Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 2/28/2010

50 Cent is on the gold plaque home-stretch, Drake looks at 400,000 and Freeway & Jake One fall nearly 100 spots.

Sade battled off Lady Antebellum for another week to maintain her #1 spot for a third week with Soldier Of Love. With more television appearances coming, the veteran Jazz/Soul vocalists is enjoying a comeback after nearly a decade hiatus. Her Epic Records project is also a celebrated success to the label who's biggest enjoyment last year was a posthumous Michael Jackson compilation. The 51 year-old singer is likely to reach platinum by month's end.

The Black Eyed Peas enjoyed their 38th week on the charts. The group fell one spot of their Interscope Records release The E.N.D. Already at double platinum, a new video "Imma Be Rocking That Body," has will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and Apl.De.Ap staying as close to the top of the charts as they've been in months. will.i.am will soon be working on Usher's Raymond v. Raymond.

Lil Wayne's Rebirth slipped one spot too, as Wayne suggests that a video will surface within a month of his collaboration with Eminem for "Drop The World" . With radio support and Wayne remaining free indefinitely, Rebirth could have platinum potential. Alicia Keys' Element Of Freedom fell out of the Top 10 last week. The platinum release was rivaled in week sales by Rihanna's dark outcry, Rated R.

Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 and Eminem's Relapse remain cemented on the Top 200, with 25 and 41 weeks on the chart respectively. Jay-Z already began speaking about his next album, reportedly his first with Sony Records, two weeks ago.

50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct has crossed the 400,000 mark and heads towards platinum in what appears to be his final Interscope album after a tremendous eight year run. Close behind, Drake hopes to take his debut EP, So Far Gone to 400,000 next week, which remains groundbreaking for an album that few people are recognizing as "official," based on its free download beginnings.

Freeway & Jake One's The Stimulus Package fell nearly 100 places between its debut and sophomore week. Free's first "official" independent album, this on the Minneapolis-based Rhymesayers label was supported with a whole album's worth of production from Seattle's most prolific producer, Jake One. The album features guest appearances from Beanie Sigel, Young Chris, Raekwon and Freeway's latest label employer, Birdman. More videos from the project are expected soon, though radio has not embraced the independent project.

    The BEP are unbeliveable. They are selling very strong. It's also good to see people are buying "The Stimulus Package". I hope it will reach 20 to 30k.

    • JasonCTown

      Should be fire. In an interview I read in Complex, he said it's entirely different from Relapse 1....getting away from just rhymin' whatever somes to mind and focusing more on subject matter.

  • HarryRichardson

    Freeway new joint is tight

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    Since Eminem is only pushing 2mil that should tell u folks everyone else is gonna struggle..............Get over these sales its a recession..................everybody and their momma got a computer so listening to music for free is easy access

    • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

      I said 50 was goin platinum in his 1st week??? Stop lying to the public faggot.............@C-ARSON and JASONCTOWN yall my puppets and everyone knows it...................

    • c-arson

      yeah, WTF Duke Boy? Admit it, your broken. At the very least a Delusional, Misguided, Hypocrite. Check all that apply.

    • JasonCTown

      You're the one who said 50 was going platinum his first week, so trying to play the other card now only makes you look even more delusional.

  • fdfasfaf

    the magical negro

  • name

    damn you think when an album came out almost a year ago, everybody would have it by now, who the hell is still buying eminem's album, and i aint hatin, i'm just wondering

    • BALLS

      WHO'S STILL BUYIN EM'S ALBUM?? HOW ABOUT, WHO THE FUCK IS STILL BUYING BLACK EYED PEAS ALBUM??? IT'S THEIR GODDAMN 38TH WEEK, SINCE THAT ALBUM'S BEEN OUT AND THEY STILL SELLIN 50, 000 PLUS COPIES?!?!? WTF?!?! HOW?!?! 50 CENT SOLD 50, 000 COPIES IN HIS THIRD WEEK! BLACK EYED PEAS ARE DOIN IT IN THEIR 38TH WEEK!! HAHA!! WOW...

