Nicki Minaj Reacts To Album Sales

Now that the final numbers are in, Nicki Minaj called 1515 and spoke on 375,000 of her fans copping copies of Pink Friday. The last female rapper to debut with six digits was Lauryn Hill in 1998 with The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill. That project moved 423,000 units in its first week.

“I feel this weird calm feeling. I’m just so grateful and kind of still in shock. These numbers haven’t been put up since 1998,” she continued, referring to Hill’s debut. “It just makes me feel proud of my team, proud of my fans, everyone who has had something to do with my dreams. Finally, we are seeing this dream come to fruition. It feels incredible.”

  • Yooo

    good lord look at that ass

  • Da Troof

    Someone shut this dumb bitch up, anybody can sell that number when their CD is 3-4 bucks!!!!! Lauryn Hill sold that many at retail price, they dropped this bitches market value down, then came in with that studio hall-over of a 100,000 units. I run a popular website and every time I post Nicki Minaj news THE SHIT GETS NO HITS!!!! PERIOD!!!!

    you say that about her album being on sale or whatever, but people who bought her album wanted her album, they woulda bought it one way or another. stop hating, its pathetic. you don’t have to like her, but did you sell that many albums? no? ohhh, okay, shut the fuck up. point is the bitch is makin fuckin money & getting fans & there are people who like her shit. the haters a irrelevant at this point. and that’s not even just for nicki, its for everyone you haters love to come on and say bad things about just to do it. educate yourself before you speak. have you even heard the album? damn

  • Word

  • YOUAJOKE

    WOW THERE A LOT OF FAGGOT ASS NIGGAS IN THIS WORLD TODAY… IF YOU A HETRO MALE AND YOU BOUGHT THIS ALBUM YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT KILLING YOURSELF LIKE NO JOKE

    NICKI WOULDNT DO THEM NUMBERS BACK A FEW YEAR AGO WHEN NIGGAS WERE MAKING REAL HIP HOP… SHE IS A FRAUD, EVERYTHING SHE DOES IS AN ACT FOR THESE GAY ASS BITCHES

  • skrilla

    6 digits in the first week u dumb fucks

  • Shane

    they might have meant highest sales for a female rapper….kim n missy sold lyk 200k…she still sold 150k more than them when album sales are at their lowest…all the other albums that sold 200k by female rappers were in 00-03…when they were still high so she still wins….n for all you ppl hating im sure u either didnt listen to the album or went in with an opinion already made…its not a classic but its still good n in my opinion better than thank me later

    i give it a 9/10…i didn’t rate it as a hardcore rap album lyk lyrically or something just by how much i lyked it n i lyked most of the songs

  • B.Dot

    Good shit @B.Dot, I know I can count on you for some quality Nicki ass shots. Fuck a album, put out a sextape and she going Platinum in one week

    not in the first week of their debut

  • ESCO

    @ those saying congrats

    smack yourselves you just contributed to the biggest disease and gimmick in hip hop since vanilla ice.

    you’ll slap yourselves in 5 years time when you come to that realization, mark my words.

  • toad3527

    kim and missy never did 6 figures in the first week, please think before posting

    and there have been many more bigger gimmicks in hip hop since vanilla ice, pretty much every rapper has a gimmick if you want to call it that.

    nikki isnt really my style but i will say that at least she has a lil swagger to her, that is more than any of these wack female emcees in the game today.

    I give props where props are due and any time a female in hip hop can make a buzz like she has she deservers props because it is a rarity

  • haters are annoying

    @Da Troof guess no one goes to your unknown website *kanye shrug*

  • haters are annoying

  • Jacob

    funny thing she has ass implants and those are some pretty bad numbers for a first week with all that “buzz” about her

    aka shes a horrible rapper just trying to copy lady gagas style

  • Word

    @Haters Are Annoying

    How childish are you. If you hate on Nicki your gay? What are you 12? Lol who says something like that

  • DrDreFukAllYouUp

    @ Word lol,. 12 yr olds. You basically nailed it on the head. ;p

  • Belize

    Onika don’t kid yourself. Pics like that on the top? THAT’s why you sold.

