Birdman Reacts To Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’ Almost Selling A Million Copies in One Week
With Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV pushing over 954K units in its first week, the haters came out of the woodwork to accuse Cash Money CEO Birdman of purchasing albums to boost Weezy’s sales numbers. But Wayne’s father-figure called into Sway’s morning show to straighten out the baby talk.
Birdman comments on Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter IV’ sales
“That really don’t make no sense. Why would we do that? 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 buying records. 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.” – Birdman
