    I know this was released digital-only at first. Supposedly sold 1,197 first week of physical release (06/07/11) and had done 3,648 total at that point, according to:

    Thanks, I will update them - can you send me the chart where you saw Sam's album at 38k, maybe as a private msg ?

    Meanwhile, Nas did exactly what I was hoping for and heavily exceeded expectations to open with 149k. He is also in the race for a second #1 this week, before Rick Ross opens the week after Numbers and chart updates coming soon!

    Albums marked with bold have had their sales updated since the previous post. Will be updated with the actual numbers once they become available.

    Total number of albums on chart: 164

    Albums selling over 2,000,000: 1
    Albums selling over 1,000,000: 3
    Albums selling over 500,000: 8
    Albums selling over 250,000: 14
    Albums selling over 100,000: 28
    Albums selling over 50,000: 44 (probably 45-49)

    Young Jeezy moves to #6 - of course we haven't had updates for J.Cole for a while, so it's safe to say he is still ahead of him, but probably not for long. Jeezy looks like he'll end up with at least 700-750k from this release, not bad for a guy who was off the radar for a while.

    Meanwhile, Jay & Kanye outsold 'The Carter 4' this week, and so did Drake, who doubled their copies. He is now less than 350k behind Lil Wayne and is outselling him by 3k+ per week right now - if he keeps it up for 2+ more years, he just might become the #1 hip-hop album of 2011 ;)

    Albums selling over 1,000,000: 0
    Albums selling over 500,000: 1
    Albums selling over 250,000: 2
    Albums selling over 100,000: 7
    Albums selling over 50,000: 18

    Albums marked with bold have had their numbers updated.

    Another week in which we don't get the full numbers, so all the charts are updated from the BB200 and the Catalog charts.

    Nas surpassed the initial predictions, opening at #1 on the BB200 with 149k in sales, enough to debut straight at #5 in our chart. He will almost surely go #4-#3 in the next two weeks, barring a surprise. Of course, those numbers will have to be readjusted once Rick Ross debuts, so it's shaping up to be a better top 10 than we've seen so far.

    Lecrae affiliate KB debuts with a little less than 10k, although nearly 1,200 copies sold through christian outlets were not counted in the total. Kokane manages to squeeze an album and a mixtape in their second weeks - which explain why they don't have the green DEBUT sign next to them. Big KRIT is down to the bottom of the Billboard chart at #196 in his seventh week, so if he drops out we might not see an official update for his album in a while, though hiphopdx.com should keep updating it for at least a few more weeks.

    In other news, Public Enemy and Alchemist's new albums sold 984 and 929 copies, respectively. PE's album was 100% digital, while Alchemist managed to sell about a 150 physical copies. If we ever get another update for them, they will feature in the chart, having sold more than 1,000 confirmed copies.

    According to HitsDailyDouble, Nas could not win the fight for #1 again and drops to #2 with around 42k in sales - until we see Billboard numbers, we are not sure what his exact sales are, but almost surely he will be at #2. HDD are predicting a 70% drop, pretty steep...

    In other news, seems like 'The Blueprint 3' was on sale, cause it sold almost 10k copies and we will get a long awaited update on its total

    In a very bad sales week, it seems like Nicki Minaj is up a little bit, still selling around 9k and almost at 600 total. MMG also holds steady with around 14k, which will not be enough to stop Nas from surpassing them on our chart.

    More to come soon..

    Why isn't LMFAO's album included on the 2011's list?
    It's a rap album and sold enough to be at No. 4.
    Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.

    Say no to streaming!

    Same reason Frank Ocean isn't included, or Flo Rida, etc. If you are curious, scroll back a few pages, we discussed it a few months ago

    Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3 re-enters the chart at #28, its highest ranking since February 2010. The album surged because of a sale in the Amazon MP3 store. The album is #1 on Top Catalog Albums. It's the first rap album to top the catalog chart since 50 Cent's Get Rich Or Die Tryin' in March 2005 (the resurgence in that case was due to the release of his then-new The Massacre).

