Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 12/5/2010

Kanye West gets his gold, Soulja Boy and Slim Thug barely make the Top 80, Flo Rida misses the charts, and Black Eyed Peas aren't budging from the top of the charts.

Soulja Boy and Slim Thug crack the charts with lower numbers than many may have expected. Rick Ross teeters to gold, Nicki Minaj is right behind him, and Flo Rida misses the Top 200 altogether.

Kanye West went from #1 to #7 with his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Now officially gold, the album that was promoted through the revolutionary "G.O.O.D. Friday" leaks crossed the 600,000 unit mark. Praises continue to come in from publications and media about the emcee/producer's fifth album.

The work features Raekwon, Pusha T, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj. Recorded largely in Hawaii, the album features several themes that have garnered it critical praise.

The Black Eyed Peas actually took #6. The group's follow-up to last year's The E.N.D., titled The Beginning, sold nearly 119,000 units in its first week. The will.i.am-led group's sixth studio album continues their European club influence, maintaining work with David Guetta and DJ Ammo.

Potentially a week away from her first solo gold plaque, Nicki Minaj has held strong with her debut, Pink Friday. The Young Money album has sold just under 480,000 units in its two weeks available, as Minaj continues to do press appearances. Featuring both Nicki's brand of singing and rapping, Pink Friday features will.i.am, Drake and Eminem.

Minaj collaborator Rihanna watched her Loud fall just four places in its third week on shelves. With features from Drake, Eminem and the aforementioned Nicki Minaj, Loud continues to attract fans through its multiple singles and happier themes compared to RiRi's past albums.

Another Def Jam songstress, Jazmine Sullivan released her sophomore album, Love Me Back. Though the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native did use rapping on this album, she sought production from Nas' longtime producer Salaam Remi and Chicago Hip Hop legend No I.D.

Two southern releases both had difficult debuts on the charts.

Houston, Texas veteran Slim Thug's third album, Tha Thug Show debuted at #78. Released through E1 Entertainment, the Swishahouse rapper's third studio album features B.o.B., Big K.R.I.T., Yo Gotti and summer verbal sparring partner, Rick Ross. Thug's second album with the indie label follows a lot of success in last year's critically heralded Boss of All Bosses.

Despite being one of Interscope Records' flagship stars, Soulja Boy's third album, The DeAndre Way, struggled to make the Top 80. With appearances by 50 Cent and SB's artist Lil B The Based God (of The Pack), the album has shown some progression from the 2007 sensation's past work.

Lloyd Banks' third solo album, H.F.M. 2 (The Hunger For More 2) sold another 12,000 units this week. With a gold single and high-profile appearances from Kanye West, 50 Cent, Raekwon and Eminem (on the iTunes version), Banks' acclaimed comeback album passed the 50,000 mark.

Speaking of gold, Miami, Florida's Rick Ross sits less than 700 units away from a gold plaque for his critically-acclaimed fourth album, Teflon Don. The Def Jam album features work from Jay-Z, Kanye West and Cee Lo Green.

Wayne's former protege, Curren$y watched his second album of the year cross the 15,000 mark. Pilot Talk II, released on Damon Dash's imprint through Def Jam distribution, features Raekwon and Spitta's former No Limit label-mate Fiend.

    LOL Black Eyed Peas are so not going platinum anymore

    • Hmm

      They could, they just need a hit single or two. That's what kept their album going and going...and going for over a year. They just managed hit after hit. The people that buy Black Eyed Peas albums are women and most women don't download music illegally, they're too stupid to know any better. Hip-Hop albums don't have much of a shelf life, because in the true spirit of hip-hop, it's fans are anti-establishment and raise a middle finger to spending money on albums we can just get for free. A hip-hop album, good or bad, has usually been heard before it's even released. Who do you think pushes the sales of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake and other "rappers" who fit into the mold of popstar? It's women. It's always been women. That and little white kids. Why do you think 2Pac, Eminem and Jay-Z sold so much? They actually appealed to hip-hop fans and women. It was a win-win for the record companies.

  • Stupidpeople

    Nr1 yall talkin a bunch of bullshit yall know that!!!Lloyd banks album i bought it and its shit strat point dont arque i loved hfm 1 that was one of the best and rotten apple was good but this shit!!!hfm2 biggest bunch of shit ever 50 influenced him with sing sing money shit!!!!and yeah i bought it becase people wenton about it i bought it and wAit for it wait for it i stay in south africa so if one muthfffffffff gonna say it is indi again ima teach you to read you dumb shit its not indi!!!!!!!worst album i bought this year and the year be4 and b4 b4 b4 b4 b4 b4 must i really go on!!and stop sayin he is still rich wft that has to do with any thing???my fave rapper richer than yours uhhhmmmmmmm wtf!!!i supprt the best rapper not who has money!!!!you look at record sales you stupid fuc

  • Ndu Gumede

    i'm glad that a majority of the people are starting to realize that Souljaboy is garbage hence he's only sold 13000 units compare to the millions he sold when he firts came out. lets keep up peeps!

