10 Albums That Surprisingly Sold More Than The 24,000 Copies ‘Rich Gang’ Sold Its First Week

By 07.31.13

YMCMB is arguably the top rap label around, boasting megastars such as Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. Unfortunately, all that starpower – minus Drake – couldn’t convince a good amount of people to cop the label’s Rich Gang compilation featuring rap’s biggest names.

According to the numbers, Rich Gang sold an abysmal 24,000 copies its first week. Ouch. Didn’t see that coming.

Didn’t see these 10 albums having a better first week either. If only Baby had done what he allegedly does. Infla*coughs*.
