Wu doesnt even have much off a buzz here in NY anymore I doubt they will pass 100k first week but you never know the album is dope, Ghost did similar numbers last year with his 2 releases
ghost's 1st did well
but the 2nd flopped hard

yeah your right the first one did better I think it was released about the same time TI came out with King, the 2nd one got lost in the shuffle last December with all the other hip hop releases by Def Jam that month

60.19% now in

scarface at 44,850
drama still at 35,526 :-\
ghost at 25,982
wyclef at 23,608 still
styles still off the charts

don't understand how 10% can added in, and drama & wyclef at same shit

the 60.19% means sales have been counted in 60.19% of the stores which are considered in Soundscan sales numbers ...  once again it doesn't mean if your album is gonna sell 200 k if you are at 100k 50% in ... if the sales between 0-50% are mainly coming from Eastcoast stores, it's kinda obvious Ghostface will sell more than between 50%-100% where the sales came from South- WC stores .. that's a very simplified example but that's the logic behind the calcul ..

numbers are final

Scarface did 63,595. I'd say that's pretty decent for him 8)
Drama did 50,945. Also pretty good considering his album had NO mainstream buzz
Wyclef did 42,257. Better than it looked at 1st
Ghostface did 37,633
Styles P did 30,475

thats awful sales seeing as Scarface is king of the south. s.
^True..but Remember Face is frm the South..but his music style is different from majority of Southern Kinda Music!!
So it may take awhile for folks outside his fan-base to check in On Dude!!
But ti's still early!!

ghost's 1st did well
but the 2nd flopped hard

More Fish was just leftovers from the 1st album. It had no lead single other than I think a remix to one of the songs on Fishscale.

Decent numbers for Scarface. It would be nice to see him on a label that actually would promote him I think his numbers would be alot higher.
