  • Tri-Wnning

    pardon my typos
    *hottes rapper, he might as well be a rapist though.. lol

  • Tri-Wnning

    bullcrap. Weezy getting too much credit. maybe his label did a good job promoting it. if it’s so much Weezy the single would’ve charted pretty high. people not go buy a album that Weezy is not on, they’ll get the single instead.
    props to his label for doing a good job

  • LONDON BOY!!!

    DOPE!!!

    I think thats more than Wale’s combined debut solo & MMG sales. Ha!

  • Derrt

    Tech N9ne been put in work. Niggas yall crazy lil wayne dont get no credit. If anything lil wayne gets some street cred since he linked up with another REAL blood besides game.

  • Black Shady

    Gettin that independant money!!! congrats to Tech

  • http://therealtechn9ne.com Harvey Dent

    Some of you people need to recognize who Tech is. All Wayne did was put some bars on a 24 track CD. Wayne never even shouted the album out, NOT ONCE. This is ALL Strange Music, and Tech N9nes F.A.N.S. doing it big for the Strange camp. Tech got a HUGE win, and all you people want to do is talk about a nigga that spit a few bars on ONE track. Give the man the REAL credit he deserves.

    Keep it one hunnit, and shrug these haters off! soowoo!

  • http://rapradar Quinn Jones

    Much love to the grinding hard work, love to see my people come up, keep gettn that money, independent money.

  • Able Danger

    Tech deserves this. Purists won’t like it but dude crossed over hard. Mainstream can be done right sometimes and besides T-Painful to my ears this album is narcotic.

  • KillerAtLRG187

    Yo fuk Weezy and fuk the mainstream,Weezy was probablly jockin Tech Nines dick to get on that album..the just of it is,the rap game is fuckin stale,Weezy,Ross,all that bullshit is played out they know it,Weezy is puttin out rock albums tryin to be edgie and relevant,he knows it,he may have skills but the mainstream is stale and watered down,UNDERGROUND is where it’s at,everyones right the MAINSTREAM came to TECH 9,TECH 9 didn’t come to the mainstream,Congrats to Tech 9,STRANGE MUSIC,SUBURBAN NOIZE RECORDS,PSYCHOPATHIC RECORDs,your REAL underground family,FUK THE MAINSTREAM,KMK/MFK all day everyday,hatchet representers,”and everyone at MTV can suck my dick,tellin me well be the shit if they label us a buzz clip,fuk that,we beneith the underground<—& if they try to bump it go and smack em in the face"

  • KillerAtLRG187

    This shitz lifestyle movements not no faggot ass “lick lick lick like a lollipop” flavor of the month club banging pussy bullshit.

  • moreffa

    the music business is in the fucking crapper when selling 55,806 is a big deal

    at least he did it independently

  • http://MLSSoccer AVron

    See that. Put YELAWOLF on a track and let him go to town on it and more records will say. Very good album. A great album is Bad Meets Evil HELL: The Sequel. That s*** is FIRE.

  • still best rite now!!

    Props to Tech

  • Word

    That’s more than Banks. SMH. I still don’t get how Banks flopped so hard. Well at least Tech sold more than Gucci and Waka. Oh and Ross MMG CD too. Wack shit

  • Dizzle

    Tech flopped? 55k on a label that’s indie from top to bottom?!?

    GTFO |:-

  • Tone

    Would some like to see how much tech flopped some one do this math problem for me lets say tech and strange make ahhh $9 bucks a CD remember ppl. This is his label with co owner travis O’guin So they probley make that much a cd so 9.00 x55,000= FUCK A MAJOR LABEL!!!!!! INDEPENDENT DOLLARS!!

    P.S PLUS HE IS ON A 86 DATE TOUR THAT EQUAL MORE $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    -STRANGE MUSIC SHOWING THE INDUSTRY THAT YOU CAN STILL MAKE MONEY IN THIS GAME IF YOU DO IT THE RIGHT WAY!!!!!

