  2. rell Says:

    Young money the album goes hard I copped without even hearing bought a release date man fuck niggas gone hate just smile cuz that’s a job well done r r Roger that


  10. IExpectedMore Says:

    I did expect them to push more units especially with Wayne’s name behind thm and with Nicki and Drake on the album, but looking back on things now, I hink ppl are tired of Drake and are slowly tiring of Nicki. The group is getting a little over exposed. The timing the album dropped was off too. There were just too many albums that were dropped around the time. Eminem re-relesead an album and did better if you compare. Luckily they have a nice buzz now or this albm wouldve tanked. They have nothing to be disappointed about though. But I really think Wayne needs to hurry upand drop Nicki’s and Drake’s album before that buzz dues out. Nicki is on a blog site every other day now and people are losing interest even her fans for one reason or another. And Drake, well I definitely don’t hink he has the buzz he had before,. He has been way too many features.


  11. Kera Says:

    I expected it to sell alot more than what it did. It was supposed to go double platinum in dis bitch. It’s a conspiracy I tell you. Yall sold more. They just don’t want us to know. lol Album was great tho. Keep dem hitz comin.

    p.s: When the hell is “Thank Me Later” comin out. C’mon Drizzy I’m pullin my hair out ova here waitin on dis album man!!!!


  12. Maravish95 Says:

    one of the best album Lil Wayne has dropped, better than Rebirth, Bedrock & Pass That Dutch that hottest songs on the album especially becuase of the bass was sick, Nicki Minaj & Drake & Gudda Gudda made this album besides Tyga & Wayne the rest ithink they did ok like J Milzz !


  13. jb Says:

    i thought it wouldve sold more..due too the face it was sold out @ every store i went too when it first came out..i say by the in of the month aye milli…


  14. Double G's Says:

    MAAANNNNNNNN tat cd wasent all great i was expecting wayyyy beter thiers only 5 fucken songs i listen to in the whole fucken cd


  15. yana Says:

    it couldv’e done better but im glad that it sold as much copies as it did..some artist albums didn’t sell that much this month for the first week..CONGRATS.!!


  16. YUNGSWAGGA Says:

    I thought it would have done betta. But I mean 140k is a lot for a debut album most artist can’t evn mke it past 100k. So I think they did very well. And Drizzy Drake album is supposed 2 drop Feb 16th


  17. THE BEST Says:



  18. official female threat Says:

    young money are a bunch of frauds who all need eachother to sell or somebody cause each member alone is wack


  19. haters will hate Says:

    Have you notice that Drake was the only one from Young Money that didn’t promote the album.

    P.S. The majority of people believes Young Money is wack, not hating, just speaking the truth.


  20. TWEEZY Says:



  21. YungGinge Says:

    300K at least, i expect the album to go gold (US) within’ a Month, but seems like it may be a bit longer, agreed with other comments, the album was poorly promoted, with a cheap cover art of wayne placed off another image, also the amount of push backs most likly had an effect on the total sales and people get tired of waiting, althought from the success of both singles expected alot more sales. i tried to buy this album in the UK and i can not find it anywhere at all :/


  22. karinababie Says:

    i expected way more to be sold but never the less the album is dope! Wayne, Nicki, Drake, Tyga & all of YM kill it (:


  23. skool Says:

    this cd is so hard….. cant believe it only did 140k but maybe the sells will pick up after it gets it street buzz because it is a hott cd…


  24. snlgypsy Says:

    well im particularly surprised SNL was kicked out of YM.. or is she just not good enough to be remembered as part of YM for the WAYM album


  25. de'shaub1 Says:

    need ta git to at leas 600,000 n ia b satisfied


  26. humairrr Says:

    well i don’t think its bad at all, they’re close to 50’s BISD, so that says alot 😀


