b I already warned you, you fucking fruit. I will pour grain alcohol on your head, set fire to the shit, and ceremonially burn you, you fucking nitwit. Then I’ll hand you a glass of what you think is water but really it’s more grain alcohol. I will singe your eyes out of your face you fuck-baby. Then I’ll molest your sister while you burn on some avant garde “make the last minutes of your life even more miserable” kind of shit, pussy.
You can’t tell me the labels possibly thought these albums would do much past Gold. Not in today’s climate.
Got to the point before me.
*Economist it up*
The case maybe that The Carter four and Take Care may not have turned a profit. You’d imagine the amount of money it takes to get an album to sell gold, Cash money could have spent more than they made from album sales. Which is possible because you could break even from touring, just consider the album promo and release as an advertisement campaign.
Consider that Curren$y and Krit probably didn’t a huge budget, or start up cost, the little albums they sold could have cover the cost and brought in a small profit.
