Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 1/2/2011

Nearly all Rap albums climb on the charts, including big gains from Kanye West and Diddy, with Lloyd Banks returning to the Top 200.

One of the slowest release weeks of the year ended with some shifts. The year's biggest and best climbed back to the top, while artists like Lloyd Banks and Mike Posner climbed back onto the Top 200, after weeks away. It was a close race at the top, and should look like this for some time, as January and February has a history of being friendly to independent projects to get their moment in the sun.

Eminem's Recovery climbed five more spots on the charts. As one of the year's best-selling albums, the Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records release has now surpassed 3.4 million units sold domestically. The work features production from Alex da Kid, DJ Khalil, Just Blaze and Mobb Deep's Havoc.

Close behind was Rihanna, who climbed seven spots. Her Loud album climbs towards platinum, with features from Eminem, Drake and Nicki Minaj.

DXnext alum Nicki Minaj climbed four spots with her Young Money Records debut Pink Friday. The effort out-sold the critically-acclaimed Kanye West album for a third straight week, which was released on the same November 22 date. Featuring both Nicki's brand of singing and rapping, Pink Friday has appearances from will.i.am, Drake and Eminem.

Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy shot up 14 spots in the last week of the year. The Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam Records released topped numerous year-end lists for it's lyrics, music, guests and mixing. West has been rumored to be releasing "All of The Lights" as his next single, which features Rihanna, Fergie and Elton John, among others.

Another big climb came courtesy of Atlantic Records' Bruno Mars. The singer and producer, known for his work with B.o.B. and Cee Lo Green climbed 13 spaces with his debut Doo Wops & Hooligans. The album features the aforementioned Bobby Ray and Damian Marley.

T.I.'s No Mercy climbed 10 spots after a month on record store shelves. The emcee and label owner's latest album was released while he was incarcerated for probation violations earlier this year, involving drugs. Officially crossing the 330,000 milestone, the latest album from Tip features Kid Cudi, Scarface and Rocko, with production by DJ Toomp, Kanye West and Jake One.

Going from #40 to #20, Lil Wayne's digital-turned-physical 2010 release I Am Not A Human Being continues to succeed with the emcee now free. Selling over 660,000 units to date, the album could reach platinum this new year.

After a major drop last week, Diddy and Dirty Money's Last Train To Paris bounced back 16 spaces in its third week on charts. Now at #27, Diddy's first Interscope-backed album features Drake, T.I. and Rick Ross. The conceptual work is said to be soon getting remixes to popular tracks, featuring Lil Wayne, Mary J Blige and others.

In its second week, Ghostface Killah's Apollo Kids actually gained five spots to #109. With vocal appearances from Game, Black Thought and Wu brethren, the album also features production from Pete Rock, Sean C & LV and Scram Jones.

G-Unit's Lloyd Banks returned to the charts after several weeks of absence. Banks' EMI-distributed H.F.M.2 (The Hunger For More 2) is widely considered a comeback for the Queens, New York rapper. The album features Kanye West, Raekwon and Pusha T.

    Banks Cd is fire he's doing ok for his album being undershipped. I dont know why they did a distribution deal with emi that label doesnt have any money to ship alot of albums to stores. They are counting only the physical coppies the rest of his album is being downloaded from itunes. I saw an about a month ago that Beamer, benz, bentley is over 700,000 worldwide just off itunes.Then you got the start it up single people buying off itunes, the i dont deserve you single off itunes, the anygirl single, and all the other hot songs on that album. So he's doing well but he would be doing alot better if he had more promotion, and a better distributor to get a bunch of albums in the stores. When i went to get banks album there were only a few in the store, and there was alot of people asking where was banks album but they only had a few in stock so people was like fuck it. So if it wasnt in the stores you have to get it on itunes and alot of people dont have itunes or arent good with computers so if they cant have the cd they just be like fuck it then. The only good thing is they dont have to share the money it comes to them cause they're independent. The're next deal they will get a better distributor and have better promotion cause they will probably get distributed through def jam. They dont have to worry about an album being undershipped with them because they arent in crazy debt like EMI.

