Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 11/24/2013

Eminem regains the #1 spot with "MMPL2," Yo Gotti enters the Top 10 with "I Am" and Hopsin debuts in the Top 200 with "Knock Madness."

This week on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 lands back at #1, reclaiming the top spot from Lady Gaga, who earned the slot last week with her ARTPOP release. Although it is now in its third week and still at #1, Eminem isn't the only Rap artist charting. This week, Yo Gotti's I Am album breaks into the Top 10, Drake falls out of the Top 10 for the first time this year and Hopsin knocks himself into the Top 200 with Knock Madness. Here's a look at some of the week's movers and shakers on the Billboard Top 200.

Eminem's MMLP2 Is Back At #1

Last week, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 was momentarily dethroned from the #1 spot by Lady Gaga's ARTPOP release. However, all of that has changed this week, with Eminem reclaiming the top spot for the week. Em's most recent release sold approximately 120,000 units this week, helping its total sales count hit approximately 1,124,000. Eminem's supporters also helped other albums in his discography chart this week. The Marshall Mathers LP, for instance, lands at #135 with 3,900 units sold this week and The Eminem Show lands at #153 with 3,200 units sold for the week. Eminem's Recovery also strikes at #168 with 3,200 units sold this week and Curtain Call lands at #197 with 2,800 units sold for the week. Eminem's various projects have also been important for the rapper's wellbeing, according to the Michigan emcee. During a recent cover story with Rolling Stone, Eminem spoke about how his music has impacted his life. "I'm as happy as I can be, I guess," Eminem says in the interview. "Hip Hop saved my life, man. It's the only thing I've ever been even decent at. I don't know how to do anything else. I think they have a word for that — what do they call it? Idiot savant?" 

Yo Gotti's I Am Lands At #7

Yo Gotti'sbreaks into the Top 10 this week with I Am. The most recent Yo Gotti release sold 48,000 units, landing at #7 on the charts. Yo Gotti has been vocal about his artistic versatility. During an interview with HipHopDX, Gotti spoke about how some of that versatility can be found in his new music. "I’m gonna rap to the situation," Gotti said. "Guess how many niggas I heard say, 'Man, you stepped it up on that song with Wale on his album?' That shit is a trip like I don’t do this shit [laughs]. You feel me? I’m rapping for the occasion. If I get on a song with Wale, guess what? I’m gonna make sure that my shit is tight enough to keep up with Wale. If I get on a song with J. Cole ['Cold Blood'], you gone see the same thing. I got J. Cole on my album, and when you hear his song, you gone see what’s poppin’. If I’m getting on a song with a certain kind of nigga, and the shit is supposed to be simple, it’s gonna be simple. That’s what it’s supposed to be. If I’m on a song where the bars and shit are supposed to be stepped up, then that’s what it’s gonna be." 

Drake's Nothing Was The Same Falls To #14 

This week, Drake's Nothing Was The Same falls to #14. It is the first time Drake's most recent project has fallen out of the Top 10. Last week, Drake landed at #9 with this project, which is in its ninth week overall. To date, Drake has sold more than 1,129,000 copies of the album. This week, Drake moved more than 30,000 units. Drake is currently on his "Would You Like a Tour?" run, but he may be ready to unveil new work soon. This week, Drake revealed that he is slated to release new music before the year ends. "Not an EP, but maybe a blog thing like how I did 'Versace,' 'The Motion,' all those in one night," Drake said during a recent interview with VIBE. "I’ll probably do 'Trophies' and three or four other records." 

Hopsin Breaks Into Top 200 With Knock Madness

This week, Funk Volume's Hopsin cracks the Top 200 with his new album, Knock Madness. The project lands the Panorama City, California representative at #132 after Knock Madness sold approximately 4,000 units for the week. In October, Hopsin spoke with HipHopDX about what the album means for his career and how it may impact his critics. “People say I say the same things over and over,” Hopsin said. “But in reality, I haven’t released an album in three years, so people haven’t really seen what I can do or who I am. Everybody in my XXL Freshmen thing, I think, did their thing. I haven’t come out with mine yet. This is my time. From all the hype you’ve ever seen from Hopsin, this is that moment of truth.” Knock Madness features guest appearances from Tech N9ne, SwizZz and Dizzy Wright, among others.

