Billboard Charts Reprocessed, Lupe Lands In Top 10
Due to a system error at a major retailer, Billboard was forced to recalculate its chart rankings for the week ending September 24. As a result, Lupe Fiasco’s Food and Liquor has moved up several spots on the Top 200 list to land at number eight. Because of the error, Lupe’s sales for his debut week had previously been recorded at around 58,000 units, however with the adjusted data, he now stands at around 80,000 units sold, pushing him past Chingy to make his album the top selling rap debut for the reporting period in question. The recalculation also places Food and Liquor at # 2, right behind Justin Timberlake, on the Top Hip-Hop/R&B Albums chart, on which he had previously been ranked #4.
