The Numbers Game: Prozak, Death Grips, & Mickey Avalon

This is gonna be a quick Numbers Game seeing as I don’t really know much about the debuts this week (I’m also lazy):

  • Michigan rapper Prozak, who’s signed the Tech N9ne’s Strange Music, drops his 3rd album entitled Paranormal. Never heard any of his music but 4,500 isn’t bad for an indie.
  • I’ve heard some good things about the band Death Grips but I have yet to get a chance to listen to much of their music (I guess you could label them experimental Hip-Hop). Their debut album Money Store sold 3,200 units last weeks.
  • I’m sure I’ve heard the name Mickey Avalon before and if I can remember correctly he’s like a rapping Pauly Shore (Didn’t he release an album with MySpace or something?). His sophomore album LOADED sold 3,100 copies last week.

I am currently listening to Jack White‘s new album Blunderbuss. I mention this because it’s the #1 album in the country.

We’ll see the numbers for B.o.B‘s Strange Clouds next week. I haven’t read anything yet but I’m thinking it’s got an okay chance of grabbing the #1 spot.

#8 Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (Last Week: #6) – 32,400; Total: 415,400 [4 Weeks]

#37 Rihanna – Talk That Talk (Last Week: #30) – 10,600 Total: 843,800 (Gold) [23 Weeks]
