Webbie’s Savage Life 2 Leads Billboard Debuts

Webbie had the best selling Hip-Hop debut this week with his new project Savage Life 2 which, powered by his Lil Phat and Boosie assisted single “Independent,” moved 72,800 copies in its first week and will debut at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The Baton Rouge native won a decisive victory over Shawty Lo, whose hit single “Dey Know” has been enjoying heavy rotation nationwide. The Atlanta MC and founding member of D4L moved just over 31,000 copies of his debut solo album Units In The City and will take the No. 13 spot. Elsewhere on the charts we see Pete Rock landing at No. 193 after selling 3,900 copies of his latest offering, NY’s Finest.

    I was hoping webbie did at least 100k but he’s still in a good spot right now. He’ll probably grab a gold plaque before the year ends.

    I bought this & that Shawty Lo album. He’s independent so he won’t sell more than about 2-300k max anyway so he’s cool also. They both made good albums, it’s good to see Webbie high up on the charts though

    With other acts out there like Shawty Lo, its a given. Its the current state of the game. Its gonna be funny when we look back at the 2000 era. Its gonna be reminiscent of pop in the 1980′s.

    Call me a hater but Webbie is complete garbage. Remember when there used to be major albums released by new artists that made a big splash, like Doggystyle? The last one was probably Get Rich or Die Tryin’…

    • ATL = All Trannies Live

      Dude Webbie didn’t have anywhere near the support Snoop and 50 cent had. Snoop and 50 had DR DRE EXECUTIVE PRODUCING!!!! All Webbie got is a couple of inhouse cats laying it down. Webbie is a regional rapper not an internation superstar point blank. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

      Congrats Webbie!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Shawty Lo I hate you b/c you’re responsible for D4L.

    @the brown…

    nigga this the best album of 08… i feel sorry for you close minded dudes who judge albums off of pop singles….

    my favorite track right now is DOE DOE

    • http://xxlmag.com the brown

      Hey we’ll see. I just think they sound like a bunch of girls- hollerin’ n shit. Maybe I’ll hear sumthin later that’s tight to me.

      That Shawty Lo is wack too, but the”Dey Know” remix wit Luda n Weezy is two of the tightest verses.

    If yall wanna here “The Hottest Mixtape” on the net for free u need to download this mixtape NOW!!! It’s a new artist I came across, he calls himself Kayda Luchiano…He’s from the Bay Area but seemd to stay in Phoenix, AZ and he’s not your average rapper. He got some hot shit on this mixtape, it sounds like an album if you as me….but don’t take my word for it…..see for your self!!! The mixtape is called Banana Clip Mixtape 3 – The Street Album.

    I would rather listen to some chalkboard scratches then this hot trash. There is a significant difference between liking a song that knocks when Im tore down in the club and a album worth buying. Some of you cats are talking like this is some real shit…making it more evident that your dont know the definition of good music. Webbie…really? I’m dumbfounded.

  • HU

    You kids on here talking about Webbie and Shawty Lo like this is real music don’t know how lost you are. I really hope some of this next generation can learn to be intelligent and make quality music that will last. Some serious academic studies need to be conducted examining the relationship between education and being a fan of Soulja Boy, Boosie, Webbie, D4L and so forth. We got teen girls shaking their ass on youtube, teen boys wearing ridiculous clothes and dropping out of school at alarming rates and there is absolutely no sense of black history or earning a successful future.

  • SOUTH PHILLY CANNON

    HOW PETE ROCK NOT EVN SELL 4,000 HAHAHAH ONLY HIS NIGGAS COPED DAT

  • fireforreal

    Webbie sucks ass. If your gonna talk about how much him and shawty lo sold there first week you might as well put Janet jackson’s sales since your putting up sales for pop stars because these clowns are not hip hop there crap rap. Pierzy your not a hater if you don’t like garbage,your called smart.

    Go kill urself. only listening to Little Brother and Outkast. You are the softest dude ever. What no 36, UGK, or Ball & G. I pray for you.

  • Dun

    To me it’s about the music, not about sales. Pete’s album leaked last week. If I have bills coming at me left and right and then all of a sudden someone gives you some good music for free, you want me to turn around and still pay for it? If Pete and any other artist were in my position (aka living check-to-check) then they would do the same thing as I’m doing…

    Real talk – don’t let your album leak or else suffer the circumstances. It’s not like PR ever sold big numbers as a soloist anyway.

