Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 3/21/2010

Sam Adams returns for round two, while Ludacris holds strong, but not the top spot. Lil Wayne has two releases in the Top 50, and DJ Khaled's Victory dwindles.

The second week of March was a quiet one for both Rap and R&B. No releases debuted in the Top 200, but the movement and milestones approaching made it interesting nonetheless. Ludacris fell two spots, from a #1 debut last week. Battle of the Sexes fell behind Pop Country outfit Lady Antebellum and Michigan Gospel singer Marvin Sapp respectively. Luda's latest album has not been met with many warm reviews, but the Atlanta/Def Jam mainstay nearly cleared 200,000 within two weeks. The album, which looks at gender relations, features such artists as Nicki Minaj, Trina, Eve and Lil Kim.

The Gorillaz' Plastic Beach fell seven spots in its second week. The multi-platinum crew's third effort, and first in five years, features Rap acts such as Mos Def, Snoop Dogg and previous Gorillaz collaborators, De La Soul.

Sade's Soldier Of Love held the #6 spot for another week. After several projections, the singer did not reach her platinum milestone last week, but will definitely meet her million next week. The Black Eyed Peas gained a spot with The E.N.D., as they have throughout many weeks in the last nine months. Lil Wayne's Rebirth fell five spots to #17. The incarcerated rapper has two releases in the Top 50, joining Lady Gaga, whose releases are both in the Top 10.

Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 remains in the Top 60, coming in at #59. Eminem's Relapse inches closer to two million, falling to #76. Having just signed Lil Twist, a featured artist on the We Are Young Money compilation, Young Money fast approaches 400,000 units.

DJ Khaled's Victory fell 23 more spots, slowing the momentum of the respectable debut week sales. The release remains short of 40,000 units sold upon hitting shelves. 50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct fell just two spots, after losing plenty of ground in the last two weeks. The rapper, believed to be departing from his Interscope Records family, is at work on Black Magic and directing a video for Tony Yayo's "Obama."

A popular story from last week is still ongoing. Suburban Boston rapper Sam Adams released his debut EP Boston's Boy, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rap charts. The digital album, released through 1st Round Records, shocked the local community as the relatively unknown college-aged emcee shocked the charts. Reports arose that Adams and his label had purchased the units themselves, but those reports have been vehemently denied.

    lookin at album sales is depressing nowdays. plus the fag niggas actually like to fight over who selling more copies, like its filling their pockets, fuckin lames. they need to change the plaque system. 500 thou is more like plat, or even double plat in 2010. sade sold all them copies cuz her fanbase got respect for her music. too many hip hop fans dling every release just to hate on it these days. fag ass niggas, put your money where yo mouth is. but you fag niggas comparing album sales fighting over a niggas units are broke bums anyway, so yall already LOST.

  • nofree

    no freeway. need to see more from him

  • Benny Blanco from the bridge

    Sam Adams didn't have underground buzz because He's not an underground rapper. He's a kid who has done a Great job of capturing his target Market, which is College kids, and College Girls. While His style isn't what I'm into I respect his hustle. He isn't a bad rapper, and Doesn't try to portray himself as anything He's not, He doesn't rap about being tough he raps about being a college student and partying, and his target audience loves it. I personally know him, He grew up in Cambridge across the street from my elementary school, and I heard people at my college talking about him before I knew he was rapping or blowing up. so he did have hype on college campuses across the country. He isn't really a hip-hop artist, He's more pop, and He's def better than Asher Roth

    • YungRich

      Cept that dude talks like he's from an urban black community when he's a suburban white boy. I don't mind white people in hip hop but why is this dude trying to talk like he grew up in a predominantly black community when he didn't and I know he doesn't talk like this in front of his parents. Eminem is from a part of Detroit where it is 99% black so I get why he talks like that, what's this dude's excuse? College music, sure I like it for what it's worth but not when this dude is trying to act like he's not a rich white kid.

