Top Selling Rap Albums on Billboard Chart
Waka Flocka Flame remains the highest selling rapper on the billboard chart for a second week running; his Triple F Life album sold 14,000 copies this week, is now at a two week total of 47,000.
Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded album sold 13,000 copies this week, and now totals at 547,000. B.O.B comes in next with Strange Clouds selling 8,500 copies and now at 164,000. Personally, i think this is a bad reflection of what Hip Hop has turned to. He has two platinum selling singles, and his album is finding it hard to hit 200k. I guess the rap fanbase have left him, and the pop listeners don't know him enough, and would rather just buy his singles.
Drake's Take Care, an album i certify as a well balanced hip hop album, sold 8,200 copies this week, and is now at a total of 1,788,000. Big K.R.I.T's Live From The Underground album sold 6,600 copies this week, and now is at a total of 60,000 copies total. Kid Ink is at a two week total of 26,000 copies of his Up & Away album, after selling 6,200 copies this week.
Curren$y sold 4,600 copies of his The Stoned Immaculate album this week to stand at a 49,000 copies total. Tyga's Careless World album is at a 253,000 copies sold after selling 4,000 copies this week. Future's Pluto album sold 4,000 copies this week, and now is at 111,000 copies total. Travis Porter's From Day 1 album sold 2,200 copies this week, and is now at a total of 25,000 copies sold so far.
