T-Pain Reaches Top 5, T.I. And Weezy Show Consistency

He may not be classic hip-hop by definition, but T-Pain gives urban music a much needed boost this week.

The leak apparently didn’t hurt Pain much. Thr33 Ringz, the self-proclaimed “hard & B” artist’s third solo album, debuts at No.4 -selling 167, 743 according to Nielsen’s Soundscan.

Further down the charts, T.I. keeps carrying the hip-hop torch with impressive numbers. Seven weeks into stores, Tip’s Paper Trail has sold 1,178,455 copies , including 62,046 this week.

Lil Wayne has also been showing consistency week in and week out. Nearly six months onto the charts, Tha Carter III rests at No. 29 with 23, 134 units sold. The CD has sold 2, 671, 816 CDs to date.

Young Jeezy’s The Recession has also been posting solid numbers. This week, Snowman’s junior release moves 16, 210 units – bringing its total to 614, 781 copies sold. –Marvin Brandon
