Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 3/3/2013

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis soar back up the charts with their breakout debut "The Heist," while Kutt Calhoun makes his entrance on the chart.

After Hip Hop lost its footing on last week's chart, the numbers rise with the latest album sales. On the strength of their "Saturday Night Live" performance, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis continue to post strong sales with their debut LP The Heist that's a mere few weeks away from gold status. Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar remains a steady seller with his major label debut good kid, m.A.A.d city, moving a hair more than last week and bumping up a few spots. A$AP Rocky slides down the chart with Long.Live.A$AP, while others - 2 Chainz, Game and Chief Keef - maintain their footing.

One of the few debuts on this week's chart comes from Kutt Calhoun, whose latest album Black Gold manages to make a healthy entrance. The release marks the Strange Music rapper's first LP since 2010's Raw and Un-Kutt, and features a handful of emcees including Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko and Brotha Lynch Hung.

Check below to see who had the strongest week on the charts.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Soar With "The Heist"

It's been almost six months since Macklemore and Ryan Lewis released their collaborative debut full-length The Heist, but they continue to push units. The duo, whose breakout hit "Thrift Shop" sat atop the charts for consecutive weeks, bumps back up the charts thanks to an appearance on this past weekend's "Saturday Night Live." After selling 22,000 units last week, the Seattle, Washington duo moves 42,000 copies, pushing it up from No. 16 to 4. The continued success is likely to maintain, as they're yet to release the video for "Thrift Shop"'s follow-up single "Can't Hold Us."

Kutt Calhoun Debuts Strong With "Black Gold"

Strange Music signee Kutt Calhoun had a nice debut on this week's chart with his latest album Black Gold. The Kansas City, Missouri native bowed at No. 105 with 4,300 copies sold, enough to put him one notch ahead of Game's Jesus Piece that sold 100 fewer units. The rapper's fourth album, which follows 2010's Raw and Un-Kutt, features guest appearances from some of his Strange Music crew including Tech N9ne, Krizz Kaliko and Brotha Lynch Hung, and touts production almost entirely from Seven - save for "It's Goin' Down," helmed by Monsta Muzik.

    • SMFH

      ^^^ WOW! Ya niggas some fucking blood sucking leaches! Learn about the BUSINESS before you talk out your broke ass! Only artists not making money off of record sales are the ones with lame ass 360 deals. Not everybody got bullshit deal though. Them royalty checks are why Jay-Z, 50-Cent and Eminem are caked up and helped them invest in all that other shit they're doing now. The more album sales the bigger the shows... Which means more money for the artist. You think if a artist sells under 500k that he's selling out big shows?... NOPE! Filling up the club don't mean you got a sold out show. SMH! You chump change, small minded lames don't look at the bigger picture. You're probably steal money out your mother purse too. It's obvious that you get no money if you have to steal some shit that cost a dollar or $10. Don't tell me you got it either because that just makes you a lame ass crumb bum. It's 2013! Support this shit because it's yours. Hip Hop is the ONLY music genre suffering. Get your facts straight. I make music so I'm always checking the numbers for everybody. Adele is at about 10 million records sold with her last album and Taylor Swift is at about 3 million right now and her album only been out for about 3 months. You leaches are in denial. But the fact is Hip Hop fans kill everything they are part of including Hip Hop!

    "He's had the right promotion and lived up to and exceeded expectations" Yet when Wayne released The Carter IV, people were saying Birdman was buying copies every week. None of these dudes are getting great promotion. That's why K Dot's numbers are suspect. Plus with illegal downloading how could he possibly still be selling this much week after week? Be realistic for once in your grossly underachieving life.

Go Get It was a sleeper single, Trap Back Jumpin was a street single and Ball dropped pretty late & that may just help him go gold, barely. it would be flopping if T.I. had Alicia Keys or Beyonce on his banger, dropped and commercialized the single but only makin small download numbers.. that would prove without a shadow of a doubt that T.I's done. but Trouble Man made 400K + with minimal features - big names, but minimal features... two of his singles are on his own.

      it keeps steady becouse he keeps dropping videos (poetic justice) and doin tv shows like SNL and Letterman.

  • Eye Control

    Macklemore and Frank's Ocean only sold as much as they did because they're gay. And for the record, I'm not racist. I have nothing against gays. Macklemore may be talented, but he has the whole gay community buying his album just because he's gay, and not for his talent. Whatever him and his partner Ray Lewis do in their free time is their business, but I don't agree with having gays in hip hop. He'd be cooler if he didn't dress gay, but he's always wearing yellow which is one of the colors of the gay rainbow. Gay artists aren't for me.

THAT'S FUCKIN WHY HE WAS ABLE TO GET THE SENTENCE HE DID. Yall have no idea, he even says it, if I'm a snitch and im fake wouldn't i have been called out years ago?? FOH, you clueless idiots. His new album didn't have a lot of promotion and didn't really have any commercially standout bangers. I mean, I thought "Trap Back Jumpin" was fuckin fire, that beat is crazy but commercially it's not a good single. Like, his album Paper Trail had so many commercially viable bangers on there. That's why is sold almost 600,000 first week. But that was also years ago too. Album sales keep getting worse. But fuck it, he's almost Gold so that ain't bad at all.

      Don't worry about Justification Game has his real fans no matter how big or small, if ppl miss the album its their fault, besides most of those other artist that ppl are buying are just trends no real hip hop fans buy c.ds anymore its just wannabe's and followers...thats why you see ppl like Nas and Game acts like that have low numbers but acts like Macklemore and Lewis and nikki minaj ect. outsell them ,its just the way it is in the age of social media, the Man tells these followers what to buy and they listen or dare I say FOLLOW!!
