    Guess white people gettin tired of urban music cause the only people selling big numbers are cats like Mumford and Sons, Taylor Swift…

  • Black Shady

    damn Kdot sold more than Cole. I was expecting him to do 175-200k. WOW really impressed

    Congrats to the kid. Really DELIVERED on his debut!!! Proud to see him success.

  • Fire Marshall D.O.O.B

    ^^^^ Dumbass nigga comparing HipHop to other genres sales! “You too infatuated with the numbers. Which makes it easier to divide and conquer!”

  • stoppp ittt

    SMH… FUCK taylor swift bitch ass. good thing kanye fucked her moment up. hiphop aint 1million because of her. i digress..

  • More Bread Plzzz

  • Fire Marshall D.O.O.B

    @Damn!!!!

  • trex

    The Shyne line lol S.O to my ninja Kendrick Lamar. West Coast King

  • Donn

    Taylor’s album is dope too, she deserves it, she writes her own hits. Kendrick u deserve it too. Great album. If u like other genres of music, go get Mumford & Sons album

  • M.T

    Congrats to Kendrick. The album was incredible and one of the best ive heard in a while. I wasnt expecting him to sell nearly this much but when the music is as good as this, people tend to actually go out and buy. GKMC is the album of the year with Life is Good in second. Also shout out to Taylor Swift. 1.2 million though? thats crazy.

  • White Shady

    Relapse >>>>>>>>>>> good kid, m.A.A.d city

  • Zagga

    Wow I thought he’d do good #s but I didn’t think he do 240K and outsell Ross’ first week for GFID. Congrats to KDot, he deserves it!

  • wondering

    where can i view the full list of the sales does anyone know?

  • https://yfrog.com/a/img814/4738/f9fsl.jpg @rowjayC.O.B

    THAT IS GREAT AND FOR A NEW ARTIST WITH HIS FIRST ALBUM LOL I BET OFFICER RICKY CANT BELIEVE IT

  • IamRealTalk (Now That GFID is 2 Times Platinum…My Job is Done! ) ( Now Go Out and Support Kendrick Lamar October 22nd !!! )

    THANK GOD HE DIDNT OUTSELL ROZAY FIRST WEEK…THAT WOULDVE BEEN EMBARRASING FOR MTV’S HOTTEST RAPPER IN THE GAME

  • G.O.O.D.BoySwag

    @Stoner Logic is at it again. Making dumb fuckin comments. Your CD player must not work in your car or something bruh

  • http://www.freshmenmusic.com Mark Byrd

    If I’m not mistaken, K. Dot has the highest 1st week sales of any hip hop artist this year…. A huge accomplishment especially at the fact it’s not full of “radio” singles and “hit” records… it’s a story from front to back, album of substance and still held it’s own…. GREAT FOR HIP HOP…. as far as Taylor’s sales…. bound to happen!

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

    Solid album… Thumbs up

  • IamRealTalk (Now That GFID is 2 Times Platinum…My Job is Done! ) ( Now Go Out and Support Kendrick Lamar October 22nd !!! )

    @Mark Byrd

    HE DID NOT OUTSELL RICKY ROZAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wtf ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

  • @tshiamofs

    Nicki Minaj had a higher first week I think

  • Kenny’s Dominos

    Nice numbers, apparently 212k people didnt let hip hop die on October 22nd. I got my copy.

    Now lets see if meek mill will do good #s.
    At least if it doesn’t do well they can blame that bitch, Sandy.

  • Kenny’s Dominos

    *242k

  • Cali760

    Taylor Swift will always sell no matter what. Awesome job K. Dot.

  • Stoner Logic

    @good boy swag

    lil boy please stop

  • dumb niggas these days

    NOBODY TALKING BOUT THIS TRACK THOUGH?!?!?!

  • Word

    Few months ago I didn’t expect him to do this well but as I heard the album, and as it came closer to album time, I expected him to do close to Coles numbers. Didn’t expect him to top Cole but I gotta give him credit for topping Cole sales and quality wise cuz GKMC is an amazing album, and the type of quality I expected from Coles debut ( although I still enjoy his album).

    GKMC shows that ppl still buy hip hop without the lead pop single. Just put the album out and trust ur fan base. I honestly expected under 100k from Kendrick months ago and I’m glad he did this well.

    Now, I also expect Meek to do well.

  • Word

    I’ll give Meek Wales first week numbers as a over/under. Anywhere over that won’t surprise me (unless its past 250k).