    "theres a difference between shipped and sold" Shipped... Sold... Returned to a bargain bin... Fact remains NM sold more than Kendrick in 2012. Numerous sites prove this, so there's no need to take it personal. It's just the way it is.

      GKMC was released at the end of October 2012, Nicki's album came out 6 months earlier in April! Of course a pop star sold more records in 8 months than Kendrick did in 2! He still outsold her at the end and put out the better album that will still be played 10 years from now.

    "Are you kidding me? Nicki's album didn't even sell platinum" For the week ending April 10, 2012, the album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 253,000 copies in its first week.[40] This marked Minaj's second number-one album in that country following her last studio album Pink Friday, which peaked at number one in February 2011. On June 22, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of at least one million copies in the US.[41] The album sold 785,000 copies in 2012 in the US,[42] making it the best selling rap album of 2012. Game over.

  • Anonymous

    "Indie is more proftable if you are touring and own the rights" Most indie artists don't own anything, dunce boy. For every Macklemore, there are thousands more who are signed to small, indie labels, push next to no units, and end of broke cause they can't afford to even go on tour, and when they do it's small little joints where they make peanuts. Drake is making millions and can more than afford to pay his bosses what is owed to them. The major label system works if you're marketable. Someone with your second grade education should be able to understand that.

    "Kendrick's debut basically outsold most other rappers' debuts and don't even bring up Drake because this isn't about him at all" For the span of a few measly months when there were not many notable albums released. Wow! Stop honoring this man like he's your father. His hype died. Accept it and be gone troll bait.

    Hopsin only did 4,000 units?!? Dame must be at home shaking his head while typing #stillmovin on the FV Facebook page, well along with some other quote that he thinks will power his ego a bit more and allow him to feel like he administered change in many young fan minds. This sounds deep and a hint that I don't like Dame, but in fact, he is just that simple to understand for real. Lol

  • Da Realest

    All you new hip-hop fans (15-25 yr olds) have horrible attitudes about life and music. You don't even discuss the music like we did back in the day when Run DMC, Nas, Wu-Tang, Rakim, Biggy, Pac, etc. was running the game. ALL you guys do is have your little online race wars and cry about Eminem vs whoever or Jay-Z is illuminate or who's "real" or not. Worst of all you think there is one way to rap or one style to floss. You guys are too myopic, boring and ignorant to call yourselves "hip-hop" fans. It was never like this in the 80's and 90's. Black and White kids grouped up and pushed for better race relations. We were too smart to suck on the FOX news or CNN teat. This is what's frustrating the pioneers of rap music and new well rounded rap artist. You FANS, YOU FANS, have lost ALL perspective.

  • Hopsin's Fanboys...

    ...are intense. He's only been in the spotlight since like 2010 and everyone is acting like he's an already tried and true legend. I'll admit he has some bars, and has made a handful of good songs but my god, get off his dick. He literally had to make a song to tell you all to stop riding his dick so hard. He's got a long way to go before he has proven himself to be more than a trendy gimmick. Gazing at the Moonlight was like 6/10, Raw 8/10, and Knock Madness 7/10. The guy doesn't even have a classic yet. Jesus.

  • drake runs rap

    eminem is a pop star he makes pop music he doesnt even make a complete hiphop album like drake did. Drake didnt need features from rihanna skyler grey and other pop artists to sell big he did it all by himself. Eminem needed to make a ton of pop singles and songs with annoying pop accents to sell. Drake did those big numbers all by himself while eminem didnt. DRAKE IS STILL THE KING OF THIS RAP SHIT. ONCE THE OLD GEEZER EMINEM THE WASHED UP POPSTAR RETIRES DRAKE WILL BE KING OF RAP FOR EVER. DRAKE WILL PUT UP THE BIGGEST NUMBERS AND IT WONT EVEN BE DEBATED WHO THE FACE OF RAP IS.

