Weezy Goes Platinum

- By Bossip Staff Categories: News

Here’s another milestone for ole Weezy’s scrapbook:

“In a music industry climate where album sales are on the decline, rapper Lil Wayne managed to go platinum in just one week of having his third solo album, Tha Carter III, on the market. The album sold 1,005,545 copies since it’s July 10 release, according to AllHipHop. Official numbers are expected to be released by Nielsen SoundScan later today.”

Miracles do happen folks, and this is proof.

    that wack ass music

  • chrissy

    I’M SURE THE RECORD COMPANY OR BABY BOUGHT MOST OF THOSE ALBUMS BECAUSE EVERYBODY ALREADY DOWNLOADED IT FOR FREE ON THE INTERNET SO I’M VERY SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE WERE STILL BUYING IT…I MYSELF GOT THE ALBUM FOR FREE ON THE INTERNET…

  • BLACKANDMILD

    It’s not a miracle, Lil Wayne’s flow is sick. It’s almost scary the way he murders tracks on the Carter 3. And this is coming from someone who doesn’t listen to much rap at all.

  • Joey Boats

    Yo that album IS 4 1/2 mics though

  • J0k3r

    Congrats!

  • CGJ

    And I bet all those copies are sitting in Baby’s garage…

  • fire & ice

    finally someone sells over a million in first week again!!!!! The best thing about this is Wayne didn’t have to beef with anyone. Huge hand clap.

  • num1dominicano

  • Kompton's Kutie

    Nothing but fillers!!!!!!!

    Jay Z murdered the remix of “A Milli”.

  • Just_Wanna_Know

    He probably sold more like 2 million. Everyone I know has a bootleg copy of this CD but of course those sells are not included. Weezy did the damn thang!

    One rap artist asked the streets “who is hotter than me.” I guess he clearly got his answer. Lil Wayne has serious crossed over appeal, while respecting and expanding his hood base.

    The numbers don’t LIE! There are very few artist that can generate $10 million dollars in ONE week (1,000,000units x $10/per unit). Big Ups to Lil Wayne! www-kingdeon-com

    TERRIBLE. IF A BEAT IS GOOD, DON’T GIVE CREDIT TO THE ARTIST. GIVE IT TO THE PRODUCER! THAT IS WHAT I KEEP HEARD. THAT BEAT WAS CRAZY ON LOLLIPOP OR THAT MILLI WAS ILL. I’M ILL! SICK. I AM FROM THE SOUTH AND I CAN’T STAND THAT SLURRED UP, SYRUPPED UP GARBAGE. BUT IF HE FOUND A MILLION PEOPLE (INCLUDING THE LABEL) TO BUY THAT, THEN BLESS HIS HEART (I GUESS). THERE IS COKE TO SNORT AND SYRUP TO SIP.

  • kai

    man…for some GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAGE LOL ya sure downloaded it lol….apparently you wanted to hear what the man was saying so he has some SEMBLANCE of talent…little wayne has everyone listening and singing along to his songs…hes talented…

  • Pnastyy1

    The album is straight trash. He never stays on topic and just raps about nothing. This dude is not even one of the top 10 rapper alive let alone the best. He’s good on everybody else’s tracks. His song writing skills is straight doo-doo.

  • Just_Wanna_Know

    I just want to say also that I like this CD. A lot or people don’t for whatever reason. I think people were expecting it to be like the Carter 2 and it’s not. I think it shows his growth but then too some may take it as him crossing over or something negative. I think Wayne may be in a different chapter in his life and he cannot talk about the same thing over and over again. He’s got a zillion mixed tapes. Like Jay-Z what else can he say to us? LOL

  • MeMe

    I MEANT HEARING.

    AND FOR THE RECORD, ARTIST ARE ON A POINT SYSTEM. DUDE GET 10 MIL. HE GOT A %. YOU HAVE TO GO PLATINUM JUST TO RECOOP MONEY FROM VIDEOS AND PROMOTION (DEPENDING ON HOW MANY VIDS ARE SHOT). THESES ARTIST NEED OUTSIDE VENTURES TO AND TOURS TO REALLY MAKE MONEY. YOU HAVE TO EXPAND YOUR BRAND. THAT IS WHY I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY RAPPERS GET HATED ON WITH THIS SITE AT TIMES FOR DOING WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. HANDLE THEIR BUSINESS.