    • Hmm

      Once again, on the subject of women. How could anyone even think Soulja Boy would be succesful anymore? Teenage girls aren't blasting his shit anymore. That was the ONLY appeal this dude ever had.

    Lloyd Banks ahahhahahahahaha wheres all these homo thugs sayin he gonna sell 500k his first week GTFOH gunit is wack as hell there time been up they got there meal ticket 50s selfishness fuck up everything fuck 50 gunot. lol

  • BWS-Fish

    my side are aching from laughing at Lloyd Banks, and more specifically, at his faggit fans! For months you were tellin us THFM2 was gonna be massive. Some of you predicted 250,000 first week sales! and here we are TWO weeks in and he has just limped past 50,000 - FFFFFLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOPPPPPPP!!! In future, when ur a fan of shit rappers like that G-unot bitch banks, dont make ridiculous predictions about their sales because u look fuckin stupid.

    • Heat357

      Well I think its obvious that a lot of people still like them.... In the past 2 years G-Unit has sold over 2.5 million records world wide.... I know its not exactly Eminem numbers but its still more than fabulous, rakim, nas, fat joe, jadakiss, dipset, new boyz, cali swag district and I could probably list 200 more relivant rappers who g-unit still out sells.... Bottom line is people always wanna say rappers careers are over because they aren't selling as much as they used to... But its enevidable that a rappers sales will decrease as they get later in their careers... it doesn't mean fans have to throw them under the bus... As long as you still like their music then why would you stop listening to it??? 50 is one of my favorite current rappers... His albums have been weak lately but his mixtapes have been on fire...

    • BWS-Fish

      I say G-not because i still think that 50 cent has acted like a fag in many many many situations in the last 5 years, and im gonna keep saying it. G-unot fans just piss me off because they place such an exaggeration on the fan base that they think those 3 fags still have. Thoughts of a Predicate Felon = flop Curtis = garbage The Rotten Apple = flop Terminate on Sight = flop Before I Self Destruct = flop THFM2 = flop How many more albums do they have to flop with before their fans accept that its not 2003 or 2004 any more and G-unot is now over?? MOVE ON!!

    • Heat357

      Even 50 Cents worst enemies said 50 destroyed Rick Ross... 50 Cent is the Boss!!!

    • Rick Ross the Bawse

      LOL, I'm laughin at the nigga Banks floppin so bad. 50 and his crew always talkin bout record sales what they gonna say now bout Banks. Rozay, went at em and bodied all them niggas. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Heat357

      Noone says G-Unot anymore... Every time you say it your little peter will shrink 1/100 in. And remember to listen to beamer benz or bently when you drive past black people... One more thing..... I will smoke you in black ops..

    LOL how did Flo Rida manage to completely miss the charts?

  • Victor Cruz Perez

    If they're gonna put a number to an artist name, they ought to put how much they charge per show. Thats really where they get their money. Especially someone like Banks. Most people now days only buy albums from underground artist to show support or from mega stars they love like Em or Jay. Banks is kind of in a middle ground.

    • Rick Ross the Bawse

      LMAO at all these niggas tryin to make excuses for Banks floppin. What happened to HFM2 gonna sell 250,000 first week posted by yaall niggas. That shit went wood. Haha. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      no he flopped cause the music industry is absolute shit right now... look at kanye he only sold 100,000 this week and hits his second week!

    • BWS-Fish

      rofl at this way of explaining why Banks flopped. U Banks fags spent months tellin us all how he was gonna sell loads of records, and then when he flops, u start posting that record sales dont matter anyway. he's garbage. he's worse than 50. he's worse than buck he's worse than game he's marginally better than Gayo thats why he flopped.

  • con

    what cartoon is that in the vid just wondering?

  • ShowTime NY

    Everything is relative. If you were an artist and not an observer. You would be happy to sell 50,000 records in what the first week. Im working on an album right now and all I wanna sell is 1,000. That would be a great accomplishment. At ten a pop thats $10,000 . I think yall see Em numbers and try to compare..Stop it. Em is a white artist with a Cult Following. If You got the Hype Juice ure doing Kanye Nicki numbers that like 500-600 K. 600 K at 10 a pop grosses 6,000,000 Million 6 Mill in sales is what some ppl have called a flop. Thats what I mean shit is all relative. 100, 000 in sales at 10 a pop grosses a cool MILLION Havent people called that a flop too. A million dollas nigga-- are you serious.

