pre Pirate era from his region. I personally always thought GKMC would have sold 5 Million in the old era, before I even had the idea of factoring in pirating. What the reason heads think about this?

    I see it another way. You say "We're not anywhere close to where we used to be." Actually, if you think about it, it's deep. Out of everybody you listed, T.I, Chris Brown, Game and Jeezy have all been around for 10 years. They might not be selling what they were selling 10 years ago but they're still around.

    Another way to look at it, 10 years ago, how many rap artists in the top 100 had been around for 10 years?

    It's not that rap music is selling less, I think there are more albums to buy, old and new. There's probably just as many new artists as there were 10-15 years ago, but you also have to add all of the rappers that came into the scene since that time. Then consider they all have albums(or mixtapes). They can't sell as much individually because there's so much to choose from.

    I'd be surprised if overall sales are down. I think top 40/New Hip Hop sales may be in decline but people are buying older classic albums for example Good Kid Maad City is still selling because it's a classic. There must be dozens, if not scores of classic rap albums that continue to sell each week.

    I wish the T/S posted the whole list.