  • Yo

    Webbie & Shawty Lo CD’s are only good as coasters to set my drink on. Or maybe frisbee with the dog.

  • K.ola

    Nigga if you aint heard the album shut the fuck up…

    i get tired of you Kufi ass niggas…

    you talk tuff on the internet but anytime you see any nigga that play’s shit like pete rock or other kufi shit they scary ass street punks who cant make it on the streets…

    FUCK KUFI MUSIC…

    and how in the hell can you tell me i dont know real music…

    Matter of fact who wants to shoot a fair one in these LA streets…

    That the difference between me and you Kufi ass coward ass niggas

  • Truthfromdaboot

    I am so tired of these east coast especially B-More on up thru philly, Jersey, and them cowards from NYY. Who want to be compared to what you people call real hip-hop. It’s old and dated! Since Eric “Easy-E” Wright stole the show back in the 80′s and then UGK, 8-Ball and MJG, Scarface, No Limit, Cash Money, ATL Movement, Houston Movement, Midwest with Nelly and Shady and now TRILL ENT face it your act are in the biggest market in the us and do 3900 all you cats are local none of you could do a show in TX that would draw 20 fans at $10. You guys have not got anyshine or radio time expect for a few cats who rhymes and or flow has a southern feel to it i.e. Jay, Rule, 50 and yes B.I.G. So to all you haters stop hatin the SOUTH! We not doing Hip-Hop it’s something different we like to call it country Rap TUNES! So you don’t have to like it but please respect it!

  • Hockey

    This is what’s wrong with Hip Hop today, an O.G. like Pete Rock can’t sell and some wack shit like Webbie is debuting high….wow.

  • booo

    different artist SAME shit we hear on the radio fuck can we get some NEW SHIT goin on here people. “she got her own car” “she got her apple bottom jeans” “she a dime” she a… FUCK BE ORIGINAL MOTHER FUCKERS.. i hear rappers saying the same shit as other rappers u niggas are weak! how many times u gonna hear a song called “Get Low” fuckkkkk man WHERE ARE ALL THE REAL TALENTED RAPPERS WE NEED U IN THE GAME!!!!!

    HOLLA IF YOU HEAR ME IM OUTTTT..

  • http://myspace.com/toonasty1 NA$TY BOY

    Im from the south, I listen to ALL good music. From scarface to common I got they CD or some of they music. Im sick and tired of muthafuckaz tum bout whats real hip-hop and what aint. REAL hip-hop has good beats, as well as good lyrics, and WEBBIE got both. If you put work into this music, dont take it for a joke, and you can keep makin GOOD music, then you REAL HIP HOP. I fuck with Pete Rock cause he one of the greatest, but just cause WEBBIE from the south, dont make him WACK. You niigaz need to study up on REAL-HIP HOP cause a lot of you DONT KNOW SHIT. And i aint gon go back and forth with you on here either, cause thats hoe shit.

  • http://www.xxl.com Vincent

    Truthfromdaboot wat are u talking about?! Ny has been running hip hop longer thatn anybody else. We ran it from 1979-1991 and from 1997-2003. And ny is not local. Webbie, ti, lil jon are local and regional artists who barely go gold. U guys have more stupid 1 hit wonders than everybody else. plus there are tons of ny rappers that you have not mentioned that did receive airplay in the past. Wu tang, nas etc.

    wow. numbers are numbers but they’ll never prove whos good (ex. the roots, nas, wu tang). point proven by this douche.

    this dude blows.

    • http://www.myspace.com/akhilthebrownwonda BrownWonda

      yea ur right they dont prove whos best,
      but if less and less ppl buy these artists’s albums, then labels are going to slowly stop pushing those albums, eventually leading to the death of real hip hop

    Seriously, all this region based hating is freakin’ geriatric and played out. The above quote should be true for rap fans, whoever they are, wherever they are, whenever a song comes on.

  • Hate is about to pour all over me for this

    All people who hate on someone getting money and say “im not a hater i just like real music” are fuckin retarded. If your smart enough to know what real music is then you would fuckin know that music has evolved, it just comes with the territory, this is not the 80′s and 90′s mf’s. Its fuckin 2008 and the south is runnin shit these days and they are makin a hell of a lot of money because thats what people wanna hear. If your still typing “________ is the reason hip hop is dead” fuckin quit crying and go lay some flowers by the grave and move to country or some other shit life goes on shitheads. To all southern artists keep getting your money.

  • http://www.xxl.com Vincent
