Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 7/25/2010

Rick Ross and Eminem battle for the #1 spot, but who gets it? Usher climbs nine spots, and The Roots crack the 100,000 mark.

Eminem's Recovery just will not budge from #1. Rick Ross gave Slim Shady a run for the money however. The Miami rapper debuted at #2 with the praised Teflon Don release. Scanning just under 177,000 units, the Def Jam rapper's fourth official album features work from veterans such as No I.D., DJ Clark Kent and Cee-Lo. Drake's Thank Me Later fell to #4, as Sheryl Crow's latest album debuted at #3. The Toronto rapper still motions towards its million-mark.

 

Usher's Raymond v. Raymond climbed an impressive nine spots. The veteran Pop entertainer's "divorce album" is marching its way to a platinum plaque for Mr. Raymond and his longtime backer, LaFace Records. The album will feature two deluxe/additional material releases next month. Outkast's Big Boi bumped one spot to #15. The Atlanta Hip Hop pioneer is 10,000+ units shy of the six-figure mark with his critically-acclaimed Def Jam debut, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty. The release features artists such as T.I., Gucci Mane and Too Short, with production from Organized Noize, Scott Storch and Lil Jon.

    Johnny 5. Where the fuck are you. Please come back. p.s. bring your buddy Dusty too please.

  • Nico 3

    The problem for Ross is everything rides on that first week. If he could have outsold Em, then the people who didn't buy his album would have seen that he had claimed the top spot and would have went out and got Teflon Don. While a #2 finish is far from bad, it's never what a label or studio wants. They need to re-coup major money, so it's either #1 or find another label for the next one.

    Dude i fuck with eminem but im getting tired of him crying about his past life. He cant even smile no more like WTF is wrong with him ??

  • Mr Mogul

    There are some real ignorant people on here.. Rather than hate on Ross why don't you try to reach his level of success. Instead of sitting home bloggin about how much you hate him because he has more $$ than you. Males shouldn't be jealous that's a female trait....

    • KING ME

      Sensative thugs all need hugs lol, who cares rap is entertainment so while yall hold on to your "so real" status dudes is getting money. Most of these rappers are homo anyway, but money talks b.s. walks, and I doubt you making millions a year Dog, and only petty dudes steal sneakers, get a *uckin job, bum ass dudes, hating is a female trait, On wit Ross his music represents his passion for the game real or fake it's still good music. Why hate a man trying to better himself, he's not stepping on anyone toes but his own, so while he gettting money yall worried bout his history, just buy the bio Faagots never seen so many dudes gossip bout someone they never met, sounds real homo to me like a Beauty Shop, I know that's not how they do it Philly LoL, *uck outa here what a clown

Watch his next week fall of the charts while Emenem's n Drake's 10th weeks will still be on the charts! Defjam can't fool me stop buying records, this clowns untis trying to fool the people shawty!...The truth always comes to the light just like his past when he swore to od that he was never a C.O. and all them pictures was false and everybody was hating on him cuz he took over the streets...LMAO!!!

  • John-Boy

    I don't know where people are getting their numbers from but if you go to Billboards official website you will see that Em outsold Ross. And let me also say that Billboard is way more credible when it comes to album sales than any hiphop website Ross stans will try and come up with. HiphopDx is not wrong about the sales like some of you have been saying. And another thing, fans of Officer Rossifer were actually excited when they "thought" he outsold Em by a few thousand copies. Its Recovery's fifth week on the market so if he had outsold Em it would have been nothing to brag about. Now Ross fans can cry knowing the truth, and that is that their C.O. buddy couldnt beat an album thats been out for over a month. HaHa. Oh, and Teflon Don is quite garbage. PEACE!!!!!!

  • babby

    all hiphop .com has posted ross as selling 188 and debuting at number 1. i'm getting a bit confused. but whether its 177k 0r 188k both would be more than his first week for deeper than rap 160k i think you have got to give him some credit dispite all the bullshit all the hate, 50 trying to end him like he did to a few other rappers.there are rappers out there with street cred that streches across three or four states and they long for the day that they can sell 180k in there first month not to mention first week

  • nico hellal

    Relapse album?

  • nico hellal

    And Relapse Album Sales???

