Eminem Recovery First Week Projection

According to Hits, Eminem’s Recovery is expected to do football numbers as the highest first week selling album of the year.

Offering conclusive proof that Marshall still matters, Eminem’s aptly named Recovery will score the year’s highest sales debut. Look for a total of between 590-615k for the Shady/Aftermath/Interscope album, easily beating Sade’s 503k back in February. It could also beat his last album, Relapse, which sold 608k in its first week in May ’09.

    “what em did was silly!!”

  • RICH1

    @ aubrey stan bitch you bug u been on the comp all day. get off the school library and do something productive. go listen to drakes rnb album while jacking off.

  • teejay

    For people bringin up wayne numbers

    Wayne was on an upward swing, his promotion was amazing and his constant output brought him a strong fanbase. He released the album at the greatest moment of hype, and from what I remember the leak wasn’t dramatic. Everything about that album went right, great single, great timing, it was a perfect storm where everything went right.

    Drake could have done a milli had tml been released around when forever dropped, or earlier when the hype was still strong. Now its still there but the new has worn off. They missed the window.

    Em didn’t have a shot at a milli, because he was fighting uphill, coming off a critically lukewarm release, out of a depression/addiction. At this point for em its like he’s a new artist, his old fan base has grown up so he’s having to reach a new generation. Obviously he’s doing well, but he doesn’t have the immediate market drake or wayne has.

  • If u comment on my comment ur pretty much GAY!!!

    BURRR..GUCCI >>>Eminem

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION

  • Blaze

    BEST RAPPER ALIVE!Good sales.

  • flow j

    I LIKE HOW PEOPLE LIKE @WORD FORGET THAT EMINEM HAS THE BEST SELLING HIP HOP ALBUM OF ALL TIME!!!!!!!!!! 1.76 MILLION lol yall continually to discredit him

  • Interscope Employee

    Em is allergic to the word “flop” haha!!! that shit never happened to him

  • Gordon B.

    @WORD!!!
    This ain’t 2008, Carter 4 isn’t going to do a mil first week no matter how good it is.
    I also didn’t think Em would do a mil first week, only people with no understanding of reality would think that.
    This album is better than his last but records sales go down every year so I guessed around 600k+ first week sales after hearing Not Afraid.

  • http://eminem50cent.ru/ Eminem

    fuck!!!!!!!!!!!

  • WHAT

    @Donn Maybe if more rappers put out quality music that would change

    But anyway The Roots is quality, Kanye is droppin and so is T.I. Also that new Big Boi. Maybe things will shift

  • k1

    a million first week will probably never happen again, the carter 3 is probably going to be the last to do that at least for a while…every year album sales drop thats the times the music industry lives in…i’m just hoping that Recovery sells more than Relapse did its first week…if this would’ve been released close to the time when TES and MMLP was released I can see Recovery doing a million easily its first week or at least close to

  • If u comment on my comment ur pretty much GAY!!!

    The State Vs Radric Davis’ album sales were WAY better
    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION

  • flow j

    Why yall stuck on carter 3 lol………..Lets talk about Rebirth…..Lil waynes last album 160,000 LMFAO FLOP!!! FLOP FLOP FLOP like a dead fish taken out from the oilly water from the gulf

  • Aubrey Stan

    AUbrey WIns again!

  • POINTLESS

    @ EVERYONE Even Jay said it

    “Wayne did a millie, 50 did a millie,
    Ye too, but what Em did was silly,
    The white boy blossomed after Dre endorsed him,
    His flow on Renegade, f-cking awesome,
    Applaud him”

    So stop this Wayne/Em shit. Both are talented rap artists. I stress the word RAP because I don’t know what Wayne was doing on that last album

  • Gawd

    Congrats Em, even though Recovery should’ve beaten Relapse easily by 100k, great job. And to the stupidass haters who do nothing but troll on every Eminem post here, why dont you look back to the MMLP when Em was 2 years into mainstream and dropped A Milli. But it took Wayne 10 years to get where Em was at in 2 years.
    Do the Math.
    Get a life.

  • Jermaine

    I mean these are decent sale. nothing amazing. If Drake can do 500,000 first week with his DEBUT, Eminem should be able to move much more than 600,000! Eminem’s global, people where I live have never heard of Drake.

  • WORD!!!

    GOD DAMN IT’S SO MANY FEMINEM IN HERE I’M ABOUT TO SWEAT DAMN……..

    THE CARTER 3 SOLD MORE THAN RELAPSE & RECOVERY FIRST WEEK SALES COMBINED…….

    OH THE GREAT WHITE HOPE HAS FAIL…….HA !

  • EduardKJ

    Funny how all Lil’ Wayne fans write in caps and say nothing but nonsense while the Em fans make intelligent comments.

  • RECOVERY

    Em still holds down this music industry. Fuck everyone who thinks otherwise. The greatest to ever do it is back!

  • think about it?

    DRAKE HYPE HYPE HYPE !!! DRAKE THIS DRAKE THAT OMG. RADIO PLAY LIKE 4 SONGS EVERY 30 MINUTES. EMINEM NOT MUCH HYPE, HARD TIME ADJUSTING TO TODAY’S GENERATION( JERKIN, TOOTED N BOOTED, BEAT NO LYRICS INVOLVE TYPE MUSIC) RADIO PLAYS ONCE EVERY HOUR….STILL OUTSALES THAT RNB ALBUM OF DRAKE..

    HA! DRAKE PUSHING A MILLI FAIL WITH ALL THAT HYPE! SMH

  • Shipp

    @ LIL WAYNE SET THE BAR TO HIGH FOR HIP HOP — Eminem’s MMLP sold 1.7 million copies in its first week. The Carter III sold about 1.05 million copies in its first week. MMLP is diamond; The Carter III is triple platinum.

  • LOL

    @Jermaine I’m pretty sure that Em went platinum worldwide dumbass. These are just sales in the U.S. And we’ll see if Drake can do those numbers 7 albums in…or maybe we won’t. He may quit by then. BTW Jay >>> than your favorite rapper

  • http://myspace.com/mrjonesbelize mr. jones

    so 2 albums in a row are gonna do 600k+ in the 1st week? 2 yrs in a row hes gone have the highest sellin album?

  • teejay

    @pointless

    Where is that from?

  • http://rapradar.com many24

    The mmlp 1.7 first week…..tes 1.3 first week back to back albums……I dont see lil wayne ever doin that

  • imeafk

    why u mention waynes carter 3 numbers and not Rebirth? i can remember MMLP, TES, and even encore second week sales (because the first was only 3 days) sold more than carter 3… man u speak as even sales make better the album.. TML is worse than Bobs album and sold 6 times more… wanna hear somethin new; music is for yourself… hear it if u like or not hear it if u dont… i wanna hear Talkin 2 Myself and Going Through Changes all day… u can hear lolipop…

  • Chris

    I hope people dont get it twisted and think the sales of Drake and Eminem mean that the industry is doing well.

    In fact I think its worse that labels rely on maybe like a handful of Hip-Hop acts to sell and promote them while others get zero promotion and not enough spins on radio (which we know is a label thing lets be real). The fact that the gap has widened is kinda dishearnted.

    So while others celebrate Em and Drake’s achievements (and btw give them all the credit, they deserve it and were smart to figure it out), Im still dissapointed when I look at the sales of Wu-Massacre, Reflcetion Eternal, Janelle Monae, BoB, Distant Relatives and this new Roots album. I know they arent big sellers anyway, but each had a developing fanbase/interest that could have used a genuine push.

  • Vegard

    Who cares about first week sales? Come back in 10 years and tell med Tha Carter III sold more than Recovery. Then I’ll listen!

