Hip Hop Ain't Dead

Posted by: Drew Beringer (09/17/09)
Jay-Z will be No. 1 on the charts for a second week in a row, as his new album, The Blueprint 3, has added another 200k in sales to the 476k it sold last week. Kid Cudi's debut album, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, will debut in the Top 5 with sales between the 110-120k range.

Really happy Jay-Z got the #1 spot, which I figured would happen.

More importantly, 12-15k for THRICE.

Glad to see some folks still went out and bought the physical release even though it leaked so early.

Cudi's album is really good. Well deserved sales. Haven't listened to the new Jay-Z yet though.
