  • Belize

    thanks to drake with the aston martin music song lol rozayyyyyyyyyyyyy

  • Black Shady

    I aint mad. He had a couple bangers on that. Congrats

  • http://www.facebook.com/chris.searl Chris Searl

    It’s weird, his best album was the only one to not go #1, and sold the least

  • lenox

    thats pretty terrible considering it did 176k the first week. 325k in 16 weeks give or take a week or 2. wow ross you sell 2000 copies a week, with all the promotion involved in the project i would consider this a failure of huge proportions, you finally made back what you spent in your marketing budget, and you thought you knocked marshall from the top.

  • Boggz

    ROZAY!!!!!

    ITS ACTUALLY NOT QUITE GOLD BUT WILL GIVE IT TO HIM.

    BOSS

    Took this shit long enuff…that equals fail to me. U should b goin gold in atleast 3 months

  • Boggz

    Allhiphop.com Posted this nov. 3/10
    Rick Ross’ fourth album, Teflon Don, also moves up, from 42 to 38, by selling 9,316 copies. Ross has sold 452,954 copies to date.

    Cant see him selling 50,000 in two days.

  • http://www.twitter.com/ridalen ridalen

    @willie_mcfly22 you do realize its not 2003 anymore, right? Gold is the new platinum. Why you think Em only sold 2.3 mil? In ’03 that woulda been a flop for him.

  • BK

    @ridalen

    It’s 2.8 mil but what’s 500K huh? Well…

  • polo kid

    Bullshit! This is a classic. Should be platinum!

  • ESCO

    Is this another premature fail for Officer Ricky?

    Ship = doesn’t mean sold. Otherwise Taylor Swift would claim she did 2x platinum first week, considering she shipped 2 million copies.

    Remember when Ricky thought he had the #1 album in the country, celebrated prematurely on twitter, and when the real results came out Eminem’s 5th week beat him? That was a classic moment.

    This isn’t close to that type of fail, but it’s juts clutching and quite embarassing.

  • WORKWORK

    Unless Puff got different #’s TD is at 450 something wit 9 thousand sold last week. BTW when you got everybody who’s hot on your album and you struggling for gold I ain’t impressed

  • Belize

    @Haters are annoying: Lay off my dick, but thanks for keeping my name alive you obsessed stalker! Bitch!

    Anyway, 9 months and only GOLD? That’s embarrassing. Hardly even news.

  • jacob

    Checked the numbers, Still certified copper wood plastic.

  • jaybee32

    rick ross goes wood. fat faggot ha ha..

  • villain

    are we really bragging about gold now?

  • Ac@pella!

  • OH PLEASE

  • http://www.pottstreet.com Gusto

    Gold, Silver, Platinum…. it don’t matter, a fraud’s a fraud. A pigs a pig. Too many suckers in this world.

    FUCK THE POLICE! They shot Oscar Grant in the back of the head while he was cuffed and the pig got 2 years!! WTF?

    G

  • Freddy Long

  • Fuck Ya Life

  • Sony Music Intern

  • jrod44

  • Fredro

    only people that goes platinum these days are wayne,eminem,jay, and kanye……so gold nowadays is solid considered everyone now can download for free, itunes, and napster…..congrats rozay

  • MUAHAHAHA

    50 stans mad, hahah Ross outsold BISD,MUNGKEYZ

  • Nick

    ONE solo track out of 11? that’s fucking absurd.

    It’s ridiculous how many are filling up 90% of their albums with other people, doing none of the production and having the Gaul to call it a fucking solo album.

    This was a collaboration album.

  • Android

    WE CERTIFIED GOLD!!!!!!
    NEXT PLATINUM!
    Teflon don is AOTY.
    BAWSE!!!

    These muthafuckas mad that im icey, stunt so hard make em come indict me!!!

  • http://www.youtube.com/jhuntdaprodigy jhuntdaprodigy

    Congrats to Rozay, I wonder if he’ll ever have a platinum selling album

  • http://www.twitter.com/ridalen ridalen

    2.8…2.3….whatever

    If Em did anything less than 7 million its considered a flop in a normal market. Yall are just hating for hating’s sake.

    4 Albums this year were gold or over

    1. Em
    2. Drake
    3. B.O.B.
    4. Ross

    That IS an accomplishment. Period.

  • http://www.twitter.com/ridalen ridalen

    *4 HIP HOP albums.

  • WORKWORK

    B O B ain’t gold yet nor is Officer Ricky, and he’s still 10 thous behind BISD since you brought it up

  • run this town!

    well done rick ross i bought 2 copies myself, best money i spent on an album this year, bought deeper than rap, trilla and port of miami too money well spent too, i know every time rick ross drops an album my money will be well spent, he never dissapoints when it comes to albums, the haters will hate but even THEY know that ricky ross is a problem with them hits, i mean shit what do they do when they in the club when BMF comes on and everyone loses their minds, sit on the corner and sulk?, then MC hammer comes on, then im not a star, then the dj might throw in live fast die young,aston martin music or even take it back with huslin, boss the list goes on, it must be hard being a rick ross hater, the only thing you can say is fat cop, fraud blah blah, played out, you cant deny the man’s music. peace

  • haha…Gold?

    @ Kareem So platinum is the new Diamond? I’m sorry but I don’t think It’s all that great,
    It’s my opinion though, Like I dislike the guy, but I have to respect him only because he’s making more dough than I am, even if he does or doesn’t have the talent. I just don’t think 500 in 9 months is an accomplishment. Maybe in a month or two, but not a nine months.

  • yaboyboyyounglucci

    DIDDY WE DID IT TRILLA ALL U MONKEYS!!!!! NOW LETS GO TO GOLDEN CORRAL AND CELEBRATE TRIPLE CS WENT GOLD TOO HAHA WACK ASS CREW OF SHEEPS COME TO THE WEST GET ATE BY THE WOLVES PUSSY PUSSY!!!!! SALUTE ROZAY THEY ALWAYS SAID FAT MEAT WAS GREASY HUH

  • El

    Times have really changed cause a few years ago this cd would have been a failure but in this economy cds have turned into slow burners and are taking longer to reach their full selling potential. I”m glad to see another man making money by living his dream and not sitting on his butt wishing he did or could. Do your this Mr.Ross
