T.I. Vs. T.I.P. has held onto the No.1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums for the second week in a row. Despite its 60% drop in sales, T.I.’s fifth solo album moved a solid 175,000 units in its second week on the chart. That was more than enough to hold off competition from rockers Smashing Pumpkins’ Zeitgeist LP, which shifted 145,000 copies.
T.I. vs. T.I.P. debuted with an impressive 468,000 scans last week to become Tip’s second consecutive album to go gold in its first two weeks. Last year’s King charted at No.1 with 522,000 scans and eventually became the highest selling rap album of the year.
