The Numbers Game: Dilla Debuts & Eminem Closes In On A Million

thenumbersgame

This week, other than people falling out of the Top 50, it really wasn’t any movement. The late great J Dilla’s posthumous album, Jay Stay Paid, manage to make the Top 100. By the way, we didn’t actually “review” the album, but SBK (aka SpeakerHead) wrote a insightful piece about it. Check it out here.

By this time next week, Eminem’s Relapse will most likely pass 1 million in sales. In this day and time, that’s incredible. Em still shows he definitely has drawing power. I wonder how Relapse 2 will do. I’m outta here quick. Till next week…
