MCA Nashville Vet Unseats Michael, Cobra Starship Rises

August 12, 2009

Twang goes bang.

Yep, that’s the sound of honky-tonk veteran George Strait’s latest MCA Nashville hitting the #1 spot on next week’s HITS Album chart, the latest success in a long and still-potent career.

Based on one-day sales figure from all those music retailers who haven’t become medical marijuana dispensaries shows the country star will sell a total close to 150k.

That’ll be more than enough to topple the King of Pop’s reign at #1, though expect Michael releases to dominate the rest of our Top 5, if not, inexplicably, Soundscan's.

Red-Hot Cobra Starship, the latest Decaydance/Fueled by Ramen release (home of Panic at the Disco, among others), distributed by Atlantic, are the next heighest debut at 40-45k, fueled by the Top 5 single, “Good Girls Go Bad,” featuring Gossip Girls’ Leighton Meester. The band’s led by clever Gabe Saporta, who fronted the group Midtown on Columbia several years ago.

Valory country singer/songwriter Justin Moore’s self-titled album could do in the 34-37k range, thanks to a hit single on the format, “Small Town USA.”

E1 (formerly Koch) rap all-star group Slaughterhouse, consisting of Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce Da 5’9”, should do between 23-25k.

Mercury/IDJ country pop pin-up Jessie James debuts with between 18-20k, while Vagrant thrash-rock perennials Thrice’s iTunes exclusive will net them 12-14k.

The market was up 1% vs. last week, down 16% vs. same week last year and still down 14% year to date.

Hey, what are you doing just sitting there? Go disrupt a town hall meeting or something.

Koch (E1) undershipped them, they only shipped that many copies so they sold out already and I've been getting plenty of Emails from people who havent been able to find it in stores, Amazon is out of stock, same with CDUniverse... Koch (E1) fucked up and underestimated the demand for this record.. I knew this was gonna happen.

Joe Budden just said he thinks e1 purposely did this so that slaughterhouse doesnt do big numbers first week.If they did big numbers a major would be more tempted to sign them,where as if they do low numbers they have to stick with e1.If you remeber jim jones did big numbers on koch first week then jumped to a major.Makes sense in a greasy label way.I mean slaughterhouse has the biggest buzz of any rap act in a long time and they only ship 30 k seems mad suspicious to me.

Well its been reported everywhere thats its sold out.Amazon and best buy are out of stock online along with a few others.What reason would e1 have for only shipping this many copies.Think about it.The last artist that did really well on the label was jim jones and he jumped ship to a majorThe albums in the top 5 in itunes.

It's kind of a catch 22. E1 really did not gauge the buzz too well like what Nima said and low balled the shipments. Attitude there is probably less is more to begin with. Only problem with that analogy is you need to continue the buzz and interest along with supply more stores with copies for purchase.

e1 probably didn't expect anyone to buy the album. i sure as hell haven't heard anyone in real life tell me they're picking it up.

It was stupid of them not to ship out more, but I don't think they're trying to sabotage Slaughterhouse.

Joe needs to lay off the pills...

That's another thing. Only majors can force the stores to take more than they want. E1 just needs good salesmen who convince the stores that they better take more than

10 fuckin copies. But it's difficult, especially with the big retails.

Problem is people who wanna buy this and go to stores to get it looking around everywhere and cant will prob just go home and download it if they know they can.

On a good note, I know several ppl who have purchased more than 2 copys themselves (some even copped 1 copy for each member of Slaughterhouse, so if you have the money and enjoy the music and wanna support than go ahead). Im waiting for 2 online, I searched everywhere down here in Tasmania, Australia but couldnt find them in stores. I have downloaded it though and its a dope album, def worth AUS$29.95c each to me.

Although i agree the record company may have had a factor in this, the mainstream was never going to buy into this group, only real die hard lyracist fans of hip hop would even bother listening to this.
Say for example your average teeny bop, 50cent, game, flo-rida fan walks into there local music store and picks up the slaughter house album, They may remember joe budden from pump it up, probably not though. The wont know crooked i, may have heard of Royce through d12 and eminem and they sure as fuck would not have heard of joell ortiz. They put down the album and buy relapse again!!