    • nah

      the kid is only known cuz he faked thousands of album sales by buying them himself. it was a stunt

  • Sam Adams is a fraud

    for real, look at the comments on the first page about this kid on DX. It's firmly established that no one anywhere near the Boston area has ever heard of this kid until now. No underground buzz, no radio, no mixtapes, nothing. He was 100% unheard of. I'm also a Boston dude who keeps his ear to the underground. Never heard of him. Quite a business scam this kid has pulled. And, if he is in fact from Wayland then let me give you a mental image of Wayland. It's a LOADED suburb 30 minutes out from the city where you can't see most of the McMansions because they're driveways go a quarter mile into the woods. Part of me thinks this scam is funny, but more of me finds this kid annoying cuz it's just another douchebag misrepresentin Boston

  • coolcat72

    I dont like that idea of slaughterhouse signing with shady at all. I think they gonna try to change the sound and concepts to try to sell more records and fuck the shit all up. Im not buying that shit. I like slaughterhouse but i think them signing to a major label is gonna send them in a try to get more fan base more commercialized not feelin that. Man I do not understand why motherfuckers keep talking about how nice Lil Wayne is that Niggaz is super garbage. Somebody gave me any of his cds for free i would throw that shit against the wall!

    • bil board

      i feel u on slautherhouse not signing to shady.but i think if they sign to shady,dey wouldtn really change much lyrically.cos eminem too is supa lyrical.and dey need some beats from shady as well.lil wayne is kind of lyrical too,to some extent.sometimes he do fucks up to.with dat singing shit.da codeiene syrup is 4ucking him up baaadly.hola at ur boy cool cat

  • HIP HOP IS ON LIFE SUPPORT

    @C-Arson Hip Hop heads agree, as do I, best album he ever made. @Tha Carter 4 fam please fall back, idk where ur get'n ur info from but ur way off, check the RIAA my g. Everything is gold except for, The Block is Hot and Tha Carter 2 which are platinum, and 3 which is triple. Rebirth is not Gold yet, but approaching. And ez with the women lie men lie, can we please remove Hov's sack from the throat, pause for everyone that needed that. I'm just say'n, I'm in the business, I look @ these #'s just to laugh, and that's @ the labels. They really have people fooled, I mean back in the day, people used to buy albums, but everyone knows it's not the same. Come on, Black Eyed Peas album is tough, a lot of club bangers, but u really think people are out buying that many albums every week, if you believe that then you believe Wayne wrote Tha Carter 2, shouts to Gillie. That's another subject, but it's the machine Universal is the biggest label, which houses Interscope, so you think they gonn' let 50, Em, BEP, Wayne, Hov, and these big artist look like they not push'n #'s? Stop, Platinum is failing to some of those artists that are used to 6,7,8 mill, that's why you see a huge #. 50 brought this on himself, this will be his worst selling album of all time, he heard about the buzz and what his fans thought, "It's actually good", and he said, "Of course it is stupid!" This was before the album dropped, so what you think the fans did? Plus he shoulda never talked about all those credited greats that can body him lyrically, Nas, Jada, Fat Joe, and let's not forget The Game. Don't get it twisted I liked BISD, it reminded me of ol' Fif. But yeah I can go on about this for hours, support that real HIP HOP, that stuff that's say'n someth'n, Wale, Slaughterhouse, KiD CuDi, Freeway & Jake One, some of the last albums I copped, and I wasn't mad @ all. Wait'n on (and will cop) Meth, Ghost, & Rae - Wu Massacre, Reflection Eternal (Talib & Hi Tek) - Revolutions Per Minute, Budden - The Great Escape, Lupe - Lazers, Joell Ortiz - Free Agent, B.O.B. - The Adventures of Bobby Ray, can't front I wanna see what Drake is gonna be talk'n bout. Real Talk

  • Thabomb1

    i think Dj "we the best" deserve more.... sells and Luda.. itz game ova 4 u... south artist that cant sell... back in tha dayz u were the man, but TI took your spot... even Young Joc would sell more than u. BTW i'm waiting NAS album.... Holland in this Bitch!!

  • CAN'T....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    @ HRCMS................Royce got lyrics but he doesn't have that "IT" factor and that goes for the whole Slaughterhouse group...........If they signed wit Shady and do records with Eminem they would then be interesting..............Joe Buddens is the star of the group but Royce is the beast............Sadly to say Royce will mostly be remember as that guy that was spittin neck-n-neck with Eminem on "Bad Meets Evil"................That was Royce best chance to blow but he didn't catch his own wave.......... Royce has great bars but he's irrelevant he dont make ground music and he's not marketable..............

