The Numbers Game: T.I. Debuts At #2 & Chief Keef Debuts At #29

Trouble Man

Because of the holidays, sales figures came in a day late. But here we are:

I remember hearing that T.I. was a little worried concerned about the sales of Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head. Should he be? It depends. He grabbed the #2 spot and sold 179,000 with his 8th studio album. He also sold more than 2010’s No Mercy. But then again, if Tip is looked as being in the upper echelons of rap royalty, this number also could be looked at as low. Check out our review of T.I.’s Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head here.

Chief Keef‘s album Finally Rich debuting at #29 and selling 59,000 units sold is about what I guessed a month or so ago. What does this mean? I have no idea but Keef’s tour recently got canceled. No love for Sosa? Our review for Finally Rich coming soon. Hopefully.