  • imeafk

    Great job eminem. now do it 6 weeks and let fat joe rick ross drake under you...

  • Nate12

    RECOVERYYYYYYY!!!!!!

  • Whateva

    Ross and Drake have the best albums (mainstream) going so far this year. Eminem's album forgettable but yawl rep it like it's a great stuff. List one song on Recovery that's hot. Not Afraid, Back Down, WTP??, and songs I can't even remember are WACK as FUCK!

    • O.M.F.G

      @ whateva u jus named da bad song onda album lol da other 14 are hot drakes fallin off look at da numbers when u speak on forgetting n ross is getter bigger simply frm bein wit diddy (he was alrdy big but yea) eminem makes music dat most of us can related too wat do ross n drake tlk bout dat we can relate to huh? ill wait da average person can relate to: seduction space bound not afraid going thru changes love the way u lie wont back down was da worst song on there on eminems standards but it was better than most songs ive heard mainstream ona lyrical level

    • Flawl3$$

      Those may be some of the low points of the album but it also has some classic shit on their. Songs like Cold Wind Blows, 25 to life, space bound, Almost famous, thats classic eminem right their! Album is really just missing 1 or 2 great tracks in place of a lower track from being deemed a Classic.

  • HHFAN

    F*ck sales....DISTANT RELATIVES is album of the year. I'm not one of those people that say they only listen to underground. I like commercial rap especially in the clubs but this album made me think and change my whole prespective on alot of things. That video is cool too. The artist that Nas & Damian sampled that got to appear on stage with them probably never imagined being infront of an international crowd that large. Imagine that moment...

  • The-Influence

    Wow... That is a B-R-I-C-K for Rick Ross. And I don't wanna hear, "well in this day and age, 176,000 in the first week is good." Definitely not.. You have to realize the amount of money that was spent on promotion and marketing and videos for this project. Def Jam handled his album like it was Jay-Z in the late 90's, or any project back then. So for dude to sell under 200,000 is a big FAIL. The public isn't as dumb as many think they are. Everyone knows Ross is a fraud and far from a real emcee. On to the next one........................................

    • Flawl3$$

      over 500,000 haha that's a long shot this albums second week sells will be around 50k. it will be lucky to hit 400,000

    • dev

      The Album only had two low budget videos with 11 songs and had alot of cheap Producers (Excluding Kanye & No I.D) the album most likely is selling ova 500k

    • Epitome

      Rick Ross was not promoted like he was the jay of the late 90's. His promotion was about an average amount, also most music video's now a days are usually shot with dslr camera's which are good for video's and also inexpensive. Labels don't go around handing out million dollar budgets anymore, that why you hardly ever see albums anymore featuring production from neptunes swizz beats dre and kanye west all on the same album. Now a days you might find maybe one beat from the big dollar producers. so 177,000 thousand units is a good amount, specially considering that there have only been about 6 or 7 albums this year to even sell over the 200,000 mark, if that.

  • The.Watcher

    I am thrilled at the #s of Roots and Nas - it's great to see real hip hop doing so well. As for everything else - meh.

  • ishawn

    lets' see last album he sold 150k opening numbers , the one before that 169k and on this one 177k ... that's sad ...with 11 features he only did a 27k increase ...didn't even hit that 200k mark ...lol ross is done , and for everyone saying he making good music , i guess only 177 thousand of you think so ...lol

    • ishawn

      Nasty pee , for real i think you write with out thinking at times ...177k opening numbers isn't a good look for ross especially with all the bullshit talk he does in his interviews , acting like he's the shit ... ..out of that 177k don't forget def jam brought some of the albums them selves ..an album that has that many dammn features should have past that 200k mark ....sorry but ross is done, put a fork in him

    • dev

      those are first weeks sales in case you havent noticed

    • JGrizzlie

      heard the whole album n i have to say it was jus ok....not worth my $10 plus tha spitta still in heavy rotation in my whip, 16k they say but what about digital sales?

    • Na$ty Pee

      when half the hip hop community holds a job u had over 10 years ago against u and all the 50 Cent stans he gotta deal with...177,000 is a great #...imagine where his sales would be without the C.O. situation tho...

