According to HitsDailyDouble.com, rapper Jay Z's 11th studio album, The Blueprint 3, is on pace to sell 300K in the first week.

BP3 leaked online last week forcing Atlantic Records to scrap plans to release the disc on the 8th anniversary of The Blueprint, which dropped on September 11, 2001.

Despite also being leaked early, and being overshadowed by the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the original Blueprint still managed to sell 426,000 copies that week.

BP3 will fall far short of that mark, and may not even go gold this year. By comparison, Jigga's "comeback" CD, Kingdom Come (2006), sold over 680,000 units its opening week.

Critics are already blaming BP3's tepid sales on the album's weak singles, particularly "Run This Town" featuring Knaye West and Rihanna.

    Don't speak on it Sandra, that will only promote this wack azz shyt and temp ZEUS to buy up some of his own LPs for sales numbers that "Don't lie"....300k....SMH, and he still won't STFU!!! What does it take for this man to understand nobody likes him anymore. Fake azz business man, old school DOPE BOY....its over. Wrap dat shyt up and burn it.

  • iscream

    :rofl: @ Krysi.. I love it!

    Can someone help me out... yall know my mind comes and goes. But I remember Lil Wayne album also was leaked early... did he sell 1 mill in a week? What was his 1st week numbers like.

    RAEKWON RAEKWON RAEKWON RAEKWON. That's who album I'm getting... maybe Jay's... Maybe.

  • coaretained

    isn't that what whiteny sold to get #1?? The music industry confuses me.

  • mizzdallas

    Jay-Z is a big ole QUEEN, the bootleggers already selling his shyt, I dont like to use the word"Hater" but thats exactly what the "Queen" Nas either his azz and spoke the truth about the "Queen"

  • mizzdallas

  • Shauny

    coar - there is a different excuse for whi flops and who doesn't. Someone can sell 80k and be #1 and da chit then someone can sell 400k and be a flop. Some people have better things to do than buy CDs these days. I'll have to wait on my hubby to get it to give my 2 cents review.

  • Daisy

    I just heard on the radio Jay is doing a college tour I guess he will be coming to an HBCU near you during homecoming or something. Bless his heart

    @Coa Who is your cousin on so you think you can dance?

    I knew yall were going to drag Jay in this post lol

    methinks CamelFace is Sandra's hetero crush.

  • masonmom

    when did 300k in the first week become a flop? **breaking news** dmn hijackers got aeromexican flight on lock wit 100 people on board. that couldve been me comin from cancun!

  • masonmom

    stay tuned, some passengers being allowed to leave! must be the black folks on vacay threatning to whoop they azz! hijackin wit no weapons talkin bout they got a bomb on the plane!

    First Jay Z was only getting in O Magazine when he will appear on the show 9/24, now this!!

    Jay Z moving 300K will be great. It shows he doesn't have to be on everyone track to still move units :) !!!

    @shauny I haven't bought a CD in years...true story

  • aqtpie

    I do believe my days of buying cd's are over but congrats on selling anything these days!!!!

  • starr

    I'm no jay fan by any means...but the album is hot. I'll give credit where credit is due. Probably one of the best i've heard in a minute

  • coaretained

    I'm with you aqtpie...until they start selling CD's the prices that match the bootleggers.. I'm good.. I'm too cheap fa that!

  • starr

    OH i didn't buy the cd either....lol But i didn't steal it either.....i don't get the whole leaking thing...i woudln't know whereto get a leaked album

  • mizzdallas

    I got jay-z bootleg cd for $2

  • Black Bauer

    Being that there are plenty of people who still think the cd will be released on Friday, 300K is pretty good. With the deal he has from Live Nation, Im sure he doesnt have to sweat numbers like the average artist anyway. He got his paper regardless. I heard him interviewed yesterday and he said "People keep saying Im old because that cant attack me on anything else, money, lifestyle, accomplishments, lyrics. What else can they talk about"....

