true...but they track sales, right? like right now he's at 901,000 or w.e SOLD or shipped?

901,000 sold.  That's what Soundscan tracks.  The RIAA tracks albums shipped, and issue certifications on that basis.  Paul Wall's first album went Plat even though it only sold about 700K because the label shipped 1 million copies.

^^^^ It happens a lot these days, and it's only likely to become more common now that record sales are down so much.

UGK On Topping The Charts: 'It Feels Good!' For Now ... (mtv news)

For two weeks in a row, two legendary hip-hop acts have debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart for the first time in their careers. Last week no other LP sold more than Common's Finding Forever,and on Wednesday, UGK were officially given the news that their long-awaited LP, Underground Kingz, is the highest-seller in the land.

Both well-respected acts have about 15 years of experience under their belts, so does their new place atop the charts bode well for the rest of the game? "Absolutely," UGK's Bun B answered. "The music is still here. People are still here to support you if you make good music.

"It feels good," he added. "But I really don't know how you're supposed to feel right now. We want to thank all the fans and the supporters who wanted to see this happen really more than we did. It's really vindication for the fans, for the cats who were fighting for years telling anyone who would listen that UGK was the sh--. It's really vindication for them."

While Bun is enjoying the group's long-overdue, well-deserved moment at #1, the Port Arthur, Texas, native says he has no delusions of grandeur.

"It's only for one week," he laughed. "[The soundtrack for] 'High School Musical 2' came out yesterday, so it's a wrap. We only have today. But it feels good today."

This is the type of record that should be sitting on the top of the charts every week. Real Hip Hop. Not Yung Joc or Mimms, fuck that shit.

They have been putting out good music for a good time and its finally paying off. I bought the cd and only one track I skipped. in a time of shitty cds. they put out a good cd thats worth the money and the time spent listening to it