  • nyblackguys

    People always like celebrities, but I think those in uniform deserve more respect. They defend our country and safeguard our policy. Join blackmilitaryfriends.com, show your love and respect to our military heroes.

  • blactrs78

    its silly to assume no black ppl will buy a rock album (even though rebirth is not necessarily a rock album). all black ppl dont listen to hip hop or act gangsta or fall victim to the ignorant mindset of what seems ot be the majority of our ppl.... we are just as different within our race as any other race. we're just to "cool" to acknowledge someone that's different which = ignorance...imho

  • WTF

    What The Fuck is this shit Freeway only sold 13 k damn thats sad for classic album at least buy it for the sick packaging

  • dcboyz303

    50 cent is hip hop. HE THE REALEST NIGGA IN THE GAME. AND NOBODY SELLING ALBUM THESE DAYS LOOK AT YOUNG MONEY AND LIL WAYNE SALES 50 CENT BEAT THEM BOTH.

    • pstyles

      Number One 50 has been out longer with this record. Number two he IS NOT the realist in the game. Go buy a couple of Scarface albums and get ya mind right kid.

    • Blokk2Blokk

      Dumbass 50cents cd has been out longer than lil wayne's and young money's

  • Quiet Dog Bite Hard

    50 cent heads towards platinum...? say whaaaaaat??? It will take him another 75 weeks of constant sales of this current rate to nudge plat. (& Ross was at 406 000 in Dec last year, dickcheese puzzymonsta.) & Waynes experiment ain't goin near plat either. It sucks balls. Jay gonna outsell Em in due time (soon). Unless Em keeps re-re-releasing Relapse. Rihanna is one dirty talentless skank. Keys is the shit. There's a real artist. BEP are an embaressment to music. Somebody's obviously buying their shit, but who? I feel for all real rap artists. It's a tough battle to get recognised against the money and push of the "top names". E.g. Last years 2 best rap albums, Raekwon & Mos Def hardly made a big numbers wise. Damn!

    • Dkrolls

      Ha ha DX needs to work on their editing before submitting an article. Platinum? I think they mean gold and lets be clear 50 aint going to even get gold. BISD will go platinum in 3012 when we all flying around in fucking space cars ha ha! Damn boo boo its over for you snitch bitch. Your mans cant even stay on interscope they got to go independent, remember when 50 said independent labels were for rappers whose careers were over? ha ha karma is a bitch!

  • MH13

    That Freeway & Jake One album is WAY slept on..The Stimulus Package is DOPE!!!!

  • dree33

    50 cents album Before I Self destruct has know been downloaded 8 miillion times on the internet making it 8x platnium if illigal sales counted 2 more million for it to go Dimond .

    • Dkrolls

      That means nothing. people will download something to see if they like it cos they know its free. That is not the same as people going into a record store and parting with their hard earned cash. 50 shit flopped, how come BEP still sells records every week and people still download their shit? Because they have hot singles that keep the album alive. Fiddy aint got nothing, his shit is wack.

    • Heat45

      @ Dree33.. Im a hip hop fan and I love 50's battle rap attitude and I find his music somewhat inspirational.. But even I have to say there is no way any of us could know how many albums are being pirated.. Yeah its probably a high number up in the millions but nobody knows for sure... The same goes for any rapper though.. Eminem's Relapse would probably be pushing diamond, Jay-Z would probably be well over 5mill, and 50 and Weezy would probably be close to double platinum or higher.. But it goes for every artist not just 50..

    • c-arson

      You to are out of your fucking minds!

    • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

      Its a simple as that..................the streets dont care bout sales

  • the real 50

    50 cents album is plat world wide and drake is the hottest hing to hit the scene ever, him and 59 are dropping an album this summer called "new and old, a G story real life and lyrics" Its soooooooooooo tight ive heard it! No one who works for DX knows about it because they are the "ford focus" of hip hop websites! Cheap, sorry, and no one likes them. I'm here on accident, i thought it was a joke site lol lmao rotfl tdtgulsh The owners of this site are in the klan!dont believe me look it up KKK all day

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    50 is richer than a motherfucker..............He's rich bitch

  • peter cottonmouth

    baby by me by 50 cent sucks!!!!!!!! no, if, ands, or buts.

  • beantwn

    whole discussion about BISD's sales is gettin mad old move on folks

    • sukmydik

      Homie what else is there to talk about? 50 talk mad shit on how great his album will sell over everyone in the industry and now he has flopped, he went from millions in sales to he barely going gold. but i feel ya!!

  • RiggityRoss

    See what happens to real hip hop.....Stimulus Package is a good quality cd.....People need to support it....50 Cent had his moment....BISD was weak and had only 4 or five songs....B Shit gets support and the real gets none!!!

  • Raheem Morris

    Why do you bitch as niggas keep talkin bout 50. Honestly nigga made more money in day than yall make in your life time who gives a shit about his sales. Stupid ass niggas.

    • Holier then thou

      So your logic says the more money a guy gets the more we should "respect" him? Dude money is just paper and metal people treat WAY more importantly then they should. Nevermind the 50 carries himself like a jackass talking shit about EVERYBODY with a some popularity. Nevermind the fact he acts like his album will go 4x platinum by making the same damn song. Or the 50 Cent apologist who come here week after week. I'll admit the 50 talk is old, hell I stopped giving a damn after a month, but that whole "He makes more money than you" excuse is stupid as fuck. I'm not getting any money so why should I or anyone else hide our opinion of him?

  • funkdocta

    if you need instrumentals visit my blog ! albums and singles ! i take requests ! CLICK ON MY NAME!

  • YaBoiJ

    how can ANYONE defend 50 cent? hes a joke! "400,000 on his way to platinum" are u serious????? HE SOLD 8,000 COPIES LAST WEEK!!!!!!!!!! he would not have been relevant at all if he was never shot 2457862587943 times!

  • Cochise_313

    50 fuckin flopped

    • sukmydik

      co-sign. that album will not go platium unless he dies and people start buying it they did big, 2pac, michael jackson, etc.

  • PUZZYMONSTA

    hMMM NOW WHAT RICK ROSS ? YOUR SALES FOR DEEPER THAN RAP IS 406,905 AND 50 CENT'S BEFORE I SELF DESTRUCT ARE 411,100 AND STILL SELLING. AND JUST THINK HIS ALBUM LEAKED! I GUESS YOU GOT BURIED YOU FAT FUCK. AND I WONDER WHY THEY WONT POST HIS 50'S INTERNATIONAL SALES NOT TO MENTION HE IS TOURING RIGHT NOW!

  • sukmydik

    And i still dont understand why 50 Cents album is certified Gold and it has not sold more than 500,000 copies yet! Shipments dont mean shit, it just means the album is just sitting on store shelves while people pass it by! I actually brought it and was not impressed, but hey the nigga tried! I honestly like underground, indie mcees and artist that most probably will ever sell 10,000 copies. i will always support those cats cuz their style is so different from mainstream, what everyone else is saying and doing. I want a new Beatnuts album, lol. Damn, Gucci Mane isnt moving units anymore?

