This week on the Billboard Top 200
albums chart, Rick Ross’s
Mastermind experiences a drop. The
album, which has been available for
two weeks, went from #1 to #3 in a
week, dropping 73 percent since its
first week. Meanwhile, Aloe Blacc
makes his chart debut at #4 and
Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire
makes its chart debut, entering the
field at #7. Elsewhere, Pharrell’s G I R
L remains in the Top 5 and
ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron falls from
last week’s #8 to this week’s #15.
Rick Ross’s Mastermind Falls To # 3
Rick Ross’s Mastermind falls to #3
this week, a 73 percent decrease from
last week’s 179,000 copies sold. This
week, the project sold 49,000 units of
an album that earned a 3 out 5 in its
HipHopDX review. “Listening to any
Rick Ross record requires an
overwhelmingly prodigious
imagination,” HipHopDX says in its
review. “It also requires an innate
appreciation of harmless deception;
it’s a lot like being an adult at a
magic show: you know it’s not really
magic, but there’s something
wondrous about having your
perception of reality
challenged…Rozay’s sixth studio
album, Mastermind, once again
explores his heavily dramatized
excursions as a drug tycoon with
great depth, but it reads more
insincerely than ever and his
imagination has seemingly reached
its limit.”
Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit Lands At
#4 & Pharrell’s G I R L Falls To #5
Aloe Blacc’s Lift Your Spirit is this
week’s #4 album on the Billboard
Top 200 chart. The album, crafted by
the Emanon emcee, sold 45,414
units. Lift Your Spirit recently earned
a 3 out of 5 in its HipHopDX review
. Elsewhere, Pharrell’s G I R L , another
mostly-sung project from a rapper-
singer, appears at #5 on this week’s
chart. The album went from 112,029
units last week to selling 45,242
copies this week. This 60 percent
decrease in sales drops the project
from last week’s #2 placement.
Overall, G I R L, which earned a 3.5
out of 5 in its HipHopDX review
, has sold 157,776 units.
Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire
Enters Charts At #7
Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire
entered the charts at #7 this week.
When the album was announced,
Cash Money’s Baby said YMCMB
was “stronger than ever,” and that
every contributor to the project “was
truly on fire.” In its first week out,
Rise Of An Empire sold approximately
32,000 copies and earned a 2.5 out
of 5 in its HipHopDX review . “Where
We Are Young Money portrayed the
label as one big Playboy-Mansion-
style party, Empire offers a gloomy
portrait of a house divided.”
HipHopDX says in its review of the
project.
ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron Drops To #
15
ScHoolboy Q’s Oxymoron continues
falling on the charts. This week,
Oxymoron falls from #8 to #15. The
album sold 16,000 copies, a 46
percent decrease in sales from last
week’s 30,000 copies sold. Overall,
Oxymoron, which earned a 3.5 out of
5 in its HipHopDX review , has sold
185,000 units since its release. “In
many ways, Oxymoron delivers
exactly as advertised,” HipHopDX
says in its album review. “It’s an
ominous project that also needs a
few radio reaches to provide
ScHoolboy Q a platform to achieve
mainstream success. You want a guy
like Q to bring home a gold or
platinum plaque, but will you endure
the strategic placement of some Top
40 bait to see it happen?” Before the
album was released, ScHoolboy
spoke about how Oxymoron would
sound
. “People may get confused by
‘Collard Greens’ and ‘Man Of The
Year,’” ScHoolboy Q said at the time.
“The album really sounds nothing like
it. I’d rather them listen to it and see
what they get. I’ve been explaining
this album for so fucking long that
I’m at the point where I really don’t
know what to say about it.”
Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2
Passes 2 Million Units Sold Mark
Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2
reached a milestone this week as it
passed the 2,000,000 units sold
mark. The album, which has been
available for 19 weeks, landed this
week at #20 and sold 13,278 units.
Overall, the album, commonly
stylized as MMLP2, has sold
2,003,749 copies. In November,
Eminem spoke about his thought
process on this album.”Once I had
the direction that I wanted to go, and
you know calling it The Marshall
Mathers LP 2, obviously I knew that
there might be certain expectations,”
Eminem said at the time . “Like, I
wouldn’t want to just call it that just
for the sake of calling it that. So I
wanted to make sure that I had the
right songs to be able to call it that.
So, a lot of recording. A lot of songs
that people probably will never hear.
We hit a couple of road blocks. There
were songs where the beat leaked or
a producer sold the beat to someone
else or whatever. And just when you
think you got it or you got the right
amount of songs you go back and
you listen and you’re like, ‘Fuck man!
I feel like it needs this or this’ to paint
the whole picture.”