      Rick Ross is top 10 right now Anyone that hates him because hes fake (hes not, mind you) is a dumbass. Its the most tired and false excuse. And the people the claim hes fake just point to the CO pic. They have no other evidence. As IF that photo proves anything. All it proves is that he was a CO. It doesnt prove that he didnt slang. Plus anyone that know anything knows that COs are dirty. Its only the 16 y/o white suburban kids that claim Ross fake. REAL NIGGAZ fuck tha Bawse. If you dont like him for his music, its fair because peoples tastes are different. But the all his songs sound the same argument is tired as well. First, that argument can be used for almost any rapper. Secondly, does Sixteen sound like BMF? Does Free Mason sound like Im Not A Star? Does 911 sound like Amsterdam? Does Diced Pineapples sound like Fuck Em? Nope, because Rawse is the king of diversity. Bawse!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Correct, it's #1 in 2012, though the way Kendrick keeps selling, in the long run he still has a chance of regaining the spot :) In 2013 there will be no competition, Eminem will surpass Drake next week, and he almost did it this week, just 6000 copies behind ;)

    "If Drake did that Control verse instead of Kendrick" Depends on what he said and who he said it about. I think he should have said something to Common, but he let his success do his talking for him which was a better strategy.

    "Let's talk about the major debuts of rappers out NOW and most of them never sold as much as Kendrick did" That's only because most people steal music and you know it. It's not an even enough playing field to say where Kendrick is right now. Even if Drake is his only competition, that's still double platinum status to contend with there.

      Now you're just making nonsensical excuses. You're just rambling about bullshit because you know I'm right. Kendrick's debut basically outsold most other rappers' debuts and don't even bring up Drake because this isn't about him at all. You have nothing, so stop the hate and take a seat.

    I only have one question Where the hell did most of you learn to write? 90% of the people who post on this site have absolutely no concept of writing in a lucid and direct manner. Have you ever thought about using commas, periods, question marks, or any of the other syntax and grammar tools that have been adopted by the english language to help articulate your mindless rhetoric and beefs? Heres a suggestion If you really want someone to get your point, do not write in your street slang. It isnt near as effective, and it is very hard for the reader to comprehend (not that most of you really have anything important to say anyways). You are disgracing yourselves and the people who helped raise and mold you. You are disgracing the hip hopsters you are trying to defend by writing things that dont convey a real messagejust like every one of Chingys songs. hahaha Final thought Use some sense when you write; you may just school some niggas. yes I am an avid hip-hop listener and have been for many years. I have seen it evolve into the crap we see from most artists today. Test my knowledge if you must.

Did you ask him how he knows what Wale pulls in when he doesn't know Wale? How about his "theory" about an independent artist, but an indie like E-40 who owns businesses and can make $100k in a week or Jim Jones, who made millions on an indie label and sold minimal copies, or even Nipsey Hussle, who cleared $100k selling 1000 copies independently and Jay Z buying 100 within 24 hours exist. Since he knows so much about every rapper's finances, ask him about contracts. Who has a 360 deal Quote-Man? What are the mechanical rates and publishing percentages Quote-Man? Is it a P & D deal Quote-Man? What's the length of the deal Quote-Man? What are the budgets and costs of the album so you know when you see the Wednesday numbers you and only YOU, know who's banking or not Quote-Man? That's when you'll see him bitch up, toss some lame insults at you whilst thinking he's above you, yet he's looking like the consummate jackass babbling and rambling on all along.

      Jay's first verse is a masterpiece "Do you fools listen to music or do you just skim through it?" One of his most memorable lines is from that verse Jay was not bodied. They both brought their absolute best to that track.

      @Truth, that's the truth. It was an Em production and thus an Em song in real terms. I've always said Jay's verse was also good. Plus very few people, perhaps only Eminem could have done better than Jay Z in that song. It was Em's moment of magic.

    • Nick

      You gotta be a fan to say Royce wasn't bodying Em. Let me not say he was bodying Em, But his verses where way better in my opinion. Bodying such a harsh word. Its sort of like how Nas gassed niggas to think Em completely Bodied Jigga. Sure Em had better verses on Renegade but he didn't completely body Jay, his verse was just better. People forget the fact that Renegade is more of Eminem style then Jay-Z anyway. Bottom Line, Royce was bodying "Bad meets Evil" and killed Em on mostly every track the sameway Em killed Jigga on Renegades. Its not a big deal cause Royce is still trying to get on and Em been there and done. Basically Royce still spit like he is hungry and Em spit like he already ate.

