Nelly has proven to be one of hip-hop’s top-selling artists with a track record of over 40 million albums sold worldwide. Young Jeezy’s first single “Put On” is currently No. 47 on the Billboard Hot 100 and his last album, 2006′s The Inspiration, sold over a million copies.

    As of right now, i can see Jeezy selling more. His song with Kanye is doing very well, especially on the R&B charts.

    Nelly can’t seem to catch a break with getting a single that wil chart.

  8. Joshua

    We need to see how well Stepped On My Jz performs chartwise…

  9. yeahyeah

    nelly will beat young jeezyin sells. nelly already has a big fan base compared to young jeezy, so im siding with nelly. it doesnt matter to me though cause ill be picking both of their cds up, so all in all, ill be the winner.

    Nelly’s publicist already said Nelly has been pushed back to Sept 16 because he’s getting ready for a Promo tour and wraping up some other things for the album! So Jeezy should have that date to himself…then again who knows if Jeezy won’t get pushed back! I don’t recall any artist coming out on their original drop date for some time now!

  12. ThaFuture

    young jeezy of course.

  13. Bass Man

    Nelly because of his loyal fanbase. Sweatsuit was great.

  14. JJ

    there is no way nelly would lose if they shared da same date.. stepped on my Js just got number one on 106 & Park so its gonna do well on da charts no doubt

  15. Giselle

    I think Jeezy gonna sell more, Def Jam promotes him well. Nelly might sell, but none of his material is really worth buying anymore.

  16. Sarah

    Let’s be real here, DefJam vs Universal

    That should be the competition cause it depends on which label is willing to put out the money to promote their artist.

    I don’t think this is going to happen..because I saw Jeezy’s cd was slated to come out July 29 and I’m hearing thru the rumor mill that Nelly’s date has been changed as well.

  18. yeahyeah

    jeezy’s cd wont come out on august 19th cause amazon is not a reliable source. they will put release dates on everything and eventually, the movies, cds, or games will be pushed back. nelly on the other hand has delayed his cd for over a year now so i think it’s a wise time to release his cd before people will go crazy.

    YOUNG JEEZY IS KILLIN EM RIGHT NOW. SO PROB JEEZY.
