@ Infamous and others I am being a realist, not hating...why nowadays people cant have an opinion everything is hatred...I love Hip Hop I dont care who's face is on it I have supported rappers for over 20 years and I am entitled to an opinion...this new world of Hip Hop makes it hard for people to formulate their own opinions without being ridiculed so most of us have to act like mules and just follow...I'm not and never will be a follower, if I feel it, I say it and if I dont, I will say so...point blank period

Since the numbers game started, almost all labels send out agents to buy their artist's albums...if you dont believe me get to know someone that works or use to work for a label and willing to tell the truth. Think about it, why wouldn't they? nowadays people are so fixated with how an album sales, not the content within it that if your artist makes news for his/her sales it gets more people feeling they have to get it...wouldn't you do the same? Labels are about business, money, labels are ran by accountants and lawyers, they can careless about what's on the album, all the want is the latest fad that brings in bucks...labels are ran by people who are insensitive to art and music, most label owners dont like Hip Hop, they love cash....numbers my dear Watson...numbers...the bigger the numbers look on paper the more profitable the artist so for Young Money you invest 1 million on Drake's album sales, take all the albums you buy resale them to retailers, they get scanned twice and what is really 250k in sales can look like 462k very quickly...

As for my opinion on the album, I never said it was bad and if I said anything about not going out to buy it, my apologies as I cant tell anyone what to do with their money...what I stand by is my opinion that this album was a HUGE let down when you consider the hype behind it...I listened to Eminem which came out a week later and it drew a lot of emotion out of me which is what music is supposed to do...I'm sure there are people that love Drake's album, it's just not necessarily my cup of tea...it sounds repetitive and I enjoy the tracks with the features mostly because of the featured artists...to me that's not what a debut album for an artist that is being considered the face of hip hop supposed to sound like...I remember the hype for 50 debut album and when I got the album I actually felt it surpassed the expectations and till this day one of the best I ever bought...if it was wack, I would have said I think it was wack...I expected the same feeling from Drake's but I didn't get it...it's a simple opinion...personally I do like Drake and I think he can be a beast with some tweaking and I definitely see him going Hollywood and being around for a long time...but this album disappointed me...it's not hate just my two cents

wow only 100k to get plat in canada? that seems low...but yea labels do buy a certain quantity on the spot but thats not what makes the diff. drake is definitely moving units...banks is about 2 weeks away from gold on a single and INDEPENDENT...now thats worthy of anyone's respect ! LET IT BE ABOUT BANKS!!!! G-UNIT BABY!
