Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 9/1/2013

Big Sean and Juicy J hit the Top 10 with "Hall of Fame" and "Stay Trippy" respectively while Krizz Kaliko and Goodie Mob also hit the charts with "Son of Sam" and "Age Against the Machine." Justin Timberlake makes a jump back into the Top 6 with "20/20 Experience."

This week featured several new Hip Hop releases debuting in Billboard's Top 200 Albums charts. Big Sean had the highest debut of all Hip Hop artists with Hall of Fame, earning a spot at #3 overall with Juicy J's Stay Trippy arriving right behind him at #4. Goodie Mob also premiered its latest album, Age Against the Machine, landing in the final slot of the Top 30. 

Strange Music's Krizz Kaliko also had a debut this week with Son of Sam, a project that hit at #57 with just under 8,000 units sold. “I always keep titles for songs and albums kind of in the chamber,” Kaliko said during a recent interview with HipHopDX. “And I always wanted to do an album called Son Of Sam because Son Of Sam is just me. That’s what it means. My family name is Sam Watson, so that’s my legal name, my government [name]. To me, it meant more of me." Kaliko has also said that this album will allow him to shine as a solo artist in a different way than he has in the past. "A lot of people know me from Tech N9ne’s music from the last 13 years you know," Kaliko said. "So I’ve always been kind of his co-writer, his sidekick, his hypeman...So I always wanted to do an album called Son Of Sam because it felt like to me a little bit of a liberation, not that I needed to be freed from that because that’s been a system that groomed me into being Krizz Kaliko. I’m giving you more of me and that’s pretty much where the title came from.”

Outside of new releases on the Billboard Top 200, there was also a significant jump from an artist who has been on the charts for months. Justin Timberlake made that leap with 20/20 Experience, an album that currently sits in the #6 spot. This was a meaningful move after being in the #22 spot just a week ago. For JT, the new position in the Top 6 comes after one of the most acclaimed performances at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, where he was the recipient of the Video Vanguard Award. Timberlake followed that show by appearing on several radio stations promoting his next album, The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, scheduled for a September 30 release. The album is set to feature Jay Z and Drake. 

Big Sean Gets More Notoriety With Hall Of Fame

Big Sean's new album, Hall of Fame, landed the rapper in the #3 spot in its first week out with approximately 72,000 units sold. This is a drop from the first week sales of his last effort, 2011's Finally Famous, which sold 87,000 in its first week to land in the #3 slot as well. The Michigan rapper spoke about what Hall of Fame means to him during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX published August 29. "I really tried to step it up on this Hall Of Fame—from the “Beware” video, to “Fire” with Miley Cyrus and the album packaging," Sean said. "We tried to do everything on a higher level and still be ourselves…still be cool. So I’m just excited about this project, and I feel like the next one’s gonna be even better. I’m 25-years-old, and I’m livin’." 

Juicy J Stays Strong With Stay Trippy 

Juicy J's Stay Trippy placed at #4 this week selling 64,000 units in its first week. Juicy J spoke about the album in May, saying that he had many songs to pick from before finalizing the effort. "It wasn't like this person had to be on this one or that person had to be on that one," Juicy said. "I was just doing songs. I would go in the studio and say, 'Let's do a song.' Sometimes I release stuff on the Internet. Sometimes I may save it for an album. It was just done. [I'm at] 75 records right now." Whatever strategy Juicy went with in the end seems to have worked for his fans, helping J land in the Top 5 for the week with this Kemosabe Records/Columbia release. Stay Trippy features guest spots from Pimp C, Trey Songz, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf and Justin Timberlake, to name a few. 

Goodie Mob Rages With Age Against The Machine

Goodie Mob's Age Against the Machine positioned the group in the #30 spot with approximately 13,000 units sold. The group released this critically acclaimed album with the assistance of guest features from T.I. and Janelle Monae, but the focal point of the album remains the group's chemistry after being separated for years. With Cee Lo, T-Mo, Khujo and Big Gipp, the album brings back some characteristics that are reminiscent of the group's early days while also developing new sounds in the process. Cee Lo spoke about this in June 2012, when he confirmed that the quartet was working together again. "The Goodie Mob, we definitely are reunited," Cee Lo said in an interview with MTV. "And we've been working on that album really vigorously and it's coming out very well...I think people are going to be very pleased. You know our core audience and also this new audience that we are aspiring to acquire."

    people that hate on drake get no pussy. Drake made hiphop relevent with weezy. With out lil wayne and drake hiphop would have been dead when wack ass 40 year old camels like jay z were killing hiphop with his garbage music. Drake and lil wayne helped influece swag and the yolo life style. Lil wayne helped make skinny jeans more popular and helped hiphop suceed in the mainstream. That whack ass camel jay z never did shit for hiphop but swagger jack biggie.

He got old, corny and predictable. I still love him and appreciate what he did, though.

    • Rap Fan

      touring and licensing music to films and tv is where artist makes money now not album sales Yes, but if less people bought the album that means less people are interested in him which means less people will see him. When less people want to see him his ticket prices will decrease as well. What that means is Big Sean will make less money this year.

    "Big Sean has to follow the label and in reality his buzz was bigger in 2012 and they waited to long to release this album" The label knew he was going to flop. You can only hype somebody so much before reality sets in. 10 million singles which his name didn't really sell.

      I agree they killed his buzz by witing too long to release his album which was subpar and didn't help the situation much either. I think he's peaked and can't see him getting much bigger than he already is..these numbers may surprise Big Sean but not anyone else.

    it amazes me that no one will buy or even listen to an artist that's been in the game for years, and out of nowhere they get a hit and everyone buys their shit..example juicy j..he used to be decent but his album is noting but rachet and trappin so boring

      what im saying is he sounds dumbed down, like its not even his real voice, flow, or anything, I understand the whole trap shit, but theres a difference making beats that aren't in style right now..three 6 made their shit regardless of what was out, juicy j followed the crowd here

    • THE REAL YEBO

      JUICY J'S ALBUM IS NOT A CLASSIC, BUT IT IS VERY GOOD. AND TELL ME EXACTLY SINCE WHEN IS THREE 6 MAFIA LYRICALLY DEEP AND THEIR LYRICS WERE NOT ABOUT BRAGGING, DRUGS, ALCOHOL, STRIPPERS AND MONEY? AND THREE 6 MAFIA PRODUCERS INFLUENCED (OR MAYBE EVEN STARTED) THE WHOLE TRAP THING, YOU SHOULD NOT FORGET THAT.

      music industry studies have shown that the most effective way for artist promotion is still radio play. kanye didnt have any singles. having your face on the side of a wall in one town for a a couple people is not standard promotion. cole had singles and videos. interviews, all the proven traditional promotional tools. none of which kanye did. its obvious kanye didnt GAF about how much this single sold, otherwise he would shot videos, made radio singles, and all the other proven methods of promoting an album.

      You're right, Kanye's name alone is promo. Cole still has to do promotional shows, the interviews, have the ads & billboards to remind people of the release date. That alone is about 6 weeks of work. Think about it, who did more, because you're answering your own question.

    • kainp

      Sales don't matter for a person like Kanye when he's making 3 million to perform at weddings lol!

    • Nuff said...

      Little to no promo?? are you serious?!? where were you at when he was displayin images of himself on the sides of random buildings playing his music?? where were you when he went on that late night show (jimmy kimmel i think) and performed two of his songs on tv??? If thats not promotion, please, tell me what the fuck is! Kanye had waaaaaaaay more promo than J.cole. Shit, kanyes name ALONE is promo. He just made a wack ass album nobody was feelin. Thats why cole sold more...
