Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 4/28/2013

Snoop Dogg's "Snoop Lion era" debut "Reincarnated" scores a Top 20, while will.i.am has his highest charting solo album to date with "#willpower."

There were two new additions to the charts this week from Hip Hop, both of the major label variety. will.i.am's first solo album since announcing the Black Eyed Peas hiatus grabbed a Top 10. The veteran Los Angeles, California emcee/producer/singer's #willpower is the second of his four albums to be backed by Interscope/A&M Records.

First he was Snoop Doggy Dogg, then just Snoop Dogg, and now, in his 20th year releasing albums, he's Snoop Lion. The Long Beach, California O.G. emcee dabbled with Reggae, Dance and some new political views on his twelfth studio album, Reincarnated. With a new sound, name and look—as well as RCA Records backing for the first time in his lengthy, label-journeyman career, Snoop grabbed a Top 20 debut.

Kid Cudi's Indicud avoided the sophomore-week slump, and sold over 31,000 more units, beating out both of the new releases charting this past week. G.O.O.D. or not, Cudi still sells great.

will.i.am Has #willpower And Staying Power

Over 20 years removed from a deal on Eazy E's Ruthless Records as a producer/Atban Klann member then known as Will 1x, will.i.am has become a global superstar. After transforming the Black Eyed Peas (what the Klann would later evolve to) from a major label-backed underground Hip Hop group to Dance music juggernauts, Will has returned to his solo pursuits. #willpower actually beat out longtime L.A. Rap peer Snoop Dogg's (as Snoop Lion) Reincarnated, by nearly 8,000 first-week units.

A long way from his 2001 Lost Change LP on BBE Records, #willpower further delves into Dance and Electronic. While Juicy J and B.E.P.'s apl.de.ap make appearances, the album is driven by guest shots from Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and the Britney Spears-assisted hit "Scream & Shout." Will still self-produced the entire album, with a few points of assistance.

This effort is over 30 places higher than will's last album, 2007's Songs About Girls, easily making it the multi-talented artist's best solo outing to date.

Snoop Dogg Is Reincarnated As Snoop Lion

Twelve albums into his career, Snoop Dogg seems to have made his biggest experiment to date. The Doggfather to Tha Dogg Pound traded the khakiks and perm for braids and beanies with his latest. Reincarnated featured extensive involvement from Diplo's Major Lazer outfit, as well as Reggae/Dancehall guests including Mr. Vegas, Mavado and Collie Budz.

Like #willpower, Reincarnated also pulled from the mainstream. Miley Cyrus appeared on this Mad Decent/Vice/RCA debut for Snoop, as did Drake. Longtime Snoop Lion producer/protege Terrace Martin and Akon were two of the few past collaborators to carry into this LP. The album sold less than half of the first-week units Snoop delivered in 2011 with The Doggumentary. That effort was a Top 10 debut for the S-N-double O-P, and his last project in a deal with a revived Priority Records and his own Doggystyle imprint.

    "'SNL' is Comcast (NBC & Universal)" Nobody cares idiot. The original point was SNL has been poorly rated for years. Of late they've been posting higher numbers, but it's just so cliched for a rapper or even an actor to do that show. I don't know anybody who still watches it.

    "No, selling out is when you sign to a major label and change your artistic goals (influenced by the major label) in order to sell more records, and you conform to that and do it. That's what selling out is" Selling out is when you hawk products, or appear on shows that normally don't cater to rappers. IMO, Kendrick is overexposing himself. I'm pretty sure the 11 pm late night crowd on TV isn't DVR'ing SNL just because Kendrick Lamar is appearing. On the streets, they think he's a clown anyway, so it's either pad your wallet and lose your cred, or fall back and not let people know exactly who you're just yet. That's how you achieve longevity.

      One album doesn't mean he's outselling all other hiphop acts. Is he outselling Eminem? Jay Z? Of course not cause his success is a fluke, designed to get losers like you with limited taste to support his false movement, which by the way took 10 years to achieve.

    Hip Hop started in the streets and it will forever be in the streets, the fact of the matter is. Nobody in the streets is listening to Macklemore, only kids from the burbs. i don't care how lyrical he is, it's fuckin wack in the streets. Only people in the urban community (not suburban ) should have say to what is dope hip hop and what isn't, this is NOTHING special. Kids from the suburbs tend to think just because a rapper is "lyrical" that makes them great! 2Pac , Too Short, Eazy E, and many many others weren't the most complex rappers but they are more legends, why? Because they kept it street. These underground, and lyrical cats can rhyme as many words out of the dictionary that they want and it is still wack in the streets why? Wack subject matter, wack hooks, wack beats, nobody wants to listen to any of that. People wake up, street hip hop (biggie, 2pac, big l , meek, jeezy ) any rapper that reps the streets, YES even Gucci will have more respect than these lyrical cats, because hip hop IS the streets, and if the streets aren't feelin it, than it doesn't matter how versatile you are, wack is wack no matter what! Bawse!!!!

      Kill yourself for the bullshit you said. The hood/streets don't buy; they just download them. Why do you think a lot of rappers don't make music for the hood anymore? Because the hood/streets are just lazy bums who don't have a life. Hip-hop is bigger than the streets/hood; it's universal. The most successful rappers understand that street music alone doesn't sell. The streets don't decide what's dope or not; hip-hop heads dictate that. Fact of the matter is, nobody wants to stay in the ghetto forever and hip-hop is evolving, whether you like it or not. So get your close-minded head out your ass and learn some shit.

