The Beastie Boys and Pharoahe Monch Make Debut on Billboard Chart, The Shop Boyz and Fabolous Slip

beastie_boys.jpgThe Beastie Boys score the highest selling hip-hop debut this week with their new instrumental LP, Mix-Up. The project moved just under 44,000 units and will land at No. 15 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart next week. Next up, Queens native Pharoahe Monch enters at No. 58 with his long awaited sophomore solo album, Desire. Unfortunately, for the former Organized Konfusion MC, anticipation did not translate into huge sales, with consumers picking up only 12,000 copies of the disc in its first week in stores. Elsewhere on the charts, Fabolous slips out of the Top 10, dropping eight spots to No. 17, after selling another 38,000 copies of his Def Jam debut From Nothin’ To Somethin. Also sliding this week is Atlanta trio, The Shop Boyz. Although they managed to scan another 28,000 units of their debut album, Rockstar Mentality, they will still move down 12 spots to No. 23.
