What I will talk about is Asleep In The Bread Aisle. Asher Roth’s debut came in at #5 and sold over 60,000 albums. That’s not bad, but I think people saying that he had a chance of outselling Ricky Ross may have raised expectations a little high. Still not bad for a debut.
Also debuting this week is Chester French with their debut album Love The Future. I usually don’t mention any artists here if their not Hip-Hop or R&B but they did release the Jacques Jams Vol. 1 mixtape with Clinton Sparks (“Nerd Girl” is my shit!). The album got off to a slow start at #77 and moved around 6,000 units.
Lastly at #186 is West Coast Hip-Hop vets The Grouch & Eligh with the album Say G&E!. I’d be lying if I said I knew anything about this album besides the Living Legends connection.
