The internet has pretty much killed album sales for most artists. That being said I am still surprised at the low projections for Snoop, I thought he would do closer to 200k. The artists who appeal to a broad fan base including older people who don't downoad albums are the ones who are still selling like Alicia Keys, and also country artists fall into that same category. Hip Hop has suffered the most. Just going gold right now is a major achievement when ten years ago every rapper who would release an album would pretty much go gold with ease

but who's to blame, the fans or the labels?

not saying that fans have no influence regarding to the sales, but i think the fans, that want to support their favorite artists will buy their albums.

I think the hardcore fan will support but the "fairweather" fan who years ago might have bought the album because of liking a song or 2 they heard are gone, they can just download it. I remember in 1999 when Metallica was speaking against Napster every music fan was against them but from the artists point of view basically people were stealing from them and it turns out that they were right. Since then the internet has exploded and has affected everything from music sales to television ratings, its a very easy alternative

yes the internet has become an easy alternative, but it also provided new ways for promotion, distribution etc.

so the labels are responsible for not optimally using the internet's advantages; even my dear friend Jimmy Iovine said something along those lines (if i'm not mistaken) in a recent interview. so it's not just downloading that is the problem.

sure buying an album via itunes is cheaper than buying a cd, but it doesn't really offer anything special in compared to a free download.
as you know, you can't stop technology, they just have to work with it and adapt different formulas to succesfully replace the cd ( which will probably die in the near future anyway).


yes i noticed we switched the subject of the topic, but fuck it, it wasn't going anywhere anyway.

LOL at the double standards some of you cats throw out. It is funny how yall show this we need west coast unity bullshit when it only comes to your favorite rappers. How about Snoop album wasnt that great and fans get tired of medicore rap? What other west coast artist you guys support anyway that is not DPG related or The Game?

I have not heard the album but I support good music. East, West, wherever. But to name a few:

Dilated
Liks
Muggs
Cypress
Cube
Blu & Exile
Del
Sick Jacken
Kemo
Coup
Zion I

Just to name a few. I could be here all day with the support of artists I give out here.

Atleast you have an open ear some of these cats on here cheer for rappers and get mad like they cheering for a team. I have no favorite artists I like good music although I support the west coast to the fullest only if the same if dope tho.

in 5 years, selling 100,000 is gonna be a HUGE achievement just like 2day sellin 3 million is a huge success- 5 years ago that was considered a FLOP or average.

From hitsdailydouble.com:

YOUR WEAKEND TOP 10 PREVIEW: Three records on next week’s chart will be in six figures, and all are debuts (no surprise there). Def Jam/IDJ rapper Rick Ross has the inside track for #1 on a projected 175-180k, followed closely by Sony BMG’s Now 27 with 165-170k. Geffen’s Snoop Dogg is a lock for #3, trending toward 120-125k, after which it gets iffy. Jack Johnson (Brushfire/Universal Republic) and Alan Jackson (Arista Nashville) are both looking 50-55k-ish, followed by the 45-50k trio of debuting Fat Joe (Virgin), Michael Jackson’s Thriller (Sony/Legacy) and Sara Bareilles (Epic). The rest of the Top 10, projecting 35-40k, will likely consist of Janet Jackson (Def Jam/IDJ), Now: The ’80s (SBMG) and Erykah Badu (Universal Motown). (3/14a)

Ricky Ross's shit > snoop any day of the week that ol' talentless geezer should retire cuz he holdin down the west and the real talent.
please ,that is bullshit ,youngster . one snoop is not holding down the west . Snoop has kept the west coast alive for years . without snoop dogg & ice cube there be no west coast right know because it would has dead in 1999. Snoop dogg & ice cube kept west coast alive al lthose years when we had no other west coast artists out there. rick ross shit is wack comoared to snoop ,youngster .Snoop has twice the talent rick ross has. stop acting on grwn up ,youngster . you just made snoop grew up & you got feel it because you are ahting youngster who needs to grow up.snoop dogg is one of most talented west coast artists ever . you just have no udes waht good musci is because you are youngster & grew with trash for music. the best music was made in 1960,1970,1980, & early 1990's .after 1997 the music all sucked & was trash.

easy promotion, easy distribution only leads to EASY downloading of your favorite song or MP3 ..  nowadays record companys aint even giving out album deals anymore there aint no more money in selling records even DIDDY president of bad boy says he aint makin money off of music no more hes just doing it for the love of music now

Ross' wack. I liked Port Of Miami, cause the original sound. But what's on Trilla? Still screams ''boss, Ross'' and shit. I don't want to listen it. I just make a decision after hearing singles. Wack wack wack.

I hope Snoop outsells Ross after this week.
It's funky enough!