    That Nas & Damian Marley video gives me chills

  • SutterKane

    Congrats to Rick I guess, never fucked with his music but its nice to see any kind of Hip Hop do some numbers these days, so I wont start crying because these particular numbers came from an artist I dislike. Em keeps winning while haters keep crying, buisness as usual over there I figured Drake would be platinum by now *Kanye Shrug* Big Boi needs to find Andre 3K fast and make another Outkast album, with numbers like those he probably aint even make back the budget it cost to make it........ Dope CD tho, people have no taste anymore Everybody else on that list is just not worth mentioning, those numbers are so sad its not funny, better kiss the wife and kids goodbye and plan on a 300 day a year tour schedule,lol. Thank god I have a real job, everytime I go online I see a new story on how some rapper owes 100's of Thousands in taxes, then I come here and see the record sale numbers and it finally adds up. If thats the best you can sell be independant.

    • ReadUp

      From Billboard.com Eminem makes it five weeks in a row at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as "Recovery" sells another 187,000 (down just 4%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. Rick Ross' "Teflon Don" arrives in the runner-up spot with 176,000. Ross' last three studio albums all debuted at No. 1, with his last set, 2009's "Deeper Than Rap," arriving with 158,000. The opener for "Teflon" is Ross' best sales week since 2008's "Trilla" arrived with 198,000.

    • Gaz

      Yea sure it did. And Ross is a drug king-pin and was never a CO!

  • BAWSE2ULOOKOUTS

    dis fool below me is a hater!! ROSS GONNA GO GOLD AGAIN 4GOLD ALBUMS SOUNDS SUCCESSFUL 2ME!! HOW MANY CD'S CAN YAYO SELL NOW?? LMAO

    • JGrizzlie

      yeah non of ross ppl mach up to any of 50 ppl except masspike miles...he better than everyone but buck, i know he sing/rap but he is on ross label so he still count lol

    • chocboy

      How you compare ross to yayo...i thought he was the leader of his click. how about you compare gunplay, or one of them other bums from triple cheese to yayo or banks, i bet they won't match up

  • PAPA GUNZ AKA MR FUCK HIP HOP

    i like rick ross music but the bottom line is he could never touch the numbers of 50 sells even in his worst sells... bisd sold way more then that in the first week lol

  • fcvs

    rick ross has to drop probably more 3 cds to reach beg for mercy sales (not to mention other cds from the unit) so what? you wanna compare him to the unit? he is not even platinum.. Yayo dropped his cd and sold 800K in 2005 and ross dropped Trilla (his best selling cd) and sold 750K in 2006.. both were pre-recession so no excuses.. ross ain't shit facts don't lie

    • Epitome

      actually tony yayo's album topped out around 520,000 or something around the low 500,000 unit mark. So your point is invalid with incorrect numbers.

  • CANT....BAN......DUKE....... BOY

    who actually bought Ricky So-Gay album????

      Billboard.com Eminem makes it five weeks in a row at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 as "Recovery" sells another 187,000 (down just 4%), according to Nielsen SoundScan. Rick Ross' "Teflon Don" arrives in the runner-up spot with 176,000. Ross' last three studio albums all debuted at No. 1, with his last set, 2009's "Deeper Than Rap," arriving with 158,000. The opener for "Teflon" is Ross' best sales week since 2008's "Trilla" arrived with 198,000.

    • John-Boy

      @ JASONCTOWN..........Get off the legend 50 Cent dick......

    • JasonCTown

      You have proof of this?? Proof of him chaining and whipping and whatever else you claim?? If so, bring it forward. There is also 'proof' that your 'real' street nigga 50 was clamoring with the cops, right??

  • kpanilaryea

    lets be honest people who really give a fuck about record sales anyway? we all know just bc u sell a mil dont mean shyt in hip hop its what the streets think. the streets is what gives credibility in hip hop. nowadays this is a white mans art, he done bought hip hop out and sold it out to these dumbasses! it has become bafoonery and they are indirectly makin fun of us blacks. songs like show out and prettyboyswag are popular but also remind me of a minstrel show or that old show amos and andy when they had black folk makin fun of other black folk subliminally. i think eventually people will realize that this shyt is not good for us and will raise the bar once again for the standards of rap. until then i aint gonna hold my breath! lol

