Ladies & Gentlemen there is a new first week sales king and his name is Weezy F. Baby.
C4 is the highest-selling rap album, and highest-selling album from a male artist, period, since Wayne’s 2008, Tha Carter III, which sold 1,005,000 units in its first week. The disc is the second highest-selling LP of 2011 behind Lady Gaga’s Born this Way, which sold 1.1 million. Weezy sold C4 for full price, while Gaga had her CD on sale for 99 cents during her first week.
Billboard reports that Tha Carter IV broke the record for the highest-selling album on iTunes in its first week with 345,000 digital copies downloaded.
You may or may not believe the numbers but you have to Congratulate Mr. Carter on making history.
