Young Dro, Method Man and The Roots Debut in the Top 10
On this week’s album charts, T.I. affiliate Young Dro lands in the number three spot with slightly over 104,000 units sold of his major label debut The Best Thang Smokin’. Powered by his hit single “Shoulder Lean,” Dro will also knock Outkast’s Idlewild soundtrack out of the number one spot on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts. Idlewild itself moved an additional 78,000 units this week and thus will remain on Billboard 200 at number seven. Also landing in the Top 10 this week are two Def Jam releases, Method Man’s 4:21 The Day After, and The Roots’ Game Theory. Meth will take the number eight slot with just over 62,000 copies sold and The Roots follow close behind at number nine, moving about 61,000 units. Elsewhere on this week’s charts, Bay Area legend Too Short lands at number 14 after selling about 40,000 copies of his latest, Blow The Whistle.
