The Numbers Game: Bun B Keeps It Trill At #2


The SoundScan numbers are out and it looks like the fans actually backed someone whose worthy. Bun B’s II Trill lands at #2 on the Billboard 200. After all he’s been through, you can’t help but feel good for Underground King. Also this week, The Cool Kids make a small splash with their digital EP The Bake Sale while the Kidz In The Hall still can’t catch a break and are still not in the Top 200. Oh yeah, for all those e-mails and comments from those who had a problem with King Jerm’s review of the Killah Priest album, you all should of went and also bought Behind The Stained Glass, because it sold a dismal 840 copies last week. Look out for Usher’s new album Here I Stand to make noise a lot of next week. Without further ado let’s take a look at the Top 50…
