  • Belize

    Congratulations, Kanye! Well deserved!

  • JHENDE02

    I love Kanye and Nicki but the only reason Nicki went platinum first is because she tricked us! Had us thinking we were buying a rap album! SMH

  • Post no billz

    ye still doin it big.. Great album..

  • sidehsowRaheem

    @JHENDE02

    Nicki didn’t really go platinum first she was just certified first. The studio has to pay the IRAA to certify that an album has shipped 1,000,000 units. Some labels are more eager then others to get that certification done because it makes a new artist like Nicki look good in the headlines her label Young Money/Universal probably asked for her certification very quickly. If you look at the weekly numbers Nicki still hasn’t past Kanye in overall sales.

  • dannidavito

    haha Nicki went platinum before Ye! the world must have ended!!!!

  • K-Lam

    Album was disappointing to me but no hate in my bones. Congrats Ye, looking good for rap right now

  • Toven

    I rather listen to pink friday than listen to gayfish! nicki album is actually rap because guess what she rap in every song surprise huh smh. internet blogger are so ignorant.

  • The Real Truth

    @dannidavito funny thing sir, Kanye has outsold Nikki to this day she still hasnt sold a million, but because they hat on Kanye they report his late …. read the ling and actual record sales, not units “shipped” lol 915k is still more then 890k right…… and thats with not 1 radio song on the album, a entire year of hype and bunch of cameo’s, just word of mouth lol

  • The Real Truth

    @Toven first off Nicki did not rap in every song…. second… Nicki album sounds like a pop album, those beats are straight pop and to be honest she got maybe 4 or 5 good songs and they all have guest appearances where she gets out shined…. i’m just saying…. only thing wrong with Kanye album is he lets the be go too long

  • The Real Truth

    Pink Friday is at 890.000 while MBDTF is at 915.000 copies sold. So much for Nicki outselling Kanye.

    Dont know what rock you live under but check spins on Monster & All Of The Lights?? Thats 2 radio songs by my count, and the fact that nicki minaj is even in compitetion with Kanye is feat of its own this her Debut Album, not her fifth album with an established fan base, big difference. And it was 4 months of hype just cuz you ride dick year round dont mean everybody does, good fridays started in august, this album was very disapointing considering everybody heard 85% of the album months before its release. was not enough for me to go buy it, was not even enough to even burn a copy, i aint wasting 99 cents on this garbage ass album, Its more like a compilation i mean count the verses by ye himself maybe 20 and thats the high end, how many tracks were just ye? i dont know cuz i threw that shit out…but hats off to him if i could sell a million copies of a record i gave most of it away i would be happy…

  • Ac@pella!

    Congrats 2 my nigga Kanye. But bold pic guys…bold pic. Lol.

    @ JHENDE02 – Nikki didn’t fool y’all, y’all knew what you were getting because before hand she didn’t release one RAP song. What the heck was “right thru me” ?

    If you’re a dude and went in the store/iTunes/download an album called PINK FRIDAY…….slap ya self.

    Reality is this is just certification. Is this something new record label/rap sites will be doing because since when do we care about certification? Are labels that eager for their artist to go platinum? Real spit of you ask me platinum is mediocre these days, because most rappers could barely make it there. Now, when you talking Eminem numbers 3.4 mil now you talking rap album sales.

    AND by the way, album doesn’t mean an album was GREAT, it means that many albums were bought. If you could take a CD back to the store it’ll be different.

  • Word

    Good shit YE. Only your third best album to me, but def. one of the best of this year. It just aint no damn College Dropout but hey.

    And Ye album was def. not all hip hop. What the fuck was that Lost in The World shit? Thats not hip hop. And Who Will Survive in America aint even a song. None of the album really sounds hip hop except Monster, So Appallled, and Devil in a New Dress. Not the say the album HAS to sound like everything else. But thats just my observation. Lost in the world was bullshit though….wackest Ye song I heard ever.

    in 10 years when there are new kids being introduced to the hip hop movement…when it comes time for them to try and learn hip hop they will look at mbdtf and think, ” wow, this is a masterpiece” …they will then look at nicki’s album and say this is what i shouldnt do and this is not what is going to help me
