    YoungBoy 1-2k REAL copies but them streams got him a #1

    this streaming era makes zero sense..
    Wale hate threads are hilarious, you idiots just be saying anything .. ''oh i heard he was mean to so and so'' sound like a bunch of fakkits.

    drake a biting, no lyric writing, whore impregnating liar but you dummies stan him to death

    The thing that pisses us fans off is he has those songs and doesnt use them :snoop:
    Shine had Mathematics, Scarface/Rozay/Gotti, even had a Chris Brown feature he somehow didnt turn into a single
    Wow... has a posse cut with all 3 on the track for the first time in forever. That should have been the lead single and drove all the hip-hop heads to his album but he didnt use it to lead. Every interview would have been asking him about them reuniting for his album but he now has to answer questions about his light skin gf and anxiety. Nothing about the album... lol. On Chill would have been a perfect second single for the fall and still would have went platinum.

    Long story short, they know their fans primarily stream so they don't even bother pressing up physical copies. 75% of how music is consumed comes from streaming.


    A Boogie went #1 and sold 823 copies

    Wale's been too inactive and has tarnished his image pretty bad over the years so not surprised.

    I don't believe Wale is anywhere near as good as he believes or alot of hiphop heads believe he is.

    are you somehow claiming Wale music goes over people’s head?

    inactive?

    I think he released 3 projects last year

    the new king of NY

    I think this is majority opinion in rap

    Never understood why anyone was a fan in the first place, from the jump sounded like a weed plate impersonation of Little Brother and was immediately disinterested.

    Wale never evolved as an artist.

    He has had the same flow and cadence for 10+ years.

    Nope. I’m claiming he doesn’t ride waves just to be hot/relevant.

    he was always a boring artist to me never really got into him seems like he makes a good amount of hits but they don't seem to really make moves chart wise.
