Yeah... this seems more realistic.

Even tho I was extremely surprised at Raekwon even being in the Itunes list, let alone as the top seller overall.

It has become completely about image and "what's hot", as opposed to simply being about good music.

MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice, Nelly... these guys are top 10 all time in album sales. Not a measure of quality of content. I'm sure if Raekwon was married to Beyonce, his album sales might be a tad higher

Doesn't change the fact, Cuban Linx 2>>>Blueprint 3

Not what he's saying dumb****, if Rae was married to a person on that level of celebrity he probably would be too.

Just saying, Jay's in the spotlight/media eye more. His name is more recognizable to the casual fan than Rae's. It's not like it was unexpected and worthy, and it isn't a marker of quality like I said.

Questions that need honest, unbiased answers... if you have that capacity-

1) Are you really surprised by the sales numbers? If so, why?
2) Do you think BP3>CL 2?

1) I'm not actually surprised by the sale numbers. Jay has probably the second biggest popularity overall in Hip Hop next to Eminem (650k first week for Relapse with shitty videos and promotion, how does that even make sense?)

2) I think it's better only because I'm not a fan of the Wu's style of rap, gritty beats like they use, and the style is just repetitive for me. In my opinion, it has too many features and it's all monotone, kind of like Drake and a lot of Nas. It just gets boring, I think Jay can change his voice/emotion on a track better to make it easier to listen to. Call it swagger or whatever you call it, I think its a big part of rap and I think Jay has that on Rae. I could see how people say Rae's album is better though. I didn't give it a true listen either, its just not for me.

I respect a man that is in it for the business as well as the music. Just like I respect lebron for being one of the greatest ballers today but also wanting to be a billionaire.
