  • Mr. Big Image

    I wonder how many baby bought.

  • LikeJordan45

    ^It says DEBUT album

    Honestly I don’t care though.

  • Van

    …and Nicki wins by a landslide.

    Gave Pink Friday a honest listen over the holidays, not the worst thing I’ve heard this year.

    PF is definitely Nicki rapping over pop tracks, nice formula.

    Congrats to Nicki and all the producers that made that production driven project happen: Bangladesh, Blackout Movement, Drew Money, Oak, Papa Justifi, J. R. Rotem, Swizz Beatz, T-Minus, will.i.am, oh and Ye, etc.

    Especially T-Minus that “Moment 4 Life” shit was knocking NYE 2010.

    Crazy Crazy Crazy respect to executive producers Bryan Williams and Ronald Williams – LMAO those two stay getting money.

    Ok, I said it, I’m done.

  • King Jugganott

    That’s what the hell I’m talking about, Gotta love this chick. Talented as hell…..I’m glad she got it done.

  • Fuck Ya Life

    When it comes to records sold she ain’t plat, she’s like somewhere in the 800,000. Jumping the gun a lil but still she’ll be plat soon. As much as I hate this chicks music, she’s moving some units.

  • Michael

    Even when she hit platinum the haters still talk! “Oh by the third album she won’t be selling” When it was “Her debut is gonna flop”

  • Bryce Ayyy

    It’s been shown. This album was a great POP album. Of course, Bravo for that but don’t you dare put this shit in the “Hip-Hop” category.Let’s not fool ourselves please. Ya’ll want to scream “hater this”, “hater that” but can you sit here and SINCERELY tell us that it’s a good HIPHOP album? Fuck outta here.

    If you were actually a person who has been tracing Hip-Hop back to the 80’s and been thoroughly keeping up with it, you’d know this shit ain’t Hip-Hop.

    She went platinum..congratulations..does that mean her album was good..ummmm no. If you realize her fanbase, she’s basically embodied what most of these fags(if you seen the videos of who was waiting outside of Best Buy for her CD to drop you’d know I’m not just spitting nonsense because I’m “hating”) and women want to be. Crazy, Fake Wigs, Crazy ass voice inflections and facial expressions, with poppy beats and symbolizing a Sexy Barbie that men drool over because of her voluptuous shape and ass pads make her body look superb.

    Out of the last sentence I just put…none of that reflects her MUSIC, it’s just reflecting her IMAGE. People dig her because of her IMAGE. Don’t get me wrong, her cut, “Moment for Life” was cool…
    annnnnd that was about the only one. Other than that…Massive Attack, Will.I.Am bullshit cut, Right through me? Trash.

    Call me a hater…I’ll gladly accept the villain roll. But it sucks that you’ll call me that knowing that I’m right about everything I said.

  • Fuck Ya Life

    @Bryce Ayyy

    Co-sign everything u said. The YM/Nicki fags are gonna try to give it to u but truth hurt. And niggas need to save the congrats for when she actually moves a million units.

  • Spivey

    Nicki Platinum before kanye… Kill yourself

  • rek

    bryce – does it have rhymes over beats? it’s a hip hop album. helluva lot of pop influence, but it’s a hip hop album. if YOU trace hip hop back to the 80’s, you’ll see that there was a lot of costumes and theatrics involved. also, a lot of the best emcees got crazy voice inflections and facial expressions. and i don’t know if you’re familiar with ll cool j or big daddy kane.. but they did the sex symbol thing too. bottom line though, she got bars and its a shame you can’t hear them.

    congrats to nicki, but i do wish it was because the album was just THAT good and not because she had all that crazy fan support. still, respect her for opening up lanes for female rappers and i hope she balances it out a bit more on the sophomore joint.

  • slimshady

    ^Ye sold more than nikki so far, obv hes gone plat

    @rek….

    Soooo what other rapper stands in weird ass poses and moves their neck and inflects their voice HALF as much as Nicki Minaj did in “Monster”? Don’t worry…I’ll wait.

    Eminem doesn’t even do that as wildly and as much as she does. Of course we know there were certain hip-hop acts “Digital Underground” who wore a funny mask when performing. But the dude’s entire embodiment wasn’t a fake.

    Nicki Minaj was a certain way before she hit big. She had that “slow roast, gutta bitch” flow that was sexy as well as deadly. In order to sell more she substituted her sound for the image of “It’s Barbie!” with super extravagant wigs. She doesn’t wear anything but wigs and come with this fake voice yet when she’s on the documentary she’s like…”People expect me to be..Nicki Minaj all the time.”

    Uhhhh DUH BITCH, that’s what you signed up for!

    LL Cool J? There’s a difference between a tenacious voice/facial expression to exert passion and straight up looking like a clown with scrunched up faces, jerking/twisting her neck like a malfunctioning robot…etc. Please don’t compare them to what Nicki Minaj is doing. No rapper to date has looked so foolish.

    Did I ever say Nicki couldn’t spit? Naw, she can do it when she wants but the whole “Supa Dupa” flow that she stole (hang it up;flat screen), has been deaded for a long time yet she’s still trying to dig up the corpse. I said her SONGS as a WHOLE were trash. She has her bars here and there but don’t play like she goes hard 24/7.

    Some shit is like…really…
    EX: “Hey Nicki, Hey Nicki…asthma”

    …really?

