Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 3/23/2014

YG's "My Krazy Life" debuts at #2, Pharrell Williams' "G I R L" drops to #6 and Rick Ross stays in the Top 10 this week.

Following its release just over a week ago on March 18, YG’s My Krazy Life debut rose to the #2 spot this week on the Billboard Top 200 chart. Lower on the list, Pharrell Williams and Rick Ross both experienced single digit rankings drops from fifth and third to #6 and #7, respectively, for their albums G I R L and Mastermind. After making his Top 200 debut last week at #4, Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit album dropped down to #19, a couple spots above John Legend’s Love In The Futurewhich has remained on the charts for just shy of 30 weeks. Meanwhile, ScHoolboy Q’s fourth week on the list finds him dropping from #15 last week to #29 with his Oxymoron album. 

YG’s My Krazy Life Debuts At #2

Selling just over 60,000 units in its first week on shelves, YG’s My Krazy Life displaced Pharrell Williams at the #2 spot. The Def Jam debut, which features production from DJ Mustard and a feature from Kendrick Lamar, is YG’s first time on the charts. Earlier this week, the rapper talked about the release in an interview with Hot 97, saying “it’s easy to make a classic album.” “Yeah, it just take time,” YG said. “I feel like if you give a nigga stories and all that on your album and it’s really like—no matter if it blow. Like Jay Z first album’s a classic, but it didn’t sell a lot…If you giving stories and it’s realistic like people feel it. And like ‘He ain’t lying.’ That’s a classic.”

While on the show, YG also credited Jeezy for giving him artistic freedom on the album. “As far as the music, he let me do my thing," YG said. "You feel me? Like he come in. He give me advice. But when I link up with him it was never a problem with the music…Just making the right moves and connecting with the right person. Cause I was on the West Coast. It was hard. It was hard for me on this side and the South. But then when I link up with Jeezy we start working. We did the mixtape, the ‘My Nigga’ record. Shit started clicking. And then he was at the label. Doing his stuff and going hard for me.”

Pharrell Williams’ G I R L Falls To #6 & Rick Ross’ Mastermind Drops To #7

During its third week on the charts, Pharrell Williams’ second studio album, G I R L, sold just shy of 35,000 units, a nearly 25 percent drop from last week, and fell one spot to #6. To date, Williams has sold 192,000 copies of the record, which received a 3.5 out of a possible 5 in HipHopDX’s recent review. “While G  I  R  L is too surface-level at times, it hits the target it’s aimed for,” DX wrote. “Pharrell wants summertime airplay, and any of these songs could survive on the radio. It’s also a nice tribute to feminine vigor, adding another notch to Pharrell’s ever-growing list of achievements. He has plenty to be happy about these days.”

Directly beneath the “Happy” star, Rick Ross sold 27,000 copies of his Mastermind album, pushing him over the quarter-million sales mark after three weeks on the list. Ross, who sold nearly 50,000 albums last week, debuted at #1 on the charts for the fifth time in his career with Mastermind. His 2010 release, Teflon Don, is his only major-label release to not reach the top spot on the charts.

Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit Lands At #19 & Eminem’s Marshall Mathers LP 2 At #27

Experiencing a double-digits ranking drop from last week, Emanon emcee Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit fell from the fourth spot to #19 in its second week on the chart. Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit sold a little less than 15,000 copies this week, a 67 percent drop from last week’s numbers, and has now totaled over 60,000 albums sold.  

Eminem, who passed the 2 million albums sold mark last week for his Marshall Mathers LP sequel, sold nearly 13,000 copies of MMLP2 this week, earning him his twentieth week on the charts for this particular album. Elsewhere, Em’s Eminem Show clocked enough sales, with 3,226 sold this week, to crack into the Top 200 at #116.

ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron At #29 & Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire Drops To #36

After debuting as the most streamed album of the year on Spotify earlier this month, ScHoolboy Q’s major label debut, Oxymoron, fell from the #15 spot last week to #29 this week. Having sold 12,224 copies of the record this week, Q’s total numbers inched closer to the 200,000 mark. ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron album received a 3.5 out of 5 in its recent HipHopDX review. "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.”

At the same time, the Young Money compilation Rise Of An Empire fell nearly 30 spots from its debut at #7 to its current standing at #36. The album, which experienced a 66 percent drop in sales in that time period, sold 10,569 copies this week after selling 31,490 copies in its first week.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib Enter The Charts At #39 With Pinata

With 9,299 albums sold in its first week on shelves, Freddie Gibbs and Madlib debuted on the charts at #39 this week with their album Pinata. The album, which received HipHopDX’s highest rating of the year thus far with a 4.5 out of 5, was released on the producer’s Madlib Invazion label and features artists like Scarface, Raekwon and Danny Brown. “As Gangster Rap, Piñata is free of conceptual pretense; it’s a slice more than a thesis,” HipHopDX wrote. “It’s also a new benchmark for Gibbs and may end up as a career calling card. If nothing else, it quickly sounds like one of the year’s best.”

  • Anonymous

    "you missed the point of the statement" No half a man. I took a healthy poo on that statement. All of these 50 songs lately have low budget beats, and sound like recycled garbage. Look at his album cover. It looks worse than a Koch cover. Real progress is not bunching together a group of bad songs, but generating real hype where people are actually going to lay out 10-12 bucks come June.

These are unlikely moves: A video/single for "In Vein" with The weekend. (Huge shot at a radio hit) A video with Kanye and Big Sean for "Sanctified" (the most popular song off the LP) This is the the move I desire: A movie styles visual treatment for "Blessing in Disguise" w/ Scarface and Z Ro. So many options.