Well Im hoping this is going to be one of those word of mouth albums that just keeps selling gradual numbers.Extensive touring is a big factor in this and rock the bells was a start and now going on a tour with tech n9ne will only further long term sales.Artists like atmosphere and cormega sell a 100,000 each album but you ask a casual person who they are and theyd scratch their head.Word of mouth and quality of product will sell this album long term.E1 did fuck up though and didnt anticipate the demand.In this world it was a miracle people went out to stores to buy the album,but then its being reported sold out everywhere people are just going to shrug their shoulders and say fuck it.Id say e1 fucked them out of 10,000 in first week sales.All in all though i think if they keep touring this album will do 100k in the long term.

I dont know but they should at least sell 50 000,I know so many ppl who have bought the Album and they never buy Albums.

Anyway ppl make fun of Joe Budden ? Joe Budden at least makes much money,no matter if he sells 20 000 Albums or whatever, he only got 40 000 Euros for beeing in a Vid or a german rapper,and 16 000 Euros for rapping 2 lines........who gives a fuck aout MC Eiht that nigga doesnt even have 40 000 on his Bank account

C'mon Nima man stop acting like sales don't matter....especially when the majority of rappers lie about how much they sold and what they're worth. The rappers are the ones who make it a big deal and the reality is....record companies make their money off of the sells.....so it does effect they're bottom line and believe me it matters when they decide what albums to put out and how much to invest....and I know the rappers make their money off of shows and other outlets...but the numbers do matter to them because it effects the negotians of their next contract...it also shows there relevance in hip-hop commercially.

Just because they didn't sell well doesn't mean it's not a good album.....infact the album is dope....but times change and in these days and times it matters to someone...... or record companies would give the shit away for free......

You got a great fucking album, be happy about it and stop worrying about how much money another man makes.

When did fuckin' rap fans start worrying about the salary of the artists 24/7?

when 50 cent became popular

Oh yeah because 50 was the first rapper to boast about money  ::)

No, but he made the whole 1st week sales thing more important than it is(I know Jay talked bragged about it before but 50 cent really really was the one who started the whole "1st week sales" shit)

Daymmme I went to my local Best Buy and they all out of Slaughterhouse CDs. Gonna have to wait till next week homie. Da album is fuckin sick i don't undastand mafuckas that can't appreciate good music............................Rapreviews gave these niggas 9/10 callin it the best album of da year so far.
Heres da review:

"Lyrical murderer, blame Rakim
I'm a sniper shootin my way into your lame top ten
Pistol at your head if I ain't next to Eminem
Then I bust in your face like Lil' Kim
Niggaz better pray to the lyrical Lord
that I fall off like the umbilical cord before I fill up the morgue
This is how a killer record
with the double-edged triple syllable sword, I'm iller than all
Dineri, seem I'm a literary genius
Bury niggaz with words, a cemetery linguist
Most rappers are comedy gold
They like they boyfriend's sodomy hole, they full of SHIT!"

Parental advisory - driving around while listening to the self-titled Slaughterhouse album can be dangerous to your health. Possible symptoms include swerving uncontrollably due to spontaneous mirth and wrapping your shit around a telephone pole due to tears of laughter blinding your vision. The fearsome foursome of Joe Budden, Crooked I, Royce Da 5'9" and Joell Ortiz aren't playing around on their self-titled debut. They mean it quite literally when they say this is a Slaughterhouse, because people are going to wind up dead from listening to this album. If the side-splitting punchlines of the above quoted "Lyrical Murderers" don't do you in, the pounding bassline and heavy hitting black piano keys will have your head nodding so hard that it snaps and rolls off your shoulders. Give TheRealFocus... the respect he's due, and make sure you're wearing a neck brace when you do.