  • Aubrey Stan

    Every Em fan should kill themselves if they are niggas. Buying this white devils music. Shake your head at your own damn self. Em sitting back laughing at “Niggers” buying his shit about killing wives, raping children and hanging Blacks. Yea thats right. Go back and listen to Encore, White America. Subliminally talking about lynching niggers

    DONT HATE ON AUBREY STAN!!!!

  • WORD!!!

    WHY THE FEMINEM BRINGING UP OLD SALES EMINEM DID BACK IN THE EARLY 00’S…….

    LOOK PEOPLE EMINEM SUCK………

    SINCE PROOF DIED EMINEM HAVEN’T BEEN THE SAME SINCE…..

    DON’T GET MAD…..

  • M.U

    Anyone Know of any website where i can see all of the International sales of Recovery ?

  • MxPredator

    K For those comparing sales to the Carter 3. Which is Waynes best selling in the first week lets compare to Ems best.

    TC3 – A lil bit over a milli Now only 3 milli US
    MMLP – over 1.76 Milli first week (Record) Now 9x milli US & 19 Milli Worldwide

    So Keep comparing we know who really is the best seller

  • ATLien

    Marshall Mathers LP did over a million first week, i’m one who doesn’t count sales as to how good the emcee’s are but theres a reason Tupac and Eminem are the highest selling rappers of all time, because they are beast’s.

  • WORD!!!

    Rebirth best album of all time…..Rebirth went platnium in a week…..yea bitches…..Who cares if eminem has the most albums sold for a rapper of all time

  • MxPredator

    Besides 600k now is a Milli for the past few years and Wayne Or no one for awhile will sell 600k In theses days so keep hating

  • teejay

    @aubrey stan

    You’re a cancer. Stop it. Everything you’ve been saying is utterly baseless.

    Please find me the eminem lyrics about hanging blacks

  • Shipp

    Oh, also, “WORD,” the Carter III’s first week sales were 1.05m, and according to these estimates these two albums combined will have about 1.2m first week sales.

    Let me also make a point in a similar way you made yours:

    GOD DAMN THERE SO MANY FLIL WAYNE IN HERE I’M ABOUT TO SWEAT DAMN…

    EMINEM SOLD ABOUT 70 MILLION MORE ALBUMS THAN LIL WAYNE!!!!

    OH THE GREAT BLACK HOPE HAS FAIL… HA! I’M A RACIST BIGOT!!!

  • Aubrey Stan

    @MxPredator Oh so now 600k is a millie. Faggot ass bitch. Didnt want to admit that shit when Drakes #’s came thru. Kill yourself you faggot ass bitch

  • MxPredator

    Rebirth = 176k first week lol
    your funny compare that to recovery cuz thats waynes latest album not C3

  • Aubrey Stan

    @teejay

    Actually I’m a gemini, now kill yourself bitch

    DONT HATE ON AUBREY STAN!!!!!!

  • no context

    Mmlp came out right before napster took off. It would never have done those sales 9 years later when the Carter 3 came out.

  • WORD!!!

  • ATLien

    @MxPredator

    The Marshall Mathers LP has sold 23 million worldwide and is the fastest selling album in the world.

    All you Wayne nuthuggers get off his dick. Pac has sold over 75 million worldwide and All Eyez On Me sold 5 million in the first 8 weeks, and it’s now certified 9x platinum. OutKast have sold over 50 million worldwide and Speakerboxx/TheLoveBelow has sold over 10 million, it’s now certified diamond. I could go on and on…

    I’m not saying sales count but all you Wayne nuthuggers that are comparing need to realise that there are far better emcee’s who have sold far more than Wayne. Learn hip hop…

    “If Drake can do 500,000 first week with his DEBUT, Eminem should be able to move much more than 600,000! Eminem’s global, people where I live have never heard of Drake.”

    Yes because the numbers you see are in the US only, Em always sells almost as much world wide as he sells in the US, hence the similar numbers even with Em’s worldwide fan base.

  • Young Money is straight Garbage

    @So Icy boi!

    Gucci is a joke. He can’t rap, people can’t even understand what he’s sayin…

    Sales don’t count but if ya’ll comparing sales then lets get to facts…

    Pac = 75 Million worldwide, All Eyez On Me did 5 million in 8 weeks, now 9x Platinum.

    Biggie = Life After Death sold over 10 million.

    Eminem = 80 million worldwide, Marshall Mathers LP did 1.79 million first week, now sold 23 million.

    OutKast = 50 million worldwide, Speakerboxxx/LoveBelow certified diamond.

    Jay-Z = sold over 40 million worldwide.

    Wayne is no where near these numbers, Carter III was a commercial record, Rebirth was his last album and that did fuck all sales wise. For those of you that think sales count, then you must be fans of Soulja Boy or 16 year olds.

    I’m sorry buy drake was suppose to be the best selling album this year he failed…..carter 3 was 2 years ago lil Wayne rebirth only did 160 with no competition his young money album only did 140…..eminem dropped an album while drake is still fresh out the gate with a 2 week leak and still bout to have the best selling debut/album of the year……so whether u like it or not its another win

    yall sound like some real fags with all this arguin…

    Your an idiot…he sounds so good live that you accused him of lyp singing. You just accidentally complimented him. “If Kobe’s so good, why doesn’t he score 81 again?” “If Roy Holladay is so good, why doesn’t he pitch a perfect game again?” Retard.
    You exemplify everything that a Wayne fan is with your remarks. And tell your boy to stop getting on tracks with Em…hes getting murked everytime.

    “Kanye wil go platinum next; fuck Eminem. I’m so tired. Eminem sells too many albums. It makes me so mad; he doesn’t deserve all that money.”

    Not because I want to help you, but because your writing is quite atrocious.

    If you’re not a racist, why did you start calling me a “white cracker?”

  • supppp

    You people are dense, for real. Eminem has the biggest WORLDWIDE following out of any hip-hop rapper, period. He is a household name, international status. Jigga might be selling out of NY, but he doesn’t sell records out of this country. When a rapper sells 80 million copies…. Consistently selling records over the span of ten years, you can’t talk shit..

  • Fat Boy

    @LIL WAYNE SET THE BAR TO HIGH FOR HIP HOP

    You mean Em set the bar to high for hip hop. Wayne is still 700k behind the record for not only hip hop but solo albums in all genres. And he’s also 300k behind The Eminem Show. Don’t come back with “that was 7-8 years” shit. It’s apart of history. It’s fact. It’s how it is. Deal with it.

  • Aubrey Stan

    btw, im a black chick from yonkers, dont try to get crazy. and why are drakes eyes so far apart from one another

    The only reason why he isn’t topping the carter 3 is because of the leaks….. You idiots. This album would of easily sold a milli the first week had it not been for the leaks. Ems the best period

  • Aaron

    Just a thought to throw out here to everybody…….Am I the only person who is more interested in the 2nd week numbers. We all knew Em and Drake would sell well(both totals/projections are impressive given todays industry). But, more impressive will be Drake doing 200-225k in the second week after the initial rush dies. A 50% decrease would result in 223k in week 2 for Drake. I bet he’ll drop 65-70%. Rember Get Rich or Die Tryin? 872k in the first 4 days(released on a Thursday), 811k in week 2. Those are some pretty incredible numbers. That’s about a 7% drop.

    You’re no different than the Eminem stans.

    Seriously though, when in an artist sells 600k a week and people call it a failure, that’s how you know people just hate to hate. For any other artist, that’s a success. Em is failing and still beating other artists out for a sales. That’s how you know the white boy is a monster.

  • Kory

    @j305 thanks man…I know a lot of black people who listen to em too, all this race stuff has got to end at some point…If em was black he would be just as good as rapper…the color of someones skin doesn’t matter.