    • Blue Flame Vet

      The average indepenedent artist get's about $3-$4 per CD. The most successful indie artist gets about $7/CD. Do your homework kiddo... Call 678-200-4362, to buy some more game!

    • anon

      You clearly have no idea about the numbers artists make. Let me break down that $10 to you; The record company takes back $1 for pressing of the CD. Whichever shop has sold the CD also takes a cut, typically around $4. This leaves $5, which if you're lucky you'll be getting 20% on, which ends up at $1 per sale. Discounting guys like Drake, who has an amazing record deal. Or guys like Jay-Z who is head of the record company, these artists are making $1 on sales Independent artists get more per release, but still may end up with only $2 per unit. Investigate your numbers a bit more carefully before stating that 10,000 sold equals $1 million.

    HERE IT IS FOLKS, ALL THE HORRIBLE HIP-HOP FANS IN ONE SPOT. HIPHOPDX IS THE PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE WORST HIP-HOP FANS GOING. HERE IS A LIST OF WHAT THESE MORONS THINK MATTERS IN HIP-HOP: 1. Is everyone else buying it 2. How many features are on the album 3. How many sales in the 1st week 4. What is their 401k worth 5. Is Em on the album 6. Are they part of the illuminate 7. Is the artist black or white 8. Who's fucking who 9. Did Rick Ross lie to me 10. Why is Nicki Minaj making music for women and not me 11. Is this guy really a killer or just a weak law abiding fag 12. Good song must be ghost written 13. G Unit flopped what will they do now with their millions 14. Is Jay Z the son of Satan, really I want to know 15. Only 12 songs! I feel cheated as I illegally DL music 16. T.I. is a snitch yet he's sitting in prison, AGAIN 17. 50 is a snitch yet avoids retaliation 18. I want 90's rap but I think Recovery is the greatest album 19. Hating Lil' Wayne makes me feel like a real hip-hop fan yet I couldn't name 3 underground rappers if my life depended on it. 20. Rakim is the greatest. Do you have his album? No. 21. I like real niggas except when niggas keep it real. Looking at Kanye. 22. Lupe is the truth. Next day Jay Cole is the truth. Next day Game is the truth. Yet neither one can buy a hit record at least not from you so called hip-hop fans. 23. I hate when rappers sing unless it's Em, Kanye, 50, Lupe, Wiz, Snoop. Anybody left? 24. I'm not buying Detox, Dre took too long. Yeah right. 25. Nobody listens to Soulja Boy. He just magically became a millionaire. HIP-HOP FANS ARE DEAD, HATEFUL, ANGRY, SPOILED, DELUSIONAL, BORDERLINE RACIST, AND DAMN NEAR BELIEVE IN ALIENS CONTROLLING JAY Z. End of rant.

    Independents doing gold is phenomenal fools. Usually the artist makes more money per sale than an artist on a major. Jay and Em make shit loads of money but they have to clear huge production costs before they get their cut. The net income is what matters.

    Look you young idiots, the only artist caking up off of record sales is artist who have ALREADY made their money in the CD and TAPE era. Their brand is already established. Jay, Kanye, Em, WuTang, Nas and other 90's early 2000 artist were doing Platinum easily back then. Wayne (and he wasn't really a new artist) is a rare exception today and the further we get away from hard disks the rarer you will see platinum or even gold. Live shows are the only thing left viable.

    • get real

      Music sales have gone up every year since 2006. You are buying into the industry's "pity us poor millionaires" propaganda. Digital sales are booming. Billions of dollars are made every year mostly by 4 companies. Sharing is caring, and free promotion.

  • DaWhat

    Sales are declineddd man .. Yo fuck rick ross him goin gold is disgusting. fake ass. fuck black eyed peas too! i hate that bullshittt. I bet banks is pissed as fuck at his numbers, This aint the reason but he had way too many guest appearances on hfm2. It was almost like a compilation album. make him look like he couldn't stand on his own. Nickis album wasn't good neither. All about exposure and marketing though at the end of the day i guess .

  • Nico 3

    56,000 is a flop, cause if Ross is only able to sell 500,000, and that's considered the low water bench mark for most artists today, then Banks is dead and gone. His one hit song was only big in New York, and clearly, that isn't swaying people to buy the album. Numbers don't lie and money isn't everything.