The formation of the Slaughterhouse crew is either a happy accident, intelligent design or the best of both. They first appeared together at the same time on one track on a Joe Budden album, and the chemistry was immediately apparent. All four men have a cult following on the internet among rap's most discerning fans, but seem to have a hard time translating that love into the kind of major label distribution and big number of units sold that they'd like. Forming a supergroup was the ultimate FUCK YOU to their naysayers and doubters. If you won't buy any of our individual albums, just TRY to deny four superstars all rocking at one time, top notch rappers who vow to "kill your career with one word" if you think you've got more lyrical ammo. How many rappers do you know who will brag "If you are what you eat, HOW COME I'M NOT PUSSY?" With punchlines taken to Chino XL levels of viciousness and beats to match, Slaughterhouse is so far ahead of the game that even the pre-release singles they leaked aren't dope enough to make the cut here. Take Royce's word for it when you hear his rapid-fire flow on "Onslaught 2":

"My niggaz is dimes, my bitches is dimes
I came up behind Eminen in 99 and I took the baton
I been runnin shit every since then, slaughtered MC's
Sittin watchin my green grow, like I'm waterin seeds
The problem with me is I'm the heart of the streets
Niggaz callin for beats, they can't even call the police
If I ain't better than you I'm harder to beat
Probably cause I live by the art of for-keeps
I get indicted after my product's released
We a different form, a different centrifugal force
Every line is like grippin on a stick shift in a Porsche
My niggaz asked for direction to go on this track
I said FUCK A DIRECTION, spazz out!"

Coming into "Slaughterhouse" I wanted to be skeptical, and think that even hot shit on the internet didn't make for a hot album. The Slaughterhouse crew upped the ante at every turn though, and some of these tracks were recorded so close to release date that there are R.I.P. Michael Jackson references. Did they literally LIVE in the studio making gems? You might think so. They had to have lived, breathed, eaten and shit hip-hop to come up with this abattoir of awesomeness. I'd like to be able to pick out songs to criticize on this fifteen track promo copy, but I'm struggling for something to complain about. MAYBE the beat on "Microphone" by The Alchemist could have been a little hotter, and when the only joint you can even consider picking on is an Alchemist track, that's a statement in itself. Playing this album at random is just as good as playing it straight through. I hit the button and land on "Pray (It's a Shame)" and fall in love. RealSon pours heartfelt soul into the track, and the crew all rap about their personal struggle to overcome the obstacles in life: "Growin' up in the hood'll leave your mind baffled/We put haters in the past like time travel/That's my murder story, I'm past purgatory/I need prayer though, Joey put a word in for me."

It's easy to tout albums as "the must-own summer release" or "potentially the best of the year" or any number of cliches that get used in hip-hop, but Slaughterhouse is figuratively and literally "Cuckoo" about their hip-hop craft - as quick to say fuck you as they are to say fuck a hook, yet entirely capable of making a hardcore rap song feel like a crossover track on "Not Tonight" to hook the mainstream. Guest rappers aren't really necessary on an album where every member of the crew is someone you'd use as a guest star in their own right, but Pharoahe Monch still shows up on "Salute" anyway, while Melanie Rutherford and C. Brown are on the stormy Emile produced "Killaz." So after 15 tracks of relentless rap warfare, what's left to say? Well, they could have skipped the skits. That's about it. Still Joe Budden can't even let up on the album's last track, so who can really complain?

"I disagreed with my shadow when he got on Twitter
Don't like being followed so I shot that nigga
A known loner; that's backwards
I'm a loner that's known to attempt to put a comber in a coma
You lookin at the prime suspect, with enough stress
If you can give a FLUCK, I can give a FLUCK less"

Whether you want to doubt it or not, there's just too much right about the self-titled Slaughterhouse for this album to be wrong. There aren't many times as a writer for this site that I'd like to a review an album twice, but as much as I like it right now I actually want to travel back in time like they do in these rhymes to see if I'd give it a perfect 10 later.