  • Jo$h

    Aubrey Stan you may very well be mentally retarded. At what point in the song White America did you gather that Em was talking about “lynching” anybody? Em is hated by as many whites as he is blacks. He just so happens to have a loyal and rather large fanbase that dismisses everyone who hates him.

  • Fat Boy

    @Kory @ j305

    agree

  • truth

    Eminem has sold more than 70,000,000 (Yes 70 MILLION), Before Recovery*
    There are NO comparisons.

  • Shipp

    Actually, truth, it’s 80 million.

  • REAL TALK

    This is exactly the reason that Eminem stays so hot…there is ALWAYS discussion about this GOAT shit and whether the white boy deserves it or not. It’s not 1999 anymore!! The numbers speak for themselves. There’s no way an artist could last this long, while taking a four year hiatus, without being at least somewhat decent. These sales are still impressive whether you like it or not. Drake’s sales are extremely impressive for a debut artists. Drake can’t stop there though. He must continue in this success. After his 2nd or 3rd album we’ll be able to tell if he’s earned the respect that he gets

  • jke

    ya know for minute there, is someone bringin up gucci mane n lil wayne..someone wants to bring up carter 3 sold a mil..ok outta how many albums wayne has had..thats it..just one..should we do a comparison on album sales vs all 3..u kno who wins that..by miles.. Waynes boy Drake had 2 years of hype n mixtapes n features and the best he did the first week was less than 500K..Did a rapper by the name of 50 cent do 800k n plat the very next week his first album..didnt game outsell n lloyd banks outsell drake their first albums..until i c consistency from wayne or gucci for that matter..they fail in comparison to eminem..are yall serious haha.. tell gucci to rap about something other than the usual crap he attempts to rap about..n someone was right, eminem flopping is like mj not winning a title..haha never happened or is gonna happen

  • WOW

    DAMN THIS FUCKING WHITE BOY DON’T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO FLOP. IF HE HAD ONLY DONE SAY….300K-350K HE PROBABLY WOULDA RELAPSED AGAIN!!

  • So Icy Boi!

    @Roy its good sells but when u sell least then your previous release its a fail but you Eminem fans callin Drake album a fail wit 472K

  • CP

    *edit 80+ million. Go listen to the song “Classic” by Nas, Rakim, KRS-One & Kanye West produced by Dj Premier. Listen to Nas’ verse specifically….”O you went platinum – yeah that’s nice, now let me see you do the same thing twice. New times, 4 times, then been a couple of more times”

    1. why does everyone try to compare rappers like its your job? 2. Yeah we get it Lil Wayne sold a million in week 1 for C3…He’s not the only person to do it and holds no water because Em did twice.

  • http://www.watchyoursetup.com REAL FACTS

    TO DATE (aka AS OF TODAY!):

    Waynes best selling album was C3 and that sold 3.2 Million in the US

    Em’s WORST SELLING ALBUM(S) were Slim Shady LP and Encore, both of which sold 5.1 Million in the US

    GOGGLE IT BITCHES!

  • CP

    Why are we comparing Drake to Eminem…they are totally different. If anything Drake has a huge advantage…he had 2 years of the best hype money cant buy. Em didnt have an 1/8th of Drakes hype when he first came out. Em’s first official single was released the same day as the album went on sale debuting @ #2 selling only 283,000 copies…if anything you should compare So Far Gone to SSLP and thats more accurate. Drake is R&B with hiphop sprinkled in. Em is a lyricist/MC in hiphop. Drake has mass appeal.

  • Midnite

    @ all the so called # know it alls….82 million records sold and counting,artist of the decade,best lyricist to murder any other rapper on a track with him(check the stats).He just came back and knocked your R&B bitch Drake off the #1 spot so quick your tears can’t dry.Please haters,EM is what Wayne wishes he was.He also MERKS Wayne on every track he is on with him.Please don’t compare the 2…..Em+Mic=LEGEND!!!

  • Roy

    @Icy Boi

    I never said 472k for Drake was a fail. Pretty successful if you ask me.

  • jamie

    lil wayne fans who think his sales are better than eminems can suck a big dick. When it comes to sales SSLP>C3, MMLP>C3 TES>C3 Encore>C3 and you faggots are hyped up because carter 3 sold more than relapse and recovery first week? Did you forget about a little album called REBIRTH!!!???!? relapse sold MORE than 3 times more than rebirth first week. so what rebirth just doesnt count? for wayne to sell a million with c3 is impressive for sure, but to go from 1m to under 200 thousand on the next album is a fucking huge fall off. Eminem leaves the game for 5 years then comes and does 600k back to back, thats even more impressive. If you wayne dick riders want to talk about how wayne sold more consider this stat: carter 3 and rebirth when you COMBINE their first week sales did 1,180,000. If recover does 600k (which its on pace for) relapse + recovery will be 1,200,000. suck on that wayne dick riders.

  • tim

    eminem sold a million first week twice, but what people forget is that encore’s release got messed up, its first week #’s were based on only 3 days of sales. it did 1,585,000 in its first 10 days, so if it had a 6 day first week it easily could have done a milli. wayne on the other does a million, which is good for him, then falls off to 176k first week on his next record. his fans always talk about tha carter 3 and just pretend rebirth never happened. its a disgrace.

  • Josh

    I dont know why people keep saying Em cant do a mil. Em did it a long ass time ago and hasnt had an album that didnt go platinum since his first one, Infinite. Wayne will NEVER surpass Em for record sales. Em did 1.76 million in the first week with the Marshall Mathers LP. He has 6 straight number one albums. Wayne will NEVER do that. Stop comparing the two. Wayne will NEVER be where Em’s at, PERIOD. Wayne had the Carter 3 sell 1.005 mil in the first week and the rest of his albums havent sold anywhere near that. Em has been between 600,000 and a mil consistently since the beginning.

  • studiothug 2010

    wayne has only had one multi platinum his whole career!

  • Fat Boy

    @tim exactly only 3 days

  • allison

    Eminem as a solo artist has sold 70 million worldwide.
    D12 has sold 10 million worldwide
    the 8 mile soundtrack and the re up (compilation albums) also sold 10 million worldwide.
    add them up its 90 million. what lil wayne has sold like 10 million? good for him

  • For The Record

    I just want it to be clear that I like both Lil Wayne and Eminem. That said, for all these people that keep throwing out Tha Carter III first week numbers, look at the facts:

    The Marshall Mathers LP sold 1.76 copies it’s first week (which is the largest first week opening in hip hop history), and is certified Diamond.

    The Eminem Show sold 1.32 copies it’s first week (the second fastest selling hip hop album behind The Marshall Mathers LP), and is certified Diamond.

    Encore sold 760,000 in its shortened three day opening week due to bootlegging.

    So although Tha Carter III opening numbers were very impressive, all those saying that Em can’t compete with those numbers needs to do their research.

    just goes to show you that skill as an mc how far it will take you for people who think being lyrically mega skilled doesnt matter look at this guy man still selling albums like its 2000 while everyone else sweats for asher numbers

  • Thank Me Hater

    @CP so Em doesn’t have mass appeal? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Best post yet

  • BryceAyyy

    Hey word…dumb ass….tghe carter 3 sold more than relapse the first week right?
    Do your research and check out how much marshall mathers lp made first week in comparison to carter 3…..

    I like how you wait for em blog posts in order to comment. You call people who dig him stans and we sweat him yet you do the same you just play the opposite side of the fence. Yet you can never ignore his posts right? You sound like a jealous bitch that eminem didn’t pay any attention to so you hop on evrything he puts out with negative comments….

    Doesn’t this remind you of the last verse of ‘stan’ yall?
    Weak ass nigga…keep sweatin him, and he’ll keep showing you up.