    The Blueprint 3 has sold 1,933,000 copies since its release in 2009. All three of albums in this series have been big hits. The Blueprint has sold 2,730,000 copies since its release in 2001. The Blueprint 2: The Gift And The Curse has sold 2,122,000 copies since its release in 2002.
    ROSS IS BOSS, JOSS IS NEXT

    Def Jam/IDJ Rapper Will Easily Top Chart

    August 1, 2012

    Rick Ross returns this week’s HITS Album chart to a semblance of sanity.

    The large and in-charge rapper continues Def Jam/IDJ’s recent dominance of the marketplace with God Forgives, I Don’t, which will debut next week with between 200-220k in sales, easily going #1. His last album, Teflon Don, sold 176k upon release in July 2010. Previous label winners include Nas, who debuted at #1 last week, and newcomer Frank Ocean, with a #2 bow last month for his acclaimed debut, channel ORANGE.

    Total number of albums on chart: 78

    Albums selling over 2,000,000: 0
    Albums selling over 1,000,000: 0
    Albums selling over 500,000: 1
    Albums selling over 250,000: 2
    Albums selling over 100,000: 7
    Albums selling over 50,000: 15 (probably 17/18)

    Albums marked with bold have had their numbers updated.

    Another week in which we don't get the full numbers, so all the charts are updated from the BB200 and the Catalog charts.

    Nas drops 70% in his second week, barely missing the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 45k sold. He is now up to #4 in our chart, and with predicted sales of 30-35k for his 3rd week, he will surpass B.O.B. and end up in front of incoming debut Rick Ross. Ross is billed to open with 210-220k, much higher than the 176k 'Teflon Don' did in 2010. That album has sold at least 732k, so we can probably expect some legs from 'God Forgives..." as well.

    If the MMG album receives a boost from Rick's debut (which it probably will), it has a chance to surpass B.O.B. as well. Obviously, his album is shaping up to be one of the 'busts' of 2012. By the way, at this rate Nas should surpass Tyga by the end of August, and hopefully head towards a Gold certification.

    The only debut this week is 8Ball's "Life's Quest", which almost cracked the top 100 of the Billboard.

    First time we get some real numbers in a while, so many updates in all the charts

    Rick Ross opens with 219k, the biggest first week of his career and the 2nd biggest hip-hop opening week this year. He debuts at #1 on the BB200 and straight at #4 on our chart, although he will almost surely go directly to #2 in a week's time. Meanwhile, Nas has surpassed B.O.B. and is now on the tail of Tyga. MMG are also approaching and will probably surpass 'Strange Clouds' in a week.

    The only other debut was La Coka Nostra's new album, which did not make it inside the BB200 by less than 150 copies.

    Where's the problem? It charted on the Billboard Rap Albums Chart and it's as rap as Nicki Minaj's record...

    You propably mean Strange Clouds, though you might be right when it comes to the album's music .

    Say no to streaming!

    A lot of good updates here. I have some comments on these, mostly more "underground" artists I've been following for a decade plus:

    Aesop Rock usually sells around 100,000 of LPs and 50,000 of his EPs going back to around 2000. "Skelethon's" debut week was a personal sales and chart best, but it looks like it's going to end up selling a lot less than what he has done- which I guess is expected in this sales climate. I shared some numbers for his side project "Hail Mary Mallon" in a previous post, and I was a little surprised how little that had sold for being an Aesop Rock project on RSE with good touring and video play behind it.