  • Lololol

    Lil wayne Killed him on his own shit? People don’t understand rap music…

    I’ll admit weezy was sick, but Tech blew him out of the water on both of his verses, just like he’ll do on Tha Carter IV.

    Honestly though, it’s hard to even compare the two styles, as they are so different. Either way: Mad props to Weezy and Tech for making Hip-Hop history, and Big ups to the Ninna for making it happen indie-style

  • Lololol

    Also #4 on billboard = flopping? Lol wat?

  • Yourmom

    Somone just said wayne on it up’d sales? Get a fuckin clue you idiot, Tech would have done the same with or without. Its not like its advertised on the front “OMFG FEAT. LIL WAYNEEEEEEE” Its Tech N9ne doing what he does best, making an empire from ground up, wayne didnt do shit for sales, if anything people didnt buy it cause they dont like wayne. (I love it all :) )

  • Yourmom

    Also let me metion this is is TENTH ALBUM and he releases on every year and does a TOUR EVERY YEAR around the country and world. Ive gone to 5-6 Tech Shows VIP and they sell out everytime. Then I went to a t-pain conecert……there was like 40 people.

    Tech is doing it right and he knew what he was doing from the beginning over 10 years ago.

    To anyone who thinks lil wayne did better then tech on that song??? LOL NO Lil wayne said “yeh….. yeh…….yeh…….yeh…….yeh……. yeh…… im makin it im makin it im makin it im makin it im makin it”
    I like the song alot, but right there is half of lil waynes verse. Tech obliterated this track over wayne. And always will

  • I fuck your girl when you was home

    Without wayne this icp faggot woulda sold 20,000

    Muthafucker that is what wayne do double your sales

  • GUARE

    nigga doing way better then them ross boys… hahahahah.. fuck outta here… ah yo ross cut that small check four ways .. make it six ways since its major label.. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahahahhahahahaha

  • wizzle

    DAMN THIS JUST PROVES HOW HARD BANKS FLOPPED NIGGA HAD THE WHOLE INDUSTRY ON HIS ALBUM WHICH ANDT WAS A MAJOR N HE DID 40K FIRST WEEK… R.I.P G-UNIT

  • Gorde

    Sorry, “I fuck your girl”….

    Tech consistently sold ~35-40k on his solo albums before this one.

  • Lee

    Techs been making solid albums for a years and how did it flop when its #4 on album sales. i dont see ross or waynes name on the charts. nuff said

  • gloriousness

    Tech isnt associated with ICP at all. he co-owns and runs his own label and still kills it. but all you faggots already know that cause he is on billboards while you are sitting on your computer scratching your balls

  • Burn My Undead Brother

    Tech N9ne is A Lyrical Monster! Aint No One on His Level!
    Tech N9ne is The Best Rapper Alive!
    Tech N9ne’s Music = Real Talk!Rappers Who Make Garbage Music! Support Real Music!!!!

  • WayneOWNZ!

    i am a fan of Tech and Weezy. but you faggots really need to do ur research. Weezy said in an interview that the 2 artists that he wanted to collab with was Andre3000 and Tech N9ne. Wayne came to tech for the collab, and wayne also states that Tech is one of his favorite artist. In other words. GTFO with your tech hatred

  • Krayzie Saudi Gamer

    dwaamn! You dumb cunts need to Unblock your ears and listen to Tech N9ne!!
    it’s funny how those dumb cunts think that listening to mainstream rappers is the coolest to do lmao
    i’m talking to you mainstream bitches!

  • SqueeGee

    Congratulations Tech!

  • Coroner

    Good for him! Wayne have nothing to do with this fools!!! That clown was in on song, fuck that!

