Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 11/13/2011

Mac Miller debuts at #1 as a full independent artist. Meanwhile, two other indie releases hit the charts with momentum, Tech N9ne's latest "Collabos," and Pusha T's "Fear Of God 2" street album.

For the second week in a row, a DXnext alum led the Hip Hop charts. Following Wale's #2 overall debut last week, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania's Mac Miller scored an absolute #1 debut. Released entirely through hometown independent Rostrum Records, Mac's full-length debut out-sold Michael Buble's Christmas album by a margin of over 20,000 units.

Mac Miller Makes The Charts His Playground With Blue Slide Park

Mac Miller's full-length debut, Blue Slide Park's #1 debut is monumental for the 19 year-old emcee. The album features production from Lil B affiliates Clams Casino and Young L, as well as veteran Pitt production team I.D. Labs. The project's title is a reference to Frick Park, a popular destination in Miller's youth. This is Miller's second charted works this year, after March's On and On and Beyond EP.

Tech N9ne's Latest Collaboration Album Wins, As Does Pusha T's Mixtape

Two other notable releases debuted on the charts. Tech N9ne's second 2011 release, Welcome To Strangeland nearly broke the Top 20. The latest in Tech's "Collabos" series, this work featured in-house artists exclusively, ranging from Jay Rock and Brotha Lynch Hung to Krizz Kaliko and Kutt Calhoun. Earlier this year, Tech's All 6's & 7's was released, his top-charting album to date.

Another independent release came courtesy of Decon's Pusha T solo project, Fear of God II: Let Us Pray. The retail mixtape project featured Tyler, The Creator, Kanye West and Young Jeezy. Production is courtesy of The Neptunes, Nottz and Hit-Boy. The Clipse co-founder released Fear Of God earlier this year as a free mixtape. Although presented through Decon, FOG2 also features G.O.O.D Music and Re-Up Gang Records backing.

    I still wish Brotha Lynch's 3rd album with Strange came out as planned on Halloween :(

    LMAO, Tech N9ne, Pusha T. and Game all should be ashamed of themselves. Especially Tech N9ne. I would think that that BET Cypher exposure would've gotten him more sales. Guess I was wrong. Wiz out-selling Game is CRAZY....didn't really see that coming, but daaaamn.

  • bizzalls

    Yea man, WTF? Mac Miller selling 144k first week?? HUH? HOW??! Pusha T only sold 10k (although it is a MIXTAPE NOT AN ALBUM) but still!! That shit blows my mind, I can't understand it. How does that dude have such a big fanbase? 144k?! Pusha T 10k?? WOW..

From his content, to his words and emotion i can listen to cole and K.dot all day. The rest i agree with. I use to like Wale still do but i feel as if he switched up and went commercial after joining MMG. and young jeezy is not selling 400k ina week lmao rick ross will sell more then him try something like this 50 350k rozay 375k jeezy 175-220k There all bums.

    • Jamel Jhuntdaprodigy Hunter

      @Damm again, is probably right, except Ross will most likely cross the 100k mark, he did abt 170k with Teflon Don, and his popularity has only increased since then with MMG starting to take off. Jeezy will do at least 100k-200k off of loyal fanbase alone. And IDK abt 50 actually, he did like 160k last time, it all depends on if he can get a somewhat good single

    • damm again

      Rick ross wont cross the 100.000 mark Young jeezy probably 250.000 like j.cole 50 cent wont release his album this year 2012 is his comeback fo sure

    Everybody saying they dont see the big hype about Mac Miller selling 144k because he was all over MTV needs to check themselves because that statement in itself is kinda hating... then they go on to say it doesnt matter because he wont see gold. LOL could u be anymore of a hater? Let me get this straight... When other indie artist sell smaller numbers you say its because they are indie and they didnt get promoted like major label artists and when an indie artists gets promoted the right way and damn near breaks the mold for indie music marketing you say that its not valid because he was being marketed as much as a major label artist? GTFOH! U cant hate on the fact that Mac has a good team and Rostrum records and them did their fucking jobs..... Be proud and happy for the man because its a win for Hip Hop. Fuck Mac basically did similiar numbers to Wale who is on a major... Its a good look for indie music and other rappers trying to make it without a label.

      Ok, if he's a Mac Miller dck rider, then you're a Apathy and whoever the other nigga is dick rider also. Mac can spit. But you can't say only niggas with no lyrics can spit. Tech N9ne moves good numbers, has good publicity and he's indie. It's just them niggas you've named haven't even caught hype in the streets yet.

    • Gang Starr

      Nope. We have already explained to you retarded Wack miller fucks. He is a wolf in sheeps clothing. There is virtually no other indie artist recieving the level of attention that Wiz Khalifa gets but Mac. So your arguement is flawed. Ive never seen rappers like One Be Lo or Apathy being featured so much in magazines or MTV so how do you explain that? Is It that they have less talent? Hell no. The same stupid fucks that are buying justin bieber albums are buying mac miller records, so stop preaching to the choir. I swear I could shoot a mac miller dick rider. This shit is a win for the kids that have their parents buying albums for them and check to see If theres a parental advisory sticker on the front.


