Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 3/31/2013

Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being II" is baller-blocked by Justin Timberlake's "20/20 Experience." Drake's "Take Care" soars up the charts in chase of two million, and Notorious B.I.G. appears.

As projected, Justin Timberlake did not budge—not even for Lil Wayne, with his 20/20 Experience. The former N*Sync front-man maintained a #1 spot, smashing the million-sold benchmark as easily predicted. One of music's biggest stars and centered around a month-long media blitz concerning his health, Lil Wayne landed comfortably at #2 with I Am Not A Human Being II, the sequel to his late 2010 Rock/Rap experiment.

Also making the charts was Strange Music's Punk-inspired duo, Ces Cru. The Kansas City, Missouri natives' first full-length, a self-titled effort, conquered the Top 100. Sixteen years to the month from when he was tragically murdered in Los Angeles, California, one of Hip Hop's lyrical giants, The Notorious B.I.G. also popped back into the Top 200, with Bad Boy Records' Greatest Hits project.

Lil Wayne Says I Am Not A Human Being, Again

I Am Not A Human Being II, Lil Wayne's tenth solo full-length, sold over 200,000 units. That achievement was still over 100,000 units behind Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience, denying Weezy his first #1, since 2010's The Rebirth also came in at #2. This effort did out-sell its I Am Not A Human Being predessor by 100,000 first-week units. However, that 2010 effort was a digital exclusive upon release, with no physical CDs until later.

Wayne's latest featured YMCMB's Drake, Gudda Gudda and throwback Boo (of early '00s Cash Money duo Boo & Gotti), however Mr. Carter opened up the personnel to include former lover Trina, Juicy J, Gunplay and even Soulja Boy, among others. This album includes early glimpse "Love Me" and street effort, "Rich As Fuck." The Deluxe Version includes the Young Money & G.O.O.D Music olive-branch effort, "My Homies Still," with Big Sean.

Drake's Take Care Climbs 50 Spots, Nearly Crosses 2 Million Mark

As the rollout for third studio album, Nothing Was The Same is underway, Drake's 2011 sophomore, Take Care continues to tackle the charts. The effort shot up to #75 from #126 the previous week, more than doubling its previous week sales. The Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown flagship release is on the heels of 2 million certified sales. This far exceeds Drake's 2010 debut, Thank Me Later, which crossed the 1.5 million mark, just over a year ago.

    YOU SPENDING TIME HERE ACCUSING WAYNE OF BEING GAY!!! DO YOU EVER THINK NAS MIGHT BE GAY OR EMINEM OR LUPE!!!

    • YESSIR

      LOL FAGGOT ASS NIGGA!!! IVE SEEN KIDS KISS THEIR DADDIES ALL THE TIME!!! I JUST CAME BACK FROM A WALK WHERE I SAW 3 FATHER KISSING THEIR SONS BY THE MOUTH FOR A SECOND!!

    • Anonymous

      Dude, stop lying to yourself. Wayne don't care about you; you don't have his number. Also, kissing another man on the lips is gay, no matter what. Don't use the father excuse; fathers and sons never kiss each other on the lips. Stop trying to justify that bullshit.

    • YESSIR

      BTW, KISSING BIRDMAN ON THE LIPS DOES NOT MAKE HIM GAY. IVE SEEN KIDS GIVE QUICK KISSES TO THEIR FATHERS ALL THE TIME!!

      FRANK OCEAN DON'T CARE ABOUT YOU!! I HAVE WAYNES NUMBER ON THE OTHER HAND!!

    • Anonymous

      Frank Ocean stay true to himself, so I respect him a lot. Wayne, however, doesn't stay true to himself. He's a poser puts on this act to make him look cool, pretending to be a blood and a skater when he's not. Also, he IS gay; he kisses men on the lips. Don't deny it, it's true. And I don't care about his bank account; that's some groupie hoe shit. Money doesn't make you a better person and musician. Justin Bieber is worth more than anyone at YMCMB and he's a piece of shit. Why are you so passionate to defend someone that doesn't even know you? He doesn't care. Get a life and stay away from HipHopDX.

