The Numbers Game | Hip Hops Reigns Supreme

I know, we do Soul music, why is Kanye and Nicki all up on the front page? Easy, we celebrate success and music in general. I love Kanye West‘s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and thought that it would go platinum or close in the first week. Gold is the new platinum so I was right by default. To me, the album is a classic and you can check out the nappyafro review here.  The other big album release this week belongs Nicki Minaj with her debut Pink Friday. While there seems to be no let up in hate and flat out disdain for what she’s doing, these numbers mean that someone else may take a chance on your favorite unsigned female emcee in the near future. [Check out Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday review here] Ne-Yo‘s Libra Scale lands in the top 10 and the review is coming soon for this, promise. Here are the rest of the numbers.
