IMO, this will be the breakthrough album for Tech, it's a shame that it will take all these features to do so, but I guess thats how society works, I cant think of anyone that deserves independant platinum status more than Tech, I will admit I was a little hesitant to get excited about having alot of mainstream artists on a Tech album but I have come to a relisation that this meens we will have a legit argument with MTV rapper fans that Tech was slept on all along, and we as OG fans can celebrate in knowing we beat everybody to the punch!!! Tech is about to join the short list of independant platinum selling artists!!
Well done Tech and good luck bro!
DIDNT KILLER GO PLATINUM
platinum huh??..i think ur trippin. I think it will out sell K.O.D, shit maybe even double it. But that only puts him at like 300,000 sold
tech is the first indie rapper to sell a million
Yeah, Eminem sells a lot of records, but he hasn't gone platinum in a week in a long time.
"Eminem’s “Recovery” will blast in at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week with 741,000 sold according to Nielsen SoundScan”Recovery’s” debut week sales surpasses the first week of Eminem’s last set, “Relapse,” which began at No. 1 in 2009 with 608,000. It also beats the opening of 2005′s “Curtain Call: The Hits” which entered at No. 1 with 441,000 in 2005."
and maybe eminem????? come on man you know em sells more records than anyone in the rap game......so if wayne did it then you know em did it....and hell do it again with his next cd and cd after and so on

Not happening. Let's face it, Tech's averages under 50,000 in his first week of release. Just because he has a bunch of names all over his album does not mean he's going platinum. Just because we know about Busta and Wayne being on this album doesn't mean that anywhere near a majority of those artists' fans know about it, or care. Wayne fans are used to Wayne on everybody's shit.
The last few people to go platinum in a week were Wayne and Taylor Swift. Maybe Eminem, I don't really remember. I know Relapse only sold something like 6 or 700,000 in the first week. Now, this "breakthrough" album may bring a lot of mainstream attention to Tech which will hopefully lead to platinum status over a period of time. But this album is not going platinum in it's first week, or even in it's first month. I love Strange Music and I think Tech deserves to go double diamond before the album even makes it to the record store, but I don't see him going platinum with this album, not for some time.
It rarely happens anymore, across ever genre. The industry is failing, why do you think they want to change platinum to 500,000 sales instead of a million?
Lulz, what a bunch of dumb bastards. I'll drop a platinum album before Tech does xD
Like people have said, it won't even go gold.
DIDNT KILLER GO PLATINUM
Ok, first of all Flicktion is a dumbass we all know that. If you don't think it will go at least gold, then maybe you should get off your asses and stop downloading illegal music and go buy the fucking album. All you guys that say it's not gonna do well that is why, i'm sure you all sit there with your limewire or your winrar and mediafire files. Honestly look at how many people like Tech on facebook or Em. Almost a mil for tech 30 mil for eminem and em is still having trouble going multi plat which is a joke. If over 800,000 people like Tech on facebook, you'd think all those fuckers would go buy the album, especially this newest edition. But i doubt they will.