    • @SUKMYDIK

      it is certified gold by RIAA standards (which only count US sales btw), unlike SoundScan which count a purchase of an album the RIAA has their own counting method; the number that is shipped BACK from the total is potentially, in their eyes, the number practically sold (they also include online album purchases, eg itunes). BS way of counting or not thats the way it goes (anyway 410 is getting pretty close, he could make it by the end of march) ps. i did like BISD, it was decent enough album in my eyes (3.5//5), worth buying

  • c-arson

    • Harry Richardson

      @ C-ARSON, yea give me your facebook name, but the only bitch on there im intrested in is your mother, I bet that head you gave Dre, Jayz, and Qtip, you learned from her, and bitch I go to concerts to enjoy the vibe and the music, not to sneak back stage like your groupie dick sucking ass

    • c-arson

      You should try goin to some shows and concerts its lots of fun little buddy. I'm going to see The Roots live in D.C. on the 13th can't wait for the shamrock fest. green beer green weed indeed.

    • c-arson

      Keep reading and replying groupie! Want my facebook page too? I only got bitches on there so you'll fit right in. sucadiclicadiceatadicup.

    • HRCMS

      @ C-ARSON aka SUPER HEAD, nobodys following your ho ass around the forum, but I read that fucked up shit you said about Guru, and him being in an induced coma didnt look good, look at the replies to that comment and you will see nobody respects your shit, your like the young berg of the bloggers, and im going to shit on you every chance i get until you grow up

    • HRCMS

      @ C-ARSON, now you sound like a little groupie bitch, waiting at shows to suck dick, you shook Dre's and Jayz's hand, and smoked a blunt with Qtip, did you get on your knees bitch, like super head. you talk shit about rappers that sell, but you basing your dislike for rebirth on a fucking review, your a real live ho, and i bet if you met Khalid and he shook your hand and let you suck his dick, you would become a fan, i see you like to super head a rapper before you support him

    • c-arson

      @hrcms I'm definitely laughing at you! What are you chasing me around the forums? I don't dislike Wayne but the rebirth is shit. Now DJ khaled on the other hand.....that shit is just awful. its not just me, the rebirth didn't get 1 positive review yet it sells because a bunch of tools like yourself support cuz you never left the county you grew up in. You block huggin ignorant little bitch. and yes this is me laughing at you, hahahahahahahahahahhahaaahhhahaaa.........by the way you don't know what artists I like. I download a lot of shit but I also go to artists i support live shows buy their merch and show real hiphop love. you don't know what the fuck your talking about, I've met Dr. Dre, shook Jay-z's hand, Smoked a blunt with Q-tip. gtfoh.

    • HRCMS

      @ CARSON, keep laughing long enough for someone to run a dick in your mouth, you faggot homo, people buy what they like, and yo hoe ass always got a negative comment to make, not everyone is a flaming homosexual like you, if you dont like something why the fuck are you laughing at those who purchased it, when the artist you like dont sell because pussy's like you download for free

    • The Eyez

      Fuck Khaled. I'm sick of seeing that got damn advertisement of his fat ass face too. I'm "Fed Up" "we the best" Fuck you man, watch your calorie intake you gay son of a bitch.

    • c-arson

      Yeah i like the release dates topic more. Mainstream rap at a all high low. Talent to success ratio is way out of balance, more so then ever.

    • Articulate1

      All these fags that sell a lot these days are laughable and not worth mentioning.

  • JFURY

    Just bought that Freeway and Jake One and it goes super hard if you like that traditional east coast feel. Definetly a burner. Just mad I had to go to 2 stores to find it. Thats crazy. Stop burning cd's all the time, buy some and keep hip hop alive Peace

  • HHDX

    LETS TRY THIS AGAIN................ NO 50 TALK THANK YOU

    • BWS-Fish

      Normally I would agree but in this case i don't because i feel it is vital to point out that 50 CENT'S ALBUM IS LEVEL PEGGING WITH A MIXTAPE BY DRAKE!!! Let that sink in - an artist with no albums to his name has a mixtape with equal sales to an established artist who considers himself to be the best ther is. HELP 50 GO GOLD!!!

    • c-arson

      will you please do this after every Duke boy post? thanks.