    • YESSIR

      FRANK OCEAN IS GAY AND YOU NEVER BITCH ON HIM!!! MEANWHILE, YOU BITCH ON WAYNE FOR "BEING" GAY (EVEN THOUGH HE'S NOT) BECAUSE YOU BITCH ON HIS MUSIC!!! HE'S MADE MORE IN A DAY THAN YOU WILL EVER!!

    • Anonymous

      Nothing you say is true. There's a lot of evidence that shows Wayne is gay. Nas, Eminem, and Lupe aren't gay; there's no evidence to suggest that they are.

    "Yes, he is" Why would Birdman hold back on his bread and butter though? I can see him exploiting people like Tyga, but Wayne is too valuable to the label to be cheated out of money, especially when plenty is coming in.

  • Idiot HHDX Users

    75% of everyone commenting here are a bunch of fucking dumbasses, trolls, and dickriding stans. I mean it's pathetic and irksome to see a bunch of bullshit arguments and stanning on one fucking page. Rappers like The Game, Chief Keef, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, and quite a few others have flopped (or are in the process of flopping), so deal with it. Macklemore's album is selling because of a bullshit radio single, which may go diamond. YMCMB (excluding Drake) and MMG are going downhill and losing popularity. Kendrick Lamar is becoming vastly overrated. Pusha T and Big Sean are losing buzz. Eminem, Kanye West, & Jay-Z still sell albums, but they fell off in terms of quality. 50 Cent's next album will most likely struggle to go gold despite a few popular singles. Rappers like 2Chainz, Trinidad James, and other fuckers are popular. Hip hop has gone underground for the most part, and the culture has been tarnished overall. Need I go on? Stop being fucking delusional cock gobbling groupies. Also, these artists do not give a shit about you or me, only their morbidly obese pockets and bank accounts. And why the fuck are you replying to no-life trolls like YESSIR, dentaldamboy, the Ja Rule dicklover, and the rest of the trolling crusty cunts you idiots? You are entertaining to them you stupid tools. Stop being their dickbait. I swear, most hip hop fans are embarrassingly hypocritical and mentally challenged.

    • Huh?

    • @Donnis mac

      "The Smoking Section and Nahright have Hip Hop fans that are civilized and actually know music." I've lurked there along with quite a few other sites a couple times. I'll take your word. "The nonsense you see here from the young male Caucasian demographic (you're one of them) doesn't mean all listeners are the same." This comment is nothing short of bullshit and ironic. I am a young black female, for your information. It's funny how you suggest that I shouldn't put everyone here in a box unfairly (which I wasn't trying to do since I didn't generalize when I said "MOST", rather than "ALL"), yet, you put ME in a box with the rest of the dumbass faggots. Fine hypocrisy right here. And we already know that all listeners are different. Merely I was pointing out the fuckery on THIS site. Also, if you look anywhere on the web, most people who claim to be "hip hop fans" and whatever the fuck else act retarded as fuck. You have named a few sites that are decent such as Nahright and The Smoking Section. I'll also add Okayplayer and perhaps a few other sites to this list. However, try going on YouTube (hip hop/rap videos), HotNewHipHop, WorldStarHipHop, HipHopDX, UndergroundHipHop, AllHipHop, and several other sites for a feast of inane comments and arguments. Like you said before, not all listeners are the same. "To be VERY candid, you're witnessing your brethren and their destructive, deceptive nature. By all means visit the other two sites and see the difference." Just did, and they look more civilized than this website so far as you claimed....

      Wayne is not the most successful artist alive; I could name more than 1000 artist who are more successful than him. Most of those 100 hits aren't even his songs, but songs he was featured on. Big deal. Eminem sold 90 million albums, the most of any rap artist, and Jay-Z has 12 number one albums, the most out of any artist in any genre of music.

    If ban women from buying shit, Wayne's album will lose 80% of sales. Women consistently fuck up all forms of music, not just hip hop. Look at the people who get shine now? Drake? Lil Wayne? Justin Bieber? I mean, you could virtually name any really big artist who's doing big numbers and they have a significant female fanbase. Because women are idiots and only just by what they find attractive, not actual talent. Even soulja boy is still around because of his female fanbase.You'll never see a dude buy a chicks album just because he finds her attractive, but women do this type of shit all the time. Ban woman from music, and you've fixed a good chunk of the issue!

