Gotta kick this post off by giving major props to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Moving nearly 80,000 units is not easy for any artist in todays day and age, let alone an independent one. The Heist is still the number one Hip-Hop album in the country beating MGK’s highly anticipated debut Lace Up, which moved just over 50,000 units. The west coast also made a little noise this week with Mellowhype (Hodgy Beats & Left Brain) selling 8177 copies of their new album Numbers as well as the OG west coast vet X to the Z who moved 3189 copies of Napalm, his first album since 2006’s Full Circle.
