  • June 14 - Lil Wayne Closes In On One Million Mark

    Despite a recent leak of his latest album, Cash Money Records rapper Lil Wayne is expected to sell one million copies of Tha Carter III.

    Billboard reports that the Cash Money/Universal release could reach the milestone by the time SoundScan closes out its tracking week on Sunday (June 15) night.

    The last album to sell one million copies in a week was G-Unit frontman 50 Centís sophomore project The Massacre, which sold 1.1 million units upon its March 2005 release.

    On Thursday (June 12), Tha Carter III boasted unweighted sales at 630,000, the largest number the SoundScan Friday Building chart has seen since it began in September.

    Rapper Kanye West produced a similar result when his album, Graduation, moved 600,000 copies the Friday of its release.

    The Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam album ended up selling 957,000 units in its first full week on store shelves.

    News of Tha Carter III reaching the one million mark comes as Lil Wayne enjoys the success of his number one single "Lollipop" and follow-ups "A Milli" and "Got Money."

    Although the album is proving to be a success, its status was doubtful after Lil Wayne angered mixtape DJs when he spoke out against them during a recent interview with The Foundation Magazine.

    Offended by the rapper's remarks, DJ Chuck T intentionally leaked the album and encouraged fans to download the album for free instead of buying it in stores.

    Lil Wayne and Universal declined to pursue the matter regarding Chuck Tís leaking the album and the rapper later clarified his remarks and apologized to the DJs during an appearance on DJ Dramaís Shade 45 Sirius satellite radio show.

        Hell yeah. I'm glad Weezy will be selling that much.

        I'm also glad that he's one of the few artists that doesn't give a shit about sales.

              As much free material as he's given the past few years...he definitely deserves it. Bought my copy Thursday.

                And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day

                  If I got it well Kanye was up to 600 000 on friday, while Wayne was at 630 000 on THURSDAY? So that would be 30 000 more a day before? Dude might really hit a millie first week.

                      Well I bought 500 copies so that number is slightly bloated.

                            lmao remember lil wayne saying this?

                            "I've never done a song with Eminem. I sent him a song and he ain't do it. I didn't like that but it's all good. People be busy and stuff or a.k.a. just scared to get on a song with me."

                            Clearly Eminem is too good for lil wayne... lmao scared... what a joke.


                            And remember when eminem made a Mixtape Called The Re up, an it went platinum... thats skill

                              What'd you expect? For him to LIKE the fact that Em rejected the song? "Oh, thank God Em didn't record that song I sent him, I wouldn't have wanted THAT!" And yes, Re-Up went platinum, but it took months to get there, Carter III is taking days. Don't you have some ugly person things to do?

                              *waits for more haters to come in here and post Eminem-related statistics and cry*
