The Numbers Game: Murs & Gucci

Am I the only one who is surprised that Gucci Mane‘s Burrrprint (2) HD almost sold 20,000 copies? Then factor in that it’s a “retail mixtape” and it sold over 14,000 copies more than the Murs & 9th Wonder album Fornever. Burrrprint (2) HD debuts at #19… and you can download it here.

Speaking of Murs & 9th Wonder, Fornever lands at #84. This shouldn’t be a shock to most since Murs/9th related projects don’t usually do that well on the charts (Murs’ highest on the charts was #45 with Murs For President & 9th Wonder’s highest was #56 with Little Brother on The Minstrel Show). 5,500 units may seem like a low number, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad album (It’s also an indie album). Want proof? Check out Arkitekt’s review of Fornever here.

Other thoughts:
*I still haven’t listened to Jaheim’s album Another Round, but he’s doing a LOT better than most people thought. Hell, he’s doing a lot better THAN most people.
*How will acts like Cypress Hill, Devin The Dude, & Little Brother fair next week?
