Now that Kendrick flopped, can we give Future his spot in the big 3?

im a fan of future but kendrick outdid him in sales still by a some 10s of thousands despite him underperfoming

plus he has the biggest first week sales of this year to.

i understand talking shyt given the underwhelming first week sales, but that don't erase dude has the No. 1 first week sales for a rap album this year

only people who can possibly out do him is either YE, Drake, or Cole this year

what kendrick's sales do show tho, is that the order in which some peopke had it that Kendrick was certified No. 2 behind Drake is very likely not true anymore.

plus with this album and its reception by masses, Kendrick might be going back down to No. 3 which is where he was when TPAB came out.

If Cole does himself justice by knocking it out the park Ala 2014 FHD in hits and replay value by the masses

Cole will be back at. No. 2 again out of that 3 possibly

Future put up basically same numbers as Kendrick without a 5 year rollout or hype behind it

This is fact

Kendrick is trending down
295K>>>> 227K. That is not basically the same. It is nearly 70K more. Kendrick did not have a 5 year rollout. Album was just announced like 2-3 weeks in advance. He had a 5 year hiatus.

In terms if hype. Future had plenty of hype.

Future is definitely in top 5. But Kendrick, Drake and Cole all rap. Future don’t rap.

album sales numbers are a terrible metric to judge an album's quality by.

It really is....the funny thing is that I have a lot of music conversations in real life and sales are NEVER brought up unless you're talking to someone in the industry. I don't recall it ever being a thing in Hip-hop until that 50 cent Kanye thing....but it makes sense I guess Hip-Hop was a counter-culture for minorities at one point and it's full blown mainstream now so I get it kind of

I was chopping it up with some of my nephews over the weekend asking what they've been bumping and none of the "Big 3" got brought up.
they mentioned a ton of artists I've never heard of and showed me footage of some show they all went too. shyt looked LIT AF prolly 200 kids @ the venue smoked out turning up.