  • Krysi J

    It shows he doesn’t have to be on everyone track to still move units !!!
    ----------------------------------------------------

    apparently not enough units.

    there is nothing wrong with self promotion, trust me the record label sure az hell won't complain...and the artist won't complain about there next advance either.

  • Daisy

    *Writing down Coas cousins name so I dont ever say anything bad about him* :wink:

    I went to Mexico on a missions trip and this man pulled a gun on us from his front porch while ranting about americans trying to take over his country and all we wanted to do was invite him to the block party we were having lol We were just stuck in the middle of the street nowhere to hide while he pointed his gun at us I thought I was going to come back home in a body bag.

    going off hits daily double which is never accurate but anyway it will be his 11th straight number 1 album which no other single artist can lay claim 2. and no one that comments listened to the album. like fab say even at 40 if he do it better than 95% of people younger than him then why not make albums. noone complains about how old rock acts are they just keep making good music

  • Daisy

    I just like old skool classic Jay not feeling his new stuff and haven't the last 2-3 cds :shrugs: I will still JAM to the songs I like from back in the day and I do like run this town although most didn't the beat and the hook made the song IMO.

    Well I guess that settles it Lil Wayne is the BEST rapper alive....since he sold 1 milli and Jay z...will sell SO much less. He said it himself...."Numbers don't lie"....I wonder how cocky dat MF feeling right now?

  • Krysi J

    so yea he’s a camel, he’s old but he aint broke!
    ---------------------------------------------------

    he's not being greedy, he's being a CRAB, theres a difference....and thats exactly why I hope every rapper who has sold more albums in the recession laughs in his FACE Kanye included!

  • iscream

    Where is Muncho? She has been MIA as of late. Girl you know you suppose to be in here :cheer: :cheer: for Jay.

    krysi if you listened to the bp3 maybe you would understand more but since you didnt ill quote you a lyric from star is born "wayne is scorchin i'll applaud him if he keep it goin ill pass the torch to him" sure wayne sold a mil in a week but wayne career sales are nowhere near the over 40 million in albums jay has sold so when u speak of numbers thats the numbers u speak of not the numbers u sold one week its the numbers u sold in your career. and even with him having a million in a week that album sold 3 million total still not high as jay highest album with hard knock life and he sold 5 million.

  • Krysi J

    “wayne is scorchin i’ll applaud him if he keep it goin ill pass the torch to him”
    ------------------------------------------------

    see thats some crab shyt, why not give somebody their credits due, the same shyt he demands so much RESPECT for..."if he keep it goin, you'll pass the torch to him"...who da hell dat niccah think he is man...SMH...whatever EAST! Im bout tired of tom bout dis shyt I've been on this SEA TURTLE since lunchtime. His time is over, YOU and the rest of his fans need to let him know that. NObody knocks him for what he did, but he ain no fukking god...so nobody is going to stop making money cuz he wanna sell some fukking cds and keep up with Beyonce. Both of em selfish and they deserve each other. Dis shyt ain about him selling 40 mill in his career, this is about his fukking ego getting scared up by new talent!! It just makes people like him LESS. I wouldn't listen to dat album if Jay Z himself shipped me 4 cases of da MF and some free champagne. Id rather watch him sit on the BENCH or COACH the team....he is not a 1st string starter anymore...PT is over.

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    because he is what most people consider the best even wayne himself considers jay the best so that line results to what you call a compliment. and why give up doing something you love doing just because you are older? he aint doing it for money he doing it because he love to do it. he bought his album from def jam so he can own it and put it out how he wanted to put it out. you cant even name 3 albums that came out this year in rap thats better than bp3 and thats saying a lot. like he said thats all u can attack is his age cause everything else speaks for itself

  • Shauny

    Team Jay on this one. Anyone who's did what he's did since what 96 and can still pull 300k in the first week gets no salt from me.