      TRU STORY^^^^

    • Doubl Negative

      @Anonymous # 2; In the Nineties, rap was a more clandestine, recondite, subterranean scene and the only way you'd heard about acts like Double XX Posse, Cella Dwellas, YZ or the Beatnuts would be if you purposely seeked those artists out by listening to the appropriate radio shows or reading certain magazines. The Internet era has revonlutionized all aspects of life, including hip-hop by making the world a smaller place, and so called "niche" artists like Oh No, Demigodz, Chino XL should be accessible to anyone who reads these pages. I was only aware of Durag's LP because of DX, and thousands of other readers visit these pages daily, so they have no excuse of not being au fait with said artist. If you visit metal forums, the kids on there have respect for the scene that preceded them and there seems to be solidarity in that culture. Our culture though, is disparate and people within it categories themselves in little parochial pockets, usually along racial or age lines. We should view all B-Boyz as belonging to one homogenous community, but unfortunately the average DX commentator seems so far away from me intellectually they can't respond to me using rational thought, and it makes me wonder how the US is a super power when so many of its inhabitants haven't grasped basic grammar and are intellectually impotent.

      How is Eminem a 'parasite to this culture'? Is it because he's white by any chance?? And Justin Timberlake isn't even part of hip hop culture so what are you on about. And those albums aren't selling because nobody besides you, me, and a couple other people know who they are.

If you drop a classic, I'll download it just to make sure, then take my ass down to Best Buy and get a copy.

He doesn't make as much money as he once did. Add to that the amount he owes in child support and alimony, and you have a rapper who is now living album to album to sustain his lifestyle. As for Pusha T, Malice has stated multiple times that neither of them sold any drugs. Sorry to ruin your little fantasies. Saying that Pusha T is a deal just becuase his manager is in jail for distribution would be like saying everyone who Henchman managed sold drugs. Now on to schoolgirl Q.

And how you gonna hate on Schoolboy Q? You don't work for YMCA you faggot! Stop lying!! You ignorant moron livin your mom's basement!!

      What the fuck are you talking about? You don't work for YMCMB like YESSIR and I do. You don't break bread with the team? You don't eat out of the trough. Stop lying. You're just an angry welfare recipient. I don't know whether you like bankrupt Nas, Schoolgirl Q, studio gangsta Pusha Terrance or snake Jay-Z but all of them ain't shit compared to my YMCMB family. Wayne took a charge for one of his boys. No other rapper would do that. You soft bitch. You probably celebrated when Big and Pac got killed.

    Jt, it's all about the marketing.....he been gone what 5 years? Then comes back like he's jayz or eminem does almost a mil a week, naw homie all that was done by marketing not a hit song. No one was begging for a Jt album and he did like 2 songs within the recent year and no one was really checking for it....so you pick a big day like the Grammies or Super Bowl to "comeback" .....so yeah I'm not gonna hate better him than nicki or French montony.... But naw I'm not giving him a Susan boyd or a Adele props because his was all about how he market himself rather than having songs that's playing on all genres of music

    • kaiyinrei

      what none of you idiots get is that Justin Timberlake's album is the best one out at all right now. Tha fuck y'all talkin bout demographics for. don't you get it you stupid fucks, all the music you like is complete shit! Escpecially that fucking lil wayne. Nas is the best alive, then Em, then ME! bitch! Yall ain't even listened to that jt and yall talking bullshit. kill yo self

    • Yoil

      MARKETING???? I LITERALLY HEARD ABOUT JUSTIN'S ALBUM ONE WEEK BEFORE IT CAME OUT! Usually albums are promoted for months and months before they came out! It has nothing to do with marketing. It's because it's Justin Timberlake and he hasn't released an album in years! That's why! He's remained relevant through other things like acting, SNL, shit like that. There was very little marketing for his album.

    • NONO

      "other artists do" "audience demographic"

    • NONO

      His marketing was no bigger than what a lot of other artists The single drove most of the anticipation. His demographics simply knew they were already going to support him.

