History In The Making: Jay-Z & Kanye West’s ‘Watch the Throne’ Breaks U.S. iTunes Record

The Throne (Jay-Z & Kanye West) made history last week. Their highly anticipated collaborative LP Watch The Throne broke the U.S. iTunes Store’s one-week sales record last week when it sold 288,000 downloads through Sunday night (Aug. 14). The album is now available at select retailers.

According to Billboard, “Watch the Throne” surpasses the previous one-week iTunes record, set when Coldplay‘s 2008 album “Viva La Vida Or Death and All His Friends” shifted 282,000 in its first week. (The album sold 288,000 total downloads in its first week, including sales from all other retailers.)

“Watch the Throne’s” overall official first-week sales — digital and physical combined — will be released by Nielsen SoundScan on Wednesday morning. Currently, it’s looking to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with around the 410,000-450,000. That’s a downgrade from the 500,000-start that some industry pundits had predicted.

Marc Jacob is an upscale fashion brand by American fashion designer Marc Jacob. In the late 80’s the brand was launched and became one of the most popular upscale brands worldwide.

This past February 27, Young Money Cash Money Billionaire (YMCMB) rappers Lil Wayne and Mack Maine were in the building at the Miami Vs. Knicks game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida.

There’s No Beef: Gucci Mane & Young Jeezy Squashed Beef, But Gooch Can’t See Himself Recording With Jeezy Again

In a recent sit down interview with MTV’s “RapFix Live” , Gucci Mane revealed that he and Young Jeezy squashed their beef again. Below are some excerpts:

On squashing beef with Young Jeezy.

On the strength of [the fact that] anything could have happened between not just me and him [but] between our camps, we just came to a sit-down of just respecting the fact that somebody can get hurt, and it ain’t going to be us,” Gucci said. “That’s what made us do that.”

On recording with Young Jeezy again.

I don’t think so. We started the conversation, but I can’t see it happening.”

Gooch and Waka collaborative LP, titled Ferrari Boyz  is now in stores and online. Jeezy’s Thug Motivation 103 is scheduled to hit shelves September 20.