  • solo

    Some of the best selling albums are from artistes that mix genres..check out this dude here..he gona b big http://www.myspace.com/cflotentative

  • Lenny

    The reason why Eminem sells like he does is because 80% of his fanbase is made up of Punk Rock/Death Metal/Screamo/Alternative Rock music listeners, which we all know sell records over a Hip Hop album ANYDAY. If you go on a site reviewing an Eminem album I guarantee in the Comments section you will find a hige majority of posts that read like this: 1) "I really dont like rap music, but I listen to Eminem" 2) "To me I hate rap, but Eminem's music is cool" 3) "I listen to Death Metal, but Eminem is the only rapper I like" Hip Hop sales actually act different than any other form of music as well. If a rapper sells about 200,000 first week, his 2nd week sales will fall between 50%-80% and in its lifetime will barely go platinum, or maybe 850,000 total. But you take a Country, Rock or sometimes a Pop album that sells between 100,000 to 300,000 their debut week they go on to sell between 3.5 & 5 million. That's how the audience of those forms of music buy their albums, so Eminem's main audience will buy his albums in that manner as well.

    • mrnoluv

      Totally agree, the best in any musical genre cross-over to other musical tastes. I remember when The Message first came out and I went back to the East Coast for the summer back in early 80's and I was shocked how many white kids on the east coast loved rap. Out here in Cali they didn't get into rap until 85 when Run DMC and Beastie Boys were big, but the East Coast they were into earlier. I remember when Thriller came out, you had guys that only listened to Funk and Soul and Jazz, Rock...everyone and I mean everyone loved Thriller and that was straight POP. That's why I say EM is the best, he isn't just for one group of music lovers, he hits everyone. Like Snoop said, when he made Kim, who no matter what race or music tasted didn't feel like killing a bitch before? He made you feel it. Now these little kids want to bring race into it, but trust me, if you are great at something, everyone will listen. Pac was great, everyone listened just like EM.

    Rofl @ all you kids arguing about regions like it matters. Good music is good music, regardless of origin and style. Pull whatever dick you got in your mouth out, and start fresh. And smh, who on earth would want to buy a Nicki Minaj album? What's the appeal with this fake bitch?

    • Lenny

      Agree 100% with everything with you said. "As long as the beats knock ad the lyrics is hot, son/ I could give a rat's ass where real Hip Hop came from" - Willie D And I think the reason Nicki Minaj is selling is because her music is more Pop-friendly than Hip Hop. So she putting up them Rihanna numbers. I still dont think it means her music is good though.

  • GAMEISGAY

    G UNIT MIGHT HAVE FELL OFF BUT RICK ROSS IS STILL A FAKE AND A COP...SO HE CHEATED..IF U THINK 50 IS OVER U R MAKING A SAD MISTAKE

  • SoSo

    South??? hahaha. who gives a Fuck.. how much money did you make out of that??? nothing... I lisen to westcoast shit, known and underground!!!

  • Mrnoluv

    Wow, Em has been out what 7 months and he's outselling fool with brand new albums? Ok if you don't respect what Em is doing - you are a HATER! I've never seen anyone dominate the charts like this in I'm in my 30's! Even back in the MJ Thriller days he had comp from Flashdance...EM has totally outsold all his comp! Add up all the other hip hop albums and they don't even equal EM's total! This is some sick shit! This is crazy!

    • mrnoluv

      You are missing the point, Thiller (if you were alive back then) dominated for two years, it had some comp but nothing even close. Relapse is the same I mean look at it, nothing in RAP is even close to it, is what I mean. As I said look at the HIP HOP albums, EM is destroying them, even if you put all the other artists together. Now take it from someone who was alive back then, MJ was dominate, but if you added the #2, #3, #4 sells they would surpass his total in America, EM's total is similar in his genre. That's why I'm telling you, you may not want to believe, can call me dumb...but take it from someone who's old enough to remember, he is dominating his genre like only MJ has. The guy has gone 3 and a half times platnium, how many other rappers last years even sold 1 mil? That's total domination!

    • ufool!

      Implying that relapse has dominated the charts more that thriller did is the most stupid thing ever. It has sold 110mil and was at number 1 for like 35+ weeks.tool.

