Forget watching it… Lil Wayne has officially TAKEN the throne from Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Lil Wayne was thisclose to making history as the first rap act to open with back-to-back million-selling albums. Thanks to record-setting iTunes sales of 300,000, plus the push provided by a post-VMA on-sale stunt, Weezy’s eagerly anticipated Tha Carter IV will debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart next week on sales of 964,000, according to figures provided by Nielsen SoundScan.

So I guess we should go ahead and mentally prepare for Tha Carter V through XC…
Y’all have been having a field day in photoshop… 😆
In related news, Trey Songz climbs aboard the Lil Wayne train this week by remixing one of Tha Carter IV‘s hot tracks for his own personal pleasure.
Check out Trey’s version of Weezy’s “Nightmares of the Bottom” below…
What do you think of Trey’s remix? I swear Trey Songz is the R. Kelly of the new millineum… some of his remixes are better than his albums! #wheredeydothatat???
Did you add to Weezy’s 1st week sales?
If so, what are your thoughts on Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV?
