Jay Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail went platinum on its first day of sales thanks to a deal with Samsung that gave the album away for free to the first one million people who downloaded a Samsung smartphone app [click here if you missed that].
LL Cool J is not here for Jay Z's manufactured record sales...
LL tells Diddy's Revolt TV
“Numbers are Numbers. In the numbers is truth, but in terms of touching the people it’s a little different."
"For me as an artist I still want to be able to touch the people individually."
"It still matters to me that people individually went out and bought my record. Although I still think a million sold is a million sold, but for me I like to know that a million PEOPLE bought my record, not a company bought a million copies of my record."
