Default Nas moves 355K units

Nas scores his third No. 1 on The Billboard 200 this week with his eighth studio set, "Hip Hop Is Dead." The Def Jam effort moved 355,000 copies last week in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The rapper's last effort, "Street's Disciple," peaked at No. 5 on the chart. Nas' two other sets to take the summit were 1999's "I Am... The Autobiography" and 1996's "It Was Written."

Following closely behind, the soundtrack to Disney's "Hannah Montana" climbs 3-2 in its ninth week on the chart with 349,000, a 28% sales boost. The Sony BMG Strategic Marketing Group/EMI/Universal/Zomba hits compilation "NOW 23" also moves up, 4-3, with 313,000 (+33%).

Carrie Underwood's "Some Hearts" (Arista/Arista Nashville) ascends 6-4 in its 58th week on the chart, moving 292,000 with a 47% surge. Sliding up 8-5, the Beatles' "Love" (Apple Corps Ltd./Capitol) shifted 282,000, a sales increase of 58%.

Bow Wow's "The Price of Fame" (Columbia) enters the chart at No. 6 with 262,000. It is the rapper's third-best charting week, as his 2003 effort "Unleashed" and 2005's "Wanted" both debuted at No. 3.

Josh Groban's "Awake" (143/Reprise) is down 5-7 despite a 15% increase to 255,000 while Daughtry's self-titled RCA debut falls 7-8 despite a 38% boost at 250,000.


Justin Timberlake's Jive album "FutureSex/LoveSounds" re-enters the top tier, rocketing 22-9 with a 98% sales increase to 230,000. Akon's "Konvicted" zooms 16-10 on a 60% increase to 227,000.

During the week leading up to Christmas, few other new titles were released. Among the top debuts are RBD's "Rebels" (EMI Televisa), which opened at No. 40 with 94,000, and Trick Daddy's "Back by Thug Demand" (Slip-N-Slide/Atlantic), which bowed at No. 48 on sales of 87,000.

Hip Hop ain't dead...nas killed it with the marketing this time around. he took the project into his hand. usually he's so laid back. i'm guessing the title alone helped him sell a few more records.

No. That's why I didn't say "Surprising."

thats pretty good considering the fact that the album wasent that good, altho Jay Z sold 700K his first week, so I guess it doesnt matter how quality it is.

That's awesome. The bullshit so called "hip-hop" radio station out here in Indianapolis doesn't even play Nas. So FUCK them, and fuck the radio in general if they don't recognize real Hip-Hop, and New York rawness.
