The Numbers Game: Crisis

Even though I do a column every week that talks about album sales, I’ll be the first to admit that sales don’t equal good music. I also will be the first to point out that in terms of sales, most the music industry is in bad shape. But GLC not being able to sell over 300 copies of his debut album Love, Life & Loyalty is terrible. This is the same guy who was on Kanye’s “Drive Slow” & “Spaceship”. I understand he’s no longer with G.O.O.D. Music (He left to signed with EMI Records in 2006) but I thought that he’d a least get support from Chi-Town to a push a 1,000 units. I guess having Bun B, T-Pain, John Legend, & Kanye West on your album doesn’t even help anymore. Keep your head up Gangsta L. Crisis, I seen the same thing happen to Really Doe.