  • Chris

    Tech N9ne has been consistently putting out high-selling albums for a while. Absolute Power in 2002 sold more than 313,000 copies (only celebrity feature was D12, without Eminem), Anghellic in 2002 sold about 280,000 copies (Roger Troutman was on it, but c’mon, does that really count to boost up sales?), Everready in 2006 sold around 200,000 (featured E-40… still doesn’t count), Killer in 2008 sold about 125,000 (has Paul Wall, Ice Cube, Scarface, Shawnna & Mista FAB… more features but less sales…??), then K.O.D. in 2009 sold around 120,000 (features Three 6 Mafia, that’s it)….. So that’s a lil history of a few of his albums in the past. This one will most probably outsell most of them. Hopefully all of them. But get your facts straight before you start saying that Lil Wayne is the reason why Tech is selling big and getting noticed. If you were on Tech’s official website even once in the past few months, you’ll notice it was straight up promotion. Tech N9ne is a marketing genius, get used to it motherfuckers. Fuck the ignorant haters, at the end Tech is winning and you’re not. So FUCK YOU. Oh, and buy the album! Ha!

  • GUARE

    he didnt out sell banks nor mmg.. but all three with in the same range.. but tech and banks where independent and mmg was major.. and mmg was a group album so that check get broke off by 4 after the majors take they cut.. banks and tech got most of that money and banks did more then 12 thou on second week like ross and them did..

  • See you in Hell for the Sequel

    gratz to tech! dope album deserves success!! still waiting o my copy in the mail :(

  • TRE

    TECH IS NOT A DEVIL WORSHIPER..tech is the greates rapper of all time he is a lyrical monster who would kill anybody on a track..weezy was nowhere near techs level on fuck food..tech killed him on both verses..weezy was ok but tech was monster

  • KillerAtLRG187

    hip hop isn’t dead u idiotic fuk,real hip hop is underground,u can’t be relevant in the mainstream anymore,mainstream artists have no tennacity,respect,or edge because the mainstream rap Game is watered down shit,no one gives a fuk about wayne or soldja boy or Ross cause people want artist with a little butbif integrity and respect,no one wants to listen to bullshit that every bitch in apple bottom jeans in the club is listening to,there are Ross and Wayne fans that are justin bieber fans,”Lik Lik Lil like a lollipop”,get the fuk outta here no one wants to hear that TRENDY MAINSTREAM WATERED DOWN bullshit,true hip hop fans wants artists with audacity,REAL UNDERGROUND FAMILY,”flip the whole world upside down now they DYING to be underground”

  • KillerAtLRG187

    Rap artists trying to be rock n roll LOL,WTF,ur style is played out and damaged,it needs a bandage,how do you manage,I can’t stand it.whats next for all you mainstreamers…Lady Gaga and Lil Wayne go on tour.

  • Chris

    @young cucci poppin lucci woww I’M A FUCKING LATINO AND TECH N9NE IS MY FAVORITE RAPPER!!! hahahaha you’re so fucking stupid and one of my best friends is BLACK and TECH N9NE IS HIS FAVORITE RAPPER TOO!!! Tech has never done or said ANYTHING to make ANYONE think he was a devil worshipper. That stupid rumor started in 2001 because his image was crazy. He had red spiky hair and painted his face. WTF does that have to do with the fucking devil??? NOTHING. It’s just a crazy image he had because of all the Ecstacy, acid, shrooms & hard liquor he was doing. Once he got sober he cut his hair normal. Once again, Chris making you ignorant haters feel stupid because i state facts and realities while yall just blabbering stupid shit.
    FACT: Tech N9ne believes in GOD and JESUS CHRIST. (He has no specific religion, but believes in the BIBLE)

    FUCK YEAH!!!! STRANGE MUSIC!!!! SHADY!!!!! SLAUGHTERHOUSE!!!!!! BM3!!!!!

  • Jason

    Dang, I bet Tech N9ne gets like 80% since he’s independent. KOD did 30k first week. Tech N9ne has gotten a lot bigger. I bet a lot of fans who heard worldwide choppers bought it, that song has over 2 million views on youtube alone.

  • Jason

    Yo, I don’t know why people are saying it’s because of wayne. If you look on youtube, the song with wayne on it(f**k food) doesn’t even have that many views. Worldwide Choppers has over 2 million views.
