T.I. And Weezy Eye Multiplatinum, Hip-Hop Releases Quickly Fade Off Charts

Hip-Hop’s platinum reign is glaringly distant this week as only four rap releases charted onto Billboard’s Top 100.

Only three weeks in stores and T.I. is inches from nabbing his fifth platinum plaque with his latest release, The Paper Trail. Landing at no.3, Tip moves an additional 93, 427 units, bringing Trail‘s total to 971, 067 copies sold according to Nielsen’s Soundscan.

Meanwhile, Lil Wayne is slowly, but surely making his way towards triple platinum status. This week, Tha Carter III rests at no. 13- selling 25, 384 sets. To date, the LP has scanned 2, 601, 685 copies.

Further down, The Recession is somehow being kind to Young Jeezy. Claiming the no. 18 slot, Jeezy’s third effort sells 20, 962 units. The album has sold 561, 561 copies to date.

One of Hip-Hop’s few Gold artists nowadays, The Game lands at no.28 with 16, 451 units sold last week. LAX‘s grand total now tallies at 531, 853 copies sold.- Bruce Moses
