Rapper Lil Kim, 35, took to her Twitter page tonight and tweeted the following: “Thanks to you guys!! #lilkimblackfridaymixtape sold 113,000 copies in 28 hours which made me the #1 seller on paypal ever =) !!!”
She’s referring to her new mixtape, Black Friday, which she posted on PayPal yesterday for sale at $10 a pop. If you do the math, that comes to a quick $1 million in cold hard cash.
I love Lil Kim, but I can’t help but to think that she’s stretching the truth a little bit to save face in light of the fact that newcomer Nicki Minaj snatched her crown and dipped with it.
And I’m not alone in my thinking.
“Hard to believe in one day Kimmy moved 113,000 mixtapes,” wrote Elliot Wilson on his blog, RapRadar.com. “Six years ago it took a week for her last album, The Naked Truth to sell 109,000 copies.”
Elliott also pointed out that fans who ante’d up the $10 couldn’t download the mixtape right away. The physical mixtape will be mailed to them at a later date.
Blogger Karen Civil broke down the PayPal policy that protects the company from unscrupulous dope boys businessmen who might use the service to move weight across state lines electronically:
“For people not familiar with paypal. New business users can make up to at least 3K first day without the account being suspended.. Anything over.. [3K] paypal will suspend your account for suspicion of fraud.”
Ergo, it is not possible for Lil Kim to have earned over $1 million in less than 28 hours like she says she did — at least not on PayPal.
