Having already sieged the record briefly held by The Throne, Weezy has continued his reign with yet another magnificent milestone. Rumors circulating around the blogosphere are claiming that Wayne’s Carter IV has done the unthinkable.
Though 1 million in a week is not uncommon ground for the YMCMB general, for he eclipsed a milli in 2008 with Carter III, but considering the leak a week before the drop and the ever-increasing power of the digital age, this is pretty fucking impressive.
Lil Wayne joins himself, The Beatles, Eminem, and most recently Taylor Swift in an elite group of artists who have sold over 1 million copies in the first week. Check the figures after the jump!
Joining the anti-christ Lady Gaga, Wayne becomes the second ever artist to go platinum in the first week. The official tally ringed in at 1,000,690 copies sold. Pretty damn respectable. This plaque goes out to all the haters…..Cheers.
