Straight from Hiphopdx. We all kinda knew it was coming. It was even advertised ridiculously over here without Lollipop being that big a hit.

It has been just a few short days since Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter 3 was released to retailers around the globe, and already the Louisiana born and raised rapper is close to rounding off a million copies sold.

According to the Nielsen SoundScan‘s Building Charts, Tha Carter 3, which was released last Tuesday (June 10th) was set to reach it’s million-copies-sold peak by last evening, which is when Soundscan closes its trackings. On it’s first day alone, Tha Carter 3‘s sales stood at 423,00 copies sold, and as of of June 13th, the album has sold roughly 630,000 copies.

Tha Carter 3 is toe-to-toe with Kanye West‘s Graduation, which sold nearly 600,000 copies it’s first day of release. Lil Wayne, who is still currently signed to Cash Money/Universal Motown Records, has a lot more to boast about, as his smash single, “Lolipop” still sits at number one on the singles charts. LINK

Now he has no excuse not to pay his auto-mo-bills (c) Destiny’s Child
