Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 4/14/2013

Without a "Rack City" in "Hotel California's" arsenal, Tyga still holds steady on his selling-power. And Eminem's "Curtain Call" greatest hits compilation still sells better than most 2013 releases.

Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience finally gave up #1, after three straight weeks at the pinnacle. Tyler, The Creator's diss-muse Hayley Williams and her band Paramore, along with LL Cool J's homie Brad Praisley assumed the #1 and #2 spots, respectively, as JT fell to #3.

The key addition this week was Tyga. The 2008 DXnext alum's third solo album, Hotel California scored a Top 10 debut, selling over 50,000 first-week units. Strangely, the Los Angeles, California native revealed in the last week that besides a signing bonus, he has not received any royalty checks from Cash Money/Young Money, despite a five-plus year tenure on the label. This is Tyga's second Top 10 debut in the last 14 months. Last February, his Careless World: Rise Of The Last King debuted at #4, selling a similar 61,000 copies at first week.

Tyga Checks Into Hotel California

A year ago, Tyga had one of radio's biggest hits in the DJ Mustard-produced "Rack City." The Young Money artist was breaking mainstream success, and had a headlining tour. With Hotel California, there have not been hit singles. Despite this, Travie McCoy's cousin, who has a Reebook endorsement deal of his own, still sold within 10,000 units of Careless World: Rise Of The Last King.

Hotel California featured a last minute omission of the Tupac-featured, controversially-titled "Hit 'Em Up," but the album still boasts a who's who of Hip Hop, including 2 Chainz, Game, Rick Ross and longtime label-boss Lil Wayne. Producers include Cool & Dre, SAP, and Mars of 1500 Or Nothin'.

The Curtain Rises Again For Eminem's Curtain Call

With Nielsen reports now including catalog sales, Eminem's 2005 greatest hits compilation Curtain Call (The Hits) is revealed as juggernaut at retail. The Interscope project famously includes the live version of "Stan" with Elton John from the 43rd Grammy Awards, as well as premiered rarities and then new-cuts "Shake That," "Fack," and "When I'm Gone." Released in a period when Em's own album-making future was in question, the compilation is slowly inching towards four-times-platinum, and out-selling all but one new Hip Hop release last week.

    "and sold more records independently with no promo than Rick Ross last album" Once again, call me when he sells 5 million albums worldwide like Ross has. When he releases strings of albums that all go gold. That's how you build longevity. What Mackelmore is doing right now is equivalent to Vanilla Ice and we all know what happened to Mr. Ice Ice Baby.

    "key word being USED TO BE" There is no such thing as "used to be". He could relapse any second, but that's his business. As for Gunplay... I don't recall ever saying that guy was any good in the first place, so stick to the topic at hand which was me proving that Macklemore was a drunk. I did, so take your humble pie back to your room and enjoy.

    I thought the Weezy joint was a mixtape. If that is a store album, thats a BIG drop for him and his label. I think they might be wrong, I thought Carter 5 was gonna be his next studio album. Did I miss something? Is the Weezy album a studio album? Anybody? If so, WOW!!! Thats not too good.

    "How are these numbers fake?" His core demo probably consists of people who are either tweakers, fans of American History X, or chain smokers with mohawks. It just doesn't make sense when you apply the hip hop formula of who should be successful. How can Game flop, but this dude succeed with corny songs that couldn't be from anywhere else but the underground?

      Hmm, let's think why Macklemore sold 580k albums... A 4X platinum single that went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, another single that reached the Top 10, a solid fanbase that went out and bought the album. So there you go. Plus, this dude sounds NOTHING like Vanilla Ice. You're just saying that because he's white, which is racist as hell.

    "hes independent and his single is 5X platinum" That's great, but his album still isn't gold which means hip hop albums still rely on singles to make the money. And the part that's funny is I've heard some of this guy's music and I can't believe people are eating it up.

