It has been just a few short days since Lil Wayne 's Tha Carter 3 [ click to read ] was released to retailers around the globe, and already the Louisiana born and raised rapper is close to rounding off a million copies sold.
According to the Nielsen SoundScan 's Building Charts , Tha Carter 3 , which was released last Tuesday (June 10th) was set to reach it's million-copies-sold peak by last evening, which is when Soundscan closes its trackings. On it's first day alone, Tha Carter 3 's sales stood at 423,00 copies sold , and as of June 13th, the album has sold roughly 630,000 copies.
Tha Carter 3 is toe-to-toe with Kanye West 's Graduation , which sold nearly 600,000 copies it's first day of release. Lil Wayne , who is still currently signed to Cash Money / Universal Motown Records , has a lot more to boast about, as his smash single, "Lolipop" still sits at number one on the singles charts.
