T.I. Continues Billboard Reign, Takes No. 1 Spot for Second Week
T.I. maintains his dominance of the Billboard Top 200 Chart this week with his latest offering T.I. vs. T.I.P. topping the week’s releases once again. In its second week in stores, and an otherwise quiet week for hip-hop releases, the King of the South’s fifth studio LP sold another 175,000 copies. Although that number represents a 63 percent drop off from the impressive 465,000 units he moved last week, Tip still managed to best rock group Smashing Pumpkins by about 30,000 discs to take the No. 1 spot. Elsewhere on the charts, we see Fabolous holding strong at No. 25 despite a 24 percent slide. His latest, From Nothin’ to Somethin’, sold another 27,000 discs to bring him to a to date total of 319,432.