  • Shade

    All these ppl talking Wayne with Carter 3 and shit. Remember MMLP? And TES? Hell I think Encore got close to 1 mill. Mmlp was what? 1.7? They $HIT on Carter 1,2 and 3. Get the fuck outta here.

    Grown Men arguing about other Grown Men, Am I the only one finding something wrong with this.

  • Willie_mcfly22

    “Wayne did a mili, 50 did a mili, ye too but what Em did was silly”….cmon this dude is the all time sellin artist of the 2000s,…no matter what he do this week he stil king!!…I applaud drake cuz it’s his debut but drake had to put in major work. Em came back from 5 years and stil did 600k last year first week sooooo….

  • bitchass

    Good sales. I wanted more though.

  • COURSE

    Beat ‘em all. RECOVERY deserve more compliment and sales.

  • slim 4 life

    you fag ass eminem haters are saying the same shit over and over again about the carter 3 , who cares he has 1 good sales album and hes been in the game longer than em has, but ems acomplished more that he has so fuck lil wayne and drake eminem is the goat ….over 80 million records sold and counting !!

  • bic boi

    i was hoping for more than that but i guess its alright im stilll hoping it does more than 700k

  • 200

    RECOVERY deserves more for such a sick ass album, go shady

  • blazen

    @WORD

    How are you going to compare Eminem’s record sales vs Lil Wayne’s? Eminem is highest selling rapper of all time… You should probably remove Wayne’s dick from you asshole then re think your statement hahaha.

  • I FUCK HOOKERZ AND JIZZ ON THEIR TITTIES

    wayne will never sell like he used to all the niggaz that bought the c3 were all hyped by his crazy good mixtapes he was droppin so they supported him after that he switched his shit and started rockin like he a rock star or sum .

  • Bryce Ayyy

    It’s funny how someone said Em’s a pop star, not a rapper…..
    yeeeeeet your so called ‘god’ Lil’ Wayne was begging Eminem to do a record with him and said in an interview on Semtex TV that ‘I can’t fuck with him(referring to going head to head in a battle)’

    You call him a pop star….
    yeeeeeet he killed moguls like Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Drake, Game, and every other artist that he’s featured on their track.

    hmmmmm guess pop is the best way to go then.

    and we’re living in the current day and age where leakages are at an ALL TIME HIGH.
    yet Eminem was outsold by that English Bitch. now think about if Eminem was only outsold last year by her…then how must these other rappers feel who couldn’t even reach the ‘wood’ mark their first week?Exactly.

    You want to compare Em to Wayne yet Em and Wayne had two entirely different marketing schemes as well as time spans for their videos.

    Waynes singles came out SEVERAL months ahead to give Wayne that hype and buzz he needed for his new music.

    Eminem puts his shit out about a month/month in a half in advance of his album.

    Guaranteed if Eminem put out Not Afraid. Love the Way You Lie(feat. Rihanna). and No Love(feat. Wayne) wisely through a 5 month period prior to his album release…we’d be seeing that 1mill bracket in one week be reached.

    That’s his label and marketing teams fault. Not his.
    Anyways, Eminem went platinum eventually anyone…no album of his has gone LESS than platinum.
    This one is guaranteed to be great.

  • assdad

    When did kanye sell a million? I thought his higest was in 07. Didnt grduation do 950,000? Where yall get a mill from?

  • drew who

    anyone who listens to gucci doesnt know what really hip hop is, sorry buds. and this album potentially would have sold a million but it leaked more than a week before the release. im pretty sure the carter 3 leaked a couple of days before the release.

  • CP

    @ Thank Me Hater….You obviously are taking this the wrong way. Mass Appeal in that Drake has more mass appeal than Eminem in terms of sales possibility. Drake automatically caters to both MEN & WOMEN and even has a wider age range who would listen to his music. Eminem is a lyricist in hiphop which DOES NOT cater to both men and women…Even though Em has “mass appeal” now he was never supposed to like Drake. Drake is deliberately trying to broaden his fanbase…Eminem’s MAJORITY of his records/tracks are for hardcore fans not the MASSES. Think about it with more of your brain power and you’ll get it.

  • six

    @ aubrey stan here we we go again you faggot ass bitch, did your name used to be toronto gangsta? cause i kinda fell like your that same homo i went in on last week. and i got at your bitch ass earlier today. on the other post your faggot ass was talking about you hate how people hateing on drakes pussy ass now look at you you funt little cunt, doing to the samne shit on a shady post, thats a real bitch move. in saying that every time i see you post on rap radar im going in on your punk pussy ass. you talkin shit about stans, bitch look at your name, you fuckin jew cum bucket, fall back and change your name again.

  • lil what?

    eminem is the best rapper alive mayb ever period! his sslp did 283k first week went 4x plat 6m world wide nd is now rankd #273 greatest albums ever..his mmlp did 1.79m in week one u.s alone. its in the guiness books of world records for fastest selling solo album of all time. it went 9x plat sold 19m worldwide and is now rankd at the top of best albums evr. emine show 1.32m week one 8x plat 19m worldwide and is #317 best albums ever. encore did 1.6 first two weeks 4x plat nd 11m world wide. relapse did 608k off his rebound nd was a great lyrical humorous album recovery well top that nd hell b bak as the king of hip hop again. he also sold 79m copies worldwide in the last decade makin him the artist of the decade dont forget he was off for 5 years lil wayne will never put up this resume hes a cock rag compared to eminem. eminem will most likely put out 3 to 4 more solid albums makin him a questionable number one of best rappers ever with biggie pac nas nd jay z

  • word

    @ lil what? ur damn right dawggg fukin ems third album sold mor than waynes biggest album sale carter 3 i think he only did 1.2 waynes a bitchhh

  • been

    @ Blazen and to think he did it without auto tune or pretending to play guitar, oh and without EVERY SONG being about money clothes cars women and fame.

  • Roy

    I know why some people don’t like this album. They like the raw Em from SSLP and MMLP. They don’t like music artist Em. I prefer both. People like me will like this album. To me, this album has the perfect balance between raw lyricism, honesty, and reflection. Although the album music wise sounds mainstream, he didn’t sacrifice his lyrics. He’s still Em on this album. People just want an album full of Almost Famous and On Fire. And that’s cool. I don’t blame any of you. When Em spits raw shit, it’s like “holy shit”. But I like both sides of Em so it’s whatever.

  • El Asesino

    umm
    somebody is wrong… because if I recall correctly…. Relapse outsold EVERY album that came out last year… except (Susan Boyle) and seriously… does she really count??? So did Carter 3 sale good… DAMN STRAIGHT… it sold GREAT… but did Relapse numbers turn out to be more than Carter 3??? Yup!!!

  • ubitch

    BOTH ARE GREAT ARTISTS

    @Jermaine – these stats are just for the USA. Eminem will easily be double to tripple platinum WORLD WIDE by the end of the week, just like how Drake went plat in Canada, but did less in the USA.

    @El Asesino—yes, Susan Boyle counts.

  • Shiftynick212

    Drake’s first full-length album, Thank Me Later, enters The Billboard 200 at #1, with first-week sales of 447,000. This constitutes one of the biggest openings ever for the debut album by a rap artist. It’s bigger than Eminem’s first week with The Slim Shady LP in February 1999 (283,000). It’s even bigger than Kanye West’s first week with The College Dropout in February 2004 (441,000). And today’s sales climate is less favorable now than it was back then (to put it mildly)..

    Only three debut albums by rap artists have had had bigger first weeks than Thank Me Later just achieved. 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ sold 872,000 copies in its first week in February 2003. Snoop Doggy Dogg’s Doggystyle sold 803,000 copies in its first week in November 1993. Puff Daddy & the Family’s No Way Out sold 561,000 copies its first week in July 1997. (Note: 50 Cent’s album was preceded six weeks earlier by an album, Guess Who’s Back?, on another label, but it was his official debut, as this is Drake’s.).