  • Real Talk

    Let's see of all the people who went at least gold here: Eminem (Midwest-DET) Drake (Foreigner gone South- From TOR to MEM/NO) Kanye West (Midwest- CHI) Nicki Minaj (East/South- From NY to NO) Lil Wayne (South-NO) B.o.B (South-ATL) Ludacris (South-ATL) Rick Ross (South-MIA) Artists who went platnium for singles not listed above: Cali Swag District (West/South- From LA but based song off a dance from DAL) DJ Khaled (South-MIA feautes two FLA rappers (T-Pain/Rick Ross), ATL rapper (Luda), and LA rapper (Snoop Dogg) Flo Rida (South-MIA) Nelly (Midwest or South?- STL) You're getting the point here? You diss on the south yet aside from Eminem or Kanye, the South is selling more. Eminem's Recovery only rap feature happen to be Lil Wayne while Kanye had Southern rappers as well. I notice this, 8 of the rappers that went at least gold for the album was picked for MTV's Top 10 Hottest rappers. The two that didn't sell that made the list were Jay-Z (his album was released in 2009 but had some hot tracks with Kanye and the Tour with Eminem helped him) and Waka Flocka Flame (Controversial since he's no lyrical genius but pretty much has a big buzz in the streets, No Hands is played out in the clubs here.) These are stated by facts, not opinions. Sure I might not agree with the list but that's who life is. You thought Distant Relatives would sell when it had poor promotion? Big Boi's albums won't sell unless he records with Andre 3000 under the name Outkast. Don't worry, y'all can be Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber fans if you don't like the South running Hip-Hop.

    • southrunthisgame

      @Real Talk Right on my nigga, these niggas on this site don't recognize that the south run hip hop. NIggas and bitches from up north come down here to join our motherfuckin labels. Nicki knew where it was at thats why she left New York which can't sell shit other than Hov. We run this shit!

    • E8ght

      You stupid if you believe that the south has no lyrics. Each region has its own basic rappers. Stop hatin' and worry bout ya own.

    • rakim maan

      the day the any southern rapper outsells em or jayz is the day south runs rap. thatll be never. even with your faggot leader, lil wayne. who is still lil compared to em. rap is about lyrics. which very few southern rappers have.

    • Deezy

      alot of talk for not much of a point. who cares about whos running "hip hop" what happened to just listening to the song or artist that you can relate to the most or the music that you yourself enjoy.. stop worrying about everyone else and listen to whatever you want to. now that's some real talk

  • Jonel 'Shaq Deisel' Howard

    Recovery's gonna be on here for a while, I guarantee it lol. With the way things are though Kanye might go Platinum within a couple months. Nicki too, though I'm not surprised. Now a disappointment is Wayne's dreadful "EP gone LP" I am Not a Human Being actually going a little past gold. It's not hate, it's pointing out the fact that people still don't know who quality rappers are.

    its funny that someone cant call recovery a wack album without 10 ppl commenting and screaming hater. im a huge eminem fan but i think recovery was his worst album yet. still have nothing but love for em tho. fuck, just because u dont like something doesnt make u a hater. im just hoping that his next album will be rawer

    • slapyobitchass

      Encore was bad but Curtain Call's new tracks sucked too.

    • Nathan

      Sorry but I completely disagree recovery isn't his best but definatley not his worst encore is still his worst album. Half of the people who say his album sucks are haters who uses the I'm a huge eminem fan to pretend there one.

Poopy Butt Farts album droppin on youtube this Spring! Get Ready! Peace Ya'll!!!

    • BWS-Fish

      exactly the kind of ridiculous response i expected. Under that logic, there are only 79,000 'real hip hop fans' in the world. Faggots like you always claim to have a monoploy on what hip hop SHOULD be. Banks hasnt sold fuck all records because he's 'real hip hop', he sold fuck all records because no one gives a shit about G-unot or Banks anymore. And its hilarious that G-unot/Banks fans are now tryin to play down the importance of record sales considering its all any of you have talked about for 8 years now. Retard.

    • keep it real
