The Numbers Game: Snoop Dogg

Snoop

Last week I emailed The nappyafro Staff and posed a question: Should we review Snoop Dogg‘s new album Bush? I asked that because when I ran through the album, it didn’t necessarily feel like a Hip-Hop album. Either way, the response from the crew was mixed to really not giving a fuck so if you don’t see the review for Snoop’s new album that the reason why. But Snoop is a legend so congrats to him form grabbing the #14 spot on the charts this wee for his 13th album. Oh, and for also naming an album Bush.

Sidenote: This week I stopped being a jackass and started breaking down the actual sales a little better. The first sales number is the full figures for weekly sales including streaming (1,500 = 1 album) and the one in parenthesis are the physical sales. So there.
