DMX Album Debuts at #2 for the First Time in His Career

dmx3.jpgDMX’s sixth studio LP, Year of The Dog…Again, will debut in the number two spot on the charts this week, with around 126,000 units sold. This is a first for the rapper, whose previous five albums have all debuted at number one after their first week’s sales. X was beaten out by the latest installment of the Now That’s What I Call Music pop compilation, which barely edged him out with slightly more than 127,000 copies scanned. Although this is still a relatively good debut for the recent Sony signee, it represents a huge drop from his customary first week numbers. His previous few albums moved over 300,000 copies in their first weeks in stores. Elsewhere on the charts, Gnarls Barkley is expected to sink a few spots after their debut, St. Elsewhere, moved 53,000 units.

    Now That’s What I Call Music?
    man that shit sucks.
    them albums is garbage.
    dmx obviously ain’t a priority over at
    the sony records.
    x ain’t gotten no airplay from the
    two singles that he put out.
    his videos didn’t fare much better either.
    the album is solid.
    if only a few more people would have
    picked up a copy it would’ve beaten
    out that wack ass Now That’s What I
    Call Music bullshit.

  • its official

    Is it really lack of promotion or lack of interest? All the major outlets favor the latest from the likes of Yung Joc over DMX.

  • mr agee

    i demand a recount.

  • Mr.Me

    Sony’s wack. Thats why Bone Thugs left them.

  • Prince of the South

    Damn NY need to start holding they artists down. Jay and 50 going to have to drop soon to save you all from finishing last. DMX is a beast, but that horrible I KNOW YOU SEE IT and IT’S GOING DOWN is getting a bulk of radio play. NY need to stand up. That makes four flops. LL, Mobb Deep, Busta, and now X. All the albums were good, LL was okay too many guest spots. Stand Up NY. It’s a reason why we run rap, we support each other. Wait until Rick Ross numbers come in.

  • Dipset

    WTF???? i know wen everybodys cd comes out…. i check it like every other day and i didnt know x’s cd came out!!!… thats the worst promotion i have ever seen so if that nigga sold 127,000 copies and debut at number 2 he deserves a standing ovation!!! god damn!!! im clappin for that nigga right now!!! wooooo… its DIPSET BITCH!!!!

  • BT

    X is that nigga, who would’ve thought that somebody as street and rugged as him would sell 20 million albums and have 5 straight #1 albums to start a career, nobody has ever done that, too bad the streak broke this time ’cause “Year Of The Dog…Again” is by far some of the best hip-hop this year, but nobody selling anymore anyway, even Dem Franchise Boys with their candy ass music struggle to go gold, btw can’t wait till he does “Belly 2″ wit Nas

  • jonjon-23

    New York Nigga, your a retard. DMX was a pretty good rapper back in the day, but eventually people move on. He probably hurt himself by taking a hiatus.

    SALES DONT MEAN QUALITY ANYWAY.

    DMX DONT CARE ABOUT SALES ANYWAY, ANYONE WHO KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT HIM KNOWS HE DONT MAKE MUSIC, HE RECORDS HIS LIFE WITH MUSIC, ITS A TITE ALBUM ANYWAY, GO OUT N BUY IT

  • http://speedbored.blogspot.com (Still) Searching For Jimmy Hoffa

    Yo, I’m getting sick and tired of all these niggas talking about “real hip-hop”. Shit, hiphop is an expression of self, right? If a nigga is expressing himself through some “lean with it, rock with it” shit, as much as I hate to say it, more power to him. I feel that whatever a person’s feeling at the moment when they go and put the track down, if that shit’s coming from the heart, it’s real, whether it’s on some D4L type shit, some Tupac shit, or some Bone Thugs/3 6 type shit.

  • http://myspace.com/spmusic Solid Projects

    Its sad to judge music by its 1st week numbers, however with all the marketing punch (BET, news media, blogs, internet) it may be an indication that rap consumers aren’t buying into the new DMX. I can tell you that the transition in Def Jam may have spelled the end of a lot of emcee’swe grew up with in the 90′s. Method Man, Redman, Ghostface should take note.