    "R.A.P. Music" and "Cancer for Cure" are my 2 favorite albums of this year from any genre and they are both fully produced by El-P. For being around almost 20 years and 15 years removed from the project that put him on the map, it's pretty cool that he's having a career year after not doing much for a couple years and almost quitting. Both projects are critically acclaimed. He's been on Letterman for the first time, getting a lot of critical buzz and exposure in new places. Yet that hasn't helped record or ticket sales. For comparison his last full-length official rap release ( he put out some instrumental stuff, singles, since then) in 2007. It sold 16,425 in its first 2 weeks. The last total I saw was around 45,000 in late 2008. His latest has taken 11 weeks to sell 16,651 and is only selling a few hundred copies a week at this point.

    I am pleasantly surprised that Killer Mike's R.A.P. Music has outsold Cancer for Cure. When I heard that both El-P projects were coming out in back to back weeks, I thought his solo would outsell Killer Mike's due to the different fanbases. But it appears that Killer Mike has likely retained his own fans while picking up a good number of El-p's. I am looking forward to their next collaborative album with both of them rapping, and I hope the Adult Swim people or some other label steps up to put it out and give it some promotion. 20,000 units seems pretty low for what many are calling the Rap Album of the Year. However, if you look at the number's from Killer Mike's "Pl3dge" from last year, that was only around 12,000 before dropping off the R&B albums charts. At one point in time Killer Mike sold 80,000 in one WEEK, but that was a different world then.

    I'm not that familiar with Ab-Soul, but I wanted to mention that I've seen this album on a lot of fans and critics lists as the best or one of the top Hip-Hop albums of this year, and thought it was interesting that a lot of the most acclaimed albums this year are selling in the 10,000-20,000 range so far.

    Alchemist is another one who used to do a lot of units on a mostly "underground" level. He still has a pretty high profile, perhaps higher since his association with Eminem. His 2004 "1st Infantry" was up around 180,000 last time I saw numbers for it. Of course that was a long time ago, and he had a single that was on MTV when they still played music, which featured a pretty hot artist at the time. His 2009 project "Chemical Warfare" sold 6900 in the first week. Now he's selling <2000 after 3 weeks. I'm sure he will always have plenty of work as a producer, anyway.

    Wonderful post, I agree with everything You definitely need to check out Ab-Soul's album - top notch all over, from production and theme to lyrics and delivery + diverse tracks forming a whole concept around the album + great guest spots... the full package, it's definitely in my top3 records so far this year

    By the way, here is a little article on Wikipedia, parts of which I regularly edit (mostly the average scores and the release date list). Could be useful for comparing critical response

    Definitely will have to check out that album. Thanks for that Wikipedia link, which confirms what I was thinking about the critical ratings. I was just going off the feel for what I had read about various albums. Also reminds me of a couple other releases with a lot of good press but not much in the way of sales. Though there is always Nas- who gets both.

    OFF THE CHAINZ!

    Georgia Rapper Proves a Playa with Chart-Topping Debut

    August 15, 2012

    Another week, another IDJ artist hits the top spotl
    Barry Weiss, Steve Bartels and company are as hot as the weather this summer, looking at a third hip-hop—and fourth overall—chart-topper on tap. Following Justin Bieber, then Nas and Rick Ross, comes Def Jam College Park, GA, rapper 2 Chainz’s Based on a T.R.U. Story, which is on target for a #1 debut next Tuesday, with sales in the 130-140k range.

    Tauheed Epps, a one-time Playaz Circle member formerly known as Tity Boi, was a protégé of fellow Atlanta rapper Ludacris before breaking out on his own. He had high-profile appearances on hit singles by Kanye West (“Mercy”) and Nicki Minaj (“Beez in the Trap”). The first single from his album, “No Lie,” features Drake.
    "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is easily the best mainstream hip-hop album since 2001's The Blueprint by Jay-Z."

    Yeah, Tity Boi just outsold the the best 5 albums of the year combined.

    There should be a couple easy updates on the 2012 list the is week as I believe Aesop Rock and Mac Miller and maybe someone else re-entered the bb200. This is most likely due to Amazon MP3 sales. They had Killer Mike at 2.99, and he re-entered the Billboard R&B top 75, also.
