Lil Wayne's latest solo album officially reaches two million sold on the charts, while Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West get another post-Grammy boost.

The aftermath of the Grammy Awards really took shape last week. As Adele's 21 sold nearly half a million extra albums than the previous week, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj and Wiz Khalifa all enjoyed spikes in sales. The biggest story however, may have been Lil Wayne's recent solo album, Tha Carter IV, crossing the two million mark.

Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV Reaches Double Platinum In Next Week

Although officially "double platinum" for some time, thanks to global sales and non-Soundscan sales, Lil Wayne officially met the two million milestone with his latest solo effort. 2011's Tha Carter IV features the likes of Nas, Tech N9ne and Andre 3000. Weezy's previous Carter album, 2008's Tha Carter III reached three million units sold on the charts.

Albums From Curren$y, Ski Beatz Miss The Charts

While 2012's Live From The Kitchen by Yo Gotti sustained its chart placement for a sixth week, no new 2012 releases were added to the charts. Last week, Damon Dash's DD172 released two albums, Curren$y & Sean O'Connell's Muscle Car Chronicles and Ski Beatz' 24 Hour Karate School Presents: Twilight. Both efforts missed the Top 200 mark, with independent distribution. The first 2012 Rap addition since K'Naan's More Beautiful Than Silence is expected to happen next week with Tyga's Careless World: Rise of The Last King album.

Seems like Mac Miller is backed heavy by hipster kids.


But Curren$y's and Ski's albums sold less than 2.900 copies?

LMAO... what? Eminem never had to wear jeggings, pick up a skateboard, wear Eskimo boots, kiss n*ggas in their mouth, or fake being a blood to get his fanbase or sales. Two different type of fans...

I know u said "esque" but Eminem has multiple "Diamond" records... Wayne didn't even hit 4 million (4x Platinum) on a record yet...

Adele sold 730,000 albums in her 52nd week of being out. WTF! and her debut album that was released years ago is at number 4 on the charts :S

Did anyone notice kanye's MBDTF sales in comparison to nicki's sales? Remember there first weeks when kayne sold around 100K more and they said nicki lost (based on her having huge buzz at that point)?. Also, Drake done passed MBDTF and take care been out for 3 months. Does That mean that drake, nicki and wayne aern't in some dark twisted fantasy watching the throne?

LiL Wayne never had to wear panty-hose and a dress, moon his fans, wear a womans wig, get tea-bagged in the mouth, or fake being a serial-killer to get his fan base.

Two different types of fans...


Yeah Emenim has a "Diamond Record" and so do Vanilla Ice & MC. Hammer.
