The Numbers Game: Freeway & Jake One Debut

For some artists debuting on the charts at #63 is a fail. But for Freeway & Jake One I think it’s a win. First off, and this may seem backwards since I write a column called The Numbers Game, sales aren’t everything. The Stimulus Package sold almost 10,000 copies independently and it was good solid album. Plus the album holds the title of having the best packaging in recent memory. Nuff said.

Sorry we didn’t get to reviewing Mathematics‘ compilation, Return Of The Wu & Friends. Nobody on the crew said anything about reviewing and most of the time that means nobody cares. Okay, that sounded worse than it was meant to be. I actually checked out the album and it wasn’t bad; I’m sure Wu-heads will like it. The album debuted at #163 (Or #192 depending on who you ask).

No other thoughts this week. Screw you guys, I’m going home.
