Fergie and Chingy Score Top 10 Debuts, Lupe Fiasco Lands at #12

chingy2.jpgBlack Eyed Peas singer/rapper Fergie scores the highest debut on the charts this week, landing at #3 with over 142,000 copies sold of her solo debut The Dutchess. Chingy lands the next highest spot at #8 after moving slightly over 70,000 copies of his sophomore effort Hoodstar. Those two releases mark the only hip-hop debuts to make the Top 10 this week, as Lupe Fiasco takes the number 12 spot with around 58,000 copies sold of his debut album Food & Liquor. Elsewhere on the charts, Bone Thugs grabs #31 with their Koch project Thug Stories, DJ Shadow’s The Outsider comes in at #94, and underground staples Jedi Mind Tricks bring up the rear at #131 with their 5th LP Servants In Heaven, Kings In Hell.

    This goes out to everybody who be crying about their favorite artist not selling records. First of all now a days is not about the quality of your music, it’s about making a hit record, here you have Food & Liquor in my opinion the best album of 2006 (til Kingdom Come drops that is) the album was led by ”Kick, Push” a great record but not a club-record nor a radio-record, which is what these record labels are looking for they want radio play, spins, on the other hand here you have Yung Joc’s New Joc City one of the worst albums in history NOT JUST RAP but music history, led by ”It’s Going Down” as stupid as a song could get but, catchy, radio-friendly and a club banger, his album is approaching platinum. Sure i think Atlantic could have done more for Lupe’s project but, at the end of the day blame yourself for that, cause you all knew his album was coming out but, once the album leaked not once but twice everybody already had download it or copped the bootleg. That’s why you don’t see artist like Lupe Fiasco selling millions of records because, he’s music is not on the radio 24/7, you don’t see his video every hour and you don’t hear him at the club which is where all the white kids listen to all this garbage snap-music, you spend the whole night tryin’ to hear some State Prop ”Roc The Mic” and all you get is some ”Laffy Taffy” and you have no choice but, to stand and watch the cute white girl who can’t dance all night so you can holla at her after the club.

  • Doc Flav

    I Have come to the conclusion that fans need stay out of the business aspect of music. Anytime you can come and judge an albums merit behind one weeks sales, you a bad motherfucker. First weeks numbers mean nothing to noone except the label and they are even not foolish enough to believe that their investment has failed. Fans are trying to turn the game into a scoring contest, not knowing that sales can increase, decrease or remain steady, sometimes it may take a year for a record to in platinum. I recall EPMD bragging back in the day “thirty days later, the lp went gold. So what you sayin?”

  • Doc Flav

    “to go” One day fans are also going to stop blaming other artists for thier favorites not selling. Evidently people like that snap and south music thats why they buying it. Get of them artists and thier fans shit and stop hatin, cause thats what you all are doing.

  • latinpistol

    it aint jus rap. notin sellin thses days.

  • Enlightened

    jordany -

    I feel you. But what makes a hit record now though? You don’t mean a hit, you mean a song that gets played on the radio all day. Like I always say, they playing games with our heads.
    If “Kick Push” would have got as many spins as “It’s Goin Down” or “Laffy Taffy”, it would have sold way more than it did.
    Nobody really believes “Laffy Taffy” got that many spins because it’s quality work.
    Not just saying you, but people need to stop saying that people won’t buy music that’s not ignorant. That’s bullshit. The radio propaganda system won’t allow other types of music to get played. And regardless of who you are, that subliminal shit of hearing a nigga 20 times a day, will at least make you give nigga a listen. Lupe has internet hype – that shit don’t translate to the streets. Think about it, who downloads the most music? The same muthafuckas that are on these blogs and other members of the “internet community.”
    What’s the difference between Kanye and these other niggas (Lupe, Rhymefest, etc.) sales. That nigga got a helluva lot of radio spins off top.

    ENLIGHTENED- i agree with you too but, what i was saying is that on blogs like this all you hear is people crying about their favorite artist not selling records, when you got the same people that are crying downloading music and buying booyleg cds and the ones that don’t download they usually have a friend with a computer that once he gets a hold of the music he makes all his boys a copy of it. I think we can agree that if we ask around way more than a million people would say they’re Lupe Fiasco but, not all of them will buy his albums.

  • art oro

    chingy 1st that first single sucked. Go beg for a job At DTP. Cuz u need them

  • MoneyMakin’Mitch

    I don’t give a fuck how much Lupe sell, he the truth! American Terrorist and the 3rd verse on Hurt Me Soul is nuts! The units wll move in time Lupe, hold your head high because u went against the grain and still had a debut top 20 album. Congrats fam. Chingy, what can I say”…/can I have some dinner with some dessert?” He the worst wit’ a nerf. I’m from Miami and even I know CHA$E is the hottest nigga n St. Louis. U a&rs need 2 get off y’all ass and sign some real talent. Chingy must be suckin’ hella dick at Capitol because I don’t know what warranted the release of this album. He been through ever since he left DTP. Jermaine can’t save u “Lil Howard”…

  • L.A.WILSON JR

    This was Chingy’s 3rd album. My girl bought me the album last week. Needless to say I haven’t talked to her all week. Lol. But real talk, Lupe’s lp is dope. I do mean crack. His has a flow, wordplay, lyrics, a story to tell, and substance. Sometimes that sells, ie. Common’s last album, Jay’s album, Nas’s early work, Eminem, and Obie’s. But besides those, it’s very difficult for someone with true MCing skills to translate those skills into sells, ie. Jin. Lol. Better luck next time Lupe, I love the album, no downloading.

