    “Cole World” is so fucking good. This album, despite all the hate it got when it dropped, is actually very good too.

    (Carter 4 blows)

    It was only a matter of time. Gratz to em’ both. I actually didn’t like the album as much as I wanted to, but it was good. The New Day joint on the RZA beat is nice.

  • John

    Jayz must of bought wtt because,the 2nd week sale it drop 85%.

  • http://shipwreckdakota.tumblr.com Shipwreckdakota

    Be realistic. Weezy is talented. He has talent, and he’s definitely one of the best. But he’s no Jay-Z. He’s no Eminem. I don’t even think he’s a Kanye. Jay-Z and Weezy both already have legacies, but Jay-Z’s is stronger and will outlast Lil Waynes.

    Saleswise yall cant compare C4 and Watch the throne. C4 sold more on its first week then Kanye and Jay sold right now and c4 will sell more overall. BUT Watch the Throne is a much better album than Tha Carter IV. Simple as that.

  • Donn

    I have a question. Just because u dnt like something, does that mean everyone in the world shouldnt like it. Is ur opinion the only one that matters to you. Could it be possible that ppl like Wayne, Jay and Kanye. Isnt music about self expression. Where ppl want to express themselves through music because they feel inspired by the culture. Not everybody can be Nas, not everyone can be Eminem or Raekwon. Ppl express themselves differently and just because u dnt like something doesnt mean we all shudnt. How To Love, Otis, Roll Up, Headlines, Love The Way You Lie, etc. Theres something for everyone out there. But sitting here bashing other ppl for what they like is lame. If u like C4, bump it, if its Cole World, fine. But all this negativity amongst fans is whats killing HipHop…

  • mac DIESEL

    STILL AIN’T FEELIN’ THIS ALBUM THAT MUCH!!!! HEARD THAT SHIT MAD TIMES AND IT STILL AIN’T GROWIN’ ON ME!!!! IF THERE’S GONNA BE A WTT 2, JAY BETTER PUT HIS MARK ON THAT ALBUM!!!! CUZ WTT SOUND MORE LIKE A KANYE INFLUENCED ALBUM RATHER THAN A COLLLECTIVE ALBUM FROM KAYNE AND JAY!!!!

    It only took two months! Here’s my thing, in some ways, yes, Jay-Z is unfuckwittable, but Jay failed at making a Dynasty. Granted, he put Kanye on, and that is a huge legacy move, but that was actually Dame who saw Kanye’s potential and signed him, Jay just rode with it, and Kanye stayed with him after the split, but still that ain’t a dynasty. That’s one nigga still on from The Roc. That ain’t a dynasty. However, Wayne got Drake, and Nikki, arguably two artists that are the second and third biggest rappers today (I’m not saying which is which) and might even be able to make Cory into something, and even got wack ass tyga bubblin at a level at least comparable to Bleek. Now THAT’s a fucking dynasty. There was definitely a time where it seemed Drake had eclipsed Wayne, but even if that happened, it ultimately would’ve just been another win for Wayne. Not to mention, Drake is putting on The Weeknd, who could very well end up being the premier in his genre. THAT’S A FUCKING DYNASTY.

    Of course, niggas say Birdman bought a bunch of copies but what, how many? Maybe 200k? So that shit still sold 800k in it’s first week. And it’s shit, and everyone knew it, BUT IT STILL SOLD. My point is, yeah, maybe Jay is the King, but at this rate, Wayne is undoubtedly the biggest rapper in the game and if he can simply maintain, not even rise, his legacy will be more impressive than Jay’s in many concrete ways.

    That having been said. BLKHRTS still got next.

    Congrads to Jay and Ye…Wayne sold almost a million his first week and is now selling VERY low following numbers which says a lot. But anyway, Jay and Ye album was way better, real rap, shit you can learn and step your game with. Wayne shit was TERRIBLE, i cant even listen to it to be honest………Steems

    @Yonnas What Roc-A-Fella had was a dynasty especially by rap label standards. Jay-Z alone is a dynasty. In order to call something a dynasty it has have longevity. To even mention what Wayne has with Drake and Nikki as a dynasty is asinine. They only have an album a piece. They have a chance to become that, but as for now that’s premature. Roc-A-Fella dropped it’s 1st album in 96 and had a successful run up until 2003, Platinum plaques every year except 96. DYNASTY!!!

