  • Billy D

    50 does 160k its a flop but bad does 139k and its ok??? I’m confused.

  • Hu Liu Kim

    word to Billy D. it’s called hate/double standard.

    If Nas did this Officer Ricky wil def do 250

  • JOHNYblaze

    first nas album since stillmatic i havent bought day 1, waiting on a check to cop this and havent even bothered streaming or listening till i cop it this weekend. NAS is the goat and inspired my other faves such as pun, terror squad, prodigy even jigga

  • http://www.1073wkcr.com TRACK KING COLE

    good stuff

  • M.T

    Congrats to Nas! first album I bought since Cole’s and it was worth every penny. This is definitely the best album of 2012 so far and my second fav Nas album after God’s Son.

  • Mag

    Congrats to Nas. The quality definitely boasted sales. I was thinking 80k last month before he started releasing a slew of good music.

    As for Ross, I gonna set the goal at 200k. Love him or hate him, Rozay is one of the biggest stars in hip-hop right now, it would bad look if he didn’t. I won’t be surprised if he doesn’t sale that much tho.

  • rahrahrah

    More than 2 decades in the game. Respect is due! Wish we had Coltrane, Marley, Hendrix for this long, some of the greatest to ever do it in their respective genres. One love.

    Still haven’t bought the album yet though…

  • Clos1881

    @billy dee it’s not hate Nas is special because he makes the music he wants which is amazing to have number 1 albums and not conform 50 tries to conform to sell albums so his and Nas goals are different 50’s a buisness man Nas is a artist but no hate for 50 though they just have different priorities

  • SKIDAROC

    What’s crazy though, is there is probably million folks that have the album right now.

  • DOZEZ

    NY!

  • JustMyOpinion

    Classic album, no question. Well deserved.

  • Jungle

    50 can’t even do 160k free downloads in one week right now! That murder by numbers trash ain’t move shit. Plus his budgets are way bigger gtfoh with that

  • JustMyOpinion

    @ CROMER BEATS you didn’t make a beat for the album?

    Guess you wasting your time posting those beats. Back to the basement you go. Ha

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    William L. Roberts has never sold over 200K first week#FACT

  • REMO

    CONGRATS TO NAS UR ALREADY DOUBLE PLATINUM IN THESE STREETS…THIS NIGGA HAS ABOUT 4 TO 5 CLASSIC SOLID ALBUMS…AS FOR ROSS HE DOING ABOUT 300K FIRST WEEK IF THE SELF MADE 2 COMP DID 100K FIRST WEEK OVER 300K ISNT FAR FETCHED FOR ROSS

    NAS THE G.O.A.T

  • wizsucks

    If that fat fake fuck Rick Ross outsells Nas then Hip Hop truly is dead

  • miz

    Dope album. Deserves a #1.

  • Larry

    congrats Nas. you deserve it.

  • Word

    There’s no double standard. You gotta adjust your expectations based on the artist. Imean, not everybody that doesn’t do a mill first week like Taylor Swift or Adele is considered a flop, and based on the artist certain sales ppl consider low are good.

    If Adele did this? Huge flop. Terrible based on her standards. Same goes with Eminem and GaGa. But.artist like Cole Wale Wiz Mac Miller and so on touching 100k is great cuz their sales standards are low. Most would expect 40k from Nas. 139k is great. But for 50? After boasting bout his sales the last decade? This would be pathetic for him.

  • Citylivin’

    plus Nas ain’t got 6,000,000!! followers on twitter…

  • http://twitter.com/jayoconn jayoconn

    Nas got 757,739 twitter followers…..and millions of fans who dont even use twitter. he should have at least broke 200k….

    we gotta do a better job of supporting the culture!

    i purchased the album off itunes, so its not like im preaching just to preach.

