Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 3/4/2012

Kid Cudi scores a Top 3 debut with WZRD's first album. Meanwhile, Maino sells twice as many albums as Ja Rule, while Too Short scores a Top 100 debut without trespassing.

This was the most exciting week to date on the charts this year for the Hip Hop community. There were four new additions, fresh off of last week's two, including a Top 3 debut by Kid Cudi's third album, a collaborative release with Dot Da Genius, as WZRD. Also appearing are Brooklyn veteran Maino, Oakland Hip Hop pioneer Too Short, and the first album from Ja Rule in seven-and-a-half years.

Kid Cudi's WZRD Casts A Spell On The Charts

Cudi and Dot's WZRD sold over 66,000 units. The self-produced Universal Motown Records project featuring Empire Of The Sun and Desire landed at #2. Last week, Cudi criticized his label for reportedly under-shipping CD copies, limiting the release's potential. This is Cudi's third overall album, and a first release for Dot Da Genius.

Maino's Day After Tomorrow Outsells Ja Rule's PIL2

Two longtime New York rappers released projects after lengthy hiatuses yesterday. Maino's first album in nearly three years found the Brooklyn rapper after leaving his major label Atlantic Records deal. Now the E1/Hustle Hard artist scored a Top 100 debut for his sophomore album.  Day After Tomorrow featured T.I. and Meek Mill, along with a Best Buy exclusive version boasting appearances by Lloyd Banks and Clinton Sparks' production. Maino's sales over doubled those of former Murder Inc./Def Jam star Ja Rule. Now incarcerated, the Queens, New Yorker's first album since 2004's R.U.L.E. cleared 3,000 units. A sequel to his 2001 Pain Is Love album, Ja's follow-up was largely produced by longtime collaborator 7 Aurelius. This is Rule's first album away from Def Jam, released by Mpire and distributed by Universal Fontana.

    Wow,its funny that after his album sales were poor that Hip Hop DX is now promoting him,SMH

    Being indie isn't a cake walk. Whatever they bank basically gets thrown back into the fray to bank roll another project. Plus they have to cover all expenses on the road, 365 days a year. They need a video? They got to shell out for it. Fancy cars? Money. Jewelry? Money. Unless they're like Tech Nine and actually do shows 365 days a year to ensure every album does at least 100,000, in reality they're this close to being poor.

      not really they produce most of their shit themselves so they get about 75-85% of their yearly profits which is about 150-300k a year.

    Ja, please consider making upbeat songs about happy things, love, partying etc.. I'm a big fan, but the reason i'm a big fan is because your previous songs are so upbeat, they make me happy and put me in a good mood.. i'm not really a fan of pitbull but he seems to b makin massive sales because his songs seem to b upbeat for other people and they seem to get happy from his songs

  • Anonymous

    Ja, as much as i'm not really a fan of YMCMB, it might b worth considering signing up with them.. that will probably help push sales.. I heard Christina Milian recently signed with them.. i might even start actually likin YMCMB if you sign as well

  • Joe

    I listened to two tracks on PIL2 and it was ridiculous. Rappers who think adding "2" to album titles will increase sales are delusional. The only way Ja-Rule can make money is if he does live shows, shows up and says, "What would I do with out my ba-baaaay." That's it. I would pay $10 to watch that because regardless of the present that song has a lot of memories attached to it for a lot of people. Roll with what's in your wheelhouse buddy.

    Ja deserves to sell WAAAAAAAAY more than he did. This really does show that music doesn't matter when it comes to sales.

  • georgel

    Nobody cares about ja-rule, true hip hop fans dont want his cd and he sold well to pop fans. he needed a pop album like he used to if he wanted sales. a true hip hop head who likes wu tang, rakim, nas, etc will not be worrying about ja rule. sales do matter because when an album sells that poorly on week one their career is basically over.

  • Arcy P.

    everyone hatin' on Cudi, there's nothing wrong with listening to something different. I get tired of hearing the same monotone rappers tell their same stories over and over. at least Cudi keeps it interesting. when I'm in different moods I listen to different artists. when I want to hear something lyrical I listen to Skyzoo, Kendrick Lamar, Talib Kweli, etc. when I want to hear something goofy I listen to Tyler The Creator, Childish Gambino, Mac Miller, etc. when I want to hear something chill I listen to Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, etc. I think people should stop hating artists they don't like and just enjoy artists they do like

    • HAHA

      Funny how you much Kid Cudi not being monotone. I am fan of his MOTM stuff but he's very monotone and very mediocre at rapping. Yet his WZRD album just wasn't "good". It just doesn't feel like a Kid Cudi album. Even GOOD Music didn't have its back on the album. It only sold decently because Kid Cudi has a solid fanbase of stoners & white teenage suburb kids who listen to mainstream rap like Wiz, Drake & Wale, dubstep music or alternative indie rock which WZRD would qualify in.

      Naw it ain't a bad day for hip hop shorts a legend and ja didn't get the right promotion and the nigga locked up. A lot niggas didn't even know ja was releasing an album. Especially niggas who are ymcmb/mmg zombies or niggas who only buy what's selling like crazy. Ja needs to get out drop another album and bring back that v.v.v. heat. I didn't like pil1 and the second is only a slight improvement from the first.

    • that doesn't make any sense

      you fucking idiot

    I feel bad for Maino... he makes goos songs, but he gets penalized for being real it seems. I feel like people will appreciate your shit more if you just made up lies, wear crazy cloths, and get a whole bunch of tattoos!!! THANK YOU

    Mad disappointed in Maino's sales, album is raw. Really feel his music, happy I bought it. Pain is Love 2 was decent, actually downloaded it but it wasn't special. Most stores got 1-3 copies and they're still sitting.

    Hip Hop is taking blows again. Jeezy seem like he wont go platinum with what i consider his most solid album. Hip Hop Heads kissing the ass of industry puppets Example ( jadakiss saying he is inspired by Rick Ross wtf)