  • Jaymalls

    @Benzo550 Co-Sign
    I swear RapRadar got some of the dumbest readers (e.g Yonnas, So Icy Boy, John, Real Talk, etc.) How the fuck having 2 of the biggest african-american POP stars our RIGHT NOW a legacy. Jay-Z started that Roc shit by himself, not with no co-sign and fronts from birdman and the hot boyz…. They made wayne, they produced and wrote everything for wayne… you cant find no1 that can say they wrote for Jay-Z… NOT 1. If you look @ anybody CLOSE 2 Jay level.. they all had a co-sign from people like Dre, Eminem, Jermain Dupri, Diddy, etc. There are only a few artist that start shit up on their own… and they r a last of a dying breed.
    2nd off… Jay & Dame had Memphis Bleek, i repeat, Memphis Bleek getting GOLD PLAQUES (PLURAL), They Had the YOUNG GUNS going GOLD, DJ CLUE going GOLD, State property going GOLD, FREEWAY going GOLD, KANYE going triple Platinum, Jay going triple PLATINUM, CAM’RON going PLATINUM, DIPSET going GOLD, etc. THATS what you call a dynasty! #PUSSY Not just 3 niggas eating!!

  • IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII

    @Yonnas

    Young Money isn’t as big as the Roc was in it’s heyday. Early 2000’s: Jay was dropping Blueprints and Black Albums, the Diplomats were taking over the streets, Kanye was slowly changing the game, Beyonce was the undisputed Queen, and Just Blaze was introducing himself to the world. But as you can see, all empires rise and fall, so we have several years to go before we see how Young Money stands the test of time. After all, nobody besides Wayne was popular before last year.

    As far as a legacy; he has Beyonce as his wife, a child on the way, and more than a billion dollars in the family bank account. Legacies don’t get much more impressive than that.

  • J3

    When comparing Jay-Z and Wayne I think we all need to understand there is a distinction between being the best rapper and being the most popular rapper. Right now Wayne with his Jegging and strumming his guitar is very popular. In my opinion his songs are not structured and if he doesn’t get a handle on that he will die out. Young kids like him but will they grow old with him like my generation did with Jay-Z?

    There is no doubt Jay-Z is the best rapper we have right now(although Nas is still my favorite) record sales are not the only measure of greatness. It is one of the ways you measure it but not the only way.

  • company

    YALL FAIL TO REMEMBER THE FACT THAT WAYNE PROMOTED C4 FOR 6 MONTHS STRAIGHT! TRACKS & VIDS RELEASED.

    JAY & YE DIDN’T NEED ALL THAT. THEY MENTIONED IT HERE & THERE BUT NO HARD PROMO. THERE WERE MONTHS BETWEEN H.A.M. & OTIS. THE THRONE HAD FUN WITH IT WHILE WAYNE NEEDED TO WORK HARD TO MAKE AN ALBUM.

    WTT > R.E.D. > C4

  • Michelle

    In the long run WTT will sell more than C4. 5 years from now people will still pick up a copy of WTT. C4 will be forgotten. Quality wins in the end.

    first off jay-z is the GOAT. I remember my first time hearing & seeing him on BET. i think it was the “can i get open” video,..jay had the best verse outta everybody, i remember thinking, “this nigga is go hard as f*CK” and i was only 9 years old at the time.( mind you, im from the midwest, so they wasnt playin no Jay-Z on the radio were im from) then i seen him in another video “in my lifetime” in 1994, loved it, so from then on, I kept an open hear for the n*gga, then a couple years later Reasonable doubt came out. everybody says its a classic now, but back then it didnt sell sh*t, and jay was very slept on because there were more mainstream acts like -Nas, 2pac, biggie, snoop dogg, Bone thugz, LL, Busta, etc.,( yes even nas was more mainstream than jay back then) then his second album ‘In my lifetime” also got slept on, even tho it sold more than RD. jay didnt blow up until 1998 vol 2 hardknock life, from then on, he’s been an unstoppable force….yes imma jay fan /stan , whatever you wanna call me. …IDGAF…..

    First off, I wanna say, I’m smoking that crazy good colorado shit, laced with the finest hash money can buy, so, yes, I’m high, but still, FUCK ALL YOU NIGGAS. The definition of a Dynasty is not longevity by one artist. It’s a succession of kings, of rulers, of top dogs. Jay never was responsible for another top dog except Ye, and to be frank, like I said before, Jay was not responsible for that.

    Are all you niggas telling me that you really think that Drake and Nikki aren’t gonna be all up in your face for at least the next five years? Who the fuck you think is gonna have a longer career? Drake or Beanie Seigel? Nikki Minaj or………….Bleek? Them niggas didn’t go PLAT when people still boughtt CDs! Drake and Nikki go platinum when the youth of America don’t even know where the fucking record store is! An You giving Jay credit for the Diplomats?
    I mean, come the fuck on, you niggas ride Jay’s dick so hard, it’s disgusting. All I’m saying is Weezy has built the dynasty Jay always wanted to, and deep in Jay’s little black heart, he knows that, and sooner you niggas just shut the fuck up and admit that, the better. Yeah, the Roc was the shit but do the math, even in this age of a crumbling music industry. YMCMB has sold more ALREADY. Fucking clowns. I’m not even partial to either of these clowns, I’m just stating facts.
