Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 2/10/2013

Joe Budden makes a nice debut on the charts, while Brotha Lynch Hung has a solid entry with "Mannibalector."

Joe Budden makes a strong debut on the charts this week with his third straight-to-retail album No Love Lost, which enters the top 20 straight out the gate. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, whose single "Thrift Shop" has now spent consecutive weeks atop the singles chart, continue scanning product and pull ahead of A$AP Rocky's debut studio album Long.Live.A$AP, which continues to slide down.

With a few artists getting a bump thanks to one day of post-Grammy Award Sales (2 Chainz, Nas), Brotha Lynch Hung manages to be the sole Hip Hop artist to debut in the top 200 this week, scoring a nice placement above No. 70 with a solid number of copies sold.

Check below to see who had the strongest week on the charts.

Joe Budden Finds Love Isn't Lost On The Charts

Joe Budden has scored his highest chart debut to date since the release of his eponymous debut, which peaked at No. 8 in 2003. This week, the Jersey native bows at No. 15 with a solid 30,000 copies sold of No Love Lost, putting it at the high-end of the sales projections released last week. The success stems from the attention gleaned from both his charting single "She Don't Put It Down" featuring Lil Wayne and Tank, which is becoming his best-performing track to date, and his appearance on VH1's "Love & Hip Hop," which has been airing over the past month.

For No Love Lost, the Slaughterhouse rapper took a different approach. He relies heavily on guests for the LP, which features appearances from Wiz Khalifa, French Montana, Juicy J, Lloyd Banks and a crew of others. Joey Jumpoff's last album, the digital offering Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 The Worst, picked up in sales after its subsequent retail release, peaking at No. 9 on the Rap Albums chart.

Brotha Lynch Hung Attacks The Chart With Mannibalector

Strange Music's Brotha Lynch Hung shows that hard work continues to pay off. His third album for the label, Mannibalector, makes a solid chart debut, entering at No. 67 with 7,900 copies sold. The LP, which marks the third in a trilogy following the story of a man evolving into a cannibalistic killer, co-stars a handful of guests including Yelawolf, Tech N9ne and Hopsin, picking up where prior releases Coathanga Strangla (2011) and Dinner and a Movie (2010) left off. Brotha Lynch recently spoke to HipHopDX about his thoughts on the album as well as hoping to meet Eminem.

    "As a fan of good music i just wanna hear a dope album" I agree with that. I just think people go into certain albums already looking to hate. Doesn't matter if it's KL, Ross, Wayne, whoever. Fans know what they're getting when they pop that CD into their deck, or cue up their IPOD.

  • thechosenone

    ppl just hatin the fact that MMG r runnin the game n outsellin everyone, ppl need to realise the how good MMG music is fuck all the haters out there, YMCMB and MMG outsellin everyone and wont stop at all

    • Stop lying to yourself

      wait so who is MMG out selling? Not 2 Chainz, not Kendrick, Lamar, not Young Jeezy! Not even out selling J. Cole! LOL and Mac Miller and Macklemore both sold more independently than Meek Mill with MMG behind him!

  • Big Bang theory

    Yo on another note these fucking no it all behind the desk at home typing from mommies basement ass niggas always want to add up niggas loses. Yo you motherfuckers do not know these niggas and they don't even know of yall motherfuckers existence. Why do you fucking lames think its cool when one of your favorite artist you niggas like to jerk off to does something good yall feel like yall got a victory too. You niggas can't be serious bragging about K-Dot record sells and then get made at niggas for bragging about 2chain record sells.

  • Big Bang theory

    I get it now, i get it now. I understand it all right now. These Macklemore and Ryan Lewis used the gay approach to sell records. You people realize the shit thats selling the most records now is everything thats gay right. These niggas used a support gay marriage to sell there records and these lady gaga fans is eating that shit up. You niggas can't tell me that shit these niggas is spitting is hot. With that said they aight but that gay shit to sell records is what these niggas did. Kool Yo i know most of you fucking geeks(i ain't mad at you nerds don't be offended) probably never seen the Boomdocks. Gangsta Liscious Homeys over Hoes episode. Them niggas predicted this gay shit in hip hop and all you little fags is eating that shit up. I don't hate gay people(hate fags) i just hate you queers acting like yall got a movement going on or comparing fags to slavery and shit.

    "He won't even see as many albums as Ross has" How do you know that though? Does quoteman have a crystal ball to see the future? Ross didnt put out his first album until he was damn near 30 so Kendrick is already on track to have a more prolific career. Ricky is pushing 40 and if he won't be alive much longer whether it be from a heart attack or a bullet.

    "thats 712 k sold in less than 4 months" It will be at least 5 months until it goes platinum assuming it does. For this day and age that's pretty good, but let's not kid ourselves thinking he's suddenly the Lebron James of hip hop. To do that he needs to outsell Wayne, Drake, Eminem and Jay. He won't even see as many albums as Ross has. Now be gone owner of poor musical taste, and take that pitiful Miami Vice reference with you.

    People are dowloading these days man!! everybody is saying game's album is a "flop" and "he aint going to make much $" off Jesus Piece you crazy! the album cost half a million 2 make from start to finish. his worldwide album sales is nr 350,000. (350,000 x $10)- you do the math! even when he's paid his due to interscope and overhaeds he still winning! youve also gotta remember the album only been out since dec 11( some of the other cats in the chart had theyr albums out in 6 month ago. Compared to Game's usual numbers it not quite up there but in terms of being a flop would you call making a couple of mill for spitting a few 16's- a flop! wish i had his job!! plus the album is fucking DOPE!! better than than 50's SNITCH BITCH IMMORTAL i guarantee!!