    Drake has 13 songs on this week’s Hot Digital Songs chart. That’s more than Justin Bieber and the cast of Glee combined. (Those two pop powerhouses were good for four and seven charted songs, respectively, this week.) Eleven of Drake’s 13 charted songs are from Thank Me Later..

    Thank Me Later rang up the third biggest one-week sales tally of 2010, trailing only Sade’s Soldier Of Love (502,000) and Lady Antebellum’s Need You Now (481,000). It’s the biggest one-week total for a debut album since Susan Boyle’s I Dreamed A Dream opened in November with sales of 701,000. It’s the biggest one-week total for a rap album since Jay-Z’s The Blueprint 3 bowed in September with sales of 476,000. .

    But Drake shouldn’t get too comfortable in the top spot. Eminem’s Recovery is expected to debut at #1 next week with sales well above 500,000. .

    Drake’s album sold almost as many copies in its first week as his EP So Far Gone has sold since its release in September. So Far Gone has sold 485,000 copies. The music industry has been pushing EPs as a possible way of coping with declining album sales, but the fact that Drake’s album sold nearly as many copies in one week as his EP has sold in nine months may give industry gurus pause. Fans seem to view EPs as a nice bonus for hot acts, but not as an album replacement..

    For that matter, the fact that 447,000 fans bought Thank Me Later in its first week suggests that the album format isn’t as moribund as its detractors have been saying. The music industry is caught between its past and its future and doesn’t seem to know how to get across the divide..

    Thank Me Later sold 103,000 digital copies. This is the third time in the past four weeks that an album has sold 100K digitally..

    Incidentally, Drake and Susan Boyle may well be in competition for Best New Artist when the Grammy nominations are announced later this year. If Drake were to win the award, he would be the first rap artist to win since Arrested Development in February 1993

    Expected alil more..

  • Kurf

    Alright, let me set this straight. For the Vs Drake:
    Drake had a great debut. No it wasn’t 50 or snoop numbers because the sales are down. It was a great debut, but often people with huge debuts fall quickly. Look at 50. Seven albums in and Em has debuted over 500,000 with 6 and a milli with two.
    Vs. Wayne:
    Yes the Carter 3 sold a million. But his last album sold 170,000. You can blame it on being a rock album, but look at linkin park, They sold 700,000 first week. So no excuse to sell that much. Wayne watered himself out by appearing on everything and doesnt have the same hype anymore. Carter 3 sold a million, but if you want to bring up old shit then Em has sold a million in a week three times.
    So compare the 2010 albums of everybody.
    Em- Recovery- 600,000
    Drake- Tml- 500,000
    Wayne- Rebirth- 150,000

    Em wins this, yall give up.

  • Dylan

    Eminem has done incredible numbers and his lyrics are insane…eminem’s worst album will be remembered longer than drake or lil wayne’s come on…stop hating on him he’s the best out there and your favorite rapper isn’t fucking with him…just give it up eminem has a worldwide fan base and in 10 years no1 will be talking about drake or lil Wayne…RECOVERY album of the year!!!

  • fags

    you guys are dumb comparing eminem’s recovery to lil waynes carter 3.. lets see exactly how carter 4 does in 2011 or when the fuck ever, u fuckin retards dont seem to realize eminem is the highest selling ARTIST (not just hip hop) of the fuckin decade. lil wayne in all his career will never sell more albums than Em. it just aint possible at this point. i think all wayne dick riders are like 12.. they dont seem to know any real facts or even understand reality at all. and to the fag that keeps sayin gucci mane’s last album sold more than recovery.. are u retarded? you do realize it only sold 89,000 its first week and still only about 370,thousand total right?? if im not mistaken i believe even the rookie drake sold more than that first week.. gtfo

    Wow ok C3 is triple platinum? Ok Recovery will overtake it sometime next year.

  • Eminem=king

    Eminem is the best MC out there. Lil wayne is garbage he raps about the same pointless crap over and over. Im sick of hearing the same line in everysong “Weezy F Baby”. He is absolute trash. His lyrics blow, he rhymes the worst sh** and it doesn’t even make sense. Eminem atleast has a story to his songs, great metaphors, awesome flow and he just spits hard.

    Lil wayne has sold 10m albums over the past 10 years
    Eminem has sold 64 million

  • Shadddup.

    Fact is if you want to compare Em’s and Lil’ Gayne’s sales (they both started their mainstream careers in 1999) but all of Lil’ Gayne’s albums to date haven’t sold as much as Em’s MMLP alone worldwide.

    So really, don’t play the numbers game if you’re gonna involve Eminem. The man is untouchable.

    Best album since TES

  • Eminem4Life

    LOL!!! Wayne didn’t set any bar dumb ass….. yes, his carter 3 sold 1.3 million its first week. BUT EMINEM’S FRIST ALBUM Slim Shady LP some 1.3 mill its first week as well, Then his 2d album the Marshal Mathers Lp sole 1.7MILLION!!! its first week and made it the fastest selling rap album of all time. Know your facts… and when wayne dropped the carter 3 it was right before the economy went to shit, that album would NEVER sell 1.3 in today’s shit economy….THE END>
    EMINEM= The highest selling rapper in history…..

  • CP

    @Eminem4Life Not trying to discredit your analysis but SSLP didnt sell 1.3 million in its first week. It sold 283K and thats because no one really knew who Em was when he released his first album. The hype for Em happened after he released his first single which was released the same day as his album dropped. You cannot compare Eminem’s debut first week with Drakes!! Drake had the best hype you could get and he sold less than 500K first week. Im sure alot of you who are posting about this really werent paying attention in 99′.

  • Shady4Life

    He’ll beat the Carter any day. Besides..those sales were wack anyway..He getting sued for shit he didn’t write! How many lawsuits are there now..lost count.

    Em stays on point and his metaphors make sense. Unlike “Cheesy” I mean Wheezy..
    I guess he’s trying to use somekind of dictionary now..

    Em foever! No other Ninja can take him down!!!!!

    Em is Hip Hop!

  • Black 3mo Banana

    for all you wayne idiots these arent real numbers there an estimate and you dumbasses clingin to the carter 3 em did more with mmlp and what about rebirth? that shit flopped eminem is better than anybody else he sold more than wayne and always will sell more if they had beef em would slaughter him hands down

  • http://twitter.com/propismusic ProP

    If yall dont know Recovery numbers have increased to 784,000 first week

  • dubles

    NOT TO MENTION, Relapse may not have won the first week sales against Carter 3, but as of right now, Carter 3 is Triple Platinum and SO IS Relapse…

    And to make matters WORSE, Lil Waynes latest album, REBIRTH only sold 175K first week…. Eminem RE-RELEASED Relapse (Relapse: Refill) and THAT sold 127k first week, lmao, Em was keepin up wit Wayne by re-releasing a CD that was already out for 6 Months… yall are fuckin’ clowns tryna compare EM and WAYNE

    Wayne Jus started bein’ thought of as a top dude, he been droppin albums since the 90’s, Em was considered the Best out the gate, yall are some ignorant fans, read up, learn shit…

    Drake jus crushed Wayne, but look @ drake, hes had ‘best i ever had’ ‘bedrock’ ‘successful’ ‘every girl’, he did ‘money to blow’ he dropped ‘its over’ i mean jesus christ… dude had like 8 songs in constant rotation before he dropped his album, he SHOULDA sold MORE than jus 462k

    but at the end of the day, all it took for em was 1 single and the hype of it being “eminems new album” and he jus shit on every one of your fav. rappers, from the whole young money to even jay z…

    REALITY CHECK!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jakefromthebean jakefromthebean

    im just gonna say this to say it…..way too many people judge a rapper or artist for that matter by their first week sales. I’m not gonna sit here and act like they dont matter at all but if you like the cd and you think its dope than you should just give credit where credits due. All in all this cd is so fucking dope it makes me remember why i love eminems music….furthermore this shit is the BEE’S KNEE’S!!!!!!!