    • bow

      no one give a flying fuck about them there a bunch of nobodys they might have skills but if they drop a album who the fuck is gonna buy it...really? and who the hell is gonna go to a show to see Slaughterhous outside the northern regon? wakaflocka might be wack but he does shows Slaughterhouse cant even fuck wit Travis Porter as far as doing shows and getin money and havin hella fans

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

      @ C-ARSON................If Slaughterhouse signs with Shady and dont collaborate with him then whats the point on signing with Shady???????? I would get their album if they would sign cause I rep Shady to the fullest............... @ Billboard..............U may not care how big Slaughterhouse buzz but u one of only 10k of fans feel the way u feel..........

    • bil board

      ah yo duke boy.i dont give a fuck if dey sign to shady or ride on eminems dick.look slaughter house izzzzzz da shiznit.lyrically insane.dats all i give a fuck about.fuck sales.i aint sure b4 dey formed d group dey thought about sales booy.and i just listen to a song on eminems first lp.the slimshady lp.bad meets evil.da shit is fire.

    • C-Arson

      the trick these days isn't to make a hit but how to get lots of people to listen to it again. Duke would you buy a slaughterhouse cd if it was released on Shady but Slim didn't produce or spit on it? just wondering.

    • HRCMS

      Damn Duke, I didnt know you was up on Bad Meets Evil, I agree, that was his time to blow, but him and Em fell out,right after that and Royce went indie and underground, Royce can spit, but the question has always been can he make a commercial or radio single, I think Em and Shady could make that happen

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

      U thought wrong

    • C-Arson

      I thought "Shake This" was a hit hiphop record.

  • c red

      how dare you use Jigga's line bruh.. when Weezy has his record sale numbers consistanly than drop that mess... until then.... good job Weezy..

    • C-Arson

      tha block is hot came out in '98 right? Tha Carter 2 def his best album.

  • Blouh

    Smh @ Rebirth still selling. Why would anyone want to have that record, whether they're a rock or rap fan? :/

  • C-Arson

    BISD is an average album. Not bad, not great. Rebirth straight sucks ass. neither are flops. Ludacris went with a different demographic this time, I know it isn't for me. Dj Khaled, I still can't believe he has sold 40k, that cats pitiful it almost makes my heart hurt. I hear a lot of complaints about Relapse but I enjoyed the shit out of that album, WAY better then his last. Between Rebirth and YM albums, they got almost 1 million sales but they still get they ass beat by the other pop group BEP's. I ain't rockin it but that shit is serious. Has any artist outside of hiphop sold more then them?

    • C4C4

      rebirth is good i fucks wit it but its not for everybody its not hiphop

    • C-Arson

      @BFGN9 NO! No Rebirth is not good. not good at all. It's bad, bad as in not good.

    • unh

      Rebirth is WHAAAAAT???!! u jst sayin' sh8 like d@ 2 fuck wit us bt on 2nd thoughts, if no1 didn't like it, the #s wldn't be d@ high...I mean u go 2 a record store, u c the YM album nx a Slaughterhouse 'n u have 2 nerves 2 pick up d@ YM, I wish erv'body like d@ burns in eternal flames 4 their ignorance & insolence,,,

    • JasonCTown

      Yes. Those country bumpkins sell a shit ton of records. Then again, the majority of country fans prob dont know how to steal music.

  • WHOSHOTCAM

    This is the third week in a row DX has written an article and left out Jay-Z on your chart below the article. Is there a reason for this? He's album is still doing major numbers considering it came out in september. why would you have him in the text but not on the chart/spreadsheet. Makes no sense to me.

      Umm... he did a ROCK album, that he said himself his regular fans probably wouldn't get, that he did not because he expected it to sell units, but because he likes Rock music and wanted to experiment, without spending much to promote it, and with the artist himself incarcerated and unable to properly promote it either... ... And it's STILL poised to go Gold, In what Universe is that considered a flop?