  • Fuck Ya Life

    That show’s with the right hype you can throw shit on a disc (like this) and sell records. Oh well that fake ass on point tho.

  • PTownWa

    Man her CD and Lauryn’s should never be mentioned in the same sentence… let alone their names…SMH

  • smokeyou

    title should be RapRadar fans react to Nicki Minaj’s ass.

    god damn. put one on the front I’d slap both of em.

  • Belize

    That ass looks like 2 pillows glued to her usual ass, and whenever she go home she can just rip it off. smdh. @PTownWa: yep. That’s what a cushiony butt can do for a broad.

  • DrDreFukAllYouUp

    @PTownWa what you say reminds me of alllllllllllllllllll those Tupac wackos.

  • Belize

    @toad3527: Rah Digga is a MC. Onika, no matter how much she claims to be, is not and will never be because she simply ain’t rap. *kanye shrug* @Da Troof makes a good point. When you can get something that hopefully has a pic like that one at the top, and it only 4%, you gon buy it. Simple as that.

  • Belize

    *simple ASS that*

  • haters are annoying

    @word not music wise just calling her ugly and a bitch

  • SHADY

    lol Ass Is Fake..
    but YES, I’d Hit it ;)
    as far as the album sales…
    Congrats Nicki. and Thats from a Man!
    cuz even tho I’m a man…
    Nicki>>>>>>>>>>>>soulja boy’s bitch ass anyday Lmao real talk

  • Da Troof

    FEENIXA you are just a dumb bitch, get out of here with that same desperate arguement, this bitch is a label pawn, she don’t write her own shit, she don’t style her own shit, she wears pads in his ass, she can’t even admit that she a dyke cuz it will fuck up her whole marketing plan towards overweight nigga’s who can’t get pussy without dropping some money. And don’t act like half those sales aren’t through her own Label, learn the business you dumb high school bitch, this is RIAA doo-doo baby, you don’t even know what the fuck that means. I’m gonna shit on who ever the fuck I want, cuz bottom line is IF YOU SUCK, YOU FUCKING SUCK!!! PERIOD!!! That’s the rap game, you wanna be a sensitive cunt then hit up R&B music or some Rock & Roll. FOH!

  • Itz Yourz

    Clink…clink…yeah…Im adding my two cents in.

    so check it out…this tryout of mines…is cleaning up the whole house playing pink friday…while I put my mudrer game down on Black Ops (yall nigga link up wit me with either system). The album is not bad at all…definietly not hiphop…pop w/ah little rap swag to it. A lot of singing…def. different from what we hear from our girls who are rap labeled.

    I congratulate her cause yes 6 figures has been reached before but not in a debut album (except lauryn and missy) and not in the time, era of rap/hiphop/pop/bubblegum etc with the copyright infringement and piracy that is going on today with music at its highest….and still…she hits that figure. You dont have to like her but you gotta respect that…and you got to respect that ASS! Im jealous of rihanna and regis right now!

    @Belize how is dat ass pads? Have you ever seen massive attack! That shit will have you lost for words and talking in togues!!

  • doe money

    First of all, that ass is faker than R&BRadar. Secondly, birdman probably copped like 300, 000+ just like he did when he bought over “a Milli” copies of Lil wayne’s LP before he hit the bing. Think about it you bitches…

  • doe money

    RR is down with the labels. Main stream ass niggas…

  • http://www.facebook.com HIP HOP MUSIC

  • Da Troof

    THEREALPROTEGE you dumb fucking internet nigger, do some research, then come back and apologize for how stupid you just looked.

  • Yep

    You can tell her ass is fake just by the absence of a dimple in the middle. Every ass always has a dimple/cup area on the sides, that ass is too round, even Coco’s ass got a cup.

