E-40 Hits Billboard 200 Four Times With Block Brochure Trilogy

With no major label hip-hop projects hitting shelves this week, Drake and Tyga reclaimed their positions as the No. 1 and 2 selling hip-hop albums of the Billboard 200.

Falling from No. 18 to No. 24, however, next week will almost certainly mark the end of Take Care’s reign as the number one hip hop album, with Drake’s labelmate Nicki Minaj preparing to debut on the charts next week with her own sophomore LP Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Tyga moved another 12,500 units of Careless World, landing at No. 33 overall.

After debuting at No. 5 last week, Odd Future’s The Odd Future Tape Vol. 2, fell drastically to No. 36. Diggy Simmons’ Unexpected Arrival also slowed down, landing right behind Odd Future.

But the most impressive chart action this week came from E-40, who dropped three albums last week, all of which made the Top 200. His Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil trifecta made the top 50, selling 9,500 units, and landing at No. 44 as a package deal. Between this and the sales of Vol. 1, 2, and 3 individually, 40 Water sold over 32,000 albums in The Block Brochure’s first week.

Next week’s Billboard 200 looks to be an exciting one with the arrival of Nicki’s highly anticipated Roman Reloaded. The XXL staff gave predictions here. How many copies do you think Roman Reloaded will sell? —XXL Staff
