    why would numbers impress me???

    i find the way the music business works intriguing but the numbers dont impress me.

    i jus see ross as the type of artist that has a real black fanbase
    and
    a fanbase that is into goin to shows at the club more than they are interested in goin to best buy or itunes and copping

    so with that,i would think even an artist of his caliber aint selling what little the reports say.

    10 cars can pass by my house
    7 of those cars may have a ross song playing
    1 of those cars my hold a purchased copy of a ross album
