UGK & Flo Rida Fly Into The Top 10, Bow Wow Not Invited

New releases by Southern acts UGK and Flo Rida debuted in the Top 10 on this week’s Billboard 200, with Bow Wow’s latest album falling short of the coveted spot.

The final album by the Underground Kingz, UGK 4 Life, lead the rap pack this go-round grabbing the no. 6 spot in their first week on the charts. The Port Arthur, TX duo officially pushed 76,420 units out of the stores – according to Nielsen’s SoundScan – very close last week’s HitsDailyDouble.com projections.

Surpassing expectations is DJ Khaled associate Flo Rida. The muscle-bound, club friendly rapper landed at no. 8 with his sophomore album R.O.O.T.S. Fans copped 55,290 copies of the disc this week.

Bow Wow pawed his way to no. 16 with New Jack City Part II. The album, which finds the young MC entering his early 20s, sold 30,850.

Love VS. Money, R&B crooner The-Dream’s second solo disc, fell four spots this week to no. 18. After a month on the charts the CD sold 271,490, with 28,550 copies sold this week.

Five spots down is Atlanta rap giant T.I. Paper Trail continues to make numbers 27 weeks later, moving 21,760 discs this week. Tip’s overall sales numbers now sit at 1,858,060.

In it’s second week on the charts, Slim Thug’s Boss Of All Bosses fell to no. 32. Racking up an additional 16,890 units this week, the Houston MC has a total of 49,610 albums sold.

Sliding all the way to no. 40 from no. 9 is Dipset Capo Jim Jones. The Harlem rapper scanned an additional 13,700 copies of Pray IV Reign this week, bringing his two-week total to 56,690.

Next week look for Jadakiss and Mims to hit up the charts. – Elan Mancini

    Good to see UGK outselling garbage. I would have thought the coked out rich kids would have supported their man Flo Rida more than that. Fuck the bum Jim Jones. Perhaps now he’ll crawl back into his cardboard box. And fuck anyone who posts below me with a tattoo on their neck or hands. Can you scream your a worthless piece of shit any louder than that?

    • mo

      your mom is a worthless piece of shit and I don’t even have any tats you judgemental dickhead.

    • joe p

      jim jones blows dick … him and flo rida can sell that many albums ??? sorry to say ppl hip hop just got decapitated lol this is so sad … really is

  • The_Truth

    ***’New Jack City pt. II?’. . .is he fuckin serious??

    Anyway, kinda disappointed in that Jadakiss album. . .they went ‘Bad Boy’ and drowned the entire album with features. . .I can’t explain the logic for that if I had too.

    Props to UGK. . .”The Purse comes first” goes off!

    Who the hell else is buying that Jim Jones album??? WTF? That dirt clump needs to fade away….he reminds me of that dude that always have dirt and dust following him on the Charlie Brown cartoons LOL

    Co sign with HU, glad to see they are selling more than the wack ass rappers out right now. I was gonna get it from Amoeba last Friday (the UGK album), but ended up getting that new DOOM and J Dilla Compilation instead, but I still plan to purchase it. From what I heard it goes HARD

    • http://www.yahoo.com Streets Is Watchin

      I just bought 10 copies….ran out of good coasters for the kitchen & coffee tables…only ran $3.50.

  • DUDE

    THE MUSIC BUSINESS IS GOING WAY DOWN…..ALBUM SALES ARE AT A RECORD LOW…..2 FIX IT I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD GO INDIE…..BUT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.

  • Ayre

    @ HU that neck and Tattoo line made my day! I can go to work now and laugh at 80% of the people that buys the garbage.

    Bow Wow dropped an album? He needs to start dating ciara again so people wont forget about him.

  • Nate

    Outside of the one-hit wonderI told you that Jenny Jones was trash, no matter how many tats, pink outfits, and videos that Dipset puts in your face. The hype is over.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled dose of true hip-hop: this week it’s brought to you by a classic Southern Group called UGK

  • DV8

    What happened to BowWow’s fanbase? They usually support him. Times are a changing.