    Damn Krysi...lol When I read your chit it sounds personal, like Jay was like "fuck dat bish Krysi that be on SR talking out the side of her azz" or something...hilarious

    Even though I'm not checking for Jay (or any rapper for that matter) anymore Jay is still 1 of the top, if not the top rapper on most people's list. The only thing I have a issue with is Jay being called old. Damn, now you're old in your 30s? I'm an old bish then.

  • masonmom

    i feel u east, i swear i do! i also understand where krysi comin from too. 3 rap albums that came out this year..hmm soldier boy WACK..bow wow WACK..fabo he's an A to the B to the C rapper to me! i definitely give jay his props. not many rappers even own their own catalogue. i can only think of jay n ll cool j. i know people waitin on drake overrated azz!

  • Krysi J

    Don't nobody wanna hear what da fukk he gotta say....I say that says ALOT!!! You damn right it ain about money, I know that cuz he already knew he wouldn't make any on dat shyt, but it ain about shyts and giggles either! Why else would he write DOA or RUN THIS TOWN for, he still think he better than everybody, when he's on the same level....he sold more records, WELL OF FUKKING COURSE HE DID, BIGGIE AND PAC died he had the whole damn LANE....so what....Wayne can hold his own, Kanye can hold his own, TI can hold hiz own, Jeezy can hold his own, hell even Drake can hold hiz own...there are so many rappers who can RAP just as good or BETTER than J....some sell records (if they go commercial) and some don't! Jay Z doesn't appeal to his market anymore, this is why he's not going to sell the NUMBERS he didn't LIE about in the past. He thinks everyone is attacking his age, because he thinks he's the BEST....well its his right to do so, but IF WE THE PEOPLE don't fukking buy his shyt, then where the hell is he getting that information from.....RIGHT!....HIS EGO! WE can't help that we don't fukk wit Jay like that anymore....the same will happen to Wayne and the rest of them one day, when you're done, you're done...don't go out like a bytch...and CRAB on everybody!

    u should just speak for yourself saying nobody is an understatement. within minutes of leaking his album was everyyyyyyyywhere on the net. thats a testament of people wanting to hear what he gotta say and if you on twitter or anything like that you would have heard everybody talking about him and he been a trending topic for the last couple days because people wanna hear what he gotta say. u keep talking about numbers but nobody sales what they used to sale becuase people dont buy music like they used to buy. eminem sold over 2 million in a week before and his last cd selling 600 thousand. is that to say his music is not as good as it was before? no its just the public as a whole doesnt buy like they used to. the stars aligned for wayne last album it was anticipated but he will not do a million again. shit right now the number 1 selling album of all of 2009 is michael jackson album number ones and he had to die to get the numbers he did. so to be on your 11th number 1 album in a day and age where people dont buy music is big. and with 300 thousand buying it its probably 3 million people who downloaded it cause they wanna hear

    like east said they all got a big ego (too much they walk like this cuz they can back it up-i couldnt resist) kanye came out swinging like he was the shyt as a new artist so he definitely had ballz.

    Eminem will sell what he sell NO MATTER WHAT because he's the rap version of Elvis. Wayne had two FIRE singles with Lollipop and A Milli and Kanye is just Kanye so he's going to pull numbers. Outside of those 3 and folks wanting Paper Trail because Tip was going to jail, tell me who else in rap can barely pull 300k in their first week?

    I don't run with the masses, bandwagon chit, or sideline cheer. I speak my mind if I have something to say and if I'm one of 4 or one of 100..it is what it is....my opinion.