Wayne's record crossed over into HELLA genres & he had @ least ONE dope song/single in each on the album & if your a lil wayne dick rider it prolly had WAY more where as 50's was just GANGSTA w/ 1 club track (BABY BY ME) the other radio type joints was on some PIMP/BOSS sh*t (Coulda Been You, Do You Think About Me).

      @BOAW! BOW! I CANT FUCK WIT A NIGGA (JAY-Z)THAT DOESNT BELIEVE JESUS DIED FOR HIS SINS! ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The same Jesus that was used to break you & enslave you, dumb ass field nigga.

      Jay-z is a cool artist but he is NOT the king of sales not even by a long shot. Eminem has always and will always hold this title. Eminem can get to number 1 everywhere in the world. His sales speak for themselves. No other hip-hop act can.

    • Orogammmi

      Jay-Z doesn't pray to God he prays to Gotti and yet he nicknamed himself Hov.

    • hiphopdaflop

      ya lets all be real here, 50 flopped no matter how you look at it. for a normal artist who doesnt have the commercial backing and the brand name of gunit behind them, 420 k would be not too bad... not that great either. jay z is definitely the king of nyc and probably will stay the king for the next 20 years. 50 and gunit lost lil wayne even sold more with his mack rebirth cd... smh

  • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

Just think if 50 went platinum we would have to kill ourselves! im sure we all we b able to get money now since 50 is only a gold artist....All of the prayers have been answered...we worked so hard to spread the hate and make sure he flopped and it worked! thank u Jesus for the decline in 50 sales! the world is perfect again! lmao

    • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

    • CHI_TOWN

      @ Bonney Bitch, im refering to your blog earlier today the very one weve been replying to, you caught feelings about someone commenting on 50's sales, proving yourself to be a sensative little bitch, not your fan, but like I said im calling out all the faggot shit you do, that would make your mother not proud, get a new hobby,cause being 50's dickriding stan aint going to get you to far, I dont hate 50, but I damn sho dont love no rapper the way you do to where i would catch feeling when someone did dis him,

    • bonney007

      for the first time we can agree on somethin...this is the internet and thats y u got all that pussybitchmuthafuckadick talk (sorry typing) my first blog since u r a fan said i never went to a website lookin for rappers i hate and blog on them....i dont listen to lil wayne and i think the people that come up here every week to hate on his sales are gay the same with people like u who hate 50. i never write on anyone's hate blog i state my piece and go and u hop on my dick like a lil bitch and wanna go tit for tat....cyber goon

    • CHI_TOWN

      @ Bonney Bitch, not on no tough shit, just stating the fact that you a groupie ass 50 cent dick riding little bitch, look at your 1rst blog, the fact that someone has a negative opinion on 50 your panties get pulled in a bunch, thats gay dog, and me calling you out on it aint me trying to be tough, so kill that noise and all that other shit about if we was in the same building, this the internet fuck boy, all im saying is get 50's dick out your mouth and be a man, if someone is hating on 50, it shouldnt hurt your feelings you sensative bitch made motherfucker

    • bonney007

      daaamn that was the toughest shit i read all day....u r a tru cyber goon! and a big hyporcrite...u have more 50 blogs than a nigga on thisis50.com! i jus say haters are gay and u been wantin to cyber beef ever since....grow up. i dont ride no dicks muthafucka...like i said u type a tough one but if we were in the same building u would b coppin pleas.....fag

    • CHI_TOWN@

      @ Bonney Bitch, this is the internet, how the fuck am I going to see you, get real you little pussy, you talking about real niggas, check yourself for not being one, real niggas dont dickride, and be obsessed with a male rapper, all your blogs are 50 cent related, thats gay groupie shit, im just calling it like I see it, stop being a little bitch, and I wont call you out, and in terms of eating a dick, i will prefer your mother to eat mine, while you keep eating 50's

    • bonney007

      im gonna keep it short and sweet.....eat a dick. u dont know me and the one and only reason u get on here and type tough is cuz u wont see nobody! real niggas dont talk ( or type in your case) i made 5 comments this year...u made 100+ and all of them were hate blogs....get a life or see a nigga for real