  • broski

    hahahahahahahahha you a dumb fuck…….first off all ^^^^^^^
    rick ross never sold over 200k on his album first week… what makes him goin to sell 250-300k now… you dumb fuck JEEZY DOES 233K easy gold 4weeks easy…. ross will not do that shit

  • Guess What

    I’m proud of Nas. He stayed TRUE to his hip hop roots despite the pop garbage we hear & see everyday. He stayed far away from GAY MONEY & plenty of ppl (especially the streets) are very happy about that. The album is crazy, you don’t have to skip any song. *throws confetti*

  • Billy D

    I agree that 50 and Nas got two different goals but cmon…Before I Self Destruct moved 166k and it leaked 1 month early and the budget on that album sucked…Iovine didnt give a shit about that album….Nas is a legend…but so is 50 in his own lane…just kills me with the high standard for 50 when people claim everybody is else is so much better than him yet cant break 200k. With all the industry behind Ross if he dont do 400k he is a failure….MMG will fall apart as soon as Meek comes in August and roasts his own boss in sales.

  • King

    Best Album out this year!!

  • Ryuk

    Life is Good is awesome. And that’s saying the least. Go buy it. It’ll be gold in a month. Even faster if Def Jam does a ‘Daughters’ remix W/ Hov & Em. Just saying.

  • http://www.iaii.com Iyah.

    RapRadar, you post a picture of Nas with 3 other people and expect us to know who they are and why you are using that picture?

    Worlds an addiction feat. anthony hamilton is straight fire!!!!!

  • Angelo

    This is actually a shame! He puts out the BEST Hip Hop album of the last 7,8 years and people don’t even support it. SMH…Hip Hop fans can be the worst. Put your money where your mouth is! Should’ve pushed 300-400K 1st week off the quality of the album.

  • @SelectahSnipa

    Classic!

  • JMillionaire

    Black Excellence #congrats #life is good # I brought the album

  • Ummah_es_Salaam

    politic for nas. every nigga I talked to I asked did they buy the album and told em to go buy that bitch. we the fans and the ones that make the culture relevant gotta do our part stop being cheap. a nigga wont get caught dead wearing bootleg J’s and Mike dont give really give a fuck about Black people or minorities in general. just ask and tell mafuckas to go and buy that album erybody might not have it at the time just keep it on ya circles mind. to at least send a message to the industry cause like it or not these dudes and females are our public speakers of today: the malcolms, martins, stokelys, seales, clevers, newtons, baldwins, and davis’ and all the ones who arent known yet

  • Ummah_es_Salaam

    for the future

  • Jayman

    Much respect to Nas every album Platinum. Keep up the good work and continue to spread knowledge for generations to come.

  • Steve daddy

    first week sales are irrelevant to someone like nas.

    Gods son didnt sell like that either 1st week but it went double platinum in a month.

  • Real Talk

    There are some true IDIOTS on the forum…Nas has the # 1 album in the country!!!! Name a legendary hip hop artist with 20 years in the game selling 149k? Billboard reporting that Nas did 149k first week! While you haters try to discredit Nas’ sells he continues to make millions & succeed!

  • dodo

    dude always kept it real and true to hip-hop. much respect.

  • King

    @Jayman not trying to sound offensive but “Hip-Hop Is Dead” n “Ni**er” are both Gold…and this will go Gold although it deserves to reach Platinum sales.

  • Lil Majer The Cartune

    Fxcking Aye!!! Proud to be apart of these record sales! Might buy the actual physical copy this week! Nas deserves this! Take that Kelis!! Lol

  • Converse

    Nas keep winning

    Sometimes it pays to have integrity.

    nas is a living legend, he is part of the reason hip hop is growing as a form of art and music.

  • dopeaom

    @everyone saying it’s a shame and how it’s weak numbers for an album that is so good and the best of this year and whatever…

    Quality shows in sales over a long term, marketing and gimmick show in first week. If the album is so good that you all keep saying it and spreading the word, it will keep on selling good numbers week after week after week backed up by word of mouth about it’s quality and maybe a future single and tour.

    Gimmick and marketing sells high numbers first week and then has an 80% drop the second week, by the third it’s barely selling anything.

    Also, someone mentioned a wishful Daughters remix with Em and Jay. Nas already said talked about it in an interview about a week or two ago, and said he thought of that idea too but that Em declined because he felt he had talked about that subject too much already and Jay couldn’t do it due to ”busy schedule” or something.

    Reblogged this on Hip Hop 'Til You Drop and commented:
    Nas’ 10 solo album– he’s still doing it! and doing it well. Coming from the era of Biggie and Pac, Nas still is respected in the real hip hop ring and nothing is more real than that. Awesome post.

    nas. niggas against society. the god.
