    I've heard all of his albums and most of it seemed like it wasn't sample based. No big deal, I've been wrong before. As for Wolf, it's a good album that's still sinking in.
    As for myself: I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing sacred about myself or any human being, that we were all machines, doomed to collide and collide and collide.

    Shaolin vs. Wu-Tang did better than all of them with 29,000 copies in the first week, but that's cuz Rae had the momentum of Cuban Linx II in his favor

    Wu-Massacre sold 37,900 copies in its first week, debuting at #12

    haha, ok braj, but there are only three tracks (by other artists) sampled on Wolf and all would have been cheap as fuck:

    Lone (2013) sampled Jornada by Wilson Das Neves (1969)

    Partyisntover / Campfire / Bimmer (2013) emulated Invitation by Cal Tjader (1971)

    Pigs (2013) sampled Amen, Brother by The Winstons (1969)

    Tamale (2013) sampled Sam Is Dead by Tyler, the Creator and Domo Genesis (2012)


    I don't know why you're trying to make this thread about his album but he obviously made a lot more money personally off Wolf than Ghost did off this. Tyler released it on his own label, signing a distribution deal with Sony, and he's going to sell hundreds of thousands of copies internationally...

    15k for real aint bad for an album that barely had any kind of promotion at all.
    a concept album at that. those never do crazy numbers.

    shits dope.



    and tyler is everywhere. him doing 80k is not surprising at all.

    I just listened to Twelve Reasons To Die at Amazon.com and i didn't like it because of the beats. Ghostface can still rap.