  • ZoomZoom

    @SLIMSHADY

    HE ONLY SOLD MORE THAN HER HIS FIRST WEEK AND THAN HIS NUMBERS STARTED TO DROP PRETTY FAST… HES NOT PLATINUM YET

  • AnuKiNSkywalker

    Salute conGrats :)

  • flyclub

    before Ye? word.

  • ESCO

    She is not a rapper.

    She DOES not represent New York.

    Growing up in Queens just blocks away from Southside Jamaica, she does not represent us at all. She is a fucking disease and disgrace to hip hop.

  • JAYE

    NICE!!!!!!!! GO HEAD BABYGIRL!!! #TEAMMINAJ

  • Petey B

    Big ups to Young Money/Cash money for having enough money to purchase 800,000 copies of her CD :-)

  • Belize

    Damn shame. Fuck the world and its ignorance about this bitch & porn. SHE DOESN’T DO PORN YET. 2 bad so many people had to BUY the album to figure that one out.
    And lemme guess: @YN & @B.Dot think Onika is a better rapper than Lloyd Banks. lmao

  • Donn

    CALL HER OVER RATED, TOO CREATIVE OR TOO JADED BUT EITHER WAY U PUT BITCH SHE MADE IT YEUP!!!!!

    Lol, type louder haters

  • TheTruthIs…

    The Truth Is…

    She’s probably shipped platinum.

    The real winner this week is Eminem cause he’s Triple Platinum doing 60 (Not 50) a week…

    Kanye has about 30K more than Nicki though, shes about 852 and he’s 882 …

    congrats nicki xxxx

  • BLUE FRIDAY

    HATERS ARE SO MAD RIGHT NOW.. BWAHAHAHAHAHA.. THE HATERS WILL REALIZE ONE DAY THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU WISH BAD FOR SOMEONE BLESSINGS WILL ALWAYS SHINE THROUGH FOR THE INTENDED INDIVIDUAL U DESPISE

  • Sohhh

    Mainstream wins again!!!!!!keep listening to kims disses there real hip hop hahaha

  • http://officialdotinconline.com SDO Trends

    First, congrats Nicki keep it up. Second, can we all finally accept that there are multiple avenues to hip hop? Ye said it best, “Is hip hop just a euphemism for a new religion?” Hip hop has changed, if your a underground artist or lover of underground music and your favorite artists are people like French Montana, Black Sheep, Ras Kas, etc. then don’t judge mainstream artists. For example, if your top 5 goes something like Bun B, Boosie, Scarface, Weebie and Lil Wayne then your comments about Will-I-Am can’t be taking seriously. If you love hip hop like Nas, Talib Kwalib, Mos Def and others then a post about Waka Flocka and Soulja Boy is really not necessary. All I’m saying is praise the good in hip hop, Nicki selling a mil is a good in hip hop, Lil Wayne going to jail for 8 months is not, just saying. Oh and if your a lil kim fan….I’m sorry but Nicki is winning right now, just saying. My girl love Nicki, I know she can destroy Kim lyrically but the goal is to make money from what I understand. Just saying.

  • ymcmb4life

    All the guys on here that are hating are just talking… eminem kanye jayz lil wayne 50 diddy and all the rest of the whole industry are trying to be like young money diddy and eminem singing now for instince… Nikki minaj is the best female entertainer in the biz period and if pirating wasnt invented nikki would be triple platinum by now. young money is better then everything

  • ymcmb4life

    And if you watched bet young money was on 60 percent of the 100 best videos. drake and wayne killing the game. . . congrats Nikki fucc haters

  • Mr Xclusive

  • D

  • The Real Truth

    That is bullshit, she has not sold more then Kanye….. look at the totals just posted 2 days ago

    http://www.sohh.com/2011/01/eminem_gets_a_swift_kick_to_no_2_nicki_m.html

    The be trying to hype her up so bad, I wonder how much money they pay to send out these false reports smh

    Since when did 850K become platinum?

    Young Money star Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday moved back into the Top 5 by climbing up four positions to No. 4 with 60,900. With six weeks in the books, her debut album has pushed out 851,800 copies. [Check out Nicki Minaj's Score]

    Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy received a 14-slot boost to No. 5 with 58,400. Heading into his seventh week, Yeezy’s comeback LP has moved 882,200 units

    @ZoomZoom

    Ya his numbers dropped around Christmas time cause he had no radio spins and he didn’t do ONE thing of promotion after his album dropped, so than Nicki almost caught up, but Ye still has the lead by like 30k copies. And Nicki’s been EVERYWHERE promoting since her album dropped, Ye hasn’t done a damn thing since his record dropped. Nigga doesn’t even tweet anymore. But after Christmas was over Ye caught up and he was top 5 again, only 2k behind Nicki, with no promo. He’ll have longer lasting power, and AOTL is blowing up on radio right now. Nigga is gonna have amazing consistency when he starts promo for WTT too. Easily second highest selling rap album of the year. He’s already number 2 in worldwide sales for Rap.

  • John

    @The Real Truth

    Nicki shipped a million records. Once you ship them out, you can pay for the certification. Kanye hasn’t even payed for a Gold certification yet. Eminem is notorious for that. Eminem’s albums are diamond but he hasn’t paid for the certification.

    So Kanye’s album can be ‘certified’ anytime he wants, but he clearly doesn’t want it for some reason. He still sold more.
