Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 6/2/2013

The-Dream's hit-and-miss sales streak continues with "IV Play." Now signed to a major label, Kid Ink continues to be a permanent force with "Almost Home EP."

This week, there were two new additions to the charts. For the second year straight, Los Angeles, California emcee Kid Ink tackled the Top 200 digitally, without marketing or promotion. Now backed by RCA Records, the longtime indie artist struck again with his Almost Home EP, scoring a Top 30 debut.

For the second time in a row, Radio Killa/Def Jam Records singing/songwriting sensation The-Dream missed the Top 10. His fifth studio album, IV Play, debuted at #16. The album features husband-and-wife duo Jay-Z and Beyonce, although on separate songs.

LL Cool J and Snoop Lion both left the Top 200, with Authentic and Reincarnated, respectively. Eve's Lip Lock hangs on at #192 for a third week, despite strong criticism of her fourth solo album.

The-Dream Gives The Charts A Little IV Play

The-Dream has had a complicated history with the charts. His 2009 sophomore album, Love Vs. Money earned a #2 for the longtime Def Jam artist. His acclaimed debut, 2007's Love Hate, was a #30 debut, though reaching gold in subsequent weeks. Following last year's #29 debut of Terius Nash: 1977, The-Dream swung upwards on the rankings with this year's IV Play.

His fifth album entered at #16, selling over 20,000 first-week copies. Premiered for free stream on VEVO before release, the album features G.O.O.D. Music roleplayers Big Sean and Pusha T, as well as Jay-Z, Beyonce and 2 Chainz.

Kid Ink Is A Quiet Sales Force

2012 DXnext artist Kid Ink continues to out-sell many of his peers. The Alumni Music Group artist who recently signed with RCA Records, continues to find commercial success in everything he releases. Following 2012's Top 20 debut of self-released Up & Away, the L.A. artist hit Top 30 with his digital EP, Almost Home.

The star-packed six-song EP features French Montana, A$AP Ferg, Meek Mill and Wale. The project sold over 15,000 first-week units as Ink gears up for his major label full-length debut.

      Jay Z was signed to roc a fella but had distribution from priority. Nas was signed to columbia records period. No ifs ands or buts. You act like you can go to the future when you can't. Montanas reviving hiphop and if you don't like it, listen to your pop crap from Gay Z and Nas. I haven't heard shit about Montana's mixtapes until i looked them up. Joc will come back and fathers and sons kiss all the time on the lips. Ive seen this happen all the time. BTW, maybach, bad boy, and Interscope are independent labels by your logic.

    • Anonymous

      They were not signed to those labels. All of those niggas you named (Montana, Wayne, Ross, Birman, 2Chainz) are some of the worst rappers ever. Montana will never be bigger and his old music will be forgotten in time. Montana destroyed hip-hop that Nas and Jay-Z kept alive. His mixtapes were overpromoted. Yung Joc will never come back. Fathers and sons do not kiss on the lips EVER and neither do mothers and daughters. THAT'S GAY AND INCEST BEHAVOIR. You didn't see shit. Also, 50K is respectable for an indie artist, but it's terrible for a major label artist like French. If he had done at least 100k 1st wek, that'd been respectable. This shit is a major flop.

    • dentaldamboy

      And 50k copies is respectable at least. If he sold 25,000, it may be a flop but it's holding on well.

    • dentaldamboy

      So columbia records and priority records you consider to be small indie labels? Montana is right up there with Wayne and Ross and Birdman and 2 chainz as some of the greatest rappers. Montana will make more music and his old music will be praised. He's reviving hiphop dragged down by nas and jay z in the east. Montana's mixtapes were underpromoted, Yung Joc will come back and fathers and sons kiss all the fucking time. I've seen them. I've even seen daughters and mothers kiss on the lips. IVE SEEN THEM IVE SEEN THEM I FUCKING SAW!!

    • Anonymous

      Everything you say is a bunch of bullshit and a bunch of lies. Tyga is the only pop artist I mentioned. Some of them are great rap artists who make better music than French. Stop making excuses. 50K now is terrible. Montana is done. Critics did not say the same thing they said to French about Jay and Nas, who were on small indie labels. They were always game changers fro the best. French is not a game changer; he brings nothing new to the table besides commercial/trap bullshit and is making hip-hop worse. Montana's mixtapes were major hyped-up. Montana is not gonna grow; he'll get worse and go into obscurity in a few years. Yung Joc is NOT relevant today; when was the last time you heard from him? Never. He hasn't made a hit in years and if he releases new music, he'll flop worse than French. You've never seen fathers and sons kiss; just gay men. YOU get a life and stop trolling the internet.

    • dentaldamboy

      Sorry Chief Keef: Sold bout the same as montana.

      Mac Miller: Pop Slaughterhouse: Pop Chief Keef: pop Tyler: Pop MGK: Sold about the same as Montana actually. Tyga: Sold about the same as Montana Cudi: Pop K Dot: Pop j cole: pop Nas: pop Game: Came out during the holiday season Lupe: Pop Macklemore: Pop B.O.B: Pop Most of these niggas are wack ass pop, which sell more than hiphop right now. And 50-60k copies is not bad in today's environment. Montana will come out fine. I don't care what label he's signed too. These critics said the same thing about Jay Z and Nas (who by the way, had their albums released on major labels like Priority and Columbia unless your definition of small independent label is every fucking label out there (dumbass)) yet later, they became game changers (for the worse by the way). French will be a gamechanger for the better. Montana did release mixtapes but were not as promoted as those other niggas. Montana can only grow from here. Yung Joc is relevant today. Once he release new music, they will be huge hits. I have seen fathers and sons kiss all the time. Get a fucking life dumbass.

