Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 3/16/2014

Rick Ross's "Mastermind" appears in the Top 3, Young Money's "Rise Of An Empire" enters the chart in the Top 10, ScHoolboy Q's "Oxymoron" remains in the Top 15 and Eminem's "MMLP2" reaches a milestone on this week's Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

This week on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart, Rick Ross's Mastermind experiences a drop. The album, which has been available for two weeks, went from #1 to #3 in a week, dropping 73 percent since its first week. Meanwhile, Aloe Blacc makes his chart debut at #4 and Young Money's Rise Of An Empire makes its chart debut, entering the field at #7. Elsewhere, Pharrell's G  I  R  L remains in the Top 5 and ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron falls from last week's #8 to this week's #15. 

Rick Ross's Mastermind Falls To # 3

Rick Ross's Mastermind falls to #3 this week, a 73 percent decrease from last week's 179,000 copies sold. This week, the project sold 49,000 units of an album that earned a 3 out 5 in its HipHopDX review. "Listening to any Rick Ross record requires an overwhelmingly prodigious imagination," HipHopDX says in its review. "It also requires an innate appreciation of harmless deception; it’s a lot like being an adult at a magic show: you know it’s not really magic, but there’s something wondrous about having your perception of reality challenged...Rozay’s sixth studio album, Mastermind, once again explores his heavily dramatized excursions as a drug tycoon with great depth, but it reads more insincerely than ever and his imagination has seemingly reached its limit."

Aloe Blacc's Lift Your Spirit Lands At #4 & Pharrell's G  I  R  L Falls To #5

Aloe Blacc's Lift Your Spirit is this week's #4 album on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album, crafted by the Emanon emcee, sold 45,414 units. Lift Your Spirit recently earned a 3 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. Elsewhere, Pharrell's G  I  R  L, another mostly-sung project from a rapper-singer, appears at #5 on this week's chart. The album went from 112,029 units last week to selling 45,242 copies this week. This 60 percent decrease in sales drops the project from last week's #2 placement. Overall, G  I  R  L, which earned a 3.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review, has sold 157,776 units. 

Young Money's Rise Of An Empire Enters Charts At #7

Young Money's Rise Of An Empire entered the charts at #7 this week. When the album was announced, Cash Money's Baby said YMCMB was "stronger than ever," and that every contributor to the project "was truly on fire." In its first week out, Rise Of An Empire sold approximately 32,000 copies and earned a 2.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review. "Where We Are Young Money portrayed the label as one big Playboy-Mansion-style party, Empire offers a gloomy portrait of a house divided." HipHopDX says in its review of the project. 

ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron Drops To #15

ScHoolboy Q's Oxymoron continues falling on the charts. This week, Oxymoron falls from #8 to #15. The album sold 16,000 copies, a 46 percent decrease in sales from last week's 30,000 copies sold. Overall, Oxymoron, which earned a 3.5 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review, has sold 185,000 units since its release. "In many ways, Oxymoron delivers exactly as advertised," HipHopDX says in its album review. "It’s an ominous project that also needs a few radio reaches to provide ScHoolboy Q a platform to achieve mainstream success. You want a guy like Q to bring home a gold or platinum plaque, but will you endure the strategic placement of some Top 40 bait to see it happen?" Before the album was released, ScHoolboy spoke about how Oxymoron would sound. “People may get confused by ‘Collard Greens’ and ‘Man Of The Year,’” ScHoolboy Q said at the time. “The album really sounds nothing like it. I’d rather them listen to it and see what they get. I’ve been explaining this album for so fucking long that I’m at the point where I really don’t know what to say about it.”

Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 Passes 2 Million Units Sold Mark

Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP 2 reached a milestone this week as it passed the 2,000,000 units sold mark. The album, which has been available for 19 weeks, landed this week at #20 and sold 13,278 units. Overall, the album, commonly stylized as MMLP2, has sold 2,003,749 copies. In November, Eminem spoke about his thought process on this album."Once I had the direction that I wanted to go, and you know calling it The Marshall Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that there might be certain expectations," Eminem said at the time. "Like, I wouldn't want to just call it that just for the sake of calling it that. So I wanted to make sure that I had the right songs to be able to call it that. So, a lot of recording. A lot of songs that people probably will never hear. We hit a couple of road blocks. There were songs where the beat leaked or a producer sold the beat to someone else or whatever. And just when you think you got it or you got the right amount of songs you go back and you listen and you're like, 'Fuck man! I feel like it needs this or this' to paint the whole picture."

    "he only appealed to 228k consumers. Common and J cole do about the same as Rick Ross" Mentioning Common as if any of his albums have ever significantly dented anything other than a bargain bin is a waste of your typing speed. Port of Miami outsold both of Cole's first 2 albums. The more you hate the more Ross wins so relax that stance and just enjoy the hits.

    Sanctified is a bonafied hit but I cant see Kanye sitting still long enough to film a video, the same with LiL Wayne for Thug Cry. My personal choice would be Blessing in Disguise with Scarface and ZRo, that video would be classic just like the song. If you want sales and more buzz then the obvious choice would be In Vein with The Dream because its the most radio ready song off the CD and the bitches will gobble it up.

  • MasterMind on ITunes

    So Rozay is at 230k after two weeks so here are a few options: "Mafia Music 3" this needs to be a video/visual Kingston-Jamaica Dancehall style with Sizzla, Movada and their camps, I'd give the treatment one half dancehall and the other half the Island beauty. Its been a minute since we had some good Ol Island flavored street-hop, its a demographic that needs to be shown some love.

      No, Ross is only successful because he has co-signs from legends like Bun B, E-40, Raekwon, Beanie Sigel, Kool G Rap, Scarface, Snoop Dogg, and Too Short, without them he wouldnt be as popular.

    It isnt over for Schoolboy. He needs to continue to promote the album through touring, shows, radio promo, interviews and in-store signings. Keep that ITunes DL link poppin on your social media profiles and encourage your fans to spread the word He also needs to release new videos for at least 3 of the songs off Oxymoron and think about some possible remixes with his TDE family. Not saying there is a window of time to get your sales but it's best to hit em while you are hot before somebody else pops up to take that $10.

    "Just because your album doesent sell doesent make it worthless, an album can be worth a million dollars to a fan who enjoys it and uses it as a source of enjoyment in their life" I meant worthless in the eyes of the label heads funding it.

    "Chingy and Soulja Boy have platinum albums so they are obviously better than J. cole and Common who will never go Platinum unlike Silk the Shocker and Maste P." Why hate on those two just because they made music (for a short time) that was more popular than those other cats? For all of Common's lyrical ability, dude never went platinum. Granted, neither has Ross, but Ross still appeals to the consumer in a broader sense. Money is king in the music industry. If J Cole could sell millions then that type of music would start to dominate, but fact is it doesn't. Drake is one exception, but he doesn't have many more years left if his last album is any indication.

      Common, Cole and Ross are all eating and when the sales dry up they will still be eating because these Black men are intelligent businessmen as well as entertainers. Eminem doesent need to make "Bangers" his fanbase aint in the club anyway, he can put on a dress and rap about having sex with his Uncle to appease his fans. The white Mac Miller can get that Vanilla Ice money but the culture-vulture cant give Blacks and Latinos jobs in this industry so we just laugh at him and his Vanilla Ice fanboy.

      "Common and J.Cole were/are signed to Kanye West or signed to JayZ so their efforts never got them to the Forbes list LOL, Rozay is one of those new millineum Bosses that can make a million without selling a million." Ross didn't even make top 20 on Forbes last year. Some guy on here keeps pointing out how he made as many millions last year as Mac Miller.

      Common and J cole ain't far off from RR or 2 chainz in music sales, don't fall for the glitter. They eating with their dignity intact, and remember BS first week was 325k sales which is a lot more than expected considering there weren't any "bangers" on it, then there's Eminem, what club is banging that? exactly. And with your logic OP Rick Ross doesn't have many years left if his current sales are an indication.

