  • SRC/Universal Records "Dumbfounded" At The Lack Of Sales For Terror Squad

    While hot radio singles often equal success for an artist, that has been anything but for the Terror Squad. As of press time, their album "True Story" has Soundscanned 274,000 units despite being in stores for over 2 months now.

    "Fat Joe & The Terror Squad made a hot record. It set things up perfectly for solos from Remy (Martin), Tony Sunshine, Armageddon, and the upcoming Fat Joe album "Things Of That Nature" (in stores Nov. 30)," says Steve Rifkind, head of SRC/Universal. "We've looked into it and even had special meetings about Terror Squad's album, and we are dumbfounded. We just don't know why the buzz has not resulted in record sales. If someone knows, please let us know because it just doesn't make sense."

    In the meantime, Rifkind says that SRC/Universal will continue to press forward with new albums by David Banner and Orlando, Florida's Grandaddy Souf in the 1st quarter of 2005. "The South is the hottest region in hip-hop right now. David Banner had great success with his two albums 'Mississippi: The Album' and 'MTA2: Baptized In Dirty Water' and this one promises to be even better."

    "And now the mainstream has embraced Akon. We're glad that Universal kept promoting him even though he didn't sell many units the first week." That perseverance has paid off as the single "Locked Up" featuring Styles P has launched the album "Trouble" back into the Billboard Top 50.

    Poor marketting th is reason, they act like somebody knows who Terror Squad is outside of Big Pun and Fat Joe fans. Most of th time u see th video it didn't even say Terror Squad so ppl thought it was a Fat Joe song, and most importantly why buy th cd when th song is gettin played on th radio every 5 mins?

                yea, foreal, no one was impressed by terror squad in the song, they were impressed by the beat

                no one gives a fuck about the rucker
                Cause the ***** wear a kufi, it don't mean that he bright
                Cause you don't understand him, it don't mean that he nice
                It just means you don't understand all the bullshit that he write

                    ^dude, get another avy, im serious as fuck

                    lean back rmx is on the radio right now

                    but i think that song (lean back) was the cause of them not selling i mean fat joe got two verses and the hook, leavving one verse for remy. so where does that leave the rest of them.... nowhere.

                    then he does the remix which only has 1 other person for TS on it which is remy again an d then put mase,eminem, and lil john on it...... where the rest of TS again, nowhere
                    WOO WOO WOO, You Know it!