  • amer.....

    damn that nigga 50 still movin units...gold in not time and maybe platinum in the long run with a street cd..well damn congrats to fif

  • Bpayne

    50's new album blows, I'm glad I aint waste money on that peice of shit, I don't know how he could go from get rich or die trying and massacre to curtis and before I self destruct, the first 2 were SO good, but honestly the last two sucked ass, wayne the rebirth sucks ass except for drop the world, and I know everybody is on jay z's nuts loving bp3, but I think it's his worst album, blows ass to me. Relapse was decent, but not as good as I'd hoped, still surprised it didn't reach 2 mill yet. I hate fag eyed peas and canibus? fuggghet about it, he'll never in life chart again haaha. We need some new music thats good and doesn't actually suck, when thats gonna happen I dunno, I am waiting patiently for Relapse 2 though

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    50 DONE FELL OFF LIKE BAD DOPE!! He aint relevant no more!! When u gotta use the excuse that your shit got leaked is what stopping your sales after the success he done had in the game is a weak ass bitch move. Nigga when ur music is hot it don't matter how much it got leaked that shit gone sale cause niggas want originals especially if the shit bangn!! Niggas wanna compare his shit with Waynes Rebirth album, bitch niggas thats a Rock album and just like a few Kats below me said aint no niggas really buyn that shit and he still damn near movn more units than 50 who shit been out since Nov. Compare 50 shit to Lil Wayne last Rap album then holla at me!!

  • TEXAS DRUG MONEY

    In 50 career number wise, this album flopped. People make an excuse for him, leaked before its due date. Jay-Z album got leaked and it still went platinum. Nobody bumpin 50 now cause his album sucks. Like jay said, nobody is afraid of 50 cause the industry doesn't respect him anymore. He's jealous of Jay career, but he can't beat him. Jay is the KING OF RAP, 50 is the joker.

  • HHDX

    LETS START OVER......................................... NO 50 TALK PLEASE......

  • KGK0

    where the nigga CANIBUS at?

  • bonney007

    here we go again with the soudscan haters.....u cats are losers....everybody on the charts are doin more than the haters on here....50 this 50 that wayne this wayne that.....u niggas are retards

  • rainer331

    every hater can come up with sayin about how 50's album flopped and how wack MC he is and all that.. . well album was dope and if there werent that digital sales and the leak he could probably sell around 650k first week.. and fiddys fans will always support him so we stronger than all those haters.. go listen 2 sum dj khaled bullshit and then complain about how rap changed. bitches

    • BWS-Fish

      Drake has shifter 400k as well and theres 2 points to remember here 1. Drake's disc is a fucking mixtape 2. It was available as a free download before it was released so that completely nulifies thsi bullshit about 50 sellin more if it hadnt leaked. I would have bought it if he'd produced somethin worth buying.

    • []D[][]\/[][]D

      You hit the nail in the fucking head. Best fucking comment in this bitch!!!!!

  • ya ya b

    mutha fukers, fiddy owned the charts this week no doubt he a real g n real g's doin real things, i can keep a secret is the song that ima sing listen...................... fiddy is the best dont doubt him hes goin hard he pushed 9k this week, which is sik interscope lovin him, fiddy album makes interscope more money then black eyed peas u wonder y? cause BEP have such high marketing and overheads r huge on fiddys albums they bare low fiddy is the best fuk the rest lloyd banks featuring 50 cent 'what it do' out next week!!!!!!!

  • Anon1

    The problem with this is there's gonna be 100 comments by the end of the day about hating, dickriding, sales being lies instead of just enjoying the music and enjoying the artists success. Only in the hip hop genre is there so much anger and emotions over sales. Just enjoy the music and if you don't like the artist keep their name out your mouth. Simple.

    • Rambo yo

      yeah man idk what's up with that... And I fuck up and read the comments knowing damn well its gonna be some 50 cent bullshit... I mean he's a decent artist not hating but fuck its been 3 or 4 months since the shit dropped... On to the next topic already

    • Heat45

      Lol yeah.. most posts on this site are 80% arguments about 50 Cent... I mean hes ok but people make such a big deal.. People really get angry about 50 Cent..