    • just sayin

      you can have an opinion, but i dont see how you can talk about blacks being made fun of and you cant even speak proper english. but then again, it could just be cuz your typing it up. anyway, lets look at this situation, you can assume youre a big hip-hop fan, so when that new souljaboy drops, are you going to buy it, just because its being marketed, and is a widely known release, or would you, like you are here, check out other blog sites, see who's new, check out other hip-hop artists or albums. labels will push what they think will sell. nobody will push an album they think everyone will download. people are tired of hearing stuff about the streets, its not a new concept anymore. and also, your saying blacks being made fun of, but, your upset because music about bitches, and fucking bitches, and drugs isnt pushed as heavily as some chill type of party song. first of all, why do black people even have to be represented that way? we're demeaning ourselves by putting that type of stereotype on ourselves. i listen to some rap, i got t.i. and em, but i got some rock, r&b and all types of shit. in this situation, theres two types of people, theres the people rapping about the streets, and live in mansions. and then theres the people who listen to people rap about the streets, and live in the streets, mid to low class. so, where do you think you fit in that?

    • Heat-357

      Would u shut up already.... lol... I don't mean to be rude but when u click on an article about record sales you shouldprobably blog about record sales... if u want to talk racial bariers in music then plz take it somewhere else... thank you..

  • lay

    Estimated 1st week sales. For what its worth, IMO Kanye West - 300,000 Lupe - 50,000 Game - 65,000 Ice Cube - 20,000 Fat Joe - 15,000

    • disconnectedxxx

      white people dont buy anything but eminem & jayz

    • Shiftynick212

      @BILL87 "white people" buy Kanyes albums???? How ignorant can a person get....smh

    • Bill87

      I don't disagree with you but this is a dam shame. Lupe Fiasco should be going Platinum with every album. Plus, I think Kanye will be a bit more. White people buy Kanyes albums.

  • OG T-BONE

  • foodstamp313

    Em's only down 4% from last week, that means that word of mouth is strong. He's getting back the people who were hesitant to spend money that he lost over his last 2 albums with the, Nah for real, you gotta go pick this up crowd

    • YOUNG LOU

      The more I listen to it the better it gets

    • CaliforniaLove

      Yeah man that's true as fuck...I went and picked it up the day it came out but I had to convince a couple of my homies that it was a dope ass album and that they needed to pick it up.

  • dmfslimm

    wait til yall hear that new fat joe. hardbody muzik.

  • sublimenirvana

    it's a damn shame officer ricky is doing better numbers than big boi. What happened to all the kast fans man, that cd was perfect for the summer

  • roger that

    i think the recovery is over rated ross has a good cd out. we need to start supporting black artist.

    • O.M.F.G

      @ Roger That w/e happened to keepin it real? lol home boy officer ricky? fuck Teflon Don takin freeway rick ross name n namin his cd afta wat they called gotti n da son of a bitch was a C.O...support black artist? im black... eminem crossed over pac crossed over wayne crossed over 50 at his prime crossed over so did jay Ross is FAKE eminem actually raps bout shit he went thru and some we can related to but dis nigga rawse rappin bout movin weight n black flags fuck outta here wit dat shit he oughtta b like lupe, kanye n drake make gud music and not lie n try n copy a lifestyle he never experienced

    • O.M.F.G

      @ Em fan #1 1st off its not black ppl its called da ghetto come to jersey we got camden (full of ricans, mexicans n blacks also former murder capital aka 1 of da poorest cities in da USA) and Gloucester City (WHITE FUCKIN TRASH and every bitch is smutted to da fullest) 2nd everybody has diff problems it aint bout race dumb ass ikno ppl white and black who dont have dads and or moms or sell drugs 3rd pac, big, 50, jay all did numbers .....and pacs shit ppl can relate to nigga get ur knowledge up boy and ima big eminem fan too

    • YOUNG LOU

      I agree wit foodstamp about supporting real artists and I totally disagree wit EMFAN#1. Blacks have plenty of parental issues. go to foster homes, homeless shelters and jails and prisons and even current students and ask them their #1 problem they had/have growing up. Get back at me after u do

    • JoSir

      "i think the recovery is over rated ross has a good cd out. we need to start supporting black artist." CORRECTION we need to start supporting good artists you fucking idiot.....you probably downloaded that shit yourself you fucking dick taker

    • Em fan #1

      until a black artist actually relates to the white majority it won't happen. Let's be real how many black people have an issue with their parents (well momma at least)? Black people are more about the number of people they fucked not being vulnerable in relationships.

