The Numbers Game: Joe, Everlast, & DJ Drama

I know for a fact that I need to take a vacation. Why? Because I’m slippin’. On last week’s Numbers Game I didn’t even acknowledge that DJ Drama‘s album Third Power came out. But then again, after checking Google, it seems like everybody else forgot too. Either way, I guessing Third Power sold around 10,000 in it’s first week (But then again, I did go to public school). Sidenote: If anyone is looking for that Third Power album review, ask King Jerm.

Joe dropped his 9th album The Good, The Bad, The Sexy last week and lands at the #8 spot. Yea, Joe has the #8 album in the country. I always said that I needed to start a consulting firm that tells artists when to drop an album so they could get a high debut, but it seems like Joe may already have that guy on payroll.

Everlast‘s new album Ungrateful Living cracked the Top 50 and grabs the #48 position. I know nothing about this album and my knowledge of Everlast kinda stopped after his beef with Eminem ended. So we’ll just go to the numbers…