    DX wild they pulled one with the Game. They didn't have to do him like that. They could of put him right under Wiz khalifa. But instead, they put a wide gap in between, and put the game's sales lol. DX yall wild for that.

  • Mike Meraz

    Great Album. still not as good as K.I.D.S., lol he went all out on that syt. Mac shoulda threw "Donald Trump" and the "BDE Bonus" track on here, but anyway..this review's pretty rough although I too believe Mac has a hard time holding down a WHOLE album lyrically. "Under The Weather" is AMAZING. An amazing track that's real, dope as hell and can be a hit but also a hit with "real hip hop" folks as well. -"I found out being famous, in reality, well it ain't shit! cause you can have the world in the palm of your hand but it don't mean a thing till you change it.." ...that's the kinda shyt I like. "Freid Park Market" does sound a little similar to "Donald Trump" but who cares, that shyt BANGS!! haha, but than again, its not like any of Weezy's songz sound alike, so you guys got me there. "Blue Slide Park", "PA Nights", "Of The Soul", 'Man In The Hat" and "One Last Thing" are all dope as hell. "Missed Calls" and "Diamonds And Gold" are both good songs. "Part On Fifth Ave" and "Smile Back" are ok but I don't really like them at all. "My Team" and "Loitering" are stupid but the beats are dope. But that "Up All Night" track??? That's that "White bitches jumping on a trampoline music", haha. Good shyt. That last verse on "Of The Soul" where he goes off and then the drums come in? OOeewwY! Hard to find that feeling in hip hop nowadays. I'm also pleased that he didn't have any FEATURES on his album, that's how ya gotta do it. Alone.. no disrespect to J.Cole, I still got "Cole World" ahead of this but you fucking people are just haters! I know that word's used a lot when it comes to Mac Miller, but WTF were you doing when you were 18? haha! Not putting together dope albums like this. 4/5 PeaCe!

  • yawooh

    props to Mac Miller..I dont like his music but it shows jus how dominant Hip-Hop(even though ppl said it's dying or was dying) is..We have #1 albulms every week(or other week)...Lol at "will Drake take Mac's spot next week?" dats not even a question

    I'm glad that Mac Miller did it without features from Jay Z, Trey Songz, Drake and Missy Elliot. He also did it without having to be featured on The Blueprint 3 and Miguel's album. No Rihanna sextape rumor, No appearance on Beyonce's video, no tour with Rihanna, Jay Z and Drake. No expensive Paula Abdul sample playing on the radio, plus 2 additional singles before that (workout and hit it in the morning).

    Game's RED ALBUM is better than all those GAY ALBUM released till now,but the big problem is the GANGSTA/WESTCOAST shit a'nt selling no more,everbody is interested to buy RAP-POP or RAP-BIBIER SHIT.Now u can understand why DRE still dont wanna put out is DETOX.

      game is trash. documentary was okay but everything afterwords been lame fagott shit! He's most memorable singles are from the documentary. He was laughing at banks numbers look at him now and he on a major and banks independent. he wont even go gold. wikipedia has banks sales at 340k game on 208k sellin 2k copies a week? muthafucka flopped. No singles,album full of features with lil wayne drake rick ross tyler the creator kendrick lamar...all these rappers had a buzz,thats why game chose them for red thinking it would boost his sales. He wack,tell me a single punchline you can remember from game. damn even soulja boy got a line that he can be proud of..i dont freestyle coz my style aint free. what about game? i aint apreacher but here's my erick sermon? fuck is that shit?

    Does it not bother anyone else that J Cole and Wayne can sell all these units first week but second and third week they sell like 100 times less, that totally makes no sense at all.... Smells like bullshit first week sales really.

    • ilexx

      When I see comments like this I wonder if you are a frequent visitor who also checks the sales report every Wednesday or your just an idiot. Wale was #2 last week with 160k sold and is now #15 with 40k sold... He took a 77% drop, and both J. Cole and Wayne took roughly the same drop in their 2nd week sales too. It is not uncommon for that to happen. Especially when u have a ride or die fan base that goes out and picks up your record as it drops and u see the fall off when the casual fans are now buying your record. Cole's album dropped 6 weeks ago and u think Jay-Z/Roc Nation/Sony/Columbia are BUYING his records? LOL u guys are funny... I see how this argument still exists with 1st week sales but u cant show me a solid reason why they would be still buying records because that doesnt benefit them at all. They are trying to MAKE MONEY not spend more money. SMH at you dumb fucks looking for a reason to hate on an artist cuzz he sells better than your fav. rapper.

      Wayne shit is real, but that Cole is fake. All you have to do is visit stores twice a week and you can clearly see that Wayne's shit is flying off of the shelves. On the other hand, Cole World is not selling like that in stores. Jigga and Sony are buying downloads to create fake interest for Cole.

There is no limit to what age someone can blow up, don't allow past trends to dictate the future.

      Why are you missing the point!?!?! He kept it in-house because he is trying to introduce these artists to the world. The more attention Tech gets is the more attention Strange Music gets and now they are focused on breaking more artists so that the company is solely relying on Tech 9.