    Last time I check Rick Ross sold about 150k and Nas about 180k of their last CDs. We aren't talking total sales but first week sales right. dueces

  • http://myspace.com/eastpointvet eastpointvet

    nas last album sold less than 200 thousand, rick ross sold less than 200 thousand. 50 album been pushed back because they fear he wont sale and he will never do the numbers he did nobody do numbers its an accomplishment to even go platinum these days when 10 years ago almost every rep album went plat that was decent now there is even talks to lower the platinum certification from a million units. fact remains as of right now you cant name 5 people in the game right now better than him and unti you can do that whats wrong with him making music u said it yourself he aint gonna stop the young guys and he not trying to if you listened to the music instead of commenting on it you probably end up liking it. shit i dont like soulja boy but if imma call him wack imma listen to his album first before i say its wack. but if i find myself singing turn my swag on can i really ride on him? kinda the same way you sing rihanna part on run this town lol

  • aqtpie

    Just off BitTorrent alone, in the last few days Jay's album has leaked over 400,000 copies. I could be wrong but IMO unless record labels are buying copies of their artists, I think the days of rappers being able to sell a milli in the 1st week are gone!!

    Some artists are slept on, have their music illegally downloaded, have little to no promotion etc... Some are overrated and sell a helluva lot and the album is shytty, so they just need to do away with album sales = how great an artist is!!!! Imma have to say numbers *sometimes* DO lie!!! =)

  • Shauny

    east I HATED Superman but I LOVE Turn My Swag On...lol Jump up out the bed....turn my swag on....take a look in the mirror say what's up...yeah....I'm getting money.....ahhh LOVE IT! He made a hit talking about NATHIN. Gotta respect that young dudes hustle.

    I don't care how many records nasir olu dara jones did or didn't sell he is a BETTER lyricist than Jay will ever be and elove I'm glad u know Jay was a swagger jacker before we had that phrase now like I said Jay had some hits back n the day to me now not so much overall IMO

    Kanye is real about his ego n TI is the king of the south n his swagger is sick with it Jay does nothin for me swagger wise and shauny I believe jay is in his 40s n that's old for a rapper IMO

  • Shauny

    Daisy last time I checked Jay was born in 69. He's still in his 30s at the moment.

    Cube, Dre (who's what 45), LL, KRS One, all need to never rap again right? Nas is older than me and Eminem is 3 years younger than Jay so they should be packing it in within the next couple of years too right?

    Why leave it to the rappers in their teens to mid 30s even if you're still pushing units and debuting at #1, something some rappers still can't do?

    If I can still pull 300k in my first week of sales after 3 years I CAN BE 50 and I wouldn't stop going.

    That whole swagger jacking chit isn't what I was talking about, I was only defending Jay on his sales and viable rapper in the game today so I'll save the swagger and who's better debate to someone else.

  • starr

    I concur with shauny.

    If he still has it, and can do it why should be stop. I dont care for jay, but i think that if you love what ya doing, and your still good at it...why quit. That goes for anything.

    @ Daisy

    the song with a. keys is one of my favs songs...lol I love the music, the lyrics.....everything
    I didn't expect much from the album...if i ain't get it for free, i prob wouldn't of listened to it...lol I"m surprised i like it this much....honestly lol

    but my question is why he gotta CRAB about it....I mean really is there an explanation for DOA besides HATE??? Niccahs making money off autotune, MF topping charts and all, singing bout lollipops and shyt with AUTOTUNE...808 & Heartbreaks....come on.......what u hating for?? Everybody know dem niccahs can flow on and off autotune so if they want to experiment with NEW SHYT let em'. You can't CRAB cuz you don't want to RETIRE..??!

    Ice if you get it and co sign on it I may pick it up cause his 1st cd is a CLASSIC!

    Oh and let me go on record as saying cd sales DO NOT impress me if I like your music I like your music I dont care if I am the only person BUMPIN the cd

    Starr JAMMING to the hook of NY state of mind AKEYS KILLS IT!!! I you tubed it lol the beat is nice as well

  • Shauny

    O.K Krysi - we agree on comment 88 because I loved the track of Autotunes but didn't care for the song and like I've said before, besides American Gangster, he doesn't do it for me anymore. I like broke hustling with Dame and Bigg Jay and not the St Tropez, Hubby, Gwen and Chris Martin hanging Jay.

