The Numbers Game: Tyler, The Creator & Young Thug


If you’re reading this, we appreciate it. Hopefully the technical issues we’ve had for the last few days are over and you’re reading this post and commenting on how terrible a writer I am.

Tyler, The Creator dropped his album, Cherry Bomb, kinda surprisingly last week and it grabbed the #4 spot and sold around 58,000 units. While that’s on par with his last album Wolf, that album still sold around 30,000 more copies. To be honest, that’s not all Tyler fault as it’s just a sign of the music industry. Also, is anybody wondering why no other Odd Future members appear on the album?

Hopefully our review for Cherry Bomb comes out later this week. *fingers crossed* Review here,

After all the controversy, Young Thug finally releases Tha Carter 6 Barter 6. Even though it’s was up in the air on if this was a album or mixtape, it landed at #26 and sold around 18,000 copies. Hopefully the site issues didn’t stop you from reading our Barter 6 review, but if it did you can always go over and read it now.
