    So many blacks and lame people hate Jay.. I don't know if they hate progression in life or they are just as lame as their ancestors before they were captured and brought to the US. Get out of Hov's plan fools

    I don't count the 1m samsung sales (they where bought by a company and given away free to their samsung phone users)Great and smart by Jay don't get me wrong, but until I see the final numbers (minus the samsung milli sales) thats his real net sales for me gross - (samsung bullshit) = true sales just my take on it

      Do the Born Sinner albums sales bought by J Cole and Drake count? I'm not saying I disagree, but give it more thought. If you sell a million...you sell a million regardless. It's a mind puzzle to wrap around though the idea of a company buying 1 million before the album is not availble....But its just like if Samsung throws a party and buys 1 mil. albums to give to the party's guests..those albums were still sold. Get me?

      Eminem's next album probably won't sell that well to be honest. Recovery was way too hit and miss and Hell:The Sequel with Royce was garbage. Every single he's put out or been on has been garbage. His flow is too complex for its own good and he's got nothing left to say. He's trying to do the Slim Shady cartoon violence but he's 40 so no one cares anymore. His next album will be lucky to sell 500K first week.