      Again with the lies. Jay and Nas were on small indie labels when their first albums were released. Montana is signed to three big labels: Interscope, Bad Boy, and MMG. Excuse My French is not a game changer like Illmatic and Reasonabe Doubt because it brings NOTHING new to the table, just the same commercial/trap bullshit that's out now. French is never going platinum ever; his career continue to plummet and his only hit song will be Pop That, which had Ross, Wayne and Drake on it. I don't care how low albums are selling right now, 50K is a disappointment when other artists are doing bigger numbers. French has also been releasing music for a long time just like Kendrick, Drake, and 2Chainz, so you're just making excuses. You're wrong about everything, especially Yung Joc, who's now irrelevant with no #1 hits. Father/son kissing is not normal, why do you keep spreading that lie?

    • dentaldamboy

      Jay Z had priority records to distribute his first album who was a big company at the time. Nas was on columbia records, also a big company. Montana's album will be a game changer over time. No one was talking about Illmatic or Reasonable doubt as game changers until much later. K dot also said he was influenced by Lil Wayne. Although Montana's album did get guests and hype, albums just aren't selling anymore, which makes the 50k copies sold normal, if not impressive. K dot had released music for about 8 years including one album and many mixtapes before GKMC. Drake sold a lot because of an ep from ymcmb, the company I work for, and plenty of mixtapes. He also sold back when albums were still selling. 2Chainz also had been releasing music for over a decade now. Montana is going platimum, even if it takes 5 years and will always be around for as long as he lives. Yung Joc is still a very successful artist, getting no. 1 hits. BTW, fathers and son kissing is normal.

      Everything you say is lies, dentaldambitch. Nas and Jay Z were on small independent labels when they dropped their debuts and theuir shit were game changers. They're great artists who impacted and influenced an enitre generation of rappers; they're your favorite rapper's favorite rappers. French selling 50K is terrible when he got a lot of hype, promotion, and a gangload of features and you got Kendrick selling 241K, Drake doing 450K, 2Chainz doing 147K, etc. Montana is never going platinum and will not gonna be around for long time, not matter what your stanning ass say. His career won't be like Jay and Nas, but it'll be like Yung Joc.

    • dentaldamboy

      Im just telling you the truth. Jay Z and Nas did bomb with their first albums and that's back when albums were still selling. So 50k today is more impressive today. Besides, as long as Montana keeps music, he's doing fine. BTW, you act like you love every single piece of jay z or nas's work. There has to be music from nas or jay z where you hated it.

      French an Laughterhouse are fucking horrible for some of the same reasons (horrible production, cornball lyrics) and some different ones (Laughterhouse have A LOT more lyrics) but think about this... Laughterhouse split x 4 French x 1 leaving aside all the music biz contractual bullshit which means BOTH these flops lost $$$ for the label. (All that tour support comes out their pocket too, which is why you didn't see Laughterhouse on the road in the U.S. after the album came out.) Verdict: they BOTH suck, the BOTH flopped hard.

    As an accountant at YMCMB, I can confirm that I met with timberlake and he told me he bough 750,000 albums. So in reality, 2 20 is going wood.

      Fake, in addition to timberlake buying 750k which is cheating, sales error caused an additional million copies that were meant to go to wayne's album. Timberlake would be going wood if not for those unfair advantages. That's why he's called timberlake. Because that shit technically would be going timber which is wood.

      even if he did buy 750 that album is nearly 2x plat you moron so it would still be plat, not wood as you say

  • dentaldamboy

    I told you all that my boss, Birdman, guaranteed there would be consequences for Dream's duet with Pusha T. Here is the proof. Pusha T will flop just as badly.

      french admitted to buying 100 copies for himself and having bad boy buy another 1000 copies. so you cant take that number and probably multiply it by 5-10

  • freshyboi

    If Gucci Mane sold 2500 last week and 2500 this week how is he still at 2500 total? Check your facts! Or maybe the 2500 people that bought it last week all returned it and got their money back????

  • Fresh 2 Def

    im telling yall. broken record. but what, is this week 9 for me to tell yall. weezy outsold kendrick. what a disappointment for lamar. he was suppose to be the next lil wayne and flopped harder then weezy did when he was 15. weezy was platinum at 15. kendrick at 29 isnt even close. even french montana who yall said flop... sold more then kendrick. so who really flopped? ya bish!

      wayne will never be platinum again.. ever

    • brown

      fresh 2 def stop leaving comments under your comment with different names to make it seem like people agree with you cause that was a stupid comment you made at first you must be 12. theres no way wayne sold that much don't believe the hype on that wack ass cd. and Kendrick been out for way longer and the only one I see up there close to platinum

    • Anonymous

      I know one thing for sure. At 15 Kendrick wasnt kissing 40 year old men on the lips and calling them Daddy.

    • foreal

      Fresh 2 Def... like the above said, what matters is the total album sales. Kendrick came out a few months ago, and weezy... a few weeks ago. Do you know what Kendrick was doing at 15?!? i dont, but it was probably what most 15 year olds are doing which is going to school. Weezy was blessed to be able to release albums on a major label at 15. You cant compare the opportunities that people had at a specific age. That is like saying Bow Wow is better than Kanye, Nas, Eminem, and Jay Z because he released an album at age 13.

      just gonna keep ignoring the numbers on the right which shows kendrick sold more than all these niccas

      It doesnt have to be a lucrative/profitable move, It just helps to make It look like the artist isnt flopping.

    • tommy

      I doubt it because that wouldn't be lucrative at all
