Carter III sold more then a mil in its first week and didn't even get 3 mil sold yet. Yes think about when it came out way more then a year ago and still hasn't cracked 3 mil. Thanks to b-low by the way. Also exposed that it is the only album in history to do that.

Okay look, we all know that Lil Wayne is your favorite rapper.

Lil Wayne sold 1 million copies in his first week, Jay-Z has sold 750 k in 2 weeks.

This is a thread about Jay-Z's album sales, so the only reason you brought up Wayne is to remind us about how much more he sold, which makes it seem like you think sales= greatness.

Strong selling numbers; also Kid Cudi's got a bit over 100k while So Far Gone got 70k.

I honestly don't count So Far Gone since it's an EP. EPs never do good usually.

i'm giving BP3 its first listen through as we speak... i had only heard 'DOA', 'run this town', 'empire state of mind' [all of which i like btw] and 'off that' up to this point.

'what we talkin bout' is an amazing track imo... 'onto the next one' is dope as f*ck, and the third verse of 'thank you' is sick. the track with jeezy is tough as hell too. it's clear hov hasn't lost it as a rapper, imo he hasn't sounded this good since black album. i know the track with drake sucks c*ck but i have high hopes for the rest of the album

If Drake's EP is doing 70 k in the first week, then his album should cross 300 in the first week easy. With good promotion and radio play, he could do gold in the first week.

It's impossible explaining this to a person like him. There are many other records that Jay holds and Wayne will never match......but he won't ever mention that

I'm not a huge Jay fan, but he has the most #1 albums of all time, if your talking about sales records.

Music wise, The Blueprint pretty much turned Kanye West & Just Blaze into two of the most high demand producers out there. Also has 2 (arguably 3 if you Black Album is classic, I don't) classic albums.

Wayne may sell a lot, but he hasn't achieved anything substantial musically, in terms of quality albums or changing the game.
