Good for them if it's true, but I'm sure there's a repeated digit in there somewhere - you just don't get those kind of figures for an underground album.

cant be true. only 35k was shipped.

digital sales are the rest, and i doubt that many people downloaded.

that could be total downloads per song though, and with 15 songs.....meaning, (does the math)
52,533....still way to high for 1 day though.

sounds way too high for these days, i mean Royce Da 5'9", Joell Ortiz, Joe Buddens and Crooked I aren't directly very popular as solo artists. 50 Cent did about those numbers his first week in 2007... we'll see what hiphopdx.com says tomorrow when they update their album sales.

maybe it's the worldwide number and not the US soundscan though.

lol

of course its not true. if they did 78,000 they were lucky.

looking at the rest of onebelo's tweets, hes clearly a slumberhouse STAN, and hes just trying to clever gain attention.

its just a PR stunt to boost sales

eminem (one of the best selling rappers ever) sold 600,000 in a week, and wasn't this album out today?

it's just the joe fuckin fanboys getting boners and coming up with this fake as bullshit

It's a marketing gimmick to make people think this is the album that everyone else is buying. I remember when Kool Keith's "Matthew" album dropped and on the front of the CD it had a sticker saying that the album shipped GOLD (500k). Later on in a interview that Kut Masta Kurt (producer) did, he admitted that the album sold about 50k. I think that Slautherhouse's & Raekwon's total album sales combined won't get near that number.

They will still sell more than these wu-stans that are totally out of contact with the real world projects though.

I'm a Wu-fan, so you're basically saying Wu's lyrics don't hit hard when you say I'm scared of hard hitting lyrics. I got a Kool G Rap avatar..

But I'm first of all a fan of good music,

i lived in iceland for a year when i was like 10..the only thing i really remember was how clean it was and how there was always hot water in the shower...30 minutes in, still the same temperature, it was awesome....and also a place called the blue lagoon which was an outdoor lagoon naturally heated..people would go there in the middle of the cold-ass winter and go for a nice warm swim

digi snax did like 3000 its first week. i remember cause immortal technique sold like 3500 and beat him.

slaughterhouse pressed 32000 copies of the disc and sold 18000? debuted at number 26 on the billboard 200?
thats damn good in 2009, dont kid yourselves. these boys did alright.

08-19-2009, 02:36 PM
I guess if your a fan you dont really give a shit what they sell.

Personally I think with the amount of interent blog attention theyve been getting, 18,000 has gotta be a major blow to them. I think thats a fucking shocking total IMHO. Im not just saying that, I honestly thought they would sell alot more.

I mean come on, even Fabolous is selling 160,000 this week. His album fucking sucked too.

This is very interesting though. It proves once again internet nerd blog hype DONT MEAN SHIT. In reality, its still the "street" (whatever that is) that decides whos hot and whos not.

BTW, as theres 4 of them, thats 18k divided by 4 = 4,500 each.

You gotta say this whole Joe Budden humiliation has damaged them. Oh yeah btw Jo Buddens solo album The Escape Route, sold 1,700 units this week. (released this week)

main_man
08-19-2009, 02:40 PM
yeah, but fabolous (or whatever) punk ass has been on a media tear for a week or 2. and the 160000 is his total sales since he came out, not his weekly (if there is a god. lol)

all slaughterhouse has is lyrics and a shoulder punch as hype. lol.

but honestly, its hard as fuck for a hip hop artist on the underground circuit to sell even 50000 in 2009. sad but true.
