    nicki didn't flop he #as are on pace to be her 2nd top selling lp and her singles are selling so far from a flop . its funny the new standard of sales in 2014 only seems to be used when men dont put up #s like they didn 10 years ago but not for nicki

    She flopped, especially globally. The chick has sold 40k copies outside the U.S. with this album for as much as she likes to pretend she is a global star. She's probably go gold but it will be a push seeing how she is already 4 singles deep and it depends on if the label feel like wasting money pushing the album.

    She only doing 302k in two weeks during the Christmas rush is pretty week. Especially all the promo she did.

    J.Cole going platinum in 2015, LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL yall remember when 🤬 🤬 was making threads saying Cole would NEVER make it !? LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

    Yo but if Fab is selling like that with domestic promo then I think on Big KRIT's next album that 🤬 🤬 can move 200k if he position himself right. 🤬 🤬 it's virtually anyone's game at this point.

    J.Cole and Fab's success making RocNation look credible. Rihanna dropping next year too and so is Big Sean and Wale, curious to see what the latter will sell.

    Wale left Roc Nation a few months back. He is with Lebron's people now.

    Dayum I aint know that, I thought he was still with them on the mgmt tip. Prolly better for him still, they'll look out for him. I think he should leave Ross' imprint, he can do better without him and he don't need MMG. Lowkey became a fan of dude's this year.

    Before he met Ross.Wale was on his way outta rap, on his way to selling poetry books, (which he should actually do).
    Ya forgot, Attention Defecit was on interscope. Jimmy aint kno what to do with him, and dropped him.
    He 🤬 🤬 with Ross, and has been excelling since.

    Now he's better off. Gtfoh 🤬 🤬 .

    That was then, this is now, he got what he needed outta MMG & established his own lane and fanbase - that's what Jimmy couldn't understand then. But it's time for him to spread his wings & fly. Wale isn't gonna sit under Ross' 🤬 🤬 much longer. He's going to jump ship w/in 2 years & become bigger than he's ever been. It's always been between Drake, J.Cole, Kendrick & Wale. If Meek, Ross and Wale all dropped albums next week, Wale would outsell his whole camp that's how much faith I have in that 🤬 🤬 .


    ...Sion...You a good dude and all but fu*k Wale...

    Bruh since when do we hold female rappers to the standard of males sales wise

    300k in two weeks is solid

    WTF does gender have to do with 🤬 🤬 . If anything it's even more of a flop considering other than Iggy she has a whole lane to herself. Name another rapper besides Wayne, Jay, Em, and Kanye who has the media outlets and opportunity Nicki has.
  • R.D.R.D. Members Posts: 20,156 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Bruh name all the female rappers who was outselling Jay, Dmx, 50, Ja Rule, Nelly, Snoop, Pac, Big

    It's far more likely a female will buy a male album than vise versa so that alone is why you can't compare
  • R.D.R.D. Members Posts: 20,156 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Lmaoo and yall clicked ether like he got a point

    Just 7 years ago J Cole would've already been platinum

    Nobody is selling, this is the era where fat joe sold 40k

    You listing 🤬 🤬 from a different era like you got something

    None of them hoes would go platinum today

    If 300k in two weeks is a flop for any artist in today's climate, you're hating

    At their peak Kim, Foxy, Missy, and Lauryn Hill was doing their numbers. Fox got 2 platinum and one gold album. Kim got 3 platinum and 1gold album. Missy got 5 platinum and 1 gold album. Lauryn Hill has 2 platinum albums.

    All those broads came along at the same time too in a congestive market place. Nicki had no competition up until now. She has no excuse and she has a generation of bird brain thots out there. How you have 18.6 million followers and less than .2 of them are buying your album.

    Lauryn Hill's first album went 8x platinum.

    and lol @ wale carrying a sinking ship, like i said bruh dope but yall cant possibly be talking about sales wise, when wale best seller still at least a hunnid k shawt of gfid, and mastermind>the gifted in sound and sales(🤬 🤬 sleep on mastermind). if wale was where some of yall 🤬 🤬 think he is, he'd be unquestionably considered in the same tier as drake, cole and kendrick like he wants to be.

    Very good point, I never looked at it like that. Most of those fans are bandwagon fans too, they'll leave and jump on Iggy's 🤬 🤬 after they spit out Nicki. I think Nicki is better off transitioning into being an actress and businesswoman. She's more of a personality than musician IMO. Nicki got the worst type of fans just like 50 Cent and Nelly.

    I swear Drake is next SMMFH, this is why it's better to foster a real fanbase and ignore the shine early on. I'd rather have 100k fans and have 60% of them buy my albums b/c they wit me for life than 1000000 and only have half a percent buy my 🤬 🤬 SMMFH.

    When Drake's career fades around album 5, it's going to be hard as hell to get people to take him seriously again, especially since he's been the joke of the internet for the last 3-4 years. 🤬 🤬 gonna front like Drake can't rap. That's a harder hole to dig yourself out of, word to Ja Rule and LL Cool J.

    J COLE content nor style is commercial. It's a miracle he is selling that much. Nicki on the other hand is a commercial artist with a gimmick who is barely selling.

    Props to Cole and Fab, showing it's about touring and reaching out to your fanbase so they will spend the dough. LOL @ Nicki. All that promo, all those appearances, That album budget was crazy to for all those producers yet the fans still are decreasing. This album won't sell as much as "Reloaded" but lucky for her since it's Christmas season she will at least go Gold.

    All artist signed to indy are considered mainstream then since indy labels are distributed by majors.

    Mainstream is the type of music you make, subject matter, and the outlets available to you.

    KRIT and Iggy are signed to the same label. Can't tell me KRIT is mainstream.

    Krit is signed to Def Jam, he's mainstream

    There's no such thing as mainstream music lol