    You YMCMB haters are fucking idiots. Because I'm an accountant for Cash Money Records, I spend a lot of time with Birdman. He told me that in 96, Biggie was looking to get out of his contract with Bad Boy so he could sign with Cash Money. If Cash Money is right for Biggie, then it's clearly the top record label. Unfortunately, Jay-Z and Diddy found out about Biggie's upcoming departure and had him shot. Also, Birdman as always a role model for 2Pac. Most of you don't know this, but the song Hit Em Up was originally supposed to be Split Em Up, a song where Pac brags about fucking Faith, leading to her breakup with BIG. But Birdman explained to Pac that real gangsta's talking about killing people, so that's how Hit Em Up took on such a violent tone. YMCMB for life. We got the game by the clit.

    Big Guwop is the realest rapper and heres why. 1) all other rappers rap about being gangster shooting and killing but they havent done it. 2) Eminem raps about killing he hasnt. 3)Jay z raps in open letter about sending shots he hasnt. 4)Nas raps about how he is a queens thug but he wasn't. 5)Most of the rappers rap about stuff they havent done yet you all support them and say its real rap. 6)When rick ross does it you all claim he is fake and say its fake rap. This shows that hiphop fans are hypocritical and all these real hiphop fan wanna be's are just some unjustified haters whose opinions are just as irrelevent as the swag fag rapper fans. BIG GUWOP KILLED A MAN HE WAS A DRUG DEALER BEFORE RAPPER HE HAS STREET CREDENTIALS HE IS THE ONLY RAPPER THAT RAPS ABOUT FACTS THERE FORE BIG GUWOP IS THE REALEST RAPPER IN THE RAP GAME AND THATS A FACT!.

      Ice cream face has no skills yet he is the realest rapper because he killed a person? (in self defense I might add). Using that logic, Syko Sam is the realest rapper alive because he actually killed his girlfriend, her entire family and named his album "I Kill People For Real". Doesn't get more "real" than that.

Also, Lil Wayne must be the only rapper Tyga has ever heard because Tyga sounds like a lil wayne minime. If i'm looking for a lil wayne song then God knows he has put out enough music that I can find something I like. I don't need this little nerd trying to be him. Do your own thing poser

      Never quite understood the hate Tony Yayo gets... yeah he's nothing special but he's not as bad as people say he us. Only reason he didn't get promoted as much as the rest of G-Unit is 'cuz he was jailed when 50 Cent was hot.

    "but still selling less than a 8 year old eminem compilation album LMFAO" At least he charted again. Can't say the same for Nas.

    • Anonymous

      what do you mean charted again. read the text at the bottom of the article " Each week, HipHopDX presents top albums in Hip Hop/related, and five notables." they picked meek for the hell of it. they could have just as easily switched his name with chief keef, rick ross, nas, or papoose. hes at 180 out of 200

  • V-Nasty is God

    I'm about to break down that list from best to worst. Eminem would normally be #1 but since it's a compilation from 8 years ago, he doesn't count. I'm replacing Eminem with Dirt. 1. Kendrick Lamar (obviously) 2. Macklemore (besides that one hipster ass single, the rest of his is album real as fuck...Wing$/JimmyIovine) 3. Tyler, The Creator (Wrote, produced, did everything all by himself and still his best album yet) 4. A$AP Rocky (not quite Live Love Asap, but it's still pretty good) 5. T.I. (good album but kinda he's falling off to me) 6. Dirt (the shit grass grows from) 7. Meek Mill (first song dope as shit but not feeling that high pitch yelling he calls rapping) 8. Tyga (I see why this mainstream nigga can only push 50k. Garbage) 9. 2 Chainz (why is this old ass no rapping nigga popular again?) 10. Lil Wayne (the next nigga that tries to play this in my car talking about "yo listen to this new lil wayne", i'm shooting in the face)

      albums always sell more first week, tips album been out for months. tygas album wont sell 450k like T.I. so he aint outsell him

  • Eye Control

    Macklemore and Kendrick are my favorite rappers, but Macklemore has been my favorite since I heard gift shop on the radio. They are real rappers and I'm glad they are selling the most. And I'm not racist, I think Macklemore and his partner Ray Lewis make a nice gay couple, hip-hop needs equality. What they do is their business. Macklemore knew he was gay since 3rd grade, so he's been through a lot more than you guys hating.

