Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 7/21/2013

Ace Hood has a career moment with "Trials & Tribulations." J. Cole goes gold with "Born Sinner." Kevin Gates puts on for Baton Rouge, while Mayday!'s "Believers" sets a career best.

For the second week in a row, Jay-Z held the top spot on the charts with Magna Carta Holy Grail. Jay sold just under 130,000 second-week units, nearly double that of #2 artist Sara Bareilles.

Ace Hood's first album since leaving Def Jam Records is also the highest-charting of his career. Trials & Tribulations, Hood's debut with Cash Money/We The Best/Universal Republic Records scored a Top 5 on the charts, a first for DJ Khaled's longtime protege. The LP sold over 33,000 first-week copies, also a benchmark feat for the five-plus-year veteran.

J. Cole crossed the 500,000 mark with Born Sinner, making it the second Roc Nation album to grab a RIAA plaque this month, after the aforementioned the M.C.H.G.

One of Atlantic Records' newest artists, Baton Rouge, Louisiana's Kevin Gates hit the charts for the first time with Stranger Than Fiction. Available for free stream online, the digital-only release features label-mate Wiz Khalifa, and Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J.

Also hitting the Top 200 is Strange Music band ¡Mayday!. Another Florida act, ¡Mayday!'s second group effort in as many years, Believers, follows band-member Wrekonize's own The War Within, which debuted on the Top 200 earlier this month.

Ace Hood Thrives After Five Years Of Trials & Tribulations

In his fourth album, Ace Hood hit record-high's in chart position and first-week sales. We The Best's flagship artist found 2013 success in the single "Bugatti," which features both Rick Ross and Future. Now moved to Universal Republic and backed by Cash Money, the Florida vet continues his collaborative history with Lil Wayne on Trials & Tribulations, in addition to work with Meek Mill, Chris Brown, and '70s Soul/Disco singer Betty Wright.

¡Mayday! Has Plenty Of Believers

Another Sunshine State act, ¡Mayday!, hit the charts for the second time in as many Summers. The group's fourth album, and second nationally-distributed effort with Strange Music, features label-mates Tech N9ne and Stevie Stone, along with Kardinal Offishall, and Kansas City, Missouri independent sensation Irv Da Phenom. The LP includes the video single, "HighRide."

The #75 debut is an improvement from 2012's #86 debut with the critically-acclaimed Take Me To Your Leader.

    So why isn't Mannie Fresh worth $100 million if his production skills were so legendary?

    I have come to the realization that I am the biggest fucking loser on this site. I lie about who I am and what I do. I'm just catfishing everybody. I'm just an average gay male who is 300 lbs and loves eating weiners, I mean hot dogs. I work at the YMCA, and am a janitor's assitant at a dentist's office. I just wish Lil Wayne would date me, it's so frustrating being obsessed with such a hottie like Lil Wayne. I wish Lil Wayne would kiss me and suck me off like he does to Birdman. Birdman is SOOO lucky! UGGGGHHH, I'm so jealous!

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant for YMCMB i can confirm that the sales projections for Rich Gang are false. I have already been up all night in my office at YMCMB Headquarters counting up the pre orders we have had and they keep on rising. at the moment we are one track to sell at least a million copies first. making us certified platinum.

    • dentaldamboy

      I am just joking, i don't really work for YMCMB, I work at the YMCA, and am a janitor for a dentist. I just have some strange obsession with YMCMB and Lil Dwayne. Anyways, sorry for all my lies and stupid, pointless comments. I make things up to feel better about myself.

    • ^^^

      No. There's no logic in what you say, just assumptions. Not liking someone doesn't make them a hater if they have a reason (i.e. if they've committed a heinous act). I do have a reason to not like YMCMB because their music is terrible, simple and plain.

    • dentaldamboy

      The logic Im using is natural logic. Not liking something makes them a hater. You don't have any good reason for hating on ymcmb. You probably secretly like them because you obviously keep listening to their music.

    • ^^^

      No, it doesn't. Being a hater is not liking something for no reason. Not liking something with a good reason doesn't make you a hater. By your logic, anyone who doesn't like reality television are just haters, anyone who doesn't like Will Ferrell movies are just haters.

    • dentaldamboy

      That makes them a hater. Nothing wrong with hating. Just be lucky to get pussy.

    • ^^^

      How about I just don't like him? Just because somebody doesn't like your favorite artist, that doesn't make them a hater, they have a different opinion.

    • dentaldamboy

      Either you love Wayne or you hate him. It is what it is.

    • dentaldamboy

      Obviously, you don't because wayne said haters don't get laid.

