Shots Fired! Music Mogul 50 Cent Says Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” Sales Are “Suspect”

Russell Simmons’ site Global Grind recently chatted with 50 Cent for a brief conversation. During the convo, Lil Wayne’s name was mentioned and 50 questioned his latest album Tha Carter IV  first week sales. The disc almost sold a million albums in the first week. Some people including 50 Cent doesn’t believe Weezy’s 1st week sales:

To be honest with you, the Lil Wayne sales are a little suspect to me. Because it was trending 600,000 pieces that week. And they didn’t do a million copies, it was like 900,000.”

As far as  Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, which sold a million copies in the first week back in 2008, 50 gives Lil Wayne credit:

Tha Carter III was definitely hot. He did that.”

50 Cent then added:

Tha Carter III commanded that energy, but the last one that just came out, those numbers are funny.”
