Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 9/23/07

It's Kanye Vs 50 week #2! Who came out on top this week? Would Chamillionaire pose a threat to the top spot or would someone else unseat Kanye?

Country legend Reba Mcintyre's Reba Duets dethroned Kanye this week as the number one album, with 301k sold.  Kanye's Graduation bows at #2  selling 226k this week and officially setting him over platinum status in 2 weeks with over 1.18M sold total.

Although holding the #3 spot, 50 Cent's Curtis is still trailing far behind Kanye selling 143k this week (835k total).

Chamillionaire's latest, Ultimate Victory, debuted at #8 this week selling just over 79k while Twista's Adrenaline Rush debut came in at #10. The Chicago rapper sold about 41k.

T.I.'s T.I. vs. TIP fell from #19 to #35. The platinum rapper sold 19k this week (1.07M total).  Common's Finding Forever has dropped from #17 on the charts to #40 with 16k sold (370 total).

Other double-digit drops include Plies' Real Testament (from #24 to #41) selling 16k (244k total), T-Pain's Epiphany slid from #32 to #51 with 13k sold (664k total), and Sean Kingston's self titled project fell from #39 to #59 and sold 12k (232k total).

Miami kingpin Rick Ross' 2006 Suave House release of Rise to Power at a disappointing #62 selling only 11.5k.

After debuting at #3 four weeks ago, Yung Joc continues his quick descent landing at #65 this week. Hustlenomics sold 11k this week (125k total). Another MC quickly making his way down the charts is Talib Kweli. After debuting only five weeks ago at #2, Eardrum is now at #66 selling 11k as well (129k total).  Joining the ranks of other "In like a lion/ out like a lamb" albums is UGK's Underground Kingz which debuted 7 weeks ago at #1 and now hold the #68 spot.  The southern rappers sold 10k this week (327k total).

Last week Aesop Rock's None Shall Pass was up five spots to #97, with a likely thanks to MTV for holding him down with "artist of the week" publicity.  But it seemed that once the week was over, so was the buzz.  Aesop dropped to #169 this week selling 4k (29k total).

And lastly, despite recently publicly criticizing both Kanye and T.I. for their lack of talent and even telling Kanye he can "eat a dick" (Click Here if you missed it)... Havoc of Mobb Deep debuted his solo effort, Kush, at #173 this week selling an atrocious 4k copies.