  • dubles

    ok so here’s the facts, i looked it up

    EMINEM:
    -Slim Shady LP: 6 Million
    -Marshall Mathers LP: 19 Million (1.76 Million 1st Week, Guiness World Record)
    -Eminem Show: 19 Million (1.32 Million 1st Week)
    -8 Mile Soundtrack: 9 Million (702k 1st Week, 507k 2nd Week)
    -Encore: 11 Million
    -Curtain Call (The Hits): 5 Million (441k 1st Week, 324k 2nd Week)
    -The Re-Up: 1.45 Million
    -Relapse: 3 Million (Relapse: Refill 127k 1st Week)
    -Recovery: On track to sell 600k + 1st Week

    nobody in hip hop has a resume like that, not to include an oscar winning movie (8 Mile)

    NOW, LIL WAYNE:
    -The Block Is Hot: 1 Million
    -Lights Out: 500k
    -500 Degreez: 500k
    -The Carter: 1 Million
    -The Carter 2: 2 Million (but only 244k 1st Week)
    -Like Father Like Son (With Birdman): 762k (126k 1st Week)
    -The Carter 3: 3.2 Million (1.005 Million 1st Week)
    -We Are Young Money: 500k (142k 1st Week)
    -Rebirth: 500k (176k 1st Week)

    the stats are incomparable… and to the idiot that mentioned Gucci Mane
    -Back To The Traphouse didn’t even go Gold
    -The State vs. Radrick Davis: it hasnt gone Gold either, selling 89k 1st week and 329k total, thats his career high

    as for Em vs Drake… Drake shoulda sold ATLEAST 500k, ALLLL DAY he’s had more/been on more singles than anyone ever before dropping an album
    -Replacement Girl ft. Trey Songz
    -Invented Sex w/ Trey Songz
    -Forever ft. Lil Wayne Kanye and EMINEM
    -Every Girl
    -Successful
    -Bedrock
    -Over
    -Best I Ever Had
    -Money To Blow
    -Im Goin In
    -Digital Girl Remix (w/Jaime Foxx)
    -4 My Town (w/Birdman, 2nd single off Priceless)
    -Say Something w/Timbaland
    -he was on BLUEPRINT 3 with JAY Z on ‘Off That’
    -he did ‘Fed Up’ with DJ Khaled
    -Unthinkable w/Alicia Keys

    i mean WTF, how did yall expect this dude to not sell??? REALLY???

    but, Em outsold him with 1 single, and not to mention Em’s album leaked 3 weeks early, and he still held it down

    im done

    all the carters put together dont even come up to one of his albums the marshall mathers lp,,,,hi worse album has sold just ass much as all the carters and hes sold 2 1/2 million in tooo weeks soo hes sole more than lil wayne period

  • Yll . EM!

    Don’t compare Lil wayne to EMINEM guys.. lil wayne is just human. Can’t compare a human to Eminem.

  • YG Preach

    You succas is dumb. Em is a loser, he aint no body. Only reason he always sells so much is because white people buy his album because he’s a white rapper. Black people in america only make up 12% of the population. And aint no black folks buyin that whack shit!!!! The only reason he is overated is because white people glorify him HAHAAA!!! He aint nuthin but a cracca tryna get rich off black folks culture. He’s weak!!!! and all these bloggers kissin Em’s ass on here is cuz they white too!!! lol, succas, but we got some brainwashed house negroes on here kissin his ass too, kill yaself

  • Charles

    He wont top Tha carter 3, but Lil Wayne will never top “The Marshal Mather LP”

  • Nay

    @Word!!, @MC

    i think Lil Wayne would get some credit for selling his albums IF HE WROTE HIS OWN LYRICS!!!!!!!!!!
    he is a fucking pussy he had gilly da kid and drake most of his song !!!!!!!

    Eminem does it HIMSELF !!!!!!

  • Nay

    everyone who thinks lil wayne is better than eminem, well lets look at TOTAL first week sales…

    http://rapnewscenter.blogspot.com/2009/04/best-rapper-alive-week-1.html

  • Nay

    what is that?? lil wayne at 9.3? where is eminem?? 29.5??

    lil wayne cant sell albums like eminem

  • 8xllet

    As Jay-Z said, He couldn’t even imagine being as successful as Eminem, iMean you guys are all talking about Lil’ Wayne (which by the way is one of my favorite rappers) out selling Eminem, &nd being better, then look at the Marshall Mathers LP, &nd why is Lil’ Wayne constantly wanting a song with Eminem?? Because Eminem on anyones record &nd their album sells easily another couple hundred thousand copies…

  • matt

    Dont bring up numbers when comparing wayne to Em. 80 million records worldwide for Em. 3 million for the Carter 3. Did rebirth even get a million? New reports say sales will be about 700-750k for Recovery, which is about what I expected. I really hope to god this outsells the Carter 3. I think it will outsell 3 million when its all over. But the economy sucks compared to when the Carter 3 came out. Lil Wayne sucks!! Single syllable rhyming, no internal rhyme schemes, no meaning!!! Lil Wayne and Young Money is the problem with rap today!!! They ruined it!! I will admit that his verse on No Love was probably the best he’s ever spit, but Em still blew him out of this world.

  • Nikko

    U stupid ass ppl eminem did 1.8 mil in one week with marshell mathers lp so he did a milli b4 Wayne was even thinking of taking gillies style stupid get ya facts straight

  • BOBBY B

    Marshal Mathers LP–1.7 million first week , diamond
    The Carter 3– 1 million first week , triple platnium

    Im not even going to begin to compare the other albums because i would be wasteing everyones time

  • Eroberson

    Eminem has sold a million copies the first week twice and wayne once. Eminem has over 80 million records sold wayne barely 10-12. Lil wayne has so much hype Eminem doesn’t. A yeah the Carter III sold 3 million the relapse (which a lackluster effort for Eminem) sold 5 million. Why are we comparing the resumes of Eminem and lil wayne that’s insulting to Eminem and lil wayne has been rapping in the spotlight 2 years longer than Em. comeon, ah yeah Kanye, 50, and Nelly have outsold Lil wayne, what about rebirth( a yeah it took Eminem to make the album worth any damn thing.)

  • Eroberson

    A yeah for the dumbass who says Eminem sells records only because he’s white, I’m black and I think he’s the greatest rapper of all time. When wayne, and Jay-Z do songs like: Stan, so beautiful, Lose yourself, cleaning out my closet, sing for the moment, and Not afraid.

  • blahh

    ppl who even try to compare lil wayne to eminem are retarded. eminem holds the record for most albums sold in a week. worldwide in a week it was about 10 million enough said. eminem is the better lyricist, and the much better freestyler just check out their tim westwood freestyles. eminem murders every single track hes on such as forever and drop the world and no love. i wish eminem decided to diss wayne and put his ass to sleep. its basically young money vs eminem, g-unit, dr dre, dmx, obie trice, and maybe some d12. who wins diss battle? the answer is obvious

  • Kels

    Wayne did a milli, 50 did a milli, Usher did a milli, Eminem did a milli twice!

  • matt

    Wayne set the bar!!?!? wtf….back in the day, the marshall mather lp sold over a mil the first day son, do your homework..