  • reezbo

    Some people just don’t get it. I agree that 1st week sales r quite important but they r no indicator of a cathegorical F-L-O-P. Look at Akon’s LP Trouble who sold about 5k copies his first week, and 2 months later was certified gold and in no time reached platinum status. Most of the people who r quick to call out flops have never supported an artist in their entire lives( supporting meaning buying the artists CD not bootleg). Please either make constructive criticism or shut the hell up, comprende!

  • http://www.streethsitory.com Ryan

    Chingy’s album is terrible, Lupe’s shit should be well above that.

  • BE

    IF anybody Flopped it’s Chingy…who’s song is played a million times a day on BET and who has been number 1 on 106 & Park all summer. Also this is his 3rd album! He didn’t even break the 100,000 mark. For a debute album that doesn’t even get radio play..I’d say that is pretty good. I bet your favorite artist hasn’t even broken gold. Unless your a 50 Cent fan, but we all know white people buy his records.

    Damn Shame Damn Shame. I really liked Lupe’s Project (esp. The Best Buy one with the 3 extra tracks ck. Carrera Lu and Tilted). Chingy I can’t bring myself to buy since his horrible debut (I still feel burned after buying that.) Fergie was a huge disappointment I know it’s gonna be pop but it’s some really weak pop sh*t. I Like DJ Shadow but just didn’t buy it. Poor Sales reflects poor marketing and my archnemesis MTV/Viacom, If they don’t want to whore you out prepare to see alot of your CDs sitting in the warehouse.

  • Diddy816

    Lupe Fiasco did not flop on this album. People sleep on this album, all I gotta say is did anyone run out and buy Nas Illmatic when it first came out…. NO they didnt and remember it is a classic just like Food and Liquot is.

  • Still P

    Isn’t this Chingy’s THIRD album? Not his second? Sophmore album is usually referred to as the artists second album-not their third. There was Jackpot and Powerballin, and now Hoodstar.

  • 11kap

    dumb ass haters killed the rap game, because they got their noses in too many people’s business. They wanna tell you what to buy like this is a fickin presidential campaign. Most rappin niggas came from the gutter, so act like ya know, bitches. most of us ain’t rich, so we relate to regular real ass niggas from the hood. Rec execs only wanna show u rich niggas but that shit ain’t reality.

  • http://www.whatsdabizniz.com Keyz

    Depends on what folks want to call a FLOP. If you define an album that is Extremely Well-Crafted, each track has been Thought-out and not just made while a nigga was high, and each track tries to reach to a new height and subject matter than the one before, then Yeah I guess Lupe did Flop. Chingy shouldn’t have sold 1 Record if you ask me. Why dont we judge niggas by they thought process while they making a record, as a Measure of Success.

    Keyz

  • leo

    the only ones left to go platinum this year are: Lloyd Banks, The Game, Fat Joe, 50 Cent, Young Buck, and Nas. hate them or love them u kno the the main gunit cats arent gonna flop like mobb deep and yayo. and the game has the most anticapted album ever. and fat joe is getting better, and the make it rain single is hot. so we’ll see. and nas is nas.

  • VICK

    Lipe is dope but his style isnt felt like it once was…If u like real rap stick to underground

  • bTek

    Lupe shouldn’t be concerned with his sales; there’s a lot of quality on Food. Personally I love it but I can’t say there’s any ground breaking shit there.

    If you’ve listened to it or know anything bout Lupe I think you’d know he’s not chasing dollar like other niggas out there… Sure he wants a hit record but can you really compare him to Chingy?

    He’ll be touring a while now and making noise inter-nat-ion-all-y. Look at Common; only really blown up in the past few years but heads have known it for years. I wonder how many Resurrection sold on debut? It peaked at #179!

    By who’s standards did ” Lupe Fiasco’s Food and Liquor” flop? Why are we judging whats good and whats not using unreliable numbers that, for all we know, some high powered executive pulled out of a hat. The real test is the test of time. Listen to the music and judge for yourself, do not let numbers or some executive determine what you should like or dislike. (Besides, it did not flop because Best Buy screwed up.)

That dumb dudundudun shit that Fergie and Chingy put out is for money only–and neither one of them get the largest cut. I agree–Chingy is a sore on my ass and Fergie reminds me of one of those white girls who used to hang around all the brothers just to give em head.White bread Fergie. They’re the worst. Lupe’s is art and a breath of fresh air–wordisbond. Philly loves you.