    • is that so

      So only reason why Fifty and Em can go plat these days on a short time period is because their stans buying their records. Shiiitzs. Fiddy goes plat, because Dre and Em on his record. He would do same numbers as all the other rappers, if not for Em and Dre.

You look like a dummy. "on an album that isn't even platinum either." 2 Chainz album isn't even platinum either, so what you saying? Kendrick is much closer to being platinum. You're a certified idiot.

    Kendrick just might go plat. He would be the first rapper in years to have done so. I think Drake and Wayne were the last ones to do it. Of course Eminem is going to go multi plat like always, rap just aint selling records like they use to. Now that I think about it rock music don't sell that much anymore either. Only that uninspired Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber croc pop is still selling. smh

      Nas has moved 354,000 units at a time when very few rappers do. Look at the hype Meek Mill and Wiz Khalifa had and he's out selling them. For a while Chief Keef had more hype than anyone and he only recently crossed 100,000. Long story short, Nas has done very very well.

      He also hadnt dropped a REAL album in about 4 years..He dropped a prison album, No Mercy, and this sold more than that..He's still 1 of the top selling artist & he is not just a rapper, but a BRAND..He acts and does plenty other shit

      ^^^^^ Then you are a close-minded, stuck-in-the-90s nigga.

      All of this new wave are trash. The Drake and Kendrick group all trash. I respect Cole.

      Wow. You do not realize how fucking stupid you look. Kendrick and Nas are not trash. 2 Chainz is trash, Future is trash, Nicki Minaj. You're either trolling or a fucking close-minded hater. GKMC is just that good. Get your head outta your ass, stop making excuses, and realize people really like the album, nobody's overrating it. You niggas want a great hip-hop albumin a time when almost everybody is dropping sub-par to garbage shit and when Kendrick comes along and drops a good album, you want to shit on him. Fucking hypocrites. Kendrick is one of the best new school rappers out now. My question to you, gsonii; what new school rappers do you like, huh?

    • gsonii

      Kendrick is trash just like Nas that bullshit CD he just made is so overrated. I went on metacritic and everyone of the critics gives it a great score in unison. That is how you can tell that he is someone that the media is trying to create. The only things that everyone can agree upon are things that we are forced to agree upon like you gonna die. They are trying to make this little fuck into something he isn't that is why I can't really fuck with him.

    • ^

      Are you fucking kidding me? Everything you said is a bunch of bullshit. Nas is one of the greatest emcees of all time. Illmatic was a game-changer that influenced generations of lyricists, like Kendrick Lamar.

    • gsonii

      Nas is trash. T.I. is better to my ears and 2PAC was just totally superior. Jeezy is also better. Snoop is better also. Nas has never created anything in his life or gave others a platform to do what they do. Legends don't exist people speak them into form by continuing to mention them. Nothing Nas has ever done has been legendary they just continue to speak of him in that way. Illmatic is overrated it has no diversity and did not change anything. It is not the greatest album either. He needs for people to say that about him though.

    • ETK

      OP you're a retard cause 75mil is for much more than Tip's contract. It's a 360 deal AND there's the whole Grand Hustle movement included into it. even if his LP ain't going gold, who gives a fuck nigga... Tip didn't whore himself out with mainstream singles to make it happen. & he just got out of jail so chill

      @GAYsonii, nigga I agree Nas is a little bit overrated but he's far better than TI whom is ur favorite rapper. And he has the BEST hip hop album of all time. I don't know what the fuck your hoe ass is talking about. He is still top 5 DOA. Ask anybody and they would say the same. Go jump off a bridge head first pussy

    • gsonii

      Nas is a overrated bitch nigga. I bet Kelis told him about his self before getting away from his ass. Nigga you ain't shit, your just a prostitute to be toss around by wanna-be elitist type.

      Gsonii is a Nas lover. Always bringing Nas into the argument and shits. FUCK OFF faggot

    • gsonii

      Bitch stfu. Trouble Man is a good album and nowhere near his worst. He has not even dropped his 2 biggest singles yet. When you been in the game 12+years sometimes you have to take different routes. If you are calling T.I.'s numbers a flop wtf does that say about Nas?

  • edward

    chief keef need to put out a hot single for the summer to make that 250,000 for interscope

    • D2

      ^^ OK sweetheart, then prove I'm lying. C'mon, I'm waiting.

    • D2 ain't in no London

      D2, it's too bad you can't afford a Sound Scan report to verify your lies....lol

    • D2

      ^^ It's obvious that he's trolling. I live in London and I guarantee you NO ONE has ever heard of this negro around here. And I really want to believe no one in Asia, Africa or South America bought his album either.

    • Anonymous

      where did you that number 283 000 from?? do foreigners really listen to chief keef like that? i find it very hard to believe he sold 160 000 copies of that shitty record outside of the USA...i thought it was bad enough that 123 000 people dumb americans bought it.

      chief keef need a stop rapping

    • Domestic sales aren't the the sum

      He has already sold 283,000 worldwide and that's what Interscope counts.

    • AI the Answer

      umm.. Jesus Piece took me by surprise. I was surprised he could create a bigger piece of shit than the RED Album. it's sad how far that dickrider has fallen since his first 2 albums

  • Anonymous

    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are doing great they are also number 1 in the uk charts lol

  • F New York City!!!!!!!!!!

    First the haters criticize artists for sounding like New York City rappers, then they hate when the artists have their own style. Black people from New York City are worst than racist white people in the south.
