what u meant to say was J. Cole is not Pop(ular) with white teen demographic.
B.o.B. had no buzz sold, 87K
Big Sean own buzz isnt bigger than Cole's but he sold 87K
Tyler the Creator buzz got him 50K, n 3/4 of black twitter never heard of him to MTV awards last week.
White kids buying yo album is not equal buzz.
Lil Wayne bout to pull a mill on Carter 4 and sum would say he aint have no buzz for his album
B.o.B is LOVED by the white community. He had 2 big singles and white girls love him. He went gold. And he is doing an all Asian tour, he is doing just fine in his niche
Big Sean got zero support from Kanye (Ye showed more love to Yonkers than any Big Sean track post "Get'cha some") and zero marketing. My Last is a big single but most ppl believe it's a Chris Brown cut. Although I was surprised he didn't do better, year is not over though.
Tyler the Creator put out his album too fast in order to capitalize on his buzz. He had a strong internet buzz but he seriously should have waited and built up anticipation more. Heard about dude and his crew in March, son put out an album May. Not enough time.
Lil Wayne doesn't need buzz at this point
White kids buying your album when you have buzz helps quite a bit. J. Cole has no successful single, and Any Given Sundays have no buzz. What will help him though is his affiliation with Jay. Jay is going to make sure his album is shipped and stocked in all markets instead of submarined like Wale's-The Juice