    • CHI_TOWN

      @ Booney Bitch not only do i reconize the scent of pussy, but I reconize the scent of a rotten pussy like you and your mothers, and yes im black, but no internet thug, just calling out bitch ass stans like you that dickride rappers, nobody on the site is fixated on one rapper like you are with 50 cent, its not about hating,its about teaching you to stand up and be a man,and stop dick riding like a bitch, im sure by your actions you didnt grow up with a man in the house, thats why you have these girly, bitchy, gay ass tendacies, and no fuck boy im not 16, im old enough that you should listen and learn

    • bonney007

      u r the real fag with a fix.....i read u on here months b4 my first comment and u had some tough shit for anyone who didnt have the same hate u got....u must Black child or somethin! lol u fag ass nigga u must have missed the comment when i said the lil wayne hate was gay also...i said hate blogs were for fags and u got mad! you dont have shit goin for yourself i can see...and im sure u dont get no pussy to even recognize the scent! lol u internet thugs are crazy out here...what r u 16?

    • CHI_TOWN

      @ Bonney Bitch your obsessed with 50, dont try to twist it around, every week your waiting in heat like a bitch to talk about 50, last week you said you know who, but we knew your fagget ass was talking about 50, im no cyber thug, nor a thug at all, but I know when I smell pussy, and you wreak of it, no real man would dickride like that, find a new artist, change your blog,discuss it with your girl, if you have one and Im sure she will agree, its something is wrong and gay about your fixation with 50

    • bonney007

      @chi- town u are weird.....u talk about me but i see u up here every week with a negative comment for anyone who doesnt agree with u thinkin that 50 is wack...get off of my dick cuz im a grown man and u will never say any of that tough cyber talk to me cuz i would crush u! real talk! @imfromdasouth if u want a discussion like men about this rap shit we can have that.....50 is no Pac you are right about that but what rapper dont want the love pac got? i think he is a dope rapper who the people took too personal when they hear the things that he says...its jus entertainment and i would much rather hear so disrespectful or strong enough or any of his music than listen to bedrock or the new boyz or lemonade. some people prefer the tight jean music and thats cool but i honestly think 50 music never got any worse or better...its always been good

    • CHI_TOWN

      Bonney, you sound like a real bitch ass groupie, every week looking forward to comments about 50, get 50's dick out of your mouth and out of your ass, you homo, groupie, stan ass bitch, every week you on the same 50 cent shit, your real obvious, and the whole site see's what a bitch you are

    • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

      Man we talkn bout 50, not who the worse rapper is!! The worse rapper is the nigga blogging about who the worse rapper cause he aint have what it takes to even get that recognition in the rap game!! Face it dude, the shit he putting out now aint bout shit!! Criticize Ja Rule for singing, now he doing it!! How he go from GRODT to this. That shit is unacceptable in the rap game!! Talkn bout he want them to love him like they love PAC, shit he can cancel that!! Pac aint neva fall off, he only got betta!!

    • bonney007

      thats were i disagree....with all of the music out right now can u honestly say 50 is the worst? the most hated man on earth..yea but the worst rapper...hell no

    • ImFromDaSouth 239/404

      The shit he put out mad him flop!! Maybe he should've put out a Pimpn Curly Dvd, now that shit will sale, cause that was funny!!

    • MurdahG

      but it wasnt a rap album, he sang, different audience, i live in Detroit and nobody i know bought this album.

    • s0l0

      NOT simple minded. if u think wayne is wack your simple minded cause you dont understand his lyrics.

    • Anon1

      Maybe you think he's the best, and that's cool, but to back that argument up with sales? How can you be taken seriously. They're both pretty whack mainstream artists who used to be gritty and hot and then flopped to the mainstream.

    • MYLIE

      if you call wayne the greatest your an ignorant bitch. i hate simple minded people.

  • Ace 54632656

    • officer ricky

      50 is likely to sell more than Luda album so how can it be a flop. Its a flop 4 50 standards but he is doin more or equal numbas 2 relevant rappers in the game such as Rick Ross Ludacris Snoop Dogg Timberland Gucci mane

    • DJ_teC