      You believe everything rappers say in their songs? Because if you do, you're an idiot. Nobody's hating here.

      You're the bitch here. I get plenty of pussy, so fuck off.

    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 Pac. 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!

He has the hits (Power Trip, Crooked Smile, She Knows) and the substance (Mo Money, Runaway, Rich Niggaz, Kenny Lofton even though it wasn't on his album) Album three will be even bigger and better as he will work with more producers

    • Anonymous

      I hope he doesnt work with more producers. Only if he feels the need to. His production skills improved from his first and It's crazy that he did his whole album except for the interludes.

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant for YMCMB i can confirm that due to the high number of waynes sales his album could not be listed because the numbers were so big. he is already platinum now and got his plaq before kendric lemar. Tyga was just certified gold last week. YMCMB stay winning we have more plaqs then roc nation. jay z album flopped he cant even go plat in one week like real nigga weezy. PAINT THA TOWN EVERYTHING REDDDD. gay-z dont want it with the bloods he gget his ass shot up. as an accountant for YMCMB i can confirm that we invest a lot of money in guns and we are really about this life

    • Dentaldamboy

      I would like to make one thing clear. I am not Lil Wayne, Tyga's, or Birdman's personal accountant. I am a corporate accountant for Cash Money Records. Cash Money Records is always current on its obligations to the IRS and all state and local tax collection agencies. However, I do know that both Wayne and Tyga are very liquid. Any tax delinquencies on their parts are due to the IRS not accepting certain write-offs that they claim. it is not due to a lack of money to pay their taxes. All of these discrepancies have been quickly resolved. In some instances, it is beneficial for an individual to forfeit properties whose market values are below appraised values to extinguish tax liens.

      There you go again lying. You're right about one thing; numbers don't lie and they say you're full of shit.

    where french montana album at?!! That shit sold 234,000 last week and has been certified 10 times platinum

  • dentaldamboy

    wayne only sold 200,000 his first week, jay sold 500,000. that means that my bitchass is wrong about everything. Wayne will never sell more than 200,000 because he sucks as an artist now. His music is terrible and not even the high school kids who used to bump his bitchass music listen to it anymore. As an accountant for young money, i can confirm that we are now going bankrupt. We have no money because no one likes our aritists, they are all terrible and have no good music and no money. No new friends, no new money. that's the motto here.

  • foreal

    amen, weezy is off the list.

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant for young money, I can tell you wayne will never sell over 300,000 copies of an album in a week again. It's because he can't rap anymore, his time is over. Jay z beat his ass when it comes to numbers 500,000 in a week is way more than any artist on our bitchass label can sell. We have no money here, we're going broke fast. Soon birdman will have to file for bankruptcy, I can confirm it.

    I'm hoping Kendrick reaches that 1M before anyone else ESPECIALLY before Macklemore. Honestly, who the fuck thinks Macklemore is any good? No offense, but he's just radio play. And you know damn well he ain't write anything.

    Rich Gang is gonna flop! Mark my words!

  • iamhiphop

    Well, another week, another weekly sales. Numbers don't lie. Hov again proves why he's one of the most successful artists in hip-hop. Congrats to Cole for going gold again, hopefully, he'll get his first platinum album. Macklemore, Kanye, and Wale are doing well and Mac Miller's doing good for an indie artist. Everyone else flopped. I don't know why Ace Hood continues putting out albums when he barely goes gold.

  • dentaldamboy

    As an accountant for YMCMB i can confirm that Ace hood had many more pre orders and his sales added up to 200k first week. for next week we have also been receiving orders for this most anticipated album of the year. so he will be gold in 2 weeks time easy. Wale stay winning he out selling kayne west with his flop album yeezus. next week Richgang will be certified platinum upon its release, and be 2x plat the week following that due to the high amount of orders we have received at YMCMB for this album. critics are saying this album could be the best compiliation album of the decade!! YMCMB stay making accomplishments in this industry.

      You're wrong again, dentalbitch.

    • dentaldamboy

      wayne sold too many records this week so they could not be listed. check billboard, wayne is still outselling your favorite arist and hes on top of the rap game. who else can go plat in 1 week? and have all these plat artists on his label. this album just took a bit longer because he wanted to give the other rappers a chance to beat him but they still failed. he will be platinum next week before any of these rappers and his album came out recently. kendricks had all year and he flopped. same with gay z and yeezus

    • anon

      how does it feel to see that wayne's album isn't even on the charts anymore and jay z has sold more in 2 weeks than wayne has sold in five months? does it hurt your feelings you bitchmade fake hoe?
