Update: Busta Rhymes’ Standing On The Charts Changes, SoundScan Recalculates Sales Figures

Yesterday’s (May 27) Nielsen SoundScan report has been corrected. While it originally had Redman and Method Man’s reunion album Blackout 2 ranked higher than Busta Rhymes’ Back On My B.S., the updated figures put the Dungeon Dragon over the dynamic duo.

Busta’s numbers are the same as yesterday’s, with 59,100 fans picking up the New York vets’ 8th solo album, but his standing on the Billboard 200 has changed, with him moving up one spot to no 5.

Red and Meth sold close to 6,000 units less than the 63,800 tally that was mistakenly reported early Wednesday morning. With the new stats the Def Jam rappers fall three spots to no. 7 on the charts.

All of the other stats remain the same on the charts with Eminem’s Relapse sitting at the top. – Elan Mancini

He said finally somebody from New York know how 2 make music for everbody.

    • $ykotic

    thats what happens when you listen to Hip Hop while trying to make a Hip Hop album. you pick up on other artist without knowing. But why his people aint tell him. hmmm

    What happened to when hip-hop fans supported skilled artist like Busta and Red and Meth, now days people rather go to Bearshare or Limewire and download their albums, but they pick up shitty artist’s albums like Souljaboy, you can download shitty music if you want but SUPPORT REAL HIP-HOP!!!

    Its not the labels…its fans that are the problem. If you follow hip hop nowadays…with the internet and all…you know these albums were coming out.

    Everybody just dl them joints for free. I copped at Best Buy.

    Anyhoo…BO2 is Fiayh

  • ted

    ASHER ROTH sold more in his 1st week than meth, red & bus…wow!!!!!!!!!

  • Fireforreal

    @Thomas I agree But You have to admit,if more artist’s gave you more than 2-3 good tracks on a 18 track cd you would be more down to cop. Look at the late 90′s early 2000′ where you had some firrrrrrrre albums that sold well.Than these companies start letting artist’s release wack albums as long as they have one hot single. Then the fans get fed up with spending there money to finace a rappers lifestyle who can’t even keep you entertained.

    “Look at the late 90’s early 2000′ where you had some firrrrrrrre albums that sold well.Than these companies start letting artist’s release wack albums as long as they have one hot single.”

    Absolute cosign.

  • Thomas

    @Fireforreal

    I agree. An artist should have more than 2-3 good tracks on an album. But, even when an album is full of bangers people still don’t cop. Take for instance….Elzhi and Black Milk dropped great albums last year and they sold about 10,000 copies together.

    Meth/Red dropped a good album and only 59,000 people bought the album? That doesn’t make any sense.

    And I understand that times are hard for people, but if you dl and like the album if you can you have to support. And lord knows I’ve dl my share of music, but I have spent big bucks on CD’s within the last year (even buying stuff I dl).

    Also, when you get a major label album nowadays its 4-6 filler/radio ready songs compared to 2-3 during the time frame you mentioned.

    It’s a complex topic/situation indeed. However, when are favorite artist drop albums we have to support. Either support them by buying the CD or going to shows.

  • Fireforreal

    I totally agree. I might run into you at bestbuy or somewhere because I thought I was the only one still buying cd’s. I think artist’s who aren’t selling large numbers any more should go indie and make more bread because I think there REAL fans will support regardless if you have 2-4 videos tons of adds,radio singles etc…… than these rappers can be more comfortable because there not expected to sell 1-2 million and if they do 50-100,000 it’s alright.
