T.I. Nabs Another Platinum Plaque, Clings To Top 10

Add another plaque to T.I.’s stat box. The self-proclaimed “king of the south” just cleared the million mark by selling 76, 560 copies of The Paper Trail this week. Resting at the no. 10 slot, Tip has sold 1, 047, 627 copies according to Nielsen’s Soundscan.

Meanwhile, Lil Wayne seems to have found Michael Jordan’s number. Landing at no. 23, Tha Carter III moves 23, 037 units this week -bringing its grand total to 2, 624, 722 units sold.

The Recession continues to be kind to Jeezy. This week, Jeezy scans 17, 412 copies to claim the no. 31 position. The CD has sold 578, 973 CDs to date.

The Game could soon benefit from a boost courtesy of his upcoming Kevin Connolly-directed clip featuring Ne-Yo. In the meantime, LAX is doing just fine at no. 38. Chuck Taylor’s third solo effort pushes 14, 121 copies this week -totaling at 545, 974 CDs sold.

The four aforementioned artists remain the only hip-hop representatives on Billboard’s Hot 100. Look for Q-Tip’s The Renaissance to join the rotation on next week’s Charts. -Marvin Brandon

    • G-UNOT KILLA

      Nigga I remember 1 time I was lifting weights w/ 50 Cent and he told me that Ja Rule was around the corner. I smacked the shit outta 50 for not telling me sooner! I then went aroung the corner “C” walked up to Ja Rule and said “Break yo self nigga!” He then immediatly started to beg for his life because I had a fork in my hand! I then called Al Sharpton and asked about Ja’s BET interview he did with him and he told me to give Ja a Pass. I then smacked him up for 20 minutes! After that Ja was sweating bullets and was openly crying! I then kicked him down the steps and collected my $12.00 extorion check! ECG-UNIT Crip 4 Life Spider Loc 4 Life!

  • JAY STONE

    Damn,looks like The Game is going platinum.
    That song with neyo sucks!
    He should release money as the next single.
    Anyway T.I and lil wayne album are garbage.
    Too bad Nas is not ever gold yet.

    • EReal

    • drox

      @ JAY STONE
      hahahhha… Platinum??? when? pro when jesus comes! I seriously thgt this album was much better than the second one but I guess I’m wrong cause these numbers he had are pretty retarded!

  • bkln boy

    It’s going to be a slow crawl for Weezy to make it to 3 mil, that’s if he can even make it there. He better hope that his new Mrs. Officer single gets people to buy his album at a higher rate, because with every week his sales drop and he might get stuck at around 2.7 mil.

  • KEITH

    I WONDER WHY REAL SHIT LIKE NAS DON’T SELL! BUT GOOD LOOK FOR T.I.

  • HollyHood

    Aint nobody checkin 4 Nas n e more, he’s respected 4 his past work but he’s irrelevant. Lupe is the new nas!

    • TonyStackz

      BUT DUDE DON’T EVEN HAVE TO RAP ANYMORE AND HE’LL STILL BE AHEAD OF YOUR FAVORITE RAPPER
      & ANY OF THESE NEW BOOTY NIGGAZ!!!

  • chillin mayne

    jajajaja, another classic post from dis cat g-unot killa…i laffed hard at dat part “i smacked him up for 20 minutes”…hillarious!

  • Chris Mac

    My favourite part is when he says he collects these 12.00 checks for extortion. You gotta be the worst SDN out there, or the worst banger ever. who collects 12.00 bucks, I know it aint real but this dude dont even try to be. If you a killa you woulda neva bin across state lines to new york. step off its blood in blood out nigga

  • UARK

    Hahahaha…Hats off to another great post by G-UNOT Killa

  • steve

    hell yea.why aint you guys put up obama winnin.yall fallin off hard.

  • http://myspace.com/coldblooded_ Michelle S.

    That just proves my theory. All the rappers who do not go platinum- either people don’t know who the fuck they are, they don’t have a good enough gimmick (I mean, T.I. IS going to jail. I have yet to listen to the album. After buying T.I. VS. T.I.P, I’m scared.), or…you just…suck. HA!

    Can’t blame “lack of promotion” or fans only liking “down south shit” or “simple shit” or your label screwing you over.

    Did Soulja Boy go platinum? If he did…Jesus. LOL

  • balaramesh

    props to t.i. i havent liked any of his past few cd’s but i am happy for him.

    in regards to nas, that is not a marketable album to mainstream. it’s not the simple and easily digestible stuff that sells now. anyhow, his legacy is cemented. if game would not have begged for him to take the song out now he would not even have a single out now.

  • fastflipper