I mean, you could virtually name any really big artist who's doing big numbers and they have a significant female fanbase. Because women are idiots and only just by what they find attractive, not actual talent. Even soulja boy is still around because of his female fanbase.You'll never see a dude buy a chicks album just because he finds her attractive, but women do this type of shit all the time.

    "Do the math - he's 100% independent... that's all his cash" The only way being independent is profitable is if you're moving units. Macklemore is the one exception out of thousands who make peanuts because their profits often get eaten up by their expenses because guess what, genius. Everything comes out their pocket. The only other exception would be Mac Miller and that's more so because he has company sponsors that net him most of that money. It says something about Drake's popularity when he can be worth $30 million despite having to shell out to his bosses. The up side, he's building a career while Macklemore can thank his lucky stars for allowing him fifteen minutes of geeky fame.

    Rick Ross might NEVER have the success of EM or 50and definitely is NOT lyrically a better artist than EMTeflon Don sure as hell was better than RELAPSE, Before I self Destruct, Curtis, ENCORE.man I swear everything FIF and EM have done on their past few albums was garbage compared to Ross Say what you want to about him bein fake or wuteverin the end its all about the quality of musicand the quality of ROSS' shit cannot be denied!

    "He's caking $6/7 a album. Plus the single money is crazy" Good for him, cause he's going to need it once he reappears and can't write a hit song to save his life. Drake makes plenty off guest verses, and can still make millions despite his bosses getting chunks of his sales. You act like that's unheard of. Macklemore's afraid to go to a major cause they wouldn't put out his cupcake music.

      Are you joking about Macklemore? He ain't afraid of going to a major. Why would he go to a major label where he'll get screwed over and turned into an industry product when he's making more money independently than many rappers on a major? You are an ass-backwards thinker. Also: "once he reappears and can't write a hit song to save his life" Yeah, keep dreaming because your hate won't make that happen for real.

    Damn Eminem only been out for two weeks with mmlp2 and he already passed up jay-z and Kendrick Lamar in sales. It took jay-z a month to go plat. It took Kendrick several months to go plat. It only took Eminem 2 weeks. He use to be able to go plat the first week but that was when he was at his best. The fact of the matter is it doesn't matter what eminem comes out with he will always have multi platinum albums. Even Relapse sold over 2 million copies domestically. Relapse was garbage. Even Recovery and MMLP2 from what I understand aren't nothing compared to his first three albums and he still can live off his past enough to sell multi platinum albums at a point in time where going gold is now considered a good achievement. Im black and even I am abl eto admit that eminem must have struck a cord with alot of people in order to keep doint this repeatedly. People say it's because he's white that he sales so much, but what about the influx of other white rappers that are out? Why aren't they selling(except Macklemore)? It has to be because of what he did in the past and or just the name... Eminem. He's not what he use to be but I guess his impact keeps him afloat enough to be as relevant now as he was in the 90's with SSLP. Thats amazing.

    "he must get all those features for free i dont see how else he could afford the beats and features with sales like that" I realize you have down syndrome, so I'll try and make this quick and painless. Khaled works for a label that is worth over a billion dollars. Khaled isn't personally shelling out for these artists. His job is to get them on songs which he does and which often go platinum or gold. There's also digital sales. Ringtones. Touring. Stop thinking about the music industry as this little lemonade stand, and start looking at the bigger picture. 12 million singles sold. I don't care who you are. That's impressive.

    "Kendrick's album sold more than the recent albums from Nicki Minaj, French Montana, Ace Hood, Tyga, and everyone on MMG" NM sold more copies than Kendrick last year. That's fact, tiny. And you can continue listing Ace Hood and Tyga until the end of time. At least Ace has albums under his belt. His street cred scares a little softie like Kendrick who can't even stand up to his own boss.