  • doggfather

    what about papoose?!

    • bizzalls

      I know, man!! And his album was actually good! IT had that NY sound to it!! If they had only dropped this album when he was hot it woulda done well. Same with Saigon's album. They fucked up bad.

      i assume the numbers were so embarassing they gonna do all you pap fans a favor and not publish them

  • JT

    Broke ass haters will come on here and talk shit bout Weezy's numbers but the fact is he sells more than ur favorite rappers and got more money than most of ur favorite rappers. Wayne dont give a shit about you broke asses he just keep gettin his stacks.

    WEEZY FLOPPED, AS EXPECTED

    one more week and Macklemore will have sold more than Rick Ross if he hasnt already

  • Good Gang

    Drake about to go 2x platinum hating niggas!!!

  • dentaldamboy

    The combined sales of the next albums released by Common, Pusha-T and anyone on Wu-Tang will sell less than Wayne's first week. So you YMCMB haters can keep hating, but my favorite artists are getting rich and getting lot's of pussy while your favorite rapper is going broke. YMCMB, we got the rap game by the clit.

      ^^^^^this nigga right here! Lmao!!!^^^^ wayne wasnt raised on no damn streets, he been rich since he was 12 bcuz of baby. And the nigga dont write most of his lyrics. Gillie the ki d, drake, nikki manaj, young berg,are jus a FEW of many rappers that write for that corny ass nigga. He do a lot of drugs bcuz he a miserable and depressed. Bitches fuck him ONLY bcuz of his money and fame... Drake has always been privileged and had everything basically handed to him.... and tyga a street nigga???!?? HAAAAAAhaaaaa!! dude has had a easy life. upper midle class poot butt ass nigga. Im from la, trust tyga aint no G.

    • dentaldamboy

      No one on YMCMB compromises thier articist integrity: Wayne was raised on the streets...currently he does a lot of drugs and gets lots of pussy. Drake was always very ambitious and always wanted more than a career as a child actor. He worked hard and has acheived a lot in his life. Tyga is from the streets of compton. He's dealt drugs and caught some bodies but now focuses on drugs and women. All of my guys rap the truth.

    • dentaldamboy

      only qualification required is you have to take birdman and mack maines BBC's (big black cocks) in the booty

    • dentaldamboy

      They recruited me on campus at LSU, where I graduated with a B.S. in accounting and actuarial sciences...with honors.

    • Josh

      Who cares...why sacrifice artistry for money?

    • This dude

      How can I apply to join YMCMB as a rapper?

  • Fish

    What about Papoose???? How'd he do?

  • hiphophead

    Search for the Coldest MC, is it you? www. searchforthecoldest. com/

  • oh

    I Am Not A Human Being 1 was not his Rock/Rap experiment. That was Rebirth.

  • Chris Etrata

    This has since been taken down but I did stumble upon XXL Magazine giving it an M rating. That doesn't happen with studio rappers. Wonder why it has been taken down?

    • Chris Etrata

      I wonder if Wayne read the XXL review and decided that, rather than striving to do better, he had a tantrum and then had birdman threaten XXL if they didn't change or take down the review

    • Anonymous

      yeah i found a link for it and when i clicked it wasnt there birdman and mack maine handled that shit and made it go away. checkout the pitchfork review, they nailed it

    Kendrick Lamar is still going platinum!!!!!!

  • Anonymous

    OKay so the lil wayne album is on top of hip hop, cuz J T is a great artist but the guy is not hip hop,

  • Burmy

    How did Nacirema Dream do? How many copies did that sell?

  • udikkema

    kendrick won wayne lost

  • real nigguh

    JT platinum already? Got damn

  • 777

    I doubt Tyler tops the charts as I expect JT to hang on for at least another week. Tyler will probably be somewhere in the top 5 though, I guess.

  • Chris Etrata

    WAYNE FLOP!!!!

    • Chris Etrata

      If it was a rookie like Kendrick, you are right in that it would be considered good sales but Wayne was coming off an almost million debut of Tha Carter 4. How is that not disappointing at least?

    • Anonymous

      yeah if it were any other rapper i would say they did some good sales but this is lil W so yeah its a flop
