Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter IV' Sells Almost A Million

If you’re a little confused about the real first week sales of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV, you’re not alone. There were varying reports that the rapper’s fourth installment in Tha Carter series sold over a million copies, however the disc actually only amassed sales over 965-thousand units. According to Billboard.com,
the LP took the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart and attracted over 362k in digital copies and over 603k in physical copies. Not bad for an artist who recently spent nearly a year in prison and has done limited televised performances to promote the album.
After news of Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV taking the number one spot on Billboard 200 chart, Cash Money CEOs Ronald “Slim” Williams and Bryan “Baby” Williams have released joint statements about Weezy’s on-going success. Slim stated, “This is a tremendous accomplishment for Lil Wayne and everyone here at Cash Money. It’s a tribute to the hard work and commitment he’s shown from the very start.” Meanwhile, Birdman added, “I consider him my son, part of the Cash Money family from the very start. One thing I've learned. No record is safe from him.” Wayne easily secured the top spot on the chart after he sold over 965-thousand copies of Tha Carter IV.
