The Numbers Game: Royce Da 5’9″ Debuts


Dang homie. I’m really late with this Numbers Game huh? Yea, life sucks. But I’m still here for you and to constantly push my nappyafro Team to a championship (I’m into sport metaphors right now. NBA just started back up, World Series, my greatness in Madden, etc). Enough high stepping to the endzone (See), let’s get at these numbers…

Well, not really. I honestly wanna just talk about one album and that’s Royce Da 5’9″‘s Street Hop since it’s the lone Hip-Hop artist debuting in the Top 200 this week. Yea, it only moved 4,600 copies and landed at #111. But if it ever was a time where sales figures don’t match quality, it’s here (Maybe if that Shady Records rumors come true he could get the sales too). The album is great. And DJ Premier is executive producing. What? Are we gonna review it? Hell yeah! Kareem Abdul Jamar, you up partner. Knock it out son.

The rest of the album debuts this week? Not today…

Done. Typo King (I had to bring it back)
