BEP Knocks Lil Wayne Out of the Top Spot

The Black Eyed Peas have put an “E-N-D.” to Lil Wayne’s position as the number one rap act on The Billboard 200.

Climbing five seats from last week, the Peas managed to grab the No. 3 spot on the charts, with 65,500 units of their E.N.D. album flying off the shelves this sales cycle. After an impressive 37-weeks, the group’s Grammy-nominated disc has close to 2,131,300 copies sold, according to the Nielsen SoundScan.

Wayne’s experimental rock album, Rebirth, fell one spot to No. 5 this go-round. The soon to be incarcerated rapper racked up 58,400 in sales, in his third week on the charts, making his total 323,800.

All the way down at No. 21 is Weezy’s collective Young Money. Fans picked up 19,700 copies of the crew’s debut LP, We Are Young Money, making YM’s overall stats stand at 330,700.

Jumping ten spots to No. 32 is the other Mr. Carter, Jay-Z. Hov’s Blueprint 3 album was scanned 16,000 times this week, bringing his 24-week tally to 1,631,500.

Making his way back into the top 40 this week is Gucci Mane at No. 38. The Atlanta trap star sold 14,700 copies of The State Vs. Radric Davis over the last seven-days. Overall, the So Icey rapper has 278,800 in sales after 11-weeks on the charts.

Further down the charts Freeway and producer Jake One’s collaborative album The Stimulus Package, debuted at No. 63. The disc, released through Rhymesaysers Records, sold 9,000 units in its first week. —Elan Mancini

    @ “Gift” ..

    Ain’t u tha same nigga that was sayin 50 cent floppd nigga????? real talk u fuckin dick rider, lil wayne cd moving slow as fuck too homie. get his dick outa ya ass for real. And that Freeway cd is hot as Halle berry 10 yrs ago. real talk that shit was definitly in a Philly Freezer cuz its cold as ice nigga. Anyway yo gift an anybody else, that lil wayne an young money shit a flop according to ya own standards. But to think of it both them joints right on par wit tha majority of Lil Waynes records throught his entire career, look it up . Lil wayne only had a couple successful cds an tha rest was shit. HIs first two was his best, but you 14 yr olds dont know cuz u wasn’t old enough, didn’t have permission from mommy an daddy huh? u fuckin dick riddin ass nigga gt da fuck outa here wit dat shit. a flop a flop aint it? Hate on my opinion cuz i dont fuckin care. peace
