You can’t be the “Illest Motherf**ker Alive” without defending your title against a worthy challenger! Yes, we know Jay-Z has more money than Lil Wayne. And if numbers don’t lie, we also know Birdman’s money is “baby money” compared to Jay-Z’s bank account. But, what about a future face-off for the number one spot on Billboard 200? Who would land at the #1 spot if Jay-Z drops his upcoming untitled album (we’re gonna call it The Blueprint 4) against Lil Wayne’s next upcoming album (we know Lil Wayne prize stable albums are titled ‘Tha Carter’… so let’s go with ‘Tha Carter V’ — and, we don’t blame him… if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it)! What would be the outcome if this challenge occurred?
On his last two albums (The Blueprint 3 and Watch The Throne), Jay-Z boasted about having
11 consecutive (oops!) 12 consecutive number one albums!
I just got 10 #1 albums, maybe now 11
More hits than a “Now 11” – Jay-Z (Thank You off The Blueprint 3)
11 in a row, Bill Russell rings
Michael Jordan swag, yall think Michael Jordan bad
Nigga I got 5 more rings than Michael Jordan had
Elvis has left the building now I’m on the Beatles ass – Jay-Z (Illest Motherf**ker Alive off Watch The Throne)
One accomplishment Lil Wayne has over Jay-Z is being inside the “Elite Platinum Club” — Albums That Sold 1 Million Copies in One Week! Jay-Z will probably never gain access into this prestigious million-plus copies sold in 1 week club. ‘Kingdom Come‘ is Jay-Z’s highest selling album, with 680,000 copies sold in its first week of release. And, we all know Lil Wayne smashed that easily, when ‘Tha Carter III‘ debuted at #1 in 2008 with 1,006,000 albums sold in its first week of release!
The competitive mind and ego of Jay-Z gotta be feeling a way knowing Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV is about to move Watch The Throne from its number 1 position on Billboard 200! Not only is Lil Wayne about to take over “The Throne’s” chair — Lil Tunechi’s Tha Carter IV is gonna smash Watch The Throne‘s cumulative TWO week number of 613,000 (436,000 1st week, 177,000 2nd week)!
Hell… ‘Tha Carter IV’ may actually top Kanye and Jay-Z’s combined THREE WEEK effort! Because, Birdman tweeted, “C4. BMJR. # Don’t Lie 1m. 1week They Know.” If you don’t understand the slang… that’s “Tha Carter IV, Birdman Jr., Numbers Don’t Lie (a saying Jay-Z started), 1 million in 1 week… they know!”
We reported, Lil Wayne was on pace to move 700,000, but Billboard just up’d that number — suggesting the album may shift over 850,000-900,000 by week’s end on Sept. 4 (Beyonce’s Birthday)!! Lil Wayne wasn’t joking when he rapped to Jay-Z, “I’ll take you out, that’s a date nigga” on It’s Good off his latest album, Tha Carter IV!
Right now, Jay-Z is Floyd Mayweather of the rap game… and Lil Wayne is Manny Pacquiao! Jay-Z needs to place that 12 consecutive number one albums title up against a worthy contender like Lil Wayne! Put all the chips on the table! We don’t need another subliminal diss song like “Why I Love You” from either of you! Lil Wayne and Jay-Z should release their next projects on the same date — Blueprint 4 vs Tha Carter V!