    Now I will cyber cut you Krysi if you say something about Biggie again..lol

    Daisy know you weren't talking about me with the swagger jacking which is why I said I'd leave it to the others. I could care less.

    Isc - I hope my hubby gets Raekwon because that's the only way I will hear him or Jays CD. I will only purchase Trey. Didn't get it last week but everyone who has it says it's nice

  • iscream

    I couldn't make it to Best Buy today (first day of school) I will try & get it 2morrow while its still on sale.

    & for the record I think people still buy CD's... if they like it. Plus isn't downloading apart of the numbers they post? Shoot 300K represents somebody.

    :cheer: for MJ being the biggest selling artist of 09!!!!

  • starr

    but my question is why he gotta CRAB about it….I mean really is there an explanation for DOA besides HATE??? Niccahs making money off autotune, MF topping charts and all, singing bout lollipops and shyt with AUTOTUNE…808 & Heartbreaks….come on…….what u hating for?? Everybody know dem niccahs can flow on and off autotune so if they want to experiment with NEW SHYT let em’. You can’t CRAB cuz you don’t want to RETIRE..??!

    I soo agree. I don't get into that. If i like what i'm hearing from you....you'll get my support. Numbers are for the record labels....i could care less

    its funny how most of the people who dont like jay z aint even hip hop heads...havent even listened to the record....they just spewing hate bc they dont like jay.

    Im not old, Im 24 yrs old. I was about 12 when reasonable doubt came out and he's still my number 1!

    if nobody cares, then why is he the only rapper that can sell out arenas around the world in a matter of seconds? with just his name, no supporting acts....listen to his song Hate! I guess it really takes alot for a hater to actually admit that Jay is the best! as long the rest of the world knows, it doesnt really matter what the haters have to say!

  • Krysi J

    Yeah I guess the rest of the world is 300 thousand people.....at the most 800 thousand by 2010.....Where does that leave everybody whose latest albums sold more than that? Just a question

    I've been listening to hip hop long enough to know enough....if a hip hop has to be schooled on that new york shyt to be considered an official lover of rap then consider me an official lover of SOUTHERN hip hop. If it ain Biggie or Nas I don't care for it. Anything else I can stand midwest and west coast. Thats just me, no hate necessary shyt it iz what it iz....I don't like it. I don't like Jay Z cuz he's an arrogant, fony, crab azz MF. I wouldn't like a MF like that if he lived across the street from me, so kill dat shyt......He's no longer the only rapper dropping solid albums that sell BOTTOM LINE, his reign is over....shyt it was fun while it lasted right.....but even yall ain bumping no fukking Jay z CD like that anymore....ADMIT THAT!! Stop acting like groupies, you know you ain az big of a fan as u used to be......and its probably because he DOESN'T experiment anymore.....wasn't nobody hating when dat bytch did a fukking ROCKING ROLL album wit dat fukking rock band....he went commercial why wouldn't he sell 40 mill, but Jay Z is simply NOT that dude anymore wheather yall MF like it or not 300k or less ain Jay Z's best....so why should "I" consider him that???? ................don't worry I'll wait..........???

    To further @Krysi's CRABS-NESS comment ...

    The PROBLEM is Jigga-BOO isn't making records for the LOVE OF IT and he STILL ain't righteous (OR TRYING TO BE) in regards to making music he SUPPOSEDLY loves to do. If you have a true legacy then it speaks for itself THEREFORE there is no need for direct competition amongst those that HAVEN'T and NEVER WILL have a long-lasting LEGACY

    Remember when The O'Jays & The Temptation & The Isley Brothers were STILL MAKING outstanding albums and very enjoyable & CURRENT type music ALONG with the New Editions, Boyz II Men, Jodeci ETC, ETC and they were able to sell and NOT DISRUPT the current crop of up-n-coming artists SHINE WHATSOEVER ???