    • foodstamp313

      Nah, how about supporting real artists. Please tell me you think "Teflon Don" spitting about money, hoes, and sellin' drugs is better than Recovery.

  • c red

    somebody has there numbers wrong they will prob do a recount like thay did with game and slipnot either way they both are doin there thing

  • Toppdogg908

    This must be killing 50 inside knowing that Teflon Don outsold BISD first week numbers, he sure picked a good time to stop dissing LOLOLOL

  • REAL...HIPHOP....

    DISTANT RELATIVES IS NOT AT LEAST GOLD. THESE NUMBERS CAN NOT BE RIGHT. THE BEST ALBUM OF THE DECADE. EVERY PERSON SHOULD HAVE THIS ALBUM IT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER. IT SHOULD WIN OVERALL BEST ALBUM FOR THE YEAR BUT IT IS TOO REAL SO THE POWERS THAT BE WILL NOT LET IT BE HEARD. NAS THE BEST MC EVER HANDS DOWN.

  • Heat-357

    Wow what a surprise... def jam puts out more funny numbers... rick ross has no buzz what so ever right now and he's selling more than he did last year when he actually had a buzz..??..? Can we trust any of these industry cats anymose?..?. Haha fuck it its just entertainment...

  • arahf

    http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/news/newsPage.cgi?news08156 their telling the contraire there!

  • Torso

    I dought Joe Crack will enter a top 5. Where are Kelis numbers? Lol! Atleast Ricky tried, maybe someone at Def Jam should've purchased some albums or more of them to help first week sales. But Em hoging the top spot isnt much of a surprice.

  • mhunke

  • slim fela

    BIG BOI ALBUM IS DOPE I HOPE HE AT LEAST GO DIAMOND..AND TO THE RACIST COON UP TOP WHATS WRONG WIT PPL SAYIN EM IS THE BEST..U STUPID..JUST LIKE FAKE ROSS ALBUM

  • Swordz

    I serouisly think rap is for white people nowadays. I mean look at all these comments - people ACTUALLY feel like EM is the best rapper - they really like his music and his flow. Whilst real rappers like Nas sell 10th of that EM does....... 2010 is crazy. I think i'm going to reading this sales article every week - shit is real depressing!

    • NY

      I definitely agree with this I know people who buy it just because it has Eminem on it. I am white but I won't support that album because it's not good I haven't got one of his cd's since Eminem Show, he just feel off. I would much rather see The Roots, CNN, Nas & Damian Marley on top of the list. It's just majority of white don't know what's good rap. Most white people are responsible for how fucked up the rap game is because they think people like Lil Wayne & Drake are good so artists like them sell and good rappers don't. I agree that Eminem is a pop artists it's easy to tell with the guest appearances on the album (Pink, Rihanna, Lil Wayne). You can't make an assumption that all white people are like this. My top 5 dead or alive (GZA, Biggie, Raekwon, Guru, Nas)

    • HOLLAR AT ME

      Rap is for everybody, Em is an elite lyricist, he's not 1 dimensional, doesnt rap about money or cars, seduction on Recovery was a brilliant concept, Nas is fire also but his beat selections are a little sub par, and he can be a little to political, sometimes we just want to hear some good hip-hop with crazy metaphors, Em epitomizes that shit, I'm black however I share the opinion them Em is one of the best lyricist in the game

    • nice...

      the majority of the consumers for rap are white people, so of course they're gonna hold their boy down. ithink it's really starting they aboutto take hiphop from us. jus lik they did with rock and soul. (do your reseach) don't matter tho we jus gon bounce back wit some flyER shit anyway. NO DISRESPECT TO THE COOL WHITE PEOPLE, jus to you delusional white rascist that are in love black culture and wont admit it

    • nice and smoove

      sadly enough i agree. atlthough i am a eminem fan (as a emcee), eminem is more of a pop artist to me than the classic golden era standard emcee. em appeals to the same crowd that TRL use to have. i'm not a rick ross fan but TEFLON DON was a good album surprisingly. eminem brought hip hop to the suburbs and that can't be overlooked but shout out to him because he is a great emcee just not the best because he doesn't really rap about shit. IMO, Nas is the best rapper ever. P.S. Watch how many STANS will say i'm a hater when I just said I am a fan

  • jtn519

    ross is a big bum teflon don album sucked

  • drr4

    drake that whats up we getting that plaque fuck the haters lol now we love the haters it movitates us

    • JasonCTown

      Should they address the plaque to 'Drake and DRR4' or the other way around?? I mean, just want to clarify how that all works.