  • http://xxlmag.com $hawty Reg

    Bow Wow didn’t have Jason Phillips aka Jadakiss write for him this go round! TRUE STORY……

    Speakin of which, I wonder what numbers Jadakiss will do next week……”WHAT IF HURRICANE KATRINA HIT MANHATTEN, WHAT IF PAC WOULD HAVE MISSED THAT FIGHT, AND WHAT IF B.I.G. WOULD HAVE MISSED THAT PARTY”

    Props to UGK, I’m very happy to see they made the top 10

    New Orleans is in the buildin…where ya at

    • Zulu1925

      Had to get that UGK to complete the collection. Good to see they got some support! The new album is syrupy (as in pancakes) good – my favorite UGK album is still Supertight, though! What up, $hawty Reg?! I’m reppin’ dat 8th Ward!!! Born & raised in the N.O. Been living in PHX the last 7 years, though…

  • http://www.xxlmag.com 14snipez

    Dammmmn Bow Wow was talkin all dis big shit wen him n soulja boi got n2 it n he actually got outsold by him wtf that’s weird i actually thought he was gunna do big numbers wit his kiddie fanbase. But I’m hella surprized UGK did da numbers dey did I’m proud of dat being from TX n dey album was FIRE (cept for the akon joint dat had no business being on da album at all)

  • Mutada al sader the king

    I got my UGK just to help out Pimps C’s wife and kids. I been rocking the bootleg, in the Ipod since 2 weeks ago. I only opened the cd to see the credits.

    yOU MOFO’s elevated Jadakiss to top 5 status and this idiot cant even deliver a cohesive album. The new JADA SUCKS and I been on these boards screaming that shit since last year. He needs to put up or shut up. The lyrics and songs on this album were not up to snuff with his past work. Either he got lazy, smokes to much weed, or somone told him to dumb it down for the stanky legs and his stupid ass listened…

    • http://www.myspace.com/emcdlthemusicprofile EmCDL

      NOOOOOOOOOO! I was looking forward to listening to that too! So you mean to tell me that the new Lox album may suffer the same fate??? Damn man…Jada must have got hit with one of Jim Jones’ dirt clumps…

    Co-sign Mutada

    I been saying for @ least two years that Jada ain’t the same cat he was awhile back. He got lazy; too many niggas gassed him on the whole K.I.N.Y. shit. That window closed some time ago. When Styles & Louch started getting more shine (the Ghost BEEN outrhyming him), it was a wrap.

    He even went back to Puff to promote the album. Fuck if I let a snake bite me twice!

    Too bad, he used to be hard (no homo).

    • http://tonygrands.blogspot.com Tony Grand$

      *fucking keyboard!!…..

      K.O.N.Y.

      Btw, where the fuck do these “labels” advertise nowadays? Do they even promote albums on the street? It must be ‘Nets only. If it weren’t for my on-line adventures, I would never know new shit is dropping. That could be another reason for these lackluster sales. Dudes ain’t buying mags, there’s no video shows anymore, WTF do they expect?

  • mizeryluvkompany

    shiiiit, i cant believe bow wow did even 30,000
    who the fuck is buying that garbage? he fuckin sux, real talk, dudes wack as hell, he dont rap bout shit, and he cant rap period, oh yea and he sux at madden, dude thx he’s so fresh…lol..fuck bow wow.

  • Rae Tha Great

    WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED TO HIP-HOP. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE NUMBERS? PEACE

  • Tre

    Co sign Tony Grand….

    If it wasn’t for me going online and fucking with these websites, I would have had no idea Method Man and Redman are putting out Blackout 2 April 28th. Shit like that is indeed ridiulous. Then again Def Jam don’t promote shit anymore. Betcha Dr. Dre gon’ make sure Eminem’s album get to that money. Lol. LMAO at BOW WOW’s sales. He said naming his Album New Jack City 2 was JD’s idea. When’s the last time he had a good idea?

  • East Saint Louis

    BOW WOW FANBASE GREW UP AND REALIZED THAT HE SUCKS..AND WEN HE DECIDED 2 B GANGSTA ALL OF A SUDDEN HE FUCK HISSELF.LOL THAT JADA COOL BUT HE JUS GOT 2 MANY FEATURES ON IT I THINK IF HE WOULDA HAD MORE PROMOTION AND LESS FEATURES IT WOULDA BEEN BETTA…YEP 1111!!!!!!!!!!

  • scott

    why wasn’t jadakisses album mentioned at all it was a good cd to what the fuck is going on.

  • fireforreal

    Jada came out aweek after those releases so it will be on here this following week. I’m glad Ugk did there thing. There loyal fans will cop no matter what. Bow wow was the biggest suprise. I ‘m not a fan of his but I thought he had a huge fan base for ages 13-20 . That is sad,I bet he’s gonna top out at maybe 200,000. People say times are changing but so are people’s taste in music. He hasn’t grown as an emcee he still has the same flow,beats, and lyrics as if he was 13 all over again. Nobody says he should go gangsta but he has to step it up because these kids he followed years ago are grown no and that kid shit belongs to gay ass soulja bitch.
