P.O.S Debuts in Top 50
 
P.O.Sí latest album We Donít Even Live Here debuted at #47 on the Billboard Top 200 chart (#8 Current Rap Album) this week, marking the highest debut of his career. You can also purchase the "Two Bum Kidneys" poster here.

Dope. Best hip-hop album of the year by far.

Dustin Harkins 11/01/12 01:12 PM

Also, Kendrick Lamar had the #2 highest hip hop debut week sales of this year. (Only to Nicki Minaj according to Wikipedia, but should that count? Hahaha. But still includes beating out Rick Ross, G.O.O.D. Music, Nas, and tons of others)

Fuck yeah. Support credible artists, people!

It's incredible that his album is performing so well, especially in light of his health issues. Should definitely help out in the bill department. From all the good reviews this seems to get it makes me excited for the chance to finally pick it up next paycheck .

The support for this guy is nothing short of amazing.

bladerdude360 11/01/12 02:06 PM

Great for him. Hope the album continues to do well and he get better soon.

great_gatsbys 11/01/12 02:12 PM

That's fantastic news. He also got a story on TIME's website about raising funds for his kidney.

blackmold 11/01/12 02:45 PM

Yeah dude! This is what being a genuine, hardworking guy gets you. Album is awesome. P.O.S is awesome.

Kapa73 11/01/12 02:58 PM

Getting into P.O.S. via DOOMTREE. This is the first album of his that I've purchased/listened to completely.

Does anyone else feel like the first half is far better than the second half?

Anyone have suggestions for how this record stacks up against the rest of his releases? I'm looking for a Album x > album y > album z kinda thing from a seasoned P.O.S. fan....

Jason, how many did he move?

Tell your friends about this album. This is a hip hop album anyone can get behind.

taekwondrone 11/02/12 12:12 AM

Cool, thanks. I said Jason cuz he's usually the one with the Soundscan #s. Didn't know who else had access to them.

Oh ok, at first I figured that but wasn't sure.

Mikenovacane 11/02/12 10:50 AM

Awesome to hear. I got to meet him on the Never Better tour in Montreal, and he's a total standup dude as well. Was more than happy to chill out with the crowd after his set.

Get on this record people!

It debuted as the #8 rap album, as well.
