Prior to knowing what Drake's final numbers would be his Young Money boss Lil Wayne spoke to MTV about getting a point across with the disc.
"We expect to work very hard. We expect people to respect our hard work," Weezy said. "Pardon me for sounding however I sound with this statement, but we rich as sh*t. So, numbers and record sales that doesn't matter to none of us. We just wanna get a perfect point across. If we get that done with the album... mission accomplished."
