  • [June 20] Ludacris, 50 Cent, Kanye West Congratulate Lil Wayne On TCIII's Success

    'Bow in the presence of a true living legend in hip-hop,' Kanye says of Weezy's million-plus sales.



    They used to just talk about his songs now hip-hop's biggest stars are talking about his numbers too.

    Lil Wayne's peers are publicly recognizing how great a feat it was for the New Orleans native to move over a million units of his Tha Carter III in the first week.

    "Congrats to my homie, Wayne," Kanye West, who produced on the album, posted on his blog Tuesday. "I'm happy to know this guy! Bow in the presence of a true living legend in hip-hop. Lil Wayne the God!"

    On Thursday (June 19), while calling in to New York radio station Hot 97, 50 Cent who was the last artist before Wayne to sell a million copies in first week of release with 2005's The Massacre labeled Tha Carter III's debut "amazing."

    "I think I'm really confused," 50 added. "I think all I need to do is make good music and see what happens. Usher had a #1 record across the board, and he only sold over 400,000. Then Wayne comes and does those numbers. ... I don't understand what the connection is. What audience is going out to buy it?"

    While in Atlanta, Ludacris told MTV News that Wayne's success was hard-earned. "Wayne's been in the game a long time," said 'Cris, while sitting in the studio with DJ Drama. "I've done records with him. Apart from everything else that's going on, it's well-deserved. Wayne, congratulations. You worked hard for that's sh--, and you deserve it."

    A Luda and Wayne collaboration was originally slated to be on Tha Carter III and may still find a home elsewhere. "I know he has a million songs, but we're still trying to find a placement for this song me and Lil Wayne did," Luda said

    Sales don't make you a legend.

          I've already said my piece on the album. In all seriousness, this album has about four genuinely good (For his standard, anyway.) tracks. None of them turn Lil Wayne into some Rap/Hip-Hop God, let alone does that ultimately summon Tha Carter III a classic. It's 'aight. But really....be serious for a minute, man. I know you like people like him and Young Jeezy but c'mon.

              It's a fun album to listen to every now and then, but far from a classic.

                  So agreeing that Lil Wayne makes "classic music" makes you a good critic? That's th most retarded thing I heard since The Carter 3.

                    Whenever I hear about Lil Wayne's repulsing popularity I feel like that Will Ferrel character from Zoolander.



                    My Top 5 Personal Favorite Rappers:

                    1. Slug (of Atmosphere)
                    2. Eminem
                    3. Brother Ali
                    4. Ludacris
                    5. The Streets (Mike Skinner)

                      i wonder if these same rappers would come out and comment on other "legends" selling a million in their first week.

                      a true hip hop legend? wtf? i guess he must be since it comes from kanye and kanye considers himself a hip hop legend.

                      im sure after hearing that common must be wishing he was dead so he could roll over in it.