  • faggot ass WORD!!

    eminem’s one of the greatest selling srtists of all time. you people are idiots.. eminem lyrics about lynchin blacks? wtf are you talking about you idiot. and whoever put up them wayne lyrics, wow, u really nailed it on that one. got us good fucker. wayne’s garbage. “they cant stop me, even if they stopped me.” doesnt even make sense? if you really wana compare two rappers, wouldnt it make sense to put em on the same beat and see who spits better? eminem and biggie, dead wrong. em killed biggie. em and jayz, renegades, em took that song too. em and tupac, one day at a time.. eh thats hard. EM AND WAYNE, FOREVER, DROP THE WORLD, NO LOVE.. EMINEM MURDERED WAYNE ON EVERY ONE OF THEM. fuck he murdered drake and kanye while he was at it. no one will ever top eminem. sorry guys :/ wayne’s garbage, lol he gives hip hop the worst name. hes a rapper/rocker? tupac never did a rock album. wayne’s an idiot and hasn’t completed a song since c2. c3 was fuckin garbage, it was like listenin to my dog shit on himself. PHONE HOME.. are you kidding me? em don’t disappoint. and AUBREY WHITE you are one dumb fuckin nigger. keep talkin shit, you sound so scary on the internet. and tellin ppl to buy rebirth to support real hip hop? its not even a hip hop album! go listenin to gucci and soulja boy or watever it is u fuckin listen to. idiot

  • to YG..

    and YG, em has a bigger fan base than wayne, jay, or any rapper alive. thats why he sells more

  • Defama

    Fuck all this back and forth. I’m a Weezy fan but why do people keep acting like he was the first and only artist to sell a milli?? Shit’s been done by more than a few artists in different genres.

    Follow this link to get the numbers.

    http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/news/2005-03-09-50-cent-sales_x.htm

    Lil Wayne has the fan base to sell a milli again with Carter 4. However in this economy its doubtful. My hat goes of to him if he does.

    follow me on twitter @ Dfama

  • The Architect

    If you aint heard the album yet, then don’t criticize. Recovery is a classic, the lyricism is simply fire. I had to go to three stores to find it. Recovery was sold out in almost every spot i went to. This album is going to put up numbers. Whoever compares lil wayne to eminem is out of there damn minds. Lil wayne is a recorder artist which means he carries a digital recorder in his pocket around with him every where he goes to put down a song. Eminem came up in the game when you were white people would hate on you for even being in the crowd. For a white boy to go into the rap olympics and conquer that shit is amazing. Lil wayne isn’t a battle artist and in my perspective battle artist’s are the most ruthless to mess with. Eminem is the best rapper in the game right now. Compare a recorder artist to a battle artist. The game has become to kiddy to remember what a good battle artist was. EVERYONE REMEMBER BIGGIE WAS A BATTLE ARTIST b4 you say shit. Eminem is the greatest battle artist of our time and so I think he has earned the right to be called a LEGEND.

  • Joe

    You dumb asses do u even know what an mc is. Eminem is a writer he writes for maad artists in the industry. Hes a lyricist. Hes a real mc look up his freestyles. Lil’ wayne sucks compared to eminem listen to drop the world no love and forever remix eminem murks anyone he faces dummys. Listen to renegade. You wanna talk numbers look up slim shady lp marshal mathers lp eminem show encore relapse then recovery and don’t forget obies first lp he produced and 50s debut he produced with dr. dre lmao .. dummies he is hip hop lil’ wayne knows it to haaha . Listen to his freestyle over that over song by drake and beamer benz or bentley he eats drake up. He’s a beast. Lil’ wayne had two successfull albums dummies. Hes commercial as fuck. Autotune. Eminem grew up in the D bitch respect the king. And drake is a bitch haaha . Most Rap hip hop sales of all time talk about those numbers talk about MM lp lol or Eminem Show oh yea look up d12 numbers to and curtain calls and the re up…

  • GTFOH

    How much did waynes last album sale???? Ya’ll shut up pleaz! Besides if you wanna go that route MMLP sold more than Wayne so get outta here with that shit lames.

  • MrMadMike

    stfu The Eminem Show did 1.3 million first wee k and it was wack so go some fuccin where talkin bout the CARTER 3 sales……same fan base fucc Wayne

  • ripthetube

    how come the carter 1-2 never did a milli in the first week, i dont think i cant count how many of ems albums did a milli in the first week, eminem has sold almost 100mill wayne and em have been doing in around the same time they both came out around the same time, but wayne is still not even close to 100mill in record sales eminem last two albums put together rapes wayne last 2 albums in sales put together so you people still hung on waynes dick for album that was pormoted right and most likely will never happen again, all i wanna is know is when waynes next album only sells 160,000 what excuse are you bitch asses gonna make up with hahaa and you wayne has to put the title carter on his album to make it sell any other title would ruin him, hahaa he needs a title to sell his album,

  • smuggler

    yo eminem is the best rapper out his new shit is banging real hip hop fan’s know’s it and for any boby out that said weezy c3 is the shit is fucking weezy cuz that is nothing him drake and the rest of young money is killing hip hop eminem is going to bring it back but not buy him self saluter house is real hip hop so go back and listen 2 a nigga that kiss a dude in the lip’s fucking fag’s

  • MilliSama

    LOL at these WEEZY NUTHUGGERS!! You dont wanna talk numbers with Em… when Wayne gets a DIAMOND ALBUM then he can talk… and you talkin about Stannery..

    THE SLIM SHADY LP= 5 MIL WW (4 MIL US)
    MARSHALL MATHERS LP=10.5 MIL WW (9 MIL US)
    THE EMINEM SHOW= 1 MIL FIRST WEEK (BEFORE WAYNE AND JAY SO SHUT UP) 8 MIL US
    ENCORE= 4 MIL (700 K first week)
    RELAPSE=5 MIL WW
    8 MILE SOUNDTRACK= 3.2 MIL (700 first week)

    NOW LETS DO WAYNE

    THE BLOCK IS HOT= 2 MIL
    LIGHTS OUT= BARELY GOLD
    500 DEGREES= BARELY GOLD
    THE CARTER= 1 MIL
    THE CARTER 2= 2 MIL (BUT ONLY 230 K FIRST WEEK)
    THE CARTER 3= 2 MIL (AFTER SELLING ITS “FIRST MIL” THE FIRST WEEK LMAO)
    REBIRTH= FLOP!!!!

    EM= USHERED MULTIPLATINUM ALBUMS WITH D-12 (2) AND ONE PLATINUM FROM OBIE TRICE… LETS NOT TALK 50’S SUCCESS

    WAYNE= WE ARE YOUNG MONEY DIDNT EVEN SELL 300 K AND DRIZZY ONLY GOLD RIGHT NOW…

    get the hell out of here wayne aint even in the same galaxy as Eminem… do ur fuckin math 24 and a half million albums versus what 8… thats over 3 times as many albums as Wayne sold… deal with it… and it dont matter how much em do his first week… if you sell a million albums ur first week and since june 2008 u until today you have only sold a million more… ur a flop hands down… it took wayne 2 years to sell another million albums

  • MilliSama

    sorry i forgot the eminem show… thats 32 MILLION SOLO RECORDS!!! The Eminem Show sold more albums than all of waynes combined… and thats not even his highest selling album!!!