    "so you can see the significance to the culture of kendrick going platinum" But he's been outsold by Drake, Macklemore, & Eminem. Going platinum is good, but back in the day going platinum wasn't enough. You literally had to do at least 3x-5 mill to be considered a giant. Then you had cats doing 8 mill. Kendrick's little 1.2 mill isn't enough to solidify jack shit at the moment.

    Let's be honest...YG doesn't even crack 30,000 units if isn't for the outstanding Drake feature. Artists should be sending Drake gift baskets for making them even more money. Just ask Kendrick, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Schoolboy Q, Eminem, Jhene Aiko etc. If Drake isn't featured on a popular song then one of his in house OVO producers like Boi 1da, T-Minus and 40 likely produced it. OVO is the modern Motown, nothing but hit records.

      You're still wrong about everything. No one should thank Drake for anything. They got hits and awards without him and no one's copying his style. OVO is pop music, not hip-hop.

    • Champagne Papi Life

      Let's see, Boi 1da produced Not Afraid for Eminem...pretty big tune, Eminem even got a Grammy for that one. Jay-Z and Rick Ross' smash hit "fuckwitmeyouknowIgotit" was produced by Boi-1da and Timbaland. T-Minus produced Kendrick's Swimming Pools and Drake was on Poetic Justice. So yeah a big chunk of mainstream hip-hop and R&B artists should be thanking Drake, because their hit records and awards wouldn't exist without him. If they aren't getting Drake features or beats from OVO, then they are blatantly copying his style. OVO is hip-hop!

      "Let's be honest...YG doesn't even crack 30,000 units if isn't for the outstanding Drake feature." Yes, let's forget about that platinum single with Jeezy on it. YG wouldn't sell 30k if it wasn't for a flop Drake single.

Mike Will is a genius even if people call him a sellout, all the best selling Hiphop albums the past couple years are by white artists or have white girls on them, even Yo Gotti, 2-Chainz and Juicy J have gone the white girl route and Kendrick and J Cole got plaques with their white girls.

      A white girl that NO ONE has ever heard of. Cole's biggest hits on Born Sinner have Miguel and TLC on it.

      He had a white girl on his album so he got plenty of sales from that side but if 99% of artists don't even go Gold why are the geeks still talking about platinum?

      Look at all of these Ross stans trying so hard to defend their hero who flopped. They always bring up 50 Cent when the convo's not even about 50. Ross stans are more obsessed with 50 Cent than actual 50 Cent stans.

      50 fans are gay as shit just look at their homo comments about buttcracks and manboobs, now they want to Dickride J.Cole because he is the only rapper with a plaque that put 50 on their album. The irony is that Jimmy Iovine gave J. Cole a home for his own vanity label on Interscope the same month they fired Curtis....props to J Cole on the major label love.

      The 50 groupies make themselves look desperate and I love it. Mastermind is selling at the exact pace that we expected it to without a Top 200 single or a Pop feature, a street LP doing 250K in 3 weeks and remaining in the Top 10 is a win. The Hate groups should just stay in the past and brag about how Eminem sold more than Ross or how Pharell and YG have platinum singles, LOL, their desperation makes seeing a brother succed so much more sweet!

  • Anonymous

    Sales are horrible,YG has a platinum single, I thought he would do Schoolboy numbers since he has the CTE cosign, the Drake feature and the marketability as a genuine young criminal. Pharrel cares none about domestic sales, his Pop album is on the charts in 70 countries and he has a Multi-platinum pop single with Happy. Rozay will go Gold again, he's on his usual pace and has the Thug Cry video in the vault and a possible visual for In Vein that will keep him bubbling. Young Money didn't even promote their compilation so no surprise there, Its a shame that the Self Made series does better than these YMCMB compilations when YMCMB have the biggest artists in rap. Gibbs and Lib dropped one of the best albums of the year but outside HipHop circles nobody knows or cares, the production and lyrics on Piata are Grade A+.

    " You mean like how Ross hasn't had a hit of his own in years? He needs Jay-Z, Drake, Lil Wayne, French, Ace Hood, Future, etc to put him on their hits." Ross has more hits than pharrell. Ross has Everyday Im shuffling, The Boss, Aston Martin Music, Devil Is A lie, and UEONEO.

      "Pharrell singles were pop though while the other producers are hiphop. Mike Will brought white female rap into mainstream, DJ Mustard brought infectious beats with rack city, my nigga, and more, DJ Khaled does indeed produce and is a legendary dj, and JUSTICE League are some to class producers better than grandmaster flash." You're wrong about everything again. Pharrell is a multi-genre producer, working with hip-hop, R&B, pop, rock, etc. The other producers are also pop. Mike Will didn't bring any white girl rap into the mainstream, Mustard brought the same, shitty, annoying, simplistic beats with all of those terrible songs he produced, Khaled doesn't produce, and Justice League aren't better than the OG Grandmaster Flash. Kill yourself.

      "When it comes to GOAT production, mike will, dj mustard, dj khaled, and justic eleague all have bigger hits and better singles they produced than the black neptune." You obviously don't know music. Pharrell has produced more bigger and better hit singles than weak ass Mike Will, Mustard, Khaled, and Justice League (also, Khaled doesn't even produce). "Pharrell sucks shit as a producer and singer. Happy may be a fun song to sing if you are either a 6 year old or gay." Wrong.

      LMAO, Pharell just got nominated for 4 Grammys and has 4x as many hits as Ross has and has been around twice as long as Ross has. Its so fuckin funny how that 50 Cents troll is comparing the singing albums to the rapping albums

    Yall know the reason Curtis left Interscope is so he can buy his own album to generate buzz. He wanted interscope to buy 500k copies of his last album but Interscope dont row that way. His single with Eminem....Yes with EMINEM->MR BILLBOARD and Adam...a Pop single at that couldnt sell well. So now with his current deal he can buy his album to save face.