    THAT'S WHAT-n-HOW ARTISTS WITH TRUE TALENT & LEGENDARY STATUS ARE SUPPOSE TO ACT... JIGGA-BOO IT ISN'T YOU ...

    elove you cant in no way compare rap to rnb. rap is competitive by nature from the roots there was battling to see who was the best from the start. anybody who does music at a high level thinks they the best point blank. certain people have a track record and accolades to back up what they say and jay is one of them. u referencing DOA as hating but its more a call to action. its not that doing autotune is bad its everybody and they mama doing autotune is bad. thats like anything when its mainstream its time to move on in hiphop. when white folks started using bling bling in commercials for hamburgers and shit it was time to move on. same with auto tune its being used in burger commercials its time to move on. if you have no talent and u use autotune as your crutch you watering down the culture. tpain has talent he will be straight with or without autotune because dude is just that talented same with wayne same with kanye its just when something is overused in hiphop its usually killed and this is no different. like next month the term swag should be on its way out so im hoping to hear a DOS.

  • Daisy

    East can we get a death of HATE 1st lol

    Hermosa I don't think its fair to say if somebody doesnt like Jay they arent a hip hop head or something to that effect lol The songs that I heard last week that were leaked were not hawt to me and I will listen to the cd but I wont be buying it but I dont buy rap like that anyway. I am not pressed to hear new music from Jay per say it is what it is. You can JAM to your hearts content though!

    Krysi I said it loud and proud yesterday and will say it again today I LOVED OLD SKOOL JAY much better than new skool Jay lol If and when he has song I like I still JAM to it such as run this town and NY state of mind feat my girl Akeys!

    I still cant put my finger on when and why I started turning the corner on Jay cause I did use to LOVE his music back in the day lol

  • ELove

    @east
    THIS Whole "battling" and "competitive" to describe Hip-Hop's nature & origins is such a CRUTCH & Crock-of-SH%&% that it makes my ears bleed every time I hear people spew it to justify these LAME-AZZ Antics that these false prophets to the throne of Universal Appeal-n-Legacy

    Jiggles doesn't have ONE OUNCE of Originality-OR-Creativity

    He's the Will Smith of Hip-Hop (The Box-Office STUD that is)

    And HIS accolades are So Minimum compared to the True Heavy-Hitters that collect them on the regular when they drop a CD and R&B artist are NO LESS Competitive than the Hip-Hop artist but they are FAR MORE Perceptive-n-Respectful of their heritage-n-craft than any of these Lame-AZZ Phony-AZZ Hip-Hop artists that continue to flex THEIR "I'm The Greatest in My Mind" credentials

    AGAIN, That's just my opinion

  • Krysi J

    And I agree Elove

    "its time to move on in hiphop."
    ------------------------------------

    It has moved on to AUTOTUNE, and when we get tired of buying the shyt ....hip hop will move on....but we the people are the decision makers....WE decide whats hot and whats NOT ....not ah fukking jay z! That is unless he wants to buy his own records. Dropping shyt like DOA only makes people like him less....the first thing came to my mind is "who the fukk he think he is??" Im sure I was not alone. Every rapper who has used autotune knows what it was...even Kanye, either you man up and let that niccah know or ya don't, or ya just keep getting money on his azz cuz you know it ain no competition anymore. Coming out the gate with 300k sold the first week is taking away from what he accomplished...Now any new or old artist doing their thing in the game will have the opportunity to sell more than that and clown hiz azz for not having that big of a fan base anymore...He's only hurting himself forcing us to listen to that shyt. AFTER all that fukking promotion all those commercials and shyt dude still only sold 300k.....Wayne or Kanye can probably sell that much on their dycks??!! It iz what it iz, and one day (hopefully before he killz his entire career for CRABNESS) he will see it for himself. He could have remained the best when he retired a long time ago....now he may not go out that way.