      "Took him 7 months to do what Drake did in a month and a half. That's to be expected." Again, Drake's a pop artist, and pop artists usually sell more than hip-hop artists. "Who else outsold him? Macklemore. Eminem." Just two rappers, one a legend and the other had huge hit singles that blew up this year. "Look back at all the major debuts of past rappers and most were doing 2-3x platinum. You literally weren't worth the diamonds in your fake chain if you weren't at least doing 2 mill." That's the problem with your argument. You bring up PAST rappers. Let's talk about the major debuts of rappers out NOW and most of them never sold as much as Kendrick did. "You bring up Wale like he's homeless. Dude makes $50k a night. French Montana had a platinum single." Don't kid yourself, you fucking cheerleader. Wale ain't making that much. And French's puny platinum single (which only happened because Wayne and Drake were on it) doesn't mean anything, especially when other rappers have platinum singles, including Kendrick.

What a clown. The Black Hipster Kendrick Lamar was bound to have a certain level of success just like the other artists that Dr Dre has executive produced, artists like Snoop, Eminem, 50Cent and Game, 95% of the rappers in the game would love to have Ross career, he's a CEO of his own label with 4 Gold albums and has made the Forbes list 5 years in a row but more importantly he's done records with true legends like Nas, G Rap, JayZ, Kiss, Carey, Bun B, Badu, and people your kind has never heard of.

    Eminem is a more polished artist, but MMLP2 is not 280X better than Knock Madness like these numbers suggest. What we have here is a case of Eminem reaching out to the younger pop audience who are less likely to illegally download free music while a majority of Hopsin listeners are 20-something college students who probably can't even afford to buy his album. That and the millions of dollars that were spent promoting MMLP2. Numbers never lie, but they don't always tell the whole story either.

      I don't think anyone with any critical thinking skills would associate sales with quality. Sales reflect popularity and money, not a whole lot else. You claim Eminem is reaching out to younger pop audience, while Hopsin to college students. That is the same demographic. College students ARE the young pop audience. Go to a college campus and kids you'll see dorms plastered with Justin Beiber and Drake posters, people swearing by Macklemore's message. Now here is the real difference. Eminem is a mainstream entertainer of worldwide fame. He has sold more albums than any other Hip Hop artist worldwide. He has six multi-platinum records dating back to 1999. Hopsin is releasing his second independent album to a small, but dedicated, fanbase. His first two albums did not chart due to small sales. In reality, Hopsin has a long way to go to compete with the top tier underground artists (Pharohe Monch, Tech N9ne, even Mac Miller) , let alone heavyweight mainstream ones such a Eminem.

And Outkast and Beastie Boys over 22 million. Hate him or love him, Eminem sells records. Do you really think Marshall Marthers LP 2's sales over Knock Madess is because of media articles? Do you really think Hopsin's lack of ability to compete with Eminem or Jay-Z is due to lack of media coverage? I just don't think you have the slightest grasp on the music industry.

    As a young money groupie bitch, with no accounting skills I can confirm that drake actually only sold 2 copies. Birdbitch fucked me in the ass til I bought one and then he bought the other.

      and khaled can keep crying over the fact he's sold less than 46,000 in over a month with every big name in rap on his album!

      When Khaled can get a successful album/single without any assistance from big names, THEN he can claim to be big.

      When she releases 7 albums and has a handful of gold and platinum singles then she can claim dominance over Khaled. Until then she can keep crying over the fact she's sold 46,000 in two weeks.

    hop went from 2 to 7 in a few hours on itunes, biggest flop of the year

  • OUCH!

    I am trying to understand how hopsin ended up in this weeks chart? His album came out yesterday so his weekly numbers should come out next week.

    • OUCH!

      @gimik313 could be, if i remember correctly RAW was only a digital release. Just like TDE used to do to avoid printing covers. making CD's etc. I wouldn't be surprised if Funk Volume did the same.

      They prolly sent in the preorder numbers. I wondered about this at first as well. Its not instores yet. For a couple weeks Dame said. It's only being sold on myfunkvolume.com for now besides Itunes n other didgital spots. So 4k in preorders independently isnt bad. His next week numbers should be higher though.

    • OUCH!

      That always happens to every album, I know stores that get the album a week earlier but they never count them as early projections. Something is not right.

      early sales, a few stores probably sold it a day or 2 early when their shipments came in
