It appears that the motto C.R.E.A.M. is as relevant as ever. Bedford-Stuyvesant’s very own Maino seems to agree and teams up Lil Wayne for his latest track, fittingly titled “I’m About Cream.” The track is taken from Maino’s upcoming will The Day After Tomorrow project which is due this Fall. Check it out below

Baby explains that it would be “hustling backwards” to buy extra albums to bolster first week sales.

Yesterday, it was announced that Lil Wayne had sold 964,000 copies of his latest, Tha Carter IV, in its first week. But some cried foul, speculating that the label purchased extra albums to try to push the album past the million sales mark.

During an interview with MTV News, Birdman refuted the rumors, claiming that buying extra copies of the LP is opposite of what the label stands for.

“Nah, man, that really don’t make no sense. Why would we do that?” he said. “I press and distribute ’em. Ain’t no need for me to buy ’em. That’s hustling backwards; we ain’t in it for that. I ain’t ever been a part of that type of scheme to be buyin’ records. We don’t do that, homey. We be working too hard to be — that don’t go with what we do. We truly what we do. We’re real about what we do, we work hard every day at it, and we work for the people. That’s what we do music for: for people. And we appreciate the love they give us back. But no such thing as me buying no CDs. I wouldn’t even play it like that.”

Baby did explain that the label makes about $10 per album sale, which would tally up direct revenue from the album to almost $10 million.

 

In just four days out, Weezy’s latest sells more than 300,000 copies in the digital store.

Just a few weeks after Jay-Z and Kanye West broke the first week sales record for iTunes with Watch the Throne, Lil Wayne accomplished the same feat with his latest album Tha Carter IV in just four days.

According to HHNM, Weezy has sold more than 300,000 copies of his latest offering since it hit the web on early Monday at midnight. In its first week, TC4 is now expected to move between 925,000 and 975,000 copies, whereas earlier estimates put the album between 850,000 and 900,000 units.

In its first week out, Watch the Throne broke Coldplay’s previous iTunes record for first week sales, moving roughly 290,000 copies.

This was supposed to be on Spitta’s latest mixtape ‘Verde Terrace’ but he broke his ankle and just checked his email today to find Wayne’s verse and decides to release it.

Curren$y and Lil Wayne are celebrating their (audio) reunion on the final edit of “Smoke Sumthin'”. This version was supposed to land on the Verde Terrace-mixtape, but since Tunechi sent over his verse today, Spitta decided to bless his followers with the real deal.

There is no doubt that Lil Wayne’s lyrics on “It’s Good” and their relation to Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé are the talk of the industry right now. Vibe caught up with the “skateboarding Gremlin” for an upcoming October/November story and conversed with him about possible second thoughts about recording his acidic verse and the resulting buzz.

“I know there won’t be any repercussions behind what I did. I know for a fact music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. I know that for a fact. So I can’t ever be upset about someone’s reaction. I’m not going to say I don’t know what would happen before I even say [something on record]. I do know what will happen. I’m aware of it. But it is what it is.”
