The numbers are in for Nas first week sales and it seems that Hip Hop Is Not Dead. Living legend and queens bridge native Nas stumps the competition by debuting at No.1 on the Hip Hop charts. With his lead single “Hip Hop is Dead” and his collabo with with Hova “Black Republican” has created much buzz for his new album.
With all the arguments that Nas has caused due to his album title “Hip Hop is Dead”, it's no wonder he debut at number one. The sales for Hip-Hop is Dead, Nas' first release on Def Jam which features cameos with The Game, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West to name a few, read off at 355,000. How is that for being dead, I guess hip hop is alive and kicking.
