Hiphop albums sales this week- 12/27/2011

Post by reporter-kkk on Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:09 pm

Can Yelawolf continue the
recent chart-topping trends seen by Drake, Mac Miller and Wale? Mobb
Deep's first release in five years hits the charts, and Lil Wayne's "Tha
Carter IV" doubles last week sales.
After powerful debut chart appearances as of late from Mac Miller, Wale and Drake albums, Yelawolf battled the Black Friday sales-rush and found different results. Mobb Deep
also self-released their first studio release, an EP, in over five
years. However, with many stores having sales on CDs and two R&B/Pop
princesses releasing, there was a lot going in the holiday week.

Yelawolf's Radioactive Misses A Top 25 Debut

Dxnext alum Yelawolf's studio debut, Radioactive
debuted at #27, selling over 40,000 units. The Gasden, Alabama emcee
signed to Shady Records in the last year after an Interscope deal had
already been announced. Still with Ghet-O-Vision, the release featured Killer Mike, Gangsta Boo and Lil Jon, along with Kid Rock and Eminem.

Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV Gains 10 Spots Back Into Top 15

It was 2011's best-selling Rap album, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV
that really astonished charts last week. The Cash Money/Universal
Motown Records release climbed 10 spots in a holiday season to reach
#15. The former #1 album better-than-doubled its sales as compared to
last week. Wayne's ninth solo album features Tech N9ne, Andre 3000, Nas as well as his label-mates and Young Money proteges.