  • https://yfrog.com/a/img814/4738/f9fsl.jpg @rowjayC.O.B

    THIS IS GREAT NEWS FOR HIP HOP AND NEEDS TO BE MOVED TO THE NO 1 SPOT FOOL

  • dumb niggas these days

    YO THIS INTRO REMIND ME OF SOME PAC SHIT

  • M.T

    “I pray to God this beat is good enough for Shyne. If not J.Cole your shit is trash.”
    Also this song is fire! soo ready for this cole and kendrick collabo.

  • AFRICANBOY

    Pressure on Meek!!! Still better than any Ross first week sales

  • LO

    shout out to taylor swift she is hot and sexy and rich

  • No Idols

    Poor Weak Mill, he aint gettin anywhere near K.Dot numbers… even his boss didnt do K.Dot numbers.

  • pp

    is the label that taylor swift is on actually called “big machine” or is that just a joke?

    Lol how you gonna say damn you Taylor, like Kendrick was going to push more than that even if she didn’t drop same day? C’mon son….

  • 1980 MY POPS NUTTED

    DO DO DO DO DO..kdot got the best gunshots in the game(yak yak yak)

  • Tbones

    @1980, LMAO, them gunshots soundbites funny as hell. Wat kinda gun fires n sounds like that?

  • KILLA

    Shoutout to Kendrick Lamar on the sales. But unless Nicki Minaj is no longer considered RAP she will currently have the highest first week sales for a rap album this year with 254,000 with Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. I kinda feel bad for Meek Mill though because I doubt is album will pass 150K for some reason. I guess we’ll see.

  • CHIPS

    Should be the top selling first week rap album of the year, after all it is the best rap album of the last 2 years.

  • Hip-Hop Fiend

    Coongrats to K. Dot show people still care about REAL music. Damn Taylor Swift just sold 1.2 Mill first week in 2012 record sales climate you gotta give her props. Taylor just did that with ease while Nicki Minaj tries all the gimmicks and still can’t go gold first week. But the most impressive is Mumford & Sons them motherfuckers did over 600K first week INDEPENDENTLY…

  • CaliSteppin

    Lmao @1980

  • Brooklyn

    Why is hip-hop the most popular genre of music but fans don’t buy the music? I remember when a label would drop a artist for selling under gold. I’m Taylor Swift never has to worry about her shit getting leak her fans will still go out and support. What the fuck happened?

  • http://jdareal.com sway-z

    Personally, I’m glad Hip Hop ain’t selling like that, maybe now niggas will stop worrying about it and start making music they want instead of shit they think is gonna move.

  • Kunta Kente

    242K people bout the album but 2 Million motherfuckers bumpin that shit. Congrats!

  • eyes lower than shyne record sales

  • KoldCase

    album of the year congrats kdot

    proud to say i bought 2

  • Donn

    I think fans arent’ as critical in other genres. We sit here and comment on ppl’s clothes, complain about every little thing while other genre’s of music don’t really fill the comment sections of Taylor Swift or Mumford, they just support who they like and feel no need to fight about it with anybody else. Support your artist and be proud of it, simple as that. You can kop weed, jordans but can’t buy a cd?

  • ECU

    Well earned n more 2 come

  • ECU

    ^^ COSIGN

  • Ya Bish!

    #’s and quality music. What more ya want from the nigga? Cole should just produce K.Dots whole next album.

  • beezy

    TAYLOR SWIFT WON

  • eyes lower than shyne record sales

    grrrr id fuckin bend taylor swift over and give her that swift dick

  • RIGHT NOW

    Taylor Swift doin Weezy numbers

  • Taylor Swift Out Sells Niggers

    This is Taylor Swift 2nd time selling over 1 Million in a week. Hip-Hop can keep out. Black people don’t buy music there too busy buying $200 beat by dre head phones like there something special. Why can’t BLACK PEOPLE buy music. Is it really that much to spend $10 on a album? But you spend well over $100 on weed weekly. BLACK PEOPLE killd urban music industry.

  • young
  • leafy

    this album is dipe shit, album of the year is life is good though, kendrick is the west coat future tho and he on the rise to detrown game as comptons king

  • bucks

    gkmc is a fucken classic period!

  • Safe Dwade

    Holy shit she did 1.2!!??

  • King E

    Great job K.Dot, if you had the same support as Taylor’s fanbase, you would be hitting at least 500,000 easy but white people do support their fav artists, we just gotta do the same.

    But not taking away from the quality of the music on the album, because it’s great no matter
    how many albums K.Dot sold.

  • congrats

    Yup a big congrats to Kendrick definitely do deserve it I bought 2 copies 2 support that album is well worth it
