Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 12/8/2013

Eminem remains the leader in Rap album sales while Drake falls just out of the Top 20.

This week on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 drops out of the Top 5, Drake's Nothing Was The Same falls from the Top 20 and Yo Gott's I Am lands just outside of the Top 50. 

Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 Hits #6

Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 sold approximately 84,000 units this week. Its #6 placement is the lowest for the project in five weeks of availability, placing it behind releases from Garth Brooks, One Direction, Kelly Clarkson and Duck Dynasty's Robertson family. Eminem's work has been praised by many recently, including Saigon, who celebrated the rapper's ability to have personal reflections in his lyrics. "When Eminem came out, we knew he didn't like his baby's mother," Saigon said in an interview with MTV earlier this month. "We knew he hated his mother. We knew his daughter's name was Hailey. We knew so much about his personal life without him being on a reality show. His music was almost a reality show. That made us feel like we knew him more than had he just been a dope rapper. It kind of made you feel like, 'I like this kid because I can almost identify with what he's going through.'" 

Drake's Nothing Was The Same Strikes At #23

In its eleventh week out, Drake's Nothing Was The Same falls out of the Top 20 and lands at #23. This week, the project sold more than 23,000 units. In total, Nothing Was The Same has surpassed the platinum marker, with sales adding up to more than 1,231,000. Drake has also been in the headlines recently for his work outside of music. The OVO rapper was recently added to the Jordan brand team. Though his official title and role have not been reported, the public received confirmation of the Jordan-Drake deal earlier this month. "He's home," Jordan's verified Twitter account said in an update recently. "Welcome the newest member of #TeamJordan: @Drake" 

Yo Gotti's I Am Lands At #56

Yo Gotti's I Am is in its third week of availability. The project sold more than 11,000 units this week and landed at #56. Recently, Gotti spoke with HipHopDX about the confidence that he has regarding his work. "I think I’ve just been blessed to stay consistent and keep dropping hot music," Gotti said in an exclusive conversation with HipHopDX. "If you do that, this shit speaks for itself. If you put out good music and just be a good nigga, then shit comes to you." In total, Yo Gotti's I Am has sold more than 78,000 units to date.

    When someone says they wrote something, that implies that they created a TV show or movie. Glover is one of many writers on both those TV shows, so to imply that he writes them is false and misleading. Now if he was directing them that would be different. Then you could chime in and have the opportunity to be right for a change.

    Man haven't been on here in a bit, but nothing has changed. Hip hop is still dead, most of these cats think going platinum is some big deal. I remember when EPMD would go gold in a week with no airplay. I remember artists saying fuck the radio and selling 2 million. Damn man this younger under 35 year old generation let hip hop die!!!! Yea, yea I know everyone who is 20 is going to say fuck you hip hop is alive it's just underground, but dawg...back in the 80's-90's the underground sold millions as well. PE wasn't mainstream, KRS wasn't mainstream. The younger generation is just all about image and not about the hip hop culture. At least I can say I was part of a time when hip hop was alive and well, it was really a lifestyle, not just something you listen to like it is now. I miss you hip hop!

    reasons why drake is better than eminem: - makes songs with his family while eminem disses his mom and later apologizes - outshines eminem on forever "last name ever, first name greatest" is seen everywhere - take care is better than anything em has made, including his 1st three albums - drake talks about real things in his life while em makes up shit about killing and rape - all of drake's work is critically acclaimed while em receives mixed reviews for his work - his shoes are awesome while em's are awful - drake is nominated for lots of grammys while eminem isn't drake owns eminem! #NWTS #OVO

    • Matthew Mitchell

      - that's just your fucked up opinion, i like the way how you try to urge people to agree with you, i like how he disses his mom and then apologizes - Em killed everyone on "Forever" - I'd say Em's worst albums (in my opinion) Relapse or Recovery killed everything Drake has made - Eminem says about everything, for every taste, sense of humor in rap is a very important thing - Because critics hate him, and some people (faggots with their long forelocks listening to Gangnam style, or simple faggots) used to hate him. I just can say that he's sold more than 115 million records and that's it - What? Shoes? that's some stupid shit - Eminem has 40 Grammy nominations, while Drake has 13 I'll copy it

      Many more lies from youngsta, the idiot. 1. Who cares about Eminem dissing his mom? NO ONE. He apologized and moved on. Doing songs with family members don't mean anything. 2. If you really believe that Take Care is a classic/masterpiece, you're obviously riding Drake's dick hard. That shit is not a classic/masterpiece. 3. Eminem ain't scared of anybody. His albums will slaughter anyone else's albums. 4. Internet memes have nothing to do with music quality and they change trends.

