T.I. Moves 468,000 Copies of New Album, Lands at No. 1 on Billboard Charts

ti-cover.jpgT.I. has scored his second consecutive No. 1 album with T.I. vs. T.I.P. Although the July 4 holiday landed right in the middle of his release week, the self proclaimed King of the South managed to move a very respectable 468,000 copies of his fifth LP, surpassing his closest competitor on the charts by nearly 300,000 units. The impressive debut came just short of surpassing the first week numbers for his previous album, King, which sold 522,000 back in March 2006.

  • Mashilious

  • brebre

    GOOD FOR T.I. YOU CAN’T HATE ON HIM FOR DOING WELL. ESPECIALLY IN HIP-HOP THESE DAYS.

    ANYBODY KNOWS WHAT THE 3RD SINGLE WILL BE?

  • JDoug

    TIP is gonna sell regardless, his name is out dere and he got a lotta faithfuls.so he gone sell. I think his other albums are better as far as hits with the majority of people, but alot of tracks is vintage Tip and if u a true TI fan, den dats what it is. Its a lot of haters of dere thats gone hate, but remember Tip went through a lot in this past year, and he just rap bout it on da CD, so dont fault the man, give him his due props

  • me

  • andrew

  • Guy8

    FUCK YEA TI…FUCK DA HATERS and the bad reviews. the numbers dont lie. people like this shit. he’ll go gold in a week and plat in a month…maybe 2

  • baby jordan

    rap music gets to see another day. could you imagine if his album would’ve bombed. the labels would’ve stopped fuc ing with rap music. the bad side to this is you know lyor cohen and kevin liles are gonna make this guy drop an album every year like they did with jay-z. he doesn’t have the talent of a jay-z to keep us interested so you can bet he will be another dmx.

  • josh

    yea tip sold 468,000 the 1st week so all u up north haters can love it or leave it

  • gkid12345

    Wow 3 years ago T.i would have been nothing but if record sales were as they were three years ago he would have probly sold double. This just shows that hiphop is alive, and for the moment in the south cuz jeezy, luda, t.i and a few others are the only ones sellin, until 50 of course

  • hokus

    I almost didn’t buy TI vs TIP because of this website’s one-sided shit-writing. But I went on some “other” web-sites and found some much more realistic and balanced journalism. no body lickin his balls of nuthin, but a more honest review anyway. So I copped it and I’m glad I did. ThanX XXL for being a bunch of douchebags! If it weren’t for you I wouldn’t have realized that the internet is full of people who are full of shit. FUCK OFF!

  • http://xxlmag.com illp

    Not bad for hip hop these days he score a good first week after jay z it’s t.i that selling the most can’t wait too see 50 cent to the biggest number of the last 2 year and make hater shut the fuck up

  • http://xxlmag.com Big L

    T.I. managed to move 468,00 copies, when the record sales these days are plumiting.But yet, XXl Magazine rates his album an L.Sounds like you critics arent doing your job right. I cant wait until T.I. goes platinum once again so he can stand up in front of all the haters when hes receiving an award and say ,”It’s The King Homie!!”

  • Alex

    T.I. is hip-hop along with 50 man its a good day today

  • not a ti fan

    WHO BOUGHT THAT ALBUM?

  • TheManMythLegend

    Thank God people on this web-site are not cryin like they are on HipHopDx. They are so sad that T.I. sold 400+ and pharoahe monch sold like 2 copies.

    Please dont compare T.I., Jeezy, and Luda to Young Joc…….he could be one of the worst rapper’s in the south.

    Oh yeah and Atl is T.I.’s city……Luda would be 2nd in line trust me I know cuz I live here

    JULEZ SANTANA-….LMAO

    JAY Z- NOW, IM A DIE HARD JIGAA FAN, BUT “KINGDOM COME” WAS A LIL BIT OF A LET DOWN

    LIL CEASE- STRIPS FOR DUDES…HOMMO

    ….MAN, I CAN GO ALL DAY. ILL ADMIT THE SOUTH HAS ITS FAR SHARE OF SUBPAR MUSIC, BUT NY AINT TOO FAR BEHIND, DATS REAL TALK!!

    BTW “T.I. VS T.I.P.”- OK….NOT WACK….BUT OK. NOT AS GODD AS “KING”, AND LIGHT YEARS BEHIND “TRAP MUSIC”
