D Block are one of da most talented groups but how come they can't push units?

23 posts in this topic

All these other Gangsta Rap/Street Rap groups pushed units and had a huge white fan base to cop their CD'sG Unit NWAD12DipsetD Block are definitley the voice of the roads people from endz bang out D Block all day but how come like other Platinum selling groups D Block don't push units and have a huge white fan base to support them? Don't say they don't make commercial Singles cos they do they even get Mariah Carey and them Pop singers on their Singlesand don't say they ain't got a major label behind em cos they were on Interscope

COZ THEY TOO REAL.SNM.
Real in what sense? if you mean real as in they put in work on roads well Eazy E hustled drugs to start his record label and was a Crip and we all know how big NWA were as far as fan base, 50 Cent was doing his thing in the streets too in a major way and we know about G Units success as far as sales, D12 put in work in the street and obviously they went Multi Platinum But content wise all those groups are pretty much Gangsta Rap and they all make commercial Singles aside from NWA really

Richest Rappers of 2009Ever wonder who is the richest rapper? Forbes recently released this year's Hip-Hop Cash Kings, which lists the rap superstars who made the most money this past year. Many of these rappers became the richest by collaborating with other artists and delving into the world of fashion. The earnings estimates consist of pre-tax income between June 2008 and June 2009.1) Jay-Z: $35 million2) Diddy: $30 million3) Kanye West: $25 million4) Akon: $20 million5) 50 Cent: $20 million6) Lil Wayne: $18 million7) Timbaland: $17 million8) Pharrell Williams: $16 million9) T-Pain: $15 million10) Eminem: $14 millionhttp://www.aolradioblog.com/2009/07/20/richest-rappers-of-2009/

MPRis a 4/5 star album imosuch a shame, the way they started it, mimicking Bronx tale, was hard, set the tone 4 a classic albumthey shud have followed that theme and sampled more scenes from that film, this wud have made the album 2much imokinda like skinnyman did on "Council Estate of Mind" wit "Made in Britain"

G Unit D12Dipset
All of those groups had a star, who made it big first and then bought through their click. So the fanbase bought into 1 artist and then took the recommendation to listen to his group.D-Block never had that star.