  • Mandy

    yea carter 3 did a mill in a week big whoop. wayne had to be in 100 music videos to do it (yes 100, either featuring or just in the background) he also got a lot of radio play.
    Eminem:
    -little radio play (still sells)
    -doesn’t feature in everyone’s songs (still sells)
    -doesn’t get on everyones music videos (still sells)
    -over 80 million records sold worldwide (artist of the decade, best rapper alive according to vibe poll, OVER wayne and jay-z)
    -the marshall mathers lp is the fastest selling album by a solo artist ever
    -the eminem show SOLD over 2.5 MILL IN FIRST TWO WEEKS! thats over a mill a week!
    gayne can’t even compare

  • d-bro

    Lets look at facts: Em had two albums that out sold Carter 3 in first week ( Marshall Mathers LP and Eminem Show) and Lil W followed Carter 3 with a VERY average first week with Rebirth. Look, they both are beasts but if we are just talkin about album sales then there is just on King: Shady

  • Trelliematrix

    for the dude who said the only person that could do a mili in a week….what the fuk??? u gotta understand eminem BEEN doin those numbers, marshall mathers lp is the highest sellin rap album EVER!!!! and still is today!! and that sold 1.8 mill its first week! then eminem show sold a mill its first week, then 8 mile sold 4, encore 5, and and relapse 2 mill. wayne just accomplished what em accomplisheed YEEEEAAAARS ago. wayne only got that mill that week cuz he had no album out, was on everyones song, and had mixtapes out da azz……hmmmm how good did rebirth do?? 140,000?????????? super fall off. what eminem cd doesnt go platinum in 2 weeks?? get it right homie. em been there done that. none of this shit is new to him.
    6 albums and he’s over 80 mill. wayne has 7….and only sold like 15, hell i’ll say 20 which obviously is false but eminem is legend.

  • Trelliematrix

    oh yea!! dont even much talk about accomplishments, that makes eminem the god of rap
    11 grammies!!!!!!!! not BET award, not Vibe award, not HipHop award, but grammies!!!!
    an oscar, over 80 mill, books, a movie, named biggest hiphop artist of all time by rolling stone which is very very credable, artist of the decade, my god eminem has been runnin the rap game since 2000!!!! if wayne was sooooooooooooooooo amazing how is it that after tha carter 3, he went back to his normal sales???? why couldnt he keep that buzz goin as long as eminem?? daaaaamn not even 2 years could he keep up that fire?? that goes to show u, its a different between actual talent and a hot artist. eminem aint no ole “ooooo he gotta hot single out he’s my favorite rapper now” he’s earned his fans!!! my sister was like “im gettin that drake album!!!!!! i love the SINGLES im gon tell everyone at my job to get it” she sampled it….and lets just say that there is not a drake album in her possession. hot artist= temporary, talent= forever

  • wayne sucks

    Just cause Lil Wayne sold a million doesnt make him a good rapper. Sales mean nothing. Miley Cyrus sells, is she a good artist? What about Kesha? Gucci, Wayne, anyone in young money? No, they all suck. Rap has been taken over by people who just throw in catchy lines here and there and teenagers say “OHHHH that shit was FIREEE!!” No, false, it was not fire at all. To me, any rapper that has an equal ratio of girls to guys liking him (Wayne) or more girls liking him than guys(Drake), is clearly not a good rapper. If you listen to Eminem’s album compared to anything else on the radio, you can tell it is nothing like anything you hear today, save for love the way you lie (still a good song by the way because the lyrics are good and mean something). He tried pretty hard with this album to adapt and not sellout which he did a damn good job of. (the production is pretty mainstream, but his lyrics blow anything in the mainstream out of this world). He still easily outsold Drake first week, in fact Drakes first 2 weeks sales wont touch Em’s first week sales. People say that Em should outsell Drake more because it was his debut. Lets get real here, technically it was his debut, but Thank me Later had more hype of any hip hop album in years. Nobody thinks of Drake as a newcomer right now, hes been on the radio constantly for over a year now, he just didn’t have an album out.

  • Crimerate14

    The martial mathers LP sold 1.8 million in it’s first week. So y’all shut up about the Carter 3 and respect eminem, fan or not, he sold 80 million records in the last 10 years.

  • http://None Fukdanigs

    All you dumb fucking niggers that worship a 5’6 guy kissing midget Wayne are fucking fags u say he can’t top Carter 3 Carter 3 which was average at best answer this u fucking niggers how much did warned last piece of shit sale about 150k ahahhahahahaahaha lmao a 150k!!!! Come to terms niggers a white man owns all of your nigger rap idols

  • http://None Fukdanigs

    Eminem = diamond and Wayne = triple platinum hahahahahahaha u black nigger fucks

  • Undercovermc

    I’m laughing at you dumb ass Lil Wayne fans who think sales mean something as far as artistic quality is concerned. If sales meant something, then Nelly and other high selling garbage rappers would be considered the GOATs. Eminem is better than Lil Wayne — who sold a milli more recently doesn’t factor into it. I’m black and I can admit that because it’s the truth. There are so many stupid, BET watching, pseudo hip-hop fans on this site. SMH.

  • SmartOne

    hey MC smart one… he outsold Carter 3 with Marshall Mathers LP and Eminem Show in the first week lol… wayne is the new kid on the block compared to Em lol

  • bMoney

    @ Shipp Who cares about Lil Wayne’s Old Ass Album The Carter III Sales, How did Rebirth do in the first week? If you really want to go back in time, Eminems 1st three albums way out sold The Carter III buy like 20 million records you dumb fuck. Relapse is triple platinum and anyways CDs don’t sell like they did 3 years ago, Lil Wayne will never sell that many records in his first week again. Young Money is garbage and you know the only real person getting paid is Star Head aka Bird Man & not paying any artist shit. Auto-Tune Rap is TRASH and outdated. Lil Wayne & Drake groupies make me sick… Freaking Homo’s!

  • http://yahoo.com rapindicator

    yo dumbass saying he cant top the carter3! how about the carter 3 trying to top the marshall matters cd that did 1.7 mil bitch and broke records that will never be beaten!

  • Aaaaaaaaaa

    @word
    eminems mmlp sold more than all of lil waynes record sales combined

  • erame

    I”m pretty sure that eminem outsold carter lll on every one of his first four albums all selling atleast five mil each where carter lll only sold three mil. And btw i downloaded the rebirth for free listened to it, then deleted every song except drop the world because it was garbage.

  • chance

    Lil Wayne didn’t “sell” a million copies. Numbers are actually based on shipped. Cash Money over shipped The carter 3 to make Lil wayne seem to sell “a milli” not hating, it was tight, but dont believe the bullshit

  • Mesh

    when lil wayne sells as many albums as the King has then talk about stats buddy.

  • JT

    Yall are slow lil wayne the carter 4 isn’t going to do nuthng. Didn’t yall see the rebirth sales?? They was a big ass flopp!!!!!!!! I mean he did a milli first week wit the carter 3 and jus barely did 100 thousand with the rebirth

  • Trelliematrix

    @TO THE GUY WHO SAID LIL WAYNE SET THE BAR TO HIGH FOR HIP HOP……

    eminem set the bar!!!!!! look at lil wayne hes has 7 albums out and is only like 10 million sold. eminem is 80 million!!! how the fuck did wayne set any bar??? if thats the case then y did rebirth only sell hundred somethin thousand???? who drops 800,000 sells less??????????????? eminem relapse sold 608,000 BUT recovery sold 741,000. he went UP!!! lil wayne isnt even hot anymore, aint like he doin what he did 06-08. that buzz is over theres no more hype round him. im sicka people sayin wayne set shit. its bout time wayne even actually did those numbers!!!! he been out to long too eminem 2nd and 3rd cd went platinum in the first week. stop being a dumb ass em has 11 grammies, and an oscar. EMINEM set the bar!!!!!!! waaaaaaaaaaay too high. cuz i guarentee carter 4 gon only do like 300,000 if that. everybody thought drake was gon go platinum when he couldnt even make gold. eminem set the bar and its too late for anyone to top what he did

  • ASSHOLE

    TO THE PEOPLE SAYIN EM CANT TOP LIL WAYNE-HES COOL BUT HIS MUSIC FUCKIN SUCKS EVERY SINCE THE FIRST CARTER REAL TALK

    Marshall Mathers LP (1.79 Million Copies sold first week)