  • hiphop101

    As for Banks any independent album that sells 56,000 in 2 weeks with poor promotion is not bad at all... You cant be like he went 3x platinum on his 1st album so why he aint do it again? The answer to that is he had label issues for 3 yrs and this is his 1st album since winter 06 and music has been soft since then and he still sold a decent amount without going pop like Nicki,Kanye and Weezy... I guarantee this album sells around 200,000 when its all said and done...

      dat fag banks did go pop....example=his gay ass single any girl

      Yea, becuz it's independent. 50,000 in two weeks for an Indy album is real good. That's prob like 200,000 on a major label, money-wise. And it's gonna sell more! Hahaha, soulja boy WTF?

    Im so appalled...at the lack of sales banks has...the album shits on kanye's and nicky minaj's, he had good promotion too so wtf...hip hop is so depressing. I honestly think that nicky and kanye sold cuz they have female and prep type fanbases that will actually drop 10-20$ for an album...hood niggas love banks but they just bootleggin the shit. smh well i got mine and regardless of sales HFM2 is banging!

      gotdam thats cold..."koon rapper music" CTFU!!!! that sounds like it's gonna be the name of Nas' next album haha...but WhiteMart aint gonna sell any album titled that...why is it that Walmart won't sell explicit cd's but they're sell Saw 3D the Directors cut with extra limbs impaled? Like Jay said, "atleast keep it consistent" But thats right not selling explicit cd's only hurts hip hop music, could you imagine the fuss Quentin Torrentino would make if they Walmart would only sell the edited versions of his movies???? And dude how can you be on a hip hop sight acting racists and not even have the balls to leave a name...I Smell Pussy...But people do need to stop downloading. I;m from Philly and we broke as shit in this city I got like 80 dollars to hold me over for another week but i was just at Target and saw the T.I. cd and had to grab that shit...It's only ten fuccin dollars. What's ten fuccin dollars? 2 bags of weed? That's why I had to put 15 aside...YES! Oh and real hip hop fans need to go out and buy that Hunger For More 2 what the fucc ya'll problems Banks is a Real Rapper coccsuccers

  • Anonymous

    If it's not Nas, Wu, Kweli, Mos Def, The Roots, Common, eMC, or Little Brother just download the album because chances are it won't be that great. There are about 6 new rappers who are worth listening to. Everyone else has either been out since the mid 90's or early 2000's.

    • Vincent Salamatino

      You're a nerd dude...seriously you just named 8 acts and honestly the only one of them who conistently drops hot albums are the Roots. Don't hold your breathe for another Wu album dude, Why you think RZA is on the new Kanye album? Because he wants to be part of history. When was the last time Wu made history? You need to get up on things or ask somebody. Little Brother? What do they got like 2 albums? And 9th Wonder ain't even part of the group anymore because he wanted to be apart of something bigger. BTW did you even cop that Buckshot and 9th Wonder CD? That was better then any little brother cd. Common rather be in a movie then to actually part thought into a good album anymore. Did you see the GO! compilation he just released? You would rather buy that then T.I.'s No Mercy? Really tho? Mos Def released Black on Both Sides then after that it's like he just releases an album to remind people he still exist. You can't seriously tell me you listen to that album without a cover whatever the fuc the name of it was. The best song on their was Katrina Clap which was a remake of a Juvenile song nonetheless. Kweli is still hot and criminally overlooked i will give you that. But if you like him are you telling me you're not hype for that new Lupe album? And Nas hasn't released a better album then Jay Z since Stillmatic let's be honest here fella.

  • Hpno

    How fuck u figure ross bodied ANYTHING?? Teflon Don came out in JULY and is JUST NOW GOING GOLD after 4 SINGLES and he on a major label which makes it even more pathetic, G-unit is independent now and they still movin units HFM2 did 40K first week and EMI IS ONLY DISTRIBUTION u dumbasses thats y its G-unit/EMI u fuckin morons, point is FAWSE culdnt do those numbers on an indy he only "sellin" cuz he's bein co-signed by fake ass jay-z, and by next week nicki's weed plate will have outsold teflon don so what does that tell u ~_~

  • shaneka jones

    To be honest I was expecting Nicki Minaj to do bigger numbers. I guess after the bad reviews people didn't rush out and maybe her gay fans didn't buy 3 copies this week.(what straight man would listen to her) but then again 3.99 on Amazon and with a coupon it's only $1 online so her numbers should be way higher, this only shows no one really is interested in her just media buzz. As far HFM2 and Soulja Boy and Ross, HFM2 is a great album the only problem was no promos, not the right singles from LB himself and he should of dissed someone to make the album interesting. Soulja Boy just falling off, the little girls are moving on it seems until the next dope looking head comes along I guess. As for Ricky Rossy this is ashame it took him this long just to go gold. Now just about everyone on this chart has had a Platinum album and here you is on your 4th one barely going gold. It's a rap for you santa.

