Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 6/9/2013

The-Dream's "IV Play" and Kid Ink's "Almost Home" hang around the charts, as does will.i.am's "#willpower," while the Beastie Boys' "Licensed To Ill" reminds us that Rick Rubin is a master.

It was one of the more quiet weeks on the charts in some time.

With no new additions coming from 2013 Hip Hop releases, Kid Ink's Almost Home EP fell 48 spots in its second week at digital retail. Still in the Top 75, the RCA Records-backed Los Angeles, California emcee is breathing down the 20,000-sold benchmark with his second retail effort in as many years.

Def Jam Records singer, producer and Grammy Award-winning songwriter The-Dream's latest album IV Play fell 24 spots of its own. The label veteran enlisted Jay-Z and Beyonce and a plethora of G.O.O.D. Music talent for his fifth studio LP.

will.i.am's #willpower Lives Up To Its Name On The Charts

After seven weeks, Los Angeles, California mainstay producer/emcee will.i.am's fourth solo album #willpower is still going strong. A long departure from the Black Eyed Peas' front-man's first solo effort, 2001's Lost Change on BBE Records, #willpower is a Dance album, featuring Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. The Interscope Records project is will's first since the Peas went on hiatus over two years ago.

However, will's partner dating back to the Ruthless Records/Atban Klann days, apl.de.ap, did reunite with his B.E.P. homie on "Gettin' Dumb." This effort out-lasted will's longtime West Coast peer Snoop Lion (f/k/a Snoop Dogg), who released Reincarnated the same day as #willpower.

This album contains gold single "thatPower" and #1 record "Scream & Shout."

The Beastie Boys' Licensed To Ill Never Expires

In a quiet week for new releases, the Beastie Boys remind the charts why they are a true Hip Hop classic. Following Rolling Stone magazine listing it "the best debut album of all-time," 1986's Licensed To Ill shot back into the Top 200 for the second time in three weeks.

The album remains a critical seller for Def Jam Records, with Russell Simmons claiming the album's sales supported the label in the early 1990s, through commercial challenges. The first album by Mike D, Ad-Rock and the late MCA was also their only effort on the label. Producer Rick Rubin, who is currently at work with Kanye West on Yeezus, laced the album with samples ranging from Led Zeppelin to Bob James to early Def Jam icon, T. La Rock.

Following L.T.I., the trio released seven addition studio albums, most recently 2011's Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2. No subsequent effort has out-sold Licensed To Ill.

    Montana ain't worried about nothin, his album sales might be 80k this week but will be platinum by the end of next week. These Niggaz know. Be prepared for a once in a lifetime collaboration, Montana is partnering up with the niggaz from MMG, Ricky Rozzay and Meek Mill, and Ja Rule from Murder Inc. Lyrically no one is on there level, they dont have to worry about nothin. How do i know this? My nigga t-bone is a crip and he went to an exclusive crip party at Ricky Rozzay's house (Bawse) in Miami and Rozzay told him about this once in a lifetime collab which will change the game of rap as we know it. DJ Khaled is producing this track with his super hot beats! Its Bawse, Its Badboy, its Murdah!!! WE DA BEST!!!! Im just letting these Niggaz know.

      sorry to say but the Game flopped. i like the game too so i am not some hating troll. The reason he flopped is because of content. His albums are boring and he turned into another rapper who just wants to be flashy, rap about cars and fancy clothes. It is boring. His first few albums were a "documentary" of a gangster coming out of LA. it was interesting sorry. Now he is marginally successful and his life is about shopping and driving exotic cars aka another Cookie Cutter rapper

    My first time doing coke I did a line right off rick ross sweaty and hairy ass crack. He didnt properly wipe his ass before I did that line, so he had smeared shit all over his butt cheeks. And as the coke went up my nostril, a chunk of poop went up with it, and I coughed and it ended up in my mouth, so I literally ate rick ross shit. But I enjoyed it, it tasted like nutella. From that day on I have sexual fantasies about rick ross, mainly dressing up like a clown and sticking corndogs up his ass then eating them. YMCM 4 Life!

