Last week, Jay-Z and Kanye West set an Itunes record when they sold 290,000 in digital downloads. This week, combined with physical sales, Watch the Throne is the number one album on the Billboard 200 with 426.661 total albums sold.
Another notable debut on the charts is Ace Hood’s Blood, Sweat and Tears. The Miami rapper’s album debuts at the #10 spot with a little over 25K sold. Adele and Beyonce both remain in the top 10; Adele sold an additional 73,000 copies of the record shattering 21 and Beyonce’s 4 sits comfortably in the #8 spot with 27K sold.
Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame’s Ferrari Boyz debuts just outside the top 20 at the #24 spot with about 15K copies sold.
Whose album did you buy?
Southern hip-hop artists Waka Flocka Flame and Gucci Mane sat down with GQ for a few word games. Their answers are hilarious to say the least. I’m guessing this interview was done in support of their joint album, Ferrari Boyz, which was just released. Interview highlights below (Read the entire interview here):
The Little Mermaid
The Meaning of Life
“Who Kevin Bacon?”
The Meaning of Life
Sex in Crazy Places
Cute Little Teddy Bears
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
“Would You Rather?”
GQ: Would you rather have no sex for the rest of your life or sing Britney Spear’s “Oops!…I Did It Again” every time you orgasmed?
Waka: I’d rather not have sex. I can’t sing no Britney Spears. Every time?
GQ: Yup, every time. Like, you’d automatically start singing it.
Waka: I’d rather not do it.
GQ: What’s wrong with Britney?
Waka: Nothing wrong with her—she a sexy ass woman! I just can’t hear myself singing that.
GQ: Would you rather be frozen in the urine of Ryan Seacrest for 1,000 years or boiled alive and eaten by Miley Cyrus?
Gucci: Neither one. I guess I’d have to go with boiled alive. The other one sounds disgusting.
GQ: If you were elected the president of the universe, then the first thing you would do is…
Waka: Kill taxes. Taxes fuckin’ suck, man! Every time you make money, they take it all. You know what? I’d make marijuana legal, then I’d kill taxes.
GQ: If you were elected president, then the first thing you would do is…
Gucci: The first thing I would do is…let me see. I would raise the speed limit. Just so people could drive and have fun, at least to a hundred miles an hour.
