Q-Tip Debuts High, Lil Wayne And Young Jeezy Climb Charts Again

Finally back from his eight-year hiatus, Q-Tip gives hip-hop a much needed boost on the charts this week.

The Abstract Poetic lands at No. 14 with The Renaissance -selling 34, 219 CDs according to Nielsen’s Soundscan.

Meanwhile, T.I. hasn’t budged from the No. 10 position. This week, The Paper Trail moves another 68, 782 units to bring the album’s tally to 1, 116, 409 copies sold.

Further down, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III is amazingly on the upswing. This week, the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” climbs one spot to No.22 by selling 23, 960 CDs. Weezy’s latest release has sold 2, 648,682 LPs to date.

Young Jeezy has also seen his numbers rise over the past week. Selling 19, 598 sets, The Recession jumps five spot to No. 26 -moving 598, 571 CDs. -Bruce Moses

    Look @ this Fucchead picture w/ the Konta Kenta nappy ass hair. And who the fucc roccs a nappy ass flat top anyway! I stepped to him on the “Vibrant Thang” video set 6 years ago he was so damn scared he ran under the trailor and hid for 25 mins! Hype Williams had to beg me to leave just so this dude could finish the fuccin shoot. I was actually on a 1 sec clip playing volly ball w/ 2 hoes and I spiked it so damn hard because she said ball I don’t like the letter “B” I later had a 3 year affair w/ Laruen Hill she really made that song “differences” for me because I couldn’t leave my Crips alone! Q-Tip is under the strictist extortion plan right now of 11.00 per month for that wackass flat top

    G-Unot Killa is the best and funniest writer on XXL right now. Give dude a blog ASAP.

  • Q! tha Great!

    Q-tip’s album is great. Its a change of pace. It helps you understand the essence of actually listening to a real album of music and lyrics. not a bunch of catchy melodies, hooks and dummed down, kindergarten rhymes about petty bullsh!t and over glorified lifestyles.

    get The Renaissance and hear real hip-hop!

  • chillin mayne

  • Nate

    Here is the bitch’es formula:

    He “steps to” insert name of talented or popular performer above:

    Another person of mention “begs him” for their life or health

    He throws in some B’s and C’s, mentions sets so that others think he’s connected.

    And he tells us how he “extorts” the world for pocketcash.

    Not as funny as how he’s getting “extorted” for a electric bill, phonebill, and internet access.

    Better go get em “Paying for internet I’m not killa” !!! Go get em!!

    • Eric

      damn homie, just let him have his fun. it’s only entertainment!

      anyway… jeezy the truth. my fav album of the year by far. he deserves the plaque.
