"Checking" simply refers to indicating one's interest in acquiring something or seeing what it is all about. On hip-hop forums, "checking" is usually expressed in "im/im not checking for it" in terms of being interested in downloading and listening for the latest album from a particular artist. If you dislike a particular artist, you can let everyone know how disinterested you are by saying "im not checking for it" to indicate that even though you can download the album for free, its not even worth your time
P. Diddy might have a new album coming out but hes wack imo, im not checking for it

"Doing Numbers" refers to when something sells alot of units or a respectable amount of units. Mostly used on forums to predict, celebrate or ridicule the performance of an album that just hit the market. In hiphop forums, arguments over successful/superior albums can sometimes result in comparing Soundscan/Hits Daily Double sales.

For an album to "do numbers", usually it needs to sell AT LEAST 100k in the first week, go #1 on the chards, and go GOLD or PLATINUM at some point.. otherwise it is a dud
The J.Cole album is coming out after being pushed back 5x, it has no buzz behind it, i doubt it'll do numbers
