        Stfu h0£! We are in the streaming age now. Catch up bih! Nicholas can’t even sell that now! You are comparing a rookie to someone who’s been in the game a decade, granted Nicholas still doesn’t have any number 1 songs after 1000000006483636311 attempts at it! 😂😂😂😂

        She definitely doesn’t. Nicki is nowhere near being on Drake’s level.

    This is truly incredible! Not many artists could achieve this.

    “and sees him join Nicki Minaj to extend their leads as the highest-selling rappers to debut within the last decade”

    Another day, another fake accolade for Nicki Minaj by TGJ in a story that has nothing to do with her.
