no, they dont
collectors buy "cds and vinyl" not "people"
digital outlets and streaming sites (like Spotify) and illegal mp3's are the public domain sources for new
music today, not compact discs (its different depending on which country tho)

WideAwake aims at collectors wit their product, n since the overall content n quality
of the product isnt up to par wit the networth, i dont see any revenue from
a business-standpoint wit their releases. thats how i look at it

2 or 3 new tracks in a lousy compact disc format wit a cheap paper-inlay isn't worth 20$,
not even for a collector, thats why it wont sell n become a huge success IMO

Your argument is a nonsense.

Cd sales aren't made up of 'collectors' only. Cd sales are still a major part of the industry.

Just because u don't buy CDs doesn't mean people aren't out buying CDs 24/7 or off Amazon etc. :D

its not nonsense at all
the revenue isnt in cd-sales, so  cd-sales are not a huge factor in the industry from a business standpoint, no

collectors and general fanbases buy cd's, not the conventional music-listener.
the compact disc isnt a source for new music today,, the internet is

Yeah you're wrong tho. No surprise.


Sales of musicin the US last year (for example)

Vinyl 1%
Legal download 26%
CD 73%

ive been thru that argument before..
comparing statistics of CD-sales and digital sales doesnt work at all

of course, Cd sales more in comparison wit digital sales, still doesnt prove anythin.. cuz most of teh music listeners download everythin for free
the percentage shows the small number of actual digital sales, and doesnt say antyhin about teh illegal downloads

those numbers make it look like cd-sales are a dominant force, when its not at all in reality

Lol so now you're talking bout illegal download vs all sales.

What's that got to do with it? It's like tryin to market designer goods to shoplifters.

illegal downloads go hand in hand wit the sales of compact discs. its a domino effect.

how can compact discs sell (& remain as an important factor as a source for music in the industry, like u said) when downloads are eatin off the profits?

are u retarded?

And I'm askin u again....

WTF has that to do with this new CD from Wideawake, specifically?



What you're talking about now is an industry wide issue. You want me to solve the problems of the industry?

You're not making sense Mike.

Not interested. I hope people from WideAwake are readin' DubCC and they understand that they're fuckin up.
I think that the album sales of their Death Row releases tell them that.

It's funny because we used to clown on Death Row before with how bad their album sales were, though they eclipse the WIDEawake releases by a good margin... and those releases at least had some new stuff (i.e. Dead Man Walkin, Too Gangsta for Radio, Snoop Doggy Dogg Greatest Hits) or a decent mix of released songs and unreleased songs.

Someone else said Doggystyle with G'z Up Hoez Down would be nice, but it's going to take more than one extra song to get sales, especially when the fanbase that actually knows that song probably already has it in some form and likely won't drop another $12 just to have it.  They'd need to put more bonuses on that... the original Next Episode would definitely get my $12, I'd be at Best Buy at 10am right when they open to buy that.

if wide awake somehow managedto re-release Doggystyle with the songs Doggystyle, Gs up hoes down and Next Episode on it i'd buy 5 copies just as a thanks for having Next Episode in CDQ lol


or even if they cant re-release the Dre vocals they can easily use those other 2 songs and maybe Smoke On or something

Re-release the entire back catalouge with a release each month with 1/2 previously unreleased bonus songs from that time period/recording sessions:

May 2012 - Doggystyle (with 1 bonus song)
June 2012 - Above The Rim (with 2 Bonus songs)
July 2012 - Murder was the case (with 2 bonus songs)
August 2012 - Dogg Food (with 1 bonus song)

so on, and so on, until they got up to Chronic 2000.. Take some of the money from these bankable, and proftiable albums that still sell today, and use it to 1) pay back investors, and 2) invest in the future, and put money into making any "New" future releases sound nice, and have better promotion and artist backing

This shitting out bootleg-quality material while the heads are turned away does nothing for the label


I always thought that this would be a logical strategy for them that would keep average hip-hop fans and death row die-hards interested in their products while maximizing profits by milking their back catalog. But I guess that would make too much sense so WA choose to go a different route ::)

To be fair, we the fans are the idiots getting hyped up about this knowing full well what WIDEawake's track record is like. We know who admins their site, we know who gets credits in the releases yet we still expect magic from a company that has been dead for a long, long time.

in the beggining i supported wideawake but this is a fucking joke...clearly they just dont give a fuck anymore. they're just trying to cash out the leftover material, trust me when i tell you that they are keeping the VERY BEST material to themselves..ill download this one ;)
