"LOS ANGELES (Billboard) - Veteran rapper Nas is on course to notch his fifth No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 when data are issued Wednesday, but sales will likely be considerably lower than those for his previous release.

Nas' untitled Def Jam release -- originally set to be called "Nigger" -- sold 113,000 copies during its first three days of sale through Thursday, tracking firm Nielsen SoundScan said.

Nas' interim total is a tad behind the 116,000 that another rapper, Rick Ross, rang on "Trilla" during the same period in March. It went on to open at No. 1 with sales of 198,000 copies in its first six days.

Nas' last No. 1 album, "Hip-Hop Is Dead," arrived in late December 2006, selling 354,000 copies during Christmas week.

Rapper Lil Wayne currently leads the chart with "Tha Carter III," which sold 125,000 copies during the week ended July 13.

The interim tally for Nas' album represents un-weighted sales at nine leading music merchants -- Trans World Entertainment, Apple, Best Buy, Circuit City, Borders, Starbucks, Target, Anderson Merchandisers and Handleman Co. They account for about 80% of the U.S. album market. Anderson now services all Wal-Mart stores, which do not report directly to Nielsen SoundScan."

Guess I was right

actually the buzz been big with this album, everybody who's even moderatly into hip-hop have heard of the Nas album that was first titled "Nigger" and all the controversy around that title.. if this is true it shows how well that move worked!

it is a very good album and if albums like "Carter III" and "Graduation" manages to reach platinum then hell yeah Nas deserves it for this gem.

Im copping 2

Can I ask why?

I hear this sort of thing on this site a lot, but I never really get why. If you want one for the car and one for the house then why not just copy the cd? If it's to show support for the multi-millionaire Nas, then it seems somewhat misguided.

07-19-2008, 01:01 PM
Maybe he meant ''I'm copping too'' otherwise.. Can't see why.

07-19-2008, 01:25 PM
haha at buying more than one copy

07-19-2008, 02:12 PM