  • Belize

    album was wack..except for #13 and 14

  • iiite serious where was the PROMOTION??!?!!!!!1

    omg sum1 plz tell me where the promotion was? cus i aint see any, the only shit that i saw said it came out on the 11th of august =S WTF SONY!!!!!

    the album was iite 3mic MAX (and x is one of my top 5, so no hate man just honestly). was not a great album, wasn’t a poor album either though.

    B U T S H I T!!!

    Blown Away, was some whole other shit, he switched up his content a bit more, the sound was quality, he killed that track – - – - – - – - -

    but HE GOT KILLED on ‘come through (move)’ by busta,,,, shiiittttttt

  • Young L

    For the record, 126,000 in his first week isn’t bad…even if he does have promotion on his reality show (of him actin a complete ass). The album is decent and I’m sure it’ll probly go at least gold.

  • H-man

    Go 2 KOCH DMX…Do sum actin, your an awesome actor…he’ll give your career a kick in da ass

  • H-man

    oh yeah, Gnarls wit dat crazy shit…If I ever meet ya Im gonna kick your bitch ass…then U can really call me crazy…God damn your soul

  • Petey Cent

    You know what all of us here need to do? We need to go get the album and make it #1. Spread the word around that it’s hot and hopefully next week it’ll be #1.

  • iM a baY nIGGA
  • jaytrill_2012

    this album will go platinum. i thought it was a hot

  • jonjon-23

    Some of you east coast gentlemen are very amusing. You take yourselves way to serious in this rap game. You would think by listening to some of you that your rappers have a Phd, when in reality, they couldn’t spell Phd. You cats will continue to act smart and continue to fall off. Yeah ‘son’ I’m talking to all of you stupid niggas. Some south lyracists clown and act silly (see Ying Yang twins and Pretty Ricky) but at least they aren’t in denial like some of you. I have nothing against someone who kicks knowledge and actually makes sense (see Public Enemy). I will say that most of New York rappers (and many southern lyracists) can’t even conduct a decent interview. Know what I’m sayin son?

  • shadykillaz

    sony is wack and promotion did play a huge factor

    thats y x needs to sign to interscope
    and put his own lable on the map

    they got aftermath, shady, g-unit

  • matt

    yo x is the truth, and the album is a 4.5 of 5. swizz(aka the best producer ever)killed the tracks he did,the album is better than 80% of the good artists albums out. x will still go at least platium. and there is a lack of promotion, i didnt know the album was out unto the monday after it was released.the whole Ruff Ryders, Full Surface, J records is going to take over the world again like back in 1999, 2000.all ya haters fix ya face

  • http://www.xxlmag.com L.A.’s Finest

    I dont’ know what to say. DMX still cool though, but nothing like he used to be. You can’t hold it to ‘em though, ’cause he does have some classic hits. Anyway WESTCOAST 4 LIFE

  • Cali

    say wut???, X has a new album out??, no promotion, thats wack ima go get it now i didnt even know it was out yet….that sucks cuz X is one of the realest MC’s ever out, he talk the real shit and backs up everythin he says, wit better promotion he would have crushed the charts, i didnt even know he dropped, but im bout to go get it, repsect to DMX, one of the hardest rappers ever
    4 real!!!

  • Cali

    this is one of the best songs X has came out wit, some of my favorite lyrics, reason y i think he talks the real shit…………….

    the song is called More To A Song

    “It’s more to a song than, jewelry and clothes
    More to a n***** life than, money and hoes
    The game is a lot bigger than you, think you know
    And if you think you know, then I don’t think you know”

    “walk around frontin talkin bout jewels
    how much you bust tools, y’all n***** sounds like fools
    Who you really think give a fuck how much your watch cost?
    How much your watch cost? You bout to get your watch lost
    If you flashin it, you must not want it
    See I fuck with real n***** that done it
    You know what time it is, run it!
    N***** got more important shit to deal with
    Talkin about some 4 wheel shit
    but my man here is about to kill shit”

    those rhymes by DMX, that shit is sick, off the And Then There Was X Album

  • rap-artis

    Bad publicity is all I can say. And not only that, even Virgin Masterstores ain’t keepin’ this album on their shelves. Maybe X should’ve contacted G-Unit to promote his new shit & sell a lot more copies.

