Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 5/27/2012

El-P gets back to back weeks of chart debuts. The Company Flow alum achieves his highest career marks with "Cancer 4 Cure." Strange Music also gets a one-two punch with Prozak and Krizz Kaliko.

For the second consecutive week, a fully-produced album by El-P debuted on the Top 200. Following El's musical half of  R.A.P. Music by Killer Mike the previous week, the Brooklyn, New York native's third vocal album, Cancer 4 Cure as a soloist nearly scored a Top 50. Also this week, as Strange Music's Krizz Kaliko is the most recent label project, Kickin' & Screamin', to appear on the charts, last month's Paranormal effort from Michigan emcee Prozak made an encore with a strong sales boost.

El-P Diagnoses Fans With His Cancer 4 Cure

In a career that spans nearly 20 years, producer/emcee El-P garnered his highest charting position to date with Cancer 4 Cure. The Company Flow co-founder has also produced full albums for Cannibal Ox and earlier this month, Killer Mike, but the #61 position for his Fat Possum Records release is a benchmark, topping I'll Sleep When You're Dead's #78 spot from 2007. C4C, a self-produced LP, features Danny Brown, Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire and Mike, among others. The independent solo effort, and El's first since his Def Jux label went on hiatus, was backed by the single "The Full Retard."

Killer Mike's Brand Of R.A.P. Music Matters

In its second week in stores R.A.P. Music fell 59 spots to #136. R.A.P. Music is already one of the releases getting "album of the year" talk from fans, as 2012 approaches its midpoint. The Williams Street release, an Adult Swim subsidiary, dropped Mike's sixth album. Fellow Southern Rap veterans T.I. and Bun B appear on the album, along with scratching from longtime Eyedea musical partner, DJ Abilities. Earlier this month, Mike spoke in-depth with HipHopDX about the chemistry he's found with El.

    White boys trying to associate greatness with Eminem to disassociate black efforts, atypical. Get your head out of your ass and recognize greatness. Eminem did well because he was well marketed with a white collective, a target demographic that could easily afford CD's where as other artists didn't have that appeal. Like Elvis taking black songs making it his own and labeling it new, Eminem did the same. SORRY. That should be conventional wisdom by now, not something you could exploit. Cry me a river white boys and get into other artists that challenge your culturally deprived identity. Do yourselves the favor, you won't regret it.

    Quit bitching of what you hate like anybody cares for that, really, Then start listening to the artists that are getting little recognition. Killer Mike's album is one of the only albums I've gone out of my way to buy and it is well worth it but this album, like most that win album of the year? Will create an identity crisis on your tastes

    Paul Mccartney Sold More Albums Than ANY Rapper Any Of You People Are Talking About, So Put That In Your Pipe And Blaze It!

    • andre61

      can't compare that, nobody will ever sold as much as beatles, presley or jackson, because of piracy and the change of overall market (singles selling better than albums)... probably if Beatles would be the new band, have same hype as they had in past today, they would make 2x platinum album at most

    "This is like saying that LeBron James is better than Michael Jordan. Say that when LeBron has 6 rings" Rings aside, one could say with confidence than Lebron as an all around player is better than MJ. He's already won 3 MVP awards. Has been to the finals twice. Consistently puts up numbers that are ridiculous. Honestly, I don't know why some hate on this guy. MJ was amazing, but he had help. Minus Wade, who has Lebron had to help ensure a title?

  • god from medina

    so sad that some ppl actually think that records sales translates to how great a rapper is. if that's how dopeness is judged then that's just another nail in hip hops coffin by the same fans that claim to rep it. your minds need to be recalibrated. lets start. recent memory, soulja boy , lil jon, nelly sold tons of records and these guys are not in the elite lyricist class or convo. cold crush mellie mel treacherous 3 along with early "golden era" acts like doug fresh, rakim, bdp, utfo ll blew up without videos, major label, cursing or record sales. come to think of it i don't think LL's first album had one video for it.

    eminem has been wack since relapse. i dont give a fuck about record sales, hes got full backing from his black fans AND more importantly all the white sub urban kids that dont know a thing about hiphop. The fact of the matter is, the suburban kids will unconditionally buy his shit no matter how wack his albums are which is why hes so succesful. since relapse, all he's ever done is moan and shout on his records. Best rapper ever? oh please dont make me laugh

    Eminem sold more than Jay Z, Biggie and Tupac, which means that he better, duh.

  • Brizz

    Tried to buy rap music through the european amazon site and they said it was sold out and play.com didnt have it at all, how is mike supposed to sell if the retailer dont got it. I belive prober distribution would have easily doubled his sales...

      ^^^^^, u fucking bastard. Eminem is WHITE which means all the white suburban kids buy his albums. That is why he is the highest selling hip-hop artist of all time.

    First of all, Eminem sold 1,760,000 in his Marshall Mathers Lp which went diamond.. Second of all, The Eminem Show was due to Be released In May 28 but due to the excitements of the crowd it was released on the 27th which Was a violation to the sellings.. It sold 340,000 in may 27th only, and in the week of may 28 to June 4 it sold 1,400,000. And by the way, that went diamond too

      Seriously. The keep under shipping these albums that are actually well worth copping. They send out millions of these garbage CDs that no one wants after awhile because they know they are garbage. The labels really think these dudes have no fans or something smh. Even if they had zero fans, the music speaks for itself, R.A.P music, and Cancer For Cure are well worth the purchase. Easily better than everything else on that list

    "Kalliko at 12K" My question is where are people even finding this album? 12k for an album with zero promotion? That's unheard of.

    • uhhh

      not really, Cam'ron's Crime Pays had pretty much zero promotion and still sold 45k in it's first week and debuted #3 on the charts.

  • Anonymous

    "if he gave a flying fuck he could've done like 10 stupid movies off the success of 8 mile" True, but remember too that not everybody is comfortable acting. 8 Mile was catered to Em because it was his life. Nobody was calling him the Detroit Deniro. I bet he's read hundreds of scripts since, but might be scared to have to now carry a movie that has nothing to do with his life.

    You gotta admit, the B.O.B. situation is nothing but sad. Dude goes about as poppy, commercial-sounding you can get with a rap album, and it flops like a muthafucka. And the sad thing is, the dude's got skills no question and could actually make good music. I mean, i heard him rapping on like an "Adidas" commercial or some shit, and that song was better than shit he puts out as real music! B.O.B. done fucked up.

      Or T.I. He always sales alot

    • yeaahhh

      It's only been out a month so how is it a flop?? The album is dope and he's on the same pace as his first album (which sold 600k). Sales don't determine the quality of music...and besides if you're not Jay, Em, Wayne, Kanye, Drake or Nicki you won't sell a whole lot..

      The Anons are right, just off the top of my head I remember back in like 07 50 was saying that Universal offered him & Em $10 Million a piece to do a movie and Em said no because he didnt want to leave detroit.

      Eminem outsold everybody (but we all really know why) Jay sells just as much as Wayne so thats dead And Drake still has a while before he reaches Nas' level if ur talking about some Rap shit. But I agree, YMCMB gets way too much hate. Especially since its clear that they're not traditional Hip Hop artists and we as the hip hop community should do a better job embracing them and representing them. Especially with a historically relevent record company like Ca$h Money Records.
