T.I.’s King Rules the Charts, Ghostface Catches the #4 Spot

TI.jpgT.I.’s fourth album King has officially conquered the album charts, selling 531,000 units in its first week, making it the highest-selling debut of 2006 so far. The album will enter the Billboard 200 Albums chart at #1, which marks the first time the Atlanta rapper has topped the chart.

Additionally, Ghostface’s critically-hailed Fishscale will debut on the album chart at #4, selling over 110,000 units. This marks the Staten Island native’s highest debut since Ironman debuted at #2 in 1996. King and Fishscale will take the #1 and 2 spots on the Hip-Hop/R&B album chart, respectively.

    Thats all great, but why didnt ATL come in at number one in the box office? TI im sure will not be pleased that both his cd and movie didnt come in at number one..as he said in xxl he wanted both number ones..but KING is the best cd of the year yet, period..TI basicially killed every beat he touched and the album is gonna get even more sales with females and people who dont know Ti and what the south about when he releases why u wanna cuz that crystal waters sample is killin it rite now’big up to TI AND ATL

  • Jerz!

    Damn, that boi TI killed it foreal. 533??? And he does destroy those beats. But let’s not get it twisted…Fishscale is lyrically, conceptually, and musically the best album of the year.

  • Jizzle

    TI is gay why are you people supporting his bullshit
    Syke he is pretty tight I havent coped KING yet but I’v heard most of it that CD would just be Trap Muzic Pt.2 if it wasn’t for the production big ups to Just Blaze and Manny Fresh they had some dope beats on there
    What’s really hot is Fichscale Ghostface killed it he had badass production too big ups to MF Doom & Pete Rock on the beats, The Album is like Wu tang 06′ he stays true to his Staten Isle Roots and straight gutta style that should have pushed 500,000 units

  • gerv

    Anybody talkin about Gostface’s album is better than TI”s is from the east coast and it shows. Get over it the east coast ain’t running rap right now.Yeah I’m from the west coast that’s why I call it like I see it.Ghostface’s album it tight as fuck but TI got him beat and TI can rap regardlest of what east coast haters might say.I’m not talking about the whole east coast either.Only the mad muthafuckas that hate that they coast ain’t on top.So they talk bad about the south and any west coast artist that has a serious buzz.

  • chico34

    dats wut it do t.i. im along time fan,every since “im serious”,i knew what da business was long before dis album T.I. IS DA NEWS.p.s.GERV;I feel ya pimp

  • Jerz!

    I’m definitly with the fact that TI can rap his ass off, I don’t believe myself specifically came across as a hater. But King better than Fishscale? It’s hard to event type that. While a dope, dope, album, King doesnt cover all the grounds that Fishscale does. Between the skits, the lyrics, the music itself, and concepts? Ghost is clearly on a different level than the rest of the game. And thats not to say anything bad about any coast, cause @ first I hoped that Nas wouldn’t come out this year because I don’t think he could get years best over Fishscale either. But yeah there it is, no hate, happy to have 2 more quality albums in the collection.

  • SummerZ

    i knew that T.I could pull it thru, but i’m maaaad proud that ghost is up there too, its been a long time coming…

  • amanda

  • Young T

    Why’s it gotta be a fucking competition? Ghost and T.I. are completely different and are both sick in their way. And of course T.I. is gonna sell more he’s way more commercial.

  • Mozeek

    BIGUP to T.I. and Ghost. I copped both
    of their albums. NOTHIN’ BUT FIRE!!!

  • tfab

    congratualation kingofthasouth

  • http://groups.yahoo.com/group/AusarsPlace The God

    TI is way to corny. this is THE weakest dude out of the south. how the hell he get a record deal. It says something about a person who run around callin himself the King. titles like that are given by the people, not self given. he want to be important sooooo bad. TI should be dead last in my book. Ghost on the other hand IS hip hop. This God is tight and has been from jump. He has never sold out like TI commericals

  • http://yahoo South Repasenta

    T.I. got the game on lock. U cant hate da man cause he shows everybody love except that old lame ass rapper lil flip. I’m from texas and the dude is the worst rapper we got, and for ghostface he keeps puttin it down every time.

Punk asses is scared, on top of that a lot of atl is full of NYC, but yall aint up here talkin all of that shit? Things that make you say huumm?

  • Big O

    except Gerv, no exception

  • http://xxlmag nigga 3 fist

    Ghost is the man aint no better Everybody get that straight WUTang Muthfuckas WuTang

  • Jared

    Fishscales is brilliant…I dont give a fuck whether 100 or 100 million buy this cd, it doesnt change ANYTHING about how i feel about ghostface or fishscales. Record sales don’t mean shit because most people don’t know good hip hop anyway. And how the fuck can you compare east coast to west coast? Not only did Wu-Tang(greatest rap group ever) come out of NY, ARE WE FORGETTIN ABOUT BIG L. IF BIG L NEVER GOT SHOT HE WOULD BE KING OF NY. But for now its ghostface and im cool with that. FUCK DIPSET

  • LocaDiff

Man da west coast suck. Why you think Dre ain’t been scoutin over there?Every one he done fucked wit was from da MW or East.50 had to bring the Game to his attention.Ya’ll niggas garbage. Ya’ll cain’t even get a winna on 106-n-Park’s freestyle friday.Da East Coast took off dey belt like Pops off da Wayne’s Bros show and beat ya’ll ass in the late 90′s.Now the south is fixin to do what ya’ll tried so long to do and dat’s eliminated east coast hip hop.BITCH!!!!!!!!!!

  • Andrew

    50 is the best sells 1.15 million in first week, had 4 songs in the top 10 on billboard at the same time, ti sucks

  • http://hotmail.com 615bANGA

    King is better than Fishscale but since a lot of people are talkin about the albums and whos better than who , maybe T.I and Ghostface should work together
