Passing The Throne: Lil Wayne’s Carter IV On Course To Sell 850,000 Copies This Week!

We’ve all been making fun of Lil Wayne over the last few days, but it looks like the joke is on us.

According to Billboard, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is on pace to sell anywhere between 850,000 and 900,000 in its first week. That would make it the highest selling album of the year, almost doubling sales of Jay-Z and Kanye’s Watch The Throne that was supposed to be the biggest release of 2011.

The most amazing thing about it is that Weezy’s promotion for the album has been lackluster at best. Still, he somehow dropped an album that everyone was dying to get their hands on.

No word yet on if Baby has been hitting up every Best Buy in the country to cop 500,000 for himself to boost the sales, which wouldn’t surprise us. Either way, congrats to Weezy F. Baby!

  • Please stop hating. The negativity is not pretty or professional. What writer/journalist would accuse one of the biggest and most popular rappers of all time of needing someone to buy his albums on some fraud stuff? I'm on my way to best buy now so please

    Please stop it. The negativity is not pretty or professional. What writer/journalist/blogger would accuse one of the biggest rappers of all time of needing someone to go out and fraudulently run up his sales? I’m on my way to best buy now so put another one in weezy f. baby’s win column.

    I like those women’s jeggings he was wearing at the VMAs more than I do his new album (and I don’t like the jeggings that much)

    S/N- yeah, I bootlegged it….. And for good reason. Not his best work.

    His fans (cult peasants) who worship him are quite loyal. Theyre like a cult and they buy multiple copies so no shocker