    I just wanted to apologize to everybody here on the comment boards. Truth is, Im not really an accountant at cash money, I dont know birdman, wayne, or drake. I just pretend I do, because it boosts my self esteem, because my mom doesnt let me leave the house, so I need to have an ego somewhere, and this is the place.

    As an accountant at cash money, whenever kanye comes through, I am required to service him whenever he wants, birdman always makes me since i am his bitch. One day kanye wanted a hot plate of fish sticks, and wanted fresh tarter sauce with them. So i shit on a plate, warmed it in the microwave, and jizzed on it afterwards, then mixed it together with mayonaise. Kanye wanted to make sure it wasn't poisened, so I grabbed a spoon and took a bite of the shit & cum tarter sauce, I loved it, and it didn't kill me! Mmm, mmm, mmm, I love eating my own shit. Kanye was feeling horny, and he wanted to fuck kim, but she was in LA cheating on him with brody jenner, fucking bitch. So kanye put a wig around my ass, drew eyes and a nose, then stuck his cock in my tight shit hole, and yelled out Kim's name like the 10 commandments, then he called me a muthafucking gay fish, shot his load in my eyes, the ones drawn on my ass, then fisted me. Kanye broke down and started crying, because the thought of Kim fucking her step brother was too much too handle. Sorry kanye, but that baby is coming out white. YMCM 4 Life!

      thats cool french, but if your album does not sell then you will lose a record contract or sign to some lame label (actually i forgot you are on bad boy. so puff will shelf you and never let you out of your contract for another 5 years). You will then get thrown back into the mixtape circuit and never come out. selling records can decide if you are doing 300 people hole in the wall club shows or stadium shows. The music business is a business and record sales matter. If you are an artist which you clearly arent then album sales dont matter.

      "licensed to III wasn't even rap. I bet you the 9million who bought the album are punk fans who never listen to hip-hop" I call that pioneering. It isnt traditional hip hop but it is still hip hop. The "punk/suburban" fans they got helped hip hop by bringing rap into those homes (similiar to eminem). I think you should sit down and listen to a few Beastie Boy albums. Brass Monkey and Paul Revere are classics. Listen and enjoy

      9X Platinum since it came out.

    • Anonymous

      "all time, 5 mill is great for a hip hop album. if you look at the all times albums selling list, most of those are either rock or pop albums." Yeah, but it's not all-time. That's only counting sales since 5 years after it came-out. How many albums at all sell 5 million after they've been out 5 years? Most albums these days sell the majority of their lifetime Soundscan totals in about 3-4 weeks. Licensed to Ill was certified at 9 million back in 2001. So I would think it's probably under-certified. In fact I would say there is no doubt about it. It was 4x Platinum in 1987 plus it's sold 5.7 since 1991. So that's at least 9.7, not counting anything it sold from 1987 to 1991. Classics keep selling, and you are right- most of the all-time sellers aren't albums that come out and sell a million on Soundscan and then drop off the charts. They are albums that sell every week for years. In addition to some classic rock albums, you have greatest hits packages, and stuff like Bob Marley's Legend. Stuff like that sells at least a couple thousand a week every week for 20-30 years, while you have recent hit albums that sold six or 7 figures out of the gate on Soundscan and then a year later they sell like 50 units.

    • whocaresidont

      No. It's only sold that since 1991. It sold millions in the 5 years prior to that.

    That says a lot about the Beastie Boys having an album still in the top 200 that is nearly 20 years old. Their last album (Hot Sauce Committee pt 2) was dope. With virtually no airplay or advertising, it still landed #1 on the rap, hip hop / r&b, rock, and alternative billboard. I doubt in 20 years any of these cats out today can drop an album with no promotion and still land at #1 because of their fan base.
