Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 2/10/2013

Joe Budden makes a nice debut on the charts, while Brotha Lynch Hung has a solid entry with "Mannibalector."

Joe Budden makes a strong debut on the charts this week with his third straight-to-retail album No Love Lost, which enters the top 20 straight out the gate. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, whose single "Thrift Shop" has now spent consecutive weeks atop the singles chart, continue scanning product and pull ahead of A$AP Rocky's debut studio album Long.Live.A$AP, which continues to slide down.

With a few artists getting a bump thanks to one day of post-Grammy Award Sales (2 Chainz, Nas), Brotha Lynch Hung manages to be the sole Hip Hop artist to debut in the top 200 this week, scoring a nice placement above No. 70 with a solid number of copies sold.

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

Joe Budden Finds Love Isn't Lost On The Charts

Joe Budden has scored his highest chart debut to date since the release of his eponymous debut, which peaked at No. 8 in 2003. This week, the Jersey native bows at No. 15 with a solid 30,000 copies sold of No Love Lost, putting it at the high-end of the sales projections released last week. The success stems from the attention gleaned from both his charting single "She Don't Put It Down" featuring Lil Wayne and Tank, which is becoming his best-performing track to date, and his appearance on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop," which has been airing over the past month.

For No Love Lost, the Slaughterhouse rapper took a different approach. He relies heavily on guests for the LP, which features appearances from Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Juicy J, Lloyd Banks and a crew of others. Joey Jumpoff's last album, the digital offering Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst, picked up in sales after its subsequent retail release, peaking at No. 9 on the Rap Albums chart.

Brotha Lynch Hung Attacks The Chart With Mannibalector

Strange Music's Brotha Lynch Hung shows that hard work continues to pay off. His third album for the label, Mannibalector, makes a solid chart debut, entering at No. 67 with 7,900 copies sold. The LP, which marks the third in a trilogy following the story of a man evolving into a cannibalistic killer, co-stars a handful of guests including Yelawolf, Tech N9ne and Hopsin, picking up where prior releases Coathanga Strangla (2011) and Dinner and a Movie (2010) left off. Brotha Lynch recently spoke to HipHopDX about his thoughts on the album as well as hoping to meet Eminem.

    "As a fan of good music i just wanna hear a dope album" I agree with that. I just think people go into certain albums already looking to hate. Doesn't matter if it's KL, Ross, Wayne, whoever. Fans know what they're getting when they pop that CD into their deck, or cue up their IPOD.
  • thechosenone
    ppl just hatin the fact that MMG r runnin the game n outsellin everyone, ppl need to realise the how good MMG music is fuck all the haters out there, YMCMB and MMG outsellin everyone and wont stop at all
    • Stop lying to yourself
      wait so who is MMG out selling? Not 2 Chainz, not Kendrick, Lamar, not Young Jeezy! Not even out selling J. Cole! LOL and Mac Miller and Macklemore both sold more independently than Meek Mill with MMG behind him!
  • Big Bang theory
    Yo on another note these fucking no it all behind the desk at home typing from mommies basement ass niggas always want to add up niggas loses. Yo you motherfuckers do not know these niggas and they don't even know of yall motherfuckers existence. Why do you fucking lames think its cool when one of your favorite artist you niggas like to jerk off to does something good yall feel like yall got a victory too. You niggas can't be serious bragging about K-Dot record sells and then get made at niggas for bragging about 2chain record sells.

    I get it now, i get it now. I understand it all right now. These Macklemore and Ryan Lewis used the gay approach to sell records. You people realize the shit thats selling the most records now is everything thats gay right. These niggas used a support gay marriage to sell there records and these lady gaga fans is eating that shit up. You niggas can't tell me that shit these niggas is spitting is hot. With that said they aight but that gay shit to sell records is what these niggas did. Kool Yo i know most of you fucking geeks(i ain't mad at you nerds don't be offended) probably never seen the Boomdocks. Gangsta Liscious Homeys over Hoes episode. Them niggas predicted this gay shit in hip hop and all you little fags is eating that shit up. I don't hate gay people(hate fags) i just hate you queers acting like yall got a movement going on or comparing fags to slavery and shit.

    Even if it takes Kendricks album 5 years to go platinum who cares except kendrick and his label. As a fan of good music i just wanna hear a dope album. why the fuck you care if it goes platinum as long as the beats are dope and the spitter can spit who gives a fuck!

    "He's outselling many dudes with albums out right now" I don't have anything againsn't his success, but when you clowns sit here all day and type how great he is it just comes off like you're bandwagon jumpers. The minute KL goes pop you'll be trashing him, and that's a fact.

    "Ricky is pushing 40 and if he won't be alive much longer whether it be from a heart attack or a bullet" Thank you for that brilliant medical rundown, Dr. Dummy.
  • Anonymous
    "He won't even see as many albums as Ross has" How do you know that though? Does quoteman have a crystal ball to see the future? Ross didnt put out his first album until he was damn near 30 so Kendrick is already on track to have a more prolific career. Ricky is pushing 40 and if he won't be alive much longer whether it be from a heart attack or a bullet.

    "thats 712 k sold in less than 4 months" It will be at least 5 months until it goes platinum assuming it does. For this day and age that's pretty good, but let's not kid ourselves thinking he's suddenly the Lebron James of hip hop. To do that he needs to outsell Wayne, Drake, Eminem and Jay. He won't even see as many albums as Ross has. Now be gone owner of poor musical taste, and take that pitiful Miami Vice reference with you.

      THIS IS WHAT YOU SAID! "It's taken Kendrick half a year just to go gold." "By the time he's platinum Jay's daughter will have already graduated high school." YOU'RE A FUCKING JOKE
    • @quote-man
      WOW. Do you realize how dumb you look? He just released his major label debut (which is his second studio album; his first was released independently). He's outselling many dudes with albums out right now. With the steady sales he's got, he'll go platinum in a month or two. He's just getting started. What do you have against Kendrick?

    People are dowloading these days man!! everybody is saying game's album is a "flop" and "he aint going to make much $" off Jesus Piece you crazy! the album cost half a million 2 make from start to finish. his worldwide album sales is nr 350,000. (350,000 x $10)- you do the math! even when he's paid his due to interscope and overhaeds he still winning! youve also gotta remember the album only been out since dec 11( some of the other cats in the chart had theyr albums out in 6 month ago. Compared to Game's usual numbers it not quite up there but in terms of being a flop would you call making a couple of mill for spitting a few 16's- a flop! wish i had his job!! plus the album is fucking DOPE!! better than than 50's SNITCH BITCH IMMORTAL i guarantee!!

      nigga please he had the entire rap industry featured on there! people dont give out verses for free like dat. not to mention the mish mash of big name producers and all the promo and this album is far from breaking even. and your math is fucked. 350k x 10 = 3.5 million - 75% for the white bean counters in ties = like 875k and thats being generous

      Nigga please? Game doesnt get $ 10,00 he probably gets $ 0,10 for every sold album

      you a idiot game is not getting 10 dollars a album he on a major label the top artist dont even get 2 dollars on a major label you stans will do anything to to make yourself feel better
    • is that so
      So only reason why Fifty and Em can go plat these days on a short time period is because their stans buying their records. Shiiitzs. Fiddy goes plat, because Dre and Em on his record. He would do same numbers as all the other rappers, if not for Em and Dre.

      YESSIR, I didn't know you were a Joe Budden fan. What was it you said? Men lie, women lie, numbers don't? Budden sold 30k, FACT. The single with Lil Wayne didn't help him at all.
    • dont be a stan
      Buddens did lousy. Homey could have made more dough by flipping burgers or working at Wall Mart.
