Lil Wayne spoke from behind bars about Thank Me Later and what he expected from the album. Wayne predicted it to be one of the best albums of the year. From a commercial standpoint, Wayne said he felt the album would sell 2 million copies in its first week. In the end, Wayne wants the album to go diamond.
