Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 9/30/2012

Lupe Fiasco sells nearly 90,000 first-week copies of "Food & Liquor II," while Murs & Fashawn also debut, and Kreayshawn vanishes from the Top 200.

Lupe Fiasco's fourth album, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 scored a Top 5 debut this week. The Atlantic Records star's latest album moved over 80,000 first-week units amidst a lot of controversy regarding retirement rumors, provocative song titles and concepts, sample permission, and more than one Twitter dispute with a Hip Hop peer.

Murs & Fashawn's first collaborative album also debuted on the charts. This is Fash's second retail release while Murs has previously earned success through Felt, a series of collaborative albums with Slug of Atmosphere and a rotating producer, in addition to work with 9th Wonder and Living Legends.

Kreayshawn's Somethin' 'Bout Kreay fell from the Top 200 in her second week at retail, as her friend and collaborator 2 Chainz crossed the 300,000 mark with his solo debut, Based On A T.R.U. Story.

Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor II Sales

Lupe Fiasco did not follow his #1 debut as was the case last year with Lasers. Instead, Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album, Pt. 1 was a creative return to form in some critics' eyes, and delivered Lu a respectable Top 5 debut.

With appearances from Bilal and Poo-Bear, the album also uses new producers, namely Game's longtime crew 1500 Or Nothin'. Early Lupe affiliate Soundtrakk also returns to the fold with "Strange Fruition." The album is a critical bounceback and one of Atlantic's flagship releases of 2012. Lu has promised a part-two to follow.

Murs & Fashawn Succeed

For the second straight October, Murs brings a release to the Top 200. Following 2011's Love & Rockets, Volume 1 through Damon Dash's DD172/Blu Roc label, Murs links with Fresno, California's Fashawn for This Generation. The album is entirely produced by Canadian duo K-Salaam & Beatnick and features Krondon of Strong Arm Steady. This is Fashawn's first appearance on the Top 200.

This week, Duck Down Music followed with Skyzoo's third studio album with the label, A Dream Deferred.

    SLAUGHTERHOUSE WAS SLEPT ON...The album as a whole is way better than Cruel Summer. Kanye put out a few good singles and that's what an album needs to sell. The SLAUGHTERHOUSE album is nice.

    Carter I = Wayne stepped his flow, lyrics, and delivery. Carter 2 = Wayne was on some heavy hood/gangsta songs, perfecting his flow and lyricism. Carter 3 = Most diverse Carter album. Had songs that gathered attention from several audiences making it the most popular. Carter 4 = Most mainstream. Not up to par, especially for a Carter album. Only a small amount of songs were memorable such as Mirror and President Carter. Carter 5 = ? Carter 6 = ? Hopefully the next two Carter albums are better.

    Dear Hip Hop fans, I am still happy about Lupe's first week sales, even though it could be much better. This year, I almost died again, seeing Slaughterhouse topping the chart but they didn't make it to the top, so I'm still alive. Lupe Fiasco's new album is one of the best albums in last years, if all of you want to support me, real Hip Hop, go and get it. Lupe deserves all the money and fame the world owes him. Don't let the stupid groups like Slaughterhouse or fake ass rapper DMX who tries to parasite on Drake's talent to kill me and the real essence of my music. Brother Ali and Fashawn tried to kick me back to the grave too, now you see how karma works, none of them are able even to sell 100,000. Have a nice day and keep supporting the real Hip Hop and his principle, go and buy music by Lupe, 2 Chainz, Nas or Big Sean. Don't let the gay groups like Slaughterhouse to fool you. They are evil and want to kill me, kill you and kill the music y'all love. Sincerely, Hip Hop

    • The Real, Real Hip-Hop

      Dear the Realest Hip-Hop, You're a phony. You're hip-pop. YMCMB, MMG, 2Chainz are killing hip-hop. They have no talent and make generic pop rap. Real hip-hop fans know it. DMX is a hip-hop legend with more talent than those pop bitches. Rick Ross and 2Chainz dropped trash albums that are weed-plates. Nas and Lupe dropped classics. Quality>>>>>Quantity. Sincerely, Hip-Hop P.S: fuck YMCMB, fuck MMG, fuck 2 Chainz, fuck Big Sean, fuck Brick Squad, and if you down with them, then fuck you, too.

