Hip Hop Album Sales: Week Ending 4/6/08

Bad Boy, Slip N' Slide and Poe Boy run the charts, as veterans 8Ball, AZ and Devin The Dude fight for chances.

Bad Boy's Day 26 drops three places to #4 with their self titled debut
selling just under 51,000 this week. The Diddy-created boy band was beat
out by albums from George Strait, R.E.M., and the popular music
compilation Now That's What I Call Music Volume 27, respectively.
Southern femcee Trina proves she's indeed Still Da Baddest with her
latest effort topping the rap charts and landing her the #6 spot on the
Billboard Top 200 selling 46,700 units in her first week. Danity Kane's
Welcome To The Dollhouse follows closely behind at #7 with just under
46.600 sold. Rick Ross rounds out the top 10, this week dropping from #6
to #9 as Trilla sells 41,000 in its fourth week on the charts.

Flo Rida, despite criticisms that his album could not be carried very
far by his hit single "Low" and his second, popular but less successful
single "Elevator," still remains afloat on the charts at #15. Mail On
Sunday
sold just under 28k this week while Snoop Dogg's Ego Trippin'
dropped from #13 to #21 with 23,600 sold. Even with a slew of
near-classic reviews causing massive buzz for Gnarls Barkley's
sophomore effort The Odd Couple, the two still can't seem to make that
buzz reflect on the charts as they dropped from #12 to #22 selling 23,000
this week. Further down the charts, Lupe Fiasco's The Cool inches
towards gold with 441,000 sold total.

Will the Bad Boy reign continue? Do upcoming indies Keak Da Sneak and Kidz In The Hall have room in the Top 200 for them? Perhaps The Roots can drum up some chart movement after their single makes its rounds. Stay tuned...
