Snoop Dogg Brings More Malice to the Charts

The Billboard 200 got two new additions this week with releases by Snoop Dogg and indie rapper Brotha Lynch Hung joining the ranks.

Neither managed to topple Ludacris, though. In its third week on the charts, Battle of the Sexes, landed at the No. 7 spot, after selling 44,900 units. Overall Luda has 243,300 in sales, according to the Nielsen SoundScan report.

Three slots down is The E.N.D. by the Black Eyed Peas. Fans of the group picked up an additional 34,500 CDs this go-round, making their 42-week tally 2,343,900.

Coming in at No. 21 this week is Lil Wayne’s Rebirth. The rock and roll influenced LP was bagged up 20,900 times this sales cycle, putting its total stats in the 465,500 range.

Snoop debuted at No. 29 with his bonus disc, More Malice. The album follows Malice N Wonderland, which just dropped three months ago. More was scanned 15,400 times in its first week.

At No. 33 is Young Money. Drake, Nicki Minaj and company cashed in 13,500 in sales this week, bringing their 14-week numbers to 404,800.

Tech N9ne’s labelmate Brotha Lynch Hung burst onto the charts at No. 69 this week. The West Coast rap vet’s new disc Dinner and a Movie scored 7,900 in sales in its first go-round.

Failing to break into the top 200 was new releases by Inspectah Deck and Marco Polo and Ruste Juxx. Both Deck’s Manifesto and Polo and Juxx’s The eXXecution picked up 1,100 in sales in week one.

Look for E-40, Murs, Ghostface, Method Man and Raekwon (Wu Massacre) to all hit the charts next Wednesday (April 7). —Elan Mancini
