NEWS WORTHY: Lil’ Wayne Does It Again

It’s always uplifting to be a witness to continued success and to see one of our fellow young professionals excelling in their craft. We’ve been afforded a second opportunity to observe as Lil Wayne beats the odds of a declining economy and industry by selling a million albums in the first week with his recent release “Tha Carter IV” As I read reviews and comments regarding this new milestone, many raised the question, “why?”.  While this question continues to be raised, I would like to open up the floor for discussion.

  • Do you agree that this accomplishment was deserved?
  • How do you feel about the direction music is taking?
  • Last but not least, if you don’t like the direction, what are you, as the consumer, going to do to change it?

Selling a million records in the first week with two albums consecutively only leaves me with one thing to say. Congratulations! He must be doing something right.

  1. I agree with @Amadijae. I may not agree with everything Lil Wayne spits out, but he has a work ethic that some wish they could possess. He must be doing something right.