    Whatever happened to album sales? The Eminem Show is 10x platinum and not to mention non-hip hop like Thriller being 29x platinum in the US alone. Now you are doing amazing if your album hits platinum once, and pretty darn good if you go gold. Back in the day nobody would brag about having an album that was "only" gold.

      "Tell that to Adele. That fat bitch sold 21 million albums and is diamond in the US. You put out a good product people will buy that shit."... ..She sold 21 million albums?!?..WTF.. She's so so, and I do not understand the hype surrounding her. Her voice is nothing special. I guess it's like folks said she has an older audience and other fat white chicks buy her album..

      "Will: Tell that to Adele. That fat bitch sold 21 million albums and is diamond in the US. You put out a good product people will buy that shit." Yeh, but you have to also consider adele's audience. most of them are white fat bitches just like her. Her audience is much older than any rap artist fans and therefore have more money and aren't as computer savy...

      thats also true. most of these rappers put out better material on their free mixtapes and wonder why no one cops the album

    Another 26,000 for Macklemore/Lewis. Holy sh#t! That joint came out in October. Listened to the album a couple times, not sure what the big deal is, but congrats anyway. Em's Curtain call selling that much now is a joke. A greatest hits album? Really? Kinda funny that it outsold Meek this week...lol. Macklemore and Em do have a certain x-factor in common.

    • Anonymous

      Actually, Macklemore has another hit song with "Can't Hold Us" which peak at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100. The Heist is actually a good album if you listen to it; it's different from most of the crap that's played today.

    • g-sus

      cuz they suck. that's why. Em actually has talent. but if he was black he'd be lumped in the same category as other talented artists such as Redman, Luda or Busta Rhymes. High energy, animated, shock raps, BUT with talent. Macklemore been eatin' off the same single for 7 months now. Could be a 1 hit wonder. There's nothing impressive about that album at all.

      Okay u just said a mouth full! He has 2 top 10 singles! Tip aint even have 1... Ball is his only single he put out! Macklemore is on POP stations!... and his album dropped b4 T.I. & Wayne.. If t.i. or Wayne had another "Whatever you like" or "How to love" out right now they would be WAY ahead of Macklemore..They even sold more their first week than him..He's a new artist selling off a single.. T.i. & Wayne are Veterans still selling off of a reputation!

      Wayne flopped. Either way you put it, Macklemore's album sold more than Wayne and Tip's.

      FYI T.I. trouble man has already shipped 500,000 copies so he's basically gold.. Watch in a couple weeks when he actually SELLS that many.. Times r changing & he & Wayne are still selling high numbers... AND they sold more their 1st week than Macklemore sold his 1st week..

    • wouzi

      @foreal true, but he needs to sell extra 50k to reach the gold

    • foreal

      indie money has got to be great. and as far as your list, i wouldnt really call asap rocky a flop. It was his first major album and he has generated a good buzz in the game. TI wasnt a flop, disappointing maybe. I think going gold (half a mill in sales) is not really a flop, especially the way the business is today with bootlegging and online pirating.

    • Anonymous

      Not true at all. He could have easily sold at least 12 if he woulda stayed independent. The only thing signing to young money did for him was gave him exposure. BUT, real rap fans wont fuck with him now bcuz of him dumming down his lyrics and his fans he has now are gonna forget about him in due time. Kendrick is a perfect example of a artist staying independent and being successful then gets the major deal and stays true to his art by not compromising it to appeal to suburbia.

    Notice the statement where the editor says strangly, tyga hasn't received a royalty check. There's nothing strange about it if your album is wack and doesn't sell.

    • Chris Etrata

      Tyga needs to go independent. Even though he will still be wack, he would be much better off independent. He might be selling the same amount of copies but doesn't have to split his share with Birdman, Slim, Wayne, and Mack Maine.