    • Vincent Salamatino

      WTF you dudes talking about. Banks fans are screaming HFM2 because it's an important album. Any fan of east coast rap should love this album. Like when i say HFM2 i'm tryna tell you dudes to check it out. Not brag about what type of sales it's gonna do...who the fucc gives a shit about the sales besides the actual artists and label. All I care about is if I'm happy with the cd. And I love the new Banks cd. It's not as hot as the first Hunger For More but's it's way hotter then Rotten Apple. And lyrically Banks is still on top of his game. He'll slaughter a lot of these rappers on this lists like a Slim Thug or Rick Ross. And I actually like Boss of All Bosses but it aint Banks.

    • slapyobitchass

      your a fuckin idiot. Banks been out two weeks and went wood his first week out. we all knew soulja boy had not talent then you had all these banks stans screming HFM2 every week and he flopped. check your facts before you open your mouth. Oh yeah Banks should be smokin soulja boy he had a hot radio single and it got him shit.

  • Rick Ross the Bawse

    And to all you niggas who ride wit G-Unit, Ross just bodied ya'all. Ain't none of them albums gonna sell. Yayo next to flop wit his wack ass rhymes. Rozay still doin it. BTW fuck Jeezy too, that nigga tryin to stay relevant throwin Ross name out there like that. Ross goin body that nigga lyrically too. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Vincent Salamatino

      Ross raps the same exact way on ery fuccin song. It;s so predictable i can adlib dudes shit without ever even hearing the song before. I like Ross too but Lyrically he aint hotter then Lloyd Banks. Ross got way hotter beats tho. If it wasn't for Cool and Dre, Justic league, and the Runners nobody would buy Rick Ross shit. He accidently stumbled into a signature sound on Mafia Music and pretty much stole Biggies image to sell. A fat dude wearing an expensive suit with a cigar hanging out his mouth sound familiar? You must of forget Banks came into the game with lines like "I know the watch is bothering you vision, but reach and I'll put a dot on your head likes it part of your religion.!" and Ross came in the game with lines like "I know the real Noriega he owe me a hunnid favors." Yeah Ross does know the real Noriega he was probably his fuccin C.O. sneaking him in PSP's in the Federal prison down in Florida. Ross is a fuccin fraud. I aint gonna hold you I still listen to his music because it's all about entertainment and Justice League and the Incredibles make amazing beats.

  • slapyobitchass

    haha, soulja boy 13K. Shit is hilarious. Even worse, Banks couldn't sell more than Soulja boy. And to all you stupid ass fucks who say Banks was on an Indy, research that shit, EMI is one of the big 4. Banks just flopped worse than "the decision." LOL

    • Vincent Salamatino

      So what does that prove tha Soulja Boi is better then Banks or something? If yall cheap fuccs actually bought albums if be a different story. You probably never even listend to the new Banks cd but wanna talk shit on it. You define ignorant. Besides Banks already won half the battle by putting his name back out there and having a gold single. But HFM2 is a solid album. One of the hottest New York albums I heard in awhile not released by Jay Z or Nas. But your ignorant ass wouldn't know that cuz instead of buying and listening to the music like we use to do you come a hip hop albums sales blog and look at the sales numbers and talk shit...wow...by your standards the Black Eyes Peas are one of the most feared Emcees hip hop they outsold so many people...give this dude a fuccin batman cookie.

      Indie is when u dont have MAJOR distribution... EMI is major distribution.

      NO the thing thats so TYPICAL and WACK about Ross going gold is that he announced he was gold A MONTH AGO! His IMAGINATION has been the issue from day 1.

Recovery was garbage other than two songs. eminem sucks now. the nigga been passed up in the game thats why he had to go pop, he know he is over the hill when it comes to hip hop.

    • Vincent Salamatino

      Banks album is far from wack. You would have to decipher his double and triple times mutli syllable rhyme scheme and the fact he is making playboy anthems instead of fag ass love songs like the usual do. But I wouldn't go as far as to say it's album of the year. Def deserves an honorable mention tho. Hunger For More 2 is one the hottest New York rap albums I have heard in a long time.

    • dlcrossdresser

      yeah that Banks album was album of the year for me too. HipHop isn't dead it's just played out so you can say it's pretty much dead. If you have a gimmick(nicki) and a cool camp with a weedhead(wayne) than you can pretty much sale. Albums use to sell off of if the album is good, but now all it takes is TV time and a gimmick. see Hiphop is dead in a way.....
