redman should get off of def jam asap, they did a poor job promoting his album, those are independent type numbers, i don't care about the rappers at the top of the charts, it seems like the internet killed the rap star except for eminem since the kids don't buy music and just download these days, country artists still go multi platinum since their fanbase is older people that buy cds, btw welcome back top dawg, long time no see!
