No idea on the singles but album -

Shifted around 14,000 album equivalent units, of which 8,000 were pure album sales.

Debuted at 62 on the Billboard 200 charts, 2nd week the album was out of the BB charts.

US Billboard 200 - 62
US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums (Billboard) - 27
Canada Top Albums/CDs (RPM) - 39
Australian Albums (A.R.I.A) - 56
Belgian Albums (Ultratop Flanders) - 127
Dutch Albums (Mega Charts) - 85
Swiss Albums (Hitparade) - 63

Fuck charts! It's no matters.Album is Good.


it matters because we probably wonít ever get another cube album again

heís too successful in hollywood to put out albums that donít chart after 2 weeks

He only has himself to blame for that. It's almost like the project was cursed from the jump. He shouldn't of even dropped the name of the project if he wasn't going to release it soon after.


I SEE WHY DRE NEVER DROPPED DETOX

THIS SHIT WAS ACTUALLY SURPRISINGLY BANGIN

FROM ALL THEM POP CUTS WIT LMFAO, 2CHAINZ, ETC. / WEIRD BUBBLE GUM JOINTS HE WAS DOIN TO TRY N GET A HIT, I WAS EXPECTING IT TO BE AT LEAST 50% FILLER.....

BUT HE GAVE US SOME REAL ICE CUBE SHIT AND IT FLOPPED.......THATS BAD NEWS. I FEEL LIKE THIS WILL BE THE LAST ALBUM HE DROPS WIT REAL EFFORT.

IT WASNT BAD AT ALL...IT WAS REALLY GOOD, ACTUALLY

BUT THE LACK OF SALES WILL DEFINITELY DISCOURAGE HIM FROM DOIN MORE MUSIC. IM PRETTY SURE EVEN "I AM THE WEST" SOLD BETTER.

I DONT GET HOW A BIG NAME LIKE ICE CUBE CANT GENERATE ANY SORTA BUZZ WIT A NEW STUDIO ALBUM. WE TALKIN BOUT A RAPPER WHO'S IN MANY PEOPLE'S TOP 5 ALL TIME. WEAKSAUCE.

I agree this is probably his last album but I don't think he's been deterred by poor sales. Rapping is his most notorious medium - he releases a project here and there for the fans and to remind everyone of his roots. New generations were introduced to him as an actor and probably haven't checked his catalogue, nor can they relate. His target market has grown up and very little of our disposable income is spent on music. Artists don't make money on album sales anymore, it's just the way of the business (Apple Music, downloading etc). The more shows he does, the more sales spikes he will get but ultimately if you're trying to generate revenue these days, then shows and appearances are everything. The album allows you to tour, not much more...

Overall, I think the album is good, there are a lot of cool songs. Chase Down the Bully bangs hardddd

I MEAN METALLICA RELEASED AN ALBUM 2 YEARS AGO AND WENT PLAT OFF THEIR NAME ALONE

ITS ONLY IN HIP-HOP WHERE THE LEGENDS GET NO RESPECT

I WONDER IF 2PAC WAS ALIVE AND MAKING MUSIC, WOULD HE PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND ONLY SELL 8,000 COPIES THE FIRST WEEK? SOUNDS CRAZY, BUT IF CUBE DID, ITS DEFINITELY POSSIBLE.

Do it. Well worth the money. I picked up the CD. Was hoping for vinyl but I donít believe any copies were pressed. And definitely agree...the more you listen to this the better it gets. I donít skip ANY songs. Even Bad Dope has grown on me 8)

Well
As much as I carried on like a delusional nincompoop over Everythang's Corrupt I haven't actually listened to it.
I've heard the title track, New Funkadelic, Arrest The President and the spoken word version of Fire Water but it really didn't get much play on social media and I couldn't be bothered listening for a whole hour despite my deranged obsession with the album for the last 6 years. I liked the spoken word in terms of it being spoken word but hearing Cube refer to himself as a cannibal really didn't do it for me.


thats because u donít really care for the music as much as u care for cubes nuts in yo mouf :banana_dsf:

I'm nuts enough as it is
Don't need Cubes

happy new year

Finally gave this shit a listen coz I needed something to distract me from the monotony of exercise so I'm actually surprised I don't hate it as much as I thought I would.
Love the hook on Streets Shed Tears. I got like 4 songs left to listen to so I'll reserve judgement but I gotta say I had a real confused look on my face when he rhymed "funny" with "the Easter bunny"
"What the fuck?" was my initial reaction to alot of his attempts at punch lines.
Cube said himself there's more money in film than music and he's been on the big screen ALOT lately so it's safe to say he not missing no meals despite poor record sales.
I'm just glad I didn't hear any direct threats towards me which drove my obsession with him and this album these last year's. And yes. I know how stupid that sounds. Just as stupid as Cube rhyming bout Isaac Newton. He should of said something bout Huey Newton.
As late as I am to the table I like this album alot more than IATW and I wanna thank Cube for that rhetoric bout bitches with fake this and that like he ain't into it coz I compare myself to women who have had plastic surgery and feel inadequate even though I've basically written off any future dalliances with the opposite sex.

So, happy new year Sccit.

I agree, rappers are the low end of the totem pole. They suffer the most, primarily because of their content I believe.