      1. Look at the sales. Kendrick did pass Nicki's album. 2. This isn't about money, so that argument is useless. 3. Nicki didn't conquer the sophomore slump; PF:RR didn't even outsell Pink Friday. Kendrick, however, did conquer the sophomore slump (Section 80 is his debut album)

      Nicki's album isn't even platinum. She sold out and became pop. Kendrick is still a better artist.

  • Anonymous

    These numbers are horrible. Snoop flopped. Will I Am flopped. Ghostface flopped. Hate to say it, but a shitty Wayne album at 400,000 suddenly isn't looking to bad.

      not enough to matter and as of a week or 2 ago Kendrick has passed Nicki's sales and he now has the highest selling Hip-hop album from 2012

  • Anonymous

    Everyone that isn't Kendrick, Macklemore and Kid Cudi are flopping.

    • ^

      You're a fucking idiot. Macklemore is not an alcoholic. Him success still counts, whether he's indie or not. He puts in the work and it paid off; he deserves it. Stop being a hater.

    • Anonymous

      Macklemore the alcoholic is indie, and shouldn't even be counted. His success took ten years, therefore is nothing more than a fluke.

    LOL AT GHOSTFACE, 12 REASONS TO FLOP. I KNOW HE'S ON INDEPENDENT LABEL, JOE BUDDEN IS ON INDEPENDENT AS WELL, WHEN HE DID 30K IN FIRST WEEK, IT WAS A FLOP, NOW YOU ARE SAYING THAT GHOSTFACE NUMBERS ARE OKAY? STUPID HYPOCRITES. LIL WAYNE IS WINNING ANYWAY, HE WILL BE GOLD SOON. TYGA IS DOING GOOD CONSIDERING HE HAS NO SUCH SINGLE LIKE RACK CITY AND THE ALBUM IS UNDERPROMOTED. WITH RIGHT SINGLE, GOOD PROMOTION, IT COULD BE ABLE TO SELL 70-90K IN THE FIRST WEEK AND EVEN GETTING A GOLD LATER. AND SNOOP ALSO HAS GOOD NUMBERS FOR A REGGAE ALBUM. HE ISN'T POPPIN' LIKE BEFORE, SO IT'S NOT A FLOP. MAYBE A LITTLE FLOP. WILLIAM FLOPPED, HOW'S THAT POSSIBLE? ALL THAT SINGLES ON THE RADIO AND HE SOLD ONLY A COUPLE THOUSAND MORE THAN SNOOP WHICH HAD NO BIG SINGLES AND LITTLE PROMOTION. AND I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD - NEXT WEEK, WE WILL SEE HOW R.A. THE RETARDED MAN FAILS TO CRACK BILLBOARD HOT 100.

      YEBO, everything you say is bullshit.

    • YEBO

      PROBABLY YOU EXPECT ME TO SHOUT ALL OVER RANDOM PHRASES LIKE "RAKIM IS WACK" OR "FUCK RAKIM AND FUCK YOU" BUT TO BE HONEST, RAKIM IS ONE OF A FEW REAL RAPPERS BACK THEN AND ONE OF THE FIRST RAPPERS WHO GAINED A COMMERCIAL SUCCESS. I'M PRETTY SURE LIL WAYNE USED TO LISTEN ERIC B AND RAKIM ALBUMS AND RAKIM KNOWS IT - EVEN IN ONE VIDEO, HE PAYS HOMAGE TO LIL WAYNE. MOST OF THE VETS RESPECT LIL WAYNE - KRS-ONE, SCARFACE, NAS, BUN B, EMINEM, SNOOP DOGG AND THE LIST GOES ON. RAKIM IS ALSO A VERY RARE EXCEPTION - HE IS A GOOD RAPPER AND HE DIDN'T COLLABORATE WITH DJ KHALED OR DJ DRAMA. IT'S A CERTIAN RULE IN HIP-HOP THAT EVERY GOOD RAPPER, WHO WANTS TO BE RELEVANT IN THIS CENTURY, HAS COLLABORATED WITH DJ KHALED. RAKIM IS THE SHIT BECAUSE HE NEVER MADE A SONG WITH KHALED AND YET HE STILL HAS A SKILLS.

      joe budden sold out and had lil wayne on his single trying to do it big. the fact that the nigga is on love and hip-hop and still only pushed 30k is pretty funny

    • Anonymous

      Fuck off you faggot. If it was just about record sales, then Lil Wayne is better than Rakim. Of course you probably believe that anyway.

    • mkkg

      The reason people say Joe Budden flopped is because he put out more promotion, singles and videos than Ghostface but i personally dont think he flopped considering how poor slaughterhouse sold as a group

    We can assure you that at YMCMB, no artists flops. We get laid by women each night so thats how we also measure our revenue.

    • Anonymous

      Stop with the lies. Nobody at YMCMB are getting laid by women. INAHB2 didn't even go gold. Billboard counts ALL sales and all those sales say Wayne's album isn't even gold. Seriously, get a life instead of trolling the Internet and making up lies.

    • dentaldamboy

      Our YMCMB members get laid by women. Our assets are unaccounted copies of I am not a human being 2. The album actually went diamond yet billboard doesnt count sales outside of target and best buy and itunes. Most of the albums are sold in rap stores.

    • Anonymous

      Everything you say is bullshit. Every YMCMB artist that's not Drake or Nicki Minaj flops; hell, mamy of them don't have an album released. None of them gets laid by women, but men.

      I how delusional you are. Macklemore is not flopping; he's still outselling Wayne. Wayne is not doing strong numbers. He'll go gold at the most, but he's not going any higher. Tyga isn't gonna see any big boost in sales. He won't go gold; he'll be wood.
