Drake Is The Golden Child…

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/crooks-and-castles-buys-every-copy-of-drakes-album-in-best-buy"> ...Well, give or take roughly 40,000 scans. But with a 1st week tally of 462,989, I'm sure nobody is holding that against him. We all can thank 50 Cent for this meaningless accumulation of facts being so revered. The opening seven days is merely a fistfight compared to the year-long battle an album usually fends for to stay in the spotlight. However, a celebration is still in order. Thank Young Money, Cash Money, Universal Records, every Hip-Hop/R&B blog, publication and soapbox in existence and of course, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/crooks-and-castles-buys-every-copy-of-drakes-album-in-best-buy">Crooks & Castles</a> for such an accomplishment.
