How Rick Ross got Wale's album to number 1 on the Billboard [Video]

Keep in mind these are just debates and opinions, don't go around spewing these opinions like they're the gospel truth(which in itself has multiple angles for interpetation).

Wale saw a huge increase in album sales after signing with Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group. On Interscope Wale’s first album Attention Deficit sold 30k in its first week, fast forward 2 years and his Ambition album sells 164k first week and charts at Number 1 [Ed. note: No. 1 on the Hip-Hop R&B Charts in its first week]. Can this success be attributed to his affiliation with Rick Ross? The Friday Hip Hop Report crew discuss.

People get caught up in this Billboard ranking thing, and while it is a fun fact to know, people tend to forget that an album especially HipHop albums take ahuge dip in sales after week 1. I'd rather sell a consist
amount over a long period of time than fizzle right the fuck off.
