Hip Hop Album Sales: The Week Ending 9/5/2010

Shady rules. Eminem stays number 3 with Recovery and remains top 100 with Relapse and top 200 with Curtain Call

Eminem continues to dominate the charts with 3 entries in the Top 200. He failed to regain the top spot with releases from Disturbed and Now 35 taking the top spots. But Mr. Mathers still holds down the 3, 87, and 137 spots. While Usher lost ground on both his entries, Drake moved up a couple spots to 16.
