Kanye's "Ye" sold 208,316 equivalent units

Black Thought's album sold 9,864 equivalent units.

These are the facts.

My question is wether this is Black Thought's official solo album, or this considered a collaboration album with 9th Wonder?

Black Thought is an incredible artist. One of the greatest.

For someone at his caliber amongst passionate hip hop fans - can he sell 200,000 in these times?

This is the music business. Sales matter.

Kanye is actually doing very, very well as he just hit the #1 spot again.

That is consistency.

I haven't heard either album.

The reason I made this post is to present the real life numbers and what you guys thing about this.

consistency is makig good music, sales do not matter

i am equally a cube and a redman fan cause
of their early work which was musically great but didnt sale as much

my favorite krs albums havent did not go platinum back in the days, for me and this is a personal point of view GOOD MUSIC IS ALL THAT MATTERS WHEN IT COMES TO CONSISTENCY

What’s your point? Everyone already knows name recognition sells. People probably have no idea who Black Thought is, Kanye went on a complete publicity stunt to sell those 200k. First hanging w Trump, then saying slavery was a choice, having his wife at White House, stir up fake beef w Drake by using Pusha-T, and then finally Family Fued. Even with all this publicity it’s 200k (solid by today’s standards obviously), but his is almost burnt out. Black Thought is a GOAT and his respect and love will never be measured by sales. Does that pay the bills? Short answer is no, but he is doing fine w Fallon etc. Salute to BT one of the best to ever do it. Kanye can go fuck himself.

felipedahiphopadict01 - I agree with you 100% there. I too am a big fan of Krs One and Redman. I wonder how well albums like Redman's first three sold or Krs Ones the year they dropped.

Over time great music carries on - like OBFCL.

recumbent_God - That's right Captain Obvious is back in da house! lol

Greg_h._Valentine - Very well said. You're on point. I too wanted to add about name or brand recognition.
You are right in pointing out to everything that led up to Ye's album release. I don't know how much of it was premeditated marketing - but the way you lay it out seems that way. Either that, or Kanye just knows how to affect the mainstream media - I think that's one of his talents.

You are right that Black Thought has a good with with Jimmie Falon.

Kinda adds to my list of what rappers do after the rap doesn't bring in the money

50 Cent - TV
Dre - Headphones
Jay Z - 40/40 Club
Lots of underground rappers - 9-5 jobs
Drake - still sells but has restaurants, Raptors stuff
Black Thought - consistent late night gig
Breeze brewin - Teacher

add on if you know what others do

Prof its all good.

What if Black Thought could sell 300 000 albums first week?

Thatd be great.

Pusha T's new one sold under 50 000 I think.

The numbers are on hip hop dx now.

If black thought went on TV ten years ago and said bush doesnt care about black people, tried to physically take a grammy away from taylor swift, or married a major reality TV star then appeared on her show, he'd sell 300k plus

If he acted like a twat and performed a publicity stunt EVERY SINGLE TIME the roots dropped any music over the past decade, he'd do big numbers.

But he isnt a twat, and thats why he raps like a down to earth, focused, talented MC.

Just remember that the other most popular things in America are superhero films, fast food, How I Met Your Mother, and whatever 2,000$ shoes Kim Kardashian has on her feet

I sound like ollie

Prof I see your point.

What works for some doesn't work for others.

If Thought did thise things thatd be weird as fuck.

Its all character. What you say is right tho in America's climate.

I don't like how sloppy some companies are.

A Black Thought album should have cds and vinyls available.

Labels ignoring product roll out rules.

I get it.

Physicals dont sell as much.

Even Daytonas not available yet.

Still. Physicals should be availavle on release date.

Daytona does have preorders.

In my world an album should be avaible when it says so.

Streaming gave mad passes for sloppy business.

I feel like Thought probably had zero marketing. They should've promoted that shit on Fallon.

Also, Kanye just announces an album and 200,000 people from all different backgrounds lap that shit up for whatever reason- probably cus it's pop.

Still, kinda surprised 200,000 people give a shti about Kanye at this point.

Yo felipe here's the album...



Yo Crumps is this a troll thread? Kanye isn't doing well cause of his music. It's cause he created a brand for himself along with his controversial tweets last month or so. He knows what he's doing from a business perspective.

If it wasn't for Jimmy Fallon 50% of The Roots fan would've never heard of them. This comparison is apples and oranges.

Smelly - I don't know what I did to make you cry, but I'm sorry.

I made this post to discuss 2018 album sales for rap music.

I don't sell tens of thousands but my music does sell.

This post isn't about me.

I love Black Thought.

He's top 10 for certain.

I just want to see him and similar artists sell 200 000 plus.

Smelly Mel - you're doing well here.

You like Nems so do I 👍;

Beatsmith - trans and Satanism isn't as bad as they are meant out to be.

Unless Satanism means criminal activity.

I have sold thousands. Not a quarter of what Kanye sells.

Do you think Kanye is more relevant than 50 Cent in 2018?

Whats da ughh consensus?

Black Thought is a way better artists. He’s your favorite rappers favorite rapper.

Kanye’s name and publicity sells his shitty music.

Nobody knows who Black Thought is in the mainstream. They might know the Roots....maybe.....but the name Black Thought
