Well, the album 'Intuition' is out and just went platinum officially. So I think to have the music doing what it's doing right now, man, it's the ultimate. Nobody is really selling records out there but we are at a million records and we dropped it at Christmas, so we are just trying to get that thing to like two million, you know.

WHAT DOES DROPPED MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Dropped

Dropped is the fifth full-length album by industrial/hip hop artists Consolidated, which was released in 1998. The title could be a reaction to having been "dropped" by London Records because of poor album sales, but in some interviews Adam Sherburne explained that the title is a general reference to men having "dropped the ball" -- having failed to live up to their responsibilities -- in their relationships.