Party songs reign supreme. Ross album has been out two weeks and it already sold more than 2-Chainz total on his last album and 230K without a Hit single. Common and J.Cole were/are signed to Kanye West or signed to JayZ so their efforts never got them to the Forbes list LOL, Rozay is one of those new millineum Bosses that can make a million without selling a million. LOL these new millineum Bosses put in effort at running succesful labels so their artists can share the success and the effort is worth it, especially when it frustrates the haters.

      Party music ain't dominating shit tho. Rick Ross ain't even a 1/4 gold yet and it's week, he only appealed to 228k consumers. Common and J cole do about the same as Rick Ross and they don't try as hard or have the machine pushing their shit as heavy. In other words their efforts match their investments. Rick Ross got superhero movie promo and got school project sales lol.

    • Anonymous

      Party music will always outsell conscious music because more people use music as a form of entertainment than they do a form of education. Common is a lyrical genius but his shit gets no play in the club and not much on radio, Drake got the bitches on lock and the radio on lock so his shit sells like hot cakes. J Cole is one of my favs but he is similar to Common in the aspect that he just can't craft bangers.

    "sales never dictated anything" Damn you blind. Take for example 50 Cent. Sales were what made him act like a bully cause he knew if you couldn't outsell him, how else were you going to shut him up? Look back at most of the mainstream debuts of all the top artists over the years. They all sold millions which in turn helped hip hop become a billion dollar industry. The climate has changed a lot, but the fact is if you can't sell, then your album is worthless. I don't care if you're YG, Rick Ross, or 50 Cent. If you think execs sit around and stroke themselves over lyrical content and what people on blogs think, then I can't do much more for ya.

      Just because your album doesent sell doesent make it worthless, an album can be worth a million dollars to a fan who enjoys it and uses it as a source of enjoyment in their life. some of my favorite tapes/CDs are free Mixtapes that never sold a single copy but that doesent lessen the value and worth of the music.

    Rozay is predictable and steady which is why Def Jam allowed him to release Mastermind without a single on the 200 chart, its refreshing to see a major HipHop release without the pop bullshit or the mandatory pop feature. I want more HipHop albums with guest features like Mastermind: Masspike Miles, Teedra Moses, Betty Wright, Betty Idol, Sizzla, Movado, Keith Sweat etc.... y'all can have your Miley Cyrus and Daft Punk.

    Another victory for Def Jam, "MasterMind" already at 230K which is around the total for 2-Chainz last album plus "Mastermind" charted in around 7 different countries so the project recouped its budget and made the label some profit so you can expect a 7th Rozay album.

      lmmfao, sales never dictated anything. There are platinum selling rappers with no career as are non-selling rappers with a 7-15 year career.

MTV, VH1, 106, have NEVER showed you what the people are listening to, just what's POPULAR A perfect example, the Hip Hop community has been saying that Roc Marciano has had 2 great albums over the last 3 years, Marcberg and Reloaded, and most of the "fans" have never heard those albums Many you follow what's popular, not the music or are lovers of the culture, and it's clear. y'all totally ignored The Heist and it was out for almost 2 years, until Warner made it hot on radio, the mags, websites, TV fake ass "fans" ain't fooling anybody with your so-called love for the game, you look like fools every single Wednesday when the sales come out trend followers

  • DA BIG HOMIE FROM LA

    Suburban whites who don't have the street IQ to know the difference between a C.O. and a policeman are still heartbroken that Ross doesnt know Pablo Escobar and that JayZ didn't lose 92 Bricks. The Streets and people who listen to music for entertainment don't concern themselves with weather or not Dr Dre was ever a "Gangsta" or if Pusha T ever sold kilograms or if Snoop ever lived off the earnings of a prostitute....we listen to rap-music for the sound of the instruments and the slickness of the poetry. Suburban whites listen to our music so they can live out a "Ghetto" fantasy through the lives of our rappers which is why they focus so much on what they perceive as real/fake or fabricated/authenticated...our music is their only means of getting a street education so they actually attempt to believe song lyrics are supposed to be biographical criminal confessions.