  • drast

    nice big butt!

  • R

    Fake ASS Id Still Fuk that till the Silicone Juice pops out her ass and Bust a Nut on her Shitty ALBUM!

  • 3pk

    WHAT NEEDS TO BE STRESSED IS NEBER SAID. IF YOU CLAIM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT RECORD SALES, THE REAL EMPHASIS RELIES ON THE LIFE OF THE SALES CONTINUING TO GROW. A NEAR GOLD DEBUT IS A GREAT HEAD START, BUT IF SHE’S AT 2 MILL THIS TIME NEXT YEAR, PINK FRIDAY WIL BE A SUCCESS. NOW SHE’S GOT TO WORK HER FAT ASS OFF AND KEEP THE MOMENTUM UP. ALSO ONE THING SHE NEEDS TO WORK ON IS HER PERFORMANCE. SHE IS NOT AN INTENSE PERFORMER. HER LIVE PERFORMANCE WORRK NEEDS HELP IF SHE’S PLANNING ON DOING THE 100 SHOWS SHE’LL NEED TO BUILD THIS ALBUM UP AHEAD.

  • seamz

    I feel bad for anyone who paid for this album… It’s straight garbage.

  • Ym

    I downloaded the album, because i must listen before i judge. All i can say is: alot of people just bought a pretty shitty album…. (push delete and put on rah digga again)

  • Lets Be Honest

    I smell liars. Her album was $14. Her music is good she’s just lumped in with the Soulja boy’s of today. I don’t think people are giving her a fair chance.

  • pussy

    that ass>>>>>>>>>pink friday for sure

  • pussy

    n please bitch never mention lauryn hill to ur fake ass shit

  • http://www.bigimageworldwide.net Mr. Big Image

    Congrats on the numbers at bestbuy it was on sale for 7.99 But you suppose to do big number when you have half industry cosigning and pushing you when you really not that good. Lauryn Hill did that with pure talent and without bunch of ninjas on the clit. To put her in the same sentence as lauryn is an insult. We all know Rapradar probably getting a check to push her and most on this industry Bullcrap!

  • ZoomZoom

    NICKI ACTUALLY BROKE THE RECORD FOR MOST SALES AS A FEMALE RAPPER YOU CLOWNS!!

    LAURYN HILL ALBUM WAS LISTED UNDER “RNB/SOUL” HAHA NICKI WINS!

  • ZoomZoom

    BASICALLY WHAT IM TRYNA SAY IS…………………… NICKI MINAJ>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> LAURYN HILL

  • iam2smooth

    Yall kno imma Kim fan nd I’d pick kim lyrically over Nikk but all nd all that’s a good look 4 hip hop even tho Nikk is more pop these days but the album is still in the hip hop category so none the less good shit.. but let’s be real look at Nikk fans.. She have teen fans who aren’t real hip hop heads nd don’t care about her lyrical level.. Nikk buzz moved all them units not her lyrical content. nd u can’t hate on her hustle cuz she is grindin!

  • Belize

    @Black Panther: As the cliche goes, I think fucking a empty milk gallon would be pretty uncomfortable.

  • Jus sayin

    Have any of y’all actually heard the album? Jus sayin… I mean all these people have all these opinions about weird random shit, her ass is fake, her sales arent as big as her hype, blah blah blah. But did you hear the album tho? Personally I know for a fact she did her thing. I actually LISTENED TO IT IN ITS ENTIRETY before forming my opinion. Its this crazy thing I like to do called “KNOWING WTF IM TALKING ABOUT!” All I can say is she ain’t talking bout suckin dick and gettin smashed and she ain’t spittin bout tearin the club up in her stilletoes. She was way more positive and motivational than I pegged her to be. The fact that people are hating on that but promoting Kim is hilarious to me. You must really Hate Black Women in General… SMH
