    imma go with either dr or badboy.....cant forget about ruff ryders and the roc tho......when you really think about this shit look at cats like snoop, dmx, diddy and jay-z now compare them to others labels highest sellers and its no comp......in 98-99 dmx sold like 10 mill alone, that chumps wayne, drake nikkki and whoever else cashmoney released in the past few years
    Yeah, but also when you look at Ruff Ryders, DMX was the only one doing those type of numbers aside from Eve. Cash Money has had a few artists go Platinum plus more than once.




    cant believe im discussing sales..this is only because we're talking about run.....bottom line is eve was doing what wayne is doing....kiss was doing damn near what nikki and drake are doing.....x blows them out the water....what aint you seeing sun....
    Lol now you exaggerating. Eve never sold like Lil Wayne. Carter 3 and Carter 4 alone >>> Eve's total sales. Kiss' most popular album took like a year to sell 1 million. Drake & Nicki do that in 2 months.

    Only thing they have over them is X, but Juvenile + Lil Wayne make up for that.

    Crakas was buyin those albums

    THANK YOU!
    not to mention when you add in all the other gold and platinum albums from Cash Money's roster
    the hot boys went platinum, the big tymers went platinum, bg consistently went gold
    hell even the baller blockin soundtrack went gold

    might be exaggerating a lil but yo...the lox as a group had i think 2 gold ones.....styles p had a gold kiss with at least plat and gold, think eve went double twice and a gold and then the x factor.....and whether it took a year or a week it is what it is.....let me get off of this sales shit though....that aint even what i'm about
    I can recall the days, juvenile crime pays
    14 years old, shorty from round way
    brick ass cold, still pump from night to day
    but why did my life have to be this way
    I rock Velour suits, flavors like mixed fruits
    my loot get recouped razors in my suit
    incase they try to troop me to the island
    I known to start whylin back in New York, my soldiers got the cash pilin
    peep this on some nose and teef shit
    so much drama, who the fuck knows who we got beef wit

  • BackInWhiteBackInWhite Posts: 23,591 ✭✭✭✭✭
    checkmate was the shit
    that's the album that really made me appreciate Mannie Fresh
    that song that went "i'm a animal in the jungle so ya better beware..." with the fuckin jungle and animal sounds in the background was so goddamn cinematic and atmospheric
    shit felt like a nigga was really in the jungle or somethin
    like a nigga just stepped outta jumanji or some shit

    I loved that album, although it was kinda dark, I think B.G. was on that end heavy when he did this one.

    Cash Money had the best run when it comes to sales and longevity.

    Ruff Ryders had a lil run from like 99-01, but they fell off fast and was nowhere near Death row, No Limit, Cash money, Bad Boy, or Roc-A-Fella status. G-Unit had a way longer run than RR did.

    Cash Money is the only argument you could make against Death Row b/c it had 2 runs. Best run is 93-96 Death Row. 8 albums, all multi-platinum, 3 top 10 hip hop artists of all time.....during a very strong era of hip hop in terms of sales & overall quality, there wasn't any real competition for them.