Although i agree the record company may have had a factor in this, the mainstream was never going to buy into this group, only real die hard lyracist fans of hip hop would even bother listening to this.
Say for example your average teeny bop, 50cent, game, flo-rida fan walks into there local music store and picks up the slaughter house album, They may remember joe budden from pump it up, probably not though. The wont know crooked i, may have heard of Royce through d12 and eminem and they sure as fuck would not have heard of joell ortiz. They put down the album and buy relapse again!!
Well Im hoping this is going to be one of those word of mouth albums that just keeps selling gradual numbers.Extensive touring is a big factor in this and rock the bells was a start and now going on a tour with tech n9ne will only further long term sales.Artists like atmosphere and cormega sell a 100,000 each album but you ask a casual person who they are and theyd scratch their head.Word of mouth and quality of product will sell this album long term.E1 did fuck up though and didnt anticipate the demand.In this world it was a miracle people went out to stores to buy the album,but then its being reported sold out everywhere people are just going to shrug their shoulders and say fuck it.Id say e1 fucked them out of 10,000 in first week sales.All in all though i think if they keep touring this album will do 100k in the long term.

thats pretty good for them. I expected them to sell somewhere near that cause there are 4 members from different regions (plus rock the bells must have had some impact). To me they haven't got the right chemistry yet but I applaud their attempt to bring back quality hip hop. The beats and topics could have been improved. Plus Crooked can be a bit annoying to me so that made it a bit less listenable...

Post by: GimmeYourShoes on August 14, 2009, 12:52:40 PM
25k, lets see what that makes in real money.

An artists gets about two dollars out of one sold CD so 25000 X 2 = 50000$ total. Now there's 4 band members. I don't think they have equal shares so Joe Budden gets 50% of the 50K since he's simply the best and has the biggest ego. Joel and Royce get both 20% ,I think. Crooked I gets only 10% since Long Beach's Employment Agency signed him as an intern to Slaughterhouse.
You probably wanna see how much the west coast's favorite rappers gets out of this after taxes and all expenses, huh? OK, 10% out of 50K is 5000. Not bad for an intern. Now the government wants its share of Crooked I's 5K which is totally understandable because everyone has to pay taxes. Income taxes for less than 8K is 10%, so 10% out of 5000 is 500 which leaves 4500$ to Crooked I. Well, it seems like Crooked I owes some child support money to his baby momma so Crooked I has to pay 2602 dollars and 46 cents. After paying his child support, Crooked I has 1897.54$ in his wallet. That wasn't all. Crooked I's old friend Big Mike is in jail for a bar fight and the bail is set to 1600 dollars. Crooked I has no choice but bail a brotha out.

After all expenses Crooked I gets 297 dollars and 54 cents out of Slaughterhouse. Not really Master P money but money nonetheless.

Thats because theyve been around for a long time now and do extensive touring.Slaughterhouse hasnt even been around a year yet and look how much attention theyve gained.If they keep working together and touring together they will be very well known.Its all about word of mouth.And considering this album is getting rave reviews from everywhere and everyone seems to be in love with the album they are well on their way.

Everyone said Daz flopped @ 20k with his sosodef album.

That was a different time, on a much bigger label. 22000 on an indy these days is pretty damn good I reckon. I mean look what Maino sold on a mjor with 2 huge singles

Final sales were 22,255, not bad, but pretty brutal for 4 well known rappers. Shouldve been AT LEAST 50k!!!

well known rappers ?  ::)

Ya, Crooked - West coast, Royce - Detroit, Ortiz - New York and Budden - Jersey and thats just where there from and most known at. Come on, you dont think they coulda easily pushed 50k? Each individual person cant push 12,500 copies? Sall good though, 22,255 aint bad now a days!!!

Just because each rapper can do 10k doesnt mean they have 40k of fans in total. Most Budden fans were already buying Royce albums. Plus Ortiz aint that big, Royce was big back in the day but not really know, Crooked gets internet hype and same with Budden. 20K was expected...
