While some big releases from well known Hip Hop artists found their way onto the charts this week, none could unseat the mighty Alicia Keys.

Alicia Keys
is still going strong as she lands the #2 spot this week selling over 234k and is well on her way to going double platinum.

Now for the week of many debuts! Scarface's much anticipated M.A.D.E. debuted this week at #17 with just under 63k sold. DJ Drama's Gangsta Grillz debuted at #26 selling 48.7k, while Wyclef's Carnival 2 debuted at a disappointing #28 considering his cross-over appeal. Ghostface's Big Doe Rehab, despite great reviews, still missed the top 40 and instead took #41 with 35.5k sold.

Further down on the charts, Styles P grabbed the # 52 spot for Super Gangster with 28.5 sold. 2Pac 's Best Of 2-part series took the #65 and #77 spot, respectively. Part 1 sold 22.5k, while Part 2 sold just under 19k. Rap legend Too Short debuted Get Off The Stage at #160 this week selling 8k, while Crunk Hits, a compilation album featuring some of your favorite southern rappers, debuted at #196 with 6k copies sold.