  • Dee

    Give the nigga a break, everybody gotta say something when their words mean nothin, he sold millions of records and people still gotta find someway to discredit a niggas hustle, too many critics and not enough hiphop listeners

  • bmort

    Im a big dmx fan til the end but even I have to admit that he makes a fool out of himself with jus about everything he do. he need some help. da nigga makes millions but he act like he still struggling in da streets and dat shit baffles me because he always seem like he mad about something. i know he mad cause there are people still struggling but we cant save the world and that makes no excuse for him to start using drugs neither.to me his music is the same its just the person that people arent buying into. plus dat nigga is bi polar as hell. the whole reality tv show is a very dumb idea. i know niggas wanna say “but dats x dat nigga real as hell” true but its still a dumb idea. if it were nelly niggas would be calling him commercial all day.

  • Willie Amerson

    Yeah Year of The Dog…Again Debuted at Number 2, for DMX it’s a first but I found it the Album is Great, Impressive Comeback for the Dog. I’m a fan of DMX I think Year of The Dog…Again Rivals even “It’s Dark and Hell is Hot” call me crazy if you listen to some of the tracks carefully the DMX of old is resurfacing on tracks like “We In Here” & “Come Thru”. Cut The Man a break besides He had 5 Number 1# Albums since 1998 it isn’t X’s fault or Sony’s I knew when the album cam out they had posters, articles and everything it’s that you got this so-called hip-hop fans force fed this wack music that X will never sale what he did in the past. Overall I like the album my fav tracks are “Lord, Give me a Sign” one of X’s more powerful songs ever. “Blown Away” radio needs to play this, “Come Thru” “it’s Personal” “Goodbye” & “Life Be My Song” I’m sick of everyone saying X fell off he didn’t, the quality of music ain’t the same no more because so much bull is sellin now it’s sad when Young Joc, all the other bubblegum rappers sell better than X because I heard most of there music I used they cds for frisbees X will go platinum regardless but it don’t even matter because on the dvd that comes with the album he admits he do music not for money, but for love and the man is right it’s about love not the money something we forgot since Hip-hop sold out but other than that Hip-Hop needs artists like DMX who speaks for the heart and one more thing all the people hating on X when X was hot bet each and every one of ya’ll was banging his music but now he ain’t on top no more his washed up or fell out X is still X to me and I will continue buying his music if he would have been singin like ja rule you still would hate on this man and that’s real say whut you want…..

    DMX WHY DID YOU LEAVE DEF JAM DUDE?

  • Brian

    Yo first off DMX DOES NOT even care about record sales. Never has in his career. When he was on Def Jam they cared about that which is why he kept coming in at number 1. But since those days they have been messing with his albums, messing with promotions, and messing with his business deals so that’s why he left. They were screwing him. To tell you the truth I don’t give a fuck about that. A hot album is a hot album. This, to me, is a classic all over again. Glad to see the DOG can still put out a solid album.

  • IL Duce

    well to me i thought it was pretty good for someone who was supose to retire. i mean i always been a X fan…but we all know that in the summertime no one really cares about a nigga who is talking some real street, relate to type of musik. all people care about in the summer is party musik and it sucks becuase a lot of people judge people of units and when they dont sell a lot of people think “oh he sucks” or “oh he’s washed”. now also take in to consideration that he barely got pub and really who has sony made into a hit??? anyways all im saying is that i enjoyed his album and if you give X the pub he deserves and if he drops somewhere like around late october early november…then his album goes platinum..hands down…oh yea and i got a question, has anyone that droped this summer gone platinum???

  • realtalk12

    DMX is tha best rapper livin cuz hes 1 of a very few people dat talks bout real shit. he isnt a wack ass commercial rapper like rick ross. dat bitch rick ross got #1 album last week, dats when u know rap has gone down when a fake ass nigga scores #1, DMX is back but its too bad hes not gettin good promotion from sony. u guys should get his new album cuz its da best so far dis year.