  27. t Says:

    i didnt like the album. theres not one song of substance on it. i love weezy but with all the ish goin on rite now we need to hear more than just explicit sexual materialistic and violent music. there are a couple of good songs but material wise t think it flopped, not numbers wise. i expected it to sell about that much. if they wldve switched up their subject matter a lil i thk they wldve sold more


  28. Trigga Says:

    SnL is not out the group and she was on the album just like Short Dawg was they were just only on 1 song each


  29. youngmoneyent Says:

    its alrite just want them to go platinum, and no other rap group probaly did it in this generation. ESPECIALLY dat wack azz g unit and d 12, that goes for them eminiem fans out there who thinks he’s better than weezy. best rapper and rap group ever


  30. bCharnae Says:

    Not Bad.. expected a TAD more, but young money has great potential. I can’t stop listening to Every Girl / Bedrock. If they keep hot songs and vids like that going then they’re good. Go YM~


  31. KaiC Says:

    For those that say young money is wack…

    Take wayne , drake, and niki out then yes they would be wack.


  32. YMCA Says:

    Dam this shit not worth the money thats why i got it for free before any dumb ass bought it and Waynes Rebirth is wack too…


  33. Gigga Says:

    True that! Both shit are wack and i bet Drakes album will suck too


  34. lennie[ms barbie] Says:

  36. puedam Says:

  37. blaze2crazy Says:

Em is way better then wayne, drake, jay, anybody… I been a drake fan since b4 he got inflated, when I used 2 show ppl drakes songs dey would say he wakk or neva gave a fukk but now ayebodys on his dikk! And I knew bout minaj since like 06 like kome on, shawty trash, best rappa hands down ondere is drake… not 2 hate but dat whole cd sounds like it was rushed and tossed 2getha, all nikki does is talk about how wet she gets and it dosent even make sence sometimes… won’t lie, thought they woulda sold more wit all da dikkridas, but ehh, I really kouldnt give a fukk


  38. D clark Says:

THAT WOULD BE DOPE


  40. SexxyBlack Says:

    Young Money sucks except Wayne and Drake. Nikkie wack as well.


  41. TRill Says:

    The album was str8. I think most of the songd were jus thrown together. Wayne slacked lyrically. I believe Mack Manie is the hardest in the group. Yea ppl he spit way harder the Drake. Overall it wasn’t bad. Did expect dat bih to do numbers though.


  42. JMize Says:



  43. denis G Says:

    haters man i dont understand yall talking about young money wack i bet ur ipod and itunes is full of lil wayne and young money music haha just sit back and let them do them .. the album was fucking sick have u heard roger that and shes gone.


  44. Sipp Says:

    Look I am the biggest rap fan alive I love lyrics. But at the sametime it’s more to rap than just rappin I like to hear niggaz talkin about somethin. This whole album lyrically was about nothin yea dem niggaz spittin but they ain’t talkin bout shit. I mean it’s kool to be a fan but don’t dick ride if the shit is wack it’s wack point blank period.. Stop actin like everything these niggaz do is tight cuz it’s not…..and whoever said Mack mane is better than drake your a fuckin idiot. I didn’t expect this album to go gold so I’m really not suprised


  45. sad Says:

    Drake reuses his lines all the time and he hasnt even dropped a cd yet. That right there tells you hes nothing but some jew looking to get on that young money dick. Shame on wayne for putting jimmy from degrassi on his crew lol should be called We Are Soft Money!


  46. jose Says:

    How did it not debut at #1 on billboard 200? B.o.b’s cd debuted at #1 with 88,000 sold first week????


  47. jose Says:

    It passed expectations>!!


  48. alexa Says:

    It passed expectations for being garbage. You all killed the rap game. weezy, drizzy? what’s with all these faggot ass names? wayne is a sellout, drake ain’t got no flow, boring as HELL, and raps JUST like wayne. nicki minaj is a talentless piece of shit who is the worst of all. and the rest of young money? no one even knows ya’lls names! aha unless you’re a corny ass follower of the worst record label out there.