    • youngsta

      i love how you list songs that eminem dedicates to his family when i clearly said "makes songs with his family". drake had his grandma on "look what you've done" and the one with his dad will be out soon. eminem only had hailie on "my dad's gone crazy". that's it. and when you diss your mom, whether it's for attention or not, will always give you a bad look, no matter how many apology tracks you make. if you can't say take care is a classic or masterpiece, then you're clearly riding eminem's dick so hard. eminem was scared to go against drake, that's why he released it late. yes, internet memes. it's 2013, soon 2014, nigga. social media is what everyone's using now. get with it!

      I wouldnt go as far to say that Drake is better than Eminem cause thats far from the truth, but he is the 2nd best rapper out right now when it comes to sales. His Nothing Was The Same album has outsold Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Kanye West's new albums. The only album that has outsold Nothing Was The Same was Eminem's MMLP2. Thats a pretty big leap for an artist who's only been in the mainstream spotlight for 4 years.

    • Light Skin Drake Lookalike

      Are you for real Drake hasn't even release a song feature his dad yet so stfu.. Eminem has dedicated many songs to his family and the daughters he adopted, mockingbird, airplanes II, going through, deja vu His young brother was mentioned in cleaning out my closet, my mom, headlights Eminem wrote songs such has Hailies Song, Doe Rae Ma, My dads gone crazy, when i'm gone, just for Hailie If you say the marshall mathers lp isn't a classic or a masterpiece, you clearly riding drakes dick to hard The only reason eminems isnt nominated for many grammys is he didnt release the album before the grammy deadline to be considered a nominee.. Internet memes HAHAHHAHHAH WHAT FKN RETARD YOU ARE

    • youngsta

      but did you see how he saved the girl from falling and caught her lunch at the same time? drake stays true to himself, even while acting. eminem would've let the bitch fall, then rape her and slice her throat, then shove the lunch up her pussy and eat it out with a bit of mustard.

    • youngsta

      - many songs? he only has one with "my dad's gone crazy". and it really doesn't matter after you dissed the person that brought you in this world. - if eminem killed forever, then why don't you see his quotes on t-shirts and internet memes? drake killed eminem. and rapping fast doesn't make you the best. - mmlp can sell infinity records. take care is still the overall better album. - drake talks about his real life: money, women, fame. eminem talks about raping and killing bitches and we all know he's never done it. - in order for albums to be true classics, they need to be critically and commercially acclaimed, and drake has both for all his work. em may have the sales but his work always gets criticized. - drakes nike shoes are way better than em's ugly looking 2.0's. anybody with fashion sense would say that. - right now, drake has many nods while eminem is only nominated for wack ass berzerk. lol drake still owns eminem! #NWTS #OVO

      -Eminem has made many songs with his daughter.. -Eminem killed kanye, lil wayne, drake on forever, thats why kanye went back into the studio to rewrite his verse, eminem was spitting while these 3 were slow as fk.. -The Marshall Mathers Lp has sold 27 million, 1.7 in its first week, take care is nothing compared to The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, & The Slim Shady Lp - Eminem talks about real life, how he struggled throughout life, drake doesn't you dumbass.. - No one cares if eminems album is critically acclaimed or has mixed reviews..he'll sell 700k out the gate and these irrelevant rappers can't - No one cares about shows, eminem is a casual dude - Eminem has won 13 grammys, his album will be nominated for next years grammys..

    "why dont black people support each other?" We actually do which is why Yo Gotti is at #56, we can't support all 999,999 of our rappers all at once and not support our singers, and musicians too, we do the best we can considering that we are only 12% of the population with less disposable income than whites. One of the most lucrative businesses in American society is taking Black culture and packaging it for white consumption, Elvis to Emenim its a formula we know all about.

      Like I said, HipHop has changed, there has never been a time in the history of HipHop where non African Americans dominated the charts with singles and platinum albums. There was always one or two non-African Americans like the ones you mentioned but they never outnumbered African Americans on the charts. When was the last time whites occupied every single HipHop category at the Grammys? 10, I repeat 10....TEN.....The ten highest charting songs on the HipHop charts in 2013 all had a non African American on them. The next phase will be the white female rapper phase, Miley Cyrus will most likely release a rap album that does moderately well, they are a,ready prepping us for this and will use a white female rapper reality show as a platform for this phase....in addition to inserting more and more white females into HipHop music songs. HipHop has changed.

      Hip Hop ain't changed. Beastie Boys, Vanilla Ice and Eminem have been around at least one decade from the beginning.