    "naw just find it funny he made as much as rick ross last year with zero gold albums" Their overall fortunes tell a completely different story. I don't care what rappers make at a given time. That doesn't tell the whole story, and in MM's case, he has the worst rap portfolio in hip hop. He basically uses internet hype and sponsors to make his low ball millions. Ross has to grind every album, finding new lies to tell, all while trying to make MMG look untouchable. That's a lot of people relying on him to put money in their pocket.

      There is no comparison to Rozay and Mac Miller outside of the fact that Mac Miller was able to accumulate 6 million within a year through touring in front of crowds that look just like him. Rozay has a brand and he has artists under his umbrella that drop Gold albums and Platinum singles, he has his own independent Visual department and lucrative sponsors for his team so the comparison is laughable when you consider the fact that Rozay has made the Forbes list 6 times and Mac miller has only made it once. When Mac Miller can sign an artist who drops a Gold album or has a Gold album of his own or gets a Grammy nomination then we might mention his name as a factor in HipHop music but untill then he is just another rapper like Vanilla Ice who had a good year that people want to blow up because he looks like them.

      LOL, the label didnt buy Q's albums, that's just a myth that children throw out there when they feel hateful inside because fans support the artist. Labels don't spend millions of dollars on promotions, recording, features, musicians, producers, packaging, mixing, mastering, and shipping just so they can turn around and purchase their own product for $10-$18, but if people are so stupid that they believe Interscope would rather spend money on buying its own CDs instead of spending money on promoting people to buy their CDs then cool I think its hilarious.

    • spirit

      Q did 30K in his second week. With an artist like Q, his fans are going to get the album the first week. He's not crossing over like that, so a big second week drop is to be expected. Those are just fans who couldn't get the album the first week, for whatever reason. I wish him luck, he seems like a nice enough dude.

      I like Q as a member of black hippy and I like some of his solo stuff, mainly of habits & contradictions but I said the same thing a week ago, that the label would do that and people were all butt hurt by it, I mean why wouldn't they, Kendrick and him are on the cover of magazine

Pharell is straight, he went straight for the juggler and threw Kelly Osbourne and JoJo on his shit but before you call him a sellout just recognize that his album charted in all the Europeon countries where Caucasians are the minority population so the features and the album cover were genius at the least and the single from that Cartoon movie is the biggest single in the world at the moment. YG is alright, dope album but I expected a bigger performance after My Nigga raped the charts. Young Money doing numbers with no Promo they just drop music to get their artists some promo and pub that's all.

      Mastermind was a risky drop in this climate, during the Soundscan era only 15 artists have made it to #1 without a song on their album breaking the Top 200. Street music in the mainstream is waning as evidenced by the recent numbers of Gotti/Montana/Schoolboy, but their still exists a demand for it as we see here. Aloe Blacc had crazy buzz due to the DreBeats commercial and the NFL playoff campaign but he killed a lot of that buzz after that horrific live performance at the Allstar game....how shrewd was the marketing of an Interscope artist breaking his single on a DreBeats commercial.

      That's because they are pop single while ross's are hiphop. Blurred lines wasn't pharrell's song and happy was helped heavily by a soundtrack.

      Ross had 3 hits singles compared to Pharrell's one? Blurred Lines and Happy are bigger than anything Ross has ever done in his career.

      You copied and pasted that bullshit. Get some new material troll. Ross is still beating pharrell at home and ross has 3 hit singles in the past year compared to pharrell's one. Ross has UOENO, No new friends, and Bugatti. How many does your boy, 50 have?

      Pharrell beat Ross in every country by the USA and has a 2x platinum single so when Rick Ross falls off the charts in 3 weeks Pharrell will likely keep selling long into the summer months.
