After debuting at No. 1 last week, Kanye Westâ€™s Def Jam album â€œGraduationâ€ falls to No. 2 with 226,000, a sales slide of 76%. 50 Centâ€™s â€œCurtisâ€ does nearly the same, slipping 2-3 with 143,000 (-79%).
Wow, I knew the numbers would go down the second week but not by 80 percent, I was certain 50 Cent was going to out do Kanye West in the second week. This was great for hip hop in the first week but even our two biggest artist still fell victim to staggering record sales. 50 Cent is still not platinum his first week, I guess we will how these two make out for the 3rd week.