    • The Realest Hip Hop

      Dear so-called "Real" Hip Hop, please, stop calling yourself "real" and what is the most important, stop hating on people who actually have the REAL talent (MMG, YMCMB, 2 Chainz and others). You might not like their songs and message but all of the real fans should agree on the fact they are the one of the few artists keeping the real hip hop alive. DMX have no talent and I'm not hating on him, it's just a fact, the real fans never bought his CD, it's all 10-12 kids who are listening Eminem stuff too. Lupe, Rick Ross, Nas and 2 Chainz just dropped classic albums and those who didn't understand it, just listen again and carefully. Sincerely, The Realest Hip Hop

    Lupe shouldn't have sold out with the new album, it wasn't even worth it. Talking about lamborghinis and bad bitches, that's why I knew it wasn't worth listening to the album, so I'm glad it flopped. He's a fake skateboarder and fake politic, and isn't even in the top 5 NY emcees. He shouldn't have joined with the illuminati, they initiated him by making his album all black, which is a ritual sacrifice. Damn what a sell out, what happened to the short-hair, intelligent Lupe with meaningful lyrics? rip Lupe...

    • hjk

      I would never think I will agree with YEBO on anything but he is right in some points... And just because Hip Hop was "born" in NY doesn't mean it needs to live still in that city. Lupe is better than Emine, DMX and for me, even better than Pac. And I don't see the context, Em and Pac don't represent NY.

    • Anonymous

      @YEBO You need to jump off a bridge. Lupe is good, but he ain't that good. Besides, you're wrong. New York is the birthplace of hip-hop with a lot of legends. YMCMB/MMG are the worst, most overrated groups in music. Eminem, Pac, and DMX are hip-hop legends, you disrespectful troll cunt.

LUPE SHITS ON THEIR WHOLE CAREERS JUST BY ONE LINE AND HE SOLD IN FIRST WEEK AS MUCH ALBUMS AS THEY DID OVERALL. AND IT IS NOT EVEN HIS STRONGEST OPENING WEEK. I SWEAR IN 50 YEARS WHEN LUPE FIASCO WILL PEACEFULLY DIE WITH THE STRONG LEGACY, EVERYBODY WILL RESPECT HIM EVEN 200 YEARS LATER, HE WILL HAVE BIGGER RESPECT THAN MOZART, BEATLES, JACKSON, AMY WINEHOUSE, ELLA FITZGERALD, GUCCI MANE, WACK ASS TUPAC, POP SINGER EMINEM AND BITCH MOVE MASTER DMX ALL PUT TOGETHER.

      Wow. You're the most retarded troll ever. So Icy Boi is even smarter than you. 1. Lupe is better than anyone in Slaughterhouse 2. Yelawolf is NOT part of Slaughterhouse. 3. It's called The Cool, not Lupe Fiasco Is Cool, dumbass. And he just released a good album a week ago called Food & Liquor 2. 4. Lupe did not sellout. 5. What does Lupe getting dreads have to do with Chief Keef? He had dreads before anyone has even heard of Chief Keef. It's not a gimmick to sell, it was Lupe's own personal decision. 6. He is not gonna dye his hair blond like Chris Brown. What kinda bullshit is that?

    • Eye Control

      Sorry guys, I just don't think Lupe is better than anyone in Slaughterhouse. Even Yellow Wolf is better than Lupe, and he's the weakest one in Slaughterhouse. I just think Lupe hasn't had a good album since 'Lupe Fiasco Is Cool', and I know he sold out because he got his hair cut like Chief Keef to sell more records and it did not work. Watch, soon Lupe will die his hair blonde because Chris Brown is doing it, mark my words.

    • Anonymous

      Do you even listen to Lupe's songs? Bad Bitch is about the idea of abolishing the word bitch from rap and the negative effect it draws on society while Lambo Angels is about how materialistic hip hop culture is and has religious ties into it as well. But, I wouldn't expect somebody to actually listen to the songs and think into the meanings and messages they possess.

    • Lol

      Well, first of all, he's not from NY, so that point is irrelevant. Secondly, if you think that the title of the songs are what the song is about, then you are very mistaken. I have this strong feeling that you're one of those people who don't listen for a deeper meaning in music. If it isn't what it seems at face value, it's garbage. This is far from a "sell-out" album, considering the type of lyricism that he brings with this album. Yes, it's not his best album, but it's far better than LASERS and on par with "The Cool". I'm sorry, but if you haven't listened to the album and given it a fair analysis, you should really keep those fingers from typing ignorant bullshit.

      Wow, no grammatically correct responses. Lupe is not bad, I just think there are better new artists out right now like Slaughterhouse and Tech N9ne. I'm not sure who Murs, Fashawn, or Brother Ali are but they all flopped so they're probably all wack emcees. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, and GOOD Music only sell because they are illuminati. But I hope to hear more from Tech N9ne, he could definitely win the 'Best New Artist' grammy.
