Nas Knocks Lil Wayne Off Top, Lands Atop Billboard Charts

Titled or not, Nas’ 9th LP, Untitled lands atop the Billboard charts this week. The set sold 187, 078 copies according to Nielsen’s Soundscan, moving enough units to push Lil Wayne off the No. 1 spot.

But don’t expect Escobar to rest on his laurels. The Queens lyricist is keeping busy with a protest against Fox News in NYC today and an appearance on Comedy Central’s hit show, The Colbert Report, later today.

Meanwhile, Weezy is a step closer to double platinum status. Per Nielsen, Tha Carter III scanned 105, 590 CDs this week- bringing its grant total to 1, 912, 052 after six weeks on the charts. David Banner’s Greatest Story Ever Told barely missed the Top 10, nabbing the No.11 spot with 51, 902. —Anthony Thomas