  • SHUTTAMAN

    all that marketing+features and just that? ROLF THATS A FLOSS FOR RICK ROSS BOOK. if that kind of promo def jam had, was the same for big boi, big boi would've sold a lot more, big boi is still making more paper off his album then ross dumb ass. BOI STOP!

  • StreetAcid

    Go Cop Pilot Talk

  • JOE6PACKNCGBOR336

    big boi album is just dope cant believe that many people brought ross shit and left big boi shit in the store whats really good. i wouldnt doubt if curren$y cd is better then ross shit king kong and audio dope they day FT JAY E better then any single ross drop off that album no need to mention big boi cause hes just killing shit on that album.....just sad

  • rensrock

    For all my true hip hop heads, check this cat right there from Bmore!! Free download! https://bmcrecords.sharefile.com/d/s3fa3130a8364525a And I'm not from his entourage!

  • stuntmoney

    well lol....looks like ross flopped i kno album sales arent what they use to be but man lol looks like it'll take a while for him to go gold and dats even if he makes it there lol.....so i dont see how people can say eoss killed 50's career cuz i do believe 50 did more than 100k correct lol.....

    • JOE6PACKNCGBOR336

      u know ross never did over 190k in the first week right so no flop buddy no fan here either just telling it like it is

  • miguel Guttierres

    Man, Eminem just won't move from that #1 spot. Rick Ross was headed his way for the top spot and Em was like, "Uh uh! This is my spot and I won't move until Billboard says so. You can have the #2 spot though." It's already been a month and a half for Drake and he's still not platinum yet. With all that hype behind him, he should've been platinum by now. Just sayin... Good to see Big Boi still in the top 20. The album is dope as hell but I still think Distant Relatives is holding the spot for best album of 2010 so far. I'm glad Nas and Damian are still on the charts at a reasonable position after two months despite mostly word-of-mouth promotion.

  • Di GeNiUs

    Oh shit!!!! Now Ross gonna get even more Cocky doing numbers like this: being mentioned next to the name of Lengendary Marshall... I see no hate here but I hope the Boss sells more than Drake shit... Let young money knows they aint the only fucking the rap hip hop whore ±

  • nice...

    if you like that gangsta shit get that cnn. it's better than ross's shit. didn't wanna write too much about this but damn. big boi, roots, cnn and the distant relatives joint. that's the joints i'm vouching for, buy some records damn it. and fuck drake all that big talk and hype and shit and em came and dusted your ass. you for the girls homie

  • H-DUB

    Damn, CNN f**** up big time. This Album is Dope! I´m just glad that Big Boi and The Roots don´t need to push big Numbers anymore. They on another Level anyway.....The People out there do not honor good Music anymore, and do not support the Artists. Come on Folks, CD´s on Amazon only cost 7,99 - 9,99 Bucks these Days.....

  • saurav

    Motherfucker...Em Killed 'Lawsie' and that too five weeks out....Was it really a surprise...FUck d cop!

  • HOLLAR AT ME

    I don't know if HHDX stats are correct they've been known to make errors, Hitsdaily.com had Ross @ #1 and Em @ #2 with a difference of less then a thousand units between the 2

    • HOLLAR AT ME

      Yea I figured they were estimates, its good to see Em posting good numbers after the 5th week of the release, feel like Recovery is the best album released since the Marshal Matters album, you can feel the hunger and lyrical dominance

    • kidz

      HDD numbers are just estimate, Soundscan numbers (Billboards) are official numbers.

  • kingmathersszzzzzz

    RECOVERY !!!

  • dilla rip

    i mean it aint that bad ...we got the roots, big boi,nas, a good rick ross and eminem album ...plus newcomers without much promotion like curren$$y sell their units...feels good just sayin