  • Heat45

    Its understandable to not like a certain rapper.. But some people are just flat out haters..lol

  • Heat45

    Its good to see Eminem, jay-Z, 50 Cent, and Lil Wayne are having successful albums.. Lil Wayne should never attempt a rock album again though..lol.. But if you don't have the other 3 you should go out a buy them.. They're all good albums.. LIL Wayne is the only rapper under the age of 35 who can sell records right now.. Maybe Drake will but he has more of an R&B sound than hip hop so I can't really count him.. Please don't reply if my comments anger you!! Thanks..

  • StuntMan Mic

    GET 50 DA FUCK OUTTA HERE...

  • PRO

    You are certified as soon as items are shipped. Has nothing to do with complaining or sales. DJ Premier received a platinum plaque for the work he did w/ Christina Aguilera before the album even hit shelves . . . because they SHIPPED 1 million units.

  • mpmp

    50 sucks big time!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • wouzi

    50 CENT AINT SOLD GOLD YET, SOME PPL MADE MISTAKE ON WIKIPEDIA. THIS SALES ARE OFFICIAL FROM SOUNDSCAN N HE REALLY FLOPED BAD N ROSS 5K FELT N ROSS WILL BE GOLD. LIL WAYNE DID WELL CUZ AINT NO BLACK FOLKS GONNA BUY ROCK ALBUM, ONLY MIXRACE N WHITE FOLKS WILL BUY DAT ALBUM. SO CONGRAT WAYNE.

  • Alex Fryling

    Fif is certifed gold because of interscope shipped a certain ammount to the stores he is now the third best selling rap album if you go back to last year and dont count black eyed peas. Worldwide hes over 650,000 sold and hes touring so he is still more then releveant

  • JimmySavilles

    LOL little wayne flopped.

  • Drucifer1983

    Damn, congrats to Sade, her album is great...........And Of Course Jay amd Em for being the only real MC's left keeping hope alive on the charts

  • dashboard

    i guess some of these rappers need to take a 10 year break like sade and maxwell to sale records cause this shit terrible

  • big teezy

    While everybody is focused on my man's fiddy, he is clearly outselling Wayne, who was supposedly the hottest thing out a couple of years ago.... Even fif in his down time (and this is his down time and time of not so huge popularity) he is still killing Wayne... And since when did that bitch Rihanna sell that many records?? Where in the fuck did that come from?? These sales are mad sketchy... AND SADE'S ALBUM IS THAT FYE!!!!!!

    • Heat45

      When the Eminem video hits BET the album will be gold in a few weeks.. But it will probably top out at around 550,000-600,000... 50's album will top out at around 500,000-550,000...

      Are you an IDIOT!?!? Wayne's album had a 2 month leak AND it just entered the charts a MONTH AGO... 50's album has been on the charts for 3 months and more.... in two weeks Wayne's album will have outsold 50..... ohhhh plz.... Why are 50 fans still begging for sales..

  • phadiga

    FIF BUY THEM UP HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! MPIRE...

  • CUTTBOY

    • Heat45

      You guys cry too much..

      50 and interscope know the only way 50 will stay relevant is if he sells decent numbers at least gold; for 50 gold is trash. Tthey 1st complained since his album leaked early that they could have a week of digital sales added on to soundscan... and then they complained again when he sold about 390 000 copies to be certified gold because it was along way before he actually would sell 500k. whereas most artists have to sell about 490 000 copies before they are certified gold... 50 is the biggest complainer in hip hop. but hey, hes got money so he can make moves like that. its just lame that soundscan gives into his demands. in a perfect world things would be fair and unbiased. dude shouldnt even be certified gold in my opinion until he hits 500k. his album was aight though. it sounded like he was trying way too hard to come off as a thug nigga
